school girl

My baby girl started school this week! Even though I keep telling her she's not allowed to get any bigger, she keeps on doing it. She has one more week of summer school, and then a few weeks off, and then the year officially starts. We got home from Colorado late Monday night, and she started Tuesday. I was afraid she would be too tired, but she's been fine. The school highly recommended summer school for kindergartners that had never been to school before, because it lets them get the feel of school without all the chaos of a school full of kids. It made sense, but I was so nervous for her. Annaleigh can be a little dramatic, and I didn't know what we would do if she hated it. Good news is she LOVES it. Super loves it. Makes me so happy. :) She comes home and tells us the things she said, and cracks us up. I need to get a video of how she talks to her teacher. She's a nut. On the first day of school she told us that the kids didn't like her shirt (it says "best big sister in the world") but then she showed me the song and dance that goes with it, and I kinda understood why. ;)



 
And because it's just so cute, as Annaleigh went into her class, Sam (who's not in summer school) says, "Annaleigh's only in kindergarten, so she still thinks life is all about having fun." Lol, um okay Mr. Eight-Going-On-Thirty! (And btw, I asked him what life is really about, and he said hard work and doing good things.)

Vacation, all I...

never want to do again until Owen is in middle school. Haha, seriously though, two weeks in Colorado was about nine days too long. Too long to be away from home and stuck in a hotel room with three kids. We spent the first three days in Estes Park, one day in Denver, and the rest in Colorado Springs. The bright side is, it scratched our vacation itch and we don't plan on going anywhere else while we're in Nebraska. Also made us thank the military for a little distance from family, but that's a story that shall not be told here, lol! Joel also got Lasik done (the reason our vacation was so long). Anyways, now that it's over I'm going to focus on the highlights and try to forget Sam throwing up on Annaleigh, and the new phobia that created in her. ;)



Owen's first time ever seeing mountains. Poor boy was so scared and kept saying "monsters." The picture on the right is the canyon we were driving through at the time.

moose!
 
hiking with this handsome man. :)
 
 this was the most beautiful scenery I've ever seen. It's hard to tell, but by the river there were dozens of elk. Absolutely beautiful!
best donut place EVER. We may have gone every morning we were in Estes Park. Raspberry fritters are the perfect way to start a day. Mmmmm....

 
Alberta Falls
 
 
still plenty of snow in June!
