LD's First Day

LD officially has a week of three-school under his belt. As expected, he absolutely loves it!!! He feels so big being able to go to school like his big sister! Plus he has two of his friends in his class, so he's enjoyed playing with them more than usual. So far, his favorite things are riding bikes during gym class and snacktime. It's been a bit of an adjustment for me to not have either of them for five hours every week, but I've been trying to be productive during those few hours and seem to find the time to fly by :)

Baby Girl's First Day

Madisyn's first day of Kindergarten was last week. She was so excited! I'm certain that I had a harder time accepting her going on her own than she did. She had all kinds of fun things to tell me about when she got home and since Landon was napping, we were able to spend some quality time talking about school... it was wonderful!

On a sidenote, she's a napper... and I was very concerned about her starting full days since she's not used to going without a nap. Needless to say, we've been blessed by an easy transition of she and I napping together when she gets home from school. After a wonderful one-on-one day with LD, it's really great to spend some cuddle time with Madisyn!

And speaking of LD... what did he want to do when sister was away? Play a computer game in his underwear :) Made me smile. When M's in school, he's an absolute angel! We've been able to do many things together, but he's also okay with playing on his own... without the interuption of anyone else (*wink* *wink*).

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

Tiece of Cake

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
