#1 First Football Weekend
I think she was trying to cross her eyes…she didn’t QUITE get there.  🙂  Last weekend was Tab’s first college game of the season.  The kiddos and I made some fun plans and had a great time while he was gone.  Friday night…we ordered pizza, took baths by 5:30 (not even kidding), and watched movies.  Nixon said, “This is the best day ever”.  

Saturday we met some friends at the splash pad for a little food and fun!  Saturday night we had some family in town visiting, so we hung out with them. 

My crazy crew before church on Sunday.  Don’t worry we found Bowen some shoes.  🙂

#2 Week 2 of Kindergarten
This girl was pumped about going back to school after a long weekend.

#3 First Day of Preschool
Nixon’s FIRST day of Pre-K!  He’s in a class with a lot of kiddos from last year AND he has Ebby Lee’s teachers (from last year).  He witnessed the CRAZY amount of pictures last week for kindergarten, so he was READY for his turn with the camera. 🙂

Somebody else started preschool this year!!!  BOWEN!  I hadn’t planned on sending him, but at the last second…I changed my mind!  I started getting information about volunteering in E’s class.  I want to be able to do that.  Bowen was at home with me a couple days while the big kids were with friends and he was SO bored alone.  Like follow me everywhere I go kind of bored.  PLUS…he’s SO used to being with at least one of the big kids that he hates being on his own.  Tab and I agreed it would be great for him.

This is what he thought about going to preschool….

FINALLY…I got this!!  Just in case you were wondering what toddler size “Extra-Wide” shoes look like…there you go.  Yes!  Who knew they even made “EXTRA WIDE”??  haha!!

Seriously…this sums up how they were both feeling.

I must report…Nix had a GREAT day!  Bowen is still undecided.  🙂

#4 Fall Clothes
This shirt just arrived for Bowen and he’s going to rock it!  Loving the stripes!!

I’m a sucker for a cute football shirt in the fall.  Right now Gymboree has a cute line of football clothes and they’re on sale!!  This shirt is $11.94!

That’s all my faves for today!!  Have a GREAT weekend!!

    Traci…YES!! I didn't know either!! But..I had him measured at Nordstrom earlier this summer. The shoes they had available in extra wide were NOT my fave. During the anniversary sale, I saw these grey New Balance came in extra wide so I snagged a pair!

    Extra wide shoes! Where did you get them. I have had to take back every cute pair of Nike's because I think my son has the fattest feet ever (I LOVE them!) Stride Right are the only shoes I could find and the are not so cute and super pricey.
