Lubbock Weekend Visit

For Jim's birthday this year, we went to see my parents in Lubbock. Jim got to celebrate his birthday by doing one of his favorite things ever.....we went to a Texas Tech football game. It was Tech vs. UT and the best part was that since my parents live in Lubbock we get to stay with them, they babysit, and we got a super fun night out!!! Grandparents are the greatest aren't they? To top it all off, my Dad's company, Texas Farm Bureau Insurance, sponsered the game and we got to go for free!! Woo hoo!!! First we got to spend some time visiting with my parents and Grammie and Popo. We also got to eat dinner with some good friends of theirs Sharon and Elvis. They even brought over a red tricycle for Kyndall and Avery to enjoy!! So sweet huh???Grammie and PoPo with the girls

Bits and Gram with the girls:
Grammie, me and Mom
Jim and I gearing up for the game (notice my red nails so I could spice up my guns up!)
I dragged Jim to an AXO tailgate. Got to see some of my old sorority sisters and a super sweet Alumni who does this every home game with her husband:)
It was a "red out" game where all Tech fans wore red shirts to the game...pretty fun huh!
Jim and I had to get a pic of us in the stands! I am so glad I married a Tech Alumn so we can enjoy games together and root for the same team:)

Thanks Mom and Dad for Jim's super thoughtful birthday gift and a wonderful time as always visiting with you!!

First Day of Preschool!!

Well, guess who started Preschool today? At first, she was a little nervous, but gave me a smile at the door anyway....Then we got to the school, and she walked in the room, but wasn't happy about it....

I asked her to let me take a pic of her sitting in her seat so I could show everyone what a big girl she was, and I got the pouty lip! (All the while, Avery was trying to play with the toys they had set up for the boys and girls to play with as they came in the room!)

So Kyndall gave Avery a sad sweet hug goodbye, as Avery was still eyeing the toys on the table again! Avery didn't want to leave and Kyndall did! Go figure:) No tears though!!

While Kyndall was at school, Avery and I had a playdate with Piper and Caleb Mathis...While the Mommies planned for our first MOPS meeting, the kiddos played some games together....Love Avery's strategy to pick up all the butterflies that were on the ground. She didn't cheat it says you can do that in the rules:)

When I picked Kyndall up, she looked at her teachers and said goodbye to them, then looked at me and said, "I love Preschool, can I go back tomorrow?" Sweetest words I could have heard. She rattled off stories and activities she did, then we went to pick up her cousin Dani from highschool and we all celebrated a great Thursday at Yogurtie for some fancy Yogurt!

Meet The Teacher night!

Wow, what a crazy thing to see your baby's name on a desk tag for her to sit and learn and go to school! I can't believe Kyndall is old enough to go to Preschool. We are taking her to the one at Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church this year 3 days a week. She was SO excited to sign up for Preschool and has been waiting and waiting all Summer long to get to finally go! We went to "Meet the Teacher" night and found her spot at her table:Then Kyndall went through the items there which were a new T-shirt, a chance to win $100 off tuition this month, and some letters from her teachers (for the parents) and guidelines on procedures etc....

Her "Lead" teacher is Kari Korth and has a daughter named Kendyl...that was pretty cool!!!

Here is Kyndall telling her teacher how to spell her name and Avery's name.

The Assistant teacher in her class is Danielle Thompson...super sweet as well. I really enjoyed meeting these ladies and look forward to them teaching Kyndall this year!
There was also a small craft show (emphasis on the word small) which Jenny Garland and I decided to enter...hmm...DUD!!! I made $15 and Jenny made $10....and we spent it all on food, boo!!
But back to Kyndall.....She really seemed excited and a little nervous. Then we got home, she went to bed and I heard SOBBING. So I went upstairs to find her totally balling her eyes out because she wants to stay home and play with her sister. I mean how sweet is that? I knew they were close and enjoyed each other, but she is really going to miss being with her. I let her know that it was not all day, and Avery would be napping for most of the time she was gone, but she is still pretty nervous. She starts her first day on Thursday, so hopefully by then she will feel a little better about it. I will be praying for peace and calmness for her and her worry to be wiped away. It breaks my heart to see her this upset about Preschool, but I know that once she starts she will be happy and excited about going....I'll keep you all updated!!!
