ANOTHER lost tooth?!?!

Yes, and by the same girly, Anna :)  She has now lost 3 teeth and her sisters have lost none.  I don't know what's up with her teeth - Ha! ;)

She lost today's tooth while at school.  I am sure that was exciting for her.  It was the first thing I heard as she, her sisters and brother came out from school..."mama, guess what?  i lost my loose tooth!  at school!!!"  Her teacher put it in a little baggie for her.

Anna and her 3rd loose tooth (holding it in the baggie; I circled it :) )
She was very proud of it! :)

The tooth fairy has been busy at our house these summer months...and all the while just with Anna ;D

Back to School! Jared's First Day of 4th Grade!

Oh, my boy!  I can't believe he is in 4th grade!  He gets bigger and bigger every second!  He is excited to be back.  He teacher, Miss A, is really nice and I know is a great fit for him!  He already has some old friends in his class too.

Here are pictures of his first day! :)

I told the kids they could pick out their favorite cereal for the first day of school. Jared chose Lucky Charms ;)  Eh, it gives him some sugar energy for playground time at school :D
Making his own lunch - YAY! :D
Jared with his sisters, ready for our walk to school
My big and sweet 4th grader!  Love him!! :)
At school
He found some of his friends, Will and Creighton
The 4th grade classes
The bell rang!  All ready to go in to school and learn!
I told him to keep an eye out for his sisters.  He happens to have lunch right before them so maybe their paths with cross :)

Praying his has a great first day of 4th!  I can't wait to hear about it!

Back to School! Suzan's, Anna's, Bethany's and Brielle's First Day of Kindergarten!

We are here.  I can't believe this day has come!  I feel like they were just little "baby blobs" or toddlers toddling around.  Now our girlies are off to school!  Kindergarten!  To say they were excited for today is an understatement ;)  I don't know if they really slept last evening ;)

Here are some pics of Suzan's, Anna's, Bethany's and Brielle's first day of Kindergarten!

Their backpacks, all ready to go!
Their water bottles and lunch bags all out
I told the kids they could pick out their favorite cereal for the first day of school.  Anna and Suzan chose Trix ;)

My little baby girls are in school!  Gone all day!  Man, does our house sound and feel quiet.  Alone ;)

Our Summer - Day 53

Yes, today is our last day of summer break.  We had a great summer!  Lots of fun, adventure, friends made, relaxation, "first times" and much more.  Now, the kids go back to school.  For the girls, they start Kindergarten!  A first step on their path to graduating high school in 2026 ;)  My, oh my!  Jared's in 4th and only has 3 years left of elementary.  Goodness!

Already? Only one more "sleep" until Kindergarten!  It feels like the other day that we made that long countdown chain and now we are down to ONE!  The girlies are SUPER, SUPER excited. I wonder if they will sleep any tonight ;D
An after-dinner treat for us, on our last day of summer break :D  Suzan, Brielle, Jared
Bethany and Anna
Tomorrow...pictures of their first day of 4th grade and Kindergarten!  I need to go and pack some tissues in my shorts pockets for tomorrow!  Or maybe just bring the entire box?! ;D

Our Summer - Day 51

Our last Friday before school starts. We took a trip to the library :)
Not much (or really anything) planned for our last weekend before school starts.  We'll just hang out and get the kids ready for their first day.

I still can't believe the girlies will be starting Kinder!  I was just playing with them this evening after bathtime, "rocking" them in my arms thinking "man, weren't you just wee little babies?!?!"  Now, they are 5 and starting their "big kid" school years!  And how is Jared a 4th grader?  I remember making good, long-time friends (whom I still keep in contact with) in 4th grade.  Now, my son is in 4th?  Yup, I feel old - Ha! ;D
