First Day of Kindergarten

Owen started Kindergarten on August 27th.  He was so excited to go and start on his educational journey.  We all walked him up to school together and walked him to his classroom with Mrs. Dailey and Ms. Byars.  I got a little choked up when dropping him off but it was a combo of excitement and sadness that he is growing up so fast.  We are excited for the school year and the excitement that it will bring.

Vacation - Week 2

Week 2 wasn't quite as pretty as week 1 but it was just as much fun.  Our friends the Van Berkels joined us for the weekend.  I think their day 1 was the best day for them.  It was kinda rainy week but we made the most of it.

Vacation - Week 1

Ahhh vacation!  Both Andy and I were so ready for a vacation.  We had both been working a lot on proposals and other work activities - so we were both in need of a break.  We were doing two weeks in the Outer Banks in North Carolina, which is fabulous.  We go down to Avon, which is on Hatteras Island.  If you are looking for a quiet place to vacation, this is the place - if Spring Break party is what you want - you may prefer another location.

Happy 6th Birthday Owen!

I can't believe it has been 6 years since Owen was born.  They say time flies and it really does.  I remember like it was last month that Owen was so teeny tiny and now he is a BIG BOY.  We had is school physical and he was 48 and 1/2 inches tall and weighing in at 59 lbs.  He is one solid boy - I think he will be taller than me by 4th grade (it isn't saying much).  He goes to kindergarten this year and he is beyond excited. for his birthday we celebrated by going to a Nationals game the Sunday before.  He got to bring a friend with him to the game.  Sam and his dad joined us.

Aaron's first haircut

We finally took Aaron to get his first hair cut.  I was really sad because that meant he is moving past being a baby to becoming a little boy.  I know it is a rite of passage but it still is sad.  He really wasn't into the whole thing much like Eli.  He had to sit on my lap in order to have his hair cut.  He was really good and cooperated fairly well. 

Handsome boy!
