Let's get this Started

Well, for those of us on Facebook, we know it it back to school time. I must say, I find it fun to see all those smiling faces( on kids and parents faces) when the school starts back. So here goes.

First Cooper started on August 18. He is in 2nd grade and has Ms Lehmen.
We had to wear a Minecraft shirt on the first day - and Crocs (no matter how much Momma hates them)
Lauren a little bummed that she was not going, but still there to support Coop
With Mom (who is also very happy : ) )
Lauren with her new boots - Who says you should not wear suede in Aug

Now for Lauren's first day
Do you think these too look alike ? Just a little 
Now with Mom - not as much resemblance
One more notable change, is Cooper started wearing glasses. I think he looks great. And has on another Minecraft shirt.....

Happy Birthday to Cooper

My little boy is not really a little boy anymore. Cooper turned 8 years old on August 1st. He is such a great kid, and I am so proud to be his mom!
   This year, we kept is pretty low key, but we were able to go to Casa Bonita, which we had never been to (I have been to the one in Tulsa, but it was years ago). We meet Sarah and the girls, and the kids really seemed to enjoy it. The food was about what we expected, but seeing a cliff diver, and going into Black Barts cave (about 5 times), made it worth it.
 On Cooper's birthday, we took he and one of his friend , Braden, to Dave and Busters. They ran from one game to the next with all the glee that only an 8 year old boy can.
