All oranged out

So it is that time of year again. There has been so much going on around town. First, of course the parade. James loved the marching and the drums were his favorite.


We also take him to band practice for extra dancing:


Dancing at home with Andy. We are trying to teach him to dance with others in preparation for a wedding at the end of the month.


And here is Mark and Andy:


You should hear James do the cadence count. He goes "2-3-E-O-E-O" cause those are the only letters and numbers he knows. SO CUTE!

First Day of School

James started school! Ok, it is really MMO, but it is something. I should mention that we got into the end-all-be-all of MMO...that's right, it is at the methodist church! We were first in line to turn in our application.

Here is James modeling his new backpack:

James liked it so much, he offered to carry E's backpack...although he did say over and over it was "heavy". What a gentleman!

Unlike all the other crying toddlers, James ran into the classroom and never looked back! He was still happy to see me when I picked him up.

ETA: Here is a picture of Andy. He enjoys the quality time with mommy and not having to worry about getting run over.

Only 4 more years until real school!

Hot Dog! James is 2!

Well, actually, he isn't two until Friday. Due to the fact that every saturday in September is a Clemson home game, we had James's birthday party a little early. It was a "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse"/Turtle theme. The turtle theme really took over when we decided to have it at a park with a turtle theme. James loves turtles! Here is James playing at the park.


John and James hamming it up eating hot dogs.

The whole family, with James's own little turtle cake:


James loved his presents!


And thank you to Andee for holding my baby. Also, thanks for not running off with him.
