Back to School, Back to School.....

Well, it happened maybe quicker than we wanted, but back to school time is upon us!

Last week, we had several "events" we had to go to at the High School for Avery, but this week is when it really all begins!

Last night was mr Finn's open house!


He is going to be going on Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 8:15-9:45 to Early Childhood/Speech!  He wanted to wear his bowtie!!!!

We decided to grab a celebratory supper at our favorite Mexican place!!!!

Early this morning, most of us were chipper and ready to go!  Finn had a hard time waking up, but some underwear funny talk from Olivia made him giggle, and then he was ok :)

Here is Avery, our HIGH SCHOOLER!  She is going to be going for 4 classes this year, and then doing World History, Geometry, and Health/PE at home!

Olivia is a 5th grader!!!  There was no before school open house, so this is kind of a totally new day for her, not even meeting her teacher yet!  After school, I am going to help her decorate her locker, so hopefully we'll grab a picture then!!!

Again, Finn and his bowtie! :)  At least when he lets me pick out his clothes, the bowtie semi matches!  ha!


It was the first year that I wasn't able to take each kid to school.  Daddy and I had to divide and conquer.  He took the girls, and I took Finn.  He was a little hesitant to let me go, but being with Ms Kristen again this year was familiar!



I mean.....how cute is he??? :)


Can't wait to pick them all up and see how their days went!!!

UPDATE 1:

Finn got done, and had a great day!  Avery had a quick morning, and I was able to snap a pic of her coming out of High School...




Avery got a pic of Liv walking into school this morning for me!!!

Lake Day and Soggy Doggy Days

The end of the summer is here, and this was our last "real" weekend of summer...

Olivia went to our church's "lake day" on Saturday.  The rest of the crew was home, but she represented for us all!!!



Finn has been wanting to take a picture with the water tower, so we did just that.....and he was so pleased!


Soggy Doggy Days is how our town end the summer!  We got Winnie all ready, and off we went.  She does not like the water, and was so-so about the other dogs. 






There were a couple of other mini goldendoodles that we got to see!  





This was her favorite part of the night....i let go of her leash, and she ran and ran and ran in circles!


Love our crazy crew!!!

into August we go!!!


no lie....this "HARDEST decision EV-AH" took her AT LEAST 30 minutes, till after 10 pm...at Walmart!!! SOOOOO funny, my life is!!!. Good thing we had the WHOLE SCHOOL SUPPLY SECTION to ourselves, so she could lay out ALL THE OPTIONS, and make SURE that things went together (???) .... what HARD decisions she had to make!!!!
gotta love my Livie


Here is some of what she ended up with! :)

She also needs a drawstring backpack / cinch bag.  So, we found a clearance XXL womens skirt at Walmart, and made her one!  The tutorial I read said she made it in 30 minutes.  It took me off and on for 2 days, with lots of mistakes! :)



Found this beauty at Goodwill....going to be a shelf for Mr Finn's room!!!!


Also, when Nana Dianne and Bapa Craig were here, they went past a house that was putting in new kitchen cupboards, and these were out for free....so, here is what I did with them!  One is going into our laundry room (hopefully) and maybe one in the garage :)


While up at Nana Judy and Bapa Ron's house, Finn got this Dino egg at Storybook Land!  When we got home, into the water he went!  He spent 3-4 days coming out of his shell, and then spent another couple of days growing after that!  It was a cute and fun thing for the kids to do!

These kiddos have been hanging out ALL summer together.....And, yes, Finn doesn't wear clothes much.  oh well :)

We found a rock by a cute little tree in town!  We then took it and re-hid it in the front of Walmart!

The ice cream truck came again!  This was the second time this summer, and it was soooooo much fun to hear it coming, and then wait for it, get yummy treats, and enjoy!!!

Finn chose a power puff girl...not sure why...
(also, he and Liv had a little crash while scooter-ing the other day, and he got an owie) 




  
This is one of his silly looks these days....so funny!


The end of his ice cream ended up on our driveway!


Close up of his owie right after it happened, with some goo on it!

and, because he didn't pick it AT ALL, it healed up within a week!  whoo hoo!!!!!

Liv wanted to take a picture of her and Winnie for a bookmark....and mr pants-less boy wanted to be in it too!!!


I feel like I've been super busy with projects lately, but it's been fun!  Just finished this one up today, but can't show because it's a gift!  Pieces of laminate flooring, cut up, and put on an old kitchen cupboard door....



I will have to update what it ended up looking like once the gift is given!!! :)
