Changing looks

I was looking through pictures on my computer and came across this...

Olivia wearing a blanket cape (no shirt!), jeans and her shoes on her hands ;)  Her smile was missing teeth for months! That picture was taken in January 2012 when Mom and Dad were getting ready to move into their new house.  Not that long ago...  

This is her now.

She has grown up so much in the last year and a half.  Her front teeth finally came in, her hair is shorter and her legs are even longer!

Why do they have to grow up so fast?!

Make it stop!

First Day of School

I'm baaaack!  Miss me?

Where did summer go?  I must admit, I was a bit worried about how this summer was going to go.  Would the kids be bored?  Would they constantly fight?   Would the house be a crazy mess?  How would I keep them busy?  It was actually a really good summer!  I decided right away that I wasn't going to plan a bunch of activities.  I knew that my kids just wanted to play, swim, stay up late, and sleep in.  So that is what we did!  Typing up blog posts was not the first thing on my mind.  It was nice to take a break.  But, I am back now.  Maybe I can even start posting on a regular basis... we will see!

It will take me a bit to get back on track with what has been going on here in Texas.  Let's start with school.

The teachers visit each students home to introduce themselves.  We patiently wait by the door to see who walks up our driveway, fingers crossed that it is a good teacher ;-)  The next day, we head up to school to find their classrooms.

This year was a pretty easy transition because Ella has the same teacher Olivia and Caleb had in First Grade...  

and Olivia has the same teacher Caleb had last year in Third Grade.

Caleb will have the biggest change this year as his Fourth Grade classroom in now upstairs (this is a big deal for the kids) and he will rotate between two teachers!

Monday was the first day of school!

I took this picture with my cell phone.  Not the best quality, but I wanted to capture the kids walking into school with Papa.  

So far, so good.  Soon homework will start and the nights will get busier.  I guess I better appreciate these few days off!
