Something Strange is Going On?

So my friend called me the other day and started telling me about this broom where her Mom works standing up all by itself. She said it had something to do with the way the earth was on it's axis right now. Of course I had to try this and it worked. I just did some Goggle searches for it and I found a couple of different things about it but not much. It seems like this is happening all over the country right now and some people say its because brooms can stand like that? I know my broom has never stood alone before so I tried it with my outside broom and it worked. Check out the video I took of it, even Logan got it to stand up. Whatever the reason is behind it I think it pretty cool. I just wonder how long this is going to happen for? So you readers out there try it especially you out of country readers try it with your broom and leave a comment if it worked or not.

Thank you Adoption Ark for bringing Logan into out lives. He is the greatest joy I have ever experienced in my life :0) I love watching him blossom into the great little boy he is.

So, Logan did great! After about 10 minutes he was all like OK Mom you can leave now :0) It broke my heart and made me very happy all at once. He was a BIT whiny and clingy when I first got there to pick him up. He didn't get to go outside today, things are a little hectic with his teacher being out for the first few weeks because of an emergency surgery. She is very upset about this and even started crying when telling us about it at parent open house last week. She is hoping to be back on Monday, we will see she had a pretty major operation.

Logan would not really talk to me after I got him out of the school. He was really upset. I will post more about that later as he is calling me to come and play. I have to say It was sad and hard leaving him but it was really nice to be able to run around by myself :0).

Here's some pics of the first morning by himself.

1st Day of Preschool~

How cute is my little guy

We had to make a "ME" board, it turned out OK. I am not the craftiest person but I think it looks good! Logan went through and picked out pics with me and decided what stickers he wanted on it after the pic's and labels were in place.

Logan attended his first day today. I went with him, it was for only an hour so he could meet his teacher and get a feel for his classroom and what is expected from him when he first arrives. I think he is really going to like it:0) We will see how Wednesday goes when I try to leave. He was really excited this morning and did great getting ready to leave the house. I have been preparing him for this for the last month by talking about what is going to happen, and we have checked out several books on the first day of school. I could tell last night he was getting a little anxious about it so we talked about how he was feeling. I told him it was OK and all of the kids are feeling the same as him. He said he was a little scared and nervous but also excited. I told him I felt the same but I know he will love it and make lots of new friends:0)

To be continued until Wednesday~

We went up to Mackinaw City and then did a day trip to the UP one day. We were gone for 4 days and we had a wonderful time. The weather could not have been any better for us. I found a WONDERFUL hotel that we will stay at every time we go up now. Logan even said it was his favorite hotel ever and if we go back he wants to stay there again. If you plan to visit the area I really suggest this place, fairly inexpensive, free hot breakfast, waterpark, on the beach with a balcony that overlooks Mackinac Island and the bridge, heaven :0)

We met some really nice people and Logan made some new friends like he always does. We did not go to the island this year, not much to do for Logan yet and there was plenty to do in the city. We had plans to go here but Logan was not tall enough to do anything yet. You have to be 48 inches and he is only 44. We will go back in a few years to do all they have to offer.

We traveled to the UP one day and hit the Mystery Spot, Castle Rock and a Deer Ranch. All places were a lot of fun for all of us. I couldn't do the Mystery Spot because it made me really dizzy, it really through my balance off. The guys did it and they both thought it was really cool. I did the first room and had to leave with another lady. the climb to Castle Rock was definitely a work out so we took a short break on the way up :0) The deer ranch was fun also but I felt bad for the deer not being able to run free but they have a good life of Carrots and Crackers all day from us tourist:0) Being able to pet a deer was very cool, I thought the white ones were more soft but the owner told me that they are the same. I am still not sure if I agree with him :0)

Any ways, we had a great trip and I can't wait to go back in a few years to do the Zip line :0) Now the grind starts. We have Logan's Preschool open house tomorrow night for us parents, then on Monday morning him and I go together for his meet the teacher for an hour and then he will start going on Wednesday the 16th by himself. He is going to go 3 days a week for 3 hours and he is pretty excited about it. I am excited to have a few hours a weeks to get things done without dragging the poor guy on my errands.
