Time slow down Please!!

As I tucked Luke in tonight and asked him what his favorite part of his birthday was and he said When he fought Darth Vader. I realized how fast the years are going by. It wasn't that long ago that I was tucking Darth in and asking him what his favorite part of the day was.

So Dear Lukie on your 6th birthday...
Please slow down.. You are growing up way to fast.
You are my homebody.. You are my kid that would love to stay home in his Jammie's all day. You are the kid that it takes a good hour from the time you wake up until you are ready to do anything . You love being homeschool and I can't imagine doing it any other way. At least for now. You are amazing.. wise beyond your years. You are my thinker.You will analyze a problem 10 different ways before acting on it. You are my puzzle kid. You love those brain puzzles the ones where your suppose to fit like 10 blocks in a big block and there is only one way to do it. You also like games of strategy.
You are great sidekick to your best friend.. Your brother..

You can be the silliest , funniest, kid int he world. You have a great sense of humor but you do like order.
You are the kid that categorizes everything. Your Lego's, your army people, your books, you make patterns out of everything. You are the one who actually like to clean the playroom!!

You keep me smiling. All I have to do is look at you in the rear view mirror and you smile at me with that toothless grin and I fall in love again. You are super easy going but funny.. You don't like to sweat. Totally cracks me up.

You tell me almost everyday." Mommy I like spending the day with you" Honey if you knew how much mommy LOVED spending the day with you!
I love you tookie.. NOW STOP GROWING!!!

RIP Bobo Fet

So .. Landry took Luke's BRAND NEW Boba Fet lego guy to school today.. With out permission.
Of course He lost it.
This of course sent Luke into a well deserved fit. I would throw a fit too if it was my one day old toy and my brother lost it.
So anyways.. Luke goes to the play room to play and comes out and says mommy I need you..
I go back to the playroom to see Lukas Having a funeral for Boba Fet..
He has all the other lego guys on their stands and then he has a lightsaber and boba fets helmet on it.
He says look mommy its a RIP sign for bobo fet...
now its not a R.I.P. sign nope it says rip like I ripped my jeans..
Poor Bobo Fet..

Ok so there are a few benefits to having a dad who is "in the know"

Friday was run with the marauders night. Its a night all the 5th graders who feed into Marcus get to run thru the tunnel with the football players.

Well if you are the AP'S kid you get to slip in under the radar and be a big kid.
See the boys running behind the old lady who we hope is not still in 5th grade

look at how big those boys are

Oh and if you want to you can hang out on the field with all the players..
And If you really special..You can loose your front tooth right there on the field and have 10 adults on their hands and knees on the field looking for said tooth..
Yes I will post new pis of hte toothless wonder next..

Awwaahh waahh Woooo Put that thing away~~~

So my darling hubby is part Cherokee Indian. Not much but enough. He did grow up in Tahlequah Oklahoma. That is the capital of the Cherokee Nation. All the Street signs are written in cherokee, the stop sign is written in cherokee. It's an interesting little place..

Not everything in Tahlequah is little..

No ..

Some things are a little too big..

Some things are just well...

see for your self...

Yep those are loin cloths

Landry wanted to see the Warriors dance..

I think it has been a long time since these warriors have seen any type of war except for over the last piece of cake.

It was a fun weekend. The boys got a little history lesson along the way. It was a good weekend.

We saw family. Did some festivaling and laughed at the warriors who were very funny.

like the energizer bunny.. THey just keep coming OUT!!!

Luke lost yet another tooth.. Crazy...

He lost the one on the bottom next to his 2 permanent teeth.

REALLY!! HE is still 5 people !! 5!!! This is tooth #4..

Did I mention he was 5!!!

His brother didn't loose this tooth until he was almost 7.. Its crazy I tell ya.

I didn't even know it was loose until this afternoon

He was eating and got up and told me he lost half a tooth.I looked it was all there

Then walking into the school to pick up Landry, He goes here mom I lost my tooth.

I did finally figure out he is pushing them out with his tongue, they are not just randomly falling out BUT this is still ALOT..

SO anyways ,

For some reason he wanted to keep his tooth tonight. SO I told him to write the tooth fairy a note .


This is what I got..
Dear Toof fary

Kee Yah!!!

Yeppers .Its time for that post..
You knew it was coming.
You can skip it if you want..
SO here's the thing,
The other moms who's kids have been taking for 5 years .
We were all talking and we have been wondering when exactly do they start looking like they have been taking for 5 years.

Well that moment happened for Landry on belt test.

He was awesome!! He had everything down. He actually looked like a red belt. was like holy cow.

This is one of those things that I can't help him on, I can't make him practice.This was all him.I was very proud..

Mr. Drew.. He's awesome.. He's 17 homeschooler. unbelievable with the kids.
look at him go.. nothing like having to do a solo kata..
The first thing to touch your new belt is your mind.. You have to use your mind to focus your body. With your mind focused anything is possible.He has been told this since he was 4 .. I hope some of it sunk in.

Where did my babies go??

Oh time Why don't you slow down and let us enjoy these days a little longer.
We have had a couple of major milestones lately.. That has made me realize no matter how hard I try I can't keep them little.
Luke has officially started kindergarten. He is homeschooling so at least I get to keep a hold of him a little longer.
But I think the big thing was he lost his front tooth.. Look at that little grin
Landry started 3rd grade. He was nervous but excited. He just wishes school started at 10:00 in the morning. This is his new teacher.

WE rode bikes the very first day. His shirt says." the cool kids just showed up" Confident little thing isn't he.
