Back to School

Nora found out she has Ms. Roberson, which is exactly who she wanted and she is thrilled!  So excited for a great Kindergarten year again :)

I forgot to take a picture on open house with DF's teacher, but we ran into her on Sunday at Cracker Barrel and I got one then!  He is in 2nd grade with Mrs. Elliott and she seems very nice too!  

lynny came over the day before to paint her nails blue and gold
It was pouring down rain and it was 7:00 but I got those first day pictures, even if it looks like they are going to night school!

Goodbye hugs from baby bro, he got to stay in his pjs a little longer!

after school treats to celebrate a great first day!  Nora said it was awesome, the best day of her entire life.  DF said his was "pretty good too".  That was an enthusiastic pretty good, not a sad one.  Ikey and I miss our buddies, and he asked "where bubby go?  where sissy go?" a hundred times but it was a good day and we have prayers for a great year!

Bass and Bass take the links

DF entered his first golf tournament this week, the Hot Springs Country Club JR. Club Championship. They played 6 holes for 2 days and needed a caddy each day. The first day, Grandpa was his caddy and it was very special. What a sweet memory they made! Day 2, it was daddy's turn and I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, DF or Franklin. DF had fun, tried hard and was a good sport. That's all we asked of him. So proud of this boy!

Fun week with friends

This week, DF and Nora went to a day camp called Tanako, they loved it and came home exhausted but really bonded over the week.  DF liked being with Nora and looking out for her and of course, she loved being with her Bubby.  Isaac and I had a good time at home, cleaning out, cooking, and running a few errands.  It was a good week!
He got some new bubbles in (last time to wear these things, but he's my last baby and I'd swaddle him if I still could).   Nora went to help him try them on an came back wearing one herself- I can't believe she is going to Kindergarten in 2 weeks!!!!
Ikey discovered the fun of pop goes the weasel for the first time!

And we went on a snow cone date.  We had some good time together ourselves :)

We went swimming with conner and enjoyed some snacks

And after camp one day Blakely and Ashton came home for a sleepover and we made our own pizza!

Life's a Beach!

Last week we met the Van Bebber and Hall family in Grayton Beach, FL.  It is on 30A and I have never been before but I now see what all of the hype is about, it is picturesque and gorgeous! We had so much fun, we swam, the kids did contests and plays, we crab hunted, we grilled out, ate fresh sea food, biked to Seaside for lunch on the beach! We went to the Hub for dinner and watched live music, we explored, visited, played lots of Old Maid and made memories and have stories I think we will tell for years to come!  Good for the soul, to be in such a beautiful place, with great friends!!!
