Ready for school!

We are enjoying our last few days of summer!!  School is just around the corner, and I'm actually ready for it to begin!  I never understood the moms who would say, in late August, "I am ready for school to start!"  I swore I would never feel that way, thinking I would never be ready to send them back.  But the thing is... they are ready.  They are ready for a routine again.  Addie is ready to be around friends.  And I am ready :)  I get excited for Addie as she will go full day this year.  I can't wait to watch Eli start preschool again with this new confidence he's developed over the summer.  I can't wait to see what the year holds for them. 
Lord, help us to soak up every last day of summer and enjoy being together, but then prepare these kids for their school year.

 Addie at 17 months...

Isabelle at 17 months...

They look a lot alike, but yet are so so different.  Addie had 10 teeth at this age... Izzy has 8.  Izzy eats the tips off the markers and draws on the walls and floor... Addie didn't play with markers (but if we would've had some in the house when she was little, she would have only colored!).  Addie had a handful of words... Izzy has about a million!!  Addie was napping once a day... Izzy is hanging on to two most days.  Both of them are amazing.  I'm excited as they continue to grow, as they continue to love each other, and as they continue to experience what it's like to have a sister and be a sister.
