Ty's cupcake tree with all his favorite things...

You're funny, confident and have a very short fuse. The looks you give are to die for and that laugh will get anyone going.
Love you little bear!
The first day was great! He walked in like he owned the place, played and explored everything around. He was in love with all the cars outside, and the sand, and the water table. It's going to be a fun year!

Song time with new teacher and new buddy..
Back to work, digging a tunnel under the ground
(I think they added water later, too much fun!)
On the home front, here is the finished closet:
I may add a shelf in the gap from the first picture, but we'll see. I should probably move the shelves around a bit, but we'll see how it functions for now. It's just really nice to have the bags and suitcases unpacked, and to have my clothes hamper back (it was full of clean close as well!)
Yay, parents are coming today, should be here any time! So off to start our busy rest of the week/weekend!

Although, so far it's been fine. She's a little short in the classroom, but she's also going 100 mph. It's been nice to send her an email question and have it answered within a few hours, instead of maybe a day or two.
On a sad note....
Poor Goldie kicked the bucket today. Apparently if you give the gold fish part of your taco, it doesn't agree so well. But we can't complain, he's lived almost 2 1/2 years in his bowl, pretty long life span for a goldfish living through 2 toddlers. So it looks like we'll be buying a new one this weekend!

Keith was busy today, digging out a spot for the big shed to go. Then he cleaned off the patio so that it's usable for next weekend. Maybe soon I'll invite friends over to visit. Once the closet system is up, probably tomorrow's task, most of the majors are done for now. I'd like to have an open house party, so we'll see, it would be nice to have everyone over at once and get it done.

There is a monorail that goes over the entire fair grounds and is an awesome way to plan what you would like to see so we started there...
Then we found the live stock barns, a must for anyone with kids. Saw the new baby animals, laughed at the goats and watched a small exhibit of fish and crab. From there we made our way to the kids park to find a couple of ride that we could all go on, not so easy with an almost 2yo. But we were able to go on the giant slide, hot air balloons (up, down and spins) and the Dizzy Dragon (a small scale tilt-a-whirl). Tyler laughed the entire time, so it was a good time.
We were hot and tired, snow cones for all! (Or one big one to share 3 ways)

Decided that putting them on canvas was the way to go so that in a couple of years if we decide to change the decor' we won't be peeling wall paper off the walls. It turned out cute and I can finally mark it as done.
Then the office was next on the list. Organized things to go on the shelves, not really settled on this yet, but it's a start. I also took all my scrapbook paper out of my big tote bag and organized it in the shelf on the left. So I can see it now, my scrap paper is all in the top bins according to size and the full pieces are filed below by size. Some time I'll go back and do some color, design sorting as well, but at least for now it's more assessable.
Then we were able to move in the big wardrobe from our room. With the closet the way it is (no not up yet) we don't need anymore hanging space like at the hold house. So I'm going to use it in the office. I didn't realized it, but I can add shelves to this on the inside, so that' on the list list.
Very busy and productive day that included an hour trip back and forth to the school office to deliver the final paper work for Ty. We are all set with our admission passes for school! YAY!!

SIL was married to new BIL from Australia Friday afternoon. It was a lovely little family ceremony then a bigger reception in the evening. Long story short, they were either to get married by Fri or he was out of the country for an unknown amount of time. So they shotgunned, we had a party, and everyone is on their way to legal!
The cake, before it completely melted (ice cream cakes)...
Getting worried about future college years,
Office closet shelves are done...
Kitchen cabinets complete....
Flag pole is up and set on back-to-school...
Even the duck got a bath and a new outfit.
And just because he wanted to see himself on the camera....
That was our weekend, in a nutshell. I was even able to squeak out a little time to hit up Michael's for their lame coupon sale! Hopefully we'll survive the week of errands, going to the fair, doctor check-ups, and starting back to school things. YIKES! Here we go!
