A.K.A. The most fabulous anniversary present I would have ever wanted. I much prefer homemade gifts to bought ones any day. The hubs knows that and busted out an original song AND movie for me. He sold me on another 10+ years!

I almost cannot even write this. I just can't believe Simon is already 5!!
I'm in some hardcore denial over here.
This kid has given me joy and his more-than-fair share of challenges in the pasts five years.
He is my proof that there is plenty of room in your heart for each child, but in a completely different way. (how can kids be so different from the same genetic line??)
He is full of sweetness, and balances that out with ornery. He still loves puppies, loves to draw, loves junk food, loves music, loves a good joke, and loves books.
I love you Simon Charles!

How can he be 7?!?
I adore this kid so much. I don't know if I could ever fully explain how he has challenged me - for the much greater good of myself (and otherwise....) - and I would never change a thing.
Happy #7, Henson! I love you!

|Clyde Howell is the most fabulous public Pre-K ever (well, in my opinion). One of the fantastic things about this school is they still do home visits a couple weeks before school starts to meet each student and familiarize the kids with their teacher so that they feel more comfortable starting something new. Two other amazing things about CH are these jewel teachers, Mrs. Potter & Mrs. Perrey (also who Henson had in Pre-K). We love them!!|
|Each new school year also means the beginning of my annual home project to deflect the emotions of the kids getting bigger.... Simon starting public school means a large project: laundry room makeover.|
|Clegern Info Day - 1st grade w/ Mrs. Holloway|
|Clyde Howell Info Day - Simon was a little shy at first, but Henson helped show him around his classroom and chatted with Mrs. Potter some, and then Simon warmed right up and did great.|
|It begins. First day '15-'16.|
|Lined up in the hall waiting for the bell.|
|Finding his cubby.|
|Henson waiting for the bell with best bud, Garrett.|
|We also love Clegern!|
We made it through the first day, and onward! (READ: I made it through.)
