I heart faces Week 34~Beach Fun~


This week's theme is Beach Fun. Considering we spend most of the summer there I have oodles of pictures to chose from. This week was really hard to pick just one entry. I decided on my favorite of our tween, Jared. It's hard to get more then a grunt some days but when I asked if he was having fun on vacation, this was what I got. Wow, a pure eye twinkling smile, not a snarky "stop with the paparazzi" grimace. These are the days I live for.

Head on over to Iheartfaces to see more of this week's Beach Fun photos.

First day of School 2010

I'm sitting here trying to keep myself busy. I can't wait for Jared to get home from his first day of middle school. I already posted pictures of this morning to Face Book but left his off. I figure the mailbox picture might get him beat up or hung from a locker when displayed in a public forum. Technology has come so far from my collection of mailbox pictures. I don't think anyone ever even saw them but my parents. Now it's what you do. Post "first day" pictures in the morning, go out for lunch with friends or go to work, then post or blog about the kids day-information you harvested from them while enjoying a sweet treat either baked or store bought. Wow, I am a suburban mom for sure!
So while I watch the clock tick bringing me closer to seeing what classes Jared got, if he got lost or if he had a friend to sit with during his lunch period-I will blog... :) Let me just add a side note that I about passed out at the bus stop today. 97 degrees is H.O.T for the kids to be back in school. Going back this early breaks my heart. I will reevaluate in September when we have our first week break and we head up to the lake for some late summer fun. MAYBE then I will like it, but not today :(

Kevin looks r.o.u.g.h. I felt as tired as he looks. Ryan on the other hand was bright eyed and bushy tailed ;)

It was so hot out my camera fogged up...at 6 in the morning. eeesh.
much cooler when Jared's bus came by an hour plus later. HOMER, get it? Like the shirt? That kid has a funny sense of humor ;) Guess his teacher will remember HIS name today-ha!
