Seven more days to go

I still don't think we'll get it all done, but I wanted to pop in with an update. I think things are getting to me. I have to tell this story. Last night I was making dinner and I asked Austin whether we should have corn or mixed veggies. He looked at me with a look that can only be described as pure teenager (even though he's six) and said, "Why don't we have the corn in the fridge that you bought last week" I said, "Thanks Austin, I forgot we had that corn on the cob--great idea." He then said, "Mommy, I don't think your brain is very big when it comes to remembering things." I about lost it. That's the funniest thing I've heard in a while. And yes, with this move, I'm sure I'm losing some brain power--LOL.
It's been a busy week. Starting last Saturday, we had a bust of a yard sale, but did get rid of a lot of stuff (mostly free--lol). While we were doing the sale, we had a load of rock delivered for the front yard. Here's the boys helping Daddy move the rock :)

Tuesday night we went to the Mavericks game (local minor league team). Austin was given an "Outstanding Student" award at the game. He was so cute. He got to go down on the field and say "I am Austin from Mesquite Trails". I was so proud of him.

Yesterday my BABY turned three! I can't believe he's getting so big. We spent all day running around ordering and buying stuff for Saturday's party. He had a hard time wrapping his mind around that. He kept telling me, "But today is my birthday". So he ended up with a balloon and cupcakes. As you can see, he thoroughly enjoyed the cupcake.

Now today is Austin's last day of kindergarten. Last night I let him paint this flower pot for his teacher. He's such a creative little guy--can't imagine where that comes from--LOL! He had fun with it. I also slipped in a gift card for her too.

I know what you mean about the forgetful brain, we are moving in 3.5 weeks across country... I am seriously thinking I want them to put me in a coma from now until everything is unpacked in the new house!
Love the picture of your son with the icing face!

Love the icing around the mouth. LOL So funny. The boys seem to be very helpful for Daddy.

I hope everything falls into place for you over the next 7 days. Good luck with the move! :) Kelly
