The End

Today marks the end of my maternity leave and it saddens me to even say it! Don't get me wrong I am excited to go back to work but to bring both boys to daycare each day and not be with them every minute is going to be hard! We will make the most of today, you can count on that!!

Saturday night we had our little Carter's baptism here in Brookings. The church either does it one Saturday a month or one Sunday and the Sunday date did not work so we did it after the 5pm mass on Saturday night.
We where very lucky to have lots of family and friends join us for the great event, thank you to eveyone we attended!!

One Step Closer

Yeah!!! We are one step closer to Carter sleeping in his crib. Yesterday he took his first nap in it and the nap was about 45 minutes so we are gaining ground! Not sure if it is just my boys or what but Trevor was the same way, he slept in his car seat until he was to big to fit in it. Both boys also LOVE the swing, most nights that is where Carter sleeps.

Yesterday was my mom's birthday and since I was still on maternity leave the boys and I decided to make all the kids in her class cupcakes and suprise her at school. So when Trevor was done with school we left right for Hendricks.
When we got there the 1st graders where eating lunch in the cafeteria so Trevor walked in holding a ballon and the cupcakes to suprise grandma! She was very happy to see us! When the kids where done eating we went back to her room and had cupcakes. Then they had story time and did an activity about a bus. We where going to head out but next was free play outside and Trevor just had to go with all the kids. When they came in they had popsicles (the treat my mom brought for her birthday). Trevor was having so much fun and was being such a good boy and listener that grandma asked him to stay at school with her the rest of the day. So Carter and I went home and Trevor went to computer class with the kids and then to PE and off to the classroom for more learning. He had such a great time and was VERY tired by 4pm.
I then got a ride back over to Hendricks with Greg to have supper for my mom's birthday and after Trevor lifted a hand with helping with the new addition. It was a great night and by 830 I had one tired little boy!! Jon was golfing and got there at 830 to take us home.
Mom I hope you had a great birthday!!
Here are some pictures of Trevor at school and then after at there house.

Trevor loved every minute of school with grandma and the kids!

First Day of School

Today is Trevor's first day of school!! How exciting!! Since we where in the Cities on Mon and Wed and Mon was his actually first day and he missed it so we are celebrating today! He was very excited to meet new friends and to get to know his new teacher.

Right before he left he was walking out the door and he said "don't be sad mom, I will be back in a little bit".

This may be his last year of preschool if we decide to sent him to kindergarden next year!

Thanks for visiting Healy Happenings and come back soon!
