Eva's (2nd) first day of Preschool

Last Thursday was Eva's first day of preschool. She LOVED last year. I mean, really really LOVED it. Her teachers were so amazing and they adored her; it was obvious that she had hit teacher jackpot because they truly loved each other.
I was a little nervous that this year she wouldn't have the same connection and wouldn't be as excited about school. I was wrong. Yes! She is having a ball and wishes that school was every single day, just like last year. Here are a few pictures of her first day last year and this year. I cannot believe how much she has changed and grown. She is such a joy, I actually miss her even though she is only gone for 2.5 hours a few days a week. This little munchkin has a big piece of my heart...

Notice, once again, the size of that back-pack. All the kids have the same one provided by the school.

(Love this one- her cousin, Caleb, has his back-pack on upside down)

Update on the home front :)

Well, once again, I have neglected the blog. I am really the world's worst blogger, but I just can't bear to shut it down because it's such a nifty little place where I have documented a lot of what has gone on in the past couple of years.

So anyhow, I have also been doing some more projects around here. Here are a few pics of the latest :)


(Ikea 6x9 Erslev rug, white)

(I dyed it navy blue in the bath tub- trust me, it was not a fun process)

**there will also be another after because I am also painting it, because it has not been enough of a pain in the A** yet.

JEWELRY FRAME w/lace and hooks
(lovely heart print with pink frame, Goodwill)

 print removed, with the lace

(this all came out of my jewelry box- 
now there is actually room for the other stuff in there, which is finer chains, pendants and bracelets)

What can I say? I am a sucker for a cheap, fun, useful project, which all of these are :)


We're the Wells family. We currently consist of Michael (husband and daddy), Lauren (wife and mama), Evangeline (daughter and princess), and Samuel (son and prince). We live a pretty simple life loving the many blessings that God grants us each and every day.
Mike is a genius carpenter/contractor and works throughout neighboring counties. Lauren stays at home with Eva and Sam most of the time, but works a few days a week as a therapist.
More than anything else, we love being together as a family- trips to the gardens, swimming at Grammie and Papa's house, and bike rides & walks are probably our most frequent activities. We're surrounded by our family (siblings and parents); they all live within 30 minutes of us!
That's us in a nut shell.
We're thankful you dropped by our site!
