Elle starts Kindergarten today! She has all day kingarten and is so excited to eat lunch at school. She even brought a baby with her in case there is show and tell. :) We are so proud of our little girl and can't believe how fast she is growing up. Hopefully time slows down for a little bit and lets us catch up.

Second Grade!

Morgan started second grade yesterday and I can't figure out where the last 6 years have gone. She looked so grown up and so beautiful on her first day, I almost cried when I dropped her off. She has all of the same kids in her class, as she will through 6th grade, and will now be speaking purely in Spanish from the opening bell until lunch. She is excited to get back to school and is not even a little nervous about getting back to Spanish. I am so proud of her (and honestly a little jealous!)

We had our friends' little boy Noah come over to play a couple of weeks ago. He lives in St. Louis, so we don't get to see him very often. I was worried he would be a little nervous staying with us for a day, but he walked right in, said he remembered me, and went right to playing. They started playing in the toy kitchen, but soon found themselves outside playing on the swingset and running races. Every time my kids called him Noah, he would look at them and say, "My name is Iron Man." So, yep, we called him Iron Man the rest of the day :) He and Miles got along great, and it made me sad that Noah lives so far away. I am sure they would be best friends if we lived closer. We were glad to have him for the time we did, and hope to play again soon.
