Flying High!

We made another trip to Iowa to see everyone and celebrate Braxton's birthday. The boys were super excited that they got to fly on an airplane. I was glad not to spend 4 days of our trip in a car with the boys. The trip went relatively smooth. The boys did well. We had fun while we were in Iowa and as always the boys were glad to see their friends and family. (more to come on that) Here are some pictures from our airport stay and airplane ride. Oh, and by the way . . . Braxton knows that Uncle Jorge builds airplanes and wants to tell everyone. He is so super impressed. He also like to tell everyone about the plane that crashed into the water (on the Hudson), how he remembers that is beyond me. We got some looks every time he brought that up!!

First Day of School

This has been a very crazy week. It has also been an emotional one as well. My sweet little boy started school this week. He is in Pre-K in New Home and so far, he loves it. I can not believe how fast time goes. It just does not seem like he should be so big, but he is and here we go. We have officially entered a new phase of our life . . . here we go.

We were in Iowa for meet the teacher night so we went early. Ms Bundy was kind enough to come and meet with us so that the first day would be a lot easier.

All smiles . . . or what ever that is.

The sign out in front of the school.

Showing Ms Bundy our real side . . . the tiger has been released.

Taking only a few minutes to make ourselves right at home. This will be a great year.

Brazos of course was right behind, doing everything brother does. (that is another post)

My big boy

Braxton and Ms Bundy

First day of school . . . I am ready to go mom . . . please stop with the pictures

Really, he was so ready to go, he did not want to look.

This was the best one I got.

Even when we were inside, he wanted to see what was going on everywhere else. Can't say that I blame him, but one picture would have been nice.

Finding his locker and putting his things away - he shares a locker with Regan

Sitting at his table - ready to learn

After school, tried again to get a picture - this is what I got.

And, one more look back.

And yet one more try at home - he just did not want his mother to have a good picture of his first day of school, so I have a lot of not so good ones.
We love you Braxton . . . we are ready to see what this year holds, you are an awesome little boy and we know you will make us proud.

Kitchen and Hall

I will post the pictures of the kitchen and hall but first I have to show off my sweet boys. Somehow I managed not to get a picture of Braxton this time, but never fret I will have more soon. MeMe and PaPaw have Braxton and Brazos today and last night so Andy and I took advantage of only having one child and decided to get some things done here at the house.
We at supper at The Last Maverick and came home and got to work. After about a hour we had an empty box and a Brayson that was really interested in playing in that box. He played for a little while but was more interested in following daddy with the hammer. Trying to help!

Okay, now on to the house. Here is the kitchen view from looking from the living room.
