    6. I think if they would admit it they would all be (mostly) ready to go back but the oldest one is the only one that readily says the words in plain English. :)

      I posted a picture from tonight of the whole crew :)

    7. I remember always being excited and ready to go back. And Taylor was like that, too!

  11. I think I am ready for September. I'll be standing at the end of the driveway with one small girl again. I am not, however, looking forward to getting up early on dark winter mornings.

    Hey, which two of those boys are identical?

    1. This morning seemed very early to me. ha.

      Spencer and Alex are identical. Left and Center. But Spencer's so much skinnier now!

  12. The boys are getting so mature looking and are so darn sweet!!! I loved all your captions!!! Funny stuff.

  13. I just got back from Michigan but am too wound up to sleep...I needed a good laugh before bed and you do not disappoint! Spencer looks wonderful...maybe I should cut cheese out of my diet too. Hoping for a wonderful year for the guys and a much deserved rest for you too!

    1. I had a good laugh taking the pictures, and then editing them later. lol!

      Spencer lost over 40 pounds! The other two don't eat cheese...so there isn't a simple solution there. You live in Wisconsin...you can't cut out cheese...I'm sure it's against the law there! lol....

  25. As a secial education teacher who just completed my 2nd day of my 33rd year of teaching, THIS WAS THE FUNNIEST BLOG POST EVER! Really EVER! I would love to crawl behind you eyes sometime and observe your kids the way you observe them.

    1. Aw, Hi Chansen! Wow...33 years! You have a special gift, that is for sure, in loving special education! And you, then, would understand my mantra that you must have a sense of humor as a survival technique. :) Glad to make you laugh and thanks for commenting. :)

  26. I think that is so cool how you captured such a great moment and it really does look like they were thinking those things. You should add mind reading to your resume which is a very important skill that almost all mothers learn out of necessity. It is funny that if you watch most Mother's they do seem to have this ability in varying levels depending upon the age of the child. I also think this is a skill women also need for their husbands too. Maybe it is not so much mind reading as we are just able to.....okay it is a form of mind reading. I cannot think of another way to describe how we know what they need before they even say a word. Or it could be we have body reading language skills which is still a form of mind reading. Women are so lucky to be blessed with such intelligence. LOL

    God bless.

    1. haha..oh, I totally agree...it's a mother's gift. Father's do not have it. ...or at least the one in this house doesn't. He'll say, "What does he want?" and I'll say what it is...and he'll say, "I never would have guessed that!" lol.... Just another reason God made us....so our kids would survive! ha.
