Reid School...Jaxon

Jaxon started 7th grade today!
He has to wear a uniform,
which I'm not sure how he feels about that!
and, as promised,
jaxon with his skateboard...

and the best part of my day:

I found this on my car as I came out of Famous Footwear...

I know I'm not the best driver in the world,
but I thought at least I could park a car,
apparently not.

What they wore...


first, the princess.
2nd grade
she picked out this little number
(and I had died and gone to heaven!)

Landon is almost getting too cool for school!

He picked out a pair of shorts just like Shawn's,
you can't really tell but they are brown and white pinstripe...

and then the lincs...Third grade!!!!

He told me about two weeks ago
that his tummy felt funny. I asked him what was wrong
and he said he was just too excited to wear his new clothes!
he just knows how to get to me, this one...

They all love their teachers
and had a great first day!
I think it's going to be a great year.
p.s. Jaxon starts tomorrow.

some of you know what mean little trick Santa pulled on my boys last year.
He brought them each a brand new skate board.
What's the trick?
It was just the board,
no wheels!
You see Santa knew the boys
and he knew that they would ride the boards in the winter,
and ruin them!
So the master plan was that the parents would buy wheels for birthdays in the spring.
There was only one flaw in the plan:
Wheels are spendy!!!!
well, the waiting ended a couple weeks ago,
and the boys are no longer taunted by that shiny board with no wheels.

And it's made for one heck-of-a fun summer!

p.s. Jaxon got wheels, also.
He was MIA during the pictures.

a little time travel anyone?

So, who has read this book:
"The Time Traveler's Wife"
Please tell me you have...
if not,
you must. (ok, it might not be for everyone, I just remembered this one part)

If you don't read,
GO see the movie!
and if you have read it
GO see the movie
and if you've already seen the movie,
then good job!

I cried.
Shawn cried. (shh don't tell him I told you)
Oh, who am I kidding, he won't care!!

I just need to know if it is as good as I think,
or if it's just because I LOOOOOOOVE
Rachel McAdams?!

I've loved her ever since "The Notebook".
What? You haven't seen it?
It's a must.
It's my #2 movie.

Oh no.
What is my #1 movie you ask?
THE WIZARD OF OZ. Please don't roll your eyes.
(it's very sentimental) and very symbolic I just found out!
And now...Time Traveler's Wife is #3.

happy five...
1. two soccer games today, both wins! Way to go boys!
2. Cutler's cookies. Milk chocolate, of course.
3. Grocery store hair dye. I can cover all my grays in the privacy of my own home! and there are many. (sniff, sniff)
4. races with my sister! (we work at the same company and see who can get done the quickest)
5. Burt's Bees chapstick. smells wonderful and also it's tinted!
