Flea shots

As I was speaking to the kids Dr's office about making an appointment for their flu shots, Brandon starts yelling "I don't want a flea shot!"

Flea's...flu bug...I guess it's all the same to a 4yr old.

Proud Mama

Look at that sweet face. His soul is just as sweet if not sweeter and I am so proud of him.
This is the second week in a row that he hasn't gotten any marks for talking in class (he has lots to say about lots of things) and he got all A's on his midterm report card. But I believe the thing I'm most proud of is he received three compliments from his fellow classmates. One was about being a good sport when playing games, another one thanked him for helping his friend run from the girls and being so awesome and the last one made my heart swell with pride. One of the girls in his class thanked Nathan for playing with her when no one else would.
I can't begin to tell you how that makes me feel. Nathan has always been a sweet little man but knowing that he's still like that out in the world without me reminding him to behave a certain way, makes me want to do the happy dance.

Lazy Day

Today Brandon stayed on the couch all day long.
He turned his blanket into a fort and all sorts of toys, books and my "music box" (MP3 player) were his entertainment. He watched cartoons from under the fort and tried to sneak some snacks in there too. He laughed and giggled the entire day.
It was a fun and lazy day for my little man.

Treasures from Grandmom and Pop-pop's

A trip to grandmom and pop-pop's house is always an adventure. There's places to run and hide, golf carts to ride and treasures to find.

This last trip yielded Geo's. The boys have never seen these before, so they were extremely excited to see what surprise was inside for them to discover.

They hunted and dug up 8 nice size Geo's, cleaned them up and hammered away. Once the first one cracked opened there was no stopping them. The crystals inside the rocks just amazed them. Showing off how strong they are was just an added bonus.

Once they smashed them all open we decided to show them off for the world to see. So we decorated our front porch with our newly acquired treasures from grandmom and pop-pop's house.

Taking the plunge

It's hotter than snot here today. Here's a few pictures to cool you off.

Fishin' Trip

Last weekend we took the boys for a picnic and their first ever fishing trip. They absolutely loved it. Once papaw got their hooks baited, they learned the art of casting their lines.

Nathan was proud as a peacock once he got the hang of it. He could cast it out just as far as I did.

Brandon really surprised all of us. He actually sat still. For longer than a minute! He loved casting out his own line and reeling it back in, over and over again.

The boys didn't catch anything but they had a great time and can't wait to go again.

After our fishing expedition we played at the playground for a little while, went to Dairy Queen for a refreshing treat and took a dip in the pool. It was a great, great day!

And that right there is how to gross out two little boys.
