Sea World Vacation

We had another fantastic time in San Antonio visiting Sea World! We all LOVE going to see the shows and go on some rides. We enjoy being able to visit with our friend Chuck who is so awesome to allow the girls (and us) to have the experience of touching the whales! What an amazing opportunity for the girls to learn about the beluga whales in a way that really brings them to life! Thanks Chuck! It was a weekend filled with lots of laughs, making somores and just hanging out together! Some of the best times and I'll cherish them forever!!! Hope everyone had a great labor day weekend as well.

Howdy Friend Day!

Today was "Howdy Friend" day at Sydney's school so they were asked to dress like cowgirls and cowboys! She wanted a pink cowgirl had but, no need for cowgirl boots (thankfully because I didn't have either). She had a great time! I happend to see her teacher tonight and she told me that Sydney wore her hat all day! What fun. Sydney is really enjoying school and I think is starting to make some new friends too!

1st Day of Kindergarten.....

I can't believe that my little girl is already off to Kindergarten! I know that many of my friends have already gone thru this and more with their kids...some even going off to college this year! It was a great morning walking her to school. Samantha was great too...although she wasn't very happy with her outfit today - she said it was plain! She's now wearing a uniform being in the big kid class at her school. My little "fashionista" is going to have some challenges the next 2 years I think. I promised her I would let her wear fancy socks and fun hair bows! Not sure that is going to fix it but, it's all I can do for now! I'm anxiously waiting to go pick up Sydney and hear all about her first day! Yes, I took today off work - just too much to get packed in today.

Ready, Set, Go....

Well, the cleaning is done, the food has been bought - now the waiting for Neal's family to arrive. it's going to be a very busy weekend around here! 14 Gibbs all together in one place...what fun! We'll be bom barding the Arboretum for some family pictures, Six Flags for some screams and roars and hanging in the pool and bbq in the back yard. I just wish it was a few degrees cooler!

Sydney's 5!!!

Wow - how fast time goes by! Sydney turned 5 on Saturday and had a blast with her friends! All she asked for was a pony ride for her party...well, she and her friends had 2 ponies for 2 hours and did those ponies ever work!! She is still saying thank you for a great day! She's grown up so fast now that she knows she is 5! Today she asked me when she gets to ride in the way back of our suburban. When I told her not for a while she said, maybe when I'm 10! So, all day she's talking about things she can do when she's 10! Wow, she's not even been 5 for 24 hours and she's ready to move on. Not me! She also swam the length of our pool tonight without stopping to "rest"! That was fun to see the excitement in her eyes was priceless. She's also working on her handstands under the water - ofcourse makes mom nervous but, I guess I'd better get used to that one! Sydney Grace - I love you more than I ever thought I could! May God protect you all the days of your life and you always keep Him close! I love you sugars! Mommy.
