From Ashton's Mouth

Yay! It's Wednesday again. I am loving letting all of you hear what my silly kids say. Visit http://familyamericanstyle.blogspot.com/2009/07/what-keeps-us-ticking.html to hear from other funny kiddos!
Last weekend we took a little stay-cation. On Saturday we went downtown and got to ride the train. The boys thought this was the best part!




Even Miss Daisy enjoyed the train.




We went to the Phoenix Museum of Science and had a blast checking out all the displays and we watched a really cool 3D Shark Movie!



They even had a lego display and the kids got to dress up as princes, knights and princess and play around in the lego castle.



Saturday night on our way to dinner, Ashton wasn't feeling well. He said "Mom, I think I'm home sick."



We got to eat at some fun restaurants and we brought home a bunch of plastic kids cups!

When we were getting ready to head home, Donn told the kids "Say goodbye to the hotel room."

Ashton said
"Goodbye room, we will miss you!"
He was sad to leave! When we got home he said
"Mom, I think I'm hotel-sick!"

Today was the first day of school. The house is very quiet today which is helpful during nap time, but I had just gotten used to having them all at home and now I have to get used to them being gone!

Lily has been a little worried about school because none of her close friends are in her class. I've been a little worried too! This morning she said "I am going to make so many new friends because I don't know anyone in my class!" She certainly has a good attitude! So proud of her!

I have been agonizing over whether or not to put the boys in different classes this year. They have been together from the moment they were born, and I wondered if they might like a break. They have never been too dependent on each other. I decided to try different classes this year and we will see how it goes. This morning, after the bell rang, I hung out for a little bit to peek in to their classes and see how they were doing. Bailey was busy showing his teacher his tooth that fell out yesterday and Ashton was sitting at his desk, quietly chatting with new friends. Neither of them seemed to be having any problems being separated! Proud of these guys too!

Well, they'll be able to check in with each other at recess and at lunch so they'll have the security of knowing that. And, your daughter will be just fine and she really will make new friends. She's lovely!

Your trip to Phoenix looks like lots of fun! I heart children's museums!

That is cute!! Home sick then hotel sick. Kids are just so funny. It looks like you all had a great trip. My boys would just love to ride a train. I can't believe your kids are already starting school. Ian dosn't start until the 17th of Aug.

I love your stories about what they say. So cute!! I can't imagine how it will be to send Riv to school, probably bittersweet!

What cute photos of the first day of school.

I couldn't bear to send my kids off to school so I homeschool. We still take first day photos as well.
