Third Grade!!!

No, I CAN NOT believe it!!!!!  Can you????  Third Grade????  My baby boy!!  Yes, as rambunctious and wild as he is, there is such an innocence about him.  He can be so sweet, mannerly and PERFECT!! (Not all the time, but sometimes:)  He can be loving and helpful!  He gives me a kiss, he rubs my arm, he tells me he loves me, he snuggles up at night and wiggles in the chair, he steals my heart even when he makes me crazy!!!!!  When I see him at school, he turns his palm inward and waves me over.  I really need to film that wave.  It drives me crazy when I am on the way to a meeting, I see his class and I hear, "Mom, come here!"   Oh, how I know people are waiting.... but this boy wants me!  He needs me!  And, I might not always respond in the best way and I might get frustrated, and rattled... but I want him to know how much I love him and that I would do anything (that includes rappeling off of an arch, going to the ballpark today by myself to feed the pitching machine), yes.... I mean ANYTHING for him!

Open House

My "school son"!  He came to see me at Open House, oh I love this boy too!

Our new principal is beside Colton.  I worked with her at Springfield Elementary, so she feels like family!  Mrs. Newkirk is the Assistant Principal!

This is my family in Rincon!  I really can't imagine being here without them!

His best friend!

Ms. West, Colton's Third Grade Teacher!

She is wonderful!!!

Four teacher kids and my school son:)

And SK, if you are reading this.... Thank you SO much for what you said to me at the meeting last week! It really meant alot to me. I struggle with trying to be the best mom I can be and I feel like a failure every day! I hope he will appreciate the things I have done for him one day! I had never camped or slept in a tent before he came into this world! I put on my big girl panties a long time ago when it came to him experiencing life, now if I can just do it when I have to deal with his behavior:) and other people's response to it and him!

  1. I was just getting on here to ask where the first day of school picture was since I knew you all had started. Here it is! Still loving the trip post. We are planning one in a few years thanks to you all.
