Watermelon Festival

One of the great things about small town living is fun festivals. Oh I know that big cities have festivals as well but in small towns it is not only a day of festivities but also a day to visit and catch up with friends. My friend Deane asked me to share a booth with her for the day and I thought why not!

 There was a car show and I personally have never attended a car show so it was fun to walk around and see these beauties.

 Deane made this yummy salsa to sale as well. She is so talented!
 Of course a small town festival wouldn't be complete without a parade.

 And what is a parade without candy that is thrown out. Another thing that was thrown out that I had never thought of before was little rubber bouncy balls. It was so fun to see the kids running to get them.

 The athletes from the local high school were all dressed out in our school colors. So excited to cheer them all on this year.

 It was a great day! So fun to spend the day hanging out, visiting and making a little bit of money. I mean really isn't that what small town living is all about?

Mom's Coffee

What is a bunch of moms to do when their kiddos start their first day of school? Celebrate of course!! My friend Deane and I hosted a great bunch of moms for a mom's coffee after the kids were dropped off. 
It was a great time to get to know and visit other moms.

Of course it isn't a real party until something gets spilled! Ha! We just added it another memory of the day.
Seriously, such a great bunch of moms that I am so blessed to have in my life!
And there was no lack of laughter which was SO good for my soul!!

Thank you Deane for helping me put together a great morning and for all of your lovely ladies that came out. I say we should do this every school quarter who is with me?

First Day of School

Last week was a kick of to another school year. It is not only a new school year but also a new school for us. One thing that is not new is the tradition we started way back when, the tradition of cinnamon rolls on the first day for breakfast.
This is the only picture the teenagers would let me take of them. Ky wasn't so happy about being up this early.

I love that on the first day of school they had prayer at the pole before anyone went in to the building. Seriously so awesome!

Ky had "meet the teacher" night the evening before school started which was so nice because she knew where her desk was, who her teacher was and even met some new friends.

On the first day I had her stand in front of school and took her picture. As I snapped her picture I realized that is how fast the first 5 years have gone by, in a snap. I have never cried when I have dropped a kiddo off at kindergarten in fact the milkman and I usually do a little high five but this one...this one was hard. I will admit I cried all the way home. Pitiful! School has been in session now for almost a week and I will tell you the kiddos are LOVING it! We are so excited for this year and are so grateful to everyone that has made us feel so welcomed.
