Levi's half birthday!

We enoyed our annual "half birthday" celebration with Levi yesterday! One of his desires was to go target shooting. Our planning (and lack thereof) conspired with our budget (and lack thereof!) to make that a less than ideal prospect. We compromised by starting out our time with a trip to Bass Pro Shops where we did some simulated target shooting ~ which proved quite fun!

Of course, we HAD to eat lunch from Taco Bell on the way there (because Levi's favorite food in the world is tacos!). Next up was torturing the adults at Jump Street (that place is made for YOUNG people!) Truth be told, we had a ton of fun playing dodge ball and watching Levi try his hand at "bull riding". Usually we conclude our half birthday celebrations with some kind of sweets. Levi doesn't have much of a sweet tooth, but he loves pomegranates ~ so he delighted himself in one before we headed home. Fun time with a fun young man!

Another school year has begun!

Another school year is upon us and (somehow!) this year my YOUNGEST child is officially a BIG kindergarten girl! We won't even think about the fact that her sister is in SEVENTH grade already! Oh my! Anna loves school and practically lives to do crafts and art projects, so she is a happy girl at the arrival of a new school year! All of the kids love our weekly enrichment program and have some really dear friends (whom they've shared the past 5+ years with at enrichment)~ so the excitement is unanimous as they anticipate what this school year holds.
