a happy dance

first full day of school. both mom and boy are doing a happy dance. it's amazing how much you can get done when you don't have a kid in tow. errands, exercise and even blogging. have i mentioned the boy no longer takes naps. so any mommy time i did have has been non-existant the last few months. hopefully i'll get some crafting done. already started with the boys new big boy room. i'll hopefully be sharing the transformation going on in there in some upcoming posts.

off to pick him up and hear how his day went. i'm super excited to hear how much he liked it. at least that's what i'm hoping.

first day ever

yes, i'm still around. busy as always. i thought i'd take a minute and give you a picture update of the boy. he's growing up way too fast, so i've got to take pics to capture all these milestone moments.

today he started school. although the sign gives the impression he's starting pre-k, he actually started pre-pre-pre-k. today was an ease-in day and he only went for a little over an hour. he did great. even got a sticker for using the bathroom on his own. love this little guy!!

well equipped

a good biker needs some fabulous accessories. i usually don't splurge on anything. most of what the boy has/wears is bought secondhand, on sale or a gift. for instance, shirt, helmet and bike all gifts.

when the boy first started riding his bike he would occasionally stop and pretend he was getting a drink from a camelbak. one, i was surprised he was pretending to do anything and two, i couldn't believe he remembered drinking out of one once as opposed the millions of times he's drunk out of a sippy cup. so when i saw this little camelbak at REI this past weekend i couldn't resist. the boy was very excited when we pulled it out for him. he immediately put it on and was off. i have to say it was a perfect gift for him!

swim fan

i'm pretty sure i've gone swimming more this year then i have any summer of my life. i'm just not a fan of the pool, the sun, etc. i was a weird kid. the boy on the other hand has become a great big fan of the water. pretty big change from earlier this summer. i'll have to post some pool shots but here's the boy after a day at the pool.
