well thanks marie jolie for the input on the move to alaska. although i would love to go to alaska, at this point in our lives and with the crazy economy, we have voted no. for now. i foresee one day moving there, but yeah, the time just ain't right. especially not with my baby in kindergarten!

my Flint went to kindergarten yesterday. his brother cried a lot. he is four. they are super close. flint loved it! thank god! went again today and monte cried again. heartbreaking. i hope that this doesn't happen everyday for monte.

i am seeing him off to school and waiting for him to arrive at grandma's. at least for two more days. then my school starts and grandma will be getting him on and off of the school bus, which he thinks is a blast. no seatbelts. bouncy. and takes curves like a race car. every mothers nightmare. well hopefully the crazy bus driver calms down.

pictures soon. lots of projects to share. and a picture of the new school boy forthcoming! stay tuned.


  1. My oldest little guy starts kindergarten after Labor Day. He is already super-excited about this - he really enjoyed picking out his school supplies and backpack. His younger brother probably won't be too upset - he starts preschool around the same time, so will have something to look forward to himself. But, is it ever going to be crazy around here!

  2. Congrats to Flint! Amari starts Kindergarten after Labor Day, she's excited, I'm nervous.

  3. sounds like goodies are coming here...I am waiting...and congrats to Flint!
