Getting ready for school.

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I just want to say thank you to all my blog friends that commented yesterday on my post.  You guys are really the best!  Thank you for your kind words about my cousin and sharing your stories about your loved ones that have battled breast cancer.  The more of us that are aware, the better, right? Right!  :)

Are your kiddos getting ready for school?  Abie starts tomorrow and we had meet the teacher last night.  Landry will move into her new pre-school class tomorrow as well.  I think to say that they're excited is an understatement!  As a farewell to summer, we took the girls to Schlitterbahn yesterday.  We kept it a surprise up until the last minute because we weren't sure what the weather was going to do.  We had so much fun, despite the grey, cooler weather :)  In fact, we sat in the parking lot until 12:30 PM because it was still raining when we got there!  The girls had a blast though, which is the important thing!

After we got home, we rushed around and ran up to the school to meet Abie's new teacher, Mr. Bonnel.  It's her first boy teacher and she is super excited because she "heard" he doesn't believe in homework.  Haha.  I told her he probably expects her to get it done in class and if not then she has to take it home, but won't ASSIGN homework.  I'm pretty sure she rolled her eyes at me.  Ha!  As a little hello gift, we took this with us for Mr. Bonnel:

This is a little clear paint can from Michael's that I picked up at 50% off.  I just embellished it a tiny bit, you know since the teacher is a boy ;)  I'm going to have a hard time this year with gifts and making them masculine.  Haha!

Okay, that's it for me!  Have a wonderful Tuesday and I'll be back tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by today!!!!
