Anyway.....as the title states, Monday was a day for firsts.
We have a new puppy, our FIRST dog. (technically he came to live with us last Tuesday, but you know...firsts). His name is Lewie (named after Jeres G'pa) and he's a cheagle. Not a great pic, but he really is a cute little puppy. If you know me, you KNOW I am NOT an animal person. Me no likey animals, most especially in a house. So, Jere fought hard and I caved. BUT, he lives outside, because that is where animals belong. However, I won't lie, he sort of makes me feel bad for him, 'cause he's really sweet and cute. I'll try and take a better picture someday soon.
Maggie gave us her FIRST completely unsolicited, posed and SMILING photo. She WANTED to take the pic. It may be because Brooklyn and Jere were taking pics for their big day, but still, it was cute.
Brooklyns FIRST big day of school. She gets to go to Miss Ranelle (worlds GREATEST preschool teacher) two days a week. I can NOT believe my "baby" who came to me at 5 mos. is now THREE and in preschool. She was pretty darn excited for her big school adventure. It's so fun because she is in class with her cousins Jayce, Dane, Morgan AND Owen, how fun is that?
I think Jere was MORE excited for his FIRST day of "big boy" college at ASU than any kid going to kindegarten. He's proudly wearing his ASU shirt, his smaller jeans, his backpack, etc.
School supplies and smiles,
