So many of my pictures now are on my iPhone - here are some highlights of our September!
Piper loves to go in and TRY to wake up Jillian. Jillian takes after Daddy and me and will just pull the covers up and try to go back to bed.
Jillian and I started our first of many school lunches with our first grader!
Then started our "Mama and Beans" Days. After lunch with Sissy, we hit up the mall for some carousel time! And all time favorite for the Hanks girls.
We hit up local forestations on Saturday morning to take water and gatorade to the firefighters with our friends, the Harveys.
And just because it is back-to-school doesn't mean you can't still swim when you live in Texas!
Meredith used some birthday money to buy this sweet pillow that separates for she and Jillian
Back to school means homework. And there is more in first grade, so Meredith is starting a good routine and Jillian is more than happy to play along, practicing writing her name and numbers.
A fun picture of me and the girls at worship while holding hands with Jillian's buddy, Austin.
Just love this sweet sleepy face!
This was our first day of BSF - we are studying Matthew this year and we are both excited about our friends and learning more about the Bible!
Jillian also started gymnastics this month! Here's a picture of her attempt at an (assisted) handstand!
Meredith decided to take up running with me - here was our first training run! (Don't we look tough???)
This was a picture I posted on Instagram. Here was the caption to explain why I posted it: "I was second guessing the decision to bring baby carriages on our walk tonight because it was taking SOOOO long. That was until we ran into a group of super dressed up 6th graders posting for pre-Cotillion pics. A reminder that their days of playing with babies are too soon going to be replaced by fancy dresses, make up, and dances - especially as I watched all the picture-taking mamas get sentimental at the sight of the girls and their dolls."
Meredith's first attempt at the Rainbow Loom Papa gave her for her birthday.
Oh, Piper. Yes, I am impressed by your persistence to get this 3.5 foot branch through the dog door that is less than 1 foot wide. Even so, it can not stay in the house.
A little impromptu cousin night at the Rangers!
