1st Day, Hooray!

Summer is in our rear view mirror and we are full steam ahead into our school year routine. EK started back last week and the little two and I started back yesterday. Needless to say, we are exhausted at the end of the day and no one is having any trouble sleeping!!!  We are working hard to get in our rhythm so when we add in all our activities in a couple of weeks, we will be ready!

2017-2018 school year is going to be one for the books, no doubt! 

Meet the Teacher

We count down the days and then stalk to mail lady in order to find our teacher letters each year. My kids LOVE school and were so ready to get back into the swing of things with their new teachers and friends.

EK is in Mrs. Ruwe's class this year and she thinks she is grown bc they have flip top desks now. It doesn't take much to make us happy😉
We have the sweetest principal. Her name is Mrs. Smillie....seriously, could there be a better name for a principal???
I'm not sure who is more excited about Haley's new job....Haley or EK???!?!?!  Won't it be fun in two years when Haley gets to teach her? 
W was tickled to find out he will be a merry monkey this year for K5.

He has a major crush 😍 on  his sweet teacher Mrs. Jones. I asked him about her and he said she's "pretty as always!" 
Not sure how we missed Emma's letter picture. I think she was napping and then it got misplaced. Oops. #ThirdChildProblems
Anyway, she is excited to be a terrific turtle with Mrs. McLain.

It's going to be such a great year with these fabulous ladies!

Walker's Weekend with the Henshaw

Walker was fired up to finally get his weekend with Haley and Robert!  He got to give suggestions as to what they should do and he absolutely loved every minute!  They went to several different parks in the area. Haley truly is a gem because August in Mississippi is no joke!

They ate pizza and played at Bass Pro too.

Deep South Pops are a must in this crazy summer heat! 
The biggest highlight for W was getting to go to puppy training class with Moose. He adores his puppy cousin and he was fascinated by all thae tricks that Moose has learned....so much so that he has spent countless hours attempting to train his sister to perform tricks as well.

Thank you Henshaw family for giving my little guy such a special adventure!

Milkshakes, Mermaids and the Memphis Fire Museum

This weekend was our much anticipated trip to Memphis. EK was excited to show W and Em some of her favorite spots from her last visit. Seeing the Mighty Mississippi was a must.

We stopped at A. Schwab on Beale St. for some fun souvenirs. The pop gun has already provided a ton of entertainment!

The soda fountain was a fan favorite. 

After our tasty treats, it was time for the girls and guys to head out to our next adventures. We were so excited to see The Little Mermaid and it did not disappoint!  It was incredible! 

The boys had a big time at the Memphis Fire Museum. Walker has  talked non stop about all her learned and about the fact that he got to "drive" a real fire truck. 

Memphis was the perfect way to wrap up a really great summer!
