Aiden's Day

We have been blessed to have a truly wonderful person to take care of Aiden. He has been going to Ms. Amanda since about November of last year. We have decided to keep him there for another year, and when the baby comes it will also go to Amanda.

These are some pictures Amanda sent me the other day of Aiden playing, and of him and Ms. Amanda.

On a side note:
I have realized that I really like to blog. I could be a celebrity blogger. I would get to go to award shows and blog about what people said, and what they wore. I could do it. If teaching doesn't work out, I am moving the family to Beverly... Hills that is. swimmin pools, movie stars.

Thankful for time

When football season comes around, it is rare that we get to spend time together during the week or on the weekend as a family, because Mark is usually working. This makes the nights hard on Aiden, and me and I have a newfound respect for single mothers, and families that have members that work odd shifts. So I am so thankful when we do get some time together and not just in passing or 10 minutes in the morning.

Mark did not have to work this Saturday night so we decided to go have a picnic. We went to Cherokee lake in Thomasville with some Papa Johns Pizza! Aiden thought this was great fun! He enjoyed running straight for the water, quacking with the ducks, and of course PIZZA!

Today Aiden spent some time working on a some art. He calls it Ode to a Cheerio.

When I had Aiden I was very fortunate to have several of my close girlfriends pregnant at the same time. We all had babies within the same month. The closest baby that was born was my sweet neice Abigail. She was born 12 hours after Aiden in Louisville. Samantha ( her mommy) and I seem to have a pattern of doing things in the same fashion or in the same timeline. For instance:
- Sam and I married brothers
- We both have December birthdays ( 5 days apart)
-We graduated from the same college at the same time, with the same degree. I think her GPA was a few points higher though.
- We both teach elementary school.
- We both had babies within a few hours of eachother and now...
- We are both preganant again!

That is right folks Samantha is roughly a week behind me in her pregnancy! How do we do this? Honestly , I love it! I love to be able to share the same things and go through it together. I am so blessed to have such a great sister! Congratulations Sammy and Steve.

So many things to do, and so little time...

I was doing so well this summer keeping up with the blogging thing and then August hit! I have started back at school, Aiden has gone back to Ms. Amanda's, Mark started a new job, and I found out I was pregnant again! So I am WIPED out by the end of the day. If I have not gotten around to telling you yet about the 4th Tallahassee Kagy, I really do apologize, but I have been somewhat preoccupied.

I have been sick, sick, sick, and very tired getting 18 kindergarteners into somewhat of a routine. It was very hard to go back because of this and missing sweet Aiden. For the first 2 weeks he cried, and screamed, and I would say I love you, give kisses and leave. Of course when I got to the car the water works began with me. Now it is much better. He walks into the house, waves, and smiles when I leave. Ms. AManda has also been working with AIden on calling her AMAN-DA. When we pull into her neighborhood I usually say "we're almost at Ms. Amanda's house." Then he starts to say "DUh, Duh, Duh", I guess he means Aman-DUH!

Mark has started his new job and seems to really enjoy it. He comes home at normal hours and gets to leave his work at the office. But with this comes the start of football season and he is out Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights usually. I become what feels like a single mom on those nights and look forward to bedtime much earlier.

By the way this post took me three days to fully complete. SAVOR IT...
