Fun Run Friday

This year our school did another Fun Run as a fundraiser and it was Preston's first time to participate instead of just being there to see the girls. He was pretty excited and definitely took it more seriously than the girls ever did! He sprinted all around, did some extra laps and then crashed and sat on my feet in the shade until time was up. Addie's grade came out the next round and she was surprisingly into it this year as well. Her teacher had given her a cute side braid and she rocked it! There were some hot sweaty kids by the end of the morning! I was taking pictures for yearbook but managed to take lots of Addie and Prest too. (and I was feeling very thankful by the end that I didn't have to stay for a third round! a definite perk of not having them all at one school this year)

New Activities, Primary Program and Lulu's Birthday

Addie's art class started back up, Preston is in a Lego class (that he LOVES...the next morning after he went the first time he was so excited to again and when I explained that it was only once a week he was crushed! he wants an everyday option),  we had some fun in between all the other places we had to be and then celebrated Lulu's birthday to cap off the middle of September.

I spotted Preston in the back right wearing an orange shirt when the school posted a pic from the Fun Run kick-off on facebook.

Preston died of embarrassment when I tried to take a picture of him relaxing in the bath.

Driving to my shoots downtown has gotten insane...no matter when I go I am stuck in crazy traffic.

Preston's competitiveness came out when he was determined to be the first in his class to read 100 books. He did it!

And then September 20th was primary program time! Nana and Grandad came to watch what was Ella's last one...crazy! Next fall she will be in young women!

Legos, Games and Grandparents' Day Lunch

The first half of the month was full of lots of creating by Addie (on the rainbow loom) and Preston (with legos), swimming for Ella, getting to see friends who had moved away, keeping up with our goal to make dinner at home and playing board games on Sunday evenings. Addie and Preston also were joined by Nana and Grandad for lunch at school on Friday, the 11th, for Grandparents' Day Lunch and were SOOO excited!
