Last...day of Mom's visit was Sunday.So we decided to head down to Jax alittle early and grab lunch, before dropping Grandma off at the Airport!
[they're silly]Awww...time for goodbye's!
We almost made it out of there tear-free...but only 'almost'.
They went in for goodbye hug #2 and Kai lost it!
So we've had 2 special visitors recently, I'm basking in the Cali Love and just soakin' it all up...it's really been wonderful and a huge help in getting through the last couple months of deployment, which always seem to drag on! The kids loved having G-ma around and I was sure missin' my Mama.
But, with the summer vacay coming to a close...it was time to say goodbye to G-ma and buckle down for the...
First...day of school
The Arts program has moved...this is the cool new d'town location! SCAD came in and did an Extreme Home Makeover on the joint...art & sculptures everywhere.
Off to Ry's school, where he is returning as a BIG 1st grader! This year the school is military kids only, as they are relocating it on post next year. In fact, they are busy building it [across from our housing area] as we speak...This is the main reason we kept Ryan here and didn't have him 'grandfathered' into the program at Kai's school. We love our DOD schools! :]
No more kiddie cubbies w/names...it's a 'big kid' class! SO excited to be there! Lambie actually tried to claim a chair and stay in Ry's class [sorry kiddo, next year...], but was easily persuaded to leave w/the promise of Starbucks.
