10 on Tuesday

1. I'm going to start contributing to an etsy blog!  http://etsyfix.blogspot.com/  I'll be doing a post every Friday.  I'm so excited!

2. I can hardly stand how excited I am about the Glee finale tonight... though I've already cried about it being over for a season.  Pathetic, yes.

3. Zac is into hitting now... when Deacon is in his way, he hits; when I'm doing something he doesn't like, he hits.  How do you get a 1 year old to stop hitting?  It used to be just random or something he seemed to do for fun... but now it's a reaction- he does it when he's mad.

4. Deacon's Lego party made me so happy... I never in a million years expected it to be as fun as it was.

5. Even though it was really fun, I really don't see myself having an at home birthday party for a LOOOOONG time.  It was so much work... but you know, I'll be honest, it was really neat to be able to look at it all and know that I did it.

6. Deacon is stoked about going to Kindergarten... but he doesn't really "get" that his current school friends won't be at the new school.  I know it won't be a big deal, but I hope he's not disappointed.

7. I don't think we ever made the official re-announcement... Deacon is OFFICIALLY going to Carden. We un-enrolled him at the charter/public school and gave our deposit to the private school- Carden.  I am SO at peace with our decision and SO excited... this school is so for us.

8. Deacon told me that he doesn't really like my singing... but he really likes when my mom sings.  He says that "Grandma has a pretty voice." If you know me and know my mom... or how either of us sing... you'll understand why I have never, in my life, been more offended.  Well, I guess it's a good thing I didn't ever finish my undergrad degree in Music.

9. Our house is surrounded by ant hills... and they do make their way into our house. I think they enjoyed our birthday party as much as anyone. Thank goodness for Terro ant traps... they're amazing.  Oh, and cinnamon- works like a charm... and I don't mind so much if Zac (or Deacon) ingests some cinnamon.

10. WE'LL BE IN OHIO IN ONE MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Who knew one could be so excited about OHIO!?!?

According to Deacon, I also am MUCH funnier, and I tell better jokes. AND I don't need to wear make up, either. Deacon let Amanda know that she should not leave the house without make up.

Funny! Sounds like everyone is having a great time.

Is it funny that I want to meet your mom now, Amanda.

Amanda ... I think you should have Mom take the boys home with her when she leaves so you can have a couple weeks honeymoon. I am going to Ohio but the first of July so I COULD SEE THE BOYS!!! And Milo!! and I can work with Red (I mean Zac) on his hitting. I can't wait to eat L/E Perch!
