Family Night

For the past 4 or 5 months, Adam, Dallas, and I have been spending each Friday night together for family night. Most nights we make some sort of fun dinner (mostly homemade pizzas) and play games. Lately Dallas' favorite games are Slamwich, Battleship, Tip It, and Blokus. Tonight we went to Sonic, then headed to Green Acres park for a walk and bike ride. Here are a few pics from tonight. We really cherish our time together and have a lot of fun. I thank God everyday for our family and the blessing it brings to my life.

One quick picture with mommy

Can you see his license plate? It reads, "Boys Rule." Fitting, don't you think?

First fall

Second tumble

I'm not hurt, ready to try again!!

Dallas' First Day of Kindergarten - ETCA - 8.18.2010

I can't express how proud I am of Dallas and how well he did today. I was curious how the morning would go, but when I went to his room to wake him up he raised right up and said, "I want some cornflakes!" He ate a good breakfast and got dressed with ease. (I hope every morning is this easy!) We took some pictures and then headed off to school. He's been at ETCA for 3 years now, and we're so happy he's able to start kindergarten there. His school is like a big family. With the exception of a few students, I know all the kids in his class and their parents. It's such a blessing to have him in such a loving and nurturing environment. We are so blessed! A couple of years ago, his school bought some land and this year his campus finally got to move to the new location. Although everyone is really busy getting their classroom ready and the office's in order, I think this has been a good change overall. His classroom is bright and exactly what you think a kindergarten class should look like. His teacher, Ms. Tesseyman, is friendly and I think Dallas will do great in her class. Every year I'm going to take a picture of Dallas on his first day of each grade. This morning we walked him to his classroom and he walked right in like he'd known the place for forever. I'm so excited for him and can't wait to see all he learns this year!
