Finn's Thursday

Thursday was a big day for Finn.  He went to the library, got beat up by a girl at school and he dropped his "scary dog" out the window of a moving car.

On Thursday Gran picked Finn up from school and took him to the library.  When she arrived that afternoon she found Finn with band-aids all over.  After some inquiry Finn told her "Katie pushed me down at school."  After further inquiry Gran learned that Finn and Katie were playing on the playground.  Finn decided that he wanted to play dinosaur and started "roaring" at her.   As the story goes, Katie got tired of Finn roaring at her and took matters into her own hands and hauled off and pushed him flat on his back.  As Finn's mother I have to say - he had it coming.  Other than his pride, he was not hurt in anyway.  His pride was treated with Super Hero band-aids.

Next Gran and Finn went to the library.  He played on the computer and then checked out two books 1) "How Do Dinosaurs Go To School" and 2) "How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You."  Note:  Finn owns "How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You."  Gran reminded him of this fact, but he wanted to check it out nonetheless.

After leaving the library Finn and Gran ate supper with Mimi and Aunt Tina.  Then they went back to Gran's house to play.  On the way Finn was holding Scary Dog out the window.  Gran told him repeatedly not to.  Finn did not listen.  Soon Gran heard a blood curdling scream come of the back seat.  Finn had dropped scary dog out of the window.  Gran was able to retrieve Scary Dog, but at great personal risk of being squished by a car.

This week Michael introduced Finn to the XBox.  They played a Ninja Turtle game.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.

They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.

One of my favorites!

Another favorite.

And . . . another favorite.

They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.

It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."
