Always Have A Dream

Always have a dream
Forget about the days when its been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about mistakes that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learnt.
Forget about misfortunes you encounter,
but don't forget the times you luck has turned.
Forget about the days when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.

First Day of School

Well today is Cody's first day back to school after a very short summer!! I can't believe the trees are already starting to change. Not that I don't mind the colors, but that just means that cooler weather and you all know what follows after that!
Cody has been very excited about going back to school. One of the reasons why is that he has glasses now, and second because he said I got the "Teacher of my dreams". I never wanted to go back to school, the only reason I looked forward to it was because of new clothes and a new lunch pail! I would have much rather stayed stuck in the summer and played!!
Here a few weeks ago Mike & I realized that Cody was setting his chair in the middle of the living room to watch TV. We asked him one night to sit on the couch to watch, and he said he couldn't see that far away. Well, we took him to the eye doctor and sure enough! He picked out his own frames, he thought that was really cool, but we had him pick from the bendable frames. So hopefully it will save on having to buy more because of broken glasses!!
Anyway he's at school right now, and I'm hoping everything is going good for him. The other thing I forgot to mention is that he was really happy because one of the kids, that used to give him a lot of grief and torment, was supposed to be going to another school. Well guess who we saw this morning?! O'well, at least he's in another classroom! I'll keep my fingers crossed that he wont have any problems.
I didn't think I would, but I kind of miss him! Not used to having peace and quiet!

Twos-day - Shoes

  I can't believe how fast the summer went by.  I seems like just last week Cody was bringing home all his belongings from his desk at school. I guess I must have blinked one too many times!! ;0)  And now it's that time again... New backpacks, pencils, erasers, notebooks, etc. 
  We had to get Cody (another) pair of shoes.  I can't believe he is only nine years old, and his shoes are almost as big as mine!!! I always joked with Mike that Cody would be wearing the same size clothes as him before he hit middle school!  Well, I didn't actually think
this would be the case!! My gosh they grow fast, don't they?!?!
  Sorry about not having people for my pic, but I just couldn't help it when I saw his shoes sitting next to mine! (and yes I know, I need some new sandles!!)
Stop by and visit Debi to join in 'Two for Tuesday'
Have a great day!!
