Hello 3rd Grade, Hello 1st Grade

Friday, September 8, 2017

Grayden and Sadler had their first day of school on Tuesday!

Lord, give them eyes to see the needs of others around them, hearts to know your deep love for them, minds to learn all that's required of them, and courage knowing you are always with them.

after school snack :)

Labor Day Weekend

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!

Saturday morning the boys went to work with Robb for a bit, then followed that up with some time playing in the pond, and hunting for frogs! 

We made personal mini pizzas during half time of the Michigan game.

We all had fun giving Jovie a pedicure!

We went to the pool on Sunday, but it was a little chilly, so the kids mostly played with Perler beads! Which was perfect, because then I had lots of time to read the latest book I can't put down, "Lilac Girls"

Later in the afternoon we went to the Whitecaps game. 
We all had so much fun! 
Robb and I can't remember the last time we made it through a whole game, even stayed for the fireworks, and the kids ran the bases at the end!
We were so impressed! 

Monday was the annual Truck Parade. 

And "back to school scavenger hunt" with Grandma and Grandpa!

What a great way to wrap up our Summer!
