Beginning of a New Chapter

Today is the first official day of school at the girls new school.  Although they have been here for three weeks, it was the end of the school year.  Today they start with Ms. Virginia, Ms. Serena and Ms. Hannah as their new teachers.  We are really excited about this school year, first they are "officially" in preschool K2 as they call it.  From what I understand one of their teachers know Spanish so she will be incorporating that into the daily lessons.  Here are the girls on their official first day of school!

The Dog Days Are Over

Where did summer go?  It seems like just yesterday that we were wishing for warm weather and now it's gone.  Well not the warm weather.  The long days will soon be ending, the pool time is all but over.  Football season is right around the corner, fall will follow suit and the new school year will start up at a new location.  More to come on that.

We didn't do much this summer, no special vacations.  We did travel to Sebastian for Memorial Day.  We stayed around the house for July 4th.  We played, we swam, we made memories and are looking forward to next summer.   We also played a lot of dress-up.

We are going to do a family vacation, don't yet know when or where, but it will be fun no matter where we go!

New Artwork

Last year one of my CB Mamas posted about the great art project where you tape out a name and then have the kids finger paint over it.  Once the paint dries, you remove the tape and the name is still there.  I've been working up the nerve to do this last weekend.  I got the canvas' from Hobby Lobby for $7 and we had the finger paint.  It was so much fun and I think they turned out great. 

Getting everything ready

Lily was not sure of what was going on.

Emma was ready to go.

Still a little apprehensive, but ready to give it a try.
Waiting for it to dry.  I love the handprint.

Emma really really liked to paint.

We will definitely do this again.  A fun time was had by all.  Maybe next time we will get pictures of the actual process.
