We dedicated Kate this past Sunday. It was one of the most moving experiences I have ever had. As soon as we walked up there I could feel the presence of God so strong. It was very overpowering. I got teared up while Gary was talking about her at first. When he started praying over her the tears just kept coming. It wasn't just me because Gary got emotional too. He later told me that he had never gotten so choked up during a baby dedication like that. He said it was just an awesome thing to look and see the heritage that was standing there. I know that God has great things in store for Abby and Kate. It was such a powerful and precious moment to dedicate her to God. This was one day that I will never forget.

Abby started her first day of Pre-K this past Monday. She is going to the same school she did last year. We absolutely LOVE it! They are wonderful! They really love the children and the kids learn so much. This year her class is called the Rainbows. I have really enjoyed it because I have been able to drop her off and pick her up. That is the down fall of being a teacher, you miss out on these precious moments. I LOVE being at home with the girls right now. It is so hard to go off to work and leave them. I am going to be volunteering in her class as much as I can before I have to go back to work. I just love her school and I know that Abby does too! She wasn't nervous at all! Now next year when she starts Kindergarten I will be a MESS!

Kate went for her 2 month checkup today. She weighed 10lb 15oz and measured 23 1/2 inches. She's going to be tall like Abby we think. The doctor said that she is doing great, very healthy. Then came the shots. It was horrible. Michael is out of town so I had to be there by myself with Abby. Abby tried to show her support, but I think she was just happy it wasn't her! :) Kate cried, not as bad as I thought she would. It's horrible to have to sit there and watch them get stuck by that needle :( We came home and she has been fine since! She's a trooper. I got some pictures of her legs with the bandaids on them.

I've been really bad about getting on here. I'm going to try a little harder to update this better. This past week as been busy with school starting tomorrow. I don't have to go back (YAY!!!) until October 13. Here are some pictures I have taken of the girls. The bottom picture is of Abby and Kate laying in our bed. Abby let Kate borrow her blankie and Kate LOVED the way it felt. It's very silky! She wouldn't let go of it. Abby was a good sport about it and said that she could borrow it. :) Kate loves to play with her keys. She holds on to them and throws her hands around. She is really smiling. It's fun to get her to talk and smile! Kate went to bed last night at 9:30 and didn't wake up until 7:30 this morning. She normally gets up around 5:30 to eat. I woke up at 6:15 and realized that she hadn't woken up yet. I got scared and went to her room and felt her chest. She was breathing!!! I tried to go back to sleep but I couldn't because I got myself worked up.
Abby is doing good. Very proud of Kate. She helps out a lot. She is getting ready to start back to preschool on August 25. We go to meet her teacher this Friday. We are excited!
I think that is about it here. Michael will be out of town all week long so I'll be lonely without him! I hope everyone has a good week!
