Back to School

It's back to school today!  Here is Calleigh, my first grader, in her classroom.

And Carson, my third grader, in his classroom.

And the annual picture in front of the fireplace.

Oh, wait, that's just us being silly!  Here are the real annual pictures:

Happy Back To School Day!

It's Been A While

It has been a while since I posted anything on the blog.  This summer has been packed with so much fun, that I have not taken the time to write because I've been so tired!  :-)  Anyway, here is a brief synopsis. . .

This summer we were able to travel back to Texas for a family vacation.  It is always good to be surrounded by those we love in the familiarity of home.  Despite being native Texans, we were able to do something we've never done. . .touring the new Dallas Cowboys stadium.  This stadium is massive and the details to every inch inside and out are unbelievable!  So, here is the family far enough away from the stadium to get a picture with it in the background:

Calleigh learned how to jump off the diving board.  She is a great little swimmer, but she decided back in May that when we went to Texas for the summer, she wanted to learn how to jump off the diving board.  With that goal in mind, she conquered her fears and jumped over and over and over.  Way to go Calleigh!

Calleigh and Carson spent a lot of time with their cousins.  Here are a couple of pics that my mom took of the kids with their cousin, Sydney.  I didn't take my camera to Texas (I know!), so I am relying on pictures from other family members.  If you have any, please send them my way!

The rest of the summer has been packed with visits to the beach, Disneyland, Six Flags (this week!), gymnastics, karate, swimming pools, and hanging with friends.  It's been a great summer - short, but great.  In only 9 days the summer will end and our school year will begin.  Look out first grade and third grade.  The Crumrine kids are on the way!
