First day of school

Typical Culwell start Aidan and Maude were prepared yesterday. Backpacks were laying at the end of their beds and clothes were already picked out. They both were up as soon as they heard me say time to get up. Both of them were too nervous/excited to eat breakfast. Joshua was last to get up, rolled out of bed went and ate a CRAZY mess. Then as we stepped outstide to take first day of school picture he looked at Aidan and Maude and said "Oh I need a backpack" then reached behind the backdoor to unload his backpack from the last day of school last year. Walked out with it unzipped and holding a football. Dropped Aidan off at MIDDLE SCHOOL!! When he got out I said "you have your schedule right?" His eyes said it all. So quick call to Dad to run it up the street. While I dropped off the other two I was looking for a place to park and asking Maude if she knew where they were going, when Joshua said "I got this Mom, Maude just come with me and I will show you were to go." Maude said "Ok Mom just drop us off at the door." And somewhere in the midst of crazy morning traffic and not so awake I actually let him take her!!!! What was I thinking?
3rd, 4th and 6th

Oh Roxy

She loves the kids and I mean loves them!!! She hugs all the time it's so weird to watch her put her paws around them. This is her loving on Joshua. She just doesn't know she is 65 pounds of love... They kind of love her too:)

Sweet Maude

I hope this never changes. Maude and I toured a museum in Waco. We both sat on opposites sides of the table and drew what we wanted our coat of arms to be. When we got up to see we were almost identical in what we had drawn. I have to say dragging my kids around from camp to camp and chasing them from event to event I pray this will always be shown in my life as the center.

How lucky am I that I get to spend time with this gorgeous girl inside and out?


Cody has been checking standings on the Olympics before we watch them and it has been driving me nuts!! So tonight I begged him not to give me any indication on who won or didn't And then he slipped.... Guess who is going to watch the Olympics in the garage apartment?
