"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do." -Edward Everett Hale

A Date With Two Knights

Most people would agree that going on a date with two boys is highly inappropriate. However, the Chick-fil-A Mother Son Date Knight is a definite exception. Especially when it's these two handsome fellas...


We enjoyed great food, a magician, and fun on the dance floor. And just in case mom got a little boring, we had friends on stand-by. 

As always, Chick-fil-A went above and beyond with customer service. I previously requested grilled chicken for Easton due to his food allergies. There was a person posted at the door specifically to tell us they had his food. Then after we had our picture taken and walked to the food line, a man appeared out of nowhere with Easton's meal. All before I could say a word. 


The photo booth and props were entertaining. But there was one problem. This green screen...


Didn't cooperate with my green dress..


Or maybe it was just another part of a magical evening.

20 Months

Oh how he's changed these past 20 months...

But thankfully some things have stayed the same...


And I'm hoping for at least another 20 months of snuggling with this boy.

A Grand Breakfast

I may not have been invited to the Grandparents Breakfast...


But I got to spend some extra time in my pajamas. 

And that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make.

An Epic Adventure

An afternoon spent at the biggest and best children's museum offered amazing adventures all around. 

From the littlest...


To the biggest...


And for all those dreamers in between...


The road to Indianapolis was short...


But the journey was epic.

She's Six!

Mondays aren't so bad when you finally get to go back to school after a three day weekend AND it's your birthday.

Then you come back from Spanish class and see Momma waiting in the classroom with cookies...


Finally, you walk home from school and find even more surprises before going to a favorite restaurant...


But that wasn't all. The birthday celebration actually began a few days ago with an extra special trip to the Star Theater in Russell Springs to see the Little Mermaid, live, on stage...


Six is off to a spectacular start...


Happy Birthday, Lila!

19 Months

Once again we've switched up Declan's day. While he used to catch his nap in the car line, now it's playground time at school while waiting on the walkers...


At 19 months he exhibits no fear and refuses to get down when it's time to go...


I'd say he's right on track.

A New Year...A New School

Our new house is a hop, skip, and a jump from great school. So close, actually, that I can even hear the intercom announcements from our yard. 

We've been bus riders, car riders, and now we're walkers...


While it's a great school, it is yet another new school for Piper. Three schools in three years, but this brave second grader handled it well...


That is, until mom started taking pictures at school...


Lila is just happy that school is back in session. The summer was long for this first grader...


Definitely in her element...


And ready or not, Kindergarten, here comes Levi...


I have to say, after three straight years of sending someone to Kindergarten, I've worried the most about this one. But it was all for nothing because he was named star student on the very first day. 

At least that's how he told it. Actually his name was on a star on the door and he thought he did pretty well. I reminded him that everyone's name was on a star on the door. 

But at the end of the day he was still on board even though "kindergarten is going to be harder than he thought it would be."


While they went straight to work, the rest of us enjoyed another Kindergarten Boo-Hoo Breakfast...


I'm thankful that Easton is hanging out with us another year. He can finally be in charge and he's a great help with Declan. 

Here's to fresh friends, a blank slate, and that new crayon smell!

Happy 1st Day of School!
