I'm so behind on blogging! Here are a few pictures to try and catch up. And this is random, but THREE of my friends went into labor today! Only one has actually had her baby so far---yay, Summer! But I thought that was wild that all 3 went into labor on the same day.

The "waterpark" in our backyard. (That's what Hayley called it.) We got it for her party and it was a HIT! Even one of her aunts got crazy and played in it. : )

I love this picture! Hayley and John have been friends since she was born! More friends!! Jack, Jillian and EmmaHayley and Jack getting ready for daddy to slide down the waterslide! This was after the party and after some much needed naps!First day of school!! I think this picture is hilarious. They are both loving school this year! Jack walks in, walks straight to his room and waits in front of the door until Ms. Heather opens it and he just walks right in w/o looking back! Ms. Heather was Hayley's teacher last year and all summer. We LOVE her!

He got this backpack for his 1st birthday---and it's perfect! : ) (He did wear shoes to school, by the way.) Aunt Tara, Uncle Dwight and Scout gave her this uniform for her b-day! Future Wildcat Cheerleader???
Or future artist??? This is her latest thing----PAINTING! We get out the paints multiple times each day. I bet she has painted at LEAST 30 things in the past week or so. It's so fun to see her discover things that she is truly interested in. I was watching her tonight and thinking, "She's actually getting pretty good at this!" Notice how much straighter her hair looks in this picture. It's called "Bed Head." The first thing she wants to do in the mornings---even before breakfast--is paint. Not sure where she gets that. The first thing I wake up thinking is, "MUST GET CEREAL." (While thinking, "I REALLY wish I could have a cinnamon roll this morning!") It's late and I'm hungry---can you tell?? : )

I love that picture of Hayley and John! It is so much fun to see their interests developing - a little artist sounds great to me! I'm always amazed at people with that talent!

Love the photos from the party! Jack still talks about it! He is loving being in YCW class with Hayley! I think painting is a wonderful things for the little ones. I taught 3's in preschool for many years, and painting was a favorite activity of mine and the kids! I had a whole wall that was "Little Masterpieces". They are always so proud of their "projects". Thanks again for having Jack at the party - he had such a great time with his buddies Hayley and John!
