Look Out Kindergarten - Prepared to be SPARKLED!

Today was Em's first day of school.  Daddy was kind enough to document it!

A before school cell phone check.  (It's Daddy's!)

Getting set up and ready for the day!

Catching Up

This summer has been a little more than busy because of extra projects at my job.  However, the busyness, stress, anxiety, and all other issues with my challenging work projects make me appreciate my limited time off with family all the more.

It's a Sunday afternoon and I should be working on some things for this week, but I'm taking a mini-vacation to review some pictures from things we've done this summer.  I thought you might enjoy a picture tour!

Emily's friend, Vivian, turned 4!

Our family attended a Children's Ministry Expo (CMX)
in Kentucky in early July for 2 days and then stayed at
Shaker Village in Kentucky for the rest of the weekend!
