First Day of School

Today was Laynie’s first day of school…she was so excited, not nervous at all!  I think Riley and Peyton miss her though, they don’t start school until next week.  Here are some pictures from this morning -

I’m trying to be better about posting more often…we’ll see how it goes!  I start school tomorrow morning and Riley and Peyton start next week – so more pictures will be coming!  Not of my first day, just of the girls :)

The summer is almost over, the girls (and me) start school next week! We’ve had a good time, but I’ve been an awful blogger!! So I’ll attempt to get caught up and try my best to keep up on it (I think you’ve all heard that song before)…

Back in July we went on a cruise with both my parents and Keith’s parents. It was such a great time! Laynie cried for a week afterwards that she missed the boat! Here are some (meaning a lot) of pics from it!

Laynie went rock climbing, and made it all the way to the top on the first try…I tried it as well. And made it about 2 feet up. We met some dolphins, went to some beautiful beaches, drank Red Stripe in Jamaica (and Grand Cayman)…it was wonderful. I can’t wait to go on another cruise in the future.

We also went to the beach a lot…as you know my girls are beach bums and would live there if given the choice! We went this morning and the weather was perfect! It wasn’t even too hot!

Peyton loved to be pulled around by Riley on the body board…she tried pulling Riley around too. I love how wonderfully they get along at the beach. There’s no fighting, arguing, telling on each other…it’s bliss.

We also met a family from the East Coast of Florida in Orlando for a weekend. I met Shannon when she emailed me after finding out her 3-year old son has Pseudochondroplasia. They have 3 kids as well, and it was great to meet them. I didn’t get any really good pics, I think keeping up with 6 kids at a pool made it difficult! Laynie got along great with their older son, Walker. When we went to dinner they even sat at one end of the table together like a date :) We had such a great time, and we hope to get to get together with them again soon! I did get a great picture of Laynie with Walker:

I’ll put one last album of pics, these are just a bunch from the rest of the summer…the pool, Disney, more Disney :) It was a great summer, but I’m ready for school to start! I know it’s going to be overwhelming with me starting as well, but I’m anxious to get into a routine. And I’m also hoping I’m not getting too in over my head! Hope everyone enjoyed the pictures…I’ll try to update more often so I don’t have to do actual albums and can just post a few pics!!


PS...I'm still learning with livewriter, so I apologize for the sideways pics...I'm workin on it :)
