Really hard to believe that my little man is ready for 4 school, but it's true (and probably a little kindergarten stuff thrown in too)!! He was so ready for his first day of school! I think he wore his backpack around the house for 20 minutes before we headed down to the classroom:)
A few changes had to be made to our classroom this year to step it up into 4 school! Here's a look into our rockstar classroom!!!

This morning Kailyn started ballet!!! She has missed dancing so much this summer and couldn't wait to wear a leotard, tights and of course her ballet bow! This year due to the economy and this mom needing a crown, we made the decision to try a new dance place. So this year Kailyn is taking dance from Zeeland Rec and so far (too soon to tell) Kailyn loves it!
Last week Thursday night Will began practicing his favorite sport....FOOTBALL!!!! Holland Rec offers a program called Smart Start Football for boys 3-5 and it's a perfect way to have Will learn the basics of football! Each practice is designed to get a little bit harder...so he'll be challenged as well.

I can't believe that my baby girl is already old enough to be a kindergartener, but today was the day that we started a new chapter in our daily lives! We are so proud of our little princess and she was so excited that I had to find a count down chart, like the one in the first few pictures, to help us stay focused!
My little people!
For Kailyn's first day of Kindergarten I asked her teacher if we could make and bring a special first day treat!!! We found this adorable recipe in the September issue of "Family Fun!" It's an oreo cookie dipped (more like spooned so the cookies didn't fall apart) in red chocolate wafers and then embellished with mini m&m's, green stabursts and a pretzel stick to look like an apple.
It's pretty typical for our family to end the summer with the Hudsonville Fair! So we headed out one evening while the fair was in town. We visited lots and lots of animals, sat on every tractor possible, got our faces painted and rode on a crazy nascar carnival ride:)
