Tremaine Family meet Putt-Putt

We decided to take a day for just us as a family....the plans were to hang out at putt-putt for maybe an hour and a half, go eat lunch, head home for a nap, see a movie and go to dinner. Once we reached Putt-Putt we found it much more economical to purchase an all day deal for both boys and Joey could participate free (as Finn's driver on most rides). It was a great deal...unlimited golf, 40 tokens, hot dog and drink, and unlimited rides per person!! The kids had a wonderful time. They loved the go karts, bumper boats, and video games....but they were both still too young to golf. We all participated in the video bowling, basketball, finn rode a motorcycle, skee ball and many other random games where you waste 25 cents and get nothing in return!! We had already determined after perusing the "ticket redeeming counter" that we wanted to have enough tickets to get B a tiara. It could be purchased with a mere 150 tickets. We were fortunate enough to rack up enough tickets for a tiara, 2 bracelets, some pixie sticks, candy bracelet and a popper thingy! We all had a great time at Putt-Putt and decided we shall return in the Fall when it isn't quite as hot outside!

B's boo boo

Well, B was looking so very cute today.....that was until she fell on our driveway!! Though it didn't look like a hard fall, her face tells a different story. She cried hard. I attempted to put ice on her face, but that was a WAY NO GO!! So needless to say her face is VERY swollen and has little bloody scratches all over it....poor baby.

Aidan's first day of SECOND grade!

I can't believe it....Aidan's first day of second grade!! He really wasn't nervous at all. To embarrass him completely....last year before school, he visited the restroom 3x before we left the house and once when we got to school...very nervous tummy. Anyways, this year was great. He was calm and walked himself up the stairs and went right into his classroom. I was so proud....but sad.

The day ended a little scary though. When you sign in at Open House you tell how your child will get home ON THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL....bus, walk, car etc. And then you mark what they will normally take...which for aidan was: first day car, every other day bus. Well, somehow Aidan ended up coming home on the bus!!! So there was Joey waiting and waiting AND waiting up at school. Finally "they" figured out he rode the bus home!! Surprisingly I didn't freak out....i was just glad he made it home safely and on the correct bus!! ;) He didn't seem to that is what matters I guess!! Today, Tuesday, the second day of school, Joey got a call from the teach to make sure Aidan was going to ride the bus!! Teehee!!! I'm thinkin' that second grade is going to be hopefully educational!!!

a few ramblings....

well, b is finally, mostly walking! She figured out that if she takes much smaller steps closer together, that it is WAY easier....and she falls down WAY less! She is so cute toddling all over the place! Unfortunately today she got her face scratched by our less than obedient dog Brinkley. It didn't bleed much but it was really afraid it might leave a scar. :( She has a huge adult size band-aid on her face! She is a whiz on pointing out her nose, but we are still working on the ears, teeth, hair, etc.

Finn came up to me about a minute ago and spelled his name! F-I-N-L-E-Y!! So very proud of him. I often feel guilt not being able to sit and go over flash cards 5x a day with him like I did with Aidan. Aidan was reading the newspaper at 3, and Finn just isn't quite there. I hope that preschool will help out tremendously...but i am gonna try as much as possible to work with him!!! I love him so much, and I melt when he tells me he wants to give me a hug!

And then there was Aidan! My sweet boy....i was just told today what a great little guy he is!! I totally agree with that. He isn't really looking forward to starting back to school, but I think he is just nervous. I believe he will have another wonderful year....can't wait to meet his teacher this Thursday night at Open House! Second is that even possible?

i love my family....

time is passing...not always so quickly...

I realized today that it is just under 3 weeks till Aidan will start 2nd grade!! And exactly 4 weeks till Finn starts Preschool!!! I think they are both ready for a change....Aidan needs his structure and craves learning...Finn needs social interaction and craves playing! I can't believe that both my boys will be in school...however, it is time for this to happen. We are all getting sick of each other!! ;) I know that it will be difficult to see my babies grow up even more, but i know they are excited and ready!
