Graham's self portrait from his Kindergarten curriculum night. So handsome.

Q's first official dentist appointment.  Started off positive letting her count all 20 of his teeth, then even let her brush the top row.  Then that was the end of his cooperation.  Maybe next time big guy...

O and G got into the no cavity club once again and continue to LOVE their dental visits.  Liv's six year molars are coming in and once she looses her current two wigglers, there should be a break from tooth fairy visits for a little while.

If only Quinn was actually going to school already.

Surprise Pick-up!

First Day of School!

Olivia was anxious and thrilled to start 2nd grade in Ms. Mariani's class.  Graham was also excited, with a side of nervous and belly pain, to start Kindergarten with Ms. Smith/Mrs. Pines! Fun to have them at the same school together again.

Kindergarten Ready!

My middle man is officially ready to rock Kindergarten. Classroom meet and greet complete. Back-to-school picnic done with a swing to his face and a bruised corner of his eye.  But this guy is going to do great and love school (and Mama will miss having lunch with him every day).

Our herb ladders all died a sad death this summer, but our experimental tomato plants grew like champs.  The three plants have yielded us (and are still going) literally hundreds of cherry tomatoes that the kids love to just pop in their mouths.

Wonder Lake Day

We were lucky enough to spend the day with the Nichols crew at their grandparents pool on Wonder Lake.  Bonus fun was the boat ride to the marina for ice cream and lake swimming.

These two front teeth are coming in fast!

Lake Time

 Happy to get one last summer weekend at the lake in with my people before school starts.  Kicked off with some pathetic raspberry picking with very little to pick...
And this sweet lady rainbow loomed the entire weekend.
