Zane's Celebration

Back to Zane. His birthday pictures got kicked to the sidelines when school started.

The cool Birthday boy and his Diego sunglasses

We went to Chuck E. Cheese for his 4Th birthday. It was just the boys, hubby, Aunt Leslie and Haley. The next day we celebrated his bday and Grandma Barnett's with my family. Zane is so proud he turned four. I think his speech is slowly improving. The next stage for him is starting preschool on Monday. I will definitely post his big day! I am sad he will be gone from me during the day.

Giving Aunt Leslie kisses

The only kind of roller coater you will see him ride for a lonnggg while.

Happy Birthday To Us!!!

The Return of School

Today was the first day of 3rd and 1st grade for Evan and Trey. Zane starts pre-school next week. I think everyone did really good this year. Getting up was slightly hard for us....six a.m. is painful when you have been slacking for three months. I woke Evan up first and his words were......I am still tired I want to go back to sleep. Uh....sorry kiddo...time to go to school. Trey was his usual grumpiness....I am used to it....but it seemed to dissipate quicker this morning than most days. Huh.....maybe a trend? Once at school(and the same for sneak peek...yesterday)Trey changed personalities. He shut down and appeared sad with his head hung low. He would not even say hello to his kindergarten teacher from last year.

After school they had dentist appointments. The kiddies go to the dentist so this is nothing new BUT/So i am unsure if it was the fluoride treatment, the dentist or first day jitters but Trey threw up on the way home from the dentist. ALL OVER THE CAR SEAT and FLOOR. Totally gross. Thank goodness I have hard, plastic, washable mats that keep my car carpets safe. As usual....he feels much better afterwards and is ready to resume his life. What is new in the life of Trey!

Talking to his Aunt Leslie this evening Trey mentioned his love, Julia, was not in his class. He still says he will marry her. Hope his love fires keep up until 2ND grade because she is not around him in school this year.

Evan, of course, loves his teacher. He says she is super nice. He loves school and being around his friends. Evan is an easy going kid. Thank goodness. One thing that impressed me with Evan's teacher is that she has been at our school since it opened in 1987. That is over twenty years ago...and she taught way before that as well. And she looks so young.

Happy Birthday My Angel

Zane is 4 years old today!!!! Happy Birthday to Grandma Barnett! Both share their special day with each other.

Wow.......I do not have any babies anymore. Even though I will always consider Zane my baby since he is the last child. He is my angel, little man and monkey all rolled into one. Zane loves to sing. He loves his left thumb and tends to suck it when he is tired. He loves pulling and caressing mommy's and night. He needs to sleep with his Dora pillow.....Evan bought it originally for Trey when he was three years old and now Zane has assumed the pillow. His favorite pasttime is teasing his brothers by taking their toys and running away laughing. He loves the dogs and sometimes goes into their crates and visits with them. His favorite person...hands down is his cousin Haley(hay..we as he says it). When she is around....mommy is nonexistent. Evan and Trey have a nickname for him......BooBoo's.

Here is a picture montage of my sweetie.

Zane sucking his thumb and twirling his hair since mommy was taking the pic.

As soon as Zane comes up from the water he lifts his wet hair from his ears. This makes his hair look funny until he goes back underwater. Too cute!

Hay..Wee His favorite person!

Common Ground Park

The boys and I along with Uncle Carl and Grandma Barnett went to this really neat park in Lakeland last week. What makes it soooo neat? Just take a look at the pictures. Lakeland always seems to outdo itself. This town is always striving for self improvement. Just look around the town and see all the beautiful foliage they have planted. The cleanliness of the streets. The great parks for families. Now the town does have it not so wonderful parts. What town doesn't. But in general...Lakeland is a town for families...first and foremost!

Summer Evening Water Fun

Other things we have been up to this summer. Trying to keep cool and have fun at the same time. Sprinklers and water hoses!

Please my Florida friends do not hassle me about the water usage. I know we are in a drought. Count it toward my once a week watering day that I never ever use.
