Our new Home

So we made it to Fayetteville, Arkansas about a week or so ago and we are finally settled into our new home. It is small and cozy, but it is nice. We at least don't have to walk very far to get to what we want. Sams school is directly across the street and Rich's school is down the street, about a block away. The picture above is taken standing at the front door. So yes, it is small, but I am just happy we can actually fit our kitchen table! You can see directly down the hall is our bedroom and what you can see is pretty much it.
Then it is the kids' room. They are really enjoying sharing a room (which makes bedtime really fun for me!) and have gotten along really well so far.

This might be my favorite feature of our new home. The mascot for the University of Arkansas is the Razorbacks. This is the side of our building during the day...

And this is at night. Nice. Go Hogs!

Samantha's First Day of Kindergarten

Samantha was so excited to start Kindergarten this year. She has been ready for about 2 years now and could hardly go to sleep the night before. She had her outfit picked out and was especially excited to wear her new "twinkle toes" shoes (imatation sketchers) thanks to Grandma! I even made it through the morning without crying...pretty impressive considering I am 8 months pregnant!
This is Samantha coming out of school. She was so happy, a little tired but couldn't wait to tell us all about it.

It was a long day for Ryan. He was ready to pick her up the moment I got back from dropping her off. As soon as she came out of the door he gave her the biggest cute! I can't believe I have a child in school, but I am excited for all the things that she is going to learn and the experiences she will have. I love you Samantha!
