Quads 1st day of 1st Grade

Look at these widdles…from the first day of preschool, to the first day of 1st grade! Unreal.

08 August 2014



I’ll admit… the first day of school this year was SOOO much easier than last year. We knew where to go, saw our friends, easy cheesy.




Well, it happened. When I told the kids to hold hands walking in, there was some backlash… then they just giggled and walked the entire way in with hands clasped. Mom smirked and chuckled to herself~ dreaming about her impending freedom! She could taste it…so close!




Proud to call Little home. It is like a little family. LOVE it.




And the best news eva! Our BFFs, the Tarrant twins, got in to Little!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!




Savi’s best girlfriends have Mrs. Caudill (Ethan’s K teacher) and Mrs. Baty (Ben’s K teacher)!




Time to drop off each quad in his/her classroom. Ben is first! Smile, snap, okay on to the next room.




Say cheese! snap, on to the next classroom…




Ethan, smile! snap, on to the next classroom…




Sav is the last room, ready to wreak havoc on her sweet teacher

Winking smile




I love these crazy 1st graders of mine. This is definitely a super fun age. My little mini-adults. Drew, Sav, Ethan and Ben.

Meet the Teacher~ 1st Grade!

Well, since we went all of summer without haircuts, it was time to trim these shaggy surfer dude mop heads. (Drew and Ben waiting patiently for their back-to-school haircuts).IMG_5677



Piling in the burb to meet our new teachers! Sav, Drew, Ben and Ethan. They are proudly holding their teacher survival kits full of Advil, sanitizer, stress-relief lotion, energy crystal light, energy nut packs, chocolate, etc…and hand-written notes from each kid.



(If it was legal to throw kiddie tranquilizers and teacher Valium in there, I most certainly would have~ teachers are heroes, I tell ya. HEROES.)



Ben was SOOOO super excited to have Mrs. Pilgrim! I think she is a perfect fit for our sensitive, sweet little Benny Boo.




Andrew and Mrs. Bush! Get ready for lots of laughs, Mrs. B. This kid is loads of quirky fun. I could write a book with the words that come out of his mouth.




My sweet, loving Ethan has Mrs. Lutsch and is probably the most excited little Steece out of the bunch! Get ready for lots of hugs and green shirts.




Sav and some of her favorite girlfriends are in Mrs. Frey’s class. God bless you, Mrs. F. I will be bringing you lots of coffee and treats on a regular basis.




It is weird/funny/interesting, to see all of the kiddos friends split up in different classes this year. There has been a lot of: “Ben, your BFF is in MY class!”…and “Drew, YOUR BFF is in MY class this year…” If you attend our school/grade, your child will always have one Steece in their class. Crazy.


We are super excited for a fun year with amazing teachers! God truly watches over us and matches each kid up perfectly. Join me in praying for our teachers and kids all across the nation for this upcoming school year! Teachers are angels on Earth.

Steece Quads 7th BDay Pool Party!

I cannot believe that my teenie tiny little preemies just turned SEVEN YEARS OLD!!!!

(Drew, Ethan, Sav, Ben)




Drew, Sav, Ethan, and Ben




Here are some pics of the party decorations. I loved personalizing the inner tubes: Drew, Est. 8-1-07 @ 3:47, etc.




Gotta love Pinterest! My BFF Liz helped me set everything up. Love her. SHE is a true LIFE SAVER. Smile




The Lemonade and Water stand…




If adults are required to endure a 7-year-old birthday party, outside at the end of summer, in Texas, with 40+ kids running around screaming~ some “21+ Punch” might make things a little more “enjoyable/bearable/worth while”

 Winking smile




Ready for our buddies to arrive! (Drew, Sav, Ethan, and Ben)




We pulled out the trusty old bounce house that we’ve had since the kids were babies! (Best purchase ever, btw). We have used it and lent it out SO many times. Funny how small the bounce house seems know that the kids are significantly bigger in size!




We had our pavement area set up with riding toys, hula hoops, sidewalk chalk, and our Step 2 roller coaster.




We hired an AWESOME balloon artist who goes by the name “Stretch” from Clowing Around!! Think Santa on a Harley Davidson motorcycle with a “Balloon Commander” shirt. He was hilarious and SO good with the kids. His balloons were incredible.




How cute is my widdle nephew




…and then of course, we had to put our pool to good use! (This day marked the one year anniversary that we moved into the house~ very cool to celebrate with friends and fam)




Ben and his BFF, Joe…aren’t they cute?!




When planning this pool party, the first thing I did was secure a lifeguard/pool monitor or I would have been stressed out to the max! Thanks Jessica!




The kids had an absolute blast!













Sav- healthy plate-o-food there, girlfriend…




The Steece men were in charge of grillin’ the dawgs…

Dan, Ed, and Joe




Granna chattin’ it up with Aunt Jess




My precious sis-in-law and her mini-me, Sawyer




My bro, Granna and Papa trying to stay cool in the shade




We lured the kiddies out of the pool for a group pic & cupcakes!




Sang Happy Birthday to the quadlings…




and then handed out cupcakes (that I begrudgingly did not bake myself…)




As the kiddos were leaving, they could pick out their very own beach ball to take home…




I know, I know…super cheese…but I like it.




Liz and Chris about to pass out from sheer exhaustion…these 2 were amazing and worked their tails off to help us get ready for this party.




The little princess opened up some of her presents and magically transformed into an arrow shootin’ Elsa meets Katniss/Merida.



Such a GREAT day! Thank you SO much to all who have blessed our lives, especially over these last 7/8 years.

And to all of you, bloggie friends, who have been following our story from afar~ just wanted to say thank you for all of your love.

Happy Birthday, babies. So proud to be your Mama.
