First Day of School

We have officially entered the world of public school. Ella had her first day of Kindergarten last week. She was so excited and She even asked to ride the bus home, which I was a little nervous about. Aaron and I were able to drop her off at least. Ty was not happy that Ella got to ride the bus and he didn't. It was a good thing that his preschool started the next day. Both kids love their teachers. Ella came home so hyped up last week from school. This week she has been a lot more tired when she gets home. Ty is still trying to understand that he only gets to go to school twice a week. Ty also gives us a lot more details about school than Ella does. I would have thought it would be the opposite, but Ty has become quite the chatter box.

First Day of School Pictures

We are pretty much ready for the baby. I am officially 37 weeks, so the baby is welcome any time now, but I am sure he won't make an appearance till closer to my due date. The Dr. expects him to be 8+ lbs. I am so scared of having a 10 lb. baby. So I may take the Dr. up on getting induced a week early. I am still feeling sick and am physically and emotionally ready for this baby to come. I was able to complete all the projects I had for the baby.

Here is a pic of the blessing outfit that I made for the baby, as well as a blanket to match.

We had a wonderful vacation in Utah and California this summer. We headed up to Utah the end of June to attend Mackenzie and Kyle's wedding (my step-sister and her husband). It was so much fun to be there for that. Aaron then left for Houston, since he has a something important to do. I think he called it a job. :-)  The kids and I stuck it our for a few more weeks in Utah. While it is hard to be away from home and especially Aaron for so long, it was nice to be in a place that has a basement and cools down at night. It has been pretty miserable being pregnant in Texas for the summer.

This is the kids and me getting ready to watch the Fourth of July fireworks.

Here is the handsome Ty boy at Kenzie's wedding. I absolutely love him in his bow tie. 

This is probably the best belly picture you will get from me. I am not a fan of documenting how big I am getting. The photographer was getting a picture of all the nieces and nephews from our side. They didn't want to leave out the baby, so I am standing awkwardly close to Kenzie so the photographer could get the belly in the picture while cropping me out later. 

 Aaron then flew back up near the end of July and we drove out to San Diego with Aaron's sister Courtney for Aaron's family reunion.We rented out a beach house and had almost 30 people hanging out together. It was loud and crazy and fun! We went to the beach a couple of times and I have to say the water is just too cold to enjoy for me. Ella said she had fun at the beach, but she didn't like the water or the sand.... hmmm... I am not sure what she liked about the beach then. But she loved playing with her cousins.

I hung out with this little guy a lot during the reunion. He is the newest addition to the Boyce family. We got along well. He wanted to be held, I needed a constant reminder of why I was pregnant. It was a mutually beneficial relationship. And who can't help but love on such a cute baby. 

 We are all doing well getting back to the daily races. Hopefully this early morning wake up time will become less painful as we go. I am sure the next time I update this, I will be in the hospital, staring at a brand new baby and no longer feeling sick.

You are a saint! For real. I hate being pregnant, but my sickness is tolerable. Your pregnancies sound so rough. Maybe the sickness makes your kids gorgeous, because that's what they are! It was great seeing you this summer! You and your family are gorgeous! Love the stories about your kids. :) take care, missy!

Oh, and that blessing outfit is to DIE for! You are ridiculously talented!
