back to school

If I am THIS excited for children to be back in school, when I don't have school-age children, I can only imagine how excited I will be 5 years from now.
(obvs this excitement will be mixed with sadness as I watch my little boy walk into his first day of school. probably not even waving good bye - similar to what I experience every sunday when he marches into nursery without even looking back. I mean, I'm allowed to be a little bit sad, I will have spent basically every day of the last 5 or 6 years with him by that point.)

I went to Heaven On Earth on Tuesday the day before school started, and it was quite possibly
the worst decision of my life.
It was more hellish than heavenly.
I thought the same thing when I went there on the first day of summer.

Rambunctious children. Everywhere.
Frantic mothers. Everywhere.

I am going there again today; looking forward to
blissful silence as I traipse through the aisles

I felt like I was camping this morning as I ate my Cheerios with a fork out of a mini plastic cup.
It's probably time to invest in some plastic spoons.

see kai run

Can we please talk about these shoes for a minute:

Now if only I could justify spending $30 or $40 on a pair of toddler shoes.

And don't even get me started on the girls shoes.

I need to take a minute to brag about my husband.
(feel free to skip the post / not comment, I won't be really offended)

He made the Dean's List this year at UVU. I am so proud.
I'm allowed to be proud - I had something to do with it right?
(should I mention the part where he found out like three days ago
and never said anything to me until Amber brought it up in conversation?
If I wasn't so proud I would have been so mad.)

And did I mention he accomplished this while working full time,
dealing with a wife, a toddler and a sis-in-law around the house as well?

I sure love that man.

Thanks for being wonderful Cory.
