Another preschool graduate

My baby graduated preschool this week.  
Last preschool graduation I'll go to for my own kiddos.  I feel like I should be more upset than I was but I'm loving this stage of life. Loving that my kids are becoming a little more independent.  Loving that Nate and I can go on a date and not have to worry about getting a babysitter anymore.  I'm sure they're angels when we're gone.
When my kids start leaving the house and living on their own I'm sure I will be a hot mess but right now things are good. Life is good. 
(Ignore, once again,  the poor quality of pictures from my phone.  They seem extra bad this time.) 

Baylor is more than ready for Kindergarten and I'm excited for him. 

I also got to spend the day on Friday at the Hogle Zoo with Dax for his field trip.  
All I have to say is teachers are amazing.  Enough said.

Then I came home to Dilon and his friends who wanted to play ping pong.  Only problem is we don't have a ping pong table.  They improvised.  I have never felt more white trash in my life.
picnic table- check
skateboard for net- check
spatulas as paddles- check
3 happy teenagers- triple check

whatever floats your boat boys and keeps you from driving me nuts works for me.  

And Grif is always M.I.A. 
He's probably down in his man cave enjoying life with no one bothering him.

Happy 12th Grif

^^This here is my new favorite 12 year old.

Grifin "gus" Wright turned the big 1-2 a couple days ago.  

He chose to go to Texas Roadhouse for his b-day dinner. 
Actually he chooses to go to Texas Roadhouse every year for his birthday. This year he jumped out of his comfort zone and actually sat on the saddle.  He wouldn't do it the other years.  I thought it was because he didn't want all eyes on him.  He confessed it was because he was afraid he wouldn't be able to get his leg up over the saddle to get on.  I'd say that's a legit reason.  Imagine me trying to throw my leg over a saddle. I would probably end up on the floor.  On my back.  

He asked for 2 things for his birthday
1- Hawaiian sandals
2- Money/Gift cards
I can handle that.

and of course, grandma squeaker nailed the cake again.

 Happy Happy Birthday my Grif.  
Love your guts
