Katie’s Whale

Complete with water coming out of the blowhole, eyes, and fins. 

 

Katie’s first soccer practice!

She was SOOOO excited to be going to soccer! Earlier in the day when I told her to go put on her soccer clothes, I just meant the clothes she would be wearing to practice (which she knew was her mermaid shirt and her black shorts) but she came down FULLY dressed, complete with socks and shin guards! :)

Loving ballet!

    

Charlie thinks she wants what he has. 

  

She wanted to cuddle…

And Elsa had to be in the picture.

 

Rainy Monday at the bus stop

  

A princess and her shoes.

It was 50% off day at the thrift shop so we got Katie a new costume for like $2. And of course my shoes were still out, so…

Waiting for lessons

  

Miss Thing

  

Katie’s found photos

We rarely look at the kids’ phones to see what pictures they’ve taken. But I did check Katie’s today. Here are some of my favorites dating back to last October.

 

She begged to wear my “tall shoes.”

  

Someone lost his tooth while we were at dinner! 

Kudos to Julie for not freaking out and remembering to take a picture. :)

  

Headed out for Korean with friends

      

I remembered my good camera for soccer today!

He’s having a blast and getting better every game! Also, my mommy guilt got the better of me and Katie starts soccer practice next week…

Today’s awesome puzzle

    

This is how I like to do soccer practice. 

On the sidelines, relaxing, and chatting with a friend. 

 

A new playground with friends

We dragged them to morning program and they dragged us to a new park!

   
 

Halley’s first spirit day!

Black and gold for everyone! (Katie and I were planning on going to the morning program so we dressed for it as well. Also, I was excited to finally wear fall clothes!)

Since daddy was home this morning we got him in a pic, too—but he wasn’t spirited.

And then at school! Can you see Owen?

Our little daredevil

 

She then wanted to jump off the play structure that’s 6′ off the ground (that level behind her head). I told her it was too high and she might get hurt.

“No. I’ll just brush off my hands like this.” 😳

So I compromised and held her hand as she jumped. She still fell on her butt, bumped her knee, and was covered in wood chips…but she did it!

Someone interrupted the puzzles.
