Audrey reading...

I'm trying to get into a little routine of going over the girls schoolwork (forms, notes, etc.) right when they get home from school (so I don't have time to slack off). Audrey and Abby made a little booklet they read to me from today. Audrey's reading was just so adorable, I couldn't help but get the video camera to show you all. Sometimes it brings tears to my eyes to think of how far she (and Abby) has come. (Plus, the video will give me something to look at when Mrs. Blaylock tells me she's been in time-out...again...)

First Day of Kindergarten!

Well, the twins started Kindergarten today! Backpack clad and lunchbox laden, Audrey & Abby headed of to school. They are in Mrs. Brenda Blaylock's Zebra Class at Parkers Chapel Elementary School. Abby said she had a great day today, but forgot to eat her snack at recess. (I'm sure she was too busy playing, if they were outside.) Audrey likes her class (especially all the zebra paraphernalia), but has a hard time transitioning to a new routine in a new school. To tell you the truth, I'm having a hard time transitioning too! Here are some pics from this morning...

First Day of Pre-K!

Today was Adrienne's first day of school! She's so big! She's in Mrs. Kristi Gunter's K4 class at West Side Christian School. She was excited this morning as she walked in and excited this afternoon when we picked her up. To put it in her words: "I just want to go to school all the time!" Here are the pictures from today (she requested the shot with Skecher!).
P.S.--This was also Audrey & Abby's last day of therapy at Hope Landing, where they have "Pool Day" on Thursdays, hence the picture with the twins in their swim suits & cover-ups.

VBS--Outrigger Island FUN!

We just finished our church's Vacation Bible School, "Outrigger Island." Clay led the music & worship rallies, I helped with 3's-Pre K's (with my friends Jenna & Tina, pictured with Adrienne), and the girls had a BLAST all week. Here are some pictures from the week at VBS. Aloha!

The Latest Craziness (Our New Puppy)

Well, since my last post, the Owens family has, once again, found itself hosting chaos. We (me & the girls) travelled (once again) to Georgia so I could be there when my mom had total knee replacement surgery. The girls got to spend some time with Clay's side of our family and even went to Chuck E. Cheese's! They also spent time with my side of the family as we spent the night with my sis, Beth, & her new husband, Jason (wedding pics to follow, hopefully!), and got to visit with Dunka while Nonni was resting in her room.

Today we made good on a promise to the girls to get them a puppy. She is a cute, 3 month old mutt that has fast become the 7th member of our clan! We haven't named her yet; we're still looking for the perfect name for her. Feel free to drop suggestions!

Blessed with so much!
