5 year check up

Sisters, you are growing!!

Riley                                                                      Vivian
38 lbs. 9.6 oz        36%                                           38 lbs. 12.8 oz       37%
43 inches              46%                                           43.25 inches           54%
BMI    14.7           35%                                           BMI  14.6              32%

It always makes me chuckle that Vivian is 'bigger'.  I feel like Riley is but she's not.  And Riley was 'bigger' at birth so it's just funny to me.

They were big, brave girls talking to the doctor.  They answered all the questions, passed their hearing and vision tests, and survived their 2 shots they needed.  A lot of tears for a few minutes, but nothing stickers couldn't fix.

Summer camp is already almost half way over.  We are going to WV for Weaver Family vacation next Friday July 5th (Ruby's 7th birthday).

When my thoughts are more clear I'll write of Grandma Fellure's passing. It still doesn't seem real and just can't even think about her without crying. I miss her so much.

I say this everytime...

But where did the time go?

All of a sudden it's mid April and I've registered the girls for kindergarten, Luke is 6 weeks away from being a 2nd grader, we are on full baseball schedule, and I don't see us slowing down anytime soon.

Class of 2032

We had an awesome October with so many fun Fall activities!  Class parties, Trunk or Treat at Venture church, hayrides at the Weaver Pumpkin party, Dull's Farm fun with the Twins group, neighborhood parties and of course, trick or treating! 
These kids really figured out how fun Halloween was this year and all the candy you can get!! Just by wearing a costume.  I admit, Halloween is not a big favorite of mine, but the kids were super excited. I even got in on the action as Justin Timberlake's 'Bring it on down to Omletteville' character.  Silly.

Slow down time!!!!!!!!!!

I honestly cannot believe it's October!!
Kids are back in the swing of things for school.  We have their fall parties tomorrow.  Saturday we are going to Dull's Farm for our twins group Pumpkin Party. We went there in spring for the Easter party and it was amazing.  Looking forward to all the fun. 
And then the next 2 weeks we are off for fall break.  But I don't know how much a break it will be!!
There are birthday parties, school events, trying to work out, TKD, work, Purdue football, basketball season around the corner, neighborhood parties and just feels like we are constantly on the go.  Between GDC, Twins group,neighbors, my 'friends', there is always something going on.  Which is nice but sometimes can feel a little overwhelming.
But here are their cute school pics!! First Grade and Pre-K.  We had the girls' parent-teacher conferences yesterday, tonight we have Luke's.  Nothing but good things for the girls.  They started speech last month (Dem are dood dirls) and working with them stopping their thumb sucking and controlling emotions.  All and all very sweet but can be very feisty.

1st day of 1st grade!!

Luke had a great first day of first grade!  He got Mrs. Wood this year and from all accounts, sounds like she is fantastic.  And she's a Boilermaker...even better! A couple of girls from his K class are in there, but other than that, it's all new.  I have no doubt he'll do great. 
On the night of the Ice Cream Social it was great to have a mini reunion with all his former classmates (though we see a majority of them regularly over the summer)  and Mr. Dicken, but also exciting to see the new fun and excitement 1st grade will bring.
Such a big boy!! So proud of his sweetness, eagerness to perform, and way his little brain thinks.

Luke's last day of camp!

He's so excited to be starting 1st grade on Wednesday!  Although he had good friends and Goddard was great, I think he was bored and is excited to get back to 'real' school.  Today was carnival day and can tell how excited he is.  And today he tests for yellow belt for TKD. Big Day!
