Field trip was a blast!!!

We had such a great time yesterday!! We had a meeting with the teacher to get instructions and find out which kiddo went with which chaperon. After we got our info we went to the classroom and they were watching a movie......well, once the kids saw Chase in the stroller that was the end of the movie! Ty got up from his seat and hugged me while all the other kids came up to see Chase. Tyler was so proud....he said "This is my baby brother!" and he had a huge smile on his face. I couldn't get over how all of the kids ohh'd and ahh'd over a baby! It was really sweet. After the teacher came back and made sure everyone had their lunches and knew who their buddy was, we headed out to the bus........I swear, the kids were more excited about riding the bus then going to the zoo! LOL We actually drove the van to the zoo and we got there before the bus did. When the buses pulled up, you could see that all the kids loved riding the bus!!! Here is a pic of Ty waiting to get off the bus at the zoo.......he was looking at the teacher, waiting to see when they could get off the bus;

Once we finally got to go inside, it was awesome!!! The kids had such a great time, and the buddy that Ty had was so good.........they had told Z that Ty's buddy was really hyper, but she wasn't hyper at ALL! She had great manners and was an amazing helper. We saw some REALLY beautiful animals.......Ty said his favorites were the zebras, elephants and rhinos:

I love the look on his face!

I honestly thought there were only 2 rhinos and a big rock....LOL!

There was an ostrich there that was hilarious!!!! When we first walked up he was running around in a huge circle. I got my camera out to try and get a pic of him running and he looked right at me and stopped in his tracks.......he came right up to the fence in front of me and pecked at the fence. After I got a few pics he ran off again and started doing a little "dance". LOL I think my favorites were the elephants and white tiger.....the white tiger was SO gorgeous, but he kept his back to me!!! I wish this pic would have turned out better....

Chase had a great time as well, even with his cold!! He really loved watching all the kids playing and running around. The only bad thing is, we lost his bottle at the end of the trip....and it was the only bottle I took with us!! :( I totally forgot to pack extra bottles. He still did very well, fact, he was SO wiped out he went to sleep a little after 5pm last night and didn't wake up until 5am this morning!! Woohoo!!! All in all it was a great trip!!!

Field trip day!!

So today is Ty's very first field trip at school! He has been talking about this day ever since we found out about the trip!!!! So faqr we are all going, but Chase and I have been sick since Monday so it really depends on how Chase is feeling this morning. I still feel like crud, but mainly because of this nasty cough I have. Chase still seems to be about the same as of last night, so we'll see how he is this morning to determine if he and I go. Poor little guy....his nose is stuffy and he has a cough. Everytime he coughs it just breaks my heart.....he'll be coughing and give me one of his gummy smiles and it kills me. :( He doesn't have a fever, so that's a good thing.

If I go i'll be sure to take lots of pics to share!!! Woohoo, I can't wait!!!

Parent/teacher conference

We had Ty's first teacher conference and it went great!! She told us how she is really impressed with how well mannered he is and how much he has improved with his writing and coloring since school started, and how he has come along way from the crying he did the first week or so of school. He does need to work on his fine motor skills and keeping focused on what is going on. She said he gets along great with the other kids and her, and even said "I love having him in my class.....he gets my jokes!" LOL She also said he is in a reading group and it's the highest there is. He'll bring his report card home tomorrow, but from what we saw he had almost all "E"'s which are excellent. We are so proud of him!!!!

Pregnancy/new baby blog

Well, i've decided to not post at my other blog anymore and just do the updates and things here. I'm not going to delete the blog though, as I want to be able to go back and read it every once in awhile.

One year ago today.....

We said good-bye to mom. It's so hard to believe she's been gone a year. I think about her constantly and still get the urge to call her when something exciting happens with the boys or when I need advice/help with something. I miss her so very much.

For those of you who are new to my blog, one year ago today my mom passed away due to ovarian cancer. She had surgery in May of 2008 and had lots of ups and downs before she finally went Home. Ladies, please please be sure to get your yearly exams. It can most certainly save your life.

We love and miss you, mom......
