First Day of School

Well today was Caty-lynne's first day of school and she was so excited. She got up and picked out her cloths and then had to do her makeup so she would glitter. Then she had me do her hair. Before we left she informed me that she needed her necklace on to finish the outfit. She look so cute. I can't believe that she is in preschool.
This is a picture of her when she got to school. The teacher had them color when they first got there. She did not stop grinning from the time we left the house and when we got there she still was smiling and giggling about starting school. She was a little upset that Nana left this morning and did not get to see her school or meet her teacher like she did for Bri. I told her Nana would come again and be able to do that for her too. She then said ok next week when I go to school we can call Nana and have her fly back here.

Here is Bri on his first day, he started on Monday. He was so excited that he got up at 5:45am wanting to know if it was time to go. Needless to say we were all ready for before 7 and his school starts at 8 and we live about 5 mins from his school.

Here he is in front of his classroom. He loved his first day but was a little upset because he did not get any homework and he wanted to see what it was like. I told him he had a whole life of homework ahead of him so don't wish it on to soon. So now it is just Lizzy and I hanging out and we are trying to figure out what to do with such a quiet house.

Pictures of The House

Libby this is for you, you have been asking for pictures for months. This first picture is of our bedroom, of course. I only have pictues of things that are new or different from the last house libby.

Well as you can see Brian decided to shave his head again, but this time he did not want to do it alone. So to my dismay Bri has a shaved head too. I am not a fan of a shaved head but I have to say Bri looked pretty cute! He loves looking like his dad, well at least his hair cut b/c just about everywhere we go we still get he looks just like his mom, he might have my looks but he acts just like his dad.

Then there is Caty-Lynne and for all those who know Caty-Lynne you know what a battle it is to even get a brush and bow in her hair. As you can see in this picture she has now decided so loves ponytails and pigtails. She looks even more adorable with her hair pulled up off of her face. One day last week she came to me and ask for a ponytail and i about fell over, then two days ago she came asking for the pigtails. This was so big I had to take a picture b/c I knew no one would believe this one. Her hair now matches her prissy attitude. In fact the other day when I did her hair she had to put on her lip gloss and then ask me to announce to her dad that the pretty girl in the whole world was coming down the stairs. So I did and she was walking down the stairs with a huge smile and then she tripped and fell down half of the stairs. Poor thing, she was ok but it made her so upset that her dad did not see her before the tears came.

Here we have miss on the go, Lizzy is all over the place now a days. She now has personality ozzing out of her ears. We thought for awhile she was going to be nothing like her drama queen sister but we were wrong. She is more drama than Caty-lynne ever thought about being at that age and that scares me.

And here is the last picture for today, Bri and Caty-lynne were outside on the tramp. and Caty-lynne came in screaming with this black eye. We ask what happened and she said Bri told her not to look at him and she did so he took the broom I left on the deck earlier and hit her in the eye with it. Needless to say Bri went to his room for the rest of the night. She was so pitiful looking I had to take a picture. When I took the picture she gave me this cute sad face. Well that is about the just of what has been going on at the Miller house. We are looking forward to next week b/c Bri starts school and Caty-lynne starts preschool. I will not know what to do with myself but I am pretty sure I will be ok. We are also looking forward to Lynne coming next week as well, so next week seems to be looking good for us. Until next time.

Pictures at the Pool

Cooling Off

Well it has been really hot here the last couple of days. It has been in the 100's with 90% humitity. So we have been going to the pool to keep cool. The kids have also enjoyed jumping on the tramp with me spraying them with a hose. Fun times here at the Miller House. Caty-lynne went of the diving board for the first time the other day and now she can not get enough of it. In fact the other day when Brian was with her she decided to hold her pee so long that when she got to the end of the diving board she could no longer hold it and she exploded right there in front of everyone watching her. Brian went up and splashed some water on the end but the guy behind her still seemed to be a little upset when he had to walk through Caty-lynne's pee. So now she can not go in the pool until after a bathroom visit. But Caty is doing so good with her swiming. She can swim all the way to the stairs after jumping off the diving board. Brian or I are always there just in case but still we are very impressed at how good she is doing with no lessons. Then there is Bri who is the swiming machine. When we get to the pool he leaves us and goes and swims the whole pool by himself. He is always on the lookout for a new friend to play with. He goes on the diving board and does front dives, cannon balls and twist in the air. Pretty good for a five year old. In fact they were having diving lessons one night and after Bri did this pretty amazing twist in the air this girl there for lessons who was probably about 12 said to her friend, did you see what he just did? That was really cool. It is a good thing we have this pool for something to do everyday. I have pictures of the kids on the diving board and slide but it is not letting me post them now so i will do it later. I also have a picture of Brian doing a 2 1/2 flip off the diving board as well that i will post. We also have a pretty amazing slide at the pool as well and lizzy now enjoys going on it with Brian or I. She always has a very disgruntly look on her face until the water splashes her in the face right at the end. Then out comes the giggles and smiles. Well that is about all that is going on her in Hell or at least it fells like that everytime we go outside.
