1 down 179 to go

just a side note... zakery decided in kindergarten that he wants to have the same backpack until he graduates from high school... so this is the same blue backpack that he wore to his first day of kindergarten. (the mesh football bag is new) GO MATTSON!!!

many of you may know that our school year was delayed by a strike in the Kent school district, but my children finally and joyfully got to attend their first day of school on Tuesday the 15th of September. they finally got to wear their new school clothes. they finally got to meet their new teachers but MOST importantly they FINALLY got to rock their new school shoes. for the past 3 weeks i have been forced to endure constant harassment due to these "new school shoes". i'm tellin ya, my life ain't no walk in the park... but if it were, i'd certainly take my kiddos with me because no one loves a good old fashion walk in the park like they do and if i take them then i'm almost certain they'll want to wear shoes and as they consider their choices of footwear..... well i think you can do the pedi math. anywhoo, i'm glad ,for the sake of my children and their feet, that school is back in session. quick run down: zak 8th, bella 4th, riley 3rd, and my blakey boy kindergarten.

My birthday girl

my sweet Bella turned (a perfect) 10 yesterday! i can't believe it! she's so beautiful and she's the greatest girl ever!(no bias) she makes my life better and i simply adore this chick! she started 4th grade, the day before, and she's lovin life... the highlights of her day... lunch with mom, sharing treats with her class and presents, no doy! her favorites were a fabulous manicure kit from uncle charlie and auntie Faye and her snuggie. WE LOVE OUR BELLA LOU!!! this is a pic of our girl on the first day of school (way back when she was 9)

L is for the way she looks at me.

yesterday our summer love turned 5 months old , she weighs in at a wild and crazy 12 whole pound, she loves her right foot and her mommy. she's gentle and divine and has securely stolen all of our hearts... little thief!

she is our tiny L.O.V.E !!!
