Pre K school picture

I can't get enough of this picture. Loving our PreK 4 boy in his full dress uniform. 


Here are a few things that have been going on with our world. 

Lots of riding our bike in the evening. 

Our bayou access at the park was flooded with rain. The usual tranquil waters turned muddy with debris. It was fun to check out and watch the water rush down. Glad to say its back to normal now. But look how high it got! Yikes. 

Daddy has been playing lots of golf. He had two different tournaments this week. It's nice to be the client now and get invited :)  
He deserves the golf because he has been working so hard. We are so so so proud of Daddy and his promotion to Chief Counsel!! Such a VIP in our lives :)
School has been keeping us busy! A magician visited and Jackson LOVED it, ever since he has been doing magic tricks for us. Ha We have our fall conferences in Oct and we are excited to hear how our boy is doing. He has been coming home with green check cards everyday which means excellent. So far so good!  

We have such a fun group of neighbors (out to dinner with the ladies on my street) and I'm looking forward to the neighborhood Halloween party! 
We still do weekly play dates with Jackson's best friend Elliott. We are sad that he is moving to Poland for 6 months. I haven't had the heart to tell Jack yet. I'm hoping 6 months passes by fast! Until then we are soaking up our time. We will be going to their ranch in Nov for a bestie weekend retreat. So fun and the boys can't wait! 

The other day we played hooky from school and had lunch with Daddy. What a treat!!

Last weekend I took Jack to the Children's Museum and we just happen to run into his school friend Ruslan. So fun!

Talk about getting older. Jack is starting to do things he was afraid of before! Go Jack!!

Happy mail day to Jack from Papa and Edith!! What a fun surprise to get this wall art of his name. Each block is a photo of an object which resembles a letter. Jack loved the baseball as the O in his name. Thanks so much!!! Oh and he also loved the bubble wrap an packing peanuts. Ha 

This guy has been practicing really hard at dressing himself. The life of an only child... Reading since 2 years old but can't dress himself because we do it for him. Oops :) at least he picked out matching shoes, right?

Well that's all for now. The boys are off at the donut shop and I'm going to enjoy my morning before Daddy leaves on his boys golf weekend. (I have a lot of nice wife points banked! Ha) 



Last night Jack and I had a date...we headed back up to school for Beach Bash Bingo. For $10 you got one bingo card, a raffle ticket (for fun boy prizes) and a Princes hamburger. What a deal!?
The bingo games paid out $25 cash each game. We tried our hardest to win but no such luck. So after about 4 games the kids got restless and resorted to the gym. Which was fine by me...get out all the energy you want! Jack was chasing a few 1st graders around so by the time we got home he was worn out! We are enjoying Regis so much!

Gran to the rescue

We had a double booking of events with myself to attend my HOA board meeting and Kevin to attend a client dinner. So we called up Gran last minute and she was so kind to come over with our family friend Gokul and watch Jack for a few hours. While they were playing games I overheard him correct her as she called herself Grandma and he said "you mean Gran". Ha
He kept them busy I'm certain!
Right before I left two of the neighbor boys walked into the house and said they wanted to come in and play with Jack. While normally I would have welcome those sweet loves in the house, Gran signed up to take care of one boy so I told the boys another time because Gran was here. One of the boys shrugged his shoulders like who cares I want to play with Jack not this lady Gran. Hahaha and he followed with "Oh it will be ok. Come on we won't be that rowdy". We all got a chuckle out it.

Thank y'all soooo much for coming over and letting our boy entertain you with candy land and all the other million games he made you play :)

Frozen Ropes

Jack went to his first Regis friend birthday at the cutest place called Frozen Ropes. They did all sorts of baseball related fun and the place was decorated so cute. The cake was amazing and the kids had a blast!
It was nice to chat with the moms while a "coach" from FR entertained the kids :)

Running the bases
Crawling backwards. This part was funny because Jack didn't want to lose so he turned around mid way and crawled faster then went back to crab walking so that he could win. Such a competitive little cheater :)

This was really cute, each child got a container of fruit and the Mom just put red/white tape on the container to make it look like a baseball.
