First Day of School 2016

School started today for the big boys at Davis. This is the first year where all 4 of our kids will be in school.
Colt is in 3rd grade and has Ms. Hafen for a teacher. He said he liked her and was excited to see his friends again.
Jax is in 1st grade and has Mrs. Schneidmiller this year (Colt had her in 1st grade) he was not at all excited about school starting but at dinner tonight when we were playing high-low he said his high was getting to go to school so I think we are off to a good start!
Off to Davis Elementary. If all goes as planned this will be the boys last year at Davis, we are hoping to have our house built by next fall and that will put them in a new school next year.
These two will start at Mustard Seed after Labor Day.
I sure love these kids!

Happy 3rd Birthday Colbi Lyn!

 Today our baby girl turns 3. Hard to believe how fast time has gone. This girl is a fire cracker, she has quite the personality and most days is pretty fun to have around. She loves her brothers,  riding her bike, playing legos, making us food and coffee in her kitchen, reading books and talking. She really really loves talking! It is amazing how many words she can say in a day.  She tries to keep up with the big boys and somehow managed to move into their bedroom about 8 months ago and never left. She insists on sleeping with them and playing with them all the time. They are for the most part very patient and kind with her but she does love to push their limits at times.
We had an early birthday party for Colbi with her cousins Evie (4) and Nora (2) at Andy and Kenzie's house. We had a pool party and the kids had fun swimming all night long!
 On her birthday we did the traditional morning birthday gifts from Dave and I along with bread dough pudding.
 She helped me make her birthday cake and cupcakes. Lemon with cream cheese frosting!
 I made pizza and salad for dinner and Papa and DiDi joined in on the fun.
Happy Birthday Colbi Lyn!
Colt made her the number 3 out of legos because she said she wanted a ninja turtle cake so the boys came up with a couple ninja turtle lego figurines for decorations.

Psalm 139:13-14 
 For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 
 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
