Birthday Boy and School Girl

We've had a lot to celebrate, reminisce, and get used to this week. Will turned three on Sunday and Harper started kindergarten today. Where have my babies gone?

For his birthday, Will wanted to go to "the hotel pool" and "swim with cousins and friends." Despite some obvious challenges, I did my best to fulfill his wishes.

We planned a swim date at a local hotel pool only to get rained out the day of. So the MacWherters came over for cake and ice cream instead. Later on the kids christened all Will's new trucks and tractors (which are numerous) with Play-Doh. Then we went out to Evos for a special treat: hamburgers and french fries. All in all, it was a success.   

The birthday boy!

As per his instructions, a chocolate tractor birthday cake. (Harper helped decorate.)

Everyone helped blow out the candles.

Three year old wish!

Play-Doh and tractors.

Dinner out.

We had to get up at the break of dawn to get Harper to school on time this morning. And even with 35 minutes to drive the six miles to campus, after the car line we got Harper to school exactly two minutes before school started. I'm dreading pick up.

Five years old and cute as a button on the first day of school!

Our little Sprocket! (Please ignore the toddler in his PJ's. It was all I could do this morning to get that kid to school on time the way things were.)
 We are looking forward to seeing what this next year brings!
