Jack turns 6!

Jack turned 6 on Sept. 22 and we had a party at our neighborhood pool to celebrate. The club house catered the party with hot dogs and chicken fingers and I brought cup cakes. Seventeen of his neighbors and friends came and he had a great time. I was worried about his party since we just moved but Jack has made friends very quickly. It looked like Christmas around our house for days, he got so many nice presents. The weather had called for complete cloud cover and thunderstorms. We almost decided to cancel but the clouds cleared and the sun started shining. A great day for a great kid, I can't believe my precious baby boy is six years old! Happy birthday Jack!

Soccer days..

Jack has been playing soccer for the ymca this year, we watch his games on Saturday mornings.

Claire goes to preschool!

I'm not sure about this!
Five minutes later she is playing away...

Claire started a two morning a week preschool program for two year olds. Here she is on her first day!

First day of school...

Caroline started 4th grade and Jack started Kindergarten on August 17th. Jack was a little nervous because he did not think anything could compare to the preK program he attended last year. After a week, he could not stop talking about everything he was doing at school and about all of his new friends. He went from a 2hr and 30 min school day to a 6 hr and 30 min school day this year. Needless to say he is sleeping sound at night. Both kids seem to love their new school!

Hello Beaufort!

Here are some pics of our new home in Beaufort. We actually moved in the beginning of July.

Hold me daddy

We were invited by the Frankmann family this summer to Emerald Isle. I was so excited to see April who I met while stationed in Okinawa. We became like family in Japan and I still miss them every day! Even though our kids had not seen each other in two years, it was like no time had passed.

Miss Independent

Caroline flew to DC from Nashville this summer by herself to attend a summer camp. Here she is waiting to board, a little nervous but excited...
There she goes, it was hard to let her go!

Southwest of course, just can't beat the price!

Visit with the Brazleton Family!

This summer we stopped in Huntland, TN to see my cousin Marla and her family. They live on this amazing farm and my kids could not get enough! They played outside for two days riding 4 wheelers and having a blast with their cousin Holly. It was also nice to visit with my Aunt Kay and Uncle Jerry who live in Tullahoma!
