Gracie and Bailey's new school is wonderful and they have so many "special days" planned to make the year fun for the little ones. Their first special day was Farmer Day where they were able to dress like farmers. At school they enjoyed a true Farmers breakfast that was complete with pancakes, eggs, bacon, fruit and all the fixings. The twins thought it was so funny that they were going to be able to eat breakfast at school. They had a great day talked about how much they enjoyed their pancakes.

Fall Picture Day is always so hard because the weather is so funny. I do the same thing every year and wait until the very last minute to plan the twins outfit and then the day before pictures I find myself running around like a chicken with its head cut off. I am not sure why I always procrastinate or even make such a big deal of the day but somehow the twins usually turn out looking adorable. This year they were all into looking handsome and pretty for their big day. I can't wait to see how their picture turns out but we had fun getting all dressed up in the process!

We closed on our current house and on our new home all on the same day which was September 25th. Because we had to be out of our current house about a week before we closed due to the final walk through we ended up moving all of our belongings into Preston's parents basement. Yes, our entire house was moved into one basement. Preston and I worked every weekend for about four weeks and did a little bit each weekend and so the move really wasn't bad at all. On our big moving day we did have lots of family who came to help with the really big furniture and the final things that were lingering in our house. For one week, Preston's parents were very gracious and allowed us to live with them while also storing all of our belongings. The twins were in school so it was a pretty easy week as they were occupied with school each day. We closed on our homes on Thursday and on Friday we hired movers to move all of our big furniture into our new home. We still took lots of loads ourselves but somehow we along with the help of family were able to to get everything into our new home. I was overwhelmed by the number of boxes that were going to need unpacking but we were happy that we were finally in our new home.

Before putting the house on the market I decided to move the twins to a new school for the following year. I liked the teachers and curriculum at their previous school but I was not happy with their class size and I had heard wonderful things about First Baptist Cumming Weekday. I registered them super early as I had also been told that is hard to get into the school and that if you do not register early that their is a huge waiting list on the first day of registration day. The school was about 15 minutes from our home so it was a little but further but I was willing to drive the distance to get the twins into an excellent preK. Right before school started we got the contract on our new home and I was so excited that it was only 3.9 miles from their new school. On open house day we met the family of a little boy in the twins class who only lives a couple doors down in our new neighborhood. The distance to the school from our new home and the little friends/neighbors confirmed that everything is falling in place beautifully. On Gracie and Bailey's first day of school we were in the middle of packing up our old house and things were once again hectic. Gracie fought to bring her baby in the car and I decided to "pick my battles" and so that is why her baby is in our first day of school picture.
