My girls

I really wanted some pictures of my girls together...something nice to remember this stage with. I have lots of little iphone snaps but I wanted something more put together. But once again....baby blues...postpartum hormones...emotions of all sorts all over the place. So the only way to get this done was to wing it on a day when the girls were happy, Nora was cooperating and I was not crying. And the perfect day came up thank goodness last month. So I dug through their closets, found some outfits that would work and we quickly ran down to the river to take some pictures. Oh man...I'm so in love with these girls. Can they honestly get any more perfect???

First Day of School

And here we are...back in School! The girls had lots of fun on their first day. Paige is in Grade 1 this year...which is always a hard transition for me. Suddenly I don't feel like their main source of parenting/child rearing...now they spend more time per day with their teacher than they do with me!! Ahh....but it always works out. And Paige sure loves her teacher and is soooooo thankful to be in her best friend Ava's class again! Lucky girl! Hailey's in grade three!! What?? How is she that old? Seriously! She's such a smart confident little girl that I have no worries about her. She got seperated form her best friend Ava (yep they both have Ava's) this year....but was super excited to see her longtime friend Eden in her class again for the first time since preschool! She has a really fun energetic teacher and I know will excel with him as a teacher! Anyway, I look forward to what this year will bring. I hope Paige can learn to love reading and start to get better and faster at it. I hope Hailey can just continue the path she's on and continue to love learning!

Nate and Tan invited us to spend a few days with them at their cabin this summer. Their place is inside a beautiful golf resort...and just minutes away from Koocanusa lake. So needless to say we had a ton of fun. We spent a few days at the Beach on the seadoo's and and a few at the gorgeous pool. The kids played games with their cousins all day long and honestly had so much fun. They get along SO well! It was just such a fun easy holiday!
