Ch-ch-ch-changes

Well it's the end of August and here in PA that means the start of school. Can I just say, for the record, I don't like it, not one bit. Avery started kindergarten yesterday. This means that after the easing in period she will be going to school all day as well. That means both my girls, my helpers, my friends are going to be gone ALL day. Nope don't like it, not one bit. On the brighter side Avery was extremely excited to start school. She has Ashby's kindergarten teacher which is wonderful. Ashby says she isn't excited, but she comes home happy so it can't be all bad. What are Luke and I supposed to do all day without them?
Here's Avery on her first day. She is all skirts and sparkles.


Here's Ashby on her first day, she's all tennis shoes and boy backpacks!


In other changes Avery finally lost her first tooth. She kept waiting and waiting and finally got it out. Her permanent tooth is all the way in behind it. Yikes.


In other sad yet happy yet necessary yet watch Chelsea eat her words news, we traded in our Jeep. I loved the Jeep, but not lately. It had issues that were too expensive to fix and had 168,000 miles on it, so I guess it was time.


We got this instead. It's painful to share with the world because I've always said I would never drive a minivan. Turns out we aren't in a position to afford the Suburban I would like, so this is what we came home with instead. To my credit it's a Honda which we love and it will last forever, which is good or bad if you're me and want something else sometime before 2035.



The timing of the new car couldn't have been better because another big change (pictured below) will be coming on or around March 12th.

Holy Canoly! I didn't see that one coming! SO excited for you!

Minivans are just a necessary evil of a big family. With 3 children in carseats, we had to get one. I hate it but I love it too. Its a love/hate relationship. The thing I hate the most about it is that I will never again be mistaken for anything other than a mom. Why is that bad? I don't know. I love being a mom. But like they say on the Sienna commercial, "It's not like I'm rockin the mom jeans or anything..."

Anyway, long comment-- CONGRATS! I LOVE babies!

Mandy said...

Aaaah! Congratulations!!! How are you feeling? (I'm feeling better now, and even starting to have some energy, so if there's anything I can do for you let me know!)

Welcome to the minivan club. I sometimes laugh when we drive into the parking lot at church.

You sneaky stinker - sticking that important bit of information in there at the end like that...
Congratulations! I'm glad our Samuel will have another Worth around his age. He'll be right in the middle of Ethan and your baby. Fun! Wa-whoo!

Brittany said...

Jill said...

Heather Ridge said...

Wow, so many changes. I too became a minivan mamma this past year......but I must admit.....I love it! Never thought I would say this. Congrats on numero 4.....that is awesome. We have #3 coming soon, probably October.....not sure I am ready for this!

So, when I read "What are Luke and I to do all day" I thought to myself, "Roger and Chelsea could have another cute baby to have another person at home" Then I keep scrolling and see you guys ARE expecting! How exciting. Congrats you guys :)

Kelly Jo said...

just got back from camping, it just wasn't the same without you and to know we could have tried out your new pimpin' ride?!
Maybe Ethan will pull your baby's hair?. . .we'll call it even, k?!

Kristen said...

Wow, those are ALOT of changes! Congrats on all of them! Isn't it a little pathetic that we say congrats on a van? But I'm sure you will love it. I was in that boat too of never wanting a van, but I love it. I'm excited for you and good luck with the helpers gone all day. At least it will be quieter, right?:)

Valerie said...
