First Day of seperate classrooms!


Big day. Huge. I have been thinking of this day for months.
They did great and I'm so proud of them.
They are in seperate classrooms for the first time and seem to be handling it well. They enjoyed trying to find each other and really like their teachers. I'm hopeful for a great year!

Fun time with Grandpa Bill and Grandma Carol



They took the girls to build their first Build A Bear. Julia made a blue bear named Beary and Jocelyn made a bunny named Hop. They LOVE them.

So much fun swimming in the pool.

We had a wonderful time together and hope they come back soon. Nothing is greater than grandparents.

Dance Recital: Just a Spoon Full of Sugar


The girls danced jazz to Just a Spoon Full of Sugar from Mary Poppins. They did such a good job. Dance has been a great experience; we will definitely be signing up again this fall.

Dance Recital: Baby mine


Where do I start?!
Adorable. Beautiful. Charming. Precious.
They danced ballet to Baby Mine from Dumbo. I had to put my camera down for recital night and they brought tears to my eyes. It was WONDERFUL.

Huntsville State Park

collecting "nature" in their buckets

Their pet caterpillar Callie. They carried her around in their bucket for a day and half, panicked when she got out and overjoyed when they found her. They pet her---which is a big deal for these two. There little hearts broke to leave her behind, slightly relieved to find her a friend before departure.

Yup, we saw an alligator in there. Trash ripped open in the middle of the night by a raccoon, armadillos by the campfire, woodpeckers, blue jays and cardinals. Even a bunny on our way. Not to mention crazy scaredy squirrels trying to steal our food.

Bribed by licorice they both touched an alligator--back and belly.

First canoe ride...fascinated by the lily pads.

Sisterly love. I hope they remember these days just as I do with my awesome sister.

"Look Mom, I'm dirty."
I love camping...
