Last Wednesday was John's 30th birthday! Poor guy, everyone was making fun of him so much. :) I was the worst at making fun of him, he was getting so sick of me, hehe. I tried to make his birthday as special as I could though. I surprised him with a cake in the morning at work and bought and made him lots of gifts! Here is the card and little present that I made for him. :)
Melissa gave me the idea for the "30 Sucks" tootsie pop basket, thanks Mel!
John's dad ended up giving him half of the day off of work so he decided that we should take Alex to the Oklahoma Science Museum. Alex loved it!
I apologize for the horrible photos. My camera hasn't been working properly lately and I can only get it to work sometimes. I had to use my cell phone to take pics of John's birthday. Anyways, I have a warranty on my camera but to get it fixed I have to send it in to Nikon and I keep putting it off because I constantly have new layouts and scrap projects that I NEED photos of. I have a feeling it's going to take me awhile to get it back once I send it off to them.
Thursday was Alex's FIRST day of Kindergarten! He was so excited. I was nervous. It's a new school for him and Kindergarten here is a full day of school, rather than a half day like it was for him last year. Alex is a hyper kid, and he can never seem to keep his mouth shut, hee! He had problems with it last year in Pre-K, he got in trouble a LOT for talking, although he got better about it after a few months. I knew that paying attention for a full 7 hours a day was going to be a huge challenge for him this year. And. I was right. He's gotten in trouble a bunch for talking already, hopefully things will get easier for him soon.
Photos of him on his first day. I love the last one, cracks me up!
The first few days of school were pretty hard for Alex. I think he thought that it was going to be just like Pre-K, that he was going to walk into class and know everyone but of course it's a new class at a new school with a new teacher! Thankfully a girl from his class last year is in his class but it didn't seem to help much during the first few days. He was sad after school, telling me about how no one seemed to want to play with him at recess and things like that. I was SO sad for him, and shocked as well! He's the most outgoing person I know, and ask anyone, I am NOT kidding, lol. Not getting someone to play with him is so unheard of, he's never had a problem joining in. I spent the next few days making things as fun as possible for him, trying to keep his mind off of school so he wouldn't cry about it.
This week has been much better though. He's come home happy the last couple of days babbling away telling me about his new friends and how much fun he had at recess. I'm relieved. :) Hopefully he won't have this problem again since he'll be going to this school for the next 4 years. :)
Alex and I had an exhausting weekend. We went to two birthday parties yesterday! Chelsea's daughter's was a pool party and our neighbors was a big waterslide party. Alex's muscles were sore for the first time ever last night and this morning. It freaked him out, he thought he was dying, poor guy!
