Is summer really almost over?

Wow, this summer has flown by so quickly. I can't believe it. In just a few weeks, my baby girl starts Kindergarten and my little buddy starts preschool.

Kylie is going to camp at Regents this week and getting to meet some of her new classmates! She seems to be excited about it and the kids are just adorable. We got her uniforms all picked up. Not the cutest, I have to admit. The whole "one size fits all" doesn't really work well in this family. So, our jumper looks kinda like a box. Oh well. Nothing a little button-moving can't fix. I happen to love the uniform idea. I didn't like it at first, but now that she is so stinkin' picky about what she wears, I am truly grateful! I would not want to have that discussion every day. Uggggh...

Jackson starts a two-day program at Bannockburn soon as well. He will go from 9:00-2:00 on Mondays and Wednesdays. I have no idea how that is going to work with the napping situation, but I guess we'll find out. I'm definitely concerned, but I'm hopeful he will adjust. He is getting to have some fun afternoon playdates with Grandpa Roy which he really loves. He gets out all the toys and spreads them everywhere and just plays and plays to his hearts content! It's great!

Kylie is working on her inner artist this summer! So far, we have created some great masterpieces! She painted a canvas print for her room that I just need to put the final touches on and a stepping stone for outside. I love watching her be creative. It's so amazing to see how her little mind works. Sometimes that little mind gets carried away, like a few weeks ago in church when she and her best bud Lainie decided that "poop" was the fun word for the day. So, she shows me this sweet little book she's made in sunday school that says Kylie's Helping Hands. In the book is all different ways Kylie can have helping hands. But, if you look closely, on every page you will find the word POOP! Geez. Mom and Dad were not nearly as amused as she was. I don't think she'll be doing that again any time soon.

Jackson's big ole molars are finally breaking through, thank goodness. He had both bottom and top ones come in at the same time. That was fun. He was such a grouch for a while there. He has this little shirt I like to put on him that says RUFF DAY with a paw print. Super cute!

My buds from BU and I are planning a trip to Baylor Homecoming this October. I'm excited to go back and see all the changes since we were there. It's been 10 years! Unbelievable! I hope to see some old friends while I'm there. It will surely be a great time!
