Addison: First Day of 1st Grade

Summer flew by and now it's time to start 1st Grade.  Addison loves school - structure, learning, friends, specials classes.  After her first day of school she said her favorite class was music.  It was almost harder for me to watch her leave me.  That meant that summer was over and I would only have a few days with her every day and not all  day.  I miss her already, but I know she's soaking it up and loves school.  We have been blessed with her excitement to learn.  We pray that this year will be full of fun, learning, laughter, kindness, and overall love for life.

Mode of transportation to school - golf cart.  What happened to walking in the snow 3 miles? 

Little Gymnist

Landry had her first class of gymnastics on Monday.  To say that she loves it is an understatement.  Jordan and I are excited that she has found something she really likes.  As parents though, we have already discussed not doing competitive gymnastics and just letting her enjoy having fun and no making our lives all about gymnastics.  It's so fun to watch her during her class.  You can tell she's really into it and randomly looks your way to see if you're watching her.

Finishing Up Summer

 What do you do when it's 105 degrees outside?  Go to Target and walk slowly while eating popcorn.

 Jordan and I are making an effort to try to spend more one on one time with each of the girls.  Well Addison got to go first.  Landry went to spend time with Gingy and Coach and we got Addison for the day.  Here's what Addison chose to for agenda:

1.  Eat lunch at Chiloso
2.  Go school clothes shopping
3.  Get a pedicure
4.  Eat pizza a Paleo's and get ice cream

We are so proud of her!  We love you big girl!

 Jordan and I had a whole week to ourselves while the girls split time with grandparents, so we made a trip to George W. Bush Library
 Time on the farm
 Cabinet project - fabric in the back 
 Finally finished bedding for our bedroom
 Because we never take selfies.  Love this man.  It felt like good ole college days - hanging out on the couch with no plans.
What do you do when it's dark outside and you can't see your corn hole boards?  It take them up to the new bocce ball courts. 
Last Friday before school starts.  Oh how they've grown since we moved here in December.
