Back to School Night

On Monday we had "Back to School Night" for Family Home Evening. We were excited to have family show up and share the night with us. Damon and Devon helped make pizza and then we talked about our theme for the new school year: "Be Your Best!" I will be continuing to remind Tyler and Damon of our theme throughout the year and hopefully they will also remind me.

Sending Damon to School

Can Damon really be old enough to go to Kindergarten? He was pretty excited that first day.
Can you guess what his favorite color is? Yep, BLUE!

I dropped him off the first day. I knew I wouldn't want to leave, so after class started, I hovered outside the door for a few min., fighting back tears. It was fun to watch him interact with the other kids, and I felt like I had composed myself. Then his teacher asked who was nervous about coming to school. She called on Damon to tell her why. He said, "I didn't want to leave my mom." That did it. I had to find the nearest exit as quickly as I could. I stumbled, through my tears, to the car and had a good cry. Then I wondered why I had planned on running errands after I dropped him off. However, I wasn't about to let my puffy eyes keep me from getting things done, so off I went.
Thank goodness for big sunglasses to hide behind.

Tuesday was the day to put him on the bus.

I was able to handle things a little better. A new exciting adventure for Damon. He was, again, very excited.

Doesn't that bus look way too big and Damon way too small? Maybe it's just me!

Training Wheels Free

Damon is so excited to be free of his training wheels. He had a good lesson in controlling his frustration, but he is determined and caught on so much faster than I thought he would.

Remember When.......

Here are the directions:
1. Add a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.
It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

I forgot how big the bubbles get when the jets are on. Damon was loving it!
By the way, we are loving the Olympics. Anyone else?

Summer fun!

Here are a few pictures of Damon enjoying the summer time.

We are really going to miss all the fun we have during the summer months. Tomorrow I have to register Damon for Kindergarten and I can't believe he won't be home with me all day anymore. I hope to be able to post lots more fun pictures of things we are planning to do over the next few weeks. What is everyone else planning to do with the rest of the summer?
