Wow, I went a whole two weeks without posting anything :( What can I say? Life is busy. I have promised myself that I will go back and catch up one of these days. We have had a great summer and made lots and lots of memories. I have pictures to prove it! Today marks the first day of school. Noah is officially a first grader and Noelle starts 3-day a week pre-school. Hard to believe that summer is over and we're hitting another milestone.
I saw my "little" brother in Atlanta last week. He's a giant. I'm a midget. I even had heels on in this picture. Some things in life just aren't fair! I wasn't particularly thrilled about being away from my babies for a night but I did enjoy seeing Uncle Kyle...even if it was a super short visit because I went to the wrong Chili's. He gave me the address and instead of plugging the street into my GPS, I just searched for Chili's in the city he gave me. Not only did he get the height, he got the brains, too.
I ran my second post-accident race last weekend. I have a bum knee right now which made this a fairly unpleasant experience but the kids' run after the race made getting out there worth it. Noah ran a mile and Noelle ran 100 meters. They both seemed to really enjoy themselves so I'm excited for this running season since a lot of my races have kids' runs associated with them.
Noelle changes her clothes many times a day. Recently, she came out of her room in this ensemble. I asked her if she was going to Puff Daddy's White Party. Apparently, I'm the only one in my circle who knows about this annual event! I had her run in and tell her Daddy she was going to "Puff Daddy's White Party" but he had no idea what she was talking about. I guess it's a "Hamptons" thing ;)
We finally took Fourth of July pictures...on August 10th! I love this tradition and am so happy with the way they turned out. I will post them all one of these days!
There is an area in the mall where kids love to run around. Thanks to Sarah and Emma for introducing us to this area! I have gone to this mall for so many years and never thought to let the kids run loose. This is now one of their favorite things to do and makes dragging them to the mall much more pleasant since they know they get to do this. Mommy even joined in on the fun last time we were there :)
