Kaden is doing so well in school. I am so proud of him. I remember my first day of school and how scared I was. Kaden had a new school, new place to live, and a new church all at once. He is doing so well with the transition and learning so much in school. He goes to Spanish, Computer, Art, Music, and Library all in Kindergarten.
People told me that Kindergarten changes your life and they were right. As hard as it was to just sit and watch him go to school I have also been so very proud of him at the same time.

Operation Paci Update

Karson has been a full 24 hrs technically longer without a paci. Yay I'm staying strong. He has only asked for it once today and didn't cry when I offered him his cup instead. I am so happy it's going well.

I think it's funny when I have to tell people not to say the P word.

Quality Time

I have been spending alot of quality time with this little guy. It's just the two of us most days. At first when Kaden started school I could tell Karson missed his bother. He is getting into a routine now and enjoying all the toys. I think he also likes being the only child during the day too.
Karson is also feeling much better this week I can always tell when his antibiotic kicks in.
Since he is feeling better this week I started operation paci. Karson has had a paci his whole life he just fell in love with it and the paci thing has just gotten out of hand since we moved to Garland. I really didn't want to take it away with the transition of moving here but right after we moved he would ask for it all the time. I gave him a few weeks to get adjusted and not be in pain from an ear infection when I decided to take it away. Yesterday right after he woke up I took it and hid them. He only cried a little for it but did great yesterday afternoon and went to sleep without crying.

Birthday Weekend

It's hard to believe my first born is 5 and in kindergarten. We wanted to make his Birthday very special. Because he had to go to school that day he had a special Birthday ordered lunch at school and cookies with his class.

Kaden getting ready for his big Chuckie Cheese party.

Scott was waiting for Kaden when he got home from school.
Then we went to Chuckie E Cheese

Lots of dancing and jumping around.

Karson ate a piece of cake all by himself.

The party went well. Friday night parties are the way to go at Chuckie E Cheese. When we got home Tim and I let Kaden stay up AS LATE as he wanted. This was a first and Kaden was so excited about it. On Saturday I took the boys to the Firewheel Town Center. Really cool place I love that we live 5 min. from it. Kaden got to spend his giftcard at build-a-bear.

Meet Chesy the rockstar horse.

Kaden had a busy fun weekend and we are looking forward to the 3 day weekend ahead to rest and relax after our really busy last few weeks.

Moving Day

Two weeks ago today we moved from Longview to Garland Texas. We are just about settled in and almost unpacked. Kaden loves his new school and is handling all this transition like a trouper. Karson has been very cuddly and attached to his paci since the move but has also had an ear infection through it all. It's hard to believe we have been here 2 weeks.

Kaden and Daddy on moving day. We found that 4 almost 5 year olds think a uhaul truck is the coolest thing in the world.

Kaden's new school had orientation. He only let me take a few pictures before he was done and refused to take anymore. This was meet the teacher and your classmates night. Kad only let me take a few pictures before the Mommy stop your embarrassing me thing started.

New Everything

We are finally getting settled in here in Garland. So much has happened in the last two weeks. I have taken so many pictures and I can finally share them.
