1st Days...

Yesterday we had some more 1st days...Rylie's 1st day of 2nd grade and Madison's 1st day of Pre-K! They both were so excited and both did great! Rylie was a little nervous once we got in the school but she did great! She came home loving it! Madison did great too! Last year we had some major issues with separation anxiety but this year she was such a big girl!

Prayers of Intercession

Yesterday morning, Tim and I received a call from a friend of ours (who also goes to our church), letting us know that her husband and son were in a very serious car accident. We didn't know many details at first, but found out later that their son, Gabe, walked away from the accident with slightly bruised ribs. Her husband, Scott, on the other hand has much more serious injuries. We are thankful that Scott is alive but are asking all of our friends to pray for him and his family during this difficult time. There is a caringbridge site set up for them now where you can get more details on what is going on because the details are constantly changing. Thank you!

A day with some friends

We recently went to the Pacific Science Center with some of our great friends! It was a crazy, fun-filled, day with lots of fits thrown in between! It was a pretty crazy day so I didn't get a many pictures but here are a few of the ones I did get...

Rylie & Malia in a giant caterpillar

A bunch of the kids in some kind of shuttle thing (I honestly don't even remember what it was but they loved it!)

Most of the kids in the dinosaur footprint

Outside the Science Center there is a beautiful open area with this fountain in the middle of it. It is beautiful and they have the water "choreographed" to the music that is also playing!

At one point the water shot up in the air so high! It was amazing!

Our new "baby"

We have a new addition to the family...and it's a boy! The girls have been wanting a puppy for a long time...what little kid doesn't want one! My rule has always been no more pets until everyone in the house was potty trained. So...Taitlyn finally got potty trained. I still wasn't planning on it happening any time soon, but we visited one of our local pet shops one night just for fun and fell in love with this puppy...a 2 month old cockapoo who we named Chester!
