The Day Has Come

The supplies were bought; clothes were bought; lunches all planned out, but I wasn't ready....Austin's first day of Kindergarten! He was ready, though!! He had a hard time going to sleep last night (who doesn't the night before the first day of school). He was excited to wake up with his daddy's I-phone as his alarm (his alarm has been ordered), got dressed all on his own, then came to the breakfast table. When asked what he wanted for breakfast, he ordered bacon, eggs, and toast. Then we were off...


I walked Austin into his school so he wouldn't get lost, but the funny story is as we were walking down the hall, I started to go into the class, and Austin wasn't with me anymore. I looked in front of me, to the side, behind me, and all I saw was lots of students and parents but no Austin. I thought, Oh poor thing, he went into the wrong classroom. So I went back, and found him, but it wasn't the wrong classroom. Austin knew right where he was going, I was the one getting lost. I guess he is all grown-up! He went right in, put his backpack in his locker, and went to a table to color. Jeff had lunch with him today, and said he is doing great. He was excited about his "napkin note" because there were several kids who had them!

Here is his teacher, Mrs. Baker. Annie-you might know her?? She is from the Owasso 4 year old program. I was excited to see that she is a Christian and vocal about it. She had her information up for Student of the Week, and included in that was that she was a child of God, and her favorite book was the Bible. She also sent home a paper about herself, and included in that was that she has been a member of First Baptist Church for 6 years and is very involved. I was so relieved and happy, since I was nervous for Austin to go to a public school! God is good!

It's All About Casen!

In case you didn't know, that is the name of our 3rd son. The one I feel every now and then moving inside of me, but I have yet to believe that I am actually having a baby. I think when my labor starts, that's when it's all going to hit that I am having a third child. Until are some pictures of his home now (me) and his home to be (his room).

Here is my 6 month belly. I know it is crooked, but my 5 year old son took it, and I was pretty proud of him.

This is what it looks like underneath the shirt. Those of you who haven't had kids thought pregnant bellies were all cute, until this.... (ps, I would like to think that the flash from the camera is what gave my stomach such a glare, but well, that would be wishful thinking :)

Here is a video of Casen's room.... (and for those who don't like videos, there are pictures underneath)

After all the opinions, I bet bedding that wasn't on my blog, imagine that.



I painted these letters, and I love them!! Jeff kept telling me they wouldn't work out, (he really knows how artistic ability wasn't given to me!), but I tried anyway, and yes there are alot of crooked lines, and I would be totally embarrassed to say how long they took me, I will say I stayed up until 4 in the morning, but it is my own special thing since I am not allowed to paint the room (again, Jeff knows that painting is not my talent)

These are the pictures my kids made for Casen's room. Austin tends to be more like me, he can't draw very well, and really doesn't care. I love that they have a part of his room, though!

It's been a looooong week, but it is done. Jeff did most of the work, and I think he did a great job!

Okay I wanted to ask Austin those questions, it seems like such a fun game. Here is what I got!

What does Mommy always say to you? No
What makes Mommy happy? for me to be nice
What makes Mommy sad? when I aggravate Brenden
How does Mommy make you laugh? when you say funny things like....shakey bootie (which I never say, and then he precedes to laugh and couldn't stop for the next question :)
How old is mommy? 30
How tall is Mommy? 40...?
What doesn't Mommy like to do? go to McDonalds
What is Mommy's job? to clean the whole house (then I should be fired)
How do you know Mommy loves you? cause you kiss me

I just realized that I don't have any recent photos of me and Austin (I guess I am always the one behind the camera, that's sad)
