Goodbye to the 303

I am surprised by how overcome with emotion I was last night when I went and officially moved us out of our apartment. It was our firdt home here in VA, Jacksons first home ever and the longest place Joey has lived in since she was born! Yes we move around a lot. You were a great first place here, many friends were made and parties were given. I won't miss the three flights of stairs or the extremely high utilities we paid. But the pool rocked and so did being so close to the river! But as they say, on to bigger and better! I will post about the new place soon! Oh and good news, I found Kevs socks!!


Prima Ballerina

Yeah Joey started ballet! I'm not going to lie I have been looking
forward to this day for a long time and she loved it!

Whatcha eaten under there?

Oh how he LOVES pancakes! I mean loves them. He goesto town on them
and when they are gone is still asking for more!

No one was stirring.. Except JoJo

We have been in the process of moving for the past little while and
since we have been waste deep in painting and flooring, it hasn't left
a lot of Joey time. So when she came down at six am this morning Kev
simply handed her his phone and went back to sleep. But instead of watching a movie which is what she usually does. (girl can navigate an iphone better than I can) she went around the house and took pictures. Jackson asleep, Jackson's new blue walls, Jackson's closet. Her bed and her backpack. It made me laugh so hard when after church she came and showed me her little photo shoot! To be honest, I couldn't be more proud!


Howd you like them apples!

Over the river and through the woods to the apple picking orchard we go! Just one of our many planned Joy School field trips! Joey was so excited to actually pick apples! And I was so excited to get to take so many cute pictures!

I love the little red buckets!

And so did they! The kids are so funny! What one does they all must do! and they do!

Ready to get down to business! So excited she actually let me take pictures of her!

Trey is in this picture...just hiding in the back! It was a little hard to get them to all smile, or sit, or stand or stay in one orchard line together!

Loved these pictures of Joey! Once I mention Snow White's apple she couldn't get enough. Except she kept recounting the show, if you recall the red apple isn't the right apple to eat.

So many apples!

Oh did I mention we brought monkeys with us instead of kids? I am sure the crazy bee lady that was running the orchard would not have approved, but the kids thought it was fun!

The whole group! Babies and all! We often say that it is Joey's world and we are all livin in it. It couldn't be more true about Jax! Poor guy get drug everywhere at any time all on a account of his big sis. Thankfully he is easy going and loves to be around her and laugh at her! So it works!

Thank goodness or it would be a long semester of Joey School! (that was a typo but it totally worked!:)


Joy? School!

Introducing the newest class of 2024! Wow is that weird to think about!
A while back I got to talking with my friend and we thought it would be fun to do a joy school for out kids this fall! Joey was so excited for her first day of school! I was too actually. We did her nails, got a new back pack, a pair of designer jeans and sent her off! I think she is going to love it! Now I am just hoping us moms can keep up! Oh and the babies too!

Joey, Sam, Sydney and Trey all smiles for their first day! Which I heard went well! Even if the group photo didn't really work so much... Look at the boys, "um seriously?" Cracked me up!

It's my week to teach this week so we will see how it goes! I am thinking it will be a smashing success! I love these kiddos!
