8 is GREAT!













Kylie and Toast started school today. Kylie put on a confident face; being a 2nd grader, she knows her way around the school, and will quickly get into the routine. Toast was also excited and ready to go, that is until we actually got to school. He is with his buddies whom he did preschool with last year, which I thought would make him more at ease, but unfortunately he was scared silly. And when Toast gets scared or nervous, he just shuts down. As his mom I know how to deal with it most of the time, but I fear even though his teacher seems as sweet and wonderful as can be, my Toast might just be a hard one for her to crack. Time will tell.
Besides being the first day back to school, today is our 8 year anniversary. WOOHOO! Daniel took me out to celebrate Saturday night. We watched the sunset before heading to the Fun Factory where we raced go-carts, and played a round of mini golf. We then went to dinner at Olive Garden- can't go wrong there.
So the day we got married, Daniel had written me the sweetest love note, and every year on our anniversary, he has continued to do so. This morning was no exception. One of the many things that I love about my Daniel is that he is a romantic. His love notes are the best! He doesnt worry about being sappy, cuz he knows I LOVE it, and seriously when one is just so much in love- being sappy just adds to the fun, does it not? I love thinking back to our wedding day, and love looking back at all the adventures we have had since then, and am so grateful that I am married to my Daniel. He has made our love story as blissful as can be since the beginning, and I have no doubts he will continue to do so forever.
Besides our great date on Saturday, and the wonderful love note today, Daniel is giving me a SUPER EXTREMELY EXCITING gift, which I will write about later- but lets just say ALOHA-HA and let the count down begin!!!

That is adorable. I too love my husband because he gets sappy and writes me the best love notes too. What better place to be sappy than Hawaii too???? Just don't rent the mopeds! If you need to know why, come see my sister's leg before Wednesday (that's when she goes home:)

And I saw Toast this morning at school. His class had gone inside to their classroom and he was the only one standing outside. He didn't want to go in. He didn't really recognize me and wouldn't talk to me but I prompted him to go and he finally did, but I was watching out for the little guy. Bralen is like that too. I actually have to go into the class with him to even get him to stay. Hopefully, they will eventually grow out of it!
