As always, here are 5 special reasons I'm loving my boys this week:

1.  During our family vacation I needed help with the TV.  Justin says "it's okay we'll all fix it together".

2.  Justin:  You want a dorito?
Lalla: No thanks Justin.
Justin: You want a dorito?
Lalla: J I just said no thank you.
Justin: I'm asking my Mom TT (duh)

3.  On the flight back home I saw Nate searching for wi-fi networks, then I saw him type in the network at the vacation rental lol.

4.  Nate:  Mom we haven't taken off yet?
Me: Nope not yet, we're waiting.
Nate: On what, more people?
Me: Nope other planes.
Nate: Oh so we can all take off together.
Me: Nope we have to wait our turn cause otherwise we'll crash.
Nate: Oh and then we'll have to get a rental plane???

5.  Nate:  Gammy I graduated from Goldfish.
Gammy:  Wow that's awesome, so you can teach me to swim?
Nate:  Umm I don't know we'll have to see about that.

Justin: Mom, can you tell Nathan to watch his tone!

As always, here are 5 special reasons I'm loving my boys this week:

1.  Nate:  Mom are you going to work today?
Me:  Yes
Nate:  (excited) Oh good you're not sick anymore!
Me: I'm still sick but I'm better.

2.  Carl was out of town for work so I had to pick the boys up and when I did Nate asks "So how was work"?

3.  Nate just walked in our room and climbed in the bed and Carl asks "Who told you to plop yourself in our bed".  Nate: I don't know, I'm just chilling out.

4.  Justin and I were walking out of Kroger looking for Carl but couldn't find him so I said J let's call him and seee where he parked.  So J yells out " Dad"and the lady next to us and I bust out laughing.

5.  J and I were building Legos and couldn't find a couple pieces.  I asked J if he had any in his pocket and he didn't but ran to his room and found some identical pieces to the ones we needed, just in a different color.

I'm a little behind because you know that thing called life.  I've been logging the boys cute sayings, just haven't had the chance to sit down and blog.  But as always, here are 5 special reasons I'm loving my boys this week:

1.  My co-worker and friend came to Nate's baseball game and had the cutest conversation
Jennie:  Who is the president?
Nate: The government.
Jennie:  (laughing) No Nate, who's the president?
Nate:  Donald Trump
Jennie:  Who was the president before Donald Trump?
Nate: Martin Luther King Jr.

2. Me:  Nate what's wrong?
Nate:  I don't like those crooks.
Me: Crooks, what crooks?
Nate:  (pointing) In my nose, I don't like when they're in my nose.
Me: Oh you mean boogers.
Nate:  Yeah I don't like boogers they're always sneaking in my nose.

3.  The boys got home after I got my hair braided and when J saw me he yelled out Mom you're back, your hair is cute, I LIKE it!!!

4.  Justin was playing with our neighbor at recess and his classmates started teasing him saying that she was his girlfriend.  To which Justin responds "that's not my girlfriend, that's my sister."

5. Carl's crown came off so he walked in Nate's room to which Nate replied "Dad your tooth came out congratulations the tooth fairy will come tonight"!

1st Day of School

Keeping with tradition, I took the boys back to school pics (the 1st 4) in front of their schools the night before school started.  Last year the boys were gifted 2nd and 3rd grade books from their mainstream teachers so they read those at bedtime.  Of course I took pictures the morning of as well.  They both had a great 1st day of school!

Family Vacation || Destin, FL

We had an awesome time in Florida and I'm so glad we were able to vacation with my sisters and family.  At times (mainly when the Brouzins were running wild) I wondered what were we thinking, renting a house for 11 people.  But I loved watching the Brouzins bond all week.  It's all about the memories and I love watching them together.

Family Vacation || Kalahari

I was a little hesitant to go back to Kalahari.  Last time we were there J had a seizure and ended up being hospitalized.  And of course that had nothing to do with Kalahari but it was a bad memory that I unfortunately associate with them.  But this trip was uneventful and a much needed get away. The boys have been in swimming class for years now, and Nathan has progressed tremendously and can swim laps.  Even still, he still wanted a life vest.  J, while not a strong swimmer, is much more comfortable in the water and was quite adventurous.  We all had a great time.

As always, here are 5 special reasons I'm loving my boys this week:

1.  Come on let's do my shot, come on Mom.

2.  Me: J go get the Peanut butter
J:  Aye aye captain mom!

3. I picked Nate up early from school for a Dr's appointment.  Well we were home around his normal drop off time and he yells "Mom that's my bus".  Me looking confused, thus the following conversation ensues:
Me:  Why would your bus come by the house when he's not dropping you off?
Nate:  Mom its called time and mileage so he has to drive by this week.
Me:  Nate what's time and mileage?
Nate: That's the bus system.

Sure enough the bus drives by.  I swear this boy is too smart for his own good!

4.  Nate:  Mom I can't wait for you to look pretty once you get ready for work.

5.  Nate was watching the news and yells out hey that guy has the same last name as us.  Carl looking confused because the traffic reporter whose name is Dejulio was on the screen.  So Carl asks what he's talking about and Nate points to the ticker which was showing Dow Jones.
