The picture is of course my little Cameron man on his very first day of first grade. And he really isn't that little anymore. My little boy has grown up so fast. He has gone from my sweet arms to the first grade and I still wonder where all the time has gone. He is at school all day now and I miss having him at home. Who would have thought that I could miss having a kid at home, but I do. It is a lot different when it is just Madeline and I. That will change in week as well. She too will be starting her very first year of preschool.

My kids are growing up before my eyes and I would like time to stop for just a year or two so my kids don't pass me by. So here's to firsts and kids growing up when all we want is for them to stay innocent and little.

Busy Busy Busy

I had figured that with school finally starting on Monday I had better get all of the pictures posted prior to Cameron's first day of school photo.

It has been a busy last two weeks. With the end of the Jr. Giants season, our team got the opportunity to play a game on the field at AT&T park. Along with that trip, my sister and I took the kids to Sacramento for a last trip before the start of the school year. We headed out to Fairytale Town and the Zoo.

We have had a lot of fun during that last 2 weeks, but I am so ready to have Cameron back in school and for a full day of school. No more half day school. I can get so much more accomplished with just one child at home instead of 3 (hahahaha).

A Lost Tooth

Cameron has finally lost his first tooth. It has been a long time coming. We (mainly the dentist) were getting worried when his back molars were coming in and there was no sign of him losing his front teeth. I was afraid that some teeth pulling were going to have to happen at his next dentist appointment in October, but the hands that be made it possible for Cameron to lose his tooth while swimming in a swimming pool at a BBQ on Saturday Night. He just opened his mouth and out it popped down into the depths of the deep end of the swimming pool. Thank goodness for little girls with goggles who swam down and found the little culprit. It allowed Cameron his first visit from the tooth fairy with a crisp dollar bill under his pillow, which he informed me of at 7:30 in the morning. Now on to the next loose tooth.
