First Day of School 2014

 Our school year started off with a BANG!

This one missed the bus...and Daddy took our car seats to work with him....oh, and we have TWO kiddos in schools that are on opposite sides of town.  Good Stuff!

 Good thing we got up extra early and had plenty of time for pictures!
 Sam is SO excited for 1st Grade...NEW TEACHER, NEW BIG BUS, NEW SHOES!

 .....and CASHTON GOES TO SCHOOL TOO!!!!!
 Wanna see his number!?!?!
 He even got a BRAND NEW, HOMEMADE ALLIGATOR SHIRT for the FIRST DAY!
 AND NEW SCHOOL SHOES TO BOOT!!!!
 all kidding aside, we had a very unexpected morning....running here and there and everywhere, late to one school, but that just meant Sam got to help me drop off Cash....you know, to help him with the transition....
PUH-LEASE!  This guy barely even cared if I walked him in the building!  Biggest concern:  making sure his SpiderMan Gym Shoes were in the cubby that he left them in at Open House.  I had to chase him down to get a hug. 

GUESS HE WAS READY!

BLESSINGS TO ALL ON ANOTHER YEAR OF LEARNING!

Another year older for this Sweet n' Sassy Girl.

This past year, you have grown before our eyes....in so, so many ways.

Perhaps a little less noticeable on the growth chart...
You are still the most petite of 7 year olds, but your heart is larger than I think I could even begin to describe.  If you have an emotion inside of you, it is plainly laid out for all the world to see.   Your flair for dramatics surprise and exhaust us everyday.

You LOVE with everything.  You CRY with everything.  For a little thing, YOU LIVE BIG!

Still so sweet...Dad & I can always count on you for an impromptu hug, kiss, & "I Love You"   Your gentleness with Cashton & Georgia is sporadic recently, but there is never a moment you are not willing to give to your baby brother, Colton.  From being a diaper gopher to serenading him for mommy when she just needs a few minutes, you are an incredible helper!

Over the past year, you have gone from barely writing your name to spelling out all sorts of things!  You love learning!  It brings us so much joy to see the look of accomplishment in your eyes! 

You will do BIG THINGS in this life....

You already have. 

We love you SO Very Much, Samantha Brynn!
