School Fun

The boys first day of school was also my first day of school, so I didn't actually get to be there with my boys.  I took it harder than my boys.  All of the boys told me it was fine and they didn't really care.  John told me the big deal about the first day of school is a more a parent thing anyways.  I guess he is right.

 These two really do love each other.

 Gus' first day of first grade and John first day of fourth grade.

 These two have a bond that can never be broken.  This will be the last year they are ever at the same school together...kind of sad.

Anders had his first day of school the very next day.  He can't wait for next year when he gets to ride the bus.  I should start apologizing to our bus driver now.

John's Birthday

John turned 9 this year. 9.  That tiny little baby that cried all of the time turned into a squeaky voiced little boy who loved Thomas.  That Thomas loving fool suddenly grew up and is now in 4th grade.  I feel old.

 His "party" consisted of Debbie, Pam, Glenn, Sophie, and the Davis family.  Small yet fun.  As long as he gets cake and a cheap table cloth this kid is happy.

 He had a ton of helpers opening presents, but John didn't mind.  He likes being the center of attention.

 This year John requested an ice cream cake.  I tried my best.  I still need to play a bit with the whipped cream topping.

Chocolate cake with chocolate ice cream and cookie dough ice cream.

John had a great "party".
I still can't believe my baby is 9.
