My first day of ballet!

Ever since Abby started ballet last year, I’ve been SO excited to go myself! I have been practicing all summer to Abby’s dance recital video, and today was FINALLY my first dance class of the year! My teacher said I did GREAT, and I’m already looking forward to my very first recital in June!

My first field trip!

I went on my very first preschool field trip today to the pumpkin farm! My whole class was there, and we had so much fun learning about pumpkins, going on a hayride, picking our own pumpkins and even playing at the park! I LOVE preschool!

We learned all about different kinds of pumpkins and how they grow… and the most amazing part is that we all sat still and listened!

My friend Amber and I loved hanging out together and going for a hayride to pick our pumpkins…

Mommy even got to come with me, and she had no other kids, so I got to have her all to myself!

Rodeo!!!

We took our first trip to a Chili Cook-Off and Rodeo this weekend and we had so much fun! Watching the rodeo was fun for mommy & daddy, but Abby & Emily just liked eating cotton candy, and Ben found his new favorite food… FUNNEL CAKES!!!

This was the second cowboy out of the gate, and he fell off of his bucking Bronco right after mommy took this picture and had to go to the hospital. Abby’s had us diligently praying around the clock that he would be ok…

There was a lot of roping cattle to be seen!

Can you find Abby, Emily & Daddy in the crowd? It like “Where’s Waldo”!

We had no idea how those cowboys stay on their crazy horses!

In fact, a lot of them couldn’t stay on at all!

Some of the cowboys even jumped off their horses to wrestle some cattle to the ground by hand… They are crazy!!!

It was an exhausting day, but we had a blast! Thanks Mom & Dad!

It was time…

As sad as it was for me, it was time that I grew up just a little bit more and got rid of my binkies last night. Mommy knew that I wouldn’t be able to do it if my binky was downstairs in box, so she bought me 3 pink balloons to send my binky up on the Binky Fairy Express! We even wrote on the balloon to make SURE that it arrived at the Binky Fairy’s home! Even though I was a little nervous, I was VERY brave and let my binky go one last time…

After only 5 minutes of crying, I fell asleep for the very first time with NO binky and I slept all night long!

When I woke up in the morning, I found a very special gift from the Binky Fairy!
