My baby is in Kindergarten!!!

After much anticipation, the day is finally here! I had no idea what to expect from him (or myself!!) He has been at a Montessori school for 4 years now, so he is used to being away from me. He is still my little mamas boy though! His teachers at Mont. have been like family to us, and I didnt know how he would now!
He sure doesnt look nervous or scared (can we go with no tears the rest of the morning?!?!?)"Mom..hurry up!"
Doesnt he look so handsome?!?!?

Him and Skylah walking to school! Thank goodness for her...she has really prepped him this last year keeping him "up to date" with all the stuff she does at school! I really think she helped ease him into this year!
Corky and Skylah..Miss 2nd Grader!!
We finally made it!!!
I am happy (and very PROUD) to report we had no tears...from either of us!!! lol

He went straight in and put his snack, lunch, and backpack up and sat in his seat! Thank goodness we had meet the teacher night, because he felt like he knew what he was doing today!!

My munchkin looked at me and said..."see you after school mom..I love you!"

No tears, no sad puppy faces, no hanging on to my leg...nada...just a smiling little guy about to color!!!

We'll see how Thursday goes..thats the last day I get to walk him into his class! Wednesday we have our "Boo Hoo" breakfast!

I cant wait to get him after school and see how his first day went! He will probably tell me.."I dont remember..we played outside, ate lunch, had snack!"

Hope everybody else had a great 1st Day back too!

Fantasy Football

I've heard about fantasy football for years now and never really got into it...
Well, I think I might join the bang wagon!
I'm not sure where to start, so any advice would be great!
I love to watch it, and am counting down the days until the season starts, so I figure why not?!?!?
Now I have to go find a league...I'll keep you posted on my team!!
Wish me luck (because I have no idea what I'm doing!)
P.S. Who would have ever thought back in my "I only want girls" day, drill team days, and prissy days that I would be mom to a boy and be playing fantasy football!?!?!)
P.S.S Speaking of moms w/ boys...check out this lovely contest going on over at The McMommy Chronicles!! She rocks!!!

All over the place...

This Monday has my mind all over the place...I'm worried, tired, nervous, and excited all in one!
---Update--- My mom got out of the hospital last night! She is home and doing good! Thanks for all your sweet messages!!
Tired & Worried because Saturday night my mom had to be taken to the hospital. She is a brittle diabetic and has been for almost 30 years. Her blood sugar got below 20 (which is VERY low and VERY scary) She was unconscious and had to be taken by ambulance :( I didn't leave the ER until 3:30 in the morning that night. Unfortunately, I am very used to this, but it still makes my heart hurt to see it happen. She is better now, just waiting on her doctor to release her. :)
Nervous because my baby starts kindergarten 2 weeks from today! I cant imagine dropping him off to "The Wild Unknown" lol I know he will be fine, and it will be harder for me, but I don't want him to grow up!!
while at the same time...
Excited because I know he will learn so much and make new friends so easily! We went school shopping and got his new football lunchbox, camo backpack, school supplies, new shoes and a bunch of new school clothes! (Old Navy is having a great sale right now!!) He has worn uniforms to his Montessori school for the last 4 years, so it was fun to do that shopping!
So anyways, I feel better already by talking about it all! ;) Everybody I have talked to today has had one of "those" days! Here's to a better week!!
(and everytime I need a smile today, I just look at that beautiful little countdown over to the right!!!!!!!!!)

Hair Color?!?!

I've always been a blonde...pretty much thought I always would be!
Last November I decided to go was a bit much at first, but it grew on me!
This last time, it was spring/summer and my hair dresser and I decided to put a little more blonde back in.
Now its time to go again, and I need a little help...who else to ask but you guys!?!?!
1. Blonde
2. Blonde w/ brown low lights!
3. Blonde w/ Dark brown low lights!
This was actually the week that we did it darker..the next 3 pictures were taken on the same day, so you can tell that it looks different from all angles!

So..can you help a girl out please!?!? 1,2, or 3?!?!
It may not look totally different to you guys, but it seems completely different to me! ;)
Happy Friday to you all..hope you have a wonderful weekend!
