GREAT adventures

The Sparkles have been blessed to visit with their Great Aunts and Uncles this summer.

Their adventures have included:
Beef and Boards with Great Aunt Margie to see Mary Poppins

 Trips to the zoo (this picture makes me laugh :)

 Playing on the patio
 And the Children's Museum with Great Aunt Nancy and Uncle Kurt
They really enjoyed the Terra Cotta warrior exhibit

 Passport to China
 And digging in dirt

 And hot summer days would not be complete without playing in the sprinkler

We are blessed with the love of family and the memories we create together.

1st grader

Lillian was very excited to meet her 1st grade teacher at Back to School night.
She is very nervous about 1st grade but she said she was willing to try it out.

Here we are grabbing a quick snuggle after dropping off her supplies and meeting her teacher.

 Waiting for the bus on the first day of school

The Dentist

Why make an appointment for only one of your children when you can make an appointment for all 3 Sparkles on the same day at the same time :) at least that was my brilliant idea 6 months ago when I scheduled the kids dentist appointment.

After just 3 visits... 18 months, Cooper even let the dentist look at his teeth.

Here he is watching Lillian from a safe distance away

 Even turtles get their teeth clean
 Having his teeth counted
 Now for the actual cleaning... he needed Mama to sit with him to keep him safe
 He loved the spit sucker :)

 All done... until our next appointment
