1st Day of Kindergarten

First day of kindergarten was an emotional day for me, not Isabelle. She was such a big girl. I was full of so many emotions excitement, anxiety, sadness, but most of joy. My little girl is growing up to be a wonderful person. Isabelle said to me " When are you going to leave so I can learn something." It almost broke my heart then I realized I want her to be an independent girl, so this was a good thing. I give her a kiss and leave and cry all the way to the car. I just think these last five years have went by so fast before I know it she will be graduating high school and getting married. Anyway, here are the pictures from her first day. I know everyone has been waiting.

Silly things...

On Thursday night Isabelle and I stayed up watching the Olympics mainly the gymnastics. Isabelle was very interested in all of it. Friday morning she gets on her leotard, get a jacket because that is what they did, and a backpack( if you watched they would put their backpack on to go to the next event. Isabelle got some stickers to put around her wrist and fingers and on her toes and ankles just like the gymnasts do. It was all very interesting to me to see how wild her imagination was. Isabelle would perform her routine and then want me to say "Isabelle stuck that landing." I love the creativity she has to entertain herself. She was busy with this all day.

On another note Hasten's new thing is to put big gobs of toilet paper in the toilet or small toys. He thinks it is hilarious and I don't!

Being Spontaneous!!!

On Monday we went to the Aquauirm in Jenks. The kids had a blast!! Hasten keep saying "ohooo" and pointing at everything.

The stingrays in this picture would jump up on to the side on the tank. It was the craziest thing.

On Tuesday we went to Turner Falls to have a picnic and go swimming. I hadn't been to Turner Falls in a long time. Walking on the rocks is very hard and it hurts your feet. Overall it was fun. From there we went to Grapevine Mills Outlet mall to shop a little and eat at the Rainforest Cafe. The kids loved all the animals making noise and moving around. Our next stop was the Yankees vs. Rangers game. It was the first baseball game for both the kids. We didn't know what to expect from either one of them, but they loved it. Isabelle would yell for the Yankees. The people around us didn't appreciate it, but we thought it was funny. Hasten would just point at everything.

Yikes the croc bite me!!!
I love this picture!
Our little mini vacation was a blast. Two days well spent with our family. Can't believe summer is almost over.

Hasten attempting to eat spaghetti by himself. I love the look on his face. He thinks he is a big boy and wants to do everything that his sister does. Here is picture of Hasten's room after we got all the tin signs up. I love it!!
