Back to School, Third Grade!

Well, summer ended and school started. The girls couldn't wait to find out who their teachers were and who was in their class. They were so excited about meet the teacher night and see their new classroom. I couldn't get them to leave the school!

When the first day came, Grace was sick. She missed the first day of school and I missed walking Lizzie to her first day. Wes took her and sent me photos. By the second day, Grace was well and on her way. They both have really great teachers and have friends in their class. I think I get more nervous than they do.

They've been in school for three weeks now and are settling. They love school and are working hard!

Winding Summer Down

August was a busy month for us! We had a great summer and we had fun up until school started! 

One Friday night, we went to the Fort Worth Stockyards for the Stockyards Rodeo. We had a great time. It was raining that night but good thing the rodeo is inside! After the rodeo, we went to look at some of the horses. There were a couple in the pen and the owners came out and let us pet their horses. They even gave the girls their competition numbers! The girls loved it. Their favorite sport is the barrel racing. They love to watch the women on the horses.

Right before school started, the girls and I spent a couple of days in Oklahoma. We visited family and had a great time.

I think I was more sad that August was ending than the girls. I'm wasn't ready for them to go back to school. I enjoy the time that we have together. They were ready though!
