Fun Run and Other Fun

 Aaron just loves the Fun Run at his school.  He raises money for the school by running up to 35 laps and it's just a highlight for him.  These are the only two pictures I took on my phone, I will upload my camera pictures separately. 
Janice brought us some taco soup this week.  Abigail liked it alright.
 Lunch with Aaron yesterday

The Week

 My picture taking in February has not improved much, especially given that today was Sports day at church and the kids looked soooo cute and I didn't take a single picture and we had a Super Bowl Party after church and I didn't take any pictures!  But it was FUN!  Aaron wore a Dolphins Jersey, of course, and Abigail had on an Ole Miss dress.  These pictures are from when I had lunch with Abigail this week (she wanted a picture of her and her teacher, too), but I didn't take any when I had lunch with Aaron this week.  I am soooo going to miss Abigail's teacher next year.  Aaron had her too and it's going to be hard to say goodbye.  I can not believe we are almost done with Rockenbaugh Elementary!

This week was the 100th Day of School.  Abigail has a 100 Awesome Days of School shirt that was Katie Grace's.

Just getting ready Friday!
A picture Abigail brought home from school this week.
 A text exchange with Julie regarding said picture.

 She slept in it with the Princess Sophia doll that came with it.

Some Pictures

I haven't been taking pictures lately and I'm sad because I am missing some great moments.  I had lunch with Aaron this week and Dee and Papa came today and Abigail and I had some special outings.  So I need to get back on it, but this is what I have.

This was Abigail walking out of the post office and she just looked so grown up to me, somehow.  I loved her dress.  And, those boots.  My word we have gotten some use out of those.  And EVERYONE compliments her on them!

 Chuck E Cheese with our Sunday School class!


 The kids were out of school Monday and we had a lot of running around to do and ended up eating lunch at McAlister's.
 Library time after school this week.

 She earned 100 marbles and got this at Toys R Us!

Ready for the cold.  We are SOOOO blessed that Uncle Doug sends us warm winter coats!
 And this was just after school one day.  With socks on her arms for gloves.  So people wouldn't get hit by her powers.

 This was SO fantastic.  Aaron was the Mystery Reader in Abigail's class this week.  They were both so proud!



 He did great!



A Friday Treat

 Town square to go to the library and get Aaron's hair cut.
 Ready for dance this morning!

My Girl

 I had a sweet lunch with Abigail this week at Corner Bakery and here she is in a new outfit from Grandma!

Jory was out of town this weekend, which is always a big bummer, but we had a sweet weekend.  The kids got a package from Gymboree from Grandma Sheri and this dress was in there with a sweet yellow sweater with daisy buttons!  Very Easter cute and there was a matching shirt for Aaron that he LOVED.  He wore it to church today!
It was cold and I made my first ever split pea soup.  I think I'd make my grandma proud!
I visited an older couple from our church this week who felt very strongly that Aaron should be reading Rush's historical children's books, of which I was unware.  They also were somewhat doubtful that our library would carry said books.  So on Saturday, I received a very heavy package from Amazon with these (and two more) hard back Rush books addressed to Master Aaron and Abigail! SO thoughtful.
And Aaron LOVES them.  He isn't putting them down!
The kids earned dinner out last night and chose Howard Wang's
They are every single bite of their enormous meals!  Aaron is really growing right now!
At church today, Aaron read his book until service started.  And here is his new shirt!

It has seemed like a crazy week!  I guess just getting back in the swing of things.  And one day I looked out the window and saw this. 

Monday we went to Chuck E Cheese for the last day of break and had a really good time.


Back to school!
 Oh and Day One

Today we had our Thursday Play Date and it was so sweet!  
 I make a calendar for each of the kids each year.  I keep track of what they do each day and as I was writing on Aaron's this morning I just fell in love with this picture all over again!
 Aaron painting Abigail's nails.  Could you just die?



 Aaron with Avery (Luke and Preston's sister) at the park today.  So sweet!

It's been a fun but busy week!
