Day at the Lake

We had a great time today on the Lake! We did a little swimming off the dock and then some tubing on the lake and some attempts at water skiing!

All the kids ready for the water!

Jill and Chris have this really cool huge raft for the water. It is tied to the dock so the kids can bounce all over it and then slide into the water.

The boys up in front!

A rare family pic

Austin and Quinn ready to take off!

This tubing thing is hard work!

alright so the last time I tried to water ski I was in like 10th grade and I was not successful, so of course today I thought I would try again. I was a bit more successful this time but not really! I think I got up for about 1.2 seconds!! And then this......

somewhere beneath the water is me!

but Amy did really well!! Chuck and Jason also tried but the women were on kid duty back at the dock so that was not documented!!

First Bus and First day of Preschool!!

Well it is official, Austin is a big kid riding the school bus! To say the least he loves it!

He is the 3rd kid on the bus each morning!

Like a crazy mom I followed the bus the first time, i just wanted to see where it went!

gettting off the bus, all smiles!
Today was Campbell's first day of preschool! She was so excited and she had a great day! I don't think she really wanted me to pick her up.

First Day of School

Well we are off to Kindergarten! He is at a brand new school and his teacher is Mrs. Hale! He was very excited this morning and when we left him in his classroom he was sitting at his desk coloring away. He was also very excited because one of his T-ball teammates is also in his class, Ben and also a little girl that we go to church with, Ally. Since we moved schools the bus does not start picking him up until next week, so don't worry there will be more school bus pictures to come....

His friend Ben, they were so excited to be in class together!
