The day before school started, we went to Louie's Pizza so the kids could get their free lunch special. They always get a coupon through the library reading program and this has been a fun summer tradition. Rosie fell asleep on the way and was still sound asleep by the time our pizzas arrived. We had fun though and enjoyed the great food.

Old Pictures

After the Coleman reunion, my brother-in-law shared a photo album of old pictures. They were so fun to look through. Here are some of my favorites from when PC was younger:

And some of Tink when she was little. I love that pic of her and PC at Christmas. We were such a small family!

First day of School

Here are the obligatory first day of school pictures:
Tink was accepted into a program called S2S (Student 2 Student) where she helps new students adjust to the school. So she had to wear her purple shirt for the first day, but it definitely came with privileges and I think she looks super cute in it. I can't believe how fast they are growing! Really wishing it would slow down a little.
Here are a few of my other cuties while waiting for the carpool rides.

Coleman Reunion

 This year for the reunion we went to Farish. We rented the "barn," which is just a nice bunkhouse with tables, a fridge, and couches. All the grandkids slept there and it was nice to hang out in there and play games and hide from the bears. (The rangers came and told us there were bears right by where we were camping one evening, so we had everyone hang out in the barn for a while.) We rented paddleboats the first day.

It was nice to have the barn to hang out and relax in. The rangers saw a bear one afternoon nearby, so we gathered all the kids in the barn for a while so they wouldn't wander off and meet an unsuspecting friend.
PC and I made a cornhole set which was a hit. We really love it. The reunion was fun and it was nice to just hang out with family with not many activities planned.
