Micah's First day of Preschool

Mister Man started 2 days a week at our church's preschool after Labor Day. He's loving it so far. A couple of his friends are in the class and he's meeting some new ones. He had a great time the first day, even if he did get chomped down on my a 'friend.' :)

Here are my sweet boys pictures.
He was so excited to have his own nap mat, backpack and lunch kit. Yaya gave him the lunchkit last Christmas. My neighobr (who has a Micah) handed down the nap mat and I got the (cheap) backpack at wal mart and embroidered his name on it.

The first day was 'bring a teddy bear' day. He took one of sisters.

Playing with Ms. Yolanda.

Bye bye big boy! Wishing you a wonderful year!

Around the House

I don't know why I've stopped blogging. I'm busy and it's low on the list. So, I thought maybe I could show some cute pictures of the kids from this month. They're in reverse order, oh well!

It rained a couple weekends ago and the kids loved playing in the rain!

I put on a show one afternoon and came into this cuddle fest. Too cute!

Since I haven't been updating....

I thought you might like to know that I DID blog earlier this summer.  It went live today on Juice in the City's new blog.  I love that they let me post about my faith and our adoption!! :)

Quick visit to Georgetown

Back at the end of July/early August, after our trip to Dallas and walk around Baylor campus, we went to visit Pawpaw in Georgetown. We visited, stayed one night, and headed home during naps the next day. It was quick, but it is always fun visiting him. We got to see Mindy and Jim as well, and stopped in and saw Uncle Gerry and Aunt Patti. Here are some pictures, mostly of the kiddos, of our quick trip.

HILARIOUS face, we put it on her birthday invitation :)
