Becoming a man is hard work

Nathan has decided he is old enough to mow the lawn on his own. He is 9 years old after all.
So who am I to stand in his way of doing his manly duties?
Brandon tried it out as well but found out he's not quite strong enough. Or tall enough. But he gave it his best effort.
Nathan though, he is strong enough. And tall enough (barely). He gave it his best effort and mowed the entire back yard. He is so proud of himself and I'm so excited that I have some help! He mowed and I trimmed and Brandon cheered us on. Then we went and got a chocolate milkshakes.
I'm going to have to see what other manly things around the house Nathan can do.

I mustache you a question...

Never mind...I'll shave it for later.

This was the boys' first full week of school. Nathan was student of the week in his class for showing responsibility and Brandon missed 2 days because he was sick with the croup.
So far, school is pretty fun.
Their mom tells corny jokes though. But they are still young enough to think she's pretty darn funny.
I wonder how much longer that will last?

First Day of School

D day finally arrived.
The boys woke up before the alarm went off, dressed and ready with goofy grins on their faces.
Only a few (hundred) tears were shed (by me).  
I was so excited to see them get off the bus. They raced up to the house and jumped into my arms. It was the best part of my day.
Nathan's favorite part was seeing his friends and playing at recess.
Brandon's favorite part was making new friends and playing at recess.
And they both can't wait to do it all over again tomorrow.
