Mothers Day Flowers.....ok, maybe not

Grayson set off to pick all the white flowers with yellow centers in the yard today.  Silly me - I thought someone was doing something nice for me for Mothers Day.  Nope.  Grayson quickly informed me that they were NOT for me.  They were for PopPop.  Oh well...he's still pretty darn cute.

3.5 yrs old!

I can't believe he is 3.5 years old!
He pretty much always looks like this.  Dirty, disheveled, and grinning ear to ear.

Tomato Bed is Almost Ready!!

It's not much to look at, but it makes me happy.  Its four feet deep and about three feet wide and it has been triple dug - by hand - every little weed or root that was invading it removed, and not it is ready for my tomato plants.

Enough already!

I am done, done, DONE with the snow this winter.  We have had 19, yes 19, snow days at school.  It is like the winter that just keeps on giving.  Only it isn't really winter any more.  It is spring.

I see my SC/FL friends posting their pictures of flowers in bloom, having lunch outside, playing in the green grass with their kids, laying by the pool, splashing in the garden hose, and so on.  And you know what, I'm jealous.  Yep.  Green as green gets.

I'm not proud of this fact, but it is true.  You might be wondering why would something so silly make me so green with envy??  Well, let me tell you why!  THIS is what March 17 looked like out my back door ---------------->>>>>

And THIS is what March 18 looked like when I was driving to
work in the morning:

He's feeling better

Yeah, he is feeling better!
So I think he is feeling a little better.  Gabe was told he needed to help clean up a bit.  Since his throat is still tender, he ran and got a piece of paper and wrote this:

It says: "I'm not cleen in up!" 
I think this is first ever sentence he is written all on his own. (It supposed to say "I'm not cleaning up!)

New Glasses!

After our visit to UVA last week, we learned Grayson's vision had improved slightly.  We had noticed he was looking over his glasses a lot and the doctor said the new script should help.  We went to pick out his glasses on Friday.

He got two pairs (because they get broken pretty often) and he was THRILLED that he found TWO pairs that were blue:

Chilling with Grayson

It's time for another overnight trip to UVA with Grayson.  Even though this involves going one doctor to another to another - he loves it.  Leading up to the trip he kept asking when we were going to go to the "show and tell--" (hotel.) For reasons only a 5 year old can understand, staying in a hotel is the BEST thing ever.  His favorite things about the hotel are the unlimited access to the tub (he stayed in for over an hour!) and getting to use the iPad all by himself.  We packed snacks and just spent some quiet time together after a really busy day.  

He also thinks the second bed is for him to put his "stuff," because he is thrilled with the fact he can sleep in the big bed with me.  
Other exciting things about this trip - getting to go to a restaurant.  Of course, he gets to do this at home - but going all by himself with Mommy makes it super special.

While I don't really like having to travel and spend two days visiting various doctors - I do enjoy the time spent with Grayson by himself.  Without his brothers around to compete with his super sweet personality really shines.  The meltdowns and "grumpy" fits are pretty much non-existent. 

I love him so much :)  I hope he stays this sweet forever.
