I can't believe Reece is 1! Time flies! We had some pictures taken before the big first birthday celebration so I thought I would post a few of our favorites. I will get some pics up of the big party soon.

Reece started school at Presbyterian Preschool this week. She goes three days a week for a couple of hours each day. We had heard how wonderful the school and the director were through her work with the McGuffees on literacy. I even think the McGuffee children went to preschool there. Reece seems to do very well at school and loves to play with all of her new friends. Her teachers, Miss Denise and Miss Kelly, are wonderful ladies and are truly gifted at working with children. It doesn't hurt that she has the director, Holly, and Miss Leslie at school to look in on her. We are excited to see all of the new things she will be learning and to meet all of her new friends!

We were able to do some amazing things while we were in NYC. One of the highlights was seeing Ben in American Idiot on Broadway. Totally and completely blew me away! Ben truly belongs on stage and Matt and I were so happy to see him perform! I also got to visit with Big Carlene, a relative, who is a remarkable woman. It was my second visit with her in my lifetime, and both times I have spoken with her have been some of the most memorable moments I've ever had.
We then left the big city for the Hamptons (please say it in your most lofty and uppity voice). The Hamptons were beautiful and we couldn't have asked for better weather. The rehearsal dinner on the beach was perfect and Aunt Jan did SO much to make sure everyone was taken care of while we were there. We appreciate her efforts so much! The wedding was an even more perfect and the whole evening was so wonderful! Thank you Ben and Kat for including us on your special day!
Beware of all the pictures I am about to post!

Reece is 9 months and she is mobile! Watch out! She has started doing so many new things this month. She talks a lot and we think we can make out the words dog, book, and go, along with other gibberish that I am sure is very important to her. She has started to crawl and has become very good at it in the last couple of days. The blissful, peaceful months of her staying in one place are over forever. She is still a great sleeper and eater and is learning to try new foods all the time. Hopefully, she will stay this way!
Friends at last! Sam has finally accepted that there is a new Princess!
Hanging out with Graunt Phoebe. So much fun!!
Reece and Madeline spending some quality time!

During all of the fun, we did not forget the reason for the holiday. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the service men and women proudly serving our country. We are very proud of our family members who have served in the armed forces and thank you all you did for this country!
Reece did not enjoy the life jacket
First boat ride!
