Celebrating Back to School

Well - summer - we have kicked you to the curb.  

We had such a great summer! The last week we just laid low.  Will Holden had a stomach virus so we spent a lot of time in our pajamas.  I felt guilty for not doing "all the things" until I remembered all the fun things we did this summer.  I'm so grateful I had this time with my kids! 

We packed in a little swimming on Friday to end the summer.  

Saturday we drove to Little Rock for the day for a family reunion with my dad's side of the family.  The kids had fun playing with their baby cousins.  The little girls are my first cousins' kids.  

My girls LOVE babies so they were thrilled to play with my baby cousin's baby.  (My baby cousin is in her 30's. ha!) 

My grandpa had seven brothers and sisters.  These are just some of them and their kids and grand kids and great  grand kids.  We had to wear name tags because it's been a while since we have all been together and it gets confusing who belongs to who.  It was fun to see everyone.  It's been maybe 10 years.  It made me miss my grandparents a lot.  

On the way home, we stopped at one of my favorite catfish places.  I haven't been there in years and it was as delicious as I remember.  The hushpuppies are to die for.  I told Scott that even though I could eat fried fish every week - it's one of those meals I REALLY can only eat about once a year.

And when  I tried to take a picture with my baby boy - this is what happens! 

I loved seeing my first cousin Michelle.  She grew up in Panama but in the summers we would spend a couple of weeks together at our grandparents with our brothers and it was always so fun.  Some of my best childhood memories are those summers.  

Today was promotion Sunday.  The kids all moved up to new classes and tomorrow we start school! It's a fresh new year and we are excited!!! 

And to celebrate the new school year - I have a fun give away! 

One of my favorite local stores REMEDY ROAD is giving away this great backpack and a $100 gift card!
