Early Bird

Look who woke up at 4:30 this morning.

It's a good thing he's cute, that I was the one who finished off the coffee, and that 4:30 is NOT regular wake up time.

This weeks theme at is photojournalism. Head on over to view more entries.

What good is your first set of wheels if you can't make it go?

On a side note, I would like to thank everybody who shared my Keloland Spotlight Deal with your friends and family. You guys are amazing! And thank you to those who bought one of the deals. I look forward to working with you all!

Wes's first day of preschool

This is a classic Wes picture. He knows all my tricks.  He would not give me a normal smile, and I'm lucky he even looked at me.  But really, I didn't expect anything more from him! It wouldn't be Wes if I didn't have to work for the shot!

About his first day of school "it was a lot of fun!" and his favorite part was playing outside and painting!

Will's first day of kindergarten

Well, it came. I was dreading it, but the anticipation of the drop off was worse then the drop off itself.  Will was more then ready.  He picked out his new green shirt because it matched his eyes.  Picked out what he wanted for lunch, (a PBJ sandwich, chocolate pudding, apple, milk and a strawberry magic straw)..

At school we stayed for about 15 minutes, read a story, said our goodbyes, and I managed to hold off the tears until I walked out the door. 

Here he is... my little Will-da-beast all grown up!

Eye Challenge

Entering a challenge, and my first blog hop (it is the week of firsts) over at Willette Designs.  The challenge is to photograph your love one's eyes.  So, here is Wyatt.... again.  I LOVE his big blue eyes. 

Here is the blog hop!

Dragonflies are cool!  Really, I think they are!  They are all over the place and the boys spend hours catching them.  This one they "rescued" from the dogs water dish and it is the "biggest dragonfly in the WHOLE world"
