Lukas goes to school...

It was so so hard for me to let Lukas go to school this year. I was NOT ready for him to leave me. He has been my company and entertainment since Jaren started going to school. I had already learned how fast time went by once Jaren had started school and I was not ready for things to change again. After many, many hours of crying I figured it was time to let go. Thankfully he only had to start off going half day for the first month. Now he just started going full day and I feel like I'm adjusting all over again. He LOVES school and everything he does there. Lukas has already started to advance to much and I love hearing all about his day when he returns home.

Are you in search for a guitar player for your next event? Need a entertainer for your next party or wedding? Look no further. I have exactly the act you need.

                                                Where else can you find moves like these?

This young, hip and new to the scene would love to play for you. If your budget is low she would gladly play for a new Barbie or even a snack. Leave a comment below if your interested.

Back to routine!

I'm not sure why this never posted so we are going to try again. (Even if it's a little late) I'm always sad to see him go back to school, but I sure love having all of us on a daily routine. He was more than ready to head back and start the new school year. Here are some pictures from the first day of school for Jaren.

                                                          My Big 3rd grader...sniff sniff
                                                 I always take a group picture on the first day.

It seems like we were just dropping him off at preschool for the first day. NOW he is in 3rd grade. My husband and I both went to the same school as Jaren and I swear when I walked into his classroom it felt as though I had stepped back into time. The classroom still looks the same for the most part AND smells the same. We had a good laugh about it on our way home. I can't wait to see what Jaren learns this year. Luckily he still has a great passion to learn and read. I hope it always stays that way.

As you can see, someone really really misses her older brother. We are now on our second week of full day Kindergarten for Lukas. She is still adjusting to having him gone all day. When a alarm goes off on my phone, she starts yelling that it's time to pick up her brothers.

                                                                  He is so good to her.

Mommy's Little Helper...

Recently I have the best helper a mom could ask for! Since the boys are both going to school full time now, Aubrey and I have gotten to enjoy a lot of 1on 1 time. It's been great! She loves to cook, and help me clean. When it comes to helping out she is the first one to join in. Here are a few pictures from one of our last cooking sessions.

What a sweet face.

                                        She has been working on her poses for the camera.
                                       OK so she may need to work on them a little more HA!

Enchanted Forest...

We took the kids to Enchanted Forest last weekend. The kids had so much fun and it was so nice to stay out of the heat.  Besides visiting our favorite fairy tales, we watched a short play. (Little Red Riding Hood) The kids also enjoyed some rides and then we finished with  a picnic lunch.
