It's hard for me to believe that my little man has started pre-school. Yesterday was his first official day, and it was a huge success!! He was so excited. He picked out his clothes, got his back pack ready, and requested "pikey (mohawk) hair." I dropped Samantha off at my cousin Karen's house so that we could have a special morning. We talked the entire way to school, and he went right in like a big boy. When I said that I was leaving, Bobby's response was "okay mommy!" I was so proud of my little man. Can't wait to see how the rest of the week goes.
Ready to go

So excited he was running to the front door

I think it's this way

Putting his name in the basket

Making himself right at home

Hugh Taft Island

As a child we used to go to Hugh Taft Island to play, enjoy the beach, and we always had a wonderful time. It makes me so happy to be able to take my own kids now to the same place to enjoy the same things. And I love that other than the changes that mother nature has made to the island....it is exactly the same. Bobby loved being able to run around, on "an adventure", hunting for crocodiles and swimming in the "hot baths" (tide pools). I can't wait for next summer when I can take both the little ones!

Last Days of Summer

We have thoroughly enjoyed this summer. So much of our time has been spent in Wilmington, and I feel so fortunate to have such a wonderful place to visit and stay whenever we want to. We have enjoyed numerous trips to the beach and last time we even went to the park. On our most recent visit to my parents, Bobby told me that "This is our home too", referring to my parents house. It makes me so happy to think that he is as comfortable there as he is in his own house.
