Kindergarten, Middle School & High School

Kingston takes on Kindergarten and has rocked it so far! #4 was ready, he loves all things art and social so Mrs.Sandmann and Miss Smith will be right up his alley this year:)

Going their separate ways, Jude staying at the elementary and Monroe going to middle school.

 State street bus riders first day of school pic, riding the bus builds character right?

Back to school night, 9th grade center (our old middle school), the best thing about it is they are only there for one year:)

Bigger and getting bigger than me:(

I love the young adults they are becoming, most of the time;)

more state street bestie

Monroe has a great group of girls in her grade, thankful for this!

Jude has to be the helper this year with Kingston, love that we got Mrs.Bammes, I think this will be a great year for 4th grade!

August Already?!

 Well so much for the summer bucket list because there wasn't much checked off, no vacations, no worlds of fun or schlitterbahn for my kids. No mom guilt here because they spent plenty of time hanging out poolside or just hanging out with friends and family.

 Pontoon boat with Angie & Eddie a must every summer!

 My friend happens to have the best outdoor pool entertaining area ever where this many adults and kids can actually have a great time all in the same place, thank you Crystal!

 the middles got to go to Branson with my sisters and parents for a long weekend, we love our cousin time!

 jumping for joy for middle school bound!

We made it to the Brews and Blues, our first Arts in the Park event of the summer, it was a great time!

Xander went to Wichita with a few friends to celebrate Tysen's birthday, how cool is this soda shop in his Grandma's basement, I want to have one of these when I am a grandma!

all of those swimming lessons we missed really paid off;)

So long summer sports

Posted a month late but the Stix got together for their end of season party at Northview Pool, we have wrapped up summer sports and already started soccer practice.

No sleeping in for my kids this summer easy to get back on a school schedule when he woke up early for breakfast club each morning in June.

Kingston enjoyed the waterslides at the swim party too:)

License to Drive

It is true, Xander passed Little Apple Driving School and got his Learner's Permit, thankfully he got some practice in on the farm where there aren't as many things to run into:)

The suburban isn't the best first car to be driving around but he has done pretty well and even took us through Jimmy John's last weekend

Unrelated to driving but Xander earned top performer at the Marlins Banquet which I didn't attend because I am a crier and they had to say goodbye to Coach Rob who took a job in Denver, who could blame him. He has been so awesome for Xander. so thankful for the last few years we have had him.
