Back to School

Jackson is enjoying second grade in Mrs. Crowell's class.

And Luke is liking his new preschool. His teacher for art is Miss Annie and for drama he has Mr. Jefferson. After his first day we walked to the splash pad for some fun.

Field trip to Reed Park

In my next life I might be a first grade teacher. I just love spending time with these kids. Who knew we could have so much fun and get this dirty in one day at the park. We caught minnows, tadpoles, bugs, and worms. We went on a nature scavenger hunt. We had a picnic and played on the playground. It so reminded me of being a kid and doing fun stuff like this near the end of the school year. A perfect day!

Time Out!

This day is KILLING me. So let me just take a moment to reflect on a happier time and place.

Ahhh...that's better.

In case you missed it on Facebook...'s finally done.

What has Luke been up to?

Short answer: making us smile any way he can. Here are some recent Lukey pics that show off what he's been up to and his sweet, funny personality. I don't know what we'd do without him...

Hiking on New Year's Day.

Snow day and our tiny snowman.

Cracking Jackson up right before these crazy boys decided to jump in the February.

Shooting the BB Gun.

Disney World.

The beach.

With Megan at the beach.

Donuts for Dads at school.

Easter. I would blame it on the candy, but he's always like this.

Mother's Day Tea at school.

With his best friend Brielle.

And the hair is coming off this afternoon!

Thanksgiving Feast

Mammal Day

Book report about King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table


Grandparent's Day

What a great year Jackson has had at school! We have loved Mrs. Boyd so very much and will be sad to see this year end. We still have field day, achievement tests, a field trip, three special chapels, and two special events left during the month of May, however, so we will probably be ready for a break soon.

From the Archives - The Fosters

Oh how we love our Foster family. A typical trip north on I-35 usually involves the spectating of some sort of amateur sport. This particular weekend it was volleyball and soccer.

Every trip includes a smattering of eating, sitting, visiting, laughing, playing, climbing, and hanging out at one of the Sachse or Rockwall family compounds.

These festivities are usually followed by church-going and then lunch-eating wherein the eating, sitting, visiting, laughing, playing, climbing, and hanging out continue.

Even the youngest member of the tribe participates in the make-em-laugh-at-all-cost-even-if-you-are-embarrassing-yourself-in-public family weekend ritual.

Finally the obligatory staring-into-the-sun-group-photo of the ever-growing children either ends with wailing and gnashing of teeth or in this case a nice photo of the children.

And we conclude with lotso hugs and begging of parents to plan future trips or possibly that we can all move into houses next door to each other.

Oh how we love our Foster family.
