First Day of School 2016

Last week I had a crying breakdown when it hit me that everyone will be gone all day. 
Just realizing all the good times we've had over the years when they were younger and that, that period of my life is gone was sad.
But Seth helped me realize I was so sad because I loved it so much! And at least I had the last 12 years to look back on as a stay at home mom.
What a blessing. Despite all the financial hardship we've had I was always able to stay with my girls and I'm so thankful!
The twins were really excited but also a little nervous for all day school. Claire and Bella were super happy to be going back!
The day ended up going pretty fast because there are so many projects I have to get done.
And I am still able to have all 4 of them at the same school and walk up and back with them.

Last days of summer at Lagoon

With summer quickly coming to an end we hit Lagoon a beach one day and then Lagoon the next. We learned that going to Lagoon the night before school starts is the best night because no one is there.
Seth took the day off and we all had a great time!

Bre's Dentist Appointment

We took the kids to the dentist and no one had cavities except the one person who brushes and flosses every night! Poor Bre had 7! It was so sad. The dentist said she just has soft gums and there's nothing she did wrong. 
She was so brave.
Claire of course had fun waiting!

Amy's Work- Squatty Potty

I booked a fun job with Squatty Potty. It was a long day but fun since I've never worn a dress like that. The girls liked all the pictures and wished they could have been there. That would have been fun.

Boondocks fun!

Kelli and Nate went out of town and we got to have Hailee stay with us for a few days. We made the most of it. We went to Boondocks and played laser tag, mini golf and bowling! It was a great day! They all had so much fun!

Happy Birthday Grandpa!

For grandpa's birthday we celebrated at lagoon and lagoon a beach!
It was a great day! Not many grandpa's would spend the day at lagoon but he did and we all had a great time!
The girls are so lucky to have such a great grandpa!

Wonderful Day

Summer has just flown by!
I just wanted to document what a special time I had today with each of my kids. 
I was able to sit on the bunk bed with the twins and read.
In the afternoon Claire and I went on Pinterest and made some crafts together.
Then tonight I took Bella golfing so she could practice her putting and chipping. It was such a great day!
I love being a mom to these amazing girls!

Summer Day

I just wanted to journal about what a great day I had with the girls. Although Bella was gone, so that wasn't good. But the other 3 and I had a normal day. We ran errands, read books and went to a wedding shower.
I just love being with them.
Claire asked me "mom, do you like being a mom?". I said "Yes, I love it!" She said "Is it hard?" I said "Yes! Everyday, but it's the best thing ever!"
I'm excited for Bella to be here tomorrow.
Our family always feels incomplete when she's gone.
