This kid cracks me up!!

I don’t know what it is about Miles but he makes me laugh all the time! He has an impish look (as seen in the photo) that makes me think he has more going on inside his little mind than I can imagine. I’ve always read that third children are charmers and entertainers. Well, he is definitely both those things! A friend of ours recommended that we read Kevin Leman’s Birth Order Book. I have to say that Dr. Leman has all three of our boys pegged… he is right on the money! I’m so thankful for the laughter this little guy brings to our life.

Back in the Saddle

After a busy first week of school, we sure enjoyed the weekend!!

We played games, built Lego vehicles, watched the Wizard of Oz, and ate good food. Boys are messy and loud (and it seems that every mosquito in Charleston found Davis while he was blowing bubbles in our yard yesterday), but they are inexplicably sweet. They have no idea why I’m always telling them to quiet down, clean up, use good manners, clip their nails and to come inside when mosquitoes are biting them instead of trying to catch them in a net! You see, I’m preparing them for their future wives who will appreciate my efforts 😉 But —  I love the crazy chaos of our household; even when it’s driving me crazy.

This morning, 5:30 came really early for me. But, once we got it going, I felt as if we were finally back in the saddle. The fall semester is in full swing.

Here are some fun photos from the past week:

Movie time!

Miles LOVES Mac & Cheese

Andolini’s Pizzeria

I love these special times with our family and appreciate it even more now that the bigger boys are back in school.

Psalm 127:3
Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.

A “lost” post recovered

The first week of school is behind us and we are starting the second one. My post from last week didn’t work from my iPhone so here it is:

August 16th, 2010

Well… Colin and Davis happily entered their classes this morning. There were no problems (except a teary-eyed mother!) Davis kept saying, “I’m thrilled to be in Kindergarten!” He was giddy with excitement. Their sweet teachers were so well-prepared for the morning and everything was perfect. On our way to school, it’s our routine to pray for our day. Today we prayed for a year filled with encouragement, friendship, and learning. I’m excited about watching the year unfold and seeing my children flourish. We love our school and know that they are in great hands with their teachers!

Here are a couple of photos. They are blurry but sweet memories. Colin took Davis by the hand and took him to his class. Precious 🙂

Goodbye Summer…

Where did the summer go?? I can’t believe that school begins again tomorrow. Colin is starting 1st grade and Davis is starting Kindergarten. You wouldn’t think that I’d have such a hard time with this but I really am struggling.

We had an absolutely magical summer. We celebrated two birthdays and Chad and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. We shared awesome time with family and friends and spent parts of the summer in a few beautiful places.

I’m increasingly aware of the fact that God gives us only so many days to spend on this earth. It’s up to us how we spend them. I’m always a little nostalgic at the end of summer vacation… I love this time with my family where schedules are a little looser, spontaneity is the norm, and family time trumps everything else. Goodbye summer…

Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
