A Big Day for the Girls

The girls both had their first day of school on Monday, August 29th.  Abigail started Kindergarten (I still can't believe it!), and Olivia started preschool for the first time!  Abby will be attending all day kindergarten and she is taking the bus to and from school.  She goes Monday and Thursday and alternating Wednesdays.  This is the first year our school district is trying this schedule, we will let you know how we like and how it works out for us in a few months when we really get into the swing of things :-)  Olivia will be going to school on Mondays and Wednesdays and already has some friends in her class so that made the transition a little bit easier.  Both girls had great first days and they are excited for the upcoming school year.  I am just hoping I can keep my days straight and get the girls where they need to be on the correct days!!!

Our kindergarten-girl

That's Abby waving goodbye as the bus pulled away the first morning. 
It just about broke my heart watching the bus pull away down the street knowing she wouldn't be back for over 7 hours!  I did good though, and kept it together till she couldn't see me anymore!

Olivia in front of her new preschool.
She was very excited to be going to "Anna's school"
Anna is a friend of Abby's that is now in kindergarten, but she went to this preschool last year.

William was just along for the ride!

7+ hours later she returns!!!

Daddy stopped on his way home to pick up a special "first day of school" treat for the girls.
Cupcakes from Gigi's, the icing is taller than the cupcake!!

Orange for Olivia!!

The Big Apple

We took a trip to NY to visit my grandparents over Memorial Day weekend, my Dad, stepmom, brother and sister and my aunt all went out at the same time so it was like a mini family reunion.  It was so nice spending time with family and we always have lots of fun when we go visit.  We were able to go into the "big city" 2 days with all the kids and it actually went really well, we had lots of fun!

Olivia on the plane

This was William's first plane ride, he did really good!

When we landed in NY, we de-planed on the tarmac, the girls thought it was pretty cool!

Yay!  We are in New York!!!

The girls loved coloring and playing card with Grandma-ma

In the city

Taxi ride

William enjoyed his first trip to the Big Apple!!

Even big girls need a break from walking!

We ate at the world famous Gray's Papaya for lunch...
Yummy hotdogs!!

William is still a little young for a hot dog
Maybe next year!!!

At the Natural History Museum

We were by the big whale, but it was so dark in there you can't see it.

The dinosaurs are exciting!!

A trip to NY is not complete without a stop at FAO Schwarz

Playing on the big piano.

Lots of train and subway rides
The kids did really well with all the traveling


It was fleet week and they had a bunch of activities set up by the pier.

Cooling off with a snocone.

Magee Park Creek

We went to Magee park the other day to play in the creek with some friends and had a picnic.  The girls had so much fun splashing and playing in the water.  What a great little park!!
