Soccer and Children's Museum

Connor's first game was last Thursday. He had fun, which is all that matters, but soccer may not be his best sport! He really did seem to have a great time, but he was more comfortable following the others around rather than getting in the middle of them and trying to get the ball. But, isn't he so cute in his soccer uniform!

Last Friday, the boys and I headed to Atlanta to spend a few hours with my parents at the Children's Museum and lunch. We had a great time! Connor loves that place. We haven't been in months, but as we were turning from Spring Street to Baker Street, Connor said, "We are almost there. We just have to turn into the parking garage now!" I was so impressed that he knew where we were on the road and that he remembered where we always park when we go there.

On this trip, Kyle was able to enjoy the museum, too. They have a baby area that he loved! He loved crawling in the tunnels climbing everything.

First Soccer Practice

Connor had his first soccer practice on Monday. He is playing in the 3-4 league with the Y. He had a great time at his first practice, but he preferred trying to kick goals than just running around kicking the ball! We are so excited for him that he is old enough to play in an organized sport. He has always loved playing ball at home, so we look forward to watching him play with others. It will be good for him to learn the rules and learn to play with others. And, it will be so much fun for us to watch him!

First Day of Preschool

Connor is going to K-3 Preschool on Tuesday and Thursdays this year. It is his first "school" experience and he is loving it so far! He missed the first week because he was sick, but he has now gone to preschool twice. He has done great! His teacher, Mrs. Head, said that he came right in and joined in without hesitation even after missing the first two days. She said he is great at following directions. He seems to really enjoy it. He has gotten to do show-in-tell, make cookies, play on the playground, sing at Chapel, learn about the letter "A" and make many new friends! I am so glad that he is enjoying it so much and I hope that he continues to enjoy it.

Here are a few pictures of Connor on his way to school on his first day.

We, of course, had to get a picture of Connor with "Puppy Dog" on the first day!

Showing off his new lunchbox...

And, he wanted a picture with Kyle...

We all four went to Chick-fil-A for breakfast before heading off to the first day. Breakfast of Champions!

Kyle has learned how to do "Touchdown"!  He loves for everyone around to do it with him, too!

My Little Angels!

Oh, how I love these boys! They make me smile all day! I am so blessed by these two little guys. I cannot imagine having sweeter, better kids! Of course, there are times that I lose my patience with them and times that Connor pitches a fit or something. But, most of the time, they are sweet, kind, loving, well-behaved little boys. They sleep great, they eat great, and they play great! They are both so laid back and easy (most of the time). They are exhausting, but so much fun! I am so blessed to get to stay home with them and enjoy their lives while they are so young! Some days are hard and long, but the benefits of being with these little guys makes it so worth it!

The bandage on Kyle's hand in the picture above is because he burned the top of his hand last week with my hair straightener. I was fixing my hair and he tried to pull up to stand and pulled on the cord which pulled the straightener out of my hand and onto his. He only cried for a minute, but it looked bad so I called the doctor. He prescribed a cream for it and told us to wrap it in gauze to keep it from getting infected. I have had to wrap it, tape it, wrap it again, and then double wrap it with tape just to have any hope of keeping the gauze on his hand! But, it is finally looking better and I was able to stop using the wrap today. Last week, he was healing from a black eye from falling off the bottom stairs and he had the wrap on his hand for the burn. He looked pretty pitiful!

Connor's First Day of Preschool!

Connor is supposed to start preschool (K-3) on Tuesday. He will go on Tuesday and Thursdays from 9-1. But, he has a fever today. So, he may not be going this week. We'll have to wait and see. Last Sunday, Kyle came down with a fever and had one for 5 days. I hope that Connor's does not last that long!

On Friday, Jeremy and I went to Connor's preschool for parent orientation and then, I took Connor back for Meet the Teacher. Connor's teacher, Mrs. Head, seems great! I think we will be very happy with her. I am sad that my baby is going to school...even if it is just preschool! But, I know that he will do great and he will love it. He did not want to leave Meet the Teacher because he was having so much fun in the classroom! He would have been perfectly happy if I had left him there for awhile! Preschool will be a great thing for Connor. It will help him to gain maturity and independence and social skills. He will love learning and playing with others his age. But, I hate the idea of him spending 4 hours twice a week without me! I will be teary on his first day (and he will probably run off to play without even waving good bye)!

Bubbles and Cowboys!

Kyle got the biggest kick out of bubbles last week! He loved them!

And, Connor loved blowing them!

Playing Outside

Connor and Kyle love playing outside! Here are some pictures of them playing in our backyard with the water table.I love to watch them play!

This is one of the best pictures that I have gotten of Connor in months! He usually makes funny faces or just turns his head so that he is not looking. He's so difficult with pictures lately, so I am so happy to have gotten this cute one!

Braves Game

The boys and I went to a Braves Game with my parents while we were in LaGrange. It was Kyle's first Braves game and he did great! Connor has been to so many games now that he knows exactly what to do and what fun things are there! He loves to go to Braves games!
