It's nice to be a Dad...

Sean told me this morning that he can't wait to be a Dad when he turns 15... cause then he'll be old like me... and Dad's don't cry.

His reasoning is refreshing.

Whine and Cheese...

Ethan was whining tonight on the way to bed... after requesting that he stop the whining, I told him that if I wanted 'wine' I would drink it in a glass with ice... point was made.

Home on the range...

Daddy took Ethan to the range today... Ethan got to shoot my .22 and loved it!  He got home and was ready to head back out and shoot...

Here comes the tooth fairy...

Ethan lost his first tooth today!  He's so excited because he started first grade and lost his first tooth all in one week!  He's so proud of how big he has gotten...

Happy First Day of 1st Grade!

Ethan had his first day of 1st grade today... he's gotten so big overnight that he did not want me to help carry his school supplies.  He wanted to do everything by himself.  Amazing how one day they want you around and 24 hours later you completely embarrass them!

As you can see, I walked up with him... which means that I completely embarrassed him.  By the number of parents that walked their kids in, there were lots of embarrassed kids today!

A Day at the Ranch...

A friend of mine invited us along with her kid to check out the Galloping Grace Youth Ranch... It's a non-profit ranch that allows children to ride for free.  They get about a half an hour lesson and in return help around the ranch!  The boys cleaned up one of the pens and had lots of fun scooping poop!  They also make a card to send to people who donate to the ranch... it's a really neat concept!

Ethan taking the reigns for the first time!

Sean's going to go back in September... so we'll have to get video of him then!

Talk to our... agent?!?

I think the boys and I just got ourselves an agent... I've got to read through the contract and get resumes and headshots together, but the auditioning is done. I did learn that auditioning in front of your kids is a bit nerve racking!

Where was the Mommy?!?

Took the boys swimming yesterday...  Sean decided to 'monkey crawl' on the edge of the pool...  he was on the opposite side when I saw his hands slip off the wall!  I threw my towel off and jumped in with hat, sunglasses and shoes on... thank God for swim lessons and the fact that he kept his mouth closed!  He was fine and that was a 'scary' that I never want to feel again!

Hubby loved a minivan?!?

We drove the new Sienna today... they had this test drive thing set up outside the bookstore.  If we drove a Toyota around the parking lot, they would give us a $10 gift certificate... so we did.  I drove the Sienna and so did hubby.  It was nice and I was surprised at all of the 'comforts' they've put into it.  I told the Toyota guy that it has been years since I've driven a minivan... they guy said I shouldn't use that word... it's called a 'Swaggin' Wagon'... okey dokey!  I have to say that I liked the reclining seats in the back... they would have been really nice on our family vacation.  I probably won't give up my Expedition until it won't run anymore and then I'll give it CPR and drive for another year after that! 

I guess after that I'll drive the Sienna again... somehow I think I'll be able to get Hubby to test drive it again... I caught him telling a friend that he 'Loved' it!  So funny!
