Go Eagles!

Elise and Avery (and Nolan!) enjoyed their first school football game this fall!  We had a family picnic before, and – to their pleasant surprise – one of their best friends, Georgia, was there too! There are more pictures to come, on a new and improved hosting site… I’ll keep you posted!

School Update

So when I picked the girls up after their first day, this is how I was greeted: They were so devastated that some kids got to stay for lunch, and it was already time for them to go home.
