Halloween fun!

Go Team Wilbur Racing!!! With race car driver, Carson wielding his Piston Cup and Daddy as the Pit Crew Chief, the checkered flag was a sure thing! Mia and I dressed as storybook characters Charlotte and Wilbur from Charlotte's Web. Never knew a cuter little pig than Mia!

Mia's First Day of Preschool

The day finally arrived...Mia's first day of school. Bittersweet for mommy, without a hitch for our big girl! She kicked off the day with a great night's sleep, as evidenced by the Don King hairdo.Getting her out of her pajamas was the biggest hurdle of the day. Carson insisted on being there to drop her off and what a genius idea that was. Of course, she does whatever big brother does, so when she saw him hugging his old teachers and friends and playing with toys, little sister followed his lead. She went straight for the play kitchen and Little People playset. I said my goodbyes and was the only one with tears! Now I know why my Mom and Dad had 7 children. They grow up so they just made more!!! One question, Mom, two is a challenge~how on earth did you get all of us out the door for school every day?I got a mid-morning call from the Director and she happily reported that Mia was having a wonderful day so far, no tears and acting like she had been there forever. So proud! Her day was filled with story and play time, art, lunch and rest time (she did not nap!) When we picked her up she was ecstatic to see us, but she didn't want to leave! I tempted her with ice cream from the Grove then we headed home for a much needed cat nap. Mia, we are so proud of's to a lifetime love of learning!!! Click below for a video of the day's events:
