Back to School 2015!

We had a little last day of summer vacation party at Granny Bev and Grandpa's, complete with campfire and s'mores!

Emma's last first day eve and Yunice's first first day eve!
Teacher and Nurse gifts ready to go!
These kids were actually EXCITED to go to school today!! Too much family togetherness for one summer, I think. ;)
 Emma's last first day at Turnbow! I didn't even cry!
 Words can't describe how excited Aiden was for school to start! He was yelling "It's 7:19, let's move, move, move people!!"
 Pure excitement!
 More reserved, but still excited!
We found Ella in the hallway on the way to class. :)
I made Emma and Mrs. Campos take a picture since it is her last year at Turnbow!!
Great smile!
We have the most creative people on our PTA...

Happy First Day of School!!

Glamping with the Holman Family

Well, Sammy was like the rest of us... so excited about the fun camping weekend ahead of us...
 We had so much fun making lists and having planning meetings! 
We went on a special grocery-shopping-date-night...

We borrowed the camper from the Reynolds...

Spirits were high!
 We had lots of fun!
 This kid loves playing with fire!

 He found a flashlight. 
 He braved questionable water.

 We saw beautiful skies!

 Aiden tubed for the first time since we have had a boat! Yay, Grant for encouraging him!

 This cool dude drove us safely on the boat!

 Emma had a blast knee boarding! 

But this is how happy we were to return the camper! We just like sleeping in our own beds with our own showers and toilets! So we marked that off the ol' bucket list, but I don't expect that we will be doing it again any time soon!

Dirt Work

This isn't a life changing post, but I thought Matt looked like he was having so much fun on the little tractor thing that he borrowed and he did a good job straightening the dirt out from when they poured the additional concrete for our back porch earlier in the summer.

State Tournament 2015 - Go PT!

We played in the AA State Tournament in Maumelle. 
Oh, my traffic. We had to get across this bridge to get to our exit. Not good.
We were going nutso! 
But we made it on time and we were ready to go!
I keep the score, so I never get pictures during the game! If I do, I get all messed up! ;) 

 We just barely made it through our game and this rolled in...

And it POURED! We all ran into a Mexican food restaurant and bless their hearts, they worked hard to accommodate us, but their women's bathroom flooded, their men's bathroom and half of the restaurant had no power. The boys were ready to burn off some energy in the pool! 

It was HOT on Saturday! 

After Saturdays game, Coach Nick and Jill bought us pizza and we had a team meeting. It was like a dad pow-wow afterwards. It was cute. 

 Ready to go on Sunday! 
 They played hard and had fun! It was honestly the best season! We love this group!
 They were worn out on the way home!
 One of the moms on our team is such a talented photographer! She posted these on facebook.
