WHEN THE BOYS ARE AWAY, THE GIRLS WILL PLAY!

Well school is back in session and this year we have both of the boys going full day. So it was just the girls home today. We went and got some needed shopping done then it was time for Ava to take a nap. Addie and I fixed up her bike and then made some fruity rice krispy treats to suprise the boys when they got home.
Christian is starting the 4th grade and Isaac is starting the 1st grade



Isaac's teacher is a lady who used to be in our ward, she is going to be a very fun teacher. She mailed the kids a pirate party invitation to meet at their classroom at 8:20 am for the first day of school. Needless to say this got Isaac very excited to go, when we got to his classroom this morning, his teacher was dressed up like a pirate. He came home with a bunch of pirate loot, he said it was a very fun day.


Christian was just relieved to find out that his teacher was nice, he had heard rumors that she was the strictest teacher in the school. He said his teacher said that she is an elem. teacher because she loves to be goofy. Oh man, can you imagine these two together?! Mrs. Goofy and Christian, the class clown. This should be interesting!! He was happy to see that there are a lot of his friends in his class this year.




The other day Andy had the boys for a chunk of the day so the girls and I went to the local gourmet cupcake cafe, The Cocoa Bean. Their cupcakes are deadly and worth every calorie!! You know how I love cupcakes and I think I have fulfilled my quest to find the perfect cupcake. If you are ever passing through, you have to stop here!

Thank you for letting us in on the back to school excitement. Isaac's teacher must be just wonderful. What a great way to break the "first day of school" barrier for the little ones! How interesting that Christian remembered his teacher saying that she likes to be goofy! I love the way you made the day special for Addie by having her help make the treats for the boys. What a great mother you are!
