Summer Reading Awards Program

Abby participated in a summer reading program for her school this summer. Basically, they keep track of how many pages they read and then turn it in at the beginning of school. It is amazing how many pages these kids read!!
here's Abby receiving her medal for participating!
she also won 3rd place overall for her grade and top Bible reader

You know what a big fan of reading I am, and she and I had a great time reading together and going to the library to get her books!

First day of school!

The boys both started "school" this past Wednesday. Jacob in k4 and Nathan in a 2 year old mother's day out program! Jacob, who is typically our most reserved and shy child, was VERY excited about school, the playground, and carpool.
This picture is as we were walking Nathan in. He was a little apprehensive!
sweet big brother was being so encouraging! As a side note, Nathan went in w/out any tears and according to his teachers had a great, very happy day!!

this is just too cute to not be included! Nathan dressed in Jacob's fireman coat!
