Daddy & Daughter Date Night

Thursday night Abby and Shane got to go spend some good quality time together on a daddy daughter date night at Chick Fil A.

She was so excited to get to go out to dinner just her and daddy and that place really did it up good. They had the tables lined with table clothes, had flowers on the table and each little girl got a flower, they had candles, a violinist and even got to take a ride around the shopping center in a limo! Shane said it was great they served you at the table like a real restaurant and all the little girls were all dressed up having a great time with their daddy's.

I will admit to be just a little jealous :) considering I can't remember the last date night I got and when ever it was it most definitely did not include any of those things listed above!!

And I just had to add this pic because Friday was her first full day of Kindergarten and she was such a big girl and did so great when I dropped her off and didn't miss a beat and went straight to coloring on her morning work. She had lots of stories of fun times when I picked her up, which I almost cried seeing her and running behind big brother to the car it really sank in I think at that moment she is no longer a baby but a school age big girl!

Off to School

WOW is that an echo I hear in here? :) sorry about that, my bad. We have been super busy all summer with baseball never ending and vacation and all that stuff that makes us crazy. But after today I will have Lots more time on my hands.

So why will I have so much more time on my hands you ask? Well this is why.

because I now officially have 2 school age children! Wyatt started 4th grade last Monday (I am not sure how this is possible and he has gotten this old but apparently it has) so he has been at it for a few days already, but today.

Abby went for her FIRST DAY of SCHOOL! OMG. She was super excited although last night she did seem to get a bit nervous, but this morning she was awake before anyone else and rushed thru eating and then got her self dressed and was off to brush her hair demanding she could do it herself.

Today is just a half day for her and Friday she will go for her first full day. So that means from the hours of 7:30 to 2:30 I will be without my kiddos. I will still have the one little one I watch But she naps and for 2 whole hours everyday I will be alone! OMG what ever will I do with myself? I haven't had just 1 at home since Wyatt started Kindergarten, on any given day over the past few years I have had anywhere from 3 up to 5 kids every day!

She did look SOOO cute in her new outfit, that BTW took forever to pick out :)

I was doing good til we ran into one of Wyatt's old teacher and she starting in with Oh My she has gotten so big. That's when the tears started but I was good and dried them up and said we weren't gonna mention it. But she did great and didn't mind me leaving her which made it easier. Well I am off to go pick her up, I can't wait to hear how her first day of school went!
