Off the grid for a while!

Hi! Remember us? Wow, it has been a while since we have blogged. I have had a pretty full plate the last few months (all good) and have just not kept up with getting the highlights posted! Literally just about every week has been stacked with out of town visitors, family gatherings and celebrations, or major home renovations. Of course, being the camera happy person that I am, I have lots of memories, pics and photoshows to share, so my goal is to post a recent event every day or so until I'm all caught up.

I think I'll start with today...quite a big day for our little man Carson. Today was his first day of school!!! I didn't sleep much last night, I was so anxious and nervous for this momentous occasion. I fought back the tears on the drive to Ascension Day School. We walked through the door to the two year old summer class and Carson headed straight for the sand box, then off to the trucks, then the train table. He completely avoided the little boy in the corner playing dress up in a Princess gown. Mommy...who's Mommy? I fought the urge to be a "helicopter mom" and left my big boy in very capable and compassionate hands for three whole hours. I may just try to enjoy this whole "me time" thing.

I guess it's time for Carson to leave the nest & go into the BIG world of Pre- School. I know he'll do well, he has had two good teachers in his Mom & Dad. Way to go Carson, make all of us proud.

What a big boy! It is so fun to see him growing up. Y'all are such great parents and it shows in his confidence to try and enjoy new things.
