Wow, sorry that I haven't updated in a while. School has started again and we have not stopped running. Our new series at church is Simplify your life... LOL I am trying, but it sure is hard. Here are some pictures from this summer and the first day of school.

We went to the Botanical Gardens in Ft. Worth this summer with our friends. It was a lot of fun. We even got to see a small wedding take place. It was very hot and at noon. I can't imagine how hot the wedding party must have been.

My precious Kierstyn....clumsy, accident prone, Kierstyn...She comes running to me at Hawaiian Falls and is bleeding. A little boy came down the slide before she could get out of the way and he pushed her down.... So she has a scar on both sides of her face, near her eyebrows.

The first day of school. The girls decided since they weren't at the same school that they wanted the same dresses. :*) Ashtyn went to a different campus this year. It was very tough at first for me ;*) She is doing great! I sure miss her in the afternoons. I feel guilty if I work until 5pm, because I know she is at home. She is good about getting her homework done and does some small chores for me. I appreciate so much the sweet, responsible young lady she has become. Kierstyn just loves 1st grade! She is quite the little writer. Her teacher says she is very animated in her writings. She is reading like crazy and is making 100s on her spelling test. She works very hard when we get home to get her reading done and her spelling words written 3xs each.

We are still playing soccer every weekend, but now Kierstyn has started too. We have to split up some Saturdays, but the girls understand.
I hope this finds everyone well!

Glad to see how your school year has started. I need to take my boys to the botanical gardens.

The girls look so cute in their first day of school outfits.
