Little Girl, Big Bed

That’s my three-year old in a queen bed.  It wasn’t the plan at all.  My plan was to purchase Linlee a loft bed for her birthday (make better use of the space in her small room) and give her very cute twin bed to Holly.  Unfortunately, shortly after I posted how well Holly was doing …

Autumn!

Here comes my favorite time of year.  Whoohoo! And here are just a few pictures of my two cuties before Holly’s soccer class… Holly had so much fun at her second soccer class.  She kicks the ball like a pro.  The only little hiccup is that she has a tendency to pick the ball up …

Mommy’s Little Helper

Holly has made me work very hard the past three years.  Very hard.  However, I think I might have a little partner in this family who is eventually going to be a big help!  On our way to The Little Gym on Tuesday, we were pulling out of the driveway when Holly suddenly asked, “Mommy, …

Homework

Linlee has rarely had much homework in the past.  I’m thankful because I really don’t know how mothers of more than one child manage it.  Linlee and I sat down at the kitchen table to work on her assignments the other day and immediately Holly pulled up a stool and inserted herself into the process. …

Holly plays soccer!

Our little athlete, ready to go!  Holly has been talking about getting to play soccer this week as much as she’s been talking about going to school.  Very excited!  She says, “I play soccer with my friends and I win!”  How on earth she knows that soccer is a competitive game with “winning and losing” …

First week report…

It’s been beastly hot here the last few days, but this is how my children dress in the heat.  Linlee is forever Cinderella (although I do notice that she skipped the white gloves) and Holly snuck one of Linlee’s dresses out her closet (already stealing sister’s clothes at age three!) and accessorized with a winter …

First Day of Preschool

Here she is, my beautiful preschooler!  She has been so excited to start school.  Then she threw me for a loop this morning by announcing that she was too little to go to school today and she would go when she was bigger.  Ack!  But she got over her small case of nerves and was …

Party time! Rachel turns 9!

Anne did a fabulous job of creating the perfect luau party for the birthday girl. How I wish Rachel had turned around in the picture above! Holly playing luau bingo (the girls really enjoyed this!): Time for the pinata! For some reason, this activity really tickled Linlee’s funny bone.  (It took a daddy to finally …

First day of 3rd grade – hooray!

Notice the red head band!  Linlee has been choosing blue headbands for a couple of years now.  Over the summer she pretty much stopped wearing them, but now that school has started, she is assigning a color to each season.  Apparently red is for fall. This year Linlee has the same teacher as last year …
