This Boy

Is a momma's boy. Actually he says "mommy baby" if I call him my boy. And he's right he will always be my baby and the baby of our little family.

He's been without his binky for 2 1/2 weeks and hasn't asked for it. I do catch him when trying to go to sleep at night with his fingers near or barely in his mouth. I'm really hoping he doesn't take after his sis and start sucking on them!

A little mean streak has been coming out lately. Probably more ornery than just plain mean, but I have to keep an eye on him. He holds his own with his Bub and sis that's for sure!

My Sawyer, love this little boy so much!

School, Devotions, Life :)

School officially started yesterday. With that comes new schedules and a little stress until its all figured out and everyone finds their groove and settles in.

Miss Bree is now a big 1st grader!

She told me her first day was wonderful. But full of learning classroom rules and such. Her year is starting out with a terrible allergy cough, but she has been a trooper and hopefully it will go away soon!

Jarrett is attending Free Spirit Preschool M W F from
8:15-11 with his best buddy Cole.

He finally talked to be about school last night during our devotion time. He says the read a story and had to be quite so they wouldn't wake up the bear.

I hope both my kids have a wonderful fun year and learn lots!

Mr. Saw has been sick since Saturday with fever but is much better today. I think he enjoys have all his toys to himself 3 mornings a week. He doesn't get mommy all to himself though. I'm keeping this cutie through the school year.

I mentioned our devotion time earlier. I got this awesome book that had 5 min devotions. Each night is about a different animal. The kids loved it and enjoyed discussing it at the end.

Example devotion.

Awana begins next week and I get a whole new crew of Puggles. I think it's gonna be an ornery bunch, but I'm sure we will have lots of fun.

I think that's all for now!

(I don't have any pictures of Sawyer on my phone from the past couple weeks do my next post will be all about him.)

Travel, Tractors, & Tongue

I was smothered with kisses from
my sweet boys as I put them to bed tonight. There's just something about little boys and their momma's.

Bree has had a low fever for 3 days now. Today being day 3 and it's only came up once. She's coughing, coughing, coughing. I think she had this same sickness the week before school last year.

We were up dark and early this morning, 5 am, to take my mom to a training in OKC then the kids and I came to Paden. We spent most of the day outside climbing on the tractor.

We love if here!

Jarrett has an appointment with Doctor Scott to get his frenulum checked out. He's pretty tongue tied so we are looking into getting his frenulum cut. Just a consultation tomorrow.

I guess this trip was our one last escape of the summer. School starts Monday.

I hope the teachers are ready for Bree and Jarrett.

Alabaster Caverns

We were kinda bored this afternoon so we decided to drive out to Alabaster Caverns. Scott and I have never been and we thought an hour walk through a 50-60 degree cave sounded good.

Exploring while we waited for our tour.

Attempted family pic.

I thought this was a cute picture to do. Of course I had to crop and rotate so it would be upside down!

Playing on the playground while we waited.

We had lots of fun.
Oh and I took Sawyers binky away yesterday evening. He's been intentionally peeing his pants. I told him one more time and I'd toss the binks so I did. We are 24 hrs binky free!

Bree's Pinterest Project

I've seen this on Pinterest several times and decided to let Bree have a go at it. It's not perfect but she loves it. Was super easy and after helping her with 2 of them I think we may have figured out how to do it better.

Front of shirt

Back (we learned from mistakes on the front and I like the back better)

We got the iron on bling from Walmart. All ya need to do this little project is a shirt, cups, rubber bands, several colored sharpies, and 91% rubbing alcohol.

Easy and fun!
