A Pirate Party

I can't believe it, but it's happening, so it must be true! Jack has turned 5 and is starting Kindergarten next week Wednesday.

Jack is such a sweet and funny kid. He will do great in Kindergarten and I'm sure he'll love every minute of it.
We go to meet his teacher and drop off his school supplies on Tuesday and then Wednesday will be his first official day. I will be sure to bring a box of tissues with me.

Jack had a great birthday party last weekend. Jack wanted to do a pirate theme. He had two friends from daycare that are also five and his cousin Sophia that is 3 join him in pirate treasure hunting and treasure chest decorating. Jack wanted a pirate cake too. I had so much fun making that cake. Usually it doesn't bother me to cut the cakes that I've made, but with this one I actually was a little sad. It was just so cute.

Enjoy these last few days of summer.

Jack and Cooper

These pictures are from the beginning of July...I know, I'm slow.

Jack and Cooper met last summer and hit it off right away. They are about a year apart, but are both starting kindergarten in the fall. Cooper is from Texas and comes with his family every summer to visit his Grandma and Grandpa that happen to live next door to us.

Jack was so excited that Cooper was coming for a visit. We had just put Jack to bed, when I heard a little voice yelling Jack's name. Jack came flying out of his room and started yelling, "COOPER'S OUTSIDE!!!!" We had to let him go out and play. They hung out each night for 5 days!

We wish that Cooper and his family lived closer, because they sure are a lot of fun!

Out of the mouths of babes...or little boys

I took Jack to the doctor yesterday morning for a sore throat. While we were in the waiting room, waiting for the doctor, Jack started talking about chicken pox for some reason.
He said, "why is it called chicken pucks? Oh, I know why, because you wouldn't want someone to think you were talking about hockey pucks, so they called them chicken pucks".

It was so cute and so full of thought, that I couldn't correct him! What a guy!
