American Girl Cafe Date

The day before the girls started back to school, we had a lunch date at the American Girl Cafe in Alpharetta.  The girls were so excited to have doll clothes that matched their own clothes, and they loved that their babies could sit with them at lunch.  It was such a great time and a perfect way to end the summer!

We took a ride on the Merry-Go-Round after lunch

First Day of School 2015-2016

It was an EARLY morning...Alli wasn't too happy about waking up before the sun :)
On Monday, August 10th, Grant started his first day in the 18-24 month class.  He was so excited, and it's great because his classroom is the same room as it is on Sundays in the church nursery.  He looks like such a big boy now versus his first day of school last year!

On Thursday, August 13th, Lila began Kindergarten and Alli started Pre-K 4 at Mount Paran Christian School.  I cannot believe that my first baby is officially in Elementary School, and she is SO excited! Alli has the same teacher that Lila had last year, who is absolutely amazing, so Alli has had such a fun first week.  I am so excited for this year, and I know that they will have an awesome time!
(It was pitch black when we left for school, so we did our "first-day-of-school" pictures down in the studio)

Back to School Night at MPCS 8*10*15

Everyone was looking forward to Back to School night at Mount Paran so that we could find out who the girls were going to have for teachers for the new school year as well as who would be in their class.  Lila got Mrs. Lovern and Alli got Ms. Larkin (who Lila had last year), and both girls were so excited.  They both have several friends from the previous year in their classes again, so they are happy to see them again as well as meet new friends.  We are so excited for this Kindergarten and Pre-K 4 year!
