A Great Night for a Baseball Game!

An Indians game was on our to-do list for the summer.  I actually won free tickets through a contest on facebook several weeks ago.  We just hadn't had a chance to go yet.  It was kind of a last minute trip though because we decided to go on Friday afternoon and the game was that night.  The girls were trying to get into the game, but mostly just enjoyed eating all the yummy food.

 Can't go to a game without getting cotton candy!

 Friday nights they put on a fireworks show after the game.  They were pretty spectacular. 

 The girls really got a kick out of this mist machine.

First day of school 2013

School started today, August 1.  The school has gone to a balanced calendar where they will get two weeks off in the fall and two weeks off in the spring.  They had eight weeks of summer break and they were excited to go back to see all their friends. 

Charlotte has a male teacher, Mr Crandall.  He taught 1st grade last year so she is already familiar with him.  Brooke has a young teacher for homeroom and reading.  This is her first full year teaching.  Her name is Miss Coleman.  Her math teacher is Mr. Provence. 

They both go to lunch very late-12:40 ish.  That will be a big change especially for Charlotte who went to lunch at 10:45 last year.  Hopefully they will be able to have a snack in the morning to tide them over.  We will try to get them to eat a big breakfast every day too...which might be hard some days when you just don't want to get out of bed....

I couldn't really get them to take a serious picture.  This is about as good as it gets.  Do you think Charlotte likes pink much?

Before school starts

We had to get in a few fun things before school started.  Unfortunately, Nathan and I got sick so we didn't end up doing a whole lot.  We did get a quick trip to Conner Prairie in with aunts and cousins.  The balloon was not flying but they were letting people to get in and walk around while it was on the ground. 

We also went to see Smurfs 2 the day it came out in theaters.  The kids really liked it. 

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
