Practice makes perfect

He's filling the house with music.

Granted, it's Yankee Doodle and Rockin Robin.

Giant 2nd grader

Today was the first day of school for E-man.  He was a little nervous and a little excited and a lot sleepy.  Last year he was the new kid at a new school so there was a lot more nerves and tears than this time around.  In fact I think this was the first "first day" I didn't shed a tear at all.  I guess I'm finally accepting the fact that he is going to grow up no matter how much I fight it....na....it's still hard as heck!  He has officially become the age where getting a genuine smile from him in a photo is a challenge.  He either wants to give me a crazy eyed fake smile or pose like Rico Suave.  It took more tries than I'd like to admit to get this shot and all in the midst of rushing to get to school on time.  And since our front door photo on the first day tradition has remained in tact I went ahead and threw together this little diddy.  
It's a mess but oh well.  The point is...look how BIG he is!!!  I mean seriously he's a giant now.

I am excited about his teacher this year.  She's young and fun and kind of adorable.  
E just keeps saying she's funny and since he loves to laugh I think it's a good match.  
Well, ready or not here we go!

I fell off the wagon. Hard.

It's been a super duper uber busy couple of weeks.  
I fell off the August Break wagon, HARD, but I am still smiling.

Getting to spend some time with my beautiful niece and sweet nephews who live out of state is worth it.

Here are some lovely wild flower photos to make up for it.  Yeah I said my own photos were lovely.  
That's allowed right?  Sometimes artists get a lil stoked off our own work, and that's ok.

We are wrapping up summer.  Summer is busy but I love it.  
I am sad to see it ending but I'm off now to make the most of what is left of it.  I hope you are doing the same!
