We did a lot of things this week but Mommy didn’t take pictures of most of the things. However, she is taking a photography class, so you get to see some of her practice shots. If you want to see the other 400 or so just let her know and she will send you the link 🙂 Of course, we had Granny here with us the first part of the week and were sad to see her go. We are looking forward to her coming back for Kitt and Garet’s birthday in a little less than a month. The first few pictures are of us at school. A tractor trailer came to Kitt and Garet’ school for a little visit so we had fun sitting in it. Ryan has lots of fun exploring her classroom, too. Daddy took all three of us to the park on Saturday which was lots of fun and also took Kitt and Garet to his office after soccer practice on Sunday. They love drawing and playing at his office. Everything else was pretty normal. We got to see Aunt Kristen some although she was out of town this weekend. Kitt and Garet are still playing soccer, doing gymnastics and especially loving ballet! Ryan really enjoys her music class, too. We hope you all have a wonderful week and enjoy the cooler weather like we are!
Wow, girls, you were mighty busy after Granny left. Having the tractor trailer come to your school appears to be a winner! How exciting for you to sit behind that big steering wheel. Again, your mom has been her creative self by making you capes. I wonder what she used to make them!!!! I’m glad the t-ball stand Granny bought is still being used. Look out, though, as Ryan will want to try it. She wants to do everything her big sisters do. As always, you girls look just beautiful, and Granny loves you immensely. I’m counting down the days until I’m back up there for your 4th birthday. Love, kisses and prayers going your way. Granny
We had so many new adventures this week and are excited to share them with you! The week was pretty typical with our normal activities. Kitt and Garet did resume gymnastics and Ms. Tawana was so happy to see them and couldn’t believe how much Ryan had grown. Then the weekend came! On Friday night we went with Aunt Kristen and Uncle Mark to go the Atlanta BBQ Festival. We had good food and lots of fun! Then Saturday came. We had planned on making a quick trip downtown to meet Doc McStuffins. We all went down to the park where the event was being held only to find out there was about a 5 hour wait to meet Doc!!!! No worries though–we are patient little girls! We had plenty of things to do to stay occupied including going to the children’s museum, having lunch and then going to see the Elmo Live show. Daddy took Ryan home to get a nap while Kitt and Garet stayed with Mommy, Aunt Kristen and Uncle Mark for the show. After the show it was our time to meet Doc. We waited so very patiently in the long line only to find out Doc had somewhere else to be. We handled it very well and still enjoyed examining our toys and visiting the Doc Mobile. On Sunday, Kitt and Garet had their very first soccer practice and they were great! We can’t wait to tell you more about soccer as the season goes on. Finally, there is also a picture from school–Garet is marking herself “present” using the smart board. As for Ryan, she is still working on taking steps–any day now, I tell you–any day!
I’m sorry girls that you were unable to meet Doc McStuffin, but you seem to have made the most of all the other activities. Of course, you both look adorable in your Minnie Mouse and Doc McStuffin outfits. I am surprised your mommy let you wear them since they are your Halloween costumes. Kitt, I think maybe you were spitting out the barbeque instead of eating it! You look like your are enjoying practicing soccer. Did your mom tell you she played one season on a soccer team with all boys? I’m glad to see more girls are getting involved in soccer. Granny will be there day after tomorrow so I am anxious to go with you to all your fun activities. No doubt, we will be visiting Mr. Rob’s for cheese dip and chips and also to the nearby market for ice cream cones. Granny did promise to take you to Publix to pick out your favorite ice cream. And, Garet, since there is no Krispy Kreme in Atlanta, do you think we could go to Dunkin Donuts for you to select a doughnut. Ryan, I hope you will begin walking while I’m there! We’ll keep practicing!!!! I’m all packed so I’ll see you soon. Sending you lots of love, kisses and prayers. Granny
We had a great week with so many exciting things happening! On Monday, there was no school, so we all went with Mommy, Aunt Kristen and Uncle Mark to the indoor play place. Kitt and Garet had a fun time making play-doh with Mommy for their class. It smells like apples!!! All three of us went to a birthday party on Saturday for a friend, Will, from our old school. You know how much we love a bounce house. Will’s sister Hannah had fun playing with Ryan (and giving her a sip of water)! Kitt and Garet had a fun water day at school on Friday so Mommy and Ryan went up to help. Friday was also their first ballet class! Don’t they look like perfect ballerinas? On Friday night, we all went (including Aunt Kristen) to Coralwood’s Homecoming–it was a fun night with pizza, games and a parade. Finally, on Saturday Aunt Kristen and Mommy took Kitt and Garet to a party at Young Chef’s Academy–it was an open house with lots of fun things to try, make and do. We had so much fun getting to be chefs for the day! Oh and Ryan took a step!!! She let go and took one step. She didn’t fall which is good so hopefully this week she will take another couple of steps. Tonight we had our friends from church, Samuel and Benjamin (and their Mommy and Daddy) over for dinner which was great! We had so much fun this week and look forward to new things starting tomorrow!
Whew, Granny and Poppy are exhausted just reading about your week and seeing all the fun things you did. You girls never have a dull week. We are excited about Ryan taking a step. By the time Granny gets there next week, she will probably have to chase her around the house. How adorable, Ryan, you look with a bow in your hair. As always, Kitt and Garet, you also look adorable – one picture you have on chef hats and another you have on ballet outfits. We knew this Friday would be ballet class so we’re happy you included those pictures. Maybe you can teach your mommy and Aunt Kristen some ballet moves!
Hello you 3 adorable and smart little girls! Poppy enjoyed reading all about your last weeks activities and seeing all of your photos. Once again it appears that you had a busy but fun filled week at both school and play. I really liked the idea of a Coralwood homecoming. Was that a parade I even saw going down the school corridor? I’ll bet you’re having fun at ballet class too. Kitt, I hope that’s not too tiring for you! Rumor has it that there may be soccer in your futures. If that’s true I’ll be anxious to hear how you all enjoyed playing soccer. Make sure Mommy takes lots of pictures too. Ryan, how’s the walking coming? You look like you’re getting close to going off on your own. I’ll bet if Garet walks you around a little more, you’ll be off and running before you know it. That’s all for now, so take care and have another great week. Love you lots!!! …Poppy
