Saturday is a Special Day

Here is my handsome hubby and his "guys". They are playing golf today in honor of finishing the first term of Physical Therapy school! And actually it is quite the accomplishment. There are 5 guys (including Erik) in his class that "have the same set of morals" and so naturally they have become pretty close(the 5th guy has 6 kids so no golfing for him). Did I mention that all these guys are married? Yep, so all the wives have gotten pretty close as well. It is fun!
Anyways, this is their "first tri-annual" golfing trip to celebrate NO MORE FINALS!
(for a couple of months at least)
Good Job Babe! You're our ROCK STAR!!
P.S.-That is our home in the background and we LOVE it!

I can't comment too much on this post.
(The tears are already swelling up along my bottom eyelid!)
The picture is pretty self-explanatory.

Such a BIG boy!

Arizona Wolf Spider I prefer to call it the...
"Arizona make you poop your pants when you see it crawling across your floor spider"
What do you think? A much more appropriate name.
This bugger was about 4 inches long and had a grown woman (me) screaming like a maniac!
But by the time Erik got done with him he was swimming in a puddle of 4 inches of Raid!
Sayonara succka!
(oh did I mention that these crawl out of our drains after a monsoon?)
(or that we found one of these spiders hiding in Erik's pants?)
And yes, we do have pest control but apparently they can only do so much!
Please pray for us!!!
Picture courtesy of ME!!! Yep, this is the real deal. After he died of course!

Here's to the next 13 years!

I am sitting here at my computer trying to think of something clever to say about Treven's first day of Kindergarten but, I can't. All I can think of is how bitter sweet this moment really is! Treven started kindergarten this morning at 7:45 am and will be returning home at 2:30 pm. My heart is lonely and I miss him! I told myself that I wasn't going to cry, in fact I think that I was actually throwing a little party inside at the thought of only having one kid at home. Then it happened! We walk into his classroom, all is well. We find Treven's seat, all is well. His teacher asks all the parents to say goodbye and be on their way, all is well. I look at Treven to say goodbye one last time, all is NOT well! His big blues were staring right at me as if to say "Are you sure I'm safe here?" All of a sudden my heart overflows into my tear glands and water starts to drip from the corner of my eyes. I quickly give one last kiss and hug (much tighter than the ones before) and try to find the door through foggy eyes. I reach the outside and I let lose! I mean, I cried and I cried hard and I didn't care who saw or heard me (probably because I don't know anyone)! I hurried to my car and called my mom. We cried together.
What is it that makes us sad to have our children grow up?
Well Treven, here's to the next 13 years of school with many more to follow! You are a genius in our books! You will be missed at home by your mom (who feels like she lost a best friend) and by your true best friend, Maycie. We are excited for what you have in store and all the friends you will make! Take these years and make the MOST of them! Trust me, they go fast!
We love you!
