First Day of Preschool

Jacob and Claire started preschool last Tuesday... they love it. Yes, it is the middle of the year, we had to wait until we felt like Jacob was potty trained enough to send him. They go to the same preschool but have different teachers and they go 2 1/2 hours two days a week. I am loving how much I can accomplish with 5 hours to myself in a week... everything takes so much less time when I do it alone! Also, this really is the best picture I was able to get.

Six Years and Counting

On the 15th Jared and I celebrated 6 blissful years of marriage! Yes, I said blissful. Anyhow, Amber was in town and (with some help) she watched our kids for us so we could have a quick getaway. We drove to the coast and stayed in a little hotel in Lincoln City. Here is the view from our room balcony... (isn't he cute!)
We really enjoyed time relaxing, eating yummy seafood at a nice restaurant, laughing, watching movies while it rained all night and then taking a walk on the beach in the morning after sleeping in.
Our room even had a fireplace and we tried out some different settings on our new camera and tried our new mini tripod.
It was a great weekend for us both and we very much appreciate our babysitters, our kids were so mad when we got home because they would much rather have spent the rest of the weekend with their babysitters. Heres to six years, I love you Jared and can't wait to see what the next six bring!

I love him!

He has a very expressive face.
He is also wearing my rainboots. This is his "cheese" face.

I also love our new camera.

She's a princess, and she knows it!

Yes, it is a bride's dress, no, she does not know it. Yes she is a tomboy too, but a princess tomboy.
