"First Day of School, First Day of School........"

Jacob had his first day of Kindergarten on Wednesday the 26th. He had a great first day and he is enjoying going to school. We made it through the first week, it was only three days but we still made it. I think that I did pretty well with him going to school. I only cried for a minute when he got on the bus and when it drove away. After he got on the bus we drove over to the school and watched him get off the bus from the street. He was so cute, just hopped right off and into the school he went. He's very excited because he has some friends in his class, one of our neighbors' and a boy that went to his preschool. He is really enjoying riding the bus. It's the cutest thing, when he comes home in the afternoon it's him, Lauren and Johnny (who is now in 1st grade) all sitting in the same seat together. He brought home some homework on Friday and had to do it as soon as we walked in the front door. I just hope he stays this ambitious about homework through the rest of his school career. Now onto the pictures.........

Peach Pickin'

First they rode on the Cow Train and then we were off to go Peach Pickin'...............

The end result a very heavy bag of peaches. They were oh so yummy though. We all had a great time, even though it was hotter than heck out. As soon as we were done picking we left for home. That afternoon Joe and I went out for our own little date night. We had dinner and then went and saw The new Harry Potter movie. We have been busy as usual, we did the peach picking actually a couple of weekends ago, right after my last post. I just thought I'd share the pics still even though it was two weeks ago. Gradually I will catch up with sharing all our adventures of the Summer. We have also since we to a Nats game, been to the pool twice with friends and done some running around school shopping. This weekend (tomorrow) we are taking the kids on a last minute surprise trip to the beach, just a one night stay. I have to be back a t work on Sunday. I will definitely have lots of pictures from that trip to share I am sure. Just a good note to end our Summer on, nothing like a beach trip even if it is short.

In other news, with Summer ending this means new beginnings......Our Big Boy Jacob is starting Kindergarten in less than a week. I can't believe it he has grown up so fast. He's super excited and can hardly wait. He is so happy that he gets to ride the bus to school. More to share on his adventures I am sure. Hope everyone is enjoying their last days of Summer. Until next time.......

Fun with Friends....

On Tuesday this week we went over to our friend's house and the kids had a great time playing on their big water slide. We finally had good enough weather for them to play out on the slide for a few hours. We had been trying to get them all together to play on the slide for a couple of weeks but everyday we had planned for it it ended up raining. Again our weird Summer weather. They all had such a good time, they really didn't want to stop but it was getting too hot and it was lunch time. Jenna even had a ball this time. When the kids first went on the slide on the fourth of July she only went down it twice. This time she went round and round we even had to tell her more than a few times to stop cutting in line in front of all the boys. On to the pictures.......Only a few, but a few is better than none at least I remembered my camera this time. : )
Jenna hitting the bottom... Jacob taking it a little sideways
Gotta love those legs, She flew down the slide so fast.
This weekend is going to be a busy weekend for us. I am sure I will have lots of pics to post after the weekends over and all settled down. Tomorrow we have a little running around to do in the early afternoon. Then tomorrow night we have our annual Light the Night kickoff party and it's at Nationals Stadium again. Go Nats! We will have our party and then onto the game, they are playing the Arizona Diamond Backs. On Saturday Jacob has his last Saturday game and then maybe Mommy and Daddy are going to get to go to the movies to see the new Harry Potter movie since we haven't got to see it yet and Nana's back home now. Nana has something fun planned for Jacob and Jenna on Sunday after church and Daddy will be going to see his friend Brandon race. I of course will be at work and it's going to be a early day for me...start time 6:30 a.m. oh and did I mention it's TAX FREE WEEKEND. Yeah it's going to be crazy busy at work this weekend. Needless to say we will all be busy and like I said I am sure I will have lots of pics to share. Have a great weekend all.........
