Happy Thanksgiving!

While the big kids were off "hangin out" with friends ... the little girls and I made Turkey cookies! Apparantly, this is a new tradition for us ... we made them last year, and Evie reminded me that we needed to do them again this year!

School's Back in Session!

I'm not sure how I missed an ENTIRE summer but, let me just say we were BUSY! June was filled with camps ... Dance camp at TU, Young Women's Girls' camp, Boy Scout camp, and EFY. July was MY month off. Even though I was taking 2 summer classes at RSU, I had ACL reconstructive surgery at the first of July and was nothing but LAZY for the rest of the month. August came, and another school year is here again!
TJ is in 10th grade, and starting the year off with Marching Band, and he'll finish the year with his favorite ... Jazz Band.Kaylee is in 9th grade, and beginning her high school experience with the Dance Team.Chelsea is in 8th grade, and is continuing her art and soccer explorations. Maddy is in 5th grade, and is at the Upper Elementary. She's learning the trumpet and playing soccer again.Evie is in all day kindergarten, and playing soccer. It's killing me ... but I'm enjoying the extra time with Claira.Claira is back in preschool 2 days a week, and is loving it! She didn't start until a week after her siblings, so she had a hard time waiting. Today was her first day ... as you can see she's proud to be one of Tidwell's Turtles.We started off with our tradition of breakfast at Braum's. This year was a bit strange because TJ drove his sisters to school, while Tom and I took the youngest three. Am I ready for this?

Maddy's Graduation

Maddy was the star at her 4th grade Graduation! This celebration is a tradition at our Elementary school because the students move on to the Upper-Elementary in the 5th grade. They had a great time with all the end of year field trips ... Bounce U, and the 4th grade Talent Show (pictures to come).

Maddy also tried out softball again after 3 years. She is a natural! So far she's played catcher, right field, left field and shortstop. Go Cowgirls!

Last night we enjoyed music from Kaylee's 8th Grade Band ... they finished with a beautiful arrangement of Amazing Grace. It was very moving!
Next, we enjoyed TJ's High School Jazz band . . . who won National recognition in San Antonio, Texas last month!
