Nora's broken arm

Well that was a short soccer season... On Saturday morning Nora fell funny and broke both bones in her left arm.  An EMT suggested we take her to Children's Hospital and we did, we got phenomenal care and were amazed at how Nora was cared for.  Nora was so calm and brave and is one tough cookie, she was hardly crying once her daddy scooped her up into his arms.  Franklin is great and calm and brave in a crisis too.  We are so grateful our girl is going to be ok, and the deliveries, candy, visitors and prayers and calls and texts from friends and family have certainly cheered her up!!  She went back to school today and did great.  She gets her splint removed and her cast put on this Friday.  She has already picked out a rainbow color and has markers to take for people to sign it next week.  :)

Flag Football

DF is playing on the Cowboys flag football team again this year, and boy has he improved!!  He is loving the game and his team and it is fun to watch!

School days

Recess fun, ice cream day, birthday party, Lake, and ram pride day. That is what we been up to lately

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!
