Andrew is in school!

My big kindergarten boy!  Lunchbox and backpack ready! :)

Andrew:  Kindergarten & Jayden:  2nd grade

It was easier sending my 2nd child to school rather than 1st!  Andrew followed Jayden all over the playground when they first got there.  It's great having older siblings!  He told us the other day that the kids at school keep calling him "mini Jayden".  He's not so sure he likes it:)

He was so excited to ride the bus home on his 1st day!  I was a proud mama waiting for him with open arms!  He ran to to me, gave me a huge hug, and said "this was the best day of my life!!!"  Music to my ears!  :)

His enthusiasm didn't last for long:)  The 2nd day of school he came home, trudged up the driveway, and said "school is boring!".  Oh dear, dear!  Then the 3rd day about a 1/2 hour after being home looked like this. . .

Sound asleep!  He was exhausted!  Don't worry.  He loves school and has said so since then!  I think its so cute his different reactions:)  Typical Buzz:)

Buzz and cardinal scouts

For some reason buzz has always wanted to be a cardinal fan. He talks about the cardinals all the time and how he doesn't like the cubs.

Today we were talking about jayden signing up for cub scouts. We talked about all the fun outdoor activities that are done in the group. I could see buzz's wheels turning as he listened. Soon he blurts out "I want to sign up for cardinal scouts dad ".

Endure until the end!!

Have to share some very timely words from a song we sang at our church choir practice last night that hits home to me: 

"Has He called thee to the plough?
Onward go! onward go!
Night is coming, serve Him now;
Onward go!
Faith and love in service blend;
On His mighty arm depend;
Standing fast until the end,
Onward go!"

In Christ

Just wanted to make a call to prayer for all of or dear elder brothers during this important AC church conference week. May satan be cast out and exposed as the thief, cheat, and liar that he is! Glory be to our great God!

Andrew Great Quotes.....Wisconsin Edition!

Buzz has been cracking us up on our Wisconsin vacation.  Below are 2 great "Buzz Moments".

1.  Yesterday, as we were loading onto the boat to go skiing/tubing, Buzz innocently blurts out "why is it taking grandma so long?".  We told him he better get used to waiting on women, that is just how life is!

2.  Today the boys were playing ladder golf with grandpa Grimm.  When it was time to break for lunch, Andrew says "OK guys, let's pause".  Do you think he has been playing too many computer/video games??
