first and last

Well, my first baby did it. Kayla finished her first year of school. I'm so proud.
She's come so far, learned so much.

She can write in sentences. She can count by 5's and 10's.
She can add and subtract. She can read! That last one amazes me the most.

She lost her two bottom baby teeth. Those holes were cute,
and now they are filled with 2 big adult teeth. 

She got glasses.

And she went from wearing a size 5 slim to a size 7 slim!
Every time I bought her new jeans I would have to buy her more.

Now onto the fun part...
the pictures from the first day of the last.

 a little blurry but oh well.

I can't believe that's it. That it's over.
I now have a first grader.

so very proud

The past 4 years Anthony has been going to school Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6pm to 9pm to get his journeyman's card. And he is finally done!! I'm not sure who is more or him. I think it's me. Monday night was his graduation. It was at a hotel in Richmond, The Omni. So we kinda had a date. We didn't have the girls but we were surrounded by other people at our table. But I'll take what I can get. Especially since we haven't been on a date since Kinsley was born and this is our third date in.....five years. I'm so proud of that man of mine.

There's another person in our family that I'm oh so proud of. This girl right here.

Her last day of kindergarten is tomorrow! What??? I can't believe in a little over 24 hours I will have a first grader.

I'm ready for her to be home for the summer, because even though she will drive me crazy I feel extremely guilty doing all these summer things with Kyleigh and Kinsley while she's at school.

ps. don't give your 19 month old (ahhh, how the heck is she 19 months already!?!?) a green popsicle  she'll turn into a little leprechaun.

mcdonalds for breakfast, a brownie for snack.

This morning when my alarm went off at 7:15 am I hit dismiss instead of snooze. I've been doing that a lot the past 2 weeks. I rolled over and went back to sleep. When I woke up I felt like I had been asleep forever. It was only 7:37. I laid in bed, checked facebook and instagram. I waited until 8:10 before I even moved. That's when Kayla finally woke up. It was 8:25 when she asked what was for breakfast...and that's when I realized the only thing we have for breakfast that she will eat is pancakes and not the frozen kind either. And I don't have enough time to make them. So I tell her to hurry and get shoes and socks I'm getting her McDonald's. I throw a brownie in her book bag for snack. Yeah, you read that right...a brownie. And I realize we didn't do last night's homework because I haven't been checking her folder. I grab her clipboard and a pencil and we run out the the pouring rain.

For the record this whole school year she hasn't missed a day. (Well, one when she got a tooth pulled but that was it!) We haven't missed the bus...not even once. And today, even though I dropped her off at school, we could've made the bus but she wouldn't have had time to eat. I thought eating was more important than catching the bus.

I'm so ready for next Friday when school will be out. Ready for the late nights, the sleeping-in, the not having to wake Kyleigh and Kinsley up Monday through Friday. (Can you believe even after 9 months of school I still have to wake them up every. single. day??) I'm done with checking folders and making healthy snacks. I'm ready for the pool and changing outfits 3 times a day. Not being on a schedule....and then 2 weeks after all of that I'll be ready for school to start again. The cycle never ends...

Now onto some photos from our life lately.

our week in way too many photos

**This post is kinda long but mostly because it's filled with lots of pictures. Sorry! That's your warning. :)

Our week has been kinda busy since last friday. So I'm just going to do this 11th grade english outline style.

1. Last Friday Kyleigh, Kinsley and I went to Kayla's school for her spotlight lunch. She was given an award for showing commitment, confidence and and being courteous  Let me just say...this mama right here is so very proud of her.

Kyleigh was a little worn out after that lunch. She came home and passed out, in her jacket and all.

This photo was taken 3 hours after the previous one.

2. Saturday we went and picked up my mom from the airport. You wouldn't know she was here based on pictures because she refuses to be in them. I try and tell her it won't matter in 10 years what she looked like in them, the girls will just be glad they have those photos but she isn't buying it yet. We didn't do much that day. We just dyed some more eggs that night and played games.

Kyleigh played her first board game that night. Pizza Party. Anyone remember it?? It's super easy. It says ages 4 to 8 but Kyleigh learned how to play it in no time.

3.  Monday we went to the Metro Richmond Zoo. Kinsley absolutely loved feeding the giraffes  She got upset when she wasn't feeding them and then got upset when we had no more food to give them. 

Thank you Kinsley for always grabbing my camera when I'm trying to take a photo. It makes for lovely blurry photos. haha. ;)

4. The Children's Museum has become our favorite place. We have gone twice in one week and are going to become members. Because $30 each time we go is a little too expensive for this mama.

5. My mom and I took Kayla and Kyleigh to the movies to see The Croods in 3d. Super cute movie and super fun to see in 3d. It was Kyleigh's first time going to the movies. She sat in my lap the whole time since she didn't like how the seats would try to fold up on her everytime she moved. I didn't get the photos I wanted but I got these two.

One of them standing in front of the Monsters University cardboard cutout.

And one of them in the photobooth after the movies. Kayla's lip had an allergic reaction the the popcorn I'm guessing. Luckily it went down an hour after getting home.

6. Kayla is still a Justin Bieber fan. She said he sings better than Justin Timberlake. (She has no idea what she is talking about! haha.) She got her first of many I'm sure posters this week.

And apparently she can make me look super skinny in photos. :D haha.

7. Kinsley's new thing is to play with baby dolls. I love watching her try to feed her babies.

And that my friends is it. There's our week minus me getting food poisoning and needing an iv. If you made it this far thanks for reading. :)

Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend!!
