I decided to get a substantial haircut. I have had very long hair for a very long time. I usually just get a trim twice a year, but I decided to change it up a bit. I know it is still "long" but it feels so much shorter to me. Now Ryan has the longest hair in the family! She has always wanted to hold that title!
I got to have lunch with Emma and she requested that I bring her pho. We had a fun time eating together and I dropped off pho for Ryan too. She prefers not to see us because it makes her sad, so I left hers on her lunch table before she got to the cafeteria. Proud of both of my girls for making it through the first week, especially coming off a long vacation. Emma decided she didn't want to go on Thursday, but Mamaw took her to the principal, Mrs. Schweig, to ask if she had to go and when she told her she did, she went on to class.

The even years......
2 kids in elementary! I can't believe it. Emma was so ready and so excited. The only concern she had was that someone might eat a banana near her. She is still so repulsed by bananas. Ryan was excited for second grade and had high hopes for a better teacher.
|Ready for second grade!|
|Ready to own kindergarten!|
|Grandpa brought donuts and words of wisdom!|
|Polly is all about Mamaw right now.|
|The even years.|
So happy they will have each other at school.
|Emma plans to become an engineer.|
|Ryan plans to be an artist and live in Paris.|
|Proud of our girls.|
|Emma and Eleanor outside Hill.|
|Ryan has Mrs. Barzyk and she got to choose her desk.|
She chose to sit by Finn. :-)
|Emma has Mrs. Hoelscher who we know and LOVE!|

What a trip we had! 5 families all together in Destin! 10 adults and 11 kids. Non stop action, for sure. We enjoyed another fun week in Destin, Florida with some of our closest friends to wrap up summer 2016. We had a beautiful 8 bedroom house on the beach and enjoyed a ton of beach volleyball, puzzling, crab hunting, swimming, boogie boarding, tanning, eating, drinking and laughing. Even though getting to and from can be a bit painful it is always worth it. Here are the pictures to tell the story of our week.
|My co-pilot caught a nap. He was on shift the night before we left.|
|We drove half way to Vicksburg, where we enjoyed free happy hour and pool.|
Our only hiccup on the first leg was that Ryan got carsick an hour in and threw up.
|Day 2- last leg to Destin, girls stretching their legs when we stopped to eat.|
|Poor Ryan went straight to her bunk bed when we got there.|
She was not feeling well and we discovered later she was running a fever.
|Pj checking out the deck.|
|She finally felt good on second day!|
|Emma and Beckett wasted no time!|
|Polly wasn't to sure about the beach at first|
|Amanda was a big help with Polly|
|My surfer girl|
|My beach baby|
|My pretty girl.|
|Beckett and Emma slow dancing!|
|At a firemen's wedding.|

|At the wedding this little boy (also named Ryan) was crazy about our Ryan.|
|He asked her to dance.|
|It was so cute.|
|She was so giddy and shy.|

|Last toast on the last night.|
Great friends, great trip!
|The drive from Destin to Vicksburg was brutal.|
Worst leg, hands down.
6 hours of hell.
Emma was in a great mood.....
|See how much fun we were having!|
|Glad to be out of the car and at the hotel!|
|Last leg, crossing the mighty Mississippi.|
