First Day of 3rd Grade

 I can't believe Lyndon is in 3rd grade!  My first year of teaching was in 3rd grade when Lyndon was only one year old!  I thought it would be decades before Lyndon was that big and now it seems like yesterday!
Lyndon's morning began with his favorite...pancakes, but he was too nervous to eat more than a few bites.  He then opened his 1st Day of School Cone filled with a few goodies.

I then hurried out the door since I had to be at school extra early for the 1st day.  Cody and Lyndon came later.

Such a 'big' kid!

Lyndon with his homeroom teacher.  They change classes in 3rd grade which Lyndon is loving.  Why didn't I think to get a picture with the other two teachers???????  Lyndon is also super excited about having a locker this year.  We had it organized before the 1st day-he couldn't wait!  I also didn't get a picture of it..... I can tell I was frazzled!
Lyndon had a great day and after school Memere took him for his 1st Day of School ice cream at DQ.  Lyndon was then Mr. Silly as the pictures portray!

I am excited to watch Lyndon grow and learn in 3rd grade.  He has three awesome teachers and already loves them all.  Yeah, to a great 1st Day of School!

With school around the corner we are busy, busy getting ready for our relaxed summer days to end and our busy school schedules to begin.  If I didn't catch-up on blogging today I'm not sure how long it would take before it happened.

River Walk Day #3

Humidity pictures from our balcony before heading home on Sunday.

We had a great time and definitely will visit San Antonio again.  I love family time!!!!!!

River Walk Night #2

Saturday we began the day with Alamo at the Imax followed by touring the Alamo.

We then did a Mirror Maze which was crazy!!!!!  Lyndon loved it.


We then went to Ripley's for a 4D video.

The video was skateboarding and snowboarding.  It was really neat!

I've never felt so short until I stood by a replica of the tallest man in the world.

We then swam at the hotel before heading back out onto the river walk.

We also enjoyed another boat ride since it was a favorite.

Outdoor stage entertainment.

My favorite building again.

Famous building-law school turned 5 star hotel.

Lyndon wanted to eat here once I explained the concept of being rude.  He thought it sounded like a lot of fun; however, I feel confident he would not enjoy it once the table turned.  Since Cody andI haven't eaten their either we were unsure if it was appropriate for children.

This is where we ate lunch.

Our hotel.

Super last night.

A fun place for next time.

The mall.

A gift from another country, but I can't remember which one.

Lyndon was very excited that he was aloud ice cream so late at night!

Mr. Silly!  I bought this hat; however Lyndon loved it!  I must admit he looked much better in it.  He wore it for much of the trip and he received numerous complements.  One lady insisted on knowing where it was purchased.
