Ashlyn - 1st Grade: September 2017

The first six weeks is almost finished for Ashlyn and the other first graders.  Love seeing the different stories from her writing samples.

I like to go to California and we had to
ride on an airplane and we had a pillow

I like to play with Raeleight and Amelia
so much.  I like to play with Amelia
in ESD.  I like to play with Raeleigh.

I like the giving.  I like the giving
because it has a tire swing.

Ashlyn's 1st Grade Writing Folder

Ashlyn was assigned a project from her 1st grade teacher.  Her objective was to find pictures and create a collage to put on her writing folder.  Thankfully, Jeff helped her this afternoon to find a variety of pictures and larger letters of her name.  He also helped tape them on using packing tape to keep them from coming off easily creating almost a lamination on top of the folder.  She was most excited about finding the picture of the cat, since it was a picture of a blue russian.  Ellie, our cat, is a blue russian.

Ashlyn - 1st Grade: August 2017

Ashlyn returned to school and started 1st grade on August 16th.  She continues to stay busy with school, American Heritage Girls, and swimming at Emler Swim School.

Ashlyn learned about the Total Eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017.

I am 6 years old.
My favorite books: Frozen.

My birthday is in July 19.

I like to play (with) Riley.

Ashlyn's class read a story in 1st grade called The Recess Queen by Alexis O'Neill to learn why it is not nice to act as a bully.  She wrote, "I am not a bully because.... I want to be treated how I want to be.
I am not a bully because....
I want to be treated how I want
to be.

Summer: June 2017

Summer always seems to go by quickly, but I sure enjoy these moments with both kids.  Here are some of the highlights from June 2017!

June 5th - Playing outside while
Jakob mowed the yard.

Jakob headed out Boy Scout Summer Camp on Saturday, June June 10th.  Jakob blogged about his experience, check it out here.

Jakob returned from Boy Scouts Summer Camp on Saturday, June 17!
Picking Jakob back up after he had a
great week at summer camp in Colorado!

Slightly tired!
Ashlyn decided to cut her hair on Saturday, June 10th!  She had Mallory cut about three inches off which really helped to reshape her hair overall.  Watching Mallory cut it was fun since Ashlyn was full smiles the entire time!

After swimming the morning of June 22nd and after picking up Jakob from tennis camp, Lana and I ran some errands and stopped by Hobby Lobby and picked up an afternoon craft for Ashlyn.

Lana and I both went to Going Bonkers with the kids on Friday, June 23rd to celebrate PK's 7th birthday party with him.  We had not been there for a few years.  The temperatures were predicted to be high for this day, so this was a fun morning while being indoor with air condition!

Jakob participated in the local 4th of July parades with Boy Scouts.  These following pictures are prior to him heading out to the Savannah parade on June 24th.

Paloma Creek had their annual 4th of July Celebration on Saturday, June 24th.  We enjoyed an evening outside visiting with neighbors, eating hot dogs, and drinking snow cones!

The kids and I attended VBS at Cross Way UMC between June 26 through June 28th.  Jakob helped by volunteering all three days.

On Wednesday, June 28th, the VBS kiddos welcomed our new pastor with water balloons and they sure loved every minute of it!
