Meet And Greet

Today all my kiddos got to meet their teachers for the upcoming year. Kaitlyn had met her teacher on her practice day, but I hadn’t! It was fun to see her classroom and meet some of the other moms. Then it was a quick hand off with the babysitter to the boys’ school to meet their teachers. (I was also so thankful that we still had our old house. Parking at the boys’ school is always tight. We parked at our old house and just walked down!)

Water Games

The kids decided to break out the water guns today. That’s sometimes a touchy situation, but today they handled it well and it was all in good fun!

Shenanigans

Because we weren’t sure exactly when Kaitlyn’s bus would be back yesterday, we mostly played outside while we waited for her to return. It’s rare that I have all the kids outside for an extended period of time – especially when I have my camera.

Don’t the big boys look excited when we were trying to take a picture comparing their heights? I do that periodically because some day, I think Teague is going to be taller. The joke is probably on me and Alex will always be taller!

Trial Run

There are a lot of things I love about our local schools. One of the things is the “trial run” day for Kindergarten. Today Kaitlyn had her practice day. The school bus comes by the house and picks her up (and our neighbor who is also a little girl in kindergarten – perfect!). There is a teacher on the bus to talk with them and answer any questions. They are taken to school and shown exactly how the day will go – including where the bus will drop them off, where their teacher’s room is located, etc. They are gone about an hour or two. Then the bus brings them back home. It’s a great first introduced to school without all the other kids and chaos of a true first day.

Favorite Things

Ben tends to latch on to a favorite thing for a few days before moving on. That favorite thing might be a lovey, a book, a food, or even a pair of shoes. The last few days, it has been a pair of cleats he found in the attic. It cracks me up so I’ve been letting him wear them. (And yes, they are at least three sizes too big.)

Overachiever

It turns out our garden is a bit of an overachiever this year. We have more tomatoes than we know what to do with!

The Creator

Alex loves to create. Today he decided to build a summer sled with parts he found in Wade’s shop. It kept him entertained for quite a while (which is sometimes difficult). When it didn’t quite work out the way he wanted, he was able to switch gears and use the rope to tow Ben around the yard.
