School is back in session!

School started back up almost two months ago and as usual, the kids are loving it!  Kelton is in 5th grade, his last year at the grade school!  Katie is in 1st grade, which seems so much older than kindergarten!

They love it when school starts and I'm so grateful that they do, but it's always so hard for me to send them back.  I love having spending time with them in the summer!  It's always so hard not to cry!

 I'm not sure they manage to destroy their backpacks every year, but they do!  So thank goodness for Kohls and 30% off.  I was able to get Kelton a camo one and Katie's has ladybugs!

 Something even more new this year was that they both got glasses after a visit to the eye dr.  Kelton needs to wear his all the time but Katie's are just for school work and reading.

The day after they started school, Konny started his last year of Pre-K.  I will readily admit that I'm having regular panic attacks about sending him to kindergarten next year.  I seriously can't talk about it without crying.  He can't wait though!

We are are so blessed to have such fabulous teachers and staff in our schools!  I love being able to treat them for loving my kids all year!

I'm the Box Tops coordinator again this year so don't forget to clip and send them our way if you're not already saving for another school!

Mulvane Old Settlers 2014

The Saturday of Old Settlers is a long fun (tiring) day!  We get up in the morning and run the road race.  Even Konnor ran this year!  Then we watch the parade.  Then we hit up the carnival for treats and rides!

Summer Biathlon 2014

This was my third year to participate in the summer biathlon at Lake Afton and Kelton's second year.  We're hoping to eventually talk Daddy into participating and in a couple years, Katie will be ready too!

It was pretty hot this year and I was battling e.coli that I brought home from Mexico, so I was a bit dehydrated and not at my best running.   I did still shoot 5/5 prone and 4/5 standing, so I was happy with that!  Next year I'm hoping for 10/10!  Kelton did awesome and placed 3rd in the 14 and under boys age division.

Finally some pictures from our trip to Cabo, which was over a month ago now!  I was pretty nervous about being away from the kids for so long, but they were eager for us to leave so they could spend a week at Nana and Papa's.  Our flight left super early on a Saturday morning and we returned late Thursday evening.  It turned out to be a fabulous time (for us and the kids) and I'm so glad we took some time to get away together.  I'm already looking forward to planning our next vacation!  Now for some picture overload....
