5 and 3 Year Well-checks.

On Friday we had our three year and five year well-checks.  They went great.  The boys were a ball of nerves and energy.  I told both of them that they would be getting shots a couple days before the appointment.  Sam told me that he didn't want to go to the doctor because the doctor hurt.

As for measurements, Finn is the 91% for height and and 86% for weight.  He weighs 49 pounds and is 46 inches tall.  Finn's hearing and eyes were also tested - both excellent. 

Sam is in the 94% for weight and the 76% for height.  He is weighs 38 pounds and is 38 inches tall. 

While waiting for Dr. Steve, we took a few pictures.  Finn is becoming an old pro at "picture taking." When Michael got the camera out Finn immediately put his arms around both me and Sam.

After school we took the boys to Opry Mills to the Lego store to exchange Sam's Legos.  It was awesome!

They even had a place for the boys to build.

On Saturday I met Emily at the Farmer's Market in Davidson County to do a practice run for the Hot Chocolate 15K.  It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, but I was still pretty beat.

That evening Sam and I went to drop some documents off at a client's house and then we went to exchange my watch for something a bit less flashy.  Finn went with Michael and Tommy and Deniece to Michael's office to hang pictures. 

On Sunday before bed we tried to explain "Martin Luther King Day" to Finn.  It didn't go all that well.  It started with Michael telling Finn that it happened a long time ago when Gran and Pa were younger and ended with Finn asking if Pa was in the "Israelite Army."  Some how or another he associated the phrase "a long time ago" with "biblical time" and  "fighting for rights" (or something along those lines) with "army" and put two and two together. Bless him. 


  1. I am laughing outloud!!!!! You can tell they go to a Christian school. Israelite Army!! How funny!

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."
