Everett's Post

 I love to look back on all the special moments and memories from when I take time to journal. I've been tryjng to write a lot more lately and one night Everett curled up next to me in his pajamas very curiouse about it. I read to him from when I was pregnant with him and the things I said to him before he was even born. Then I scanned along and read things to him about when he was a baby and the stuff I wanted to tell him then and the things I wanted to treasure and remember about him forever. He loved it so much. He asked if he could write something special in my journal as well. I did the writing for him while he told me exactly what to write down. He had so much fun doing it and loved to read it back to me just like he had written it a long time ago for me. I might let him write posts regularly here if he wants to, but so far writting together has been a lot of fun. Here's his little post straight from his heart. And just for reference the spider-man water bottle he talks about is a special one he got to pick out for school the other day during our shopping trip.

I love papa Jason, Gramma Roxy, Gramps, and Grammy. I love sister, Dada, Mama, and my dog! Probably I love mommy, and daddy, and sister again. I want to get bigger too. When I get 6 then I get bigger. I love all of people and I love Isaiah and Graham and little Isiaha[we have two Isaiah's in our family]. I keep crying when I watch TV too much. I just don't like to sit in time-out. I love to go to church to make stuff for my mommy. I want to go to school. I want to not do bad things and not get a spankin. I love to go to sleep. I want to get bigger and use mamas scissors. I love to take a bath and play with my sister and I love to turn on some music and write and I love to ring bells. I love to pull down the curtains. I love to get a water bottle from the store. I love to push the buttons on my spider-man cup and I love it so much!

And What A Week Its Beeeen!

What a week its been! David's been out of town for work, he's also had hunting, practicing, setting up and playing shows. He'll be out of town again all next week as well. So the kids have kept me so busy. Everett had his first day of preschool, Darby's been getting into every little thing she possibly can and constantly scavenges the floor for little goodies. She's also had more than her fill of spills this week and Everett decided to stuff a Lego up his nose between all of that. Motherhood keeps you on your toes, am I right?! But I'm so very thankful right now that we didn't have anything major to deal with in the end.

Everett seems to really like school. I never realized how much you have to prepare ahead of time for the school day(breakfasts, lunches, laundry)!!! Needless to say I personally enjoy the more laid back-no school days. But I'm glad he gets to go to school part time and has so much fun experiencing something new. He's growing up much too fast. 

P.S. How do all you other moms deal with the full time school? Having everything ready and being on time without being too stressed etc.?
