Our First trip to the Dentist ;)

They did great. We loved this pediatric dentist, and the kids got toys.

cute decorations, (but is that tv on for the kids? haha) nice show!

They love school

Really, they both love it.  I am constantly surprised at how adept they are at everything.  Solly cried a bit for a second on the first day but rallied and loved it.  He loves the train most (they have a huge wooden train set).  I have the kids first dentist appointments today after school and I will definitely bring the camera for that!  Here are some pics of school.  Enjoy.

Yep, I am willing to give it a go three mornings a week.  I really hope Solly likes it (can deal with me leaving).  I know Dede will love it.

Mikala is seventeen

Our sweet Mikala is seventeen today, and it was a beautiful day.  She went to school, came home and we went to paint pottery.  After that, we went to Gam and Pa's house to have dinner cake and presents.  Mikala Helwigh Kamper we love you with all our hearts.  How lucky we are to love you.
