Taylor's 1st day of Kindergarten

I was so excited for Taylor this morning. She was so excited to go to school. We got ready ate breakfast and left for school. She was all excited! As soon as we got to the school....BAM! She didn't want a thing to do with Kindergarten. She begged me to take her home and try again next year. It took about 15 minutes for me to get her in there then I turned and walked out of the room. Of course I stayed outside the door for a few minutes to make sure she was okay and she was! When I picked her up she was so happy. She said I love school I can't wait to come back tomorrow. Taylor said now I know what kindergarten is like and I love it!!!!! I'm so excited for her. She's so smart already, I can't wait to see how she progresses this school year!

Frist Day of 2nd grade!

Karson just started the 2nd grade! Wow, time sure flies! I'm so excited for him to grow and learn throughout his years. It was a pretty hard day for me. I wanted to walk him to class give him a big kiss and take pictures every step of the way. But...He wanted to do it himself. (sniff, sniff) I'm super impressed with his ability to do things independently. Karson has a lot of confidence in himself. I follow in that way of thinking, but it's still a little hard! I am so proud of Karson, what an honor it is for me of all people to be his mother! I love you Karson!

Taylor's 1st Tooth

Taylor lost her first tooth last week! It was so loose but she was a little scared for any of us to pull it out. Her and Karson walked outside and about 20 seconds later I hear screaming and the kids running in the garage. I opened the door to see what was going on and to my surprise they were smiling and Tay was saying...Mommy, Mommy my 'toof' came out! She was so proud. She called all her grandma's to tell them of her accomplishment!
