Tuesday - - School Day!!!!

Ok the much anticipated day came and went. Little honey went to school today!!

Of course, dressed like daddy in car t-shirt and jeans!! This is starting to be his favorite attire!!
Momma is NOT happy about this.

Hubby and I had decided that going to a preschool for a few days a week would be good to get some socialization in. We visited last week and it was decided that we would start today. Little honey was somewhat excited. We have been talking it up for a few days now. We even had to go to the store and get a new back pack. Of course little honey picked the biggest back pack in the store!! No changing his mind on it either.

Can you believe how big this thing is?? And he loves it!

He told me we could not take the camera to school and take pictures as it might hurt someones eyes there!! He is always looking out for the other guy!!

Momma was sad. He wanted me to stay at first, but as soon as we walked in the building he ran to his classroom and never looked back!!! Oh, how heart broken momma was today...

I know this will do him some good. We are still doing school work at home this will just help push him along faster. I have to keep thinking positive thoughts and know that this is for him...not ME!!!!

Oh what's a momma to do???

Boat Captain or Handy Man??

What will little honey be this week??
Here is little honey getting ready to drive the boat at Papa's lake house. He has so much fun driving the boat. He always wants to rev it up!! Labor Day weekend wasn't the best weather to go to the lake - but the getaway was nice! While we were there hubby wanted to drive to Springfield and visit some tool store. So off we went on Saturday. While we were there little honey found a junior worker outfit and of course batted his eyes and smiled and Nana bought it for him!! He is so spoiled! Here is the little worker now. As soon as we got home from church on Sunday he had to put it on immediately!! A True Worker indeed!!! Check out the rocket underwear!! Hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend ~ now back to work!!!!

updated garage

I was busy last week updating our garage door trim. I had seen this idea on a few houses in another neighborhood and thought it looked pretty good and boy did I want to try it! Here is the before ~
Just plain white trim like the windows and front door.
I used the third color (which is black and also my front door color) to add another punch by the garage. My thinking was "Hey the windows have shutters that are black, so why not outline the garage, too?"
Here is the After ~
What do you think?? Please leave a comment and let me know!!!

Tomato ~ Tomatoes

However you say it or spell it! I am having a tomato crisis!!! Look at how sad they look - leaves turning yellow and brown and falling off! And look at what else I found - (look away if you have a weak stomach)- droppings of some sort! And look at what it is doing to my tomatoes!! Any ideas?? Well I checked my sources this weekend. My dad had no idea. He thought it might be rats!! GASP!!! Not in my yard!!! But only one problem - whatever was attacking my tomatoes was only eating at the top - it didn't even look at the ones on or near the ground! Birds??? Well birds don't leave droppings like that. Hmmmmm. So I checked with my hubby's grandparents. They have been gardening for years and I thought they might have some ideas. Squirrels maybe?? Well in some neighborhoods yes - but not in mine. When we moved to this house it was new - with no trees in sight except the little twigs the builder put in the front yard. So NO squirrels here. They have yet to migrate (?) or move back to our neighborhood and we have been here for almost seven years! Rabbits perhaps? NO! They can't eat from the top of the vine!!! So today little honey and I went on a scavenger hunt. A mini science lesson if you will. Guess what I found?? Can you see it??? Photograph by: James Castner, University of Florida Four inches in length!! And about one inch in circumference!! It is huge!! And so pretty! I have never seen a caterpillar so big! I wonder what it will turn into? A big beautiful butterfly? Or just a big moth? Well little honey ran to his room and got his bug collector kit and momma put him inside so we could go investigate on the Internet. He was being a little shy for the camera and tilting his head!!! Any idea what it is yet???? It is called a tobacco hornworm or it's scientific name - Manduca sexta(Linnaeus). Weird! It also has a cousin the tomato hornworm. They are similar in size and color but their markings are different and the tomato hornworm lives farther south. They completely defoliate a plant - almost over night! This explains everything! I guess it starts to eat at night and then eats everything in sight it can get it's little mouth on and then drops the left overs all over the ground!! Little honey asked "Can we keep it?" Well I think we will try and keep the one in little honey's bug container to see what the moth will look like in a few weeks. What a great science lesson!! I have a feeling he may not make it -I think he has to bury himself in dirt to turn into a pupal cell. But we will try! It won't look as pretty as I hoped - but if it lives I will keep you posted! Now - off to the garden to dispose of the other four I found!! ICK!! Any one want to come over and do this job for me?????
