Aug 11 back to school night
school starts the 16th 

No post code envy here ya'll! We are loving our life here in Rogers!

We have moved into OUR HOME and are finally settled in Arkansas after a 6 month transition home from Seattle. We are so happy to be settled...just in time for the beginning of the school year! Yay!

I think the boys are a little tired of all the heavy lifting though haha

We landed in Rogers just a minute or two at the most from our cousins Jonah and Sophie! The first Friday after our move, we had a little watch party for the Decendents 2 premier! 
Sophie helped me make homemade pizzas :)
It's so fun to be able to do this again. When Mike and I got married, we were neighbors with David and Tesha...and now were are here and neighbors again! Just with a few more kids this time :)
 Also...I found these little gems on my phone from the kids this summer haha.

Crazy hair don't care!
The kids have been getting settled into the new house and loving having all of their stuff again. I'll have to post pics of the house when we get it all together. 

And I leave you with this hilarious girl...she's a hoot!

And Olli is "gansta" now thanks to her sissy :)

Hello July!

Welp. July makes 5 months since we moved home! We have one week and then will be moving into our house. Mike is settled into his job and is loving. it. I'm gearing up for the move and then will be working furiously to get ready for the beginning of the school year which will also be my first year in second grade. I'm a little overwhelmed with all the details but I know it will all get done and I'm so excited. I just have to remember this is a good stress :) Here is how we've spent July so far...

On the last day of June, we celebrated niece Sophie's 8th birthday! Does she have enough cousins?

We paid a visit to Granny and Grandpa one day and she showed me a picture she found in the paper...Olli's twink!
 We had firecracker fun with the cousins at Mimi and Pops...

and spent the 4th at Uncle Greg and Aunt Delynn's. Not to many pics though because 4 kids and 2 non swimmers. Nuts. 
Talk about disappointment. I ordered these cute little (literally) donut swimming rings. More like arm rings. 
 When the rain kicked in we all zipped ourselves into the patio cover and played catch phrase outside in a torrential downpour :)
 Swimming in the rain!
 Aunt Tesha and Olli have become quite the snuggle buddies!
All for now...better get packing for the big move :)

June Photo Dump

Here's your daily dose of adorableness. You're welcome :)
 My city kids are obsessed with all of the turtles and frogs...the copperhead in the backyard though? Not so much.
 A follow up group shot of our family reunion last month on Mike's side...
and this guy :)

And more pool time fun...

 Ella's awesome teacher hosted a summer pool party at her house! It was fun for the kiddos to meet up again.

 We also celebrated Mom's birthday this month at Kathy's new house on the patio with nan pizza, wine and good friends!
 Mom even had a floating candle in her wine :)
 And then cousin fun and Mimi Camp!

I see you July!
