I can not believe that Talia is now a Junior. Only one more year left till she graduates and heads off to college. She is taking two AP classes, two honors classes and french 3 this year. It will be a challenge, but I know she will do great.
For everyone but Talia, today was the first day of school. Falyn was so excited to be going to kindergarten. She had a great time and just loves her new teacher. Jared and Riley are in 3rd grade and have the same teacher they had in kindergarten. They both think this will be a great year. Aidan started 5th grade and has a teacher Kayli had for both 4th and 5th grade. She is just wonderful and I know Aidan will do great with her as his teacher this year. Kayli is in 8th grade, which is will be the last year for her at this school. She is excited about all the fun things she gets do do this year as an 8th grader, especially the 8th grade sweatshirts and DC trip.
All ready for her first day of Kindergarten.
I am going to try to remember to do a shot like this each year for Falyn.

Kayli had her 14th birthday party today. She had a swim party with a luau theme. Everyone had a great time.
We celebrated Jared and Riley’s 9th birthday today with a pool party.
Since my parents are leaving tomorrow, I took some time out today to take portraits of them with the kids.
Today we took my parents to the beach. They enjoyed watching all the kids have fun playing in the sand and the ocean.
Today we had our annual Tye-Dye day. As always, the kids had a great time. This year my parents were in town and joined in the fun. It was also my mother’s birthday, so we had a little party as well.
Kayli and Talia designed their own Hogwarts crest shirts.
Falyn did a heart design.
