Matthews Alive

Several weeks ago we got to go to "Matthews Alive", a fun parade and carnival in downtown Matthews.  The kids liked seeing all of the bands and floats in the parade, and they enjoyed choosing a ride at the carnival.  After almost a year of living here, we are starting to see familiar faces around town, which is always comforting.  We look forward to participating in many more fun, local events like this one!

Preschool for Maclain

After taking a hiatus from preschool since the move, it was finally Maclain's turn to go back to school in September.  She is going 3 mornings a week and is really enjoying her days there.  We adore her teacher and she seems to have such a sweet little crew in her class.  Maclain especially loves the days they get to go to music class.  She is already learning so much and we look forward to a great year!


Maddox started kindergarten back at the end of August and I am happy to report that things have gone very smoothly so far.  He has the sweetest little class and we love his sweet teacher, Mrs. Granger.  I have been able to go volunteer a few times so far this year, and I am loving getting to know all of the kiddos in his class.

I take him to school in the mornings, but we decided to let him ride the bus home in the afternoons since Miller still naps during that time.  I was nervous about it at first, but he absolutely loves it.  The bus stops basically right in front of our house, so I just stand in the yard and wait for him.

We are so grateful to have had such a great start to the school year!  I can't believe it's already October!
