Where I've Been

I know, I know, it has been forever since I've been a blogger. Here is a little glimpse of what we've been up to. I don't want to forget these moments that fly by so quickly.

New Year's Day at Grammy and Pappy's

Hanging out with Nate

Abby lost her first tooth

The kids spent a week with Grandma, Grandpa and their cousins

Isaac learned to ride his tricycle

Wading in the creek and catching crawdads

At the park

Grandpa is the Lego King

Hidden in the treehouse

Catching tadpoles

Polly Pockets and Barbies in the treehouse

Taking a hike

Building a birdhouse

Abby turned 7

Hanging out with my sister and brothers!

Our annual CNC picnic and camp out

We got a dog

We got some seeds

We planted a garden

Our garden grew

My baby grew

Isaac turned 2

Ella turned 5

Caleb turned 9

Mother's Day

Caleb's field day

Abby finished 1st grade

Easter Sunday

And that's just a little of where we've been.

My Kindergarten Girl

My baby girl started kindergarten today. She catches the bus an hour later than Caleb and Abby and is home by lunch time. She was so excited this morning. We went and got her shots yesterday (4 shots 0 tears) and her leg was a little sore, but that didn't stop her from showing off her beautiful smile! Here she is with her BIG backpack.

Saying good-bye to Isaac. (This was one of MANY hugs)

Back to School

Back to alarm clocks, busy mornings, homework and backpacks. We sure enjoyed our lazy summer mornings but are ready for a change of pace. Caleb and Abby are really excited to see their friends. They got to meet their teachers yesterday and saw their new classrooms. It was a little chilly this morning so they didn't want pictures taken but we did get a few. Caleb is in 3rd grade and Abby starts 2nd. Ready or not here they come!
