First Day of School

After a fun summer of swim team, camps, HHI, St. Augustine, and plenty of quality time with family and friends, Ella and Jack started school on August 24th.  Ella is off to 6th grade—a middle schooler!  Jack is a big 4th grader this year.  We’ll have two years of two different schools on two different schedules, but we’re exctied for what’s in store for each of them this year.  Ella and Jack are both excellent students—one might be a little more organized than the other…I’m not naming names—but we know it’s going to be another great year for both of them.  #goella #gojack

Williams Family Portraits

There were two new additions to the Williams family tree in 2015, so it was time to update the Williams group photo.  Considering our last group photo was taken back in 2011 when Emilee was just a babe, it was probably long overdue anyways.  Hopefully we don’t wait until Harper and Hudson are 4 before taking our next one!

Jack’s Birthday in St. Augustine

We celebrated Jack’s 10th birthday with family in St. Augustine Beach.  All of the Williams cousins were there—even the new littles, Harper and Hudson—along with Aunt Jacqui and Uncle Randy, Aunt Chrissy and Uncle Chris, and Nana and PopPop.  It was a fun weekend of beach, pool, tennis, and more Publix birthday cake.  We even got in a birthday dinner at The Conch House with Nana and PopPop.  I love this summer birthday tradition!

Jack’s 10th Birthday Party

Jack’s 10th birthday party was so totally Jack.  Seven of his best friends (plus sister Ella), an indoor field (perfect for an August birthday), and two straight hours of soccer, football, and dodgeball.  And then, of course, top it off with some FC Barcelona Publix cake.  And that’s what you would call the perfect celebration of his 10th birthday for our sports-loving boy.
