High Five for Friday (8.31.18)

My Gal Hal was cast as an angel in Ballet Brazos' 2018 production of The Nutcracker Ballet! (Nutcracker casting officially marks the end of our tryout/audition "season". Hallelujah.)

Thanks to our orthodontist, we enjoyed what will likely be our last night out at the swimming pool for the year. (You read that right: "last night out at the swimming pool". Summer in Texas lasts for at least two more months, but our city's public swimming pools close this weekend.) Slowly but surely I'm making back the cost of braces! 😂
I took zero pics of Will. These girlies (none of whom are patients
but instead tagged along with siblings/friends) sure are cute though!

Will plays - at best - two soccer games a season at home in College Station. So grateful for friends who braved a 107° heat index and scorching sun to come watch him play when these games rolled around.
The bigs.
The littles. Not so interested in soccer.
They kept "cool" by dunking their
heads in a cooler full of ice water. 
We survived! Nearly eight hours from start to
finish, including five spent baking in the sun. 

I have no picture to prove it, but on Saturday night Tom and I went out with friends and for the first time ever, NONE OF US HAD TO HIRE A BABYSITTER. That's right, all of our bigs are old enough to stay home alone. Can I get a Hallelujah?! Can I get an Amen?! (All of our littles were at a birthday party.)

Last but not least, look at this:

Five full years separate these two photos: the one on the left was taken shortly after Hallie started pre-k and the one on the right was taken on Tuesday. Adorable, right? And I'd say we got out money's worth out of that dress!

Happy Friday, Chasing Roots!
