Poor little Dargan has had a rough week. This week was his first week of going to school for 3 days. He's gotten pretty spoiled from hanging around the house with Will & I so much lately. When I think back to when Will was 2 years old, he went to sleep every night at 6 pm like clockwork. He was such an "angel baby" and was so scheduled. He would sleep for 12 straight hours and never wake me unless he was sick. He's still that way most of the time. Dargan on the other hand is quite a handful! He needs to get 12 hours of sleep, but he won't let himself. He wants so bad to stay up with Will and doesn't want to miss out on anything. I thought this picture of Dargan and his TeeChop was cute...It's so funny how much Will & Dargan love their two little lambs.
This past weekend we visited the Pitt Street Bridge in the Old Village of Mt. Pleasant. Will was so excited to show me the exact spot where he caught his first fish, "A dogfish Mommy." The boys had a great time climbing all over the bridge and nearby rocks. I think Dargan's favorite part of the trip was getting to pet so many doggies of various shapes and sizes.
Will scored his first goal in soccer this past weekend!!! He nearly scored 2 more, but just missed the goal by a few feet. Daddy and I were so proud of him to say the least. Rusty gave me a hard time for not getting the action on video, but oh well, who's perfect, right? Who knew Will would be such a soccer star????
Dargan was ready to get out there and chase that ball! It drove him crazy to stand by on the sidelines. I feel sure we have a future soccer star on our hands with this little boy. I mean he has always loved balls. One of his first words was "ball". Give Dargan a ball and he's happy.....
We all went over to Big Brother's buddy Matthew's house for a pumpkin painting playdate. BB & Matthew had a great time painting their pumpkins while Little Brother chased the cats all over the house. LB is fascinated with cats for some odd reason....We all enjoyed lots of yummy treats while we caught up with friends. We had so much fun I had to drag the boys away at 6:30 pm. Now that's what you call a fun playdate....

Will and Edwin
Dargan and Kate
Will, Edwin & Eliza
Will and Dargan love spending time with their cousins in Darlington. Will & Edwin have always been the best of friends. Will and Edwin are a year and 1/2 apart in age, but they have always gotten along great!!! Dargan is just getting to know his cousin Kate. She's quite the little cutie, isn't she? And quite the ham too as you can tell from these pictures. Cousin Eliza is a lot of fun too and such a "girlie" girl with her purses and bows. We will all be together again at my Mom's house in Hendersonville the weekend of October 24-26. Eventhough it won't be Halloween just yet, I'm sure the kids will be decked out in costumes anyway...
My boys love their playhouse in the backyard. Little Brother likes to go inside and pretend to talk on the phone and peep his little cute head out at me through the windows. While Big Brother's favorite thing to do is to sit or stand on top of the roof. I have told him a million times not to stand on the roof, but I eventually just gave up. Will also likes to crawl up on the roof and talk to the neighbors from over the fence. I know it's dangerous, but what can you do with boys????
