What's all the Excitement About?

Before school starts
 Class of 2026
They had their very own table, the rest of their siblings had to sit at another table.
Mr & Mrs. B. hosted a perfect summertime party...bbq'd hamburgers and hotdogs, all the fixings, beans, chips, and of course, homemade ice cream!
 Playing in the host's very special playhouse
 Cupcakes for all!
 The night before her big day
Can you say sparkly eyes?

Going out to the All School Assembly
 With the Seniors behind them




Miss K. is Aaron's new Teacher.  She is also a dear friend. Both of her parents are my father's first cousin, so we share a lot of cousins. She even occasionally reminds me of my great aunts =)  But our closest connection is that she used to come babysit for me when I worked a little in David's office.  She is even best friends with another of my former babysitter/friends/cousin on my mom's side.  I love them both and I think this is my only picture of both of them.  Well maybe not, we've had some crazy bake cookie parties over the years =)  Love you guys!   
 no picture, sorry. Parents know that schedules are good.  We are so thankful that our little school is an option for us here in CA.  It is easy to take it for granted.  Did you know that my husband was the first graduate there?  He was the single 8th grade graduate the 2nd year out.  I graduated from there, taught there, and am now in my 5th year as a parent.  All but 9 yrs of my life have included this school.  To God be the Glory.  To the teachers, we pray daily that God would give you patience and wisdom. 
No, Stephen didn't think too highly of it. Day 2, he fussed and did NOT want me to get him out of his carseat after we came home from dropping the children off at school (pushed my hand away from the buckle =).  Did he think maybe we were heading right back to get them? He's adjusting well, plays by himself rather happily, stands at the window watching things for a long time and is always always cheered up by the offer of a laundry basket and our work together song...sung to the tune of "When we all get together"
When we all work together,
work together, work together
When we all work together,
How happy we'll be
When your work is my work
And our work is God's work
When we all work together,
How happy we'll be. 
Together we carry the empty or full laundry baskets to their appropriate destination (we have a long hall) and he smiles the whole way!  Try it with your toddler today =)
