Busy days

The weeks are flying by and we have been busy with work, school and home activities.  Thankfully God sent us a gorgeous weekend and we spent Saturday enjoying every minute of it.

Painted our canvases for display in the riverside businesses

Took a two mile walk with Wylie on the salt creek trail 

Played at home with friends in the leaves and yard, went to a St Mary football game and then returned home for dinner and an outdoor movie.  

Sunday is forecasted to be much of the same weather!

Happy birthday Taryn


You are eight.  I can't believe how quickly time flies.  You are a caring kind eight year old with stellar skills in reading and math.  My biggest frustration is seeing you make careless mistakes as you rush to get your homework or test done so you can play.  You love your American girl dolls and have a sentimental attachment to many things (makes it a little challenging to get rid of things), you love wearing dresses, playing teacher and cooking.  I recently let you start touching raw meat as we cook and you are doing a great job at handling this safely.  So far you have lost eight teeth however the latest ones have not been surrendered to the tooth fairy as you want to hold onto your teeth.

Your love for animals and babies is contagious as your wish for your eighth birthday was either a pocket dog, a Guinea pig or a baby brother or sister.  Unfortunately none of those wishes came true but you were happy to have your day at American girl.  You woke up three times the night before we went due to your level of excitement for the day.

Piano lessons have been tough as you resist practicing daily however you have committed to continuin thru December and then evaluating how you feel.  What you do love is cheer and your friends, you are a very social girl!

On your actual birthday we spent the day at great America and you rode the great American eagle with your dad by your side.

First tooth

PTali lost her first tooth at school today.  It has been loose for about two weeks now and fell out while she was in class.  However as her sister did she does not want to give it up so the tooth fairy has not made a visit.

In this photo you can see her adult tooth coming in behind her baby teeth - it will be interesting to see how this turns out!

First day of school

The new backpacks were packed school supplies, lunches, hand sanitizer and other doo dads.  It was a very rainy and humid morning but the girls were ready.

They decorated their signs with their names and a picture.  Their aspirations on this day are to be a babysitter (Taryn) and a pilot (Tali).  

In the classroom Taryn is sitting in a configuration of five students including one of her good friends.  Tali is sitting closest to the door in a configuration of four students with two boys that she mentions often during conversations about school. 


I managed to flex my work schedule so I was able to be there at dismissal (it was a full day for the first day).  They played with their friends and then quickly took off their jumpers leaving only their shirts and shorts on so we went for ice cream at aunt Diana's. 

It is only August so we will try to cram in a few more summer like weekends in New Buffalo however the fact that school resumes on Monday will be lingering in our minds as we try to enforce a regular bedtime and routine.
