Cowboy Day, Chinese Food, and a Cousin!!!

Well, lets see, labor day weekend we didn't really do much. We set up the water slide for the boys. I did work on cleaning out and organizing the toy room for about 4 hours on Monday.

Tuesday was Cowboy day at Skyler's school for the Kindergarten classes. I guess it is something they have every year. The first week of school they were on the letter C and it ended with Cowboy day! Skyler wore his cowboy hat and made sure he had his belt on. He didn't have any boots but looked really cute anyway. His teacher gave him a red bandanna and that really finished the outfit. Here he is on his way to school!

Every Saturday morning the boys have swim lessons at 9am. Yesterday we went to swim lessons and then went over to get them both haircuts. They were both looking a little scruffy! After their haircuts they wanted to go out for Chinese food for lunch (brunch). We went over to Panda Express and then Rubio's Fish Tacos for me. We sat outside, the weather was beautiful! Here are a couple of pictures of the boys with their new cuts. Skyler lost his other tooth on top Friday night so now all he wants for Christmas are his two front teeth!!!

Finally we have a new little cousin. Alison had her baby on Friday 9/7 at 10:10 am. Everyone is healthy and the baby sure is cute!!! We are anxiously awaiting his name.

Well that is about all for me today!!!

Happy Sunday,
Love ya,

1st Day of School ~ Kindergarten

Well, lots of pictures today! Skyler started school August 20th and seems to really like it. The first picture is the front of Skyler's school. It is diagonally across the street from us. A pretty quick walk. The next two pictures are of Skyler out in front of the house. He is missing a tooth on top in the front and the other one is about ready to come out so it sticks out a little. He wanted me to make sure that I took a picture of his backpack, Pirates of course. He is in room 2 with Mrs. Garcia. We went into his room and found the desk with his name on it. When all the children had sat down Mrs. Garcia said ok everyone, turn around and tell your parents to have a good day, and say goodbye, and we the parents were dismissed!!! His teacher says he is focused and motivated! He seems to be doing quite well, really likes it and is making friends. On thing about Skyler, he is very social.

David is at his same preschool and has moved up to a pre-K class. I anticipate that he will be there this year and next as he will not turn five until October 08. That will give him a great foundation for school!

This morning I woke up to race sounds. A couple of years ago the boys got this racetrack and the cars that go with it. They are the ones that you shake and they go so at 6:55 they were racing away! They argue about who should sit in the middle.

Skyler got this great camera for his birthday in May and has been having a great time with it. We had to put new batteries in it yesterday and now it has a new lease on life. Here is a picture of Skyler taking a picture of me taking a picture of him!

Speaking of birthdays, David is busy planning his. It isn't until October, but every day he tells me something that he wants for his birthday! We are going to Disneyland for his birthday. I called and they do a birthday celebration where everyone gets a little cake to decorate and Micky and Minny come and sing happy birthday. We are going on October 6th if you want to join us!

Well, Shannon is leaving tomorrow for his annual fishing trip with the guys. He is starting to get a little squirly. I think I will venture into the toy room and clean up a little.

If you don't hear from me in a couple of days, send help, it means the toys won!

Happy Labor Day!!!

Love ya,
