The lone ranger

My last year with the little man all to myself. I just couldn't send him off to preschool this year. I have such a great time with my little helper. Troy is such a joy to be around. He is always singing. If fact right now I can hear a little rendition of "There's a hole in the bottom of the Sea." He is bugging me to get out the door for our walk. I just love chatting with this kid. He is almost 4 years old and he just talks and talks. He loves having some alone time with me, and I am super excited to start our own little preschool together. I never knew how hard it would be to be a mother. Nor could I have comprehended the joy that comes from every giggle, touch, or laugh of these sweet boys. I'm so grateful for my husband who works so hard, so I can have the opportunity to be with our boys in our home.

Ahhh Kindergarten

Oh, my sweet Zacky went off to kindergarten today. He rode the big boy bus with Kolby. And was so excited to go. Zack has such a sweet heart. I just love that kid. I think I had a hard time figuring him out for the first part of his life. Because I'm just not sensitive the way he is. But now that I have figured it out, he is just the best! He will do anything to please me. If I ask him with love. And he is HILARIOUS! He doesn't mean to be. He is completely serious about every word that comes out of his mouth, and maybe that makes it all the more funny. Last night I (lovingly) asked him to go help his big brother clean his room and he said, "sure mom, but could you spare a minute to get this sawdust out of my eye first?" And sure enough, he did have sawdust in his eye from a ward party that his fabulous grandparents had taken him to. Cute kid. I hope that going to school doesn't toughen him up to much. I love my Zacky cuddles! (Kolby is waaaay to big for anything but a very quick cuddle)

Just sent my 1st, 2nd grader off to school

I can't believe how big Kolby is getting. Right before my eyes, he is turning into a little man. He was so excited to get off to school today. He's going to be in Mr. Jensons class. I'm excited for him to have a guy teacher. I really think he will respond well to him. He didn't want my help, he didn't even hug me goodbye. I'm not really one of those sad to see your kids go off to school, kind of moms, but I am sad to see him get so big that he doesn't need me anymore. He's such a great kid! I love who he is turning out to be! (most of the time, ha) He won't hardly sit still to let me take his picture anymore, but I told him that the first day of school pictures were not an option! He's kind of in a goofy shy stage, but I still think that he is so handsome! A mothers love I suppose!
