I just want to say, "I'm sorry," to all of my dear friends and family who read this blog. It may be awhile until I make posts, make comments on your blog, return phone calls . . . I am just swamped. And oh-so-tired. Between work, kids, grad school, internship, and the numerous other things I have volunteered myself for, I barely have time to sit and relax once I get home. I have not had a conference period in three days at work. I have not eaten lunch the last three days at work. I am actually feeling guilty right now that I am taking the time to make this post. My sweet daughter is turning 4 this weekend and I didn't even plan her a party. (Not that she knows the difference! She is just happy she got to take cupcakes to school today!)

I know this will all pass. I know that when I graduate in December 2008 I will be so happy. I will not know what to do with the time I will gain. But for now, I miss my family and friends . . . Thanks for letting me vent, and explain why I am not making comments or posts.

Starting Veggies!

Nolan got to start veggies this week. We are starting with the least allergenic (squash) and working our way through the list towards the most allergenic. Let's hope there are no more food allergies! Here is his first experience with squash.

First bite of squash . . .

Well, maybe I will try more . . .

Mom, just let me have the spoon!

I wonder if my finger tastes as good . . .

I think I like it, but I am not sure . . .

I'm a messy eater just like my sister!

Maybe I should add the foot . . .

Yes!!! Feet + squash = great fun and a bath for me!!

First Day of School

Kaylee started Preschool today. She was so excited. I am a little sad to say that she did not mind me leaving her. She was ready to go. And she was so proud of her new Princess lunchbox. Here are a few of my favorite pictures.

Who needs a thumb when you have toes?

Nolan loves to suck his toes. He does it all the time. Here are some examples:

This morning on the way to Kaylee's first day of school, she said, "Mom, Nolan is sucking his toes back here. Please don't let him do that in my class. I would be so embarassed!" She is such a teenager!

Nolan thinking, "I want the camera!"
