Izzy's 6th Birthday Party and Some Picture Updates!

Over the weekend we had Izabel's 6th Birthday Party! Her official birthday post will hopefully come tomorrow. She had her party at gymnastics again and had a great time. Since her new school is so far away we did not have a lot of people come from her class but some of her friends came and then some family friends as well. Her best friend since she was 3, Sadie, joined us as well and Izabel was so excited to see her! They are adorable together and we need to do a better job of planning some play dates. We are hopeful that Izabel will have Sadie's mom for first grade next year at our neighborhood school so that will help :)

Izabel got a lot of amazing gifts and we are very blessed to have such wonderful friends and family. We had a great weekend together! After the party we went to dinner at Friendly's since Noah will not be able to be here for Izzy's actual birthday dinner. 

I also added some pictures from the past couple weeks. October is another super busy month but my comprehensive exams for my Ph.D. are at the end of the month so I will be able to breathe easier when this month is over! 

Noah and I have been having a great time at ODU football games! We are 4-2 right now. Go Monarchs!

The kids have been spending a lot of time in the car going back and forth to school. They read in the mornings and sleep the whole way home! Their school is doing the million minute challenge so we have been reading a lot more than normal and loving it! Tanner's favorite book right now is Wacky Wednesday and Izabel loves anything with a princess :) Izabel has finally started getting some real homework and takes it very seriously!

They made self-portraits at school which I adore and can't wait to hang them up at home. They have also been enjoying gymnastics and have made great improvements in their skills!
