The First Day of School!

Here are a couple of pictures of the kid's first day of school this year. As you know, Tayler is now in the 1st grade and this was Clayton's first day of Kindergarden. They are both doing very well. Although Jenny is now experiencing the other side of the education process. For instance, whenever I come home from work and ask them what they studied I get "I don't know". This of course is the last thing their teacher who spent so much time with them wants to hear. However, with a little prompting from her they are able to tell me all about what they learned. It is so exciting to see them in this stage in their life and to see how much they enjoy their school time.

Evil Doers of the World Beware!
Consider yourselves forewarned. There is a new super hero here to help right the wrong and restore justice, order and nap time to our chaotic, tired and cranky world. Don't let the cute face fool you into thinking this little girl is no threat. I guarantee you that what she lacks in stature she makes up for in pure attitute and spunk.

Her current mission? To conquer the ellusive Count Potty. Armed with her super safety goggles, jet-powered rain boots and super suit she will locate and defeat Count Potty by using him to do her dirty work....

The other day Tori walked in the room in Clayton's play saftey goggles, her rainboots and trainers to announce "I supa hewo, da da da". She's smiling for the camera (the little ham!) but before mommy took the pic she even had a stern "super hereo" countenance. Mommy was laughing so hard she could barely take the picture!

She trains for her super hero missions every day. She lowers herself into a squat, chants, "Ready, set, go!" and then tears around the house as fast as her little legs will take her, swinging one arm back and forth as she runs, the other arm held ridgidly at her side.
