First Day of the First Grade

I can not believe that we officially have a FIRST grader! Micah LOVES school. Micah Needs school. Thankfully MIcah slept a whole lot later this summer. LAst summer he was up and playing/ making noise at about 4:30 most every morning. This summer, he was better to stay in his room and play quietly. I'm trying my best to train the boy that there is no reason to EVER be awake before 6:45 or 7:00 would even be nicer. I NEED my sleep, and apparently Micah does NOT. Either way, now school has begun he's still getting up around 6 and is Slap worn out He is still on his radio calling kick. Just this week he made a call and got to be a "junior joker." I was asleep and missed it :( But for goodness sakes, I can not wake up as early as him. He's trying SO hard to win Backstage passes to Celebrate Freedom. He has BIG plans to go and spend the day watching concerts. He SO hopes to win tickets and calls at least 20 times every.single.morning at 6:20 and 7:20. When he finally got through on Monday the tickets were gone for that time period, but he got to speak with Kevin. What he asked was "How long have you been married?" So strange what that boy comes up with, but whatever. Either way he is in the First grade now. He has several kids that were in his class last year in his class again this year. His teacher is young and seems to be nice. She is currently working on getting her gifted certification which is why Micah and one other girl got her. They are the two 1st graders who go to SCOPE. So far MIcah seems to be (from what he's telling me) doing very well. He has earned several 'starbucks' and has yet to have to move his name down. I'm hoping he's trying hard! He still hasn't made very many new friends that he will talk about. I asked him who he plays with at the playground and he told me nobody. So I asked he ever played with Ethan or Brain some boys from his class last year, who are in another class this year. He told me "Not really." So I asked "What in the world do you do when y'all go outside then?" He said "I mostly just talk to Mrs. Greene if she's out there." LOL What a hoot!

The last day of summer

Kay invited Micah to come ride horses on the last day of summer break. We headed to the farm and were so excited to see Mama, and the Rosbury fam already there. Aiden has been training with Kay and helping with the horses this summer.

After months and months of planning. After night after night of bad dreams. The party came and went fine. The day of the party was NON Stop. I had made several trips to the Rents' house dropping off supplies, but on the day of the party, I still had to get balloons, the cake, ice cream.... Those kinds of things. The morning began with a moonwalk for a sweet friend. I couldn't turn it down because she helped get us a BIG job last year. So bright and early the boys and I headed over to set it up (Stacy had to work). From there, I ran to get a quick haircut. I had been NEEDING one for months, but knowing that I would be outside in the 90 degree temps for most of the day, I decided to bite the bullet. I went to Great Clips told the girl I needed a quick cut. I told her my goal is to be able to put my hair in a ponytail..... Instead of the 6 inches that I was planning on, she cut about 8! Needless to say it was a bit of a change. While I was getting my haircut Mama and Daphne both began calling me to see where I was. Daphne had volunteered to help me that morning. I headed to the Rents' as quickly as I could. I had Daphne help me make cupcake ice cream cones, she also helped me fill candy containers. We worked and prepared until after lunch. I got a call from the girl who had the moonwalk saying that she was finished. Stacy was still working, so I loaded up the boys, ran to retrieve the moonwalk, get the cake, balloons, and ice cream, and headed back to the Rents' We got there 1 1/2 before the party was supposed to begin, and I had NOTHING set up outside. I was hoping that Stacy would be able to help me.... Daddy had an event at Stone Mt, and Mama was exhausted. I rushed around like a chicken with my head cut off. The signs wouldn't stick in the ground, some began to come apart. I was just about to breakdown. All of my nightmares were going to come true. My party was going to be a failure..... Then Stacy showed up. 20 minutes before the guests arrived, and he saved the day. I told him exactly where to put the decor and I jumped in the shower. By the time I was out and dressed, Stacy had completed the job and people were already there. The party went smoothly. Everyone with the exception of one little girl came. I had a hard time choosing pics because my personal photographer Ms. Martha did and AWESOME job, here are just some of my favorites :)

We played the life size version of Candyland.

Terren won the game and was the first to make it to the candy table!

Stacy was SO excited that Peaches came, and so was his mom.
Lots of our favorite people came! LOVE Mrs. Greene!

This boy is SEVEN!!!
Sweet Riley kisses
Man, I missed this face this summer!

We had a Candy walk. It's like a cakewalk, but you win candy instead..... Micah's idea ;)

$, and legos seemed to be the theme :)
And the cake turned out delicious, and perfect for the party!

The Breakup....

On the way home this afternoon, Patton got mad at Micah and told him "You are not my brother anymore!" Micah didn't like that at all and explained to him that no matter what, they will always be brothers. "You can't just break up with me like that," Micah said.

Summer is ending

I feel like we have had a busy, fun, successful, at times happy, at times sad, stressful, but over all GREAT summer. We discovered a new love of Frances Meadows aquatic center. 

We spent several days at the pool and were especially happy when we got to swim with friends. 

Micah found a LOT of frogs, lizards, turtles, caterpillars, snakes, and other creatures this summer. 

I can not believe summer is almost over!
