Aug's First Day at Pre-School

At some point in your child's short life, you realize they are starting to outgrow you. That day was today. August started pre-school.

Here is my baby girl on her first day of pre-school.  Of course she had to pose, she couldn't just smile on the porch.  She is such a little entertainer!

She has been talking about this for months...and I'm not joking...m-o-n-t-h-s.  We knew this day was coming.  It has been marked on the calendar for the last two weeks.  And still, it hit me like a ton of bricks this morning.  As I picked out her clothes for the day, I just knew that I had to put her in her favorite color...pink.  We posed for a picture on the front porch.  I think this is a tradition for most American families.  I'm okay, I tell myself, it's pre-school not kindergarten.  We drop Gentry off and meet Travis at the pre-school.  I unbuckle Aug from her carseat...I'm still okay...

When we got to the school, she ran inside.  I didn't even have time to focus my camera before I took this shot.  She was so excited to go!
And she's off.  We stroll inside...I'm still okay...it's just pre-school...not high school.  As we enter the school, her backpack is off and she is gone.  And I mean gone.  She is exploring all the other rooms, she is checking out the toys, she is even introducing herself to the other kids!  I spend a couple of minutes with the director and I go to say goodbye to Aug...and she doesn't even care that I'm leaving.  The look on her face said, "You're still here?"

And so we left.  And I lost it.  She needs me to drive her to school and fix her meals.  She is a social butterfly with no fears.  I'm not sure how she got that way.  It certainly wasn't from me.  She must get that from her daddy.  :)

What a Sunday...

It started out, "Mommy, don't take my picture!"  And she turns her back to me.

We picked up sticks around the yard using the Gator.

Gentry joins us outside and enjoys the weather.  He even makes silly shapes with his tongue!
Gentry goes for a crawl in the grass.  He is not sure what to think of it.  The look on his face the entire time was priceless.  He was also funny when I tried to take his picture with him looking at the camera.  He tried to look around the camera instead of at it.  He knew I was back there and he kept looking for me.
We ended the day with meatballs (becuase they freeze beautifully)...and lipstick as eyeshadow.  Yep, she found some lipstick and put it on her eyelids.  Isn't she pretty?

Sleeping Angels

After a wild...and I mean August laughing and swinging around the post in the kitchen, Gentry crying for food (it goes like this "waa waa mmmm" when the spoon goes in his mouth)...evening, I checked on the kids and they are sleeping like little angels.  Their tiny faces look so dreamy as they sleep.  It makes my heart go pitter-patter.  I wish I had a picture but I'm afraid the flash and sound of the shutter would wake them and disturb this peacefulness.

Oh, by the way...It's Harvest Time!!!!  I got the call Sunday afternoon.  So cool.
