The Perfect Saturday

Family Bike Ride at Lake was so beautiful!
My little man likes his bike long as he is moving.
Sisters stopping to take a break.
I love how Eden holds her tongue like this when she is working at something! My uncle Mike was also known for this!

What a wonderful Saturday!! Isaiah did not wake me up until 8:45 and when I went in to get him I could hear the girls giggling in Lily's room. They both slept in there so I opened her door and there were barbies everywhere! Eden said we've been up for a while but we wanted to let you sleep! How sweet is that! Then Aaron brought us breakfast from Bojangles. It was a gorgeous day in Georgia so we decided to take advantage of it. Aaron loaded up all the bikes and we headed to Lake Hartwell to the bike trail. Lily only took her training wheels off a couple of weeks ago so we have really been wanting to go and let her have a chance to really ride. We ended up riding over 2.5 miles, which I think is really good for a 7 and 5 year old! We had a wonderful time. The girls got a little tired but did not complain. Aaron had bought our his and hers bikes for our anniversary this summer. Not too romantic, right? But I am actually loving having them! So much fun for the family. Lucky for Isaiah his seat is on Aaron's bike and not mine! :-) I do good just to take care of myself! haha Aaron said that Isaiah would lean up and pat him on the back every once in a while on the ride. So sweet. When we got back to the car and were loading up, Isaiah grabbed his blanket and laid his head down in the parking lot and started sucking his thumb!! I guess riding back there is hard work!

I have a 2nd grader?? How did this happen?

My sweet 2nd grader at her desk, all ready to go.
My sleepy girls ready for school! We had a 1st day celebration breakfast!
Showing off her new lunch bag.

My precious Eden Jewell started 2nd grade on August 9th. She was like an old pro going into school that morning. No long good byes for her. She was ready! She missed her friends this summer and was ready for the social life to get going! We are so proud of you, Eden! You are growing into a very sweet young lady! We love you.

Happy First Day of Kindergarten, Lily!!!

Happy 1st day of Kindergarten, Lily Grace!
Not too sure about this school thing, Mom.

On August 9th our sweet Lily Grace started Kindergarten at Barnes Academy. She is doing great! The first few mornings she was a little unsure. She was very brave, though. The first day after we took a few pictures and got her settled in I got ready to tell her good-bye. She looked up at me with those big brown eyes and said "You're not staying?" I don't know what she was thinking! It was so sweet and innocent. She is a doll. We are so proud of her. Eden has been so kind and helpful getting her started at school. Lily loves that she and Eden go to the same school now. They are sweet sisters. (Most of the time) :-) I have not been able to blog in a long time but am going to try to do better! Not making any promises though!!
