July Catch Up

I can’t believe July has come and gone. Only a few more weeks until little miss heads into 1st grade. I’m trying to soak in every last second with these crazy exhausting kiddos before they head back to school. I just can’t believe how quick it is all going!

Some of my favorite July moments and pictures:

Fun in Texas

A couple weeks ago we were back in Texas to visit family and to see one of my oldest dearest bestest friends get married!
Being back reminded me that I never want to move back…it’s too dang hot! Like walking on the sun!
But the kids had a blast visiting all the grandparents, kissing on their baby cousin, and swimming for hours every single day. Miles even got over his fear of the water!! Huge step there!

last day of kindergarten!

Now this is a hard day.  My little Payton-Pie is not so little anymore. And it is killlling me! And yes I know I will probably be saying this every year, I have so far, lol, but seriously this year is a hard one!! She has grown so much, learned a ton, and lost a lot of teeth…ha! She looks older and more mature…I think that is the part that is getting me the most. But she is still my same little silly giggly caring sweet girl.
I am so proud of you sweet girl, you have worked so hard and learned so much. You have thoroughly enjoyed every bit of Kindergarten and that makes my Mama heart happy. You are going to rock first grade!!
…now off to go cry in a corner…booo hoooo.

Last day of Preschool 2017-2018

Just a quick post on this little dude. Payton’s comes next week! Last day of school today for my little guy…who is now a big guy. A few inches taller and about 5 pounds heavier. End of the school years are always bittersweet for me. I just can’t believe how fast it has gone. I can’t believe he is on to PreK next year!!! Crazy! I won’t go on because it will just become one sappy page of me rambling, but had to get on here to say how incredibly proud of him I am and what an amazing little person he is becoming.

These two, love them to death:

I had the weekend off…and it sure was a good one. Sun, water, sleep, football, a day with best friends, and so much fun with Byron and the kiddos.
Byron even made me a cake! And he gets extra points for homemade frosting!!
I am just one happy Mama.

4 days of happy shenanigans right here:

Suns out!

The sun was out and shining…and it hit 70 degrees! Woot! So the kids went out to play and 15 minutes later came back in begging for the sprinkler and popsicles. Sounded like a great idea to me!! So just a few pics of our Sunday Funday:
