Logan's 1st School Project

At the end of August, Logan had to do his first school project,
which was an all about me person. They had to dress up a paper doll like them 
and everything about them. Then they had to tell the class about it.

He loved putting it together with me!
Here it is all finished:

Love this super sweet boy of mine!!

1st Day of SCHOOL!!

On August 29th, our sweet kids had their first day of school for the school year.
This year we have TWO in school! 
Its still kills me that Logan is now old enough to be in Kindergarten!

Here in the public schoosl in Nevada, Kindergarten is all day.
It was hard, yet so nice that Logan finally had his day filled with fun!

We started the day with our traditional Back to School Breakfast:

Our sweet Miss started 3rd Grade this year and had{explaining in a later post}
 Mrs. Wolf as her teacher at Kathy L. Batterman Elementary.
She was amazing and has taught for 20+ years. She explained to us that the kids would only have 10 minters of homework, plus reading. She still taught all the traditional ways of cursive {we were SO HAPPY about that} and they would say the pledge everyday. 

Our awesome stud started Kindergarten and had Mrs. Urrea at Kathy L. Batterman Elementary.
She was new to the school this year and was just the sweetest!

They both took the bus this year. Kaitlyn was so excited to have Logan on the bus and he was excited to finally be joining all the kids on it!

Waiting for the bus to arrive...

Waving 'hi' to Kaitlyn through the window

Dave and I then drove over to the school to meet the kids when they got of the bus and help them to their new line up spots.
Dave went with Kaitlyn and I went with Logan.

Millie just hanging out while waiting at the school for the bus.

Finally the bus arrived!

Logan getting tagged so they know what bus he is on.

Kaitlyn's turn!

Now we are just gathering waiting for everyone to get off the bus and be instructed

Logan and his friend Brian. He lives in our complex.

Friends from the complex

Kinder line walking over to the kindergarten area. It is quite the walk for them!

Apparently Kaitlyn immediately found one of her friends from second grade, Michayla!
They were so happy to see each other again!

Checking out Millie

Dad and Mom stopped to get slurpees on the way home to celebrate!

It was such a weird day to only have Millie at home!
It took some getting used to, but it was so nice!

Late that afternoon we went and met them off the bus...

They had the best 1st day and had so much to tell us,
especially Logan!!
He did so well!

Millie 11 Month Days

On August 2nd, Millie turned 11 Months!
As every moments passes we love that little peanut more and more!

She is getting so big!! AHH!

She started clapping! Sweet Babe!

Finally, she pulled herself up to the couch! Way to go Baby!

The pulling herself up in her playpen!

Just so proud of herself for her new big girl standing and pulling herself up!

I just thought it was so cute how she pulled herself up, but didn't get her legs together!

In August, Millie had a follow up 6 month eye exam with her ophthalmologist.
At this vista he check for lazy eye as well as seeing if she was going to need glasses to help her see.
She did not have lazy eye!
She did have a slight prescription, but it was not big enough that she would need glasses at that time.
He does want to follow up every 6 months until she is 3 to make sure she keeps progressing well with her eye sight.  We do go back next month!

Millie's first time sitting upright in a grocery cart!
She LOVED it!

Now that she can pull herself up...she is starting to get into everything!!

Yummy food!!

Trying out a Sweet Pickle for the first time...
she takes after her dad on that one!!

Saying 'Mama' for the FIRST time!!


For a little bit Logan's mattress was right on the floor. Millie thought she was just awesome being
able to just crawl right on and off of it! HAHA!!

Eating a yummy ice cream popsicle from Dairy Queen. Mmm!

So funny story about this poor picture.
Millie had a super bad diaper rash for a short time and so we had been doing our family trick that has been passed down for generations. We use pure corn starch along with vasiline. It works so amazingly well! Anywho, Daddy was changing her diaper and I have a trick to it so this doesn't happen when opening the can, but I didn't tell him so he went to open it and it expoladed all over Millie. Poor was very funny though!

Playing in her box of toys...

She found herself in the mirror!
It was so sweet!

Grandma Schroeder came in for a surprise visit so she could be here for her 1st Birthday!
{Grandma and Grandpa Ulrich also came, they arrived on the day of her birthday.}

Millie had fun swimming with Grandma when she got here:

One day we went to lunch with Grandma Schroeder to Zupas.
Millie had so much fun playing with the spoons.
She also loved sharing our soup!

AHH! Time needs to slow down!
