Third Grade Already?

Today was Katie's first day of third grade. I seriously can not believe that she is in the third grade already. Her teacher this year is Mrs. Honderich and she is the best teacher! Katie also has a great class and knows alot of her classmates already. This year's first day outfit came from a little boutique in East Texas. I went shopping with my friends and saw it and thought of Katie right away. I think the outfit is very "Sharpay" from High School Musical. Here are some pictures from this morning.

Lakehouse Fun

Katie and I were invited to spend the night at the lake with the Damaske family on Friday night. We had so much fun. The weather started off rather rough....major rain all the way there...lots of water in the jeep (but that's another story). However, after a couple of hours the clouds moved off and we had a fun time on the boat enjoying the great weather. The kids had a blast riding on the water torpedo and the tube. Katie found a praying mantis (her fav bug) and provided everyone with lots of entertainment with it. After that we went for a ride on the golf cart and we saw a huge praying mantis...ok so it wasn't real but cool anyway! We had yummy grilled chicken for dinner and made smores out by the fire for dessert. Lots and lots of pictures were taken and it was so hard to pick the best here are alot of pictures.

Still Working On It

So I'm sorry that I have yet to post the circus pictures. I am still working on them. I didn't take my good camera...big mistake. I only took the little Nikon and the pictures were horrible because I couldn't really change alot of settings so they are dark and grainy! Drives me crazy. I have also been busy trying to get a job and I did!!! I am going to be working at Griffin Middle School in The Colony as an aide. Doesn't pay much but I am using it as a stepping stone this year to hopefully get my own classroom next year. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Anyway, Katie and I are going to the lake this weekend with Shay and the kids. Should be loads of fun and I am taking my good camera for lots of pictures. I also hope to do some improvements with the blog. Check out my new slideshow to the right of some of my favorite photos!!!

Just Pictures

So no big post here....just decided to put up some pictures that I have taken lately. I didn't really even pick up my camera for almost a month! I know some of you can't believe it but I just didn't feel like any picture I would have taken would have been good. I'm back now though! Katie and I are going to the circus tonight so be sure to look for a fun filled post tomorrow.

Girl Fun

What a fun day we had today. Katie had a playdate with her friend Haley from dancing. It was so great to see her again. We haven't seen her in so long! We had lunch at The Purple Cow and then the girls went swimming. Harrison (Haley's little bro) and Becky (Haley's mom) came over and joined us out by the pool. It was so good to hang out with friends that we haven't seen in a while. The fun is still continuing as Katie got the invite to spend the night.

The girls being crazy!

High Diving Katie

On Saturday Katie and I went to the Rosemeade Rec pool for Naomi's second birthday party.  What an awesome place to have a party!  That Naomi is just the cutest little thing.  While there Katie decided that she was going to jump off the high dive!!!  I couldn't believe how brave she was was AWESOME.  Here are the pictures to prove that she did it!!
