It's not often...

that Brennan gets comfy and falls asleep just anywhere anymore. One minute he was talking to Kolin and the next he was out like a light.

His eyelashes have always been really long.

Really Mom!

I was on the phone tonight with a girlfriend trying to figure out a good night/time for us to get together. The first thing I have to do is check the calendar. If I don't, I will most certainly double or even triple book myself. Been there, done that and would rather not do it again any time soon. As I'm checking out cheer schedules and volleyball schedules I overhear....

I like cheerleading!
You're the one who signed me up for volleyball!

Then after I got off the phone I heard:

I really do LIKE volleyball though! =)

It's a......

Perfectly healthy baby BOY!

R2D2 and Brennan

Brennan got to be the first one to find out if we were having a boy or girl. Kolin made him a super neat R2D2. Inside was a post it that told him boy or girl....

Boy or Girl????

That is the question being asked in our house lately. Jadyn refers to the baby as the 'Mystery Baby."

Brennan says: A boy...I stay, A girl...I runaway. I then remind him that if he's going to run away that he's not allowed to actually cross any roads. (I don't think he'd actually be gone very long)

My u/s is tomorrow afternoon. Cross your fingers and toes that baby cooperates and lets us know who is hanging out. It would make the whole baby naming process so much easier.

Bump Set Spike!

Jadyn's first volleyball game was this afternoon. She was nervous, but did a great job. I don't know that she'll continue to want to play after this short season, but I'm thrilled she's trying it out and giving it her all.

Brennan's 4-H Cloverbud meeting talked about spiders tonight and their role in the world. He even got to make some spiders and eventually eat them. =)

I HATE mosquitoes!

I especially hate what they do to Karis. We didn't notice when she went to sleep, but she obviously got bit a few times on the side of her face last night. She woke up this morning and literally could not open her eye. I felt absolutely awful.

A few hours later the eye was looking a little better. She still couldn't open it. She was finally able to open it about 1/2 way by dinner time.

Of Course

We couldn't leave the school without playing a bit on the equipment. Brennan and Taryn are our monkeys and they both LOVE the monkey bars!

It was a 'tad' warm out and some got a little sweaty.

Brennan's Back To School Night!

Brennan was so excited to show us his classroom and wear everything was. His teacher had put together a little scavenger hunt and we had fun following all the clues.

My 2 beautiful little girls

5 Days A Week!

It's going to get a little busier around our house.
Preschool started this morning and Karis is going 5 days a week this year.
I said I wouldn't send any of the kids 5 days a week, but having a late birthday and not being able to go to Kindergarten means Karis needs a little more to her day and she's ready for it!

Jadyn looks thrilled....

I signed Jadyn up for volleyball last week.
She's not really thrilled with the concept, but that's because it's something new.
It's a fundamentals league and she'll learn everything she needs to know without it being really least it's 'supposed' to be that way.

Oh, say can you see...


We Cheer & We Lead.....

Being one of the smallest girls, means that Jadyn is usually one of the flyers.
She seems to enjoy it.
For now they don't actually throw the girls up in the air or do any big stunts which is nice.


I just don't know what to think sometimes.....
The looks keep me guessing.
Today he wasn't happy that we were all going to watch Jadyn cheer.

Things that make you go....

Karis: Mom, my mouth hurts.
Me: Why does your mouth hurt?
Karis: A mosquito flew into my mouth, bit me and got back out!

What can you say to that?

Ham is what?

Brennan: Mom, Karis won't eat her ham.
Me: Why not?
Brennan: Jadyn told her it was from a pig.

Oh boy!

Needless to say Karis went on strike and refused to eat.

Oh Brennan....

Quite the face isn't it?
Doesn't it just make you want to give him a great big hug?
This is the face I usually get from him when he's trying to get me to agree to something I already said 'No' too.

Homework is in full swing!

Life as a new 6th grader is never boring, especially when it comes to homework. Jadyn never really complains about the amount of homework she might have. She gets home from school and immediately gets started.
