Although Autumn has not arrived, 2 babies have!

Liv's sweet quote:
I was out of town and when I returned the kids picked me up at the airport and Liv said,
"Mom, we only cried for you one night and then the rest of the nights we were ok.
But, I was thinking of all of these things in the front of my mind and you were always in the back".
At Olivia & Sevrin's school they have a monthly value and the school recognizes kids from each grade that have been an example of these values each month on Monday mornings in front of the whole school .
Liv & Sev were both chosen as the leopard leaders this month!
Liv was the 2nd grader chosen for Respect & Sev was the chosen 1st grader for the same value.
So proud of these guys!!!
|This one makes me SO proud ;)|

Anyway, I picked up Sev & Liv from school that day and asked them how school was and Sev said "I am like a turkey on Thanksgiving....cooked"
Sev was holding his new nephew Lucas and was caressing the baby's little feet..."oh my gosh, his skin is super soft! I wish I could have a blanket made out of his skin"
