First Grade Field Trip

Garrett and Patrick went on a first grade field trip on September 12th. Patrick loaded the pictures FINALLY so that I could share them with you. The trip consisted of a trip to IHOP for breakfast, a visit to the helicopter hanger for the police station, a visit to the fire station, a visit to the post office, and a trip down the river on the Bama Belle! Long day for a first grader, he was worn out that day and went to sleep very early. Unusual for Garrett! During the visit to the airport to see the helicopter their was an emergency call and they were able to see it take off! Garrett was so excited as you can see in the pictures!!!

I Can't Believe...

I can't believe how fast my little boy is growing up. Every morning this week he has run into Garrett's room saying, "GET UP, GARRETT!" trying to be a helper to his mommy and daddy. Brendan is beginning to wear big boy "undawears," as he would say. Yesterday, he used the potty like his brother - STANDING - and was so proud of himself! Hugs and high fives from him are so sweet! Singing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" is one of his favorite things to do, but out of the clear blue this week he started singing, "God our Father..." This time it actually didn't come out to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star!" Also he loves to watch the Alabama football games with me and he now says on his own - "Roll Tide" and "Go Bama"! Of course he is a little sponge and is learning so rapidly. He even tries to say Garrett's sight words as we are doing 1st grade homework!

Texas Weekend

Finally, I have the pictures from Jill's "Sip and See" weekend!!! Enjoy the pictures!

I had a great time visiting Jill this past weekend in Texas. Mom, Brendan, and I went to her shower that the girls from her church threw for her. It was called a "Sip-N-See"! Griffin is a cutie! He cooed and laughed at his Aunt Jeanna. Brendan absolutely loved him. Several other babies were there and the main quote from Brendan was "I LIKE THE BABIES!" All of the babies were really sweet. I really enjoyed meeting Jill's friends! Jill, mom, and I went shopping and we also got to watch the BAMA game together!!! Brendan enjoyed playing with Grayson too and he loves Dave!

When I get the pictures from mom I will edit this post so everyone can enjoy the pictures.
