My friend's dog had a big litter of adorable chocolate lab puppies so I just couldn't resist taking the girls to go and play with them. Jill and I loaded up Lily, A and KL and headed down. Lily is absolutely obsessed with animals and she was just beside herself with Joy. KL really loved them too. A thought that they were great, but she enjoyed looking at them from a distance more than when we tried to help her pick one up or even pet it.

As always, as I was downloading pictures off my camera, I found SEVERAL pictures that I didn't recognize and were clearly taken by the girls who had snuck off with my "off-limits" camera. While, publicly, I am totally against them touching the camera, I have to admit that as a mom, it is fun to see proof of them having fun together! I do love all my beautiful little girls!!!

And So It Begins...

The house is coming along...

As such, I decided it was probably time to start packing now, so as to save myself more of a headache later. Also, so I could have it ready to show as rental. I started this little cutie's bedroom.

After I got it all cleaned out, it looked great...

And how much stuff can possibly come out of 1 small bedroom?
It was really hard to imagine that I found space to keep all this in there! And this was only 1 bedroom...the smallest bedroom! Heaven help me as I work my way through the rest of the house!

So...if anyone knows of anyone looking for a rental in the next couple of months...send them my way!

First Day of School

It may have happened almost a month ago, but it still happened! The kids are back in school. D started 8th grade, the twins 4th, and CK is now in 2nd grade. Even KL will get to go to a little joy school that starts tomorrow, but she doesn't know it yet. She will surely be excited when she finds out! Here are some pictures from the first big day.

A, walking the kids to school

The boys didn't feel the need to be walked to school by me. :)

The girls heading off to find their classes.
