another tooth gone...

Malachi lost his 3rd tooth on Wednesday. He's been wiggling this middle top left tooth for awhile and it finally came out. He was excited the tooth fairy came with a dollar coin. His other middle top right tooth is loose so we'll see how long it takes to get it out.

first day of preschool...

Makaelyn started preschool today. She was super excited and wanted a braid in her hair for her first day! Can't wait to hear how she liked her teacher and how her first day went!

Malachi is in 3rd grade! He's enjoying his year so far. His teacher, Ms. Riojas, is very nice and he seems to be excited to be in school! He has quite a bit more homework this year but it's good to keep him busy! We're excited for him and his 3rd grade year!

3rd grade...

Malachi is now officially a 3rd grader. He started on August 16, 2010. He is excited to be back in school. He kept asking when he got to go back to school so he wouldn't be so bored. We'll see how long that last until he doesn't want to go to school.

dance recital...

Makaelyn had her first dance recital this weekend. She performed Friday and Saturday nights. She really enjoyed dance but we are going to move on the other things (maybe soccer or gymnastics). Here are the before and after pictures. She loved getting her hair done and being able to wear makeup.
