Spirit Week

This week is "Spirit Week" at HCA and even the preschoolers are getting to participate.  Monday was "crazy hair and pajamas" day.  Finn wore his SuperMan jammies . . . (Gran sent these home with us Sunday night)

 . . . and sported George Belhan hair (driver of the Mohawk Warrior).  Finn's outfit came complete with a cape.  I added the snow boots.

On the way to school Finn asked me every few minutes - "mom, is my hair still up?"  He was so scared that his hair would fall before he got to school.  Well, his worries were completely in vain - his hair was just as high and stiff when I picked him up from school that afternoon.

Tuesday was "Favorite Team" day.  Finn wore his Titan's jersey from two years ago. 

On the way to school Finn wanted to play "bad guys."  Bad guys is really taxing to play so I asked Finn if we could just sit quietly for a few minutes.  Finn said, "sure mom - what do you want to talk about?"

Later in the evening we went to a parent/teacher meeting at HCA.  While there another mom asked me if I was Finn's mom.  She told me that her daughter came home today and told her how cute Finn looked in his Titan's jersey.

On Sunday we all went to the park for family pictures - I will post those when they are available.  Afterwards they went to Gran's house to play.  They came home in these matching jammies.  Yes, this is where I got the idea for jammies day.

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…


Today Finn and Sam put on their new Upward  uniforms. Sam took one look at Finn and said “Finn, do you want to be twin basketball brothers?”  Even though Sam said it with as much sincerity and excitement me had in his little body, Finn respectfully declined.
Instead they danced like ladies and gentlemen danced in days of yore. They looked hilariously awkward.
