Going Private

Okay so if you blog you have probably seen this new stats thing.  I think its pretty cool, but after playing around with it for a minute I think I might want to go private.  So... you know the drill leave me your e-mail address so I can add you.  You can e-mail it to me at lizzy_clarinet(at)hotmail(dot)com if you feel more comfortable doing it that way.
Is anyone else having a similar experience to me?  Am I overreacting? 
You have one week (sept 7thish)


It happened.  My little girl grew up and went to kindergarten.  I kinda feel like it's the beginning of the end. She is so smart and so ready but she will always be my baby.  Rest assured she did not feel any anguish over today.  And to be honest I don't think I felt the most anguish, that roll was taken by her little sister who thinks that she is 5 as well and going to kindergarten.  I had hard time coaxing Lily out of the classroom, she felt like she belonged there.   

Lily will be starting preschool here soon and I am not sure how I feel about that either.  Lily qualifies for free preschool through the school district along with speech therapy.  She will be doing preschool 2 days a week and I am fine with that, what I am having a super hard time with is that they will send a bus to pick her up.  She is way to little to ride the bus isn't she.  My heart can barelyy handle the thought.  Have any of you sent your kids on the bus? What did you do and how did you handle it, would I be crazy to drive her when this service is offered?

Some End Of Summer Fun

Can you believe that school is starting soon.  It seriously feels like summer just started. Well this weekend was our last weekend of summer fun as a family so we lived it up.  We did a fun and messy art project.

We went to some splash pads in SL and played.

We went to a fun new pizza place called Incredible Pizza that the girls had a blast at.
James and I also went on a double date with my brother and his wife.  We also had some friends and the missionaries over for dinner Sunday night, in which I made this cake.
Visit my craft blog for the recipe.
All in all we had a super fun weekend and we are all exhausted now.  Now I just need to do some back to school shopping and sewing.  I hope you all enjoy your last few days of summer and soak it up!!!

Catch Up. Again.

Sorry I am bad at staying caught up here. So here is a quick catch up.  First a few pics from swim lessons.
 As usual the girls loved swim lessons.

Next James did something wonderful for me.
Ahhh to sleep under a ceiling fan in our bedroom.  It feels like a dream.

And a little bit of miss Kaylee. She just hit the 6 month mark and is so cute!  She LOVES to play with blankets, clothes, etc.  Here she is playing.

See I told you she was cute.
