It's That Time Again!

We've had an amazingly busy summer!
It's crazy to think that we go back to school tomorrow.  I've been busy getting my classroom ready and putting together a 175 page poem book of Grandma Kaiser's poems.  We've gone to the zoo and spent an amazing week in Minnesota on Gull Lake.  We were very fortunate to be able to spend time with both Old Papa Kelly and Great Gramma P.  I spent a few days at a conference in St. Louis for work, and Emma and I spent a week at Vacation Bible School in Van Horne.  We had family reunions on both the Morrow and Kaiser side and celebrated Addalynne's 1st birthday with fireworks.  Kaiser and Emma both had swimming lessons, and we spent some time at Grammy and Poppy's farm.  Kaiser has had his share of tractors and his vocabulary is developing by leaps and bounds daily.   We've spent more time outside playing on our play yard and swimming this summer than ever before, because Nana and Papa put in an amazing pool at their farm.  School starts tomorrow, and I will officially have a kindergartner. I'm sure Kaiser will miss Big Sis at Melissa's every day, but they'll make up lost time in the evenings :)

Here's to another great school year!
Shine on!
