The girls went back to school today. It's official we have a sophomore and a second grader! Today has been an emotional day for me. This morning I realized that if Fletcher lived at home he would've started Pre-K at Will Rogers with Maddie. Please know I'm so grateful for everything Fletcher is doing and I'm loving all the milestones he's reaching, it was just sad not to drop off another Burns kid at WRE today. How neat it would be for Maddie and Fletcher to go to school together, see each other in the halls, her to be protective of him...blah blah blah cry cry cry! It's been a hard day but I am happy for my girls and I know it's going to
be a great school year for them.
Our sweet sophomore!

Kayleigh has had a very active summer. We drove her to Mississippi to visit her maternal grandparents and she stayed for four weeks! Craig, Maddie and I only stayed for a few days. We had a great time seeing family and friends. Her grandparents also took Kayleigh and one of her friends Marley to Gulf Shores and they had a blast! Laying on the beach and shopping what more could two teenage girls want? Kayleigh is now 15 and 1/2 years old so you know what that means? We're about to have a driver on our hands! UGH! How can it be that she's old enough to drive? It seems like yesterday that I was taking her to her first day of school and snapping pictures with teachers and new backpacks and lunch boxes! She's really a delightful young lady and we're so proud of her! We're praying that this year is great and that she enjoys learning!
Maddie and Kayleigh one last hug!
Craig and I are doing great! He's just working away and I'm so grateful to have a husband who goes to work each day without complaining to provide for his family!! God is good to the Burns family! Craig was invited to his college football 20 year reunion in Mississippi. We had a great time meeting all these football players we have heard about for years!
Craig and his linemen buddies! Go Choctaws!
