LA Fishing

We spent the afternoon fishing at a family friends' pond.  The children loved it, because the fish were biting like crazy.  It seemed like every time they casted, a fish was on the line immediately.  This wasn't fishing.  It was catching.  All three kids loved it!

First Day of School

My boys are off to school!

Reed was so excited to start Kindergarten, and he couldn't wait to get to Old Union.

Ryland was a bit more reserved about getting a new school year started.  I think he knows it means early mornings are upon us.

Reed poses with Ms. Hill before he finds his seat to start the day.

He was all smiles as he dives into his new can of Play-Doh.  I love his enthusiasm!

Ryland takes a quick picture with Mrs. Astrin, and I can tell by his body language that he is nervous.

By the time he sits down at his new desk and finds his worksheet, Ryland has teared up and wants to go home.  I get it sweetie, but I promise you will be OK in an hour.  Hang in there my sensitive boy.

Watching Planes

Another Summer bucket list item was checked off this afternoon.  We had a picnic at Founders Plaza and watched the planes land and take off at DFW Airport.  

Bad Moms Movie

Hilarious movie!  It was a different night of movie fun for me.  Bad Moms was too funny and was interesting as I prepare for the upcoming year on PTO.  Fingers crossed the year is less entertaining.

First Ballet Class

I have been waiting for years to see my little girl start dance.  I think even before Ridley was born, I had dreamed of this day.  She had a great experience and was very excited.

I asked her to smile for a picture, and she gave me this adorable grin.

I did catch a sweet little pose with an angelic smile.

Happy 10 Years

John Chris and I have been married 10 years.  I spent the entire day and whole weekend in the bed with strep throat.  Not exactly what we had planned, but my sweet hubby brought me gorgeous roses.

Active Sports Camp

Another year of fun at Active Sports Camp for the boys.  This is one of their favorite summer traditions, and they always ask to go.  Worship and lots of sports!  Perfection!

It is a rare moment to catch Ridley napping.  She is full of energy and not going to miss a minute of the fun with her brothers.  I convinced her to rest in my bed and watch some cartoons.  She quickly fell fast asleep.
