Back to School....

This little guy is settling in nicely to his sweet school; however, it's his mommy that's having a hard time. I can already feel a looooong year ahead! But what's most important cute is this kid?? :)

He spent the weekend in Stephenville with his Daddy. They had a blast hanging out with cousin Gunner! Here he is already hitting the open road!
To prepare for back to school, I had LASIK! Why did I wait so long?? It's amazing how well I can see. What's not amazing are these hot goggles I had to wear for a week!

Goodbye to all of my little friends!!!

I'm so sad that this year will be the first that I will not have many familiar faces in the hallways. My last class to teach graduated and are moving on! Sweet Kendall and Chelsea (G's favorite babysitters) are off to A&M (whoop!) and Baylor. Good luck girls! We miss you already!

A little more playtime with G before they go....

Griffin and I made some sweet treats for his teachers for the first day back.

We made brownies with surprise Reese's cups inside! Then Hans reminded me they cannot have peanut butter at his school. Guess who had to eat them?? Dang it.

Best wishes for a great school to all of you! Here we go!

Celebrations and Reunions!

Congratulations to my sweet nephew Gage! He took some extra classes over the last few months and graduated early from high school. We are so proud of him! I told him I remember the day his dad (my bro) came to pick me up in 10th grade to tell me I was going to have a nephew! we are 18 years later! We love you, Gagey!

My best friend Jennifer and her family came down from South Bend, Indiana so we decided to gather up old friends/teachers and have a reunion! Here is my 7th grade math teacher, Ms. Berlin (Ms. Kerr now!). I always joke with her that she must have been 12 when she taught us :)

Crazy Heather. She cracks me up :)

Our other BFF Amy came too from San Antonio. Love this lady!!!

We then went to the Egans for a get-together to spend time with Gracie and the boys. Someone enjoyed his popsicle.

Jack and Sawyer Egan; Cameron Born (with Carly running around); Alyssa and Hayden Podhorsky; and sweet G. The parents of all these children (with the exception of Hansio) are from Humble. Man, do we have some stories to tell them - one day. Maybe.

Scotty and his baby girl.

At our reunion at Mr. Weir's house (he was our choir teacher from 6th-12th grade), we decided to gather around the piano. We sang this song at our 8th grade pop show (and cried) because we had to leave Mr. Weir (who then surprised us to say he was coming with us to high school!). We then sang it again at the end of our last pop show in 12th grade (and cried again) when we were leaving for college. We were being silly here, but....I think we still have it!
