Super Soccer STAR!!!

Dorothy started playing soccer and LOVES it!!!  She does not get her athletic gene from me (I am the world's worst athlete!)  She scored the first goal in the game and can't wait for the next one!
My little soccer star!

It started to rain just as the game was ending!  Whew!

Off to school!!

Dorothy started 1st grade today (sniffle, sniffle) it's hard to see her grow up so fast!  She planned her outfit and wanted to look like a 'rockstar' with her skull leggings.  We even did her hair funky!  She is soooo happy to go to school and is in the same class as her cousin Lillian! 
All dressed up and ready!

Lots of outfit pix, what do you expect from girl whose mom write a fashion blog!

Hugs and kisses goodbye!
Preston had to get his backpack on too, even though he does not start pre-school till next week!

Off to school!

With her (hideous) iCarly backpack!

They all had to copy sister and put their new school shoes on too!!!  Yes, Dorothy and Violet have the same shoes!

End of summer!

We ended summer with a bang!!!  Fun in the sun, and lots of play time with cousins!!
At the pool with cousins!!!

This is what I found yesterday morning....
That is one of the sweetest thing I have ever seen!!!

The best place for kids to get lost!

Allison and I thought that before school started we should take the kids to the dinosaur museum at Thanksgiving point.  The kids had a BLAST, Allison and I had anxiety the entire time because (mainly) Pressy and a few others kept getting lost (or running off rather!)  It was fun but I think next time I will bring the child leash!
In front of a fossil

The two Violet babysitters!

Look we FINALLY found Pressy!!! 

Playing in the sand and water!

A little boys dream!

Can you see the purse by Dorothy's feet?  She is so much like her mom!

AHHHHH shark!!!  Pressy is still telling me how he does not want to go into the sharks mouth and would not go near it for a picture!

Having so much fun!

Digging in the sand to uncover bones!

This is the Pressy saying "cheese" he does that face and looks away whenever I try and take a picture!!!  Oh the joys of a three year old!

We had a wonderful day and the kids are still talking about how much they loved it!
