Clean Up!

Emily and Allie left their toothbrushes and toothpaste and other random items all over the bathroom counter. I just told them to go upstairs and pick up the bathroom counter. Allie (4) replied "How are we suppose to lift up the counter? It's WAAAY to heavy!" Little stink! Just put your stuff away. :)

Hammock Fun

The hammock in our backyard is one of our favorite places to just chill. It is great for Sunday naps or just relaxing while watching the older kiddos, although they all usually end up in the hammock with us.
Maya was enjoying her time in the hammock.

Fire Station Field Trip

Allie had her first field trip today. We went to the fire station just down the street from our house. Ty was able to come with us.
Josh and Ty practicing their STOP, DROP AND ROLL skills.
Learning about the big firetrucks.
Checking out the inside of the truck.
Joshua loved all the firetrucks.
What a cutie!
Junior firefighters. Fun field trip for all, but I think Joshua enjoyed it the most.

Emily starts 1st grade

Every parent asks the question "Where has time gone?" and I am no different. Can my little girl really be in 1st grade?
She is so excited to start 1st grade since according to her "Kindergarten was way too easy".
Time to go!
Emily's desk. She's hoping she gets to sit by some cute boys.
She loved the 1st day of school and Allie really likes riding her bike to pick Emily up from school.

Captain Josh

Joshua is such a funny kid. He is usually sporting his Woody cowboy hat but today he switched it up a bit.
What a cute little kid. Love his personality.

Dad Pea's his pants

We had some peas with our dinner tonight. Tyler had to get up from the table for a second and when he sat back down Emily whispered in my ear and started to laugh. Tyler asked what was so funny. I told him Emily put a pea on his chair and he just sat on it. Then Emily pipes up and says "dad pea'd his pants". She thought she was so funny. And I have to admit, I think she was.

Good Morning!

Really? I don't know if there is anything better to wake up to than a happy little baby with the biggest smile. Love seeing this little face every morning.

Allie Starts Preschool 2011

Allie has been looking forward to this day for sooo long! First day of big kid preschool- as she calls it. Meaning the one that mom and the neighbor moms aren't in charge of.

Allie is going to the same preschool that Emily went to when she was 4. This year her teacher is doing an advanced class where they focus more on reading. Which we felt was a good thing for Allie since she is already reading on a 2nd grade level and we thought that that would be a little better for her than just learning letters. We don't want her to be too bored. Smart little stink!

This year we are just hoping for Allie to develop better social skills and to bridge the gap between her emotional and intellectual development.
Can you tell she is excited??

Here we go!
And she is off.  Here's to hoping for a great school year.
