First Day of First Grade

Wow. I cannot believe it. Emma started first grade today. She is at a new school, with new friends, going full days instead of the 1/2 days she did in Kindergarten. She had a wonderful day and cannot wait to go back tomorrow. I only pray this eagerness last for the next 11 years! Apparently the girls were so excited for Emma's first day of school they slept together on the floor. Emma woke up with the biggest smile on her face, as she does most mornings. She is such a early bird. So afraid she is going to miss something. Hanna did well with her sister being at school, but was so excited when Emma got home. She even shared her Tootsie Roll, giving Emma the biggest piece. Now that is love! Good luck at school this year Emma. Mommy loves you so much and you make me so proud! I love you Emma Kate!

Oh So Pretty....

They totally have a new pink PedEgg. Run, don't walk! You must purchase one, and they have pink now to support Breast Cancer Research! Why does this make me so excited? I don't know. Smooth feet and a Breast Cancer Research supporter. Awesome!

For Your Viewing Pleasure

Enough said!

A Girls Best Friend

I am so in love with this product. Have you tried it? It works great. So worth the $10 is cost. I must confess even my husband loves it. :)

Major Bloggy Mayhem

So last night I was trying to be all computer savvy and update my blog. You know, give it a fresh new look. Well, computer savvy I am not. I totally messed my blog up. I was near tears. Every thing was in HTML format and it was like trying to speak a completely different language. I emailed my bestie who created my blog in the first place. The email went something like this, HELP ME! Knowing that she would be online too at 10:30pm she called me right away. I don't know how she did it, but she is a genius! She got my blog back, and introduced me to this website, which was so much user friendly. Not only is Kate smart, she's pretty, and can cook! A triple threat. Anyways, thank you Kate from the bottom of my heart. I {heart} you Kate! So what do you think of the new look?

It's a good thing Momma

Emma and I were in the car today running some errands when she starts reading all of the business and street signs we are going by. I told Emma I was so impressed with her reading abilities and that she was growing up way to fast. Emma then replied, "Oh don't worry momma, it's a good thing." Yes Emma, it is a good thing, but just not to fast. You will always be my first baby no matter what your age or reading ability.

Rock and Roll Daddy

Will taught the girls how to say "Rock and Roll". He was a little pumped after coming back from Creation 2008. We love you Daddy!

Hanna and her burger

Tonight while in the bathtub:

Emma: "Mom, come quick, Hanna has a burger!"

Me: "What?"

Emma: "Come quick, Hanna has a burger in the bathtub."

Me: "Seriously, you are going to make me get up?"

Emma: "Please! Come quick."

Me: "Fine, on my way, this better be good!"

Oh, you meant booger. Nice Emma!

Home Sweet Home

Well, we are officially back in the state of Maryland. The move is behind us and things are starting to settle down. We are so happy to be back in our "hometown". Things with the move went fairly smoothly. Will and I both feel for the first times in our lives that we have truly answered the Lord's calling. We both knew we needed to move back to Maryland, but it wasn't until we fully surrendered the situation to God that we became at peace with the idea. And at peace we have stayed. Following God's plan sure does feel good. We are happy where we are. Content. The girls love to swim in the pool and there are so many great places to walk Jacoby. Jacoby has quite an entourage when he goes out. All the neighbor dogs just love him. And why wouldn't they? He is awfully cute. Here are a couple of pictures taken today by the girls. Can you tell they love their dog? I was feeling awfully brave posting pictures of me with no makeup but focus on the girls...they're the cute ones!
