Excitement is in the air!

This was actually from Saturday, but I waited to post until I had the pics to go along with it.

We woke up this morning to lovely cool weather.  I'm talking high 70's here, folks!  Oh, yeah, lovin' it!  I also got a toy organizer for the kids toys.  Boy is that making me a bit giddy, but on top of that, I also went to Target last night and got a wire frame shelf thing.  The kind you can put together any way you want.  First of all, it was on sale, as was a rug and some other things, so you can imagine that I was close to bursting because of all the deals I got.  (Just so you know, I have had the items I bought on a list and Sam and I have discussed getting them, so I was actually looking for them. To find them even cheaper, well, that's just a blessing/provision from God!)  Anyway, the huge mess that had accumulated on the overhead cab bunk where we have our computer is now a lovely organized area.  YIPPEEEEEEEEEE!  Clutter really bums me out. So, two messes now organized!!!!!  Another thing that we did was clean off the bottom bunk bed to prepare Zekey to sleep in it rather than his play yard.   We did have all the toys on it before the lovely toy organizer shelf.  I was a little apprehensive about moving him to a big bed.  He's just now 16 mos. and with Braden, I waited until he was nearly 3.  I'm of the school of thought that you just need to wait until the child is at the stage of understanding and then things go much more smoothly.  I'm really not into putting extra needless work and energy into something when you don't have to.  He's actually taking his nap in there on the bed now.  Yay.  We'll see about at night.  

Also, Sam took Braden on his first motorcycle ride.  We bought him a helmet about a month or so ago and have just now had the opportunity to try it out.  Sam rode around the rv park to make sure he could hold on tight and not let go.  He did such a good job.  There will be pictures to follow.  I'll also take pics of the organization.

Sidenote:  Zekey has slept on the bottom bunk bed since Saturday for both naps and bedtime.  He's doing really well.  I did have to put him back in his bed a couple of times for his naptime yesterday, but he caught on after the third time and didn't emerge until after his nap. Yay!
