Labor Day in San Antonio

We took a last minute trip to San Antonio for our long weekend.  We parked out car at the hotel yesterday afternoon and never got back in until we left this afternoon.  We had a great time strolling the river walk and exploring parks and the Alamo.  Molly is in a picture taking stage and the other two aren't about to let her get all of the attention so that means we got lots of fun shots on our trip.  We found a great area to take pics and I really wish we had been dressed up and not sweaty but we took advantage of it anyway.  Such a fun weekend and I'm so glad we have the pictures to prove it.

We got an evening ride on the river boat.

Little Sis wasn't sure what was going on.  She kept asking, "What are we riding this boat for?" and "Why are we being quiet for?"

This morning we visited the Alamo.

The boys enjoyed a musket demonstration and the girls freaked out and hid from the musket demonstration.  Sounds about right.  Molly heard the man say that a musket ball could take an arm and she was convinced that she was about to be short a limb.  In hysterics, the three girls bowed out to find a potty.

They all grew up so much this summer!

Her poses are too much sometimes

Proud of this guy right here.  

Everyone did great on the trip.  Avery got hangry and had a slight melt down in the mall (read lay down on the floor and refuse to move while screaming at the top of her lungs) but we got her some lunch and she was back on track.

Somebody loves her big brother and sister.

She got a little tired this afternoon and requested a stroller nap.

We decided that we need to go back for a longer trip next time.  It was a fun getaway after the first two weeks of school!

First Day of School - Kindergarten Edition

We had a soft start for Kindergarten this year.  We eased our way into it but we're in full swing now!  Monday was our first day of Classical Conversations and it's going to be a great year.  Molly has some sweet girls in her class that she already loves. They are a little older than her but thanks to hanging with her big brother all the time she fits right in.  And my class is full of sweet 5th and 6th graders who really know their stuff and we are going to have so much fun.   We've already got two field trips lined up for September and October.  We get to see the Bill of Rights at the Natural History Museum and then we are headed to Blessington Farms for a hayride and all things pumpkin.  A trip to the Ballet and something Christmasy will round out our first semester.  

Just like her brother, reading seems to come pretty naturally to her and we've had a great time learning phonics and sight words together.  Math is pretty easy right now too so she's blowing through a few lessons a day.  This will allow us some fun time when the weather gets cooler. 

It's going to be a fun year with with just Momma and the girls.  We plan to make the most of it!

Molly Turns Five

August 17th was a big day around here.  Not only was it Samuel's first day of school but it was also Molly's 5th birthday! 

We celebrated a few days early when Grammy and Papa came for a quick visit.  We visited the children's museum, ate dinner out and had a little party with all of her presents from the Oklahoma family.  A bit thank you to everyone for making her birthday special.

The neighbors strike again with yard cards!

Little sister can't be left out.

Five going on 15.

One of her birthday requests was to make a ice her own cake.  Can't argue with less work for Momma!  She had the best time.  We also had corn dogs for dinner. You only turn 5 once!
