One of the perks of being is Kindergarten is that you get a Yearbook.  Finn was very excited to show me every single page! Sam, was also excited  - he looked over Finn's shoulder and yelled with glee every time he saw himself, one of his friends, or someone he recognized.  When pre-ordering the Yearbook, I didn't realize that the preschool was included - so I didn't order Sam one.  Well, this little slip up was not lost on Sam and he asked me a thousand times why he didn't have a Yearbook.

A few pictures of Sam eating corning.  When "Head Begley" is out of town, I cook food from my childhood.

While the boys hate it when Michael goes out of town, they love that they get to sleep in our bed.  I thought the sleeping arrangement would get easier given that we have a big bed now.  Nope - they both sleep right next to me the whole night.


I love this picture.

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.

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.
