Ok...mom is on her knees begging for everyone to forgive her for being a total complete slacker for the last...oh...THREE WEEKS??? She has lots of pic updates of vacation, visitors, Holden's football practices and other assorted festivites to share with you (in good time) but we're going to ease back into our routine with an all too familiar annual event...
HOLDEN'S FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!!!!
Mom's two legged baby is a SIXTH GRADER!!!!!
You may notice that it's DARK outside...that's because although Holden's school is K-6 (that's how they roll down here in the corn apparently) BUT...he is in BAND which is offered at the Middle School during first period, which means that poor Holden has to get up at the butt-crack of dawn to catch the evil Middle School cheesewagon at SIX FRIGGIN THIRTY!!!! I'm pretty sure that goes above and beyond "jackassery" and has transcended into "ass-hattery"! Six thirty!!! Sheeeeesh!
Here is Holden the renaissance man playing his French Horn in his football pants/pads. Mom says she can't wait for the first concert so she can hear fifty renditions of "Hot Cross Buns"!
ANYWAY...back to the issue of getting up at O'Dark-Thirty this morning...
I knew that Holden was getting ready to LEAVE me, so I got all angsty and barky (which you can imagine mom REALLY enjoyed hearing so early in the AM!)and tried to BLOCK him in!!!!
My staged "sit in" didn't work out so well though....
He stepped RIGHT OVER ME and got onto the cheesewagon!!!!
Mom tells me the SAME crap is going to happen tomorrow, the next day and the day after that too! WhatEVER...I'm going back to BED!
Ok...in my slackerdom...I haven't even been keeping up with all of you, so I promise to come visit all of your bloggies in the next few days and get caught up!!!
