Meet the Teacher Night {week}

This past Thursday night was Our Annual Meet the Teacher Night!!!  It is such an exciting and FUN night for all the kiddos and students---what teacher did I get? and WHO will be in my room?
This year we had no surprises.  Mrs. Smith looped up to 3rd grade with all her students.  I DO love the fact that they already have relationships set --- and I know that must take some of the nerves away. 
AND....3rd grade is UPSTAIRS!! 
I know Joshua is super excited about this:)))
It was a SUPER crazy busy week for me getting ALLLLLLLL my stuff ready for Kindergarten. 
My night with my kiddos was awesome too:))
Krys was so great to bring the boys up on Thursday night:))

Wishing all our school kiddos a GREAT school year!!!

Just simple food : hotdogs and chips:)

Kyle and the FWPD

Yesterday Kyle graduated from the Fort Worth Police Academy.  He had been a Tarrant County officer since 2009, but had decided to go to FW.  We all went to watch and support him :))
Here he is walking in --- they all look almost the same!
A little sweetness!!

There were lots of awards to hand out during the ceremony.  Top driver, top shooter, etc.  Kyle, however, I think got the BEST award.  It was an award given to him by his fellow classmates.  It was the MOST RESPECTED award.  I know he was SO proud!!! 
What an HONOR!!
Kyle and his course leaders
Here he is receiving his badge!
Kennedy and Christie got to go up and pin it on him :)))
Nora stayed back :))
Inspections to make sure uniforms were PERFECT!!!
Getting sworn in!!!
And these are some pictures of friends and family after it was over.
