First day of Pre-K

Yesterday was Jackson's first day of Pre-K. He's in school Monday thru Thurs 9-2. Yesterday he informed Jeremy that "you don't learn things at school" and informed me that the teachers "made me do boring things"

It couldn't have been that bad, because when I picked him up, he jumped up and down and yelled "that was cool" and was excited to go back to school this morning:)

What in the world?

Isaac the big 3rd grader

Jackson the big Preschooler

Kayla the big 4th grader

Makayla as a sweet preschooler

Isaac as a sweet "innocent" preschooler

I can't believe school starts in two days. This summer went by way too quickly. This was definitely the best summer vacation yet. Jeremy was home all summer. We were able to go to Washington as a family for the first time during the summer. We got to have Grammy and Poppy visit. Amy, Dusty, and Colton visited. Grandma and Grandpa visited. It was a busy summer.

Makayla will be a big bad 4th grader. We are so excited to still be in McKinney and for the kids to go to McNiel Elementary School again. We love McNiel and are so glad to be there again. Makayla and Isaac have gone here since Kindergarten and we are so familiar with the school. Makayla has Mrs. Clay for homeroom and is soooo excited to have her best friend Lindsey in the same class with her.

Isaac will be in 3rd grade which in Texas means TAKS testing this year. The kids seem to really think this is a big deal:) He will have Mrs Todd:) Which is so exciting, because Makayla had Mrs. Todd last year and we just adored her. This is the second year in a row Isaac has had Makayla's teacher from the year before. Isaac thinks that's way cool.

We've decided to hold Jackson back one year. So he will be going to Little Saints Preschool. The same preschool Makayla and Isaac both went to. It's a wonderful school and I'm so excited that Jackson will be able to be there. The teachers are all amazing. He will go to school Monday through Thursday, 9 to 2. I'm so glad to have Fridays with him for one more year. I really think this will be prefect for Jackson to have one more year to prepare for Kindergarten.

A Logsdon family favorite is talent night. Jackson danced for us and played the piano, Makayla sang with Jeremy accompanying her and played the piano, Isaac showed off his six pack, Poppy sang with Jeremy accompanying him, Jeremy sang and played, Dusty played the guitar, and I played the piano. I think Colton even got in on the action and danced around a little. Wow I had no idea how talented we all are:) It was fun to just sit around and laugh.

The Dallas World Aquarium

The Dallas World Aquarium was amazing. We've lived in Dallas over four years and never visited the aquarium because the price of admission is pretty high. But it was well worth the money to go and visit. I'm so glad Poppy really wanted to go there or I don't think we would ever have gone.

They have a little of everything there: Manatee, octopus, shark, jaguar, flamingo, sloth, many different beautiful birds, crocodile, monkeys, fish, and snakes. The neat thing was how close you could get to everything and the vegetation everywhere made you feel like you were in the jungle. AMAZING. It was a definite favorite of all the adults. The kids complained the whole time about being tired and hungry so it hard to tell how much they enjoyed it.
