Hello Again

Holy neglect, Batman!

This has been a long, crazy summer and now that school has started again it has gotten even crazier! I am attempting to get back on schedule, though, so look for more regular updating soon. In the meantime, let's get up to speed, shall we?

Henry:
Henry had a blast this summer. He is excited to be back at school- in the second grade and upstairs with the big kids. I can start to see him changing a bit and growing into himself. As we were getting ready this morning he refused to wear his Crocs because he wanted shoes he could run in. He has never expressed any interest in running before, in fact he generally rivals the two toed sloth in the speed category. I guess recess is going to be different this year! He also wouldn't let me walk him into school today, but blew me a kiss as he went in the front door on his own. I am reminding myself that it is my job to make sure he as the self confidence to get more independent but my baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaby! His teacher is a first year teacher straight out of college and she seems awesome. She is having them blog, which is awesome! I can't wait to see what they do with it. Henry also successfully tested for his green belt earlier this month!









And here are some pictures of some Alice and the Cheshire Cat longies from earlier this month:




Along with school, tkd and keeping up with the Crankys I somehow find myself as President of the PTA. Okay, okay, stop laughing, I know. It should be an interesting year...

Yes it is both sad and rewarding to see your little man grow up! Many more sad and rewarding milestone to come!! You're a good Mom! I must admit I never thought I would see the day that you would be President of the PTA. You continue to amaze me my little one! Not really a suprise! On another note.....the crankypant are adorable! Just love them! That's a cool mouth with all of the teeth!
