Pumpkin Patch

Every year around Halloween we head to the pumpkin patch. It's a really fun one with lots of pumpkins to choose from. Each one of the kids chose their own pumpkin to take home with us. We even came home with a picture of David and I together (a rare event!) thanks to an impromptu shot by Summer.

This morning Summer said, "mom, those flowers are SUPER pretty!" I said to her, "do you want to see something even prettier!?" Of course she nodded yes and I lead her straight to her reflection in the bathroom mirror where she started beaming. I sure love my sweet Summer-pie.

This is one of my favorite pictures I took right after school pick-up yesterday. One of the happiest things about our move to the "city" is the opportunity to bike to school, right in our neighborhood.

Forrest & Summer

This evening I let the kids skip swim practice (shhh... don't tell the coach). We got snoballs at Pelican's and then sat on this lifeguard stand and watched the huge waves crashing on the sand. The ocean was beautiful today but this view was by far my favorite. I love these two with my whole heart.

Forrest: First Day of 2nd Grade

Oh boy, can you tell Forrest is excited about being in 2nd grade?! He searched high and low for the perfect backpack. Score! He checked the computer daily tracking its arrival. So cute.
He loves his new teacher and class. I am so happy that they're happy, that's all that matters.

Summer: First Day of 4th Grade

I can't believe my Summer is in 4th grade!!! She loves her new school, teacher and is making new friends in her class. This year she told me she had to get a BIG backpack because in 4th grade that's when you have lots of homework and BIG books. I love this girl so much.

Tooth Fairy

Forrest is losing teeth faster than he can grow them back. His cute smile is full of holes. Every lost tooth is just as exciting as the first for him. He screams with excitement and then runs and gets our tooth fairy pillow. That little hole you see in the pillow is where they put their little teeth before tucking it under their pillow before bed. These 2 kids are at such a magical stage right now. It feels like I'm living with little cartoon characters. The best!
