4th Grade & 1st Grade

Today our little cowboys headed back to school.
This is the first year that I didn't feel extra emotional and sappy. I think it was because we weren't hitting any major milestones and both the boys were going back to the same schools they attended last year. We all hated to see summer go but it will be nice to get back into a routine.
Kallahan wanted Blizzy in his picture. She didn't cooperate too well but we managed to sneak her way into the best photo.
Kallahan wanted dad to tie his shoes so they stayed tied all day. Guess what, they did!
Oh boy, I love this little toothless grin.
Kallahan and his new teacher, Mrs. Hart at meet & greet last night. Keeler had her in 1st as well and had a great year. The boy's Mimi taught with Mrs. Hart years ago and we go to church with her so needless to say, we were super excited to see that Kal was going to be in her class.
Kallahan had a great first day! He said he had the most fun at recess and Mrs. Hart is very fun!
::Kallahan's First Days of School::

Keeler's teacher is Mrs. Johnson. After meeting her last night he had the assignment to bring a bag of 5 items that represented him on the first day. He selected:
a basketball... for his favorite sport
his new Steph Curry tee... for his favorite basketball player
a picture of his football team... because he's excited to start playing football again
a work glove... because he likes to help work on the farm
a belt buckle... something he likes to collect

Keeler was NOT ready to go back to school. He is my emotional child. He made it through the day and had a big smile when he got off the shuttle bus. I think he was just anxious but we're hopeful and praying he'll have another great year.

Love you boys the most! Praying they have the BEST year!

Family Photos 2017

This year I love, love, love how our family pictures turned out.  I am so blessed to have such a talented friend, Candice, that has recently started a photography business.
She surpassed my expectations and then some. She really is a magician because you would never know that we were swarmed by mosquitoes. Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen so many. She was able to capture all of these somehow between us swatting and squirming.

My world in one picture 
Thank you so much for the photos Candice! You’re beyond talented. I will cherish these forever.

Happy six years to my little cowboy Kallahan!

Wishing this silly, quick-witted, cat loving, six-year-old the happiest birthday!! We're so lucky to be your parents. 
We had a great day celebrating you. We went in as a family and woke you up with a special "happy birthday serenade." You took chocolate cupcakes with red icing {your request} to school. After school, Keeler gave you a John Deere painting set and all the neighbor kids came down and helped you paint. You loved that!  While Keeler was at football practice I let you download a new calf roping game... Basically the best day ever ;)
Kallahan Troy, you are one of my greatest blessings. Six years ago you made our family complete.
