3K bound

Last weekend the girls took off with their daddy to Dub Falls for the rodeo (Ranch Roundup). We took them last year & they had a blast. They couldn't wait to go & watch the cowboys try to catch the cows. They were even more excited to watch the horses jump around & try to throw the cowboys on the dirt. They had a great time & were so proud of their new rodeo shirt daddy bought them.

Some of you may or may not know this, but I started working outside the home, but in my home about a month ago. Huh??? Yes, I took a 60 day contract job to work from home as a virtual recruiter. It's pretty nice, because my office attire is what I want it to be (pjs, workout wear, whatever), and it's really flexible which is what I wanted/needed. I didn't go to the rodeo because I needed to catch up on work because I was given a new territory to recruit for (I'm recruiting for sales reps in Delaware now). Plus, precious pretty #2 was starting 3K on Monday, & I needed to catch up on their room & organize their closets.

Pretty #2 was so excited to be going to the "big" school with sister. She could hardly stand still for her picture. She was ready to take off!!

Here she is her teacher, Mrs. Colvin. Mrs. Colvin has taught at SMS for 30 years, and I am so grateful that God guided us to her class this year!

Sweetest. Picture. Ever.

All in all, I think it's going to be a really good year for my pretties. Excited to share stories of what's become & what's to come. Have a great week!

K is for Kate the Kindergartener

My Precious Pretty #1 started Kindergarten this past Monday. She has been anticipating this day all summer, and was really worked up about it on Monday. One thing I have noticed about PP #1 is that she has become very particular about certain things. It's like she is a selective perfectionist or some thing like that. We started & ended the week well, and I'm just going to chalk up what happened those days in between as the "adjustment". She likes her uniform. She read two of her BOB books to her teacher today. She survived & mshe realized kindergarten wasn't so bad.

Crayon wreath we made. Didn't quite hold up as well as I thought it shoulda-coulda-woulda.

Her new backpack & her special "K is for Kate the Kindergartener" goodie bag that I stuffed with pencils, pencil holders, a puppy folder & spiral, silly bands, chapstick, erasers, etc. I love shopping for school supplies, but the school that Kate goes to supplied everything she needed this year. You better believe I still had go buy some.

Waking her up for the first day. Of all the days she could have slept in throughout the summer, she chose not to rise early that day.

Ready as ever!

On our way!

On Wednesdays they go Mass, so we had to take the picture of the uniform.

Precious Pretty #2 will also be starting 3K at SMS. She will be starting a week late, because I had her registered and ready to go to another school. I don't know what happened, but something didn't feel right when I left the Meet the Teacher Nigh at the school where PP#2 was supposed to go.  I didn't feel settled or have any warm and fuzzies, and I had a lot of unanswered questions.  After a sleepless night, and lots of thoughts, prayers and reflection, I let Go and let God. He guided us to SMS and I am at peace.

I'm going to try really hard to keep up with this more often. Maybe it will be easier for me now since I have the blog app on my phone again.  We'll see.  

Happy school year!!
