In A Groove

We are slowly starting to get in a groove around here.  Two weeks into school and the girls are loving their teachers and their classmates!
Mrs. Woolley's 2nd grade class
Aunt Rebeka and Uncle Conner came to visit when they got home from their honeymoon.  The girls were super excited to be car riders, especially when it was their aunt and uncle picking them up.

getting spoiled

It was just as much of a treat for me as it was for the girls.

We all love wing night!!

Elizabeth and Blakely had a blast at Mr. John's birthday party.  Dinner, DJ, and Dancing...perfect!  Caroline and Luke had fun cutting a rug:)

I asked Elizabeth to take a selfie with me.  She wasn't really into it.

On Saturday we had a play date with Caroline's favorite boyfriend, Braxton.  They were in pre-K together and are both now at Tritt.  His mama is a lot of fun too so it's a win-win!

Back to School

reading The Night Before Kindergarten 
First day of kindergarten

Elizabeth was showing Caroline how to give a "real" smile instead of her usual "fake" smile

Then Caroline gave her best "real" smile!

I can't believe my baby started kindergarten
Elizabeth just seems so grown up... 2nd can it be?

They were both so excited about being in school together again.

We celebrated a successful first day with ice cream!

2nd grade must be really exhausting!

Summer comes to an End

pool days

These girls loved tennis camp

I took my SGA officers to do Breakout Atlanta.  They had a blast and actually got out!

Our neighborhood's Big Summer Blowout

Check out Caroline's face...ha!
Caroline's dance friends had a back to school swim party on the day they found out who their teachers would be.  These are some really excited kiddos!

cheer camp

I had to go back a week early, but the girls enjoyed another week of summer!
We went to see Bad Moms... best movie I've seen in a long time!

Hilton Head Island

Allison invited the girls and I to join them for their beach vacation.  It was the perfect week for us, and since Bert couldn't get away it was also a perfect week for a moms/kids vacation.
We got there around noon on Saturday, and hit the beach immediately!

The first night we ate at Skull Creek Boathouse.  It's right on the water with a live band and plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained.

We started each day with a morning bike ride on the beach or on the trails.
Then we would eat lunch before walking down to the beach.

soccer on the beach with friends... perfect end to a beach day

more bike riding

lots of tumbling

a little surfing
some napping

The last time we were in Hilton Head was 4 years ago.  My babies have grown so much since then.  This is Caroline wearing her sister's suit that matched the one she wore in 2012.

The Salty Dog Cafe

Melissa was in Hilton Head the very same week!  We met them in Harbor Town one night to play on the playground and listen to Greg Russell.

On the last day, we spent the entire day at Melissa's resort which was so much fun!  It made it even harder to leave.

After a full day at the beach with the Hill girls, my girls crashed as soon as they got in the car.  It made the trip home quite peaceful!
So grateful for this time spent with my girls and our friends at the beach!
