Third grade already....whew! Can't believe how much Rai changed over the summer. This one is from the last day of 2nd grade, Rai and her BFF Mika....Then these two little squirts started Sprouts preschool today. You can just see the excitement on their little faces.

The grass got a bit overgrown in the backyard which proved to be a great place to catch teensy, green grasshoppers. The kids had a blast chasing them around and playing in the sprinkler. I was surprised that they weren't frightened to hold them, being so jumpy and all. Guess they don't mind the little ones like the ginormous one that about scared us to death in the car the other day. We were just heading out to run errands when Raistlyn spied this gigantic something flying around the car - IT WAS INSIDE! A 4 inch grasshopper...NO KIDDING! Raistlyn & I were both screaming while Caiden was just looking around quizzically because he never got a look at it. I rolled down the passenger side window and the monsterous jumpy thing quickly escaped to freedom. Lucky for Us because I don't know what would have happened had it landed on any of us. Yeah, funny now....not so much then.
