And we're off!!!!

He is so excited

His backpack is bigger then him

The " BOYS"

Mrs. Zavisch

I still can't believe my Little boy is in Kindergarten. I am so proud of him. We sent him off with the Courage key and his first words when I picked him up were " Mom, I didn't even need my key.. I wasn't even nervous" That melts my heart. Many times I don't give him credit for growing up and not being so little. He has his friends and when they started to get to the playground they all played together, never looking back. When it was time to go to class he ran up and gave me a kiss ( I don't want that to ever change... even though I know it will when he gets older) and asked for the " KISSING HAND" and waived goodbye.

He loves his teacher and so do we. She is the perfect amount of happiness, Joy, correction, structure, love.... I could go on. What a blessing Kaydon has her. She has not only helped him make the transition into the world of big kids, but mine as well. I know he is safe and loved with her. I can't wait to see what this year brings!!!!

It gives you Super Hero Powers....

During our last visit to the Pediatrician we were informed that they noticed and irregularity in Kaydon's heartbeat! She kept re-listening and then decided that we needed to go see a pediatric Cardiologist!!! Talk about some scary words for a parent to hear. She stayed that everything may come out fine, she just feels that it needs to be looked into. We weren't in panic mode because we figured if it was urgent they would have sent us straight to the Hospital and not make an appointment.
It took a couple weeks to get him in, and we prayed a lot that he would be just fine and if there was anything the Dr.'s would find it now. He went in for his first EKG at 8:00am ( I am surprised at the lack of compassion and "child-like" bedside manners that they had with him) but the Dr. informed us that it looked "in the normal range". Good news!!! After a few more questions he had for us, he decided to send him home with a monitor for 24 hours to see what his little heart did through the day and how it reacted to things. What a trooper Kaydon was wearing this belt and cords all day! He never complained- even when he had to sleep with it on. His biggest concern was that people were going to make fun of him :( We just told him it made him look like he was a super hero and he loved that.
They said that it would take about 72 hours to download all the EKG's it took- over 50 pages-! Then the Dr. will go through and look at our diary of EVERYTHING he did for that 24 hour period. We had to note when he walked up stairs, ate, cried... etc!!!! They will call after that with the results! Keep praying that everything is fine and that this is just a precaution!

Mamma Mia!!!

Okay so tonight I got to go see Mamma Mia with my sister! It is so fun having her in town and being able to do these simple things together. I wish that I had more time when she was here to just hang and bond. Anyways, let me just tell you what a FUN movie this was. It was light hearted and happy! I have been stuck singing the song from the commercial and I know know that I am in need of the soundtrack! I love watching movies and going to movies (and it is such a treat to go) that I tend to think through the whole thing.... what will happen next, is that realistic.. etc! I just got wrapped up in the songs and had fun with it. A MUST SEE!!! it has also re-motivated me to getting Kasey and I are our plan for our 1st big vacation. Don't get me wrong it is years away.. but it will be AMAZING! I want to find the city and church in this movie and go there.

Happy Birthday Jen

I wanted to take some time to wish my sister a very Happy Birthday. I absolutely HATE the fact that we live so far away!!! I realize now, how much I took for granted the closeness that we once lived! I am so sorry for that. I wish , and pray, that one day we will live closer again!!!!

You teach me so many things and I am so grateful to have you as a sister and friend. Your marriage has taught me how to be a better wife and how important it is to be friends and have fun. I value having you and Gabe as examples.

You are an AMAZING Wife and Mother. It is so fun to watch you with your family. You have an incredible family and the cutest little boy. Zephyr is so smart, creative, kind, loving.... I can go on and on and on!!! You have done an amazing job. He is so lucky to have you as his mother. You put 100% into raising him and it shows.

You are an amazing AUNT!!!! I love watching the love you have for Kaydon, and all of your nieces and nephews. You have such a kind, welcoming, loving heart. There is no question when they say you are their favorite Aunt. You are there friend and they feel your love. Thank you for making them all feel sooo special!!!

Jen, you are an incredible Sister. You are thoughtful, loving, caring!!!!! I value you so much as my older Sister, and one of my Best Friends. Thank you for all you do, for all your love and for your contagious smile. We are so blessed to have you in our lives. I hope want to wish you a wonderful year full of fun, love and happiness!!!!

Our Little Get-A-Way

This year Kasey had a 3 day weekend for the 4th of July! We have not been to Mexico much this year so we wanted to make sure we took advantage of this opportunity. We ended up going just the 2 of us.. which is something we have NEVER done! What a relaxing trip. No schedule or plans... we just went with the flow! One thing that we have decided is that every time we go somewhere for a "vacation" we want to make sure that we try something new. It doesn't have to be a big thing.. just a new thing. Kind of a way to check things off of our " BUCKET LIST" So this trip we went PARA SAILING!!!!!! So much fun. We didn't even feel like we were moving. It was as if we were just sitting up in the air. No noise.... just PEACE!!!!

I want to take a minute to say how much I love my husband and how blessed I am to have him. I know that he does everything he can for me and our family! I can always count on him to make me smile and cheer me up. I know that our life isn't exactly how we want it right now.. but it is how God wants it right now. He is in full control and he has so many lessons for us... and there are many times we are blinded by our own desires to see it. When I look at Kasey, feel his touch, hear his voice or even think of him.. I see that God knows what he is doing. He brought me to my soul mate and he is forming us every day in his image. I have full Faith in God and Kasey!!!!
