“Mom, can I have a snack?”
“But you haven’t even eaten your lunch yet.”.
“Now can I have a snack?”
Not a big eater.
The first week of school went by without too many hitches.
The kids both like school. They enjoy their day.
They just have a really hard time saying goodbye to mommy.
I took these pictures last Tuesday – which was Hannah’s second day of school and Eli’s first day of preschool.
Eli is not as into posing for pictures as Hannah. So I didn’t get too many and he insisted on including the shovel in the picture.
Hannah was ready to rock and roll this morning – did all her morning tasks and was pretty much ready to go about an hour before we needed to leave (how long is that going to last?).
Eli was ready and willing to smile too!
Not so sure he will be tomorrow (on HIS first day of preschool).
She was a little nervous when it was time for us to leave….but I am hoping she quickly realized how much fun she is going to have!
It is hard to believe she is in Kindergarten. It seems like yesterday that she looked like this:
And NO I didn’t cry……but I can’t get this song out of my head!
Watch out Kindergarten – here comes Hannah!
Yesterday we took advantage of a wonderfully sunny and warm September and took the boat out on the water.
For the first time.
In 6 years.
As soon as we got out there I couldn’t believe we waited so long. What fun!
Or as Hannah put it with the wind blowing on her face:
“THIS IS AWESOME!!!”
Eli thought so too.
Captain Daddy was having fun driving the boat.
But then it was time to tube!
Which meant Captain Mommy had to take control of the boat.
Captain Mommy had to relearn boat driving.
Captain Mommy was nervous.
But Captain Mommy did her best and the kids had a blast – especially Hannah who tubed by herself for quite a while after daddy and Eli disembarked.
We had a great day and plan to do this WAY more often next summer!
We spent most of Sunday relaxing in the (HOT) sun. First at the pool in my Grandma’s neighborhood:
The pool water was really cold (to me and dad!) so we didn’t hang out there too long.
After lunch, we headed to the club my Aunt Diane and Uncle Bill use to try out their new water park addition called Splash Cove. The kids had a good time playing here!
We ended the day with a pizza dinner (and cookies!) with Bill and Diane at my Grandma’s house.
Another super fun, busy, day!
