Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

"End" of summer

We had a special "end"of summer weekend this past weekend! It is only sort of the end of summer since it is still 100+ EVERY DAY! :(

However, our school, along with all of Texas is back in session so to a large degree summer of 2011 is behind us. As a family we have had such an incredible summer. An amazing vacation, tons of swimming, lots of time with extended family, and of course finding out about baby #5.... Etc. The weather has made it unbearable in so many ways but that's Texas.... You just deal!

This weekend as a end of summer / back to school celebration we let the girls each pick something special they wanted as a little gift. Anna decided on roller skates and Serene chose a princess night gown. They are both thrilled with their choices!

Then on Sunday night we let them pick their favorite take-out so they chose spaghetti from a little Italian hole in the wall down the street. It was even yummy for a pregnant mom who is grossed out by just about everything right now.

We had such a fun weekend and then Monday morning bright and early we started our new school year. Our first day was amazing and everyone was excited for the next day. I even purchased Preschool curriculum for Serene and Ben for the year and they loved it. It is simple and doesn't take long but they felt important and I know they learned a few things too... So it was a win win!!!

Now if it could just start feeling like fall it would really make it nice!! :)
