The Countdown To Kindergarten Already Has Me In Tears

Field Day. Field Day, really?!? Field day is going to make me cry? Apparently so...

Wednesday was Carsyn's final field day as a preschooler at Settle Memorial Preschool. To be honest, I'd forgotten all about it until late last night. I had signed up to volunteer, so I thought I was prepared for a morning filled with potato-sack races, inflatable bowling and hotdogs. Turns out, I wasn't prepared at all for the tears I'd be fighting back in the create-a-mask room.

Dave Spencer Shares Old Color Family Photos That Are Really Black-and-Whites

Growing up, there were pictures all over the walls of our house that always appeared to me to be color photographs, even if the color didn't look the same as the type of color you'd see in your average snapshot.

Carsyn’s Preschool Mother’s Day Gift Is Perfect! [PHOTO]

I love the projects and artwork Carsyn brings home from preschool. I love seeing her vision, even thou she normally has to explain to me what it is, ha! I was really excited to see what she's been working on at school for Mother's Day, because she has been talking about it for a while now.

Yesterday, after her Spring Musical at Settle, she couldn't wait to give her gift to me. Now, I love everything she gives me, but this gift was extra special. I love it!

I Got To Feed A Rhino! Meet Mechi! [VIDEO]

Thanks to our friends at Mesker Park Zoo in Evansville, several of us DJ's were treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the park. One of my favorite things we were able to see and do was meet Mechi. She's a 3500 pound rhinoceros at the zoo and we had some major interaction with her! Carsyn was able to go along on the trip and to the surprise of all of us... we were able to feed her! What an experience, right?!?

Here's some video of Carsyn and I, along with Eric Cornish of WKDQ, Bobby G of WGBF and Ryan O'Bryan of KISSFM. We had a blast! Oh...none of us were prepared for how she'd take the food from our hands... SO cool!

My Drive-In Party Foul

Like I told y'all on Friday, Carsyn and I had plans to go to the Holiday Drive-In in Rockport Friday night to see Rio 2. (I can't lie, I was just excited as she was to see the movie, ha!) I loooove the drive-in and knew Carsyn would love it, too.

So, we got there early (don't anyone pass out that I got somewhere ahead of time, ha), got a nice assortment of snacks from the concession stand and sat up camp in the car for the show. It was chilly Friday night, so I brought some pillows and blankets and we just sat in the back of my SUV. Speaking of my vehicle, I've only had it since October. Ok, maybe that's plenty of time to figure out all of the buttons, but apparently I hadn't ever needed to control the interior lights.

I committed a major drive-in party foul....
