St. Patrick's Day

Another Real-Life Update:

For St. Patrick's Day yesterday (and because we had gotten our packing done quicker on Saturday than I thought we would), we decided to go out to lunch after getting D a pre-trip haircut. First up, though. . .our tradition of St. Patrick's Day pics outside!

D is sporting his green(before the haircut!)!




Me & my little man. . .so lucky to have him!



My guys are definitely my lucky charms!



After getting a haircut and picking up some last minute things, we headed to lunch at Chuys. Because nothing says "Happy Irish Holiday" like eating at a Mexican restaurant. . .





It was a fun, fun day! I can't believe we're already to the week of the trip!!! Today, D registers for kindergarten. . .can't believe that either! Have a marvelous Monday, everyone!

It is SO good! You will love it! I can't believe it either--I think it is supposed to rain on Sunday, but that'll still be ok!

Yes, he thinks he is Mr. Cool in his Daddy's shades! Time does go way too fast. . .I can't believe Megan is about to turn 13 and D is about to go to kindergarten! Actually, I just realized, leaving early made my ticker wrong, so we are at 2 days. In fact in about 48 hours, we should be about 1/3 of the way there!

Real Life Update #13: Kindergarten Registration!

I cannot believe today was the day that D registered for kindergarten! I have been so nervous about this for weeks! I don't know why!

To make it a "big" day, Brian and I both took off today. We took a few pictures before we left to go.

My future kindergartener:



With Me:



With Daddy:



D is going to kindergarten in the town where I work (and where I went to school, too). It is also the town where my mom and dad live. This is a good thing because someone can get to him in 2 minutes if need be. Also, I know EVERYONE. Which is a good thing, and sometimes not, but as I tell Brian, some aspects of growing up in a small town can't be beat!

Here's D getting ready to go in:





We got there at 8:05. It was supposed to start at 8:30. There were already about 25 families in front of us. It went fairly quickly, though, and after all of the assessments and screenings, we were out by about 9:50. We went to see Nonna & Papaw, and then for a reward lunch at Red Lobster and a visit to Toys R Us!

D is very excited to start kindergarten in the fall! And I am one relieved Momma!

such cute pics of the official kindergartener!
how cool D will be going to your school and being so close by will give you great peace of mind love that you made it a celebration!

at least you have a few more years until D hits teenagerhood!
oh that's right, now you are even closer...2 more sleeps

One Last "Planning" Update!

Our last night on the ship. Boo!! Since I still don’t know our dinner rotation, we’ll eat in one of the MDR’s (after some character pics and some fun family pics, hopefully!)


*Photo from AllEars

Then, we will go see the “Believe” show! This one (or the one similar to it) made me cry on our 2005 cruise!


*photo from AllEars

I also hope to take D back to see some characters at the “Til We Meet Again” show.

After that (and all too soon), it’ll be time to pack up our stuff and put it outside the room to be ready to leave the next morning.

The next morning, we will be up bright and early for breakfast in an MDR, and then it’ll be back on the road to TN!!

I am so so so excited about this cruise, but I am a little weirded out because I can’t plan as much! Oh well, I will just relax and enjoy!! :dance:

Hope you have a great trip!! And throw us a bone or two for us stuck in the Disney-less world during your trip if you can by posting a couple of pictures. Can't wait to hear all about it when you get back!
