Life Is Just So Daily

Real Life.

Real Life at the Casa de Lainey Paney....

There is clean laundry thrown over the back of the couch.
I may or may not be wearing yesterday's eyeliner.
Gage may or may not be dressed at all.
I'm likely wearing any random t-shirt with a cardigan thrown over it.
There's always lots of snuggling.

...and these pics were probably followed by "Mommy, can I play games on your phone?"
Swamp people {or some other men-wrestling-alligators show} was probably on the tv.

...and we wouldn't have it any other way!


Memorial Day, the Shenaniganz Way.

On Memorial Day, I took Gage to meet up with his buddy, C, and C's brother W at Shenaniganz for some video gaming fun and lunch. The boys had a blast!

After that....some fun in the sun! The neighborhood pool was crazy-a$$ busy, but we managed to find some chairs, and the kids had a blast. We met up with Jessica & R1 at the pool too. We all had a lot of fun, and a lot.of.SUN.

It was a great day!

Fun with my son....

Random Day...the Chuck E. Cheese Way.

"Gage, what do you want to do today?"
"Well, we could go to Chuck E. Cheese."
"Yes, we could."
Ten dollars never went so fast!
But---we went early in the morning, skipped the pizza, and it was just enough fun to keep him wanting to go back!


In One School Year's Time....

Start to Finish....his little artwork & look at how much it changed!

School's Out for Summer!

Last Day of School, 2012!

Last Day of Kindergarten....Oh my goodness. I can't believe it. I mean---I CAN believe my child survived Kindergarten...I just can't believe he's growing so fast. I can't believe we're already finished with Kindergarten!

What a whirl-wind....

The morning of the last day of school....

After school....we gave the librarian the card he made for her and little gift just for her. He LOVED the librarian! So cute. For the Kindergarten teacher, we went in on the group gift from the class, but we just weren't sure that the librarian would get her due credit, so Gage made her a special card just for her. He's so sweet!

After school pics....

The sun was in his eyes, but he happily picked a flower for me. Sweet boy!

What did we do after school? We went to get snow cones, of course!

Then, at home, he showed me his final task of mastery for the Kindergarten year: drawing a star.
How cute is that!?

After that, we went to the pool. Let me just say that throughout 2 years of PreK, Gage had one girlfriend: "M." Well, Gage & M went to separate elementary schools. For a while in Kinder, Gage has had his eye on "T". Well, then came "M2". T was out, M2 was in, but you can't talk about it. He will certainly set you straight if you refer to M2 as his girlfriend. He gets embarrassed and then mad.

So...anyhow...on the last day of school, we went to the pool in the afternoon.... Gage was playing with another Kindergartener in another class. We'll call her "KK." I snapped this shot with my iphone....
He's recently asked me to set up a play date with him & KK. Well, on the last day of school when they were swimming, I asked him if he was into KK now. He said, "She's friends with {M2}, so it's complicated."

Holy crap. The teen years are going to be complicated. I can already feel it.

Field Day, 2012

Field Day 2012 was a success!
Of course, we have nothing else to compare it too.
But, it was a hit with Gage, so I'll call it a success!

I volunteered kind of.... I didn't pick a particular station and help out there. I just went around with Gage's class from station to station. Good times.

It was kind of overcast and windy in the morning hours. Thank goodness! The afternoon was pretty warm, and the water events were welcomed by the kiddos...

Pics from Field Day 2012:

After Field Day, several of us met up at the neighborhood pool for some swimming & fun.

It was a busy, & tiring, & great day.

After the swimming....we had a tball game that night!
It was a very.very.very long day!!!
