First Day of School 2013

Hard to believe another year is here. 
They need to stop growing....NOW!

This year Gauge heads to his last year of Pre-K
It's his last year in the building that he's been in since he was 6 weeks old.
Such a bittersweet time.


So hard to believe this is his last year in this building! Been here since he was 6 weeks old. Where has the time gone!? :( #BackToSchool

and Grace to 2nd Grade. 
She is so amazingly smart. I can't wait to see her enjoy another
year of learning.


I'm so thankful that Grace has amazing cousins that she rides the bus with every day! 
She simply adores them and it makes this Mama's heart smile!

Off to the county fair....

When you live in a small rural community, the county fair is a much anticipated event. 
It's a time to

:: eat all kinds of fried food ::
:: visit the diary barn for your nightly dose of butter pecan ice cream ::

:: stroll through the barns to see the livestock ::
:: watch crazy sports like Rough Truck and Demolition Derby ::
::  ride scary rides ::

:: get your face painted ::
:: and spend time with cousins and grandparents ::

This year Grace was especially excited because she got to show her oldest cousin's pig in the open show. She wore her best cowgirl jeans, plaid shirt and cowgirl boots borrow from another cousin.

I was so proud of her! She wasn't intimidated by that pig at all. She now proudly displays her beautiful green and white participant ribbon in her bedroom.



She is so excited to try her hand at 4H when she turns 9. There has been much debate about what type of animal she will take. Bunny, Duck, Goat.....we shall see!
