Mandarin Pumpkins

It's Currier's turn to provide the classroom snack.  Seriously, what would we do without Pinterest and it's adorable ideas?

Instructional Baseball

 We signed Currier up for Instructional Baseball coached by the College of Charleston coaches and players.
Currier was thrilled to see that the Aukamp boys were also signed up for the program.  It was every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6:15-8:00 which was late for school nights and hectic for family dinners.   
Regardless he finished the program and received a trophy.  We're proud of him!

Pumpkin Patch 2013

This year our annual trip to the Boone Hall Plantation Pumpkin Patch happened to be the morning after my 40th birthday party.  Although a wee bit hungover, it was still a memorable, fun time.

Grabbing "40" by the Horns!

This was my birthday present from my husband. He totally misunderstood and thought I said I wanted to get "bucked" hard for my 40th birthday.

I envisioned myself looking sexy like Debra Winger riding the bull in Urban Cowboy but a chicken biscuit fell out from in between one of my fat rolls and I broke my toe! 40 is fabulous.

Being surrounded by my loving family and over 50 friends along with dozens of their kids and dogs made this my best birthday yet!  I was completely passed out and in bed by 5 PM but that's how 40-year-olds roll.

Mom & Son Date Night

Since Currier's in school and I work several evenings a week we don't see each other very often so we decided we needed an evening out together—just the two of us.  We went bowling but first he requested we stop by Kohl's to buy a Tony Hawk sweatshirt that all the cool kids are wearing at school.  Being the push over that I am, I gave in and was given the title "Best Mom in the World!"  We had a great time bowling (I won just so you know!) and it was nice to spend time with just Currier.  He opened up and told me that he doesn't have a girlfriend but he wishes he did.  He also told me there's a mean kid in his class.  I felt honored that he shared this with me.  We're making this date night a monthly ritual!
