Madelyn: 5 1/2 Years Old


Madelyn girl,

Today you are 5 1/2 years old!  You woke up this morning so excited knowing you're a little bit older.  Then reminded us you are close to being 6.  Oh girly, stop growing kid.

Tonight we had cookie cake for your half birthday party.  You loved it!

You weigh 40 lbs and are 42.5 in tall
Wearing size 5t tops, pants and dresses.  Size 10/11 in shoes.  Your favorite clothes are still dresses, skirts and cute shoes.
Your favorite foods are pizza, mac and cheese, fruit, noodles and cheese, carrots and desserts of any kind.
Going down at night around 7 and wake up in the morning at 7 to get ready for Kindergarten.  You sometimes lay down for a rest on Wednesdays after school, before Team Kid and also on Saturdays and Sundays.

Started kindergarten about a month ago and enjoy it so so much!  Your favorite parts are recess and lunch time.  Your teacher says you soak things in like a sponge and want to continually learn everything she throws at you.  We're so proud of you baby girl.
Some of your favorite activities are dancing, swimming, bike riding, soccer, jumping on the trampoline, eating, playing with your brother, coloring and watching shows.

Still taking ballet and tap and are such a little performer.  You also started soccer a few weeks ago.  You and Theo get to play on the same team which you both are loving.

We are so in love with you sweet pea.  Happy half birthday!







Theodore: First Day of Preschool


Bubba boy's first day of preschool was last week.  He's been so excited to get started!  We're going to a different school this fall and Theo knows a few kids in his class.  We took him in Tuesday morning and he walked in like he owned the place.  Went straight to the blocks and started building.  No tears, nothing.  So proud of this kid.  He's been having some trouble going in places without sis, but last week he was so big.  Oh this boy has my heart.

Last Days of Summer


This is how we spent our last days of summer.......

First UT Game


So apparently college football is a big deal around here.  It was in Arkansas where we met as well, but neither one of us were very into it.  Some friends of ours invited us to the first UT game last Thursday night.  I borrowed a shirt from a friend because I haven't found one I really like yet.  It was white...I can't do all orange yet.  Maybe one day...we'll see ha! 
It was a fun game!  The football team didn't play very well, but the band sure did.  Tim loved watching the drumline and the halftime show.  We're hoping to take the kids to a game this season if it all works out.  Thanks for the invite John and Ashley!
