August Update

I've got a few updates for the month already. For those who may not know, Madeleine and I were involved in a car crash when a drunk driver ran a red light at 60mph one evening as we left church. I wanted to share the pictures from our accident and remind all the readers the importance of having your child properly restrained in the correct style of carseat. Madeleine made it out of the accident without even being sore. I praise God daily that he kept all us girls safe.

And the drunk driver's car (which I must add was UNinsured)

In other August news, the nursery is finished! We are just patiently awaiting the arrival of Miss Olivia to fill the room.

My sweet girl friends from the squadron gave me a terrific baby shower. I really appreciate all these ladies!

Madeleine started her first day of Pre Kindergarten. Her teacher is Mrs. Walker. There were lots of tears (hers not mine) at drop off, but upon picking her up she was all smiles and full of stories of her day. However, she did inform me that she does not need to go back. I'm hoping the following days are easier and find us both letting go better.

I also wanted to share pictures of the newest addition to our family............I love, love, love this car and my fabulous husband who bought it for me.

July was a fast month and I didn't even take that many pictures. Matthew was deployed most of the month so Madeleine and I were in Texas for a couple of weeks. We celebrated July 4th in the Moore family fashion at the lake house.

Matthew was able to make it home for his birthday. Since he was never allowed to play baseball, Madeleine and I treated him to a baseball themed cake!

In other news, Jolie had to have oral surgery and was "out of it" for a few days. We thought she looked so peaceful hanging out on her bed we bought b/c we felt guilty for her pain.

Madeleine finished up gymnastics for the summer. She will begin ballet and school in August. I'm excited about all the things this fall will bring - including cooler weather!
