2013-2014 MDO Begins

My eyes tear up every semester the girls start their first day back.  They are growing up so fast.  I can remember each one of their very first days at a MDO program.  They both cried and cried for weeks.  What a different story it is now.  Addison walked right into her class and had a note on her folder from the day saying she was smiley all day.  Love it.  Landry's report was good also.  They said she cried just for a bit and then was sweet all day.  That makes this momma happy.  The MDO program they are attending has been great for them in so many ways (i.e. social, mental, etc.).  I love how they learn about the Bible while getting ready for Kindergarten.  I know that learning about both will help equip them for the world ahead.  May God bless and protect our girls and their teachers in this year of MDO.

Momma didn't get dressed up for the first day, because I painted our master bedroom for the next 8 1/2 hours.  Pics to come soon.  Love these girls to pieces.

Football Season

Football season has begun and I don't anyone more excited than Jordan.  He loves to take the girls to the football stadium close to our house every year.  The girls love it, especially the band.  It was so cute to watch them enjoy the game this year.  They understand more and more each year.  Addison can still remember the mascots from the teams we watched last year.  I think the band is more interesting to Addison and the football for Landry.  I know Jordan loves the games and would love to be a part of the game, but it makes Momma happy that he's home on the weekends during football season.  I can't imagine parenting through a football season.  God bless all coaches wives.  They have a special patience that you need to survive.

Pioneer Days 2013

Our little family made the annual New Boston Pioneer Days again this year.  The weather was absolutely perfect.  We couldn't have asked for a better weekend to be outside.  I think the only time we were inside was to sleep.  Jordan and I love to go to New Boston to relax a little and get away from the big city and the girls just love everything about it, which makes me smile.  Their grandparents and great grandparents are head over heels in love with them and treat them like princesses.  God is good and we are blessed as a family.

Papa has been working on a tree house for the grandchildren.  The last time they were in New Boston he had the house part but now he has added on.  The tree house now has a swing.  When I say swing, I mean a fancy swing.  I asked him if he had plans to go by.  His response was the he found what he wanted to do on the internet and just came up with the plans in his head.  Go Papa!!!
