Last week of summer!

This is the official last week of summer here at the Stone house! Next Monday my Jackson starts kindergarten. KINDERGARTEN!!! Wait, how did that even happen???!! Wasn't he just a baby...ummm...yesterday???

This week we are soaking up the last bit of summer break together.

Here is a bit of what we were up to last week:
Jackson was in a day camp last week at Oklahoma Children's theatre. They did a performance from the broadway musical and movie, "Newsies." He did such a fab job and we were all so proud!

Here he is with his group doing a dance to, "Seize the Day."


The other morning Jackson had a case of the grumps and was annoyed with all of us. He went to his room and made this sign which is supposed to say, "Keep Out." Bless his sounding out the words heart. For the rest of the weekend Renzi and I would randomly shout out, "Ce Pot!" (Don't worry, J had no idea what we were saying.)

We are also in the throws of some major toddler meltdowns. Can you tell?

Walker has quite the personality and is not shy to let you know EXACTLY how he is feeling at any given moment. It can be quite frustrating as a parent but I know this season doesn't last too long and soon he will be able to tell us what he needs instead of screaming at us. And then you look up and he is crashed out and you *almost* forget how loud the last few minutes had just been. *almost.* ha!!!

I'm going to miss the lazy summer days but I really am looking forward to seeing the littles learn and grow this year. In addition to Jackson being in kindergarten, Walker will be in the 18 month-2 year old class at Mother's Day Out and I love that class. Jackson learned so much there and every time he was there he came home singing a new song or had learned a new skill or bible verse. I love that Walker will get to do this too! Walker and I will also be doing a mommy and me gymnastics class which should be interesting to say the least. Jackson is also playing soccer and flag football this fall so it should be pretty busy but oh so fun!

How fun! Walker and B could be twins- I'm hoping the meltdowns pass soon too! We are doing mommy and me Ballet this fall and I'm prepared for 2 year olds to be better dancers than I am haha!
