September Happenings

The little two and I have had some nice, slow, fun days while big sister is at school.

They were snuggling on the couch one day while I was cleaning. This one is blurry, but Jovie kept kissing him so sweetly.

Bonnie and I went to lunch for her birthday.

Our neighbor, Kyan, came over one afternoon and played computer games with the kids.

Haven took us to her school playground one day to show us how she can do the monkey bars.

Jensen sat on the potty one day. He only tooted. haha

We went to family night at Haven's bookfair and Clifford was there. Jovie was the only brave one.

419 Breton Road

So, my parents decided it was time to move from the 2nd house I grew up in and they are moving beside the 1st house I grew up in.  I love this turn of events. It feels full circle.

Here are some pictures for our memories.

Front drive

My green bedroom walls and shelf i made in college.

We wrote on the wall leading down to the basement through the years.

I wrote one last entry. "Holly was here with Jeremy, Haven, Jovie, and Jensen!"

Back road where we road bikes, built forts, and took lots of walks.

Our long balance beam

The roller skating rink

As we left, the sunset was amazing. It was as if God said, "Even better days to come, my dear!"

More Firsts

Jovie and Jensen started preschool last week. Jovie is in the 3 year old class and Jensen is in the Mother's Morning Out class. Jovie went last year so she knew what to expect.

Jovie wasn't excited at first. She said she didn't want to grow up and die. haha

Then she saw her name on the wall and her friends. Her tune changed.

Jensen started on Thursday, but we let him play in his room for a few minutes. He did great on Thursday! He and Trip had fun playing.

We ate lunch together after Jovie's first day and they were so cute sitting together.

They love wearing their backpacks.

 Jensen went right in and didn't cry a bit. He will be going Tuesday and Thursday, so I can go to Haven's school to volunteer some.

Jeremy bought Jovie flowers for her first day of school. Haven got some last week too and hers were just as unique and beautiful.

Jovie started gymnastics last week and loved it. She has looked forward to this for a long time. 

Now, we just have to get settled into this new routine.

Labor Day Beach Trip

This year our beach trip was different because it had to fit in between the school weeks. So, we got to the beach house at bedtime Friday and had to leave Monday morning. We squeezed in as much beach time as we could and had so much fun.

Lyndsey and Haven were out in the rough waves in no time.

We went to Southport to show Lyndsey around since she had never been there. We ate at The Frying Pan which is a great experience and good food.

Our Family

My mom and sister made this cute sign with all of our favorite places.

We spent some time relaxing.

These two are funny.
