Meeting our teachers, finding our classrooms, and desks,
and making art for the installation at the front of the school.
There is always excitement and butterflies this day, because the next day, SCHOOL STARTS!
Hard to believe sometimes how quick these kids grow up! And I loved that they all wanted to have Scout in their pictures too. I love the opportunity to take these pictures, as they often are my favorite from the year, as well as a record to me of how BIG they are growing!

Entering Second Grade
Looking forward to a good year ahead!
This year we made it to TWO fairs. The county and the state fair! (To say that Toph LOVES the fair is an understatement, so he was happy about being able to go to both! 🙂 )
The county fair was definitely smaller than I expected, but they did have a HUGE lego exhibit, that the boys went goo-goo over! 🙂
One of the the main reason I like to go, is to see the animals:
And a few pics, which really don’t show the grandeur of the exhibit, but something none the less, of the legos:
And it made me so excited to go to the State Fair!
The daytime spent with the Maughan cousins, Olivia and Grace.
Doing Hair and nails
Swimming and running thru sprinklers
And I thought this was a funny video. All the little kids just sitting in the pool… 🙂
Everyone in the car, to pick up pizza for dinner!

A Whole entire day, with family. Does it get any better than that?
spiritual crocodiles that is!
Had an lesson about the spiritual crocodiles in our lives, based on this video–
And then we went on a hunt to find some…All the kids had a turn, and they had to be careful not to touch them. It was a fun lesson, and one we all need a reminder of from time to time! 🙂
