Meet the Teacher and First Day of OCT

 I can't believe that Ty is in first grade and Kinley is in 4th! 
 Time is flying. 

Ty is just beyond excited about having Ms. Kimberly Mrs. McNamara as his teacher this year. 
This is his second time around to have her because she taught him in the 4s at Compass. It took him a little while to switch what from first to last name :)
We LOVE her so much. 
She is a precious friend and thankfully one who really knows and loves Ty despite his sometimes challenging school behavior.
 She is really a special teacher that looks at the heart and challenges not just academically but also socially and emotionally and spiritually also. 
We are beyond thankful!

 Kinley has Ms. Rutter and she has been nothing but incredible also. She is a fabulous teacher and we are so excited to see all that Kinley learns and grows this year!

Fun first morning set up and each kid got a new devotional for the school year. I can not say enough about both of these devotionals. 
 My kids LOVE them and I highly recommend both.

More August - Golden Anniversary, Bass Hall x2, fun summer days

Had the BEST time with the Dream Team planning a surprise Golden Anniversary party (14th year on Aug 14th) for Kristen & Jeff. 
 Also, our bridesmaid dresses for her wedding were gold so we busted those out to wear for the night. It was so much fun planning and executing such a fun theme with all Kristen's sweet friends. 
She may or may not have actually been surprised but she loved every second!

Francesca is married!

So, so excited to celebrate the new Mr & Mrs Barerra.
 We loved getting to help host a bridal shower for Francesca back in May at Ali's house. 
 It was an intimate bridal tea with only girls and Kinley got to be a big girl and come too.
 It was such a beautiful day celebrating a beautiful girl.

The August wedding was just beautiful and such a fun time celebrating with lots and lots of the Lamke side of Cheryl's family. Love all the time we get to spend with these precious aunts, uncles and cousins.
