old pecan street festival

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Last saturday, Adam took the girls out for Daddy donut date. I had the most wonderful cup of coffee and Bible study in my silent house (amazing!). We got out for a little while and went as a family to the festival. We came home and napped. I made a big dinner and we crashed again. It was a wonderful Saturday. Those kind of days are rare for us, so I enjoyed every minute of it.

I was caught off guard by how much they both like this little pretend game. Plus, it just looks hilarious.

the night before kinder

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

36 days ago I wrote this:

"Tomorrow is your first day of Kindergarten, Peach. I can't believe it! You just turned 5 last week and we think you are a brave little girl to be starting Kinder this year.

You have been the little girl in our family who loves family time at home the most. You love having us all together. So this is a big step to be going to school on your own as a big kid. One thing we are praising God for this year is that you get to join your sister at school. Y'all get to be best-friend-sisters at home and at school. We hope you make some great memories at school with new friends, but we also hope you make some great memories with your sister.

You packed up your school supplies this afternoon & you picked out your outfit...and I could tell it got you really excited. For 2 years now, you have been in the car with me taking big sis to school. Now it is your turn to be a new student.

We think your are so smart. Daddy and I are always amazed at what you can accomplish when you focus your mind on it. We are also continually amazed at how brave and fearless you can be when we least expect it (like loving roller coasters and buying things at the store on your own).

Tonight I thought it was so cute that I found your water bottle in your backpack already filled up with water. You wanted to be all ready today and I think you are. Your teacher is wonderful and you have already met a handful of really sweet classmates. Have fun and be friendly. I'll be thinking about you all day, not because I don't think you are ready...but because I don't feel ready to let you grow up. You are my sweet, cuddly kid and I'll be missing you tomorrow.
I love you and I was thinking about you. I couldn't sleep until I wrote you some of my thoughts.
Love, MOM"


a little tradition I started here

first lemonade stand

Sunday, September 19, 2010

The girls sold lemonade at our recent garage sale. I thought they made a killing with their $6.75 earnings. That was at a quarter a cup. They were busy.

saying goodbye to wish fish

Friday, September 17, 2010

We have sad girls over here because their only pet, Wish Fish, died.  There were even more tears than I expected last night.  We said goodbye and sent him on with a flush.
I don't think I've every written about Wish Fish and I have to tell his story.  You see, Wish Fish, was the craziest party favor we have ever received!  I can say that and know that the friend who gave him to us should be laughing right now. :)  He came home with us 2 1/2 years ago, I think, or maybe 3 years!

I never bought him a bowl, he was always in a vase I already owned.  He was kept alive for so long only because my husband faithfully fed it.  Adam claimed that he was a he, because he's so out-numbered around here.

We have marveled at that fish for so long.  Long after all the other "party favor" fish had died.  Now my girls are looking at me with puppy-dog-eyes and longing for a new pet and I can't quite think about that yet.

For my friends who have been amazed by my neglected, but loved, fish for so many years...you must know that I'm sad for the little guy in the end.  If you have any words of comfort for the kiddos, I'll make sure they read it. ;)
