1st day of school

It's hard to believe that summer is over and school is starting. This year Sadie is in 4th grade, Brinley is in 1st grade, and Hailey is starting preschool. Sadie and Brin had a really good 1st day of school and came home excited to tell me everything that happened. Sadie's teacher loves arts and crafts so sadie is in for a fun year. Brin loves being at school all day and loves her teacher Mrs. Thompson. She is growing up to fast. It was hard to send her off for the whole day. Hailey has had a few meltdowns the past couple of days because she misses her sisters. Hopefully when her school starts next week she won't be so sad! I do have to say that it is nice to have a little peace and quite and I am enjoying my time I have with Hailey. It's amazing how fast they grow up and all of the changes they go through.

We had another busy week. We are in full swing with Sadie's Cheerleading. She had Cheer camp for three days 5 hours a day. She came home very tired but loved every minute of it. They flew a coach in from Florida to teach them their new comp routine. He was really patient with the girls and they had lots of fun with him. Sadie is a base and has to hold a girl up into extension. I'm amazed that she is strong enough to do it!

The girls were very excited to find out who their new school teachers were. Sadie has Mrs. Gourley, Brinley has Mrs. Thompson, and Hailey is going to Mrs. Mindy for preschool. They are all really great teachers and the girls are excited to start a new school year. Sadie's teacher called the house and wanted to come over and meet Sadie. Sadie was excited to meet her and had a smile on her face when she told her she lets them paint ceramics if they do their home reading! She seems like a really nice teacher and it should be a great year. Brinley and Hailey were excited to find letters in the mail from their teachers.

Brinley was so excited to go with her Dad to pick up her teams soccer uniforms. She is so excited to have her Dad be her coach. She wanted to be #2 just like her dad wore when he played soccer. She went with him and picked out her pink soccer cleats and shin guards. She is officially ready to start soccer. She loves to put on her uniform and practice kicking her ball. (She is really wearing shorts in this picture but her shirt is really long!)

They ended the week playing spa with their friends. They cut up zucchini from the garden and put it over their eyes. They painted fingers and toes. Brin and Hailey loved it.

Catch up!!

Another birthday has come and gone! We had a fun day. Me and the girls went and saw Despicable Me and loved it. They spoiled me all day and that night Eric and I went out to dinner to the Texas Roadhouse while grandma tended the kids. They got me an apple pie and lit sparklers as my candles. (We used to to that when I was a kid!) They put so many in the fire alarm went off! I am getting old.

We went to the cabin one last time this summer and had a great time. We got caught in a storm during raspberry days and got poured on while we went through the booths! The wind was so strong it about blew us over! The girls were starting to have a panic attack and were very glad to get back to the car. We had lots of fun at the beach and trying out a new ez up ski. They loved it and didn't want to stop.
