First Day of Pre-K for Meredith

BIG day in the life of Meredith! Very first day of school, and girlfriend was ready.
Originally, we signed her up for school to help with shyness and independence. But over the last few months she has really matured in those areas and this morning marched excitedly to class with no hesitance. She has been asking for days when I was going to take her to school and finally leave her there. Meet the Teacher upset her, she wanted to stay!
 
Mrs. Pam! It's a big deal in our house to get to be in her class. 
 
And if going to school isn't good enough, her two best friends are in her class!
We are so excited about this year! Go rock preschool Meri Mae!

First Day of First Grade

First day of first grade for our Otto!
He was so excited. Like, happy to wake up early, waiting for me at the door, and didn't even want to stop at the park excited. "It's okay that we're early, Mom, I probably just need to get to class."
His new excited face cracks me up. And if you can't read the sign, he wants to be a wilderness police officer when he grows up, but only in Alaska. Favorite book is Go, Dogs, Go "but only because I can read it, not because I like it.". His favorite activities are bike riding and tree climbing,  "But I also like to sleep sometimes and play the iPad. Because it's nice to be lazy too." 

And his still sleepy siblings, pulled out of bed and tossed in the stroller with some Cheerios. 
And Chris started his second year of his PhD, first day on Baylor's campus for the semester:)
Here's to a great year!

Dinner at the Park

We had dinner at the park tonight with the Thomas' family. It was supposed to be a MOPS event, but we were the only ones to show up so it turned into a bestie hangout-ha!
Grilled hotdogs, chips, and sodas all around!

Always fun to hang out with these little people. 
Sarah dressed herself today, as Elmo. I think she nailed it.

Hope's Birthday

My cousin's little girl turned one today and she invited us to her adorable flamingo themed swimming party.
Hope is the cutest baby. 
So sweet and basically Ned's equivalent in personality. So happy and wasn't phased at all with his rather intense kissing and hugging style, she just returned the sentiment with equal enthusiasm.
Thank you for having us Hope, happy birthday!
