Jack turns 6 in a few weeks.  We went to his school last friday so he could meet his teacher and see his classroom.  He clung tightly to my hand and hardly said a word.  When we were back in the car he confided that he was very nervous.  I sat in the back and held him and quizzed him from the list they gave us.  The one about what your kindergartener should know.  He can do everything except tie his shoes.  We hadn't thought to teach him that yet.  These little boys.  They're growning up. I think it's making me extra sentimental, both in life and in my writings. 

We all went to the bread store and then to walmart to get milk today.  The boys were very good, all things considered.  We were lucky enough to score one of the kid carts (not easy here in utah) and I rewarded their good behavior with some mini iced brownies off the bakery clearance cart.  They were SO excited. 

Before we left I took some pictures of them, because it's a rare day when everyone is dressed and clean at the same time.  They're growing so fast.

(are you as shocked as I am that Mr. Goose has stayed around? He puts up with a lot, that cat)
for example:

I just love these boys=)
