Peace Out to Another School Year

It's so true what they say, time flies, so be carful not to blink too hard. I love seeing these first and last day pics side by side.  The growth always stuns me bit and sends me into meltdown mode. I see them everyday, why do I feel like I am missing them physically grow?! My only indicators are the thinning of dimples in their cheeks and on their little hands.

We say peace out to 1st and 3rd grade today, and Maddux says peace out to life in general. I am always excited for the next step, but I trend lightly as it just means another dimple is fading.

1st and Last day of the 2016-2017 School Year

Micah! Happy 7th Birthday little man. With each passing year I think I am getting more anxious and excited to see what's in store for you! You have such a vibrant personality and you have still managed to keep your compassion towards others.

Seven things that you are into right now include (no particular order):
1. Maddux - You are obsessed with him! You love to kiss him, play with him, kiss him, hold him...kiss him. Whenever Daddy or I need an extra hand with him, you are ALWAYS there...and happy to do it! I love watching you love all over him, I am excited to see what your relationship with him will grow to be!
2.  Pokemon - Your birthday theme this year is in fact Pokemon and Nani isn't cutting any corners with creating you the perfect Pokemon cake (Charizard will be the topper).
3. Talking - Really, you love to talk... it even gets you in trouble at school sometimes.
4. Taekwondo - This January you will have been at it for a year and you are currently a Camo belt with an e…

She Turned 7!

SEVEN, she did it again... who does she think she is trying to get another year older on us. In all seriousness, she is SEVEN. Like, what happened to 5 and 6? Let me tell you what 7 looks like on my little Pripri...

Just a few things about this girl

1. Guess who her favorite person is...duh. Micah
2. She is soooo much more compassionate and caring than I could have ever imagined.
3. She might be 7, however her attitude screams teen! She is sensitive but oh so brave and she is never afraid to take on new adventures!
4. Her best friend is still, you guessed it, Maggie.
5. Right now she is playing softball (second season) and is having a ton of fun. Cheerleading is still on her brain, but for now, we will stick with this.
6. When she laughs, you can't help but laugh with her. Her laugh alone will make you light up.
7. Her favorite things include: Unicorns, Bear (her pink one), Unicorns, Mermaids, those fake glasses (see pic below), her American Girl Doll (pic above), Unicorns and to…

Hello & Goodbye to Sum•mer

sum·mer1 ˈsəmər/ noun 1.  the warmest season of the year, in the northern hemisphere from June to August and in the southern hemisphere from December to February.
I just wanted to give myself a second to really think about this thing called summer. Anyone else think this definition is just a little bit vague? It's that time of year where we get all excited to have ZERO schedule, endless electronics, the chance to travel and cram in all of the fun you planned for all year long. Then when this so called "summer" ends, you feel bamboozled, like someone just waved that 4th of July pie you went to that party to specifically eat, right in front of your face only to look...not eat. Like seriously, it was here, right in front of my face, and now... it's gone. Now, now we pack lunch every night, we get our homework in (which I don't even understand), we figure out which parent is going to be the taxi for the day, we actually have to make them shower and we look at the schedu…
