"School"

This picture was taken on Weston's first day of school at Little Wildcats!
He was cheesing and so excited to go bye-bye!
Weston is officially in his 3rd week of "school" and going strong! I cannot even tell you how nervous I was for him and so worried that he would be scared and think we were never coming back for him!!
I have prayed so hard that he would really like it there and so far he has done great! He was so excited to go at first and didn't cry at all! Since then he has cried some when we drop him off but his teacher said he doesn't cry long at all, and that he's been having good days! I know that one big things that have helped is that cousin Annabelle is there too and they get to be in the same class! YAY!!! They are the sweetest cousins and they are very close, so I know that its comforting for Weston to get to have her with him all day. I am sooooo glad. I cannot even describe what a relief it is for us that he has been doing good so far in "school" :-)
THANK THE LORD!!!

"Chattanooga, this week-eeeeeend"

This past weekend we randomly decided to take a little trip to Chattanooga to take Wes to the aquarium and to the zoo there. We left early Friday afternoon and headed for the aquarium.
Weston was so excited when we got there and loved seeing all the different fish and animals. He liked the stingrays and even tried to pet them.
The tightwad in me did NOT want to splurge on the nice hotel room but I'm sooo glad we did! It was super nice!! I think Weston was just as excited about the room and the giant bed as he was about everything else!
then we went down for a little pool time....
Weston made 2 sweet little friends at the pool that he had so much fun playing with.
He cried for them when we all had to leave!
We got up Saturday morning and went to the zoo. It was pretty hot but we played it smart and got there early so we weren't miserable. It worked out perfect.
We could not believe how pretty these jaguars were, but they kept pacing back and forth in front of the window and purring really loud. It was kinda scary! But it was still really neat!
We left the zoo and Carson had to make a stop at the Sportsman's Warehouse to check out the duck hunting gear and shotgun shells and then we headed towards home. I love that it was only a 2 hour drive. Its was so nice and fun to do something out of our norm. I told Carson it felt like we had gone on vacation and we were only gone for 1 night!
We will have to do it again sometime soon. It was so much fun!
