2016 School Year!!!!!

Monday morning I got home from the gym at 6:15 am and my girls where up and at it! They could not wait for school to start! Oh how I wish that enthusiasm lasted all year long....or even at least past the first week of school! 

This kindergartner was READY for her first day of school and was over the moon hoping she would have homework the first night! knew that spunk and sass would pop up soon enough!

 And my big 3rd grader looking like she's almost 15 years old!

 and baby brother couldn't stand that he was being left out of school pictures and came running outside with his backpack! After some help from daddy.....he was ready!
 Such a cutie pie!
 My three little babies!

 and of course Nana had to stop by and see everyone before we headed out!
 My boys!

All SMILES for this school year!!!
 This girl walked 20mph into her school! I had to make her slow down three times so we could all catch up to her!
 And she has the most precious teacher EVER! We are so excited about this upcoming year!
 And one of her bffs from preschool is in her class and is her desk-mate!!!
 And apparently its so not cool to take pictures in class at your desk when you become a 3rd grader.......however I was allowed to take her picture in the hall while NO one was looking,lol!
 And my love bug didn't even make it 3 steps into his room before his girlfriend Essie jumped in for some hugs!
I LOVE this look on his's like yeah she sweet on me and I cool with that mom!

 And after a great day of kindergarten we to have our first cavity filled............
lets just say it was not a pleasant visit for my sweet girl! 
 And this boy....he is pumped about being back at school with all his buddies!
 He will not let me carry him in anymore..........Me walk mommy................uhhh heartbreak for this mommy!

 And he no longer has to sit in the highchair for breakfast!
 Today was pride day so Kinley got to wear her school shirt for the fist time and she was tickled ten kinds of 10 to wear it!

Some fun before the school year starts back!

Last Friday we loaded up and headed to the zoo........because that's totally where you should go when the heat index is 111 degrees! Despite the heat we had a great time! 

 This gorilla would not stop staring at us and Creed kept saying.... I hug him mommy! Ummm not sweet boy lets not do that!
 Oh and of course he LOVED all the snakes which made my skin crawl!
 It was so much fun to see  you watch the animals and talk about them and to them! You would say...jump monkey and when he would jump you would just squeal!

 Oh my lands the train ride..........Creed could not wait to get on "Thomas The Train!" As soon as he saw it he kept saying over and over and over again....... me ride Thomas mommy!
 And of course this silly girl insisted she ride alone in the very back! Every time I turned around she was grinning from ear-to-ear!

 Creed Cowart.......I think you maybe the only kid in the whole wide world who does not like chicken nuggets or french fries! I guess that is a good thing,lol!

 After 4 hours Creed said....mommy I tired so we wrapped our day up. And before I even got the car in reverse......he was snoring!
And time for GIRL TIME! Us girls had our annual back to school pediacures and it was a blast!

August: Micah Claire

August 4th 2016..........Oh my stars this is it........Your last month to be eight! YIKES!! You could not be more ready to turn NINE; and I could not want time to slow down anymore. You amaze me so much sweet girl! You are my rock and my biggest helper.

 last monthly pictures as an eight year old!

You are more precious than any gem sweet Claire Bear! 

You have asked to do the county fair pageant and against my better judgement I said okay! Uhhh pageants are such the devil I tell you! I hope you know you are beautiful inside and out and you will always be my queen no matter what three people with the score sheet say! But I will say we had a blast trying on dresses and you looked amazing and old........really really old!

This smile says it all! 
 Time or 3rd grade school supply shopping!!!! You where beyond excited that your list included a jump drive! You told me yall where going to be doing some major work this year and I busted out laughing!
And the letter you have been waiting for finally came! Mrs. Williams will be your 3rd grade teachers! I pray you have a wonderful year ahead of you sweet girl!
