hello? is anyone out there . . .

i'm still here and i didn't mean to disappear! life with 4 kiddos can be quite overwhelming {in a good way of course!} sometimes and blogging is 1 of the things that tends to get pushed to the back burner!

but my 1 loyal reader {hi mom!} has reminded me a few times that i need to update my blog . . . and that's what i'm going to do. i tell my own kiddos that they need to listen to their mom . . . so it is only appropriate that i must do the same thing!

it's quite obvious that i have a lot of catching up to do {thinking the name of the blog should be "always catching up"} since the last posts were about the end of the school year and now we are already almost at the end of the 1st quarter of a new school year! seriously . . . where does the time go?

i have lots of things going thru my head right now . . . we are at the finishing stages of the house we have been remodeling{remodel updates here, here, and here} . . . i have a new serger that i need to figure out how to use . . . i have very high hopes of getting tutti fruity designs going again . . . and i have dreams of learning my camera and photoshop better so i can start taking pictures for more than just fun!

stay tuned for lots of catch-up posts!

we went on down to the audubon zoo . . .

water day . . .

the last day of kindergarten for the little miss was such a blast!

the spent the entire morning on the play yard with their bathing suits on playing in water!

miss' first year of real school went by way too fast. her first day of school seems like it was just yesterday!

we seriously couldn't have lucked out anymore with the friends she has made . . . with her teachers . . . with the parent friends we have made . . . with everything really pertaining to her school.

this is the lady responsible for helping the 24 little kindergartens start their adventure in becoming bilingual! maitresse sophie is little miss' native French teacher. she is top notch!

the teacher:student ratio in miss' class was incredible! little miss was so fortunate to have 3 wonderful teachers this year!

little miss loved her teachers . . . and all of her new school friends!
i'm in complete disbelief that little miss is about to start 1st grade . . . and that my little shrimp is about to start kindergarten!

goin' ridin' on the freeway . . .

field day . . .

time to do some serious catching up around here!

summer break with 4 little people hanging around 24/7 doesn't leave much time for blogging . . . but i need to get caught up so i don't forget about all the fun we've had the past few months. and unfortunately 'back to school' is right around the corner and i still have not blogged about the end of school!

so here is the first of many catch up posts . . . be prepared for lots of pics!

the end of school for little miss . . . meant lots of fun! field day was so fun for all the little kindergarten people . . . and equally as fun for me to watch little miss with all of her great new friends she made during her first year at big kid school!
