You've Got a Friend in Me!!

A Free First For All.

Today was:

    • Everyone's first day back to school.
    • Dylan's first day of third grade. (He seemed right at home.)
    • Bryan's first day of first grade. (He was terrified!)
    • Lydia's first day in pre-K. (She couldn't have been happier!)
    • Elysa's first day in daycare. (We won't even go into how she felt about it.)

The Calm...

The calm...before the storm. I better get some sleep for tomorrow's FIRST days of school!

In the meantime, how are you liking the photopass photos? You like them one at a time, like I'm doing? Or would you rather just see them all in one entry and get it over with? I dunno, I'm kinda liking putting them out one at a time. Little surprise-ish, eh?

Happiness, Defined.

Finally, after months and months of watching Disney princess movies...
You finally realize you are holding Cinderellas hand. In real life!

True Love: Disney PhotoPass Style

Elysa's in love with "He Haw Cowboy" (aka Woody)

And I'm in love with the photographer that captured this moment!

This Little Wasp Sting Light of Mine.

Elysa got stung on the thumb yesterday. She was...ummm...trying to pick up a wasp with her bare hands. (??) Clearly, she's not a momma's girl when it comes to fear of bugs and her lack thereof.

Anyhow, poor baby girl was crying and her little thumb was beginning to swell up and I know it had to be throbbing considering that the wasps rear end was nearly the size of her tiny thumb.

She didn't want anyone to touch it, even if it meant that it would help the pain to go away. So the whole family came together to "trick" our littlest Godsey into letting us help her feel better. We mixed up some baking soda paste, put some on our thumbs, and began to sing "This Little Light of Mine", one of Elysa's favorites! She just loves to shout "NO!" after we sing "Hide it under a bushel". After a couple of verses and a little persistence from Daddy, she let us put some on her thumb and she joined right in.

And today, she is doing much, much better. =)
