Watching them leave on the bus this morning was bittersweet. I imagine it won't get any easier, especially as I watch Camdyn and then Rowyn start the next phase of their lives. Things have certainly been quiet here this morning, well, except for Lumpy wrapping her watermelon Dubble Bubble gum around her legs. I think I took half the hair off her thigh trying to get that crap off.
I can't wait until the kids are home, so I can hear all about their first day!

I decided to cut Cooper's faux hawk off today. He's had his "dragon hair" since he was two, but he rarely wants it spiked anymore. so it was time to come off. While cutting his hair, Lumpy apparently decided she needed a cut as well. She snuck the scissors out to the mirror in the other room and gave herself a trim.

A friend shared this link with me and really, it's one of those stories that restores your faith in human nature. I wanted to pass it on.

We just got back from visiting Brendan, Christina, and their new fur baby, Oz (no, not from the Wizard, they're big Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans). Oz wasn't real sure about us, but if your house was just taken over by 3 kids and a Lumpy, you'd be a little apprehensive yourself. Anyway, they just bought a house in the Shaw district of St. Louis, it's adorable and even has a great little fenced in yard for Oz.
On Saturday, they took us to the City Museum in downtown St. Louis and it is quite possibly the coolest place I've been to...EVER! The pictures I took don't do it justice and only show about a quarter of the things to do there. There are caves to explore, tunnels that go underground, a ferris wheel, a 5-story slide, a skateless skatepark,...seriously, this place was sic!
Meghan and Camdyn off to their first adventure with Papa watching on.
Brendan and Cooper in one of the many tubes across the ceiling.
Meghan takes a turn.
Rowyn wanted out of the stroller in the worst way. The museum was tough to do with a stroller, there was a Toddlerland which she enjoyed, but aside from that, the museum is best suited for kids Camdyn's age and older.
Cooper goes down a tree slide.
Clyde and Camdyn climb up into the ceiling and the unknown!
Up in the ceiling peeking out...looks like they're in a hampster cage! The ceiling had strips of white fabric and Christmas lights all over, the effect was really neat!
A view of the outside museum, more hamster tubes and an airplane!
Riley and Christina headed for the airplane!
Brendan, Riley, and Cooper heading up, up, up!
The school bus you can go in on the roof!
There were nooks and crannies everywhere, you could literally explore that place all day for several days and still not see everything. Thank you Brendan and Christina for taking us, we had a blast!!
