Remember the days when I updated the blog every day? Clearly those days are looong gone! Which excuses shall I give this time? Nah, forget it! Perhaps one of my New Year's resolutions should be to commit to keeping up the blog better in 2017. Wish me luck!

Where do I start? How about the first day of school? Kinley and I started school together this year. She is in a half-day Pre-K program four days a week. She even goes to school on the bus all by herself! She seems to like it! Her teachers report that she enjoys circle time, singing, and playing with a few favorite toys.
My ocean creatures!
Devyn was very indecisive about Halloween this year. She loved looking at costumes when we went shopping, but when I'd ask her which one she wanted to wear she'd say, "No, I'm fine." I finally persuaded her to pick Nemo and Dory for her and Kinley. Ellison was a lobster and Brylee was a fish. Devyn was the only one who enjoyed trick-or-treating. The little girls just wanted to run around, so they cried and whined the whole time they were in the stroller. Kinley wasn't much of a fan either. Luckily, Devyn collected enough candy for everyone!
Pumpkin Patch fun with Grandpa and Grandma
Devyn started going to "school" at the beginning of November as well! We felt it was important for her to spend time around other kids her age. I am so happy we did! Her vocabulary has improved tremendously since she started, and she loves school! Her school is technically a daycare, but they include "school time" every day.
Ready for her first day of school with her Dory lunchbox.
(Devyn does NOT like getting her photo taken for some reason.)
Brylee and Ellie finally get a turn!
Devyn started the independent lessons (hence no photo of her). She wasn't too sure about leaving Mom and Dad and had a few meltdowns resulting in missed lessons, but she warmed up a little toward the end. Hopefully next time her lessons will be more productive.
Kinley loves the water!
And because I realized I never shared the updated NICU bath tub photos......
