There are not adequate words to describe our excitement about how well Lily has adjusted to Kindergarten! For the past year she has said she refuses to go there..ever! Whenever we spoke about it or whenever we drove by which is multiple times a day! She told other people I was lying when I told them she was going to Kindergarten in ___ many days. We thought we were in for it. I was expecting tears until Christmas at the earliest. Then we went to Meet Your Teacher and her tune changed drastically!! To see more about her big day, check out this video of her Kindergarten experience! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CU-g7tW4-A&feature=youtu.be

Friends Forever

Sometimes they fight over a ball or "forget" to share the LeapPad and Grady still hits Lily, but there is sooooo much love and devotion between these 2 that makes my heart go pitter patter.... photo IMG_1214_zpsba49f334.jpg

He (tries to) shows her the wild side and she (tries to ) shows him the calm side and together they are a perfect pair! photo IMG_1155_zpsb7557e8a.jpg

She's always asking for hugs and kisses and pouts like a mo-foe if he turns her away...he senses that and comes running a mile away almost bowling her over.  Rinse. Repeat.

Grady is lazy bones when it comes to his shoes on and off...someone always caters to him so he's along for the free ride. photo IMG_1003_zps15eb2c0c.jpg
Somehow he became a swimmer this summer and it's like the angels in heaven are singing when I can relax a little pool side and watch them jump in and out 5,647 times!

Book Lovin' G

Grady is (majorly) obsessed with books.  Doesn't matter if the mail carrier was reading books to him, he would curl in his/her lap and settle in....I think he prefers David in the end.
(love can build a bridge)

tourist grady...

mini mice...

Barney time...

My friend Katie makes these bow holders that I love...if you're interested email her at ktdiva29@hotmail.com with what you're looking for...she also does big wooden letters or a picture frame like pictured here...

life is good.
