Class of 2028

Today was Lia's first day of Kindergarten

She was so excited to get there 
To see all the kids 
And her teacher Ms Brown 
And let's not forget the best thing of all ~
Uncle Ryan!! He's the gym teacher at her elementary school! 
 Bonus :) 

On the way out the door - snack in hand

It was a beautiful fall-like day 

Did I mention Lia was so excited?! 

When we arrived at school all the kindergarteners in the school meet at the flag poll and got in a big circle while Pharells song Happy was playing- it was so cute! 

This momma couldn't have had a sappy sweet song playing. It was an upbeat fun way to start the day and school year. 

Be amazing today and everyday Lia!

It's almost that time

Summer is almost over.
The last 2 weeks have flown by. 
And now Lia is just days away from starting Kindergarten. 
Yep it's almost that time! 

In the past few weeks we've packed as much summer in as we could. 

We've seen a summer rainbow 
We went to one of our favorite end of summer festivals at St Mary's and Lia had a sleep over with her cousins at Oma and Opas house

We have stayed up late reading 

And we have been hanging out in some unseasonably cool weather on our almost finished porch !!! 
And in the middle of it all Lia sprained her ankle 

It's been a fun and busy summer. 
It seems like just yesterday we began our summer at the beach 

And now we are school supply shopping, meeting teachers, talking curriculums and IEP's! 

Kindergarten will be a big adventure.
And we just know she'll be great. 
She has an outstanding team supporting her..... 
And oh the places she'll go!

A Day at the Fair

As summer winds down and we get ready for school to start we have a few last outings planned! 

First up - The Ohio State Fair. 

We got there early & got the BEST parking spot ever. Literally we parked about 25 yards from the Midway entrance. 

We started with donuts and chocolate milk - the breakfast of champions. 

We rode the Giant Slide at least a half dozen times 

And Lia rode just about every ride on the Midway. 

We drank our weight in iced tea and got sun on our faces! 
Lia had a blast feeding all the animals carrots at the petting zoo. 

Lia was thrilled (insert wink) when we made her stand with Ickey Woods and show him her Ickey shuffle. 

I think we say this every year but this year was the best! 
We had so much fun at the 2015 Ohio State Fair. 

And just because - 
A sky ride selfie to end the day. 
Until next year!
