1st day of school

That's right folks, first day of school for us was July 6th.
I'd like to say that there were no tears shed, but I'd be lying.

It was Allison's first day of Kindergarten. She has Mrs. Thompson.
Allie was a champ. She was so excited to go to school. She could hardly wait until 11:30.

Jillian thinks that she is big enough to be at school.
Everything that Allie did, she had to do also.

Since we moved, the kids all go to a brand new school.
It is so clean and nice.

Emily is in the 6th grade. Thomas is in 2nd grade.
Allie is in Kindergarten.
Jillian gets to stay home with mommy!

So long summer. We enjoyed the three weeks we had with you.

4th of July

We had such a wonderful weekend celebrating this great country we live in. We celebrated the actual 4th at grandma's house with the Borgquists and Morans. It was so fun to see everyone. We missed Aunt DeAnn, but loved seeing Erika.

Our neighborhood does a 4th of July block party every year. I guess because people had plans on the Fourth some of the neighbors got together for a 3rd of July party. The kids got to decorate their bikes and have a little bike parade. It was really cute.
