Back into a routine.......

Well, all is well here at The Hollingsworth Household! This past weekend was Tiger Fan Fest and Jesse had to have his annual picture with Pouncer taken. He's getting taller!!! I remember when Pouncer would have to crouch down on his knees with Jesse. Can't believe my 2nd grader is grwoing up....
Well, of course Lance couldn't resist when he saw a pink laptop in the toy isle this week. For some reason, we found Claire before bedtime playing it in my bathroom! Whatever works for Claire......
Jesse finished his 1st school project by himself. If is a collage of "What Makes Me Special" that covers his profile in cardoard. His did the entire process ( I helped with a bit of gluing) in his own and was very proud. Way to go Jesse.
Claire, also had to have her picture taken, because she helped "watch" Jesse with his project. Well, I promise to post again very soon!

End of the 1st Day of School

Well, it was chaos picking up Jesse today with hundreds of parents doing the same, but I eventually found him and he was happy as a lark. He loved his 1st day & immediately met a new friend who sits next to him in class and they sat next to each other in lunch. He said he was funny and nice. He had lots to talk about and was as happy as I've seen him in a long time!

After school, we all went to get ice cream to celebrate the beginning of another great school year. Nana was able to come along, and Wednesday, Grandma will bring Jesse a special Beginning of the Year treat!

Nana loves her chocolate.....

I promise to post very soon!

2nd Grade Here We Come!!!

Well, Jesse started 2nd grade at a new school this year. Though very excited, he seemed to be a tad apprehensive. He was up and ready to go this morning, especially after eating his favorite breakfast!

This year, Jesse will be riding to school with Lance, which will be a change and special treat for Jesse. Sure hope Lance was not driving while taking this picture.......
Jesse found his name on this desk and was ready to go. He was sick of having his picture taken and said, " can go now...." My baby is growing up!

A Very Special Day......

Well, this weekend we celebrated Jesse & Claire's Baptism surrounded by our very special family & friends. The ceremony went smoothly and both of the kids did great. Jesse got a lot out of the ceremony. We are very proud of him! Here we are with Father Martell, and Chris and Ann, the Godparents.
