I think that's a quote from MULAN. But maybe not. So, Isaac and Makayla are off to school. I feel like the summer went by way too fast and that Isaac is simply still my baby and not old enough to be a kindergartner. I had a harder time leaving him than I did Makayla last year. It might be because Makayla was almost a year older when she started kindergarten or maybe it's because she is a girl and more mature. Maybe it's because she was my first and got so much of my attention and one on one teaching. (or maybe I just love him more J/K) Anyways, I teared out leaving him Monday morning and I teared up at lunch when I went up to the school to eat lunch with them both, and than I really teared up when I was driving away at lunch and happened to catch his class running out to recess. Oh he is soooo cute.
Monday morning he was pretty quiet and than started asking Makayla little questions like "will I get to sit by you sissy?" "Makayla, where will I put my backpack and lunch?" etc. It was so cute. You could see his little brain trying to figure out how the day was going to go and realizing he didn't quite know what to do.
I'm home now with just Jackson. It's so great. I'd better start keeping my house cleaner than it was this summer. ugh it was so hard to keep up with all my munchkinz this summer.
Isaac has his first baseball practice tomorrow. I'm so excited for games to start. I'm a little nervous. He has two games a week and than one practice a week that's a lot of baseball. And trying to keep up with homework for two kids now.
I'm going to try and find an art class to put Makayla is this fall. She has a little friend that wants to do one too. So, maybe we can carpool:)

my sweet baby (not so baby anymore) is having more problems with his cute little head. the night i cut his hair, i noticed that it felt a little swollen. when i got up the next day, i thought it might have been a dream (nightmare) so, i checked his head again. sure enough, it was swollen. today jeremy and i took him to dr. barcello. his head surgeon. he asked me to watch it for a week or two and see if it gets bigger. if it does, then we'll do a ct scan. if it does, than we'll keep watching it and maybe it will go away.
so lets all pray that it goes away. i don't want him to have to go through that again. as he get older it worries me that he'll be scared of doctors for the rest of his life.
monday jeremy and i are taking the kids to the dentist for the first time. i know it's way over due. we didn't have dental for awhile and then when we got it, i kept putting it off. if you know my freaked out kids, you'd understand why. they are so scared to do anything and just the mention of the dentist sends them into fits. so wish me luck. i'll let you know how it goes.
I finished BREAKING DAWN on sunday. it was such a prefect ending to the series. I thought she did a really good job. i'm excited for the movie. it looks really good.
let the count down to school start. the kids go back in one week (25th) i'm so sad and so excited and so nervous and so thrilled and so anxious.

Lets take a vote. I need everyone to be honest and tell me which hair do you like better, on Jackson. I just cut his hair yesterday. It was getting pretty long. His hair is getting thicker. Which means he can get away with shorter hair and still not see the scar on his head.

today i cut makayla's hair. i took 6 1/2 inches off. she wanted it shorter, but it needs to be able to go in a pony tail. she's really been fighting me all summer about brushing and doing her hair. i guess i was sick of the long messy mop. so she convinced me to cute it. she looks cute. i tried to call jeremy before we cut it but he didn't answer. suprise jeremy, i hope you like it.

Grammy was here this last week. It was so much fun having her down here - the kids especially LOVE having any of their family down, and they think the world of their Grammy. My birthday just happened to be while Grammy was here, so Chauntel hooked it up for us to go to the Frisco Rough Riders baseball game for my birthday. it was a blast and I got a baseball during the game (of course when Chauntel was with the kids at the bathroom. At least Jackson and Grammy can vouch for me)
I worked all week, but got reports of all the stuff they did while I was gone. One of the things that Kaylagirl and Isaac did this week was get their first piano lessons! Makayla especially loved it. Isaac went along with it, and actually paid attention and was trying really hard. Makayla loves to learn anything new and having Grammy teach her was even better. She practiced all week (all on her own) and even set up a practice schedule reminding us that she needs to practice as soon as she wakes up so she doesn't forget what she learned the day before.
The other picture of her is of her birthday party that she went to today. It was a Hannah Montana party, so dressed up and went. We asked her how it went when she got home and she said that they didn't know who she was for a bit and then the girl said, "Makayla, is that you?" We thought she looked sooo cute.
I got a new guitar for my birthday-pics to come later;
Chauntel and Mom went with a group and went to Barnes and Noble at midnight to get the new Twilight book. I'm sure she'll want to say some about it- so I'll let her later.
