Hunter and the Dentist

Again since Hunter turned 3 he had to have another checkup.....this time with the dentist.  I wasn't sure how he would do so I took Nana for backup.  Much to our surprise he did very well.  Whew!!!

 He even got to do his own suctioning.
 The best part of course.....a goodie bag.
 And his new tooth brush
 Photo op with the Dr....Hunter looks like he has been in the anesthesia :)
 Checking it all out!

1st Day of 1st Grade

Thursday was Reanna's first day of first grade.  Each year I just keep saying I can't believe how big she is getting and how fast time goes.  I am sure I will say that forever :)

Book Bag packed and ready to go.
 Before bedtime we read....The Night Before First Grade. I love this little series.  I have the Kindergarten one and was able to find preschool and second grade for next year. 

 All dressed and ready to go.  Look at my little lady. 
 Her bag is bigger than she is :)
 A pic with brother and of course our newest members of our family Buzz Lightyear and Woody :)

 Outside her classroom.  She was a little shy and nervous but was fine once she was in.
 Ready to Learn......

End of Summer Movie Night

Hunter and Reanna having a movie night before she had to start her school bedtime routine.  Nana had bought the kids the Lorax movie......and since this night I have seen/heard it quite a few times :)

Makin' Vases

Last weekend Reanna and I went to one of the local assisted living homes for a church service project.  The kids and one of the residents each painted a vase.  The vase will be fired and returned to us to put flowers in and take back up to our new friend.  I was really proud of Reanna, she was so patient and kind.
 Trying to decide what to paint on it :)
 Finished Product

Eye Exam

Since school is starting it is time to have all our checkups.  One of those on the list.....Eye exam.   Good news is she doesn't need glasses.  A little farsighted but nothing that needs treated.  Yipee!!
 Little brother intently watching :)

 Soon it was his turn.  He crawled up in the chair like a big boy......For his exam this time, we just got him comfortable with the Dr., sat in the chair and he told her what some of the pictures were.  He did very well.  He will go back in 6-8 months to try a full exam.  A little bit at a time!!

All Done....I would have to say this time was a success, no glasses and both exams completed.

Hunter Man

Hunter did not have any camps or play any sports this summer....But he did keep busy.   He did learn how to roller blade thanks to sissy. And did a lot of swimming in nana and papa's pool where he learned how to doggy paddle, blow bubbles, put his head under and attemped to "swim" (it was a little hard for his little arms to make a circle in the water with his big frog floaty on) :) Can't believe summer is almost over.

 "Look Mom I can multitask"

 The next several pictures were taken when papa and the kids when out around 9:30 for a "midnight" swim.

 His favorite.....jumping off of papa's back.

 Let's try some snorkeling....
