Milestones. They are bitter-sweet. This past week Luke started preschool. It is at our church and is called Mother's Morning Out. But it is actually preschool and is supposed to be one of the best in our area. He had his little backpack and lunch bag that looks like a basketball. Now while we were getting ready that morning he was pitching a fit about everything. But when we got in the car to go he was fine. Micah and I both went. We walked him to his room (it is the room he has been in for the last several months at church) and he got his yellow chair (and trust me it has to be yellow), gave us a kiss and was good to go. When Micah picked him up (cause mama was at work) the teacher said he was good. She said he didn't like all the transitions at first (big surprise) but by mid-morning he was fine. He even used the potty at school! (This is big due to the fact that he doesn't use it anywhere. He held it all the way to and from Gulf Shores!!) He had a great time and mama and daddy didn't even get the least bit upset. He was happy to be there and I was happy for him to go! He just loves class these days.
Seth will turn 1 on Wednesday the 13th. My lazy little biscuit isn't walking yet. Not even stepping yet. He could absolutely care less. He thinks he keeps up with Luke just fine the way he is. Fortunately cool weather is coming and he can have on long pants to protect those knees if he's gonna keep crawling!
I am working every Friday right now, and will do that for another month. Andrea will come back from her maternity leave mid October I think. I started working a 3-11 shift this weekend at an assisted living home. It is boring as sin, but it's ok for now. We will have to see if it is worth the gas money to drive over there. I'll give it at least a month or so to make a decision. I'm just doing it to make a little extra money.
That's about it for now. I've actually made time to read lately and "Taking Care of the ME in Mommy" by Lisa Whelchel (Blair on Facts of Life) is a really good read for all Mama's. Especially the stay at home ones. I highly recommend it. It is a Christian based book. Next up is probably a Beth Moore book. My friend Brandy and I hope to go see her this time next year in Nashville for a girls' weekend!

Because I love to blog so much, it is hard for me to stay away. And it really is easier for me to just put it all in one place because I can never remember what pictures I sent to whom. So this will be the little place I try to update everyone on what is going on in the life of the Tucker's. A lot has actually happened this summer. We went to Gulf Shores for a week and really enjoyed it. Seth didn't really like the ocean or the sand, but Luke loved going out with Daddy in the mornings and building in the sand while Seth napped. Luke actually started jumping off the side of the pool (big imporvement since he wouldn't even get IN anything other than a baby pool at the beginning of summer.) Seth cut another tooth while we were there bringing our total to 5. But another will probably join us by next week. He is still not walking, but he has stood up without help and is squatting down, so we will see. I'd like him taking steps by their party at the end of the month. Luke was running by now, so it is really hard not to compare. Luke starts preschool tomorrow at our church. He will go every Friday from 9:15-1:00. I hope he loves it as much as he loves Sunday school. Apparently he and another little boy born in October have made fast friends. I just met Parker's mom a couple of weeks ago but last night as we walked out of church Luke said "Hey, look! There's Parker." I commented to his mom about it and she said she knew who Luke was before we actually met each other. (I immediately wonder if Luke has been mean to him. But they are the same size, so they can probably duke it out and both come out ok. Even though I know that's not what's happening.)

I have been working every friday for the last 6 weeks and will continue to do so for 5 more at the drs office I used to work at full time. it has been a welcomed break. I consider my 11 hour work day a mini-vacation! I did decide to start working permanently one day a week at an assisted living facility. It is just one 8 hour shift a week and the extra money will be nice. Other than that, the only thing going on is staying busy with the kiddos. Micah worked all weekend putting together a new swingset/playhouse we got from Sam's. It is their birthday present, so chunky biscuit better get walking so he can enjoy it. I'll try to remember to take my camera tomorrow so I can have some pics and get those posted.

Also Cool
