And school begins...

I can't believe that the entire summer has gone by and I haven't posted ONE picture or ONE update. I'm so embarrassed!

We are already in September and you know what that means...first day of school, to be more specific, first day of second grade. Can I really have 2nd graders already? Their first week is almost finished and they are loving being back in school, seeing their friends and their new teachers. We had a little bussing issue the first day, but it seems to have worked itself out, although, I think I still need to make a call to the bus garage.

So, without further ado, here are our first day of school pics:

Lindsey, age 7, 2nd grade

Sydney, age 7, 2nd grade

We love shaggy Brewster!

Love my sissy!

Lindsey had a great activity today at school. She had brought home a small brown paper bag with instructions to put five things in the bag that told something about her, but the items HAD to fit in the bag. Apparently, when she talked about her stuff today, she got quite shy and started crying over one of the items. That item that she had put in the bag (which, by the way, I thought was a perfect thing to put in it) was a song she had written. When talking at school, everyone wanted her to sing it and that is when she became shy about it and didn't want to talk about it anymore! It really is such a great representation of her, as she is always writing songs, making up songs, singing them, making up tunes, etc. The other items she put in the bag were: a DS game, a bracelet she had made, a little stuffed dog that looked like our dog, Brewster, and a Tootsie Roll! I love that last item!

Hopefully, I can get back in the swing of things here and give you a proper update! Enjoy your day!

Long time, no write

I know. It's been....well, forever, since I posted here. I promise an update very soon. A lot has happened, road-curving, roller coaster type stuff. Not with the girls but other life stuff.

Anyhoo, I wanted to post about our upcoming walk with the March of Dimes. Our team is walking for the 7th year! It's hard to believe that it's been that long, but I guess so, since Lindsey & Sydney are 7 years old. This cause is near and dear to us. The funds we raise go to help with many things: research, programs and keeping healthy babies and prematurity on everyone's mind, making people aware of the issues around not just prematurity, but how to have a healthy pregnancy and baby, in general.

Over the years, you've helped our team raise nearly $20,000! I'm so, so grateful for your support! Please give what you can! Every DOLLAR helps! Just click the link/badge below to make your donation and to view the girls photo montage from last year. Thank you SO much!
