Back to School '14

We are starting year-round school here in Utah.  We got track A, which is what we wanted.  It started July 28.  I was happy so I could have more time to rest this last month of pregnancy and the kids could start meeting and making friends.
 Belle is starting 6th grade.  It's her last year of elementary.  I'm so happy she still gets recess on a playground.  I'm going to treasure her last year of elementary.  Belle loves making friends, math and reading.
 I couldn't get one good smile out of Benjamin.  He found a rollie pollie that was much more interesting.  He's starting 3rd grade.  His favorite subject is science and he loves to invent and create things.
 Benjamin played basketball before school started.

 Clara is starting 1st grade.  1st graders just had orientation Monday and then started school Tuesday.  
 Clara and Belle wore matching outfits except the shoes.  I love these shoes!
 Clara loves art and dance.
 Love this bow in the back.
 Clara's actual first day of school.  I woke up when she softly kissed my cheek and in her sweet voice whispered, "Today's the big day."  It was so cute!  She was so excited.

 This is in front of our rental town house.

 Off they go to their last year of going to the same school. 
 Ben played basketball again.
 Clara tried out the new playground before school started.


 Of course she had to have a Frozen lunch box. We love Frozen.
  I love this picture!  This was her last look before she started her first day of 1st grade.
Another matching outfit the girls picked out. This was this morning, Wednesday the 30th.

Belle's Birthday Party

Belle's birthday is not until Friday but we had her party last weekend since we're moving this weekend :(
She wanted a gymnastics party so we reserved a gym.  
They played games, did gymnastics of course, and danced.
The birthday girl does not like cake but she LOVES donuts so that's what she wanted for her birthday party.

Belle's best friend Blair.  They are two peas in a pod.  They are on the gymnastics team together and played volleyball together too.  We are so sad to have to separate these two cute friends.
Cute Maty, love this girl too!
She had to have a dance circle.
Doing the Harlem Shake
Getting Silly (or staying silly)

Party Favors. I wrote their names on their water bottles.
Work it girl!
Great group of friends.  We will miss them all so much!  I'm already praying she can have as good of friends in Utah as she's had here in Texas.

Benjamin turns 8!

Unless you know what Minecraft is, you will not understand the decorations and theme of Benjamin's birthday.  It's a video game with building blocks.  

 The big green box is called a "Creeper".  Inside was a green RC Lamborghini, Ben's dream car.

 The plates are like the building blocks in the game and they make up a Creeper face.
 The snacks are all items found in the game.

 Potion of Healing and Creeper Juice
This box head is from a character in the game.  They are playing pin the tail on the pig (from the game).

Everyone made their own Minecraft mask and creeper bag to take home party favors.
 Creeper Cake. I know it's ugly but it's what he wanted. 

 After games, presents, and cake, everyone went outside to swim.  Benjamin was very happy and had a great time at his party.
