"I hate Homework!!!!" That is an everyday phrase we hear around this house now and if truth be told nobody hates homework as much as this mama!!!! Of coarse I can't tell him that:) But seriously it is the longest most painful hour plus of my day! I will say this though the last two days have been better, lets hope it continues from here on out (Fingers, toes and all else crossed). Lets back up, I realize it has been many moons since i have posted anything and I am endeavoring to be better at posting because lets face it I don't write it down anywhere else. We had a very short lived summer it seemed... Mikie worked a ton, the kids and I hung out at the pool! Mikie and I ran away to Hawaii for an entire week and it was AMAZING. We have never left the kids for more than overnight since Trystan was born. It was soooooo time. The week flew by and Grandma and Grandpa held the fort down at home. I bet the week was much longer for them;) We came home and started getting ready for school.
Trystan started Kindergarten the end of August!!! First of all I have no idea when my baby got that big!! We knew it was going to be a major adjustment as he is not a fan of being away from his mommy. And adjustment it has been for sure. Of course this is the third week of school and the first full week of school he has had, but the last three days we have done drop off without tears HOORAY!!!! He does like his class, and he has made some good buddies already which is making actually going easier. He likes his teacher too. She is very cute and tiny... she is two inches shorter than I am!!! That's a rarity and I love standing next to her! lol. Trystan's best buddy in his class is named Trystin, his mom's name is Bree and his little sister that is just younger than Taylee is named Taylor. Kind of Twilght zone weird, but kinda cool. Taylee asks every five minutes if it is time to go get bubby yet. As much I was dreading all day Kindergarten I am kind of liking it! I love the one on one time with Taylee though she told me she did not like her mommy time:(
Trystan also started Gymnastics the week school started and he LOVES it! He has better balance than most of the girls in his class. Unfortunately he is the only boy in his class this term. I don't think he minds to much;) Outside of school work and gymnastics he spends probably way to much time playing mind craft but he builds some amazing things on there. I love this sensitive, sweet boy! and I am so proud of him!
We went to California over Labor Day and took the kids to Legoland and the Beach. Poor Taylee was 1/2 an inch to short to ride anything:( It was a long couple of days for her. But she absolutely LOVED the beach. With the hurricane that was brewing the waves were rough but Trystan loved every minute of it! He loves the boogie board. Taylee tried once with her dad and decided playing in the sand was more her thing. So we chased segals and built sand castles;) I loved watching them both run and play on the beach totally care free. Taylee had some awesome poses:)
Taylee is getting big fast!! She speaks like a little adult, is a little peanut like her mama, makes the best facial expressions and is moody as all get out!!! She is bossy, stubborn, independent and amazingly sweet. She loves life and doesn't take crap from anybody! I LOVE it:) She loves to help me around the house, loves her baby dolls and animals. We started swimming lessons the first of September and for now we are in the mommy and me swim class and she is older than all of the other kids by about a year. She loves swimming with the babies though. She loves to play doctor, color and draw, she also finds great joy in antagonizing her brother to tears.....
Not much new with the hubs and I. Mikie has been working lots of really long hours and weekends and I spend my days chasing the munchkins. Mikie is getting excited to go hunting in November. He drew an elk tag and his dad drew a sheep tag. Needless to say I am certain they are both counting down the days. As for me I am still at the hospital 1 day a week and for now that is PLENTY! I am so excited for fall and cool weather, boots, cozy clothes and pumpkin everything:)
