Life Lately

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Whew.  Let me back up a few weeks and share a little of our life lately.  Labor Day weekend came and went, but it was such a peaceful weekend.  The girls and I stayed in our floppies all day Saturday playing games and playing outside.  The weather was absolutely perfection.  

Sunday, my parents surprised the girls by coming for the night.  All weekend, Anna Claire kept saying, "I wish Papaw and Gigi could come for the weekend."  Little did she know they were.  We looked at houses, had a good dinner (Mexican, of course) and just hung out at home.  

And the ice cream truck is still making the rounds.

This is our madness.  Everyone doing their own thing.

I can't talk her into being a cheerleader. :(

Grocery shopping after school with these two while AC was at dance.  I miss having Ava with me everyday.

Helping Daddy mix the detergent.

Sweet dance friends!

The playroom bookshelf.  Notice Anna Claire placed a "trending now" sign above her favorite books?! 
Ava's FIRST book she checked out from the school library!  I'm sad that we haven't utilized our local library like we did in Tennessee, but it's just not the same.  I'm so glad their school has an excellent library though!

Best day of school so far!  She's not a fan of her little peer.  Apparently, he gets up in her business, but she knows how to stick up her "talk to the hand."

I always leave notes in their lunchboxes and Anna Claire leaves notes in her take home folder for me to find.  #bestillmyheart
My Sunday morning chef!
Her laugh.  Full body.  It's the best.

Our neighbors invited us over for a shrimp boil.  Seriously, the biggest shrimpies I have ever seen.

This week is "All About Ava" week in Kindergarten.  She had so much fun practicing her writing and telling me all about herself.  The coolest thing about her is 1) She is a leftie 2) She has a green dot in her blue eyes, and 3) She is a dancer.  I LOVE that she takes pride in all three of those things!

First soccer practice of the year for the Soccer Divas!

This was taken during our nightly Bible reading and prayer.  After butchering about 15 names in the Old Testament, Ava turns to Anna Claire and says, "just say son of Bob." 😂 ‪#‎biblescholars‬  #forreal
son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph....I'm taking Ava's advice.

Anna Claire finally started cursive this week!  Who knew it was so exciting?!

Ava finally had homework this week!  She could not be more excited!  I pray they both ALWAYS love learning!

And I took this one this morning.  In less than one month she turns 9.  9.  How many more times am I going to get to snap a pic of that sweet sleeping baby girl of mine without her getting annoyed??!  I pray never.  Ever. Ever.

My camera has officially left the building and my phone is not far behind.  Santa, if you're reading can you please bring me a Mark III??!  Please and thank you!
