Phone Photo Dump 57

Norah LOVES Baby N.  Seriously loves her.  She loves to help take care of her, and wants to be with her ALL.THE.TIME. She refused to take a picture this morning unless baby girl was in it.  She also loves to make silly faces.  Oh, and she loves DRESSES.  I had to work hard to convince her to wear this outfit today....but how cute does she look?!

 Shane is taking Kindergarten very seriously.  Every day, he writes.  And writes and writes some more.  His inventive spelling is so fun!  And how about this for a great reminder?

He is our savior
We forgive others
God is our savior
God is our promise savior
 It's FALL!

At our last girls' night, we made these block pumpkins.  So easy, and so fun!
Baby N!  She is getting a bit mobile....lots of rolling and backwards scooting!
Fun times at Old Navy!

N reading to N. :)

Fall Soccer

The kids have had several practices and 2 games by now.  Here are a few pictures from their first game-day this season (2 weekends ago)!

 Of course it had to be chilly and raining for their first game!

Shane scored 3 goals during this game!

1st day of Mommy Preschool

 Preschool this year is going to be pretty fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants and casual.  Life is busier than ever, especially with little baby N still in our care, and my church and school volunteer responsibilities have increased. I'm seeing the truth in what so many told me when I was in the throes of 4 children ages 5 and under.....that despite how busy life seemed back then, it's so much crazier the older they get.  Sports schedules, school projects, instruments, homework, church, and so on (and I didn't even mention the fact that our house still needs to be cleaned and our family still needs regular meals prepared for them!) is flying by at an insane pace and to be completely honest, I am extremely overwhelmed.  How did we get here?  I don't want to be the family (or the mom) that does too much.  But the reality is, we have 4 kids (5 at the moment), and this is what our life looks like right now. So this year, my last year with Norah home full time, will consist of some structured preschool stuff, but mostly as much intentional time with her as possible because I know it's just going to soar by, and soon enough she will be off to school with the rest.

We love pattern blocks!
Writing her name.
So proud.
