Luke is 7!!!!

When I was pregnant for the first time, people gave me one piece of advice more than any other: "enjoy it, because it goes by so fast." 

I was naive and just thought, "oh old people, you're so funny." 

Well I blinked and went from this... 

...to this seven year old boy. 

Kate Starts MDO!

Kate started MDO today. While we loved where we went last year (Sonshine Academy at First Colleyville), this year I chose to put Kate in Kids at the Cross preschool. It's a little closer to home, the times are more convenient, and she's in class with her sweet cousins Harper and Carson! I was so impressed at Parent Orientation last week, and I think Kate will have a great year! 

Here she is this morning before school. 

She just had to color some Minions before we left. 

I wasn't able to get a picture of her at drop off because it was a mad house. She was a little whimpery when I left, but I snuck a look in the room a few minutes later and she was smiling and looking around. 

Her teacher texted me this picture several hours in...

and with this message: "Kate is so so so precious! We are having a really great first day! She warmed up real quick to all her friends and has had a lot of fun!" 

I'm really proud of her! She had a great day, and she even stayed still on her mat during rest/nap time. She was all smiles when I picked her up. I hope she fares as well on Thursday! 

Even though this girl makes me darn-near certifiably insane much of the time, I sure did miss my buddy today! I do know, however, that she is going to learn so much and make sweet friends! I'm so excited for my girl to have something that's just for her. :)

Summertime, 2015

Oh summer of 2015. How did we spend you?

We spent a lot of time in the car taking Luke to school (WoodallKids Academy).

First Day of the First Grade

I can hardly believe that my boy is in FIRST GRADE! 

As he does throughout the school year, Luke worked really hard this summer, attending BWF every day at least from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. every day. I took a picture of him at the start of summer and on his last day of Academy - his physical growth is evident, and I love his confident smile!
