Little Lizzy

For those of you non Floridians these little lizards are ALL OVER the place. I remember house hunting and being so freaked out because you just walk by the bushes and you hear them scurrying around, they cross your path as you go to walk out the door, they even wait for you on the mail box. It still kind of does freak me out when they get in the house but I have learned how to get them out. Well, since we have gotten the pool they love to sun themselves on the ladder (which we take out when the kids get out). I typically try and look at both sides, give it a little shake down before I put it back in the pool. Apparently I missed, little Lizzy, poor unfortunate soul, because the second the ladder hit the water I heard the flutter in the water. They are fast swimmers!!! A minute before these pictures were taken she was laying on her side with one front and one back leg sticking out of the water. Don't worry, I got her out with the net and freed her.

First day of first grade

I have tried to post this entry now about 15 times!! Something keeps happening when I go to post pictures, ENOUGH ALREADY!
Kai started first grade this year. He was excited to discover some of his good friends from last year were in his class. Kai loves school and was anxious to start this week. Kaden had a complete melt down when he figured out he wasn't going to school this year. Next year buddy. I look forward to next year, Kaden will be in school 1/2 day and Kai all day. It will be the first time in almost 8 years I'll have some time to myself. Woo-hoo! Kaden and I have actually had a nice, mellow week together this week, it has been nice.

Spikey Hair Kaden

If you are not "friends" with Matt on facebook you have not had the priviledge of seeing this great picture of Kaden yet. Matt and Kaden had some time alone last Friday night and this was the outcome. Matt fixed his hair and Kaden LOVED it. I feel like this truly gives you some insight into his personality.
