Pre-school-age 3

Oh, look at the big girl.  Mommy sprung for a new school dress for your big day.  Of course no one will actually see this dress on you for a few months.  It is, afterall, August.  In Georgia.  But, nevertheless, you will start school tomorrow, in your summer clothes, and begin your journey of education. 
Your teacher at the Richmond Hill United Methodist Church Pre-School is Miss Missy.  She seems lovely.  She told me at Open House that you will play, eat snacks, learn science, do crafts, dance and so much more.  Your friend's Michael and Lane Marie are in your class too.  To say you are excited about school is a real understatement.  Daddy will go into work late tomorrow so we can both escort you into your first day of school.
Let the lifelong adventure of learning begin!

Tybee Island, GA

We are blessed to live near several beaches.  Today we journeyed 45 minutes away from hom to Tybee Island with Miss Betty.  It's good to keep busy when Daddy is away at trainings.  I had a hard time dragging you away from the lifeguard.  You insisted on flirting with him while we waited!

Miss Betty was my next door neighbor last time we were stationed here.  I worked full-time, had no children and Daddy was deployed to Iraq for a year of our stay here.  Not to mention 1 and 2 month-long trainings.  I was fortunate to have such a good pal right next door.
  Now we get together on occasion and take you girls to McDonalds or the park while we catch up.
 My favorite part of the beach with you girls is photo opportunities.

 This goofy smile melts my heart.

 We did a little shopping too.  Laken loves being a "Mommy"

I wonder if you will love the beach when you grow up.  Just make sure you wear sunscreen!  Don't make the same mistakes I made!

My first mani!

Since the triplet 11-year-old girls moved in next door, you have loved getting your nails painted.  And they love obliging you.  So, when I had some Arbonne business to do today at the nail salon, I thought I'd let you indulge a little in a professional-grade mani.

You were SO happy to get this special treat!
You picked your color within seconds!  "Purple is my favorite color!"  I'm not's Mommy's too! 
No doubt you are now hooked on receiving this special service.  Afterall, princesses don't paint their own nails!
