The First Day of School

The first day of school this year was especially hard for me. My last little baby started off to school yesterday, meanwhile my first born went into seventh grade and made the football team. It all seems so unbelievable!!!

Joseph has been so excited about playing football for almost two years now. I can't seem to wrap my head around my baby being old enough to play football.
My Katie, isn't she beautiful. She is in fourth grade this year and is very excited to be able to switch classes every period. She feels very grown up now.

This one is just absolutely breaking my heart. It has been such a joy to be home with her these last three years. I can't believe that she has already started school.
When I dropped them off I was so distraught to have lost my daytime pals. The reality of just how fast they really grow sets in more and more each year. The first day of Pre-K is always the hardest. We think that we are losing our babies, when really we are just loaning our friends for a few hours.
All summer I thought about how I couldn't wait for school to start, and now two days into it, I can't wait for them to be home again.
AHHHHH, the joys of parenthood,
we grow as they grow!

Relaxing Weekend!!!

We went to Lubbock and spent a very relaxing weekend with some really close friends of ours - Chris & Emily and their wonderful kids. We just sat around and visited and bar-b-qued. Gary went golfing for the first time ever, he absolutely loved it.
It was a great weekend.

My dad came into town this last week with my niece and nephew (Daryl and Sara). It was nice to be able to see them again......
They have grown so much, it is so hard to believe that Daryl is already 17. They are great kids!

Although I am glad to have my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them with us this last week. They have such wonderful personalities. They are both taller than just about everyone I know. Daryl just soars over everyone...LOL
We are going to miss them a lot. Hopefully we will see them again soon......
