August 2016

August started off with me going back to work… only this year, I've started in a new county, at a new school, in a new grade (3rd instead of 2nd). 

Not only did I move jobs, but we sold our house and are renting now, so the kids also started at new schools. It was kind of a lot at one time, but we managed.

This dude got to spend a lot of time with Daddy before he started school.

 My new classroom.

Me and my bestie, Amanda, started in the same county but at different schools after working side by side for 6 years!

 New co-workers

Caycen spending more time with his Deddy!

We got to see some animals and some cool jobs outside of Publix.

GJ takes the funniest pictures!

My babies started school. GJ is in Preschool 3 year old class and Caycen started Kindergarten! AHHH!!!

Caycen with his teacher on the first day of school

After a long first day, our administrators gave everyone watermelon at the front of the school and all of the teacher kids got to eat too!

Spending some time on the weekend at the mall.

What I would do all day every day if I had the choice!!!!

Caycen hurt his neck on a blow up water slide at his friend's birthday party. It was a sad week!!!

GJ has the cutest crafts at church!

Went to our first Wildcat Football game!

Gracie June started gymnastics and loves it!!!!

Caycen started his soccer season and begs to go to practice EVERY DAY!!!

So we go and practice all the time :)

And Gracie June practices her cheerleading stunts :)

August was an exhausting but fun month for the Darleys! We can't wait to start getting into a normal routine.

Caycen's 5th Birthday and Gracie June's 3rd Birthday

This year we decided to do the kids' birthday parties together. They LOVED the idea! They each invited their own friends, which a few of them they share anyways, and it worked out great. We did a Pirates and Mermaids theme. Here's how it went:

Here's the invitation that I made for their party. Gracie June loved that the mermaid had red hair like her haha!

I made the cupcake stand out of a couple of cardboard boxes, a little craft paper, and some paint :)

I made these cute gift bags for our party guests.

 And I put together a quick little banner for the table.

Some of these pictures are not that great of quality because I forgot my good camera at home. But we had ourselves a little mermaid!

Here we are singing happy birthday to my sweet peas:

My babies truly had a blast for their birthday! I love that they have summer birthdays, because we get to celebrate ALL SUMMER LONG!!! Love these kids to pieces.
