Week 34

I had a fun little session in the mountains with my kiddos.

Watching the rain fall outside…

I took one of Pax too. Then he got mad that I was taking a picture of him and he hid from me. 

I love when they play together! 

Then there might have been some jumping on the bed in mommy and daddy's room. Shhhh….

We decided to eat the last of the popsicles. Summer is over. =(

Alexis started Fall Soccer! Cory is coaching. It should be a fun season.

Week 33

A lot of firsts going on around here….

Alexis had her first day of KINDERGARTEN!! Oh my goodness was I an emotional wreck. She was really excited to go to "the big school" so I tried to keep my tears hidden so I wouldn't worry her. But as she lined up with her classmates, with their big backpacks on and marched into the classroom I just couldn't hold it back anymore and out poured the mommy tears. I hope she has a fantastic year!

Alexis' teacher gave us these 2 heart stickers at open house- one to give to the kiddo and one for mom to wear. If we miss each other we are supposed to hug it and it will make us feel better. This was very important to Alexis, so we wore our hearts. After school she told me she had to hug it a few times. =)

And here are some super cute little brothers at Kindergarten drop-off! I'm so happy that there are so many friends in her class. Hopefully it will make the transition easier!

I couldn't wait to pick her up and hear all about her first day. She came walking out of that classroom with the biggest smile on her face and all my nerves were calmed. I knew she had a rockin good day!

The night before Paxton's big day- we read him this book!

Paxton's first day of PRESCHOOL!! We weren't really sure how it would go. This is his first time doing anything like this. But he did great! When we said bye he just waved and smiled and went back to playing. Phew….

Wow! I feel like we have reached a new stage in our lives- both kiddos in school! I have Tuesday and Thursday mornings all to MYSELF! I'm thinking I will spend those few hours at a coffee shop- doing absolutely nothing. =)

Week 32

Super-moon! I attempted a moon shot last year and I failed miserably. But now I have a zoom lens and it turned out much better! Always a fun one to add to the project.

Our cousins from Idaho are visiting and we spent the entire day with them! We just love when they come into town. Their kids are my kids' same ages so it works out really well. Everyone had a great time!

I did a session with my kids and my parents. I think it is so important to have pictures like this as my kids grow up. I'm hoping we can make this a yearly thing- especially as more grandkids get added to the mix. I know my mom will cherish these photos forever.

Aren't my parents cute? They got married right out of high school and have been married for 34 years now! They are a wonderful role-model for what true love is. I love them and I love watching them love my kiddos.
