That's our future soccer star before his first practice. He was really excited to go but once he got there he decided he didn't want to do it. He had been sick the day before so Jay wasn't sure if that's why he didn't want to participate or not. Today was his second practice and I took him. He was nervous when we got there but he started getting more into it about half way through practice.

These are pictures from a few days of school. I took some of them and others are from Mrs. Christy Wood, their teacher.
The day begins by walking up to the classroom. They put their lunchboxes on the card, put their folders in the cubbie, and backpacks go into their locker.
After circle time, they are presented various lessons. Brooks and Brynn also do various "works" that are designed to teach them daily practical life responsibilities.
There is also time to read books. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See has been this weeks book. They also learned the song Bubblegum, Ohewy Chewy. I have been able to eat lunch with the class a few times.
They even have responsibilities such as being the door holder or line caboose ( even though Brynn considers herself the line leader!!!)
Brooks and Brynn do a lot of work at school but there is also plenty of time for playing and having a matching band parade.
Being a three year old in school is a lot of work and fun. Daddy and Mommy couldn't be prouder of them!

Today we have spent most of the day shopping. Shopping for groceries, more school supplies, soccer stuff, and shoes. B&B picked out new, bigger lunch boxes. Brooks wanted Spider-Man and Brynn wanted Doc McStuffins. They also got to pick new sheets to take to school to use with their mats at naptime. Brynn picked pink polka dot and Brooks picked one that had all different kinds of balls.
Brynn also needed new tennis shoes for school. We went to Rack Room Shoes and let her shop! We were there awhile. Here's the shoes she picked.

Misty, LJ, and Keelin came over this afternoon. They wanted to see our new house and we were going to take the kids to the splash pad at Charlie Daniels Park. After they got here we were afraid it might rain, so we decided to play in the backyard instead.
And it did rain. Which resulted in a beautiful rainbow.
So here's how the first week of school was supposed to start for B&B:
Wednesday - half day
Thursday - no school
Friday - half day
Wednesday went great. Thursday morning Brooks was being very lazy and saying he didn't feel well. After one day of school he was down for the count with a fever.
I got this text from their teacher on Friday from Mrs. Wood: We have had a great two days. Ask your children to retell the story Brown Bear Brown Bear. Reminder we are napping on Monday.
Today, I took Brooks to the soccer complex to meet his coach. He is playing for Central Tennessee Soccer here in Mt. Juliet.
He has two coaches. Coach Linda and her grandson, Coach Jason.
Here's to a great, fun upcoming season of soccer!
We were pretty excited that our new yard had raised garden beds. We're even more excited now that we are successfully growing some veggies!
