Mason's 1st day of school







My little boy is growing up!!! Mason is now in the bigger class at Head Start. I am excited because I know he will be learning more skills to get him ready for Kindergarten.
He was so different this year. There was no clinging. He barely even hugged me goodbye. :-(
Yep he is growing up and I am happy and sad about it.

1st grade




I can't believe my little girl is in first grade already! Again, Brook was so excited. I woke up at 6:30 this morning because I was too excited to sleep anymore. When I went to wake Brook up she was already dressed with her backpack and shoes on! I have no clue how early she woke up but she was ready. Ha ha.
Its always a mad house in the elementary school but we made it to her locker and classroom in time to take a couple pictures and say good luck. I am sure she will have a blast. Brook loves school.

funny story

So I was in the shower on Saturday night getting ready for the night and Jer walked into the bathroom and told me hey hurry up and get dressed. We are going out. To my surprise we drove all the way to Yuma (about 30 min) and he took us to a Mexican restaurant there called El Diportivo. It was good. We were almost the only ones there and they had a band playing in the next room. I was talking with Jer when I noticed the table next to us started to giggle and Brooklyn was turned around facing them. I asked Brook if she was smiling at them. She said nope i'm singing. I said what are you singing and she sang to me.
"Hey slow sister
Aint that mister mister
on the radio..." (From Train)
I couldn't help myself, Jer and I laughed so hard. I told brook did you know it was hey SOUL sister?? She said Ohhhh.
Oh Brooky! You crack me up!

Playing with Dallas





Last night as the kids were getting ready for bed, I gave Dallas a bath and he was in such a good mood that I couldn't resist taking a few pictures. Lately Dal has been trying to crawl but he uses his head to move his arms. Its so funny! He loves to scrunch up his nose and almost snort when he's excited too. We sure love this little guy!

7 months old!

Our little Dallas B. is seven months old today!
He is now sitting up like a pro. Dal weighs 17lbs and is 27 1/2 inches long.
He loves to eat fruits and carrots and squash. He doesn't like green beans and peas but I get the mixed veggies and he can't tell he's eating it. he he!
Lately he has been trying to crawl. He'll sit himself up on his feet and knees and push himself forward using his head as leverage! I have never seen a baby do this but he seems to like it. Last night he jumped just like a frog on our bed. I wish I had gotten a picture of it! Brooklyn loves to get him to snort like a piggy and Dallas likes the reaction he gets when he makes his scrunched up nose face. He is loving the water more and more lately and tries to grab it or splash it every time he gets around it. Bath time is becoming more and more of a favorite now. Dallas has quite a personality and our whole family is enjoying each stage as he grows! We can't wait to see what he'll do next.

Sterling fair and concert!

Saturday afternoon we went to the Sterling fair in about 104 degree weather! The kids were roasting and us adults were DONE in just about an hour or so. The kids got to ride a couple rides. That's all we could afford! Dang, tickets used to be so cheap. Now they are a dollar per ticket. and three tickets per ride!! I think the best ride was the free tractor ride going into the fair from the parking lot. ha ha! We should have just saved our money and rode that one back and forth all day. It was shady and we could all get on.




































After the fair, we got a babysitter for the kids and Jer's parents, his sisters Jillian and Courtney and Jer and I all went to a Josh Turner/Luke Bryan concert. It was my 1st big concert since I was 14! I have to admit, I loved Luke but was not very entertained with Josh. The only songs I liked of Joshes were Long Black Train and Dance. Everything else was just way too slow for how late it was and I was just about falling asleep. Maybe I'm getting old. ha ha!
