The Big 32...

Another year and another birthday has come and gone. Between all the soccer practice, games, gymnastics, dance, school, and church, we managed to celebrate Justin's big day. According to Zach, we celebrated Dad's "Jimmer" birthday. 32 has become a very important number around these parts. For his big gift we finally purchased a Grill. Yep, you heard me right, our first BBQ in almost 10 years of marriage! We can hardly wait for it to be delivered. Happy Birthday Justin! We love you. And yes my kids' are sporting their blue Gatorade mustaches, which for the moment is their beverage of choice. Zach calls it "G serious." I am going to miss all of his pronunciation mistakes one day.

Zach and Kate's First Day...

Zach started first grade at his new school, Bonny Slope Elementary, this week and has come home everyday just loving it! He has gotten himself ready every morning, dressed, lunch packed, even teeth brushed. Zach's teacher is Mrs. Weber. Her room is OCD organized so I love her already!

Kate has also been getting herself ready for school, especially with making sure her bed is made, boy I hope this routine lasts long. She finally started pre-school. This has been a long time coming. She has been more than ready, even though she won't let you know she loves it...she does! Her teachers are Miss Patty and Miss Valerie, aka "Miss Valerina". They are high energy. I guess you would have to be if you are going to be a teacher to pre-schoolers.

This week has been crazy busy with errands, soccer practice, etc. and it will only get worse as next week we add the second soccer team, gymnastics and dance to the already chaotic schedule. But I have loved watching these two take on some responsibility and can' believe how independent they are becoming.

PS - I think it's time for a new camera!
