the first day & my accent {or whatever you wanna call it}.

adam & i waved good-bye to the kids this morning around 7:25 as they boarded the school bus.

{not the greatest picture, but you get the idea}

first day at a new school.
first day riding the bus...again.
first day of malia's last year of elementary school.

adam buzzed aidan's head last night. clearly, he looks like a different boy from the one pictured in yesterday's blog post. {for the record: i prefer buzz cut aidan over crazy hair aidan. he just looks so much more mature.}

seeing the kids get on the bus this morning was bittersweet. they're growing up so fast. so, so fast.

okay, enough about me wah-wah-wah-ing about my kidlets & their first day of school, how about my first ever vlog. it's a good time. promise.

as promised...my accent vlog:




just to be fair, i'll post the "directions:"

say these words: aunt, route, wash, oil, theater, iron, salmon, caramel, fire, water, sure, data, ruin, crayon, toilet, new orleans, pecan, both, again, probably, spitting image, alabama, lawyer, coupon, mayonnaise, syrup, pajamas & caught

answer these questions:
what is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
what is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a pall?
what is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
what do you call gym shoes?
what do you say to address a group of people?
what do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
what do you call your grandparents?
what do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
what do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
what is the thing you use to change the tv channel?

what do you think? do i sound funny to you? the video quality isn't the greatest. the lighting was weird, it was blurry, and i say "and" and "um" and "so" a lot. ha ha!

but, there you have it. me & my voice.

oh, and the hair? good thing you can't see the grays. they are out of control. i'm seriously thinking of chopping it all off...soon.

Hey Shell. Good to hear your voice. I so understand how bittersweet it was to send the kids to school. I am a little sad, because mine are all gone. Boo-hoo. Aidan does look quite mature without the hair. Talk about transformation.

Oh and that vblog is great. How did you come about that? Something I might start doing soon. Just relocated and haven't found a place to hang my hat yet. We are looking...fervently!! Hope the first day went well for the kiddos.

love the video! You do sound a little southern with the 'y'all'! Neat idea though; I may do it myself while the kids are in school next week.
