First Day of 1st Grade & Kindergarten!

The first day of school came way too quick! I can't believe that I have two boys in school now!! Where has the time gone?!? Anyway, the boys were up and ready to roll in the morning. Both were really excited!

Corbin refused to wear a nice "dress" shirt for the first day of school. He picked this one out all by himself! Corbin has a really nice 1st grade teacher. Her room is all decked out in a Cowboy/Mustang cute! He has 3 friends from his kindergarten class in his class this he's in heaven!

Look at my baby! I had a REALLY hard time last year when Corbin started school, but an even harder time this year...because Gage is almost a full year younger than Corbin was when he started. He didn't cry when I left him in his classroom! I cried the minute I hit the hallway. :(

The first 2 days were tear free. He had a little trouble this morning, but when I picked him up, he was all smiles!!

Kindergarten starts out with a temporary homeroom for the first week of school, so we find out his permanent homeroom on Friday! We are pretty sure it's going to be Corbin's kinder teacher...but we'll see and let ya know! ;)

Gage's Perry Backpack and lunchbox!

New backpack...same theme! Corbin went with Transformers again this year!

Hope the rest of the week goes well!! They are grumpy...but seem pretty happy...if that makes sense!

Until next time.

Party like a (soon-to-be) 5-year old!!!

For, at least, the past 2 months, Gage has had it set that he was going to have a Phineas and Ferb birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese! that is EXACTLY what he got!!! Above is one of the invites I created for the big event!!!

His birthday celebration happened this weekend, a few days before he actually turns 5. I'm sad that I have a soon-to-be 7 year old and a soon-to-be 5 year old...both headed to school this year. :( .....Okay...on with the fun stuff!

(my FAVORITE pic of my birthday boy!) Gage was super excited to get his party started and to see all his friends!

Before friends arrived, the two brothers took a spin! (this is going to be a real car all too soon!)

Corbin and Carson again...they played the whole time together!

I think the entire party...except the birthday boy! It was really hard to get any pictures because of how crowded this area was!

The birthday cake!!

The characters on the cake were actually zipper pulls for Gage's new Perry backpack! Here he is licking off the icing!

He got a cool crown and birthday necklace...which really made him happy!
