A New Phase

There have been a lot of changes aound the Peters’ house this past month.

While July 30 was Creighton’s first birthday, it was also my last day at work. So while we were celebrating and watching him do this:

We were also wondering what life would look like when we got home.

And for the most part, last week, life looked like this:

All my little duckies in a row (well at least for that millisecond in time) We had a pretty good week and we’re going to get even better because I bought this:

So far, it’s not working, but I bet I have to read it for that to happen.

On top of that, I did this:

My first 5K, and to my knowledge, no one needs iceskates in “you-know-where.”

And then, the biggest “and then”, is that Olivia starts Kindergarten in the morning. We met her teacher on Friday. I love her already, she’s all cuddles and sweetness.

Life looks different, that is for sure, but it’s going to be great.

But first, I think we’re going to have to get this other darn tooth out.

It’s about to get interesting, folks.

And now, I might just have time to update this old blog.

What I came home to…

Olivia: Dad I lost my tooth today.

Me: Really.. that’s great.  How did it happen.

Olivia: I pulled it out.

Me: Really??

Olivia: Yeah…Mom, tried to tie a string around it and pull it but it didn’t work.  So, I just twisted it around,  wiggled it, then twisted it, then wiggled it, the twisted it and it came out.

Me: eeehhh. Did that hurt.

Olivia: No.

…and only 4 days to Kindergarten.

Happy Birthday, Man Cub.

It’s been a year.

It’s been the best one so far.

The world is better place with you in it, Creighton.

We love you!

Enough said.  Just look at these three.

Big finish to a great weekend

This was a great weekend.  The weather was awesome, nothing to do but hang around the house.  Today the entire family spread 40 bails of pine straw.  (Creighton watched).  We filled the sandbox up with sand and had another run with the sprinkler.

Tonight we finished it off with a low country boil with The Greens.  Good food and good company.  Good times were had by all.

Ghetto Sprinkler…Summer Fun

Yesterday was a great day in the yard.  The kids had a blast with the water hose.  Notice how I jammed it into the ground.  Nice huh.

Sick Day

Cartoon therapy always seems to help.  Good luck today Katie… feel better Cre. 🙂

Time is Flying.

We have more to blog about than ever before but, because of that, we have less time to blog than ever before. Go figure.

Josh went to Spain. I’m only a little bitter.


Creighton got moved up to the big tub. Bath time is a whole new adventure.


He also started to crawl. . .

and stand up (excuse the baby barricade). . .

he has five teeth now . . .

and got a visit from his Mimi.


And oh, my Charlotte. She is going to be a star.

A dramatic finale, n’est-ce pas?


As for my oldest child, we just got her registered for Kindergarten. Kindergarten!

She looks so old in this picture.

That’s all for now.
