Though I wish he'd sleep until 6:00a, I do enjoy spending my early mornings working out with my little man.  He 'works out' and then spends the rest of time watching Gilmore Girls with me, where he thinks it is interactive tv.  If they have an umbrella on the show, he has to get his.  If the main character puts on her backpack, so does Matthew.  Though I am sometimes exasperated by the mess this creates, I love spending my morning with the boy.

Just Like That

Summer ended and school began.  

Kinder, 3rd, and 5th
The week was a struggle as we transitioned, but I think it was successful as (for the first time in 3 years) none of the Hoy children cried on Friday evening!  Maybe it was because we were smarter than in years past and hung out at home eating frozen pizza and watching Phineas and Ferb, but I'd like to think it is because they are getting older and able to hold themselves together better. 

I celebrated the end of the first week of school (which was awesome) by going to bed about 20 seconds after the kids did.  We all need to work on our school stamina.  It is a 38 week marathon, not a one week sprint.  So, here's to 38 great weeks to come!
