Schools Back in session

Today was Harley's first day in 4th grade. He had a good time and it seems to me like this year is going to be tougher with more 'learning' and less 'play'. He has to memorize all 50 states on a map and know their abbreviations. Boy, looks like I might be going to 4th grade with him because I'm sure there are lot of states' capitals/abbreviations that I don't know. He also has to read a lot for a big part of his over all grade. Harley has always enjoyed reading so I don't think we will have a problem with this. His teacher sent home a letter to us and it had a neat quote in it.
"In grades K-3 kids are learning to read, but from here on out kids are reading to learn."
He also has some projects that he has to do in Social Studies and Science. Grass Earth Lodge & Bug Collection HERE WE COME! HAHA

Tomorrow is Friday...and there isn't any softball!! What are we going to do? I think it's time to order up some Netflix again for the winter!

I have to share this because I thought it was funny/cute. Tonight we went to BWW (Buffalo Wild Wings) and we ordered Kaden some chicken strips with french fries. He has discovered that he loves to dip his fries in katchup, which is fine, but tonight he discovered that he can dip his finger in the katchup and suck it off. Oh if only I had a camera to capture that messy face and hands of his! It was cute!

Oh boy!

What does a mother do when her 9 year old boy wants to hang out and chat with his friends on myspace? And when her 9 year old boy wants a cell phone? Jeesh, kids want to grow up too fast these days! I keep telling him not until he is at least 12, but everyday he keeps asking again!

Sad, I know!

I am, and have been, officially ready for school to start!! I can't handle anymore 9 year olds!! The two 9 year olds require more of my time than the four toddlers I have in daycare.
Sad, I know!

I asked Harley the other day if he was ready for school; You want to know what his response was? "Yeah, because I get to wear my new Under Armour socks."
Sad, I know!

This summer has been exhausting between softball, volleyball, baseball, weddings & birthdays, and for the first time ever I am happy that summer is over.
Sad, I know!

Only one month to go and we will be making our trek to Minneapolis for the great Vikings game. I personally am looking more forward to the shopping!
Sad, I know!

Just some random pics....

18 Month Check Up

Today was Kaden's 18 month check up. Let me say, man that kid is big. He weighed in at 27 lbs 8 oz which puts him in the 75th percentile. His height was 34" which puts him in the 90th percentile, and finally his fat head measured in at 19.75" which lands him in the whopping 95th percentile. Mommy's little baby is getting too big :(
