Well, the kids did great! The boys fell asleep 1/2 way through Toy Story 2, but Sweet Pea lasted through both and even asked if they were going to show a third! And N and I were just excited to go see a movie! I think we have seen 4 in the past 5 years. Who would've thought that the more kids we have, the easier it would get? Have I mentioned what a good baby, Baby A is? Does this mean a fourth would raise itself???

And we tried to get a good pic of the kids, but Baby A was tired and Sweet Pea and Bear were preoccupied with finding the biggest pumpkin (thanks Daddy ;) ). But we had lots of fun and Bear even fed the donkeys.

She has played in 3 games now and she gets better and more interested each week. She is so proud when she kicks it and she looks so cute doing it! This past Saturday a parent from the other team told me her dancing on the field was the best part of the game :). I wish I had more pictures, but it's impossible for me to take them since I am running around the field with them. And Daddy is pretty busy with the boys.
Here she is with her "after game treat".
I have to add that I am growing so attached to other kids on the team. They are so fun and adorable!!!

I read in his 6 month check-up papers that he shouldn't need a feeding in the middle of the night, so I am guessing he doesn't need 2. We are going to try to get him to make it through the night without eating ~ we'll see how that goes...

As soon as we drove onto campus, I felt like I was home. I have sooo many great memories of that place. I mean 6 years is a long time to live in one area :). And that is where I met my soul mate and we had so many good times there. It also is nice to see maroon everywhere, rather than orange ;). And everyone is so friendly.
This is Quackers, the class pet from Sweet Pea's school. It was her weekend to show her a good time and I think she succeeded :).

To make matters worse, it was Bear's first (ever) day of school. Sometimes I forget that he is only 2. He's not the family baby anymore, so I tend to think of him as older. But, when it came time to send him to school, I quickly realized that he is growing up. My first sad moment came when we went to "Meet the teachers". His sweet teacher wanted to take his picture, so he said "cheese" and did his picture dance. He always does the same little dance when he poses for a picture - it's just Bear and I love it. His teacher didn't appreciate it as much and said "stand still, like a statue". All of sudden, I felt sad. I realized that he would no longer be the carefree and always silly little boy. Someone else would be influencing his personality. So the next few days I contemplated keeping him home. But, the fact that he is going to a Christian school with sweet Christian teachers and will be learning to play with kids his age, makes it worth all of the emotional mom stuff.
The best part of the day (and every school day) is when I get to pick them up! They are so happy to see me and they tell me all about the fun they had at school.
Here's my little boy, after his first day of school...
