busy bees

My weeks are getting a little busier now that Luke is in school {PreK} and I spend a few evenings a week assisting with Zumba and teaching new numbers. I notice it most on my iPhone! There have been far less pictures lately! Here's a few from this past week...

it's been a rough week and sometimes we just need a good laugh. I was looking thru my phone and found this pic of Jack and it makes me laugh out loud, hope it does you too!

Big-Boy Walker

I've been trying to get a video of Jack walking all week! After several tries last night, i finally got this one. It's not the best, and he's certainly walked further than this- but it's still pretty cute!

First Day Pic

First Day

Luke had his first day of PreK preschool toady. I got to help in the classroom and meet all the kids. It was great fun and Luke had a blast! So much so that this happened on the ride home:

PreK Orientation

We had Luke's PreK Orientation on Tuesday! We got to go into the preschool and hang out with Teacher Kellie, see where his stuff would go and play a bit. We had a lot of fun seeing our old friends from last year and meeting a few of the new kids. Luke is super excited to get back to school {and so is mommy!!}.

Luke is also lucky to get to go to school with cousin Grace! I got this sweet picture of Grace painting. Isn't she SO GOOD?? Love that kid!

13 months

Jack- you turned 13 months on Monday and I forgot to document it. SORRY!

Things you're doing now:
- you point to our nose or yours and say "nooooose"
- you point to a ball and say "ba!"
- when you see a dog you say "Doh, ooh, ooh" {like a dog barking sound}

You still refuse to walk on your own, even though we know you can. You're standing more on your own and you're trying to crawl up onto everything!! Everyone wherever we go stop to look at you still b/c of your big eyes and sweet smile. We love you monkey!!

Last Day at the Pool and Park

Again behind on posts!! ack! Last Saturday was the last pool day of the summer at grammies. All 4 of the granbabies went in and had an awesome time. I, of course, had NO PHOTOS of the event b/c I was in the pool the whole time catching kids jumping in. It's amazing how fast they grow in a year. Last year at this time, I could barely get Luke to jump in and Addy was just beginning to swim well. Now Luke is swimming and jumping in with no abandon and Addy is doing handstands in the pool! Even Grace was enjoying herself! It also took us all summer- but we finally got jack to go in the pool to his waste and splash around!

After the pool we all dried off and went to the park. The kids had a blast and I know my 2 slept great that night! Here's photos of that!
