School Days

It's been a little while now since I've been in school and had my first day of the school year, but today I'm thinking about my beautiful nieces and nephew as they started back to school today.  Well the little one still only goes to day care just a couple of times a week.  I know they were really excited and even a little nervous about the first day of school, and I'm wishing that the day went very well for them!! I know it was always such an exciting time to get ready in your new clothes and have your new school supplies, and then go to school to see what friends are in your class.  Oh so exciting! 

What I'm happy about today is that I am able to look back on this past summer and know that I was able to spend a few wonderful weekends with my sister and her family and enjoy precious time with my nieces and nephew.  On one of their visits, we went to the Houston Children's Museum, which I think they really loved!  It was a fun-filled day for sure.  Upon another visit back home, we went to the pool and beach.  I loved getting to see them swim, especially the little one that's only 2!  She picked up swimming so fast and turned into a little fish in the water.  Just precious!!  We also spent the 4th of July with them, which included fishing and fireworks.  I love them so much, and I'm so lucky that we created so many wonderful memories this summer! 

This was at the Children's Museum, in the Kidtropolis City, where they "had to get jobs", then they learned how to fill out deposit slips to deposit their paychecks, and then learned how to use a bank card to withdraw money.  Good lessons while playing!

His job was a security guard at the bank.

Her job was a forensic detective.

Climbing the Power Tower.

Then there was the little one, who was having a ball!  She was busy busy all day so enchanted by all of the activity that she wouldn't even hardly look up to take a picture. haha
She finally looked up for a second in this one, so I could get a shot of that sweet face!

Love them so much!!  Happy 1st Day of School!
