First day of school

Today was the day! Back to school for my little love :) I was a little nervous because even though he really likes his teacher you just never now...and like I thought might happen he woke up this morning not wanting to go to school. But we managed to get over that when I told him we could go pick some wild sunflowers and he could bring some to his teacher :) Then he was game :)
This is not a great picture & it is not his back to school outfit I got for him to wear but he felt more comfortable in this one so we went with it :)

Heading out :)
Peak-a-boo...these are for you :) well if you are his teacher :) he he
Car line...this is the point where it can go good or bad :) it went...
GOOD :) He was excited to give his new teacher her flowers :)
He was glad to see his last years co-teacher in car line :)
Back pack on and he is off :)
There goes my big boy!!! :) He had a good day and that makes me soooo happy!!! I'm hoping Wednesday & the rest of the year goes just as good :)

The country mouse & the city mouse :)

Today we went to my sweet young, single friend Pilar's new apartment :) She had been staying out here in Cypress( country...he he) and now she is living in the city :) She is just in love with her nieces and spends as much time with them as she can- they are so blessed to have such a cool, fun aunt :)
Here is my crazy little man :)
He so loves for his daddy to throw him :)
He could walk under the waterfall and not get wet :) He wouldn't look at the camera though :)
My sweet friend and her niece Alex
Love her :)
Evan being his crazy little self with Alex and Bella :)

Thank you for having us to your apartment Pilar! I am so honored to know such a fun loving spirit! And even though I didn't get a picture with your balloons and pie...we hope you have a wonderful birthday on Thursday :)

School bus??? school bus this year :) But I did get a little weepy seeing this school bus and thinking that my baby will be in big school next year!!! Where has the time gone??? I mean really the thought of Kindergarten...are you kidding me...My baby is getting big and there is nothing I can do about it :( I guess all I can do is enjoy everyday with him to the fullest because as of next year my baby will be a big Kindergardener...
But this year...this year he is big man on campus :) he he... 4yr old pre-k baby :) Today we had meet the teacher & class visits at the school :) Evan soooo loves his teacher and I could not be more thrilled!!!!!!! When we first got there she showed him how to sign in like they will do everyday when they get to school :)
Evan and his teacher looking at the Bee center :)

Gotta love the smile I get these days :)
Boys and there building blocks :)

He made his way through both rooms :)
Evan and Katie :)
Hard at work :)

I can not tell you all how super excited I am for this year!!! Evan really loves his teacher and their are a lot of really great kids and moms ( friends) in the class :) Here's to a great year!!!

Tonight GG came to play & stay with Evan while Bryan and I went to the yearly parent orientation at his school :)
But right before we left I had the great idea that they go check the mail...I really wanted Evan to run there and back to run some of his wild energy out but to my surprise his ants we ordered came in!!! I really didn't think they would as the caterpillar/butterflies said it was to hot in Texas we would have to do it in a cooler month :) But nope...the ants had arrived and of course Evan wanted to do it right then and there!
Ok little stinging/biting harvester better stay in your house! I love how when you order them it doesn't say a thing...then the ants arrive at your house and they give this huge warning about the ants...sweet :) Evan thought it was all too cool though :) And that's what it is all about right :)

Red Rover Red Rover Let Blake & Makena Come Over!!!

My dearest friend Brittany and her two little loves moved to Oklahoma 7 months ago and we have missed them ever since! I was able to see Brittany once since then and of course we talk on the phone :) As do our boys sometimes but the kids have not seen each other since they moved. Until Tuesday night!!! Brittany came to Houston for a visit :) And we could not be more happy about that!!! :)
Evan & Blake were sooooo excited to see one another!!! They truly started back as if they were never separated...wrestling and all :)
Makena, Rileigh, Blake & Evan :) This was about the best picture I got of these silly willies :)

They were all class mates at pre-school last year and they are really funny when they are all together...well at least they think so :)
The boys would wrestle one minute and hug the next...such sweet friends :)
Crazy critters right before they all ate :)

Sweet little Makena...she has grown so much!

The kiddos right before we all left :)

Today Evan and I went to the hotel they are staying at for a little swim date :)

I love the under water shots :)

Too cute!!!
They even jumped holding hands :) Their friendship is like no other :) I am not kidding when I say that...they seem to have an understanding with one another...They wrestle and both of them love it- never complaining and yet they are really sweet together! Yes, they get sick of one another as any friends do but for the most part it is far and few between!

Evan and sweet little Makena :)
My dear friend and her two wonderful children!!! God gave me such a gift when he put you in my life! :) We plan to see them at least one more time before they head back to Oklahoma so I won't get too weepy just yet :) But we do miss you girl and hope you come back soon :)
