Fabulous Fall

I'm sure I've mentioned it before, I LOVE FALL! In fact, if we could have double fall and no winter, I would be one happy girl! 
If I ever had to pick my favorite place to go in the fall, it would have to be World's End State Park and this past Sunday, the weather was perfect for a day of "unplugged" fun.

A walk in the woods with leaves crunching underfoot was just what I needed to recharge my batteries. The kids love it there too!

The colors were beautiful and the weather was amazing! Sun shining and warm enough for Stella to dip her toes in the water (Thankfully, because she fell in and was wet up to her knees!).
Of course, we love to recreate photos from the past, so Felicia decided to wear a leaf on her face again this year!
It turns out, we picked the perfect day to enjoy our favorite fall tradition. Next weekend is turning cold. Boo! I am NOT ready for winter just yet!

Ten years ago, we were blessed with this beautiful girl! 
She's been entertaining us ever since. She's smart, funny, kind, and helpful.
 Happy Birthday, Madelyn!

My Empty Nest

Madelyn(4th grade), Stella(Kindergarten), Felicia(6th grade)
The day I have been dreading is finally here. My baby girl has left the nest and joined the big girls at school. She had a bit of a trial run over the summer when she went to the summer reading program, but that didn't go so well. There were several days that we had to drop her off as she sobbed. Today, NO TEARS! She was super excited when she woke up and was thrilled that Felicia and Madelyn would be riding the bus with her! 
All the girls were a little tired when they got off the bus this afternoon, but other than that, they had a GREAT day! Hopefully the rest of the school year goes as well as today. Now I just have to figure out how to spend all my free time...

School is out for the Summer!

The kids have had a great school year, but they were so ready to get their summer started! Today was the last day, so of course, we had to get the party started with a huge water balloon fight! Aaron's last day was last Friday, so I enlisted his help in filling balloons all morning. It was a tough job, but somebody had to do it! 

With game faces on, they were ready for war!
It didn't take long to blow through what took us almost two hours to fill!

Happy Summer!

Kindergarten Bound

I can't even believe it, but it's true. Stella will be turning five at the end of next month and starting Kindergarten in the fall. She was registered a few weeks ago and is very excited to start, me...not so much! She's my BABY! I'm pretty sure I'll be sobbing like a baby the first day of school!

Springing to Life

I feel like I have just awakened from hibernation. 
Our winter was rough. 
Although, I don't think it was any worse than any other winters, I just think I am getting too old to deal with it. 
I need green grass, flowers, and sunshine to make me feel alive!
So yes, I am ALIVE and WELL and ready to return to life...and blogging.

See you soon!
