Ava's first day of Kindergarten

Ava freaked out when she saw the bus pulling up to our driveway.  She couldn't wait to get on.  She is the last one picked up on the morning bus route, so she has a 1-2 minute bus ride to school.  She gets picked up at 8:45 am and gets dropped off at 3:45 pm.  She came flying off the bus saying she had the BEST day!  Her bus buddy, the girl she sits with, was in her preschool class last year.  However, this girl lived in another town.  They moved to the street behind ours.  We had no idea!  Then, of course it had to be an eventful first day.  Ava tripped and skinned her knee at recess and had to go to the nurse.  Then she lost her lunch ticket that her teacher gave her in class, and finally, when Ava was done eating and was cleaning up she dropped her tray and some applesauce fell into her crocs shoes.  She said the janitor helped clean up her mess and her shoe.  Only Ava!!  She loved school!

Lake fun

We spent yesterday at Crooked Lake with our good friends, Shawn & Teresa Nicholson...and their 2 girls.  Our friends have a small place up there 1 block from the lake.   After 2 years they have finished the renovations, and invited us up.  What a great time!  So great to re-connect with friends again and the kids had a wonderful time.  They took us out on the lake in their boat.  We parked at a sandbar where the water was only 3' deep.  Our friends took all 3 girls out swimming, plus Reid.  Ava and Reid had no fear!  They had the best time ever!  Looking forward to next time!

Reid's 1st haircut

Reid got his first haircut tonight.  His hair is pretty thin.  He didn't have very much around the bottom of his head, just the upper back and top.  So, that is what got cut.  Now it doesn't look like he's wearing a wig.  ha!  He screamed bloody murder as soon as the apron was put on him.  It didn't matter that he was sitting in a race car that made noise.  So, I held him in a headlock and our hair lady cut fast.  Now his hair has a little texture to it.  Looks better~!
