This is what a fourth grader looks like, in case you were wondering.
How happy is he about going to school on the first day? Ladybug, not so much.....

Nothing like two happy children.

Sometimes at daycare, they play "beauty shop"......

lovely weather we're having!

Oh my word- the weather this weekend has been great! The only down side has been that Stella is too ill to go out and play- that tooth is not finished coming through, her sinus ick is still hanging around, and that is enough to make any one sad. Sam spent the weekend with his pal, Bob, so he has probably had many adventures.
School is great, we are all fine [except for sweet Stella, but she is on the mend] and life is good. Hope your week is just as nice!

ballgames, haircuts, and winking

Brother in law Greg gave us some tickets to see the Redbirds play. Not just tickets, but a meal, as well as four chances to win 50 "redbird bucks" [for the gift shop or any food vendor in the park] Sam loved the game, Stella loved walking around the park and playing on the playground, and we loved being there with them. At the end of the eighth inning, they announced the winner of the bucks- Sam! How exciting! It took FOREVER to figure out what all to buy- and he ended up with a great deal of stuff. Thank you, Greg, for the great evening!

Stella's first haircut was this week- she sat so still ! It helped that her father was getting his cut at the same time- the stylist turned Stella's chair so she could watch him . Only a little off the back, and her bangs were evened out, but it really makes a difference. So cute!

Her Grandmother taught her to wink this week, and she is quite proud of herself- she has not perfected it yet, but just give her a little time!

Hope you all have a great week, and are as ready for school to start next week as we are!
