2nd Grade

This is Jess...the second grader! It sure is hard to believe that she is old enough for this! She had been looking forward to the start of school. We had all her supplies. We had found her classroom and met her teacher. She even set her alarm clock to get up on her own. And she did!

So here is to another school year!
Her shirt by the way says "semi-pro coaster rider." We took a few days and went to Holiday World in Santa Claus, IN. (yes, there really is) Everyone had a great time, but Jess was over the top! She was now tall enough to ride EVERYTHING! And riding everything is what she did.

It's A Dog's Day

It's a birthday today! Duchess is 8 years old. The first "baby" of the family. What a good dog she has been. She watches over the kids when they are playing outside and gets right in the middle of us "ruff"-housing. We can count on her to announce when daddy comes home with her high pitch puppy bark because she is so excited to see him.

For her birthday the kids sang Happy Birthday to her and gave her presents. Jess picked out a new rawhide bone and Brandon picked out bone shaped biscuits with frosting and sprinkles.

Happy Birthday Duchess!
