A horrible hilarious thing that happened today!

I told the big girls ( as I call K and her friend)  I would take them to the Grand opening of five below today! Ok truthfully I just love that store and used the excuse of taking them so I could go back with out seeming obsessed. LOL

I being nice invited Kevin to go with us. He being obsessed with the state of my van climbed into the back to clean it out while we waited on the girls.

The jump in as Kaylyn is opening the sliding door he screams 'Boo!" LOL It was so funny. (Yes we are the mean parents)  L (Kaylyn's friend) climbs in the front and closes the door. ( She gets the front seat in the afternoons. (Kaylyn has it in the mornings) We have a system. Kaylyn calmly says "L, open the door my hand is inside."

Kaylyn had grabbed the door frame to get in and L not realizing it shut the door. I start snapping and saying "open the door, Open the door" the door opens Kaylyn takes her hand flips it over looks at both side and just shrugs her shoulders and gets in! The door shut across the middle of her hand and only one finger is a tiny bit bruised.

So we are all laughing because Kay isn't hurt and is just so calm! It was greatness.

What a week!

Sheesh! This week has been nutso!
Starting with a labor day pool party. Soo fun! 

throw in 2 nights of cheer practice, meet the teacher night, and a pep rally to kick off the start of football season! 

Add in 3 orders to do and it makes for a busy busy week! 
I can't wait for next week! So far I have done awesome this school year with waking up at 6 every morning to get the girls up and ready for school. Seventh grade has been a new time of hair washing and drying and straightening every day. This coming from 6th grade where she didn't even want to wash it every day. She has really grown up this year. Hopefully we can keep it up. 

And I have been exercising  every morning. (well almost). A group of friends and I meet at the local park to walk roughly a mile each morning. then the kiddos get to play together for a bit. 
Not much time for Stash busting this week hopefully next week will be better. (but probably not) LOL My mom is have surgery on Monday so prayers are appreciated.Then she will be home for several weeks of rehab. 

I am ready to start this busy weekend Everyone enjoy your day!

 Kevin was on Vacation for the first 3 days of school so he was energetic and surprised the girls with cupcakes!
Awesome first day!

Then on Thursday was another first day. Kevin start at a new store on Thursday. It was something we have been praying would happen for awhile now. It is much closer to home so will save us quite a bit on gas. :)

Then on Friday Reace got sick. Strep. :( 

When my mom and I went shopping  Saturday we spotted this photo box. Reace is obsessed with all things mustache. No one knows why but she is.  It was the perfect thing to cheer her up!

 She decided she needed a ribbon to hold it closed. We measured around the box. and sewed velcro on to the overlapping ends then made a bow and Hot glued it on the top and added a small button with her name on it. She loves it. :)

Back to school

As the first day of school approaches I am remembering.......
This is first day of first grade I couldn't find a kinder one.
I remember dropping Kaylyn off for kindergarten. So nervous and excited. Then she ran and sat down and said bye momma! What no crying don't leave me anything! LOL

1st day of kinder and 3rd grade

With Reace I was worse since she was my baby and I was preg and hormonal LOL But then my computer crashed and I was more upset about that! LOL And I had gotten to know all the teachers since Kaylyn had been there a few years and they all knew Reace.

1st day of 2nd grade and 5th grade

With Paige I may just throw her out the door and drive off so they won't tell me she can't stay! LOL My little Diva girl!
