Alex's 1st Day of PreK

Here are a few pics of Alex's first day of PreK yesterday. Last year she went to a two day a week program, but this year it is 3 days a week. She is loving seeing all of her friends again and not having to just hang out with boring mom all day. :)

No Excuses

I won't bore you all with my pathetic reasons for not blogging. I will say that I have missed the day to day documenting of my life. It is such a great way to remember everything going on with the kids. I miss all of the fun and random pictures I took of the kids and our activities while I was blogging. So today I have decided to get back into the swing of things again. (You didn't think it would happen, did you, Jenny :)) I don't know if anyone will even be reading this anymore, but if you do, thanks for sticking with me. I missed you all. 

VERY short recap of our summer...

Our family on the 4th of July, one of our favorite days of the year.

Our trip to Minnesota with the grandparents.

We had to make a stop in South Dakota to replenish our supply of fireworks for next year. Watch out Kearney, our display will rock next year!

Sadly we had to put our cat to sleep this summer. Jim and I adopted Ozzie a month after we got married (Dec. 96). He was a wonderful cat and we still look for him every day. 

Ryan's first day as a first grader! 

Alex turned 4 on the 13th. We celebrated with a cheerleader birthday party. I bought at a school auction a birthday party with the local high school cheerleaders. They came to the party and taught the girls cheers, did a few crafts with them, and had cake and ice cream. The little girls were in awe and the big girls were loving the attention from the littles. It was a huge success!

Alex with her beloved gift, her Bitty Baby doll. Happy Birthday Sweetie!!

Next up.... Alex's first day of PreK and the Huskers' Season opener on Saturday. Go Big Red!!
