I saw this and my eyes welled up with tears, and then I showed our sweet Gypsy.  She lasted about 4 seconds, and then buried her head in her blanket and cried alligator tears.  (It's hard growing up, when all you want to do is just stay little.) I gave her a squeeze and told her she would always, always always be my baby.  To which she responded, "But, can I still sleep with you when I'm old?"

They Grow Up So Fast

The halloween costumes are purchased, and hidden deeply in a secret location.  There will be no hints, or whispers of a clue.  You will just have to wait, and see.  Muhaaaaaaaaaa

Soon, it will be time for the annual "clear the hunting trails and go to as many dollar stores as possible" weekend.  And, I couldn't help but shake my head when this picture popped up of Bennett's first hunting trip.
I remember it clearly, zipping him up his camouflage gear.  As B left the house with his Daddy, he was being lectured on how he had to be "very very quiet" in the woods.  Like no talking, no making noise, just tread carefully through nature.  And while Andy was trying to convince his mini-me that this was actually the expected behavior, the little boy was doing his best to convince his daddy that there had to be another way.

Final day of homecoming 2017 - can you tell we all are a little over it?  (For the record, today we all had the same theme for dressing up - Sabre Pride aka wear something blue.  It went over really well.)

After school, I dropped off the Studen Council Represtitive for his parade duties.  Then, zipped back home to pick up the rest of the Morning⭐ crew (and hot toddies).  The parade was my favorite of the season - nice and short.

You would think that a district that can successfully pull off a One District One Book campaign, and put the same book in the hands of every single student in every single building, would be able to coordinate dress up days in the various buildings.  But, they have yet to figure this one out, so the three school aged Proses continue to head to their respective buildings in their respective theme attire.  Today, the Mrs. donned her best Western Wear, the 5G'er was in his Decade Dress (the 70s, 1770s obviously), and the 2G'er in her finest PJs.
Thankfully tomorrow is Friday, and school pride day for everyone, and the end of these dress up days.
