Life Lately...

So it's been awhile since I've posted. Since school started, I feel as though it's taken us this long to adjust to our new schedule! This year we are getting out almost an hour later than last year. This has taken some getting used to. We've decided to eliminate swim team from our schedule, as it was just too many activities when we added flag football and ballet. Jake is enjoying kindergarten and I am loving having him with me at school. Normally, I don't see him daily during school hours, unless it's to pop my head in the cafeteria. He is adjusting well to the daily schedule and his sweet teacher. Landry Grace is full of stories every. single. day.  She makes me giggle and roll my eyes at the same time. What a difference between a girl and a boy! 

Below is a hodgepodge of pictures that I just didn't feel like sorting out. In a nutshell, the pics include: 

Our Sunday morning mini photo session before church this AM

  a throw back pic where LG had stolen Jake's Chuck E Cheese tickets and he thought he'd NEVER get them back...meanwhile Miss Priss is looking like "Hey, who me?"
 Fast forward 2 years and here come school days and tears from Mama!

 Kindergarten is wearing this little boy OUT at night!
 Proud of his masterpiece from art class
 My little ballerina starting year 3 of dance and still loving it!
 Sadly, I won't be getting anymore of these pictures this year. But priorities are important to our family. Maybe next year!!
 Only 69 more days until Disney! Our Very Merry Christmas Party tickets came in the mail and Jake was thrilled!
 We also went to see Nemo in 3D after school one day. Embarrassed to say that this was the first time I'd seen it. Opps! But a great movie!!
 We are loving some Tech football this year(OK, I admit that I'm not a big football fan). The Dawgs are 4-0 right now. Looking forward to a home game this weekend. 
 And the simple things in life involve Landry Grace enjoying her first dipped cone. Too bad McDonald's stopped making them last week. Booo!!
 Matt went on a week long trip with friends that included a Cubs game, Bulldogs game against Southern Illinois, a Tennessee Titans game, and then a trip to the Big Easy(New Orleans, as if you didn't know) for business. We were so glad to see him last Wednesday.  He sent me this picture form Wrigley Field. 
 We've enjoyed visits with my grandmother, Big. Praying that I age this well!
 We had our first flag football game this past week and won! I've never been nervous about Jake playing sports until now. But he had a blast out there!
 On Thursday, Ms. Lawrence had Johnny Appleseed activities. I went in to help out for a few minutes and thought it'd be a good idea to take a picture. Jake wasn't on the same page with me....
 These are from grandparent's day at school. Jake loved doing an activity with Big D. Mom was a little late after having run 19 miles that morning. Of course she was a trooper and came when she got done. 

 Landry Grace had her nursery rhyme parade at school on Friday and was all grins as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. The little girl in the picture below is her best buddy this year, Malarie. Too precious!

Whew! Hope you're having a great fall thus far! I'll try and be better about updates:).

This is a pretty AWESOME hodge podge. Don't know which is cuter... Landry Grace covered in ice cream or wearing the star. Awesome.
