And here's my CP walking into the school. She didn't think she needed me to walk her in at first, ("She didn't need me" - doesn't that just hurt to read??) BUT as we swung the corner into the parking lot she had a change of heart and allowed me to escort her to her room. AND I will do so every year until she doesn't let me anymore. It's only a matter of time before she won't let me take these pictures and dote on her like this so I'm treasuring it up as much as I can!!!!

So you know the twins started pre-K last week. They attend the local Baptist church which has chapel each week for the kidos. SO, I'm thinking my girls are learning some great new songs while at their new school that they LOVE so much. Therefore,this is what I overheard this morning:
Maggie singing to herself "Our Father, Father, Father who are with Heather."
Translation (I think) "Our Father who art in Heaven."
What a hoot she is!!!!! She also made a new friend today but she doesn't know her name. Interesting.........I'll get back to ya on that one, if we ever learn her name.

Ok so our VBS was a month ago, at least I'm finally getting around to it. I just couldn't leave it out because it was that awesome this year (it's always pretty good)!! This year Alex and I were roped into....Oh, I mean we had the pleasure of being VBS "Rangers" to the 6th grade girls and boys. Wow, was that interesting but mostly it was FUN! I haven't been around kids that age in a long time. I honestly think they have more energy than my girls do!! Seriously!! Alex ate it up. He was an excellent "Ranger." He actually was the biggest kid in our group. I love seeing him let loose and have fun like that!! I'm thinking I'll just handle these preschool-grade school years and hand our girls over to him when they hit pre-teen age. He's pretty good with them.
Anyway, our theme centered around The Nature of God. The decorations were incredible if I do say so myself. My girls talked all the way home every night about it all.
Mrs. Womack made this absolutely amazing "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" area and I can't begin to tell you how talented she and so many people in our church are!!
I just have to share with you my Bee Hive. Alex and I helped a very tiny bit one evening with the decorations and this is one of our contributions!! Aren't the little bees cute??

We love to go to parks, especially my girlies! A couple of weeks ago (because yes, that is how far behind I still am) we went to the cute park in Helena. I don't know the name and honestly don't need to. It's the one behind the Municipal buildings. Helena isn't that big so it's easy to find. Anyway, it was one of those awesome days we had back in July so it was the perfect day for a trip to the park. The girls loved it so much this was the only picture I could get them to sit still for!! One of the best things about it was the shade trees. Have you ever noticed that a lot of parks with playgrounds do NOT have shade trees for the poor, lazy parents who just want to sit and enjoy their children while seated?!?! So this one gets and A+ for the seating arrangements and the fun level for my kidos.
It's another busy week at the Hicks household so hopefully I won't be gone too long everyone. We had Preschool orientation tonight for the twins and "Meet the Teacher" for CP in the morning. Then another meeting tomorrow night and so on and so on and (well you get the picture). I'm sure all you guys are the same.
Well, until next time and have a great week!!

Here's the group of good lookin' kidos with their purchases from the huge garage sale-like mass of stuff. Notice #1 that Zack was not all together happy about the picture and #2 Miss Maggie's lovely new headband she just HAD to have. Not sure where it is at the moment but that day it was a must have!!

Yes, she's "sun-bathing." I know it's taboo and politically incorrect these days but she gets it honest I do have to admit! I'm sure there was sunscreen on her to make the worriers feel better.
Living it up in a plasic pool. Oh those were the days.
