Brooklyn's first day...

Brooklyn started Mother's Day Out today. She is going to the same school she went last year, only she'll be going MWF instead of T/Th. She knows a few kids in her class and has already made some new friends too. She had a good time at school and excited to go back.

First day of Kindergarten

WOW! I can't believe Barrett started Kindergarten. I woke him up for his first day of school and he said"Why are you waking me up so early?" I said"Its your first day of school and its time to get up."And Barrett said" Oh brother, this is early!"
He was so excited. He got right up, got dressed and ate breakfast. We got to school and he went right in the room and put his stuff away and started playing with some puzzles. He was ready for the day to begin. When I picked him up, he said he loved school and that his day was "AWESOME!" He made friends, liked playing outside and is excited to go back. We went to get milkshakes at P.Terry's after school to celebrate his first day. I am so happy that he had a great day and hope that he continues to love school and have a great year.

Brooklyn turns 3

It is hard to believe that Brooklyn is 3. Where does the time go? She is a fun, spirited, and loving girl. And she is all about princesses and pretending. She also loves to color and paint and hang out with her brother. She is 3 going on 13. She is such a joy to us! We had a mermaid party at the park to celebrate her birthday. Happy Birthday sweet girl!

Out and About

We've had a few relaxing weekends together as a family. Two weekends ago, we had planned to go canoeing, but Derek hurt his leg, so we ended up spending the morning in the ER so he could get fixed up. He sprained it playing basketball. After our ER trip, we went to our favorite pizza joint, Home Slice and then Hey Cupcake for dessert. Derek and I also went on a date to Uchi, one of our favorite date places and then on to yummy dessert at Eddie V.'s. So good and such a fun time together. This past weekend we went swimming and to dinner at our friend's house. On Saturday, we ate pancakes and nutella and then went canoeing on LadyBird Lake. After our lake time, we went to lunch at P. Terry's. We've also been hanging out in our new home and settling in. It was a relaxing weekend and fun time for us to be together.
Here are some pictures of our weekend fun!
