2010 Photo Adventure

I wanted to take the kids photos for this year. I have been playing around with my camera and decided that Reed needed to sleep (he had worked all night and NEEDED some REAL sleep) so, I took the kids to take their pictures for the year. We spent the morning finding the poppy field. We almost didn't find it because it was almost done blooming. So, we got a few pictures by the last remaining beautiful poppies. Love them!
So much fun! We did a little adventuring and found a beautiful field of purple flowers. So pretty!
Then I realized we were close (within 15 minute drive) to some places that I had seen on studio 5 as great walls to take photos by and we were feeling adventurous. The kids did really good and were great sports at the different places. Everytime we got back in the car, the kids continued their "Go, FISH" game so, they were happy to travel for a few minutes to the next location. It was SO fun to find these cool places!
My new favorite photo of the kids!
After we were done being adventurous that morning we stopped by Artic Circle and got chicken nuggets and ice cream. The kids were SO good (doesn't always happen for photos) and they were thrilled that we got ice cream for the little drive home. It was fun and I got some really great photos and Reed got some much needed sleep. Win-Win situation! Grandma' can let me know which ones you want because I know I'll be hearing from you.....I'll print them for ya or send them to your email. Just let me know.
Thanks kids for a fun, memorable were great! Love ya!

First Day of School

I can't believe it's time for school to start already! Isaac is starting 2nd grade and Abbie in Kindergarten.
I can't believe you are big enough to start Kindergarten!
Out of everything we bought for school clothes Abbie liked this pair of white jean pants. She talked me into buying them and that is what she told me for weeks that she wanted to wear her first day of school and she did.
Isaac and Abbie were excited to go to school together. They are great little buddies and Isaac held her hand as they went into the building by themselves on the second day of school. Such a great big brother!
We found Isaac's locker where he put his book bag and then found his desk that already had a book waiting for him to read. The teacher let them pick out the color of pencil box and a sharpener for their desk. Then they got to read quietly while they waited for school to start. His teacher is big into reading...Yeah, Isaac loves to read!!
After we dropped Isaac off, we went to Kindergarten for orientation. Abbie was able to meet the teacher and kids in their class. They got their first homework book with new pencils. Abbie choose a green pencil, her favorite color!
Then we got to take her home with us. Yeah, one more day til' we have to cry as she walks into the school by herself. I just didn't expect this day to come so soon. We had to park a little bit away so Dad carried her on his shoulders back to the car. Kaden was able to come with us and he was really excited to see what he will get to do next year. All-in-all a great first day of school. Isaac loves his teacher and is excited to go again today. Abbie walked into school and was such a brave little one, not scared at all. I think this will be another great year of school. I just can't believe that they are this old already!
