New phone!

This is my first post on my new phone!! Here's what I've been up to since I got my new phone...

Allison & I waiting for the homecoming parade! I love working in a small town for many different reasons but this day every year just may be my favorite. I absolutely love that the high school homecoming parade comes to the elementary school and loops through our parking lot so our sweet babies can see the parade! Our kids think it's the best thing ever and love gathering candy from the big kids on the trucks! 

2 Saturdays ago 2 of my sisters and my mom & I spent ALL day in the kitchen making apple butter, apple sauce and apple  pie! We had FOUR crockpots going! It smelled like fall for sure :)

My little sister Jeri with baby Kate! That hair. 

I was sick all last week and even missed a day of school. Emma and Ty came over to tend to me and Emma thought getting as close as possible to me would make it all better... :) 

I absolutely love that dogs know when something is wrong. Emma always knows when I'm sick or upset about something & always tries to cuddle to make it better! 

Molly checked up on me Thursday to see if I was feeling better. This picture came along with the text "are you feeling better? If not, this face should make you feel better!" :) oh how I love that sweet face!!!!!!

This past Saturday we supported Ty's cousin Laurie (2nd one from the right) in walking in the race for the cure! Laurie was diagnosed with breast cancer in June just 10 weeks after losing her husband to cancer in April. She is officially in remission but still continuing her chemo to make sure no horrible cancer cells are left!!! I was so honored to walk with her on Saturday! I look up to her in so many ways! What a strong, Godly woman she is. Her team raised over $11,000 and came in 2nd place!!

Monday morning therapy on my drive into work!

Hope your week is going great!! It's almost huuummmp daaaayyy! Whoop whoop!

Boston day 2 - finally!

I'm finally posting about my second day in Boston. This no Internet thing makes me forget to post! 

On Sunday, we woke up and Brian and I walked to a cute little cafe and got breakfast! It was packed so I knew it must be good! 

After breakfast, Molly & Brian got ready to go on an afternoon date! I got to stay with Charlie Grace and I loved every second of it. 

I loved studying her sweet face, listening to & learning all her cute little noises! I knew from the minute I got there that it would be awhile before I got to see her again so I wanted to soak up every second. 

My favorite part of holding any baby is the moment they fall asleep and you can feel their body mold on you. I love that dead weight feeling when they fall asleep and are completely relaxed. 

How sweet is that face?

And those toes... ;)

"Hiii Aunt Kat!"

I loved getting to be one on one with her and I loved that her momma and daddy got to go on a date! 

After Molly & Brian got back, we got ready and went to explore Boston! I have done most of the "tourist" things on multiple occasions so I really just wanted to walk around and take the city in. We went to Georgetown Cupcakes & to see where the Boston marathon bombings took place. 

Walking around....

Boylston street is where the bombings took place. 

After walking around, we went back to their apartment to eat & watch some football. 

I had SUCH an amazing weekend and I cannot wait to go back! 

I wish my coaxing Ty into moving to Boston for a year was working....I would totally do it in a heartbeat! 

Can't wait to see my best friend and her family again!!!
