I Couldn't Be Prouder

This morning started early. It was still pitch black when we left home and headed to a conference with Julia's teacher. I knew she was doing great in school, but she's doing even better than we thought. Her teacher bragged and bragged on her - not just on her academic abilities, but also on her character. I am just so proud of her today. According to her teacher she is a "dream student". Well, I say she's a "dream daughter" too! How blessed I am!

Our neighbors are good friends and the kids have a lot of fun playing together. Julia and Will have made a "club house" behind some of the big bushes in our front flower bed. They always are so excited to get the club decorated and everything is very official with snacks and a mailbox too. They're great buddies.

Here's Julia practicing Pop Goes the Weasel with Olivia's help a couple of nights ago.

I would have never guessed that you would be getting such incredibly glowing reports when we were enduring all of THIS! You have made me proud......
I love you, Jupie!!

Joshua and the Leaves

We've had lots of fun playing in the leaves lately. We're still waiting for the leaf trucks to come through so there have been more than enough leaves to roll around in and kick up in the air. I love it when they pose for me....

See his dirty little face? He's two to the bone.

I love him more every day. You would too if he ran up and hugged you while saying in the sweetest voice ever, "I love you soooooo much, Mommy. You're my superhero!"
