My first born is SEVEN years old! September 13th was Hunter's 7th BIRTHDAY! He is creative, funny, smart, brave, adventurous, a leader, thoughtful, protective, funny, and so much more! He woke up to a decorated hallway and big boy presents...a hat and a watch! Then, on our way to the bus, we found a gift Uncle Greg left outside for him to start his day!!

Let's start with the stitches! Yep, we had our first emergency room visit!! A few days after school started, Hunter was barefoot walking on our neighbors slackline. He was alone while I was inside gathering stuff for their football practice! Then, I hear screaming and Faith Ann ran inside to tell me "mommy, there is SO much blood!" I run out to see Hunter hopping around with blood pouring out of the bottom his foot. Yes, it was that deep! Luckily, a neighbor was driving by when it happened and was able to take care of Trent and Faith Ann while I scooped up Hunter and took him to the Texas Childrens Urgent Care down the street from us!

First grade, Pre-K and 3 year old Panda Class! Just like that...I have all 3 kids in school! Hunter is in 1st grade with Mrs. Ghiotto. Trent is in PreK at Rummel Creek with Ms. Hansen, which was Hunter's PreK teacher! And Faith Ann has started school at church 2.5 days a week with Ms. Sarah in the Panda Class.
Faith Ann said she wants to be a "mommy and a daddy" when she grows up! My sweet girl! This was a big day for us! For 7 years straight, I have had a little human echoing my voice with the sound of footsteps following behind, and I always have a hand to hold. Not one day have I eaten lunch alone or been in my car alone! This girl has literally been glued to my side for 3 years. She is only going to school for 2.5 days a week, but to me, that is a lot! I remember mom telling me "let your babies be a baby as long as possible!" So, I did! Each season of life has its bittersweet moments!I am so happy for her, and she is ready, but it is still bittersweet!
I have a grateful heart and priceless memories as the next chapter in life begins! I loved every second of having my babies home with me!! The simple everyday moments is what I will treasure the most! However, I know there is much more to come! That is officially a wrap on summer 2017! They have all grown and continue to blossom into amazing and unique little people! Happy first day of school to my loves, my sidekicks who are ready to spread their wings!

Cousins....my kids best friends! They adore their cousins SO much! So, I hosted "cousin camp" at my house! I made matching shirts. We played flag football, ate smores, wrapped houses, made a huge pallet, and snowcones for breakfast! It was so memorable and a highlight for our summer!
