First Day of School. . . for Camden!

Today was the first day of Mother's Morning Out for Camden. Of course he cried when i left him, but it didn't last long! I peeked in his room twice and once he had a mouth stuffed with a paci and the 2nd time he was happy as a lark just flitting around being an 19 month old! Here are a few of the mandatory "first day of school" pictures. . . I think he might have known it was a big deal . . . check out the grin on his face!
I will add a sidenote: He was HAULING down the hallway one time, ahead of the rest of his class, and i heard one of my preschool teachers holler to Ms. Dana (his teacher) - "Hey, you better grab him, he knows exactly where he's going!" He was headed straight to my office to find me!
Khaki was kind enough to pick him up and when i finally arrived to pick him up from her house, he was thrilled to see me. Nothing quite like that baby face running to you at the end of a day! True love!

. . . Really??? Again!

Check this out . . .GATOR GAB . . .and our government is PAYING this woman!
Gator fans everywhere should be ashamed!

. . . .Really???

I have so much to blog about, but no time to blog. My one comment for today is this - as ESPN in on the television that is in front of me. Jeff was watching the little league world series, left the room and left the tv on when it was over. . . Now who is on??? Michael Vick!
What a crock of crap! I called it how many years ago??? Two?? Barely? I said, the day he was found guilty and sentenced, that he WOULD play ball again. I was disgusted at the THOUGHT then, but today, i am more disgusted. He is being interviewed right now. Not sure why it even caught my attention, but i happened to look up and saw his name across the bottom of the screen. I will say, i like sports, i love college football, i love major league baseball, but really, this is a crock of crap!!! That the NFL would allow this man to be paid to play this sport after what he did . . . a crock! DISGUSTING!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our Molly girl!! I can't believe that she is 6 today!! This picture was taken 3 years ago when she was enjoying birthday cake and ice cream for khaki's birthday!! Boy how time flies! But what a treat it is to have a daughter, and especially one as sweet at Molly. In her bookbag on Friday, there was a note from her teacher . . . "Molly is a model student!" What a nice compliment to hear!
Molly - you are a true gift from God. A little bit of sprinkles on the cake that we've been given in life! You are beautiful, talented, and most of all, filled with kindness and love for others! You are a true delight and we love you very, very much! I hope today is a very special day for you and that each year gets better and better the older you get!

UGH, Meetings!

Have you ever been to one of those meetings that it is so off base, you just can't help but to laugh through the whole thing. Tonight was the night. I won't go into too much detail as i don't want to get called-out for complaining, but i HATE, and yes, that is a strong word, HATE meetings that stray so far off the course they were supposed to be on, that it becomes totally irrelevant to the others in attendance.
Am i rambling enough for you? I attended a TWO HOUR meeting tonight, that when it was all said and done, should have been a maximum of 30 minutes! UGH!
I had to have a beer when it was all over because i was just so frustrated of having spent TWO HOURS accomplishing nothing!! TWO HOURS!! Does no one know how important two hours is this time of the year?
I attended with Amy, Andrea, and Tamara, and i'm so glad i did, because they were great company to be in. Thanks for a fun night, girls! NOT! I enjoyed my time with y'all, but next time, let's just go have dinner!!

Are You a "Pray-er?

I have so many wonderful things happening in my own life, but yet i am silenced and hushed by things going on around me!

I have found out that 3 people that are dear to my heart and so special to me, have all been diagnosed with cancer . . . all within two weeks of each other! My heart is filled with pain for them and what they are going through.

Two of the three are fellow "moms" that i know and admire, both diagnosed with breast cancer, both in their 30's. They are both showing strength and fierce bravery to fight the fight! But to know that they are only in their 30's. It truly makes you realize that this can happen to any of us!

The third is a dear friend of our family! He might as well be family as we spent many times together around the holidays! He has cancer of the stomach.

So i ask you to pray. . . For each of these people. Pray for them, for their families, for their doctors and for healing. I know that we can offer meals to those nearby, and to help with their kids, and to clean houses, and whatever else needs to be "done", but really prayer is the force that will carry these 3 through these next few months. And go get a mammogram!! Or at least let your doctor check your boobies for you!

Thanks for praying with me!

First Day of School '09!!

Today was the Bigs' first day of school . . . Molly is in 1st grade, Griffin is in 3rd! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?? When did they get so big?? Check out these pictures and you'll see what i mean. . .

Molly up close, looking SO pretty in her first-day-of-school outfit. (It has practically killed her not to wear this outfit until now. . . we've had it since early July):
Griffin . . . note the collared shirt, because he probably won't wear it again this year, unless it's a Sunday church day! Also, please note the new tennis shoes. . . he INSISTED on getting Under Armour tennis shoes (i know, that's what's COOL, but have you seen the price??) Boy is quite the business man. . . talked Dad and i into giving him the money we would have spent on your "average" pair of tennis shoes and he paid for the rest himself! That's how bad he wanted them! Aren't they dapper??
Molly again . . . probably one of the prettiest pictures i have of her -

Griffin, up close . . .again, a pretty good picture. . . it's a REAL smile -
Feeling the sibling love??
And then there's sweet Camden that seemingly, looks excited that the other two are finally going back to school . . . (notice the mismatched pj's . . .half Christmas pj's, half old preschool t-shirt . . .it really stinks to be a 3rd child)!!!

But really? Apparently no one wanted to have their picture taken with Mom. . . look at the painful looks on their faces!! Maybe we'll skip this shot next year!
They should be home in about an hour and a half! I'm hoping they both had great days, because i've already informed you that they both have AWESOME teachers!

New Teachers!!!

We are so excited in the McCreary house because last night we found out who our teachers for the 2009-2010 school year will be! Griffin will be in third grade and his teacher is Mrs. Phillips. Molly will be in first grade in Mrs. Barr's class! They are both WONDERFUL teachers from what we hear! Mrs. Phillips even has her very own website. . . click HERE to see it! How cool must a teacher be that has her own website?
We are dreading the end of summer, but looking forward to a great school year! Both kids know several friends in their class so that will make the first day so much easier! Griffin's best buddy from last year - Coleman - is in his class. Molly has a couple of special little girls in her class, and several little boys that are sweet as pie!
We are looking forward to a great year!
