August iPhone Dump

This month flew by.  School started, dance practice kept the whole family busy with babysitting, Jett Boy had hand foot mouth and another virus of unknown origin, our Rebels kicked off a great season and next month will bring more red and blue and more work to do.

Game Day at Lafayette

It's no secret, I love an event.  I love to plan and prepare and make sure everyone is on board.  I love to have something to look forward to.  When I had my classroom it might be art on Friday or a countdown to a holiday.  In administration I have to keep us motivated in the office.  So when we had to have a TST meeting I thought why not make it a tailgate on game day and enjoy the mandatory meeting.  So that we did.  We dined on dips and donned our red, white, and blue.  Its a great time working with men and women who can work like the devil for our students and enjoy each others' company along the way.  

Tutor Tailgate 2014

It's game time again and the Pollards are so excited.  We tailgate with the Pontotoc Rebels, and each year the night of the first game the Tutor's host the whole crew at their cabin.  This year Cullen decided to stay home and watch the game by himself.  Jett and I braved the crowd alone.

Jett and Mary Kiley were super sweet and gave each other love and hugs. 

Life with babies and friends is fun, but so different than before babies.

Jett seemed to enjoy himself.  He loved playing with the big girls more than anything.  He absolutely adores Hannah and she loves him too so he spent his time at the adult table talking and being doted on. Imagine that my child loving attention.

Jett Boy's Second Countdown to Kickoff

Mama's of boys don't get to dream of ruffles, bows, or precious shoes.  Last year I decided to make a big deal of the little things, little boys could look forward to, so the Countdown to Kickoff was born.  Year two found me at my monogramming machine at four in the morning making sure to get his outfits finished, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Jett's First Trip to the Zoo

Jett Boy made his first trip to the zoo last weekend.  My brother thought it would be perfect with Cullen out of town and Kathy working, if we took the boys to the zoo.  

Henry loved the lions.  I haven't been to the Memphis Zoo since I was in kindergarten, and 26 years ago I don't remember it being so hot.

There we were at high noon enjoying the hippos, monkeys, and zebras.

Jett seemed to enjoy it all, but my fave was the Polar Bear exhibit and the Pandas.

I love watching these boys play together there are 11 months between them, and they are so sweet to each other.  When they grabbed hands on the way to see the giraffes my heart melted even more in the 105 degree heat.  Henry is a cautious boy and Jett just drug him along.  I hope they stay close and always enjoy playing together.  

Jett wanted to pull the wagon rather than be pulled in the wagon.  
Uncle Brett provided a better view so Jett jumped in his arms to get a better look at the giraffes.
By the time this last photo was made the boys and the adults were wilted.
