Wow how time flies....

Today the day came where I walked my first born to his kindergarten classroom.
Five years seems like a long time but somehow it feels like just yesterday I held him,
kissed him, and cuddled his sweet tiny baby self.
A few months ago I was hit hard with emotion thinking of him starting school full time.
And today he was so excited, full of smiles and ready to start.
But as he walked in his class and found his seat, I realized how fast time has passed.
It is hard to leave him in the care of someone else for six hours.
And all day I was thinking of him.  He crowded my thoughts.
Is he having fun?  What is he doing?  Did he eat his lunch?
Does he miss Tanner, Daddy and I?  
But what an exciting journey has begun.
I picked him up and he was full of smiles.  Already making sure he gets to go back tomorrow.
A little part of me has to let go.  And realize that I can't always protect you.
And some days will be sad, some days will be lonely, but most will be wonderful.
Just keep being your sweet self little boy, because the world needs more hearts like yours!

Summer trip to SeaWorld

Autumn and I took the kids to SeaWorld last week.  It was fun although a good reminder why I don't go there too much in the summer...BUSY!  We hung out for a few hours.  The boys always have a lot of fun together so it was nice to let them run around and play.  We got to see the new turtle exhibit which was the hit.  Autumn and I were liking the nice air conditioned exhibits the best!

Good pictures with 4 boys are hard to get...this is decent!
 Buddies - about to be kindergartners this week!
 Checking out the turtles
 Again, hard to get a good photo!
