Jane Louis Hiscox

My littlest niece is here! 




Katie took care of Jane's penguin until we got to her:


We are so happy Aunt Grace and baby Jane are healthy and resting at home!


Wrapping it Up

Since BJ's Facebook post in March, many of our family and friends have known about his new job and our eventual move to Atlanta. However, it hasn't been 100% real until now, as I write from our temporary home at the Farm with Gamma and Boppy! Our first outing was to Echo Buff and Boppy let Katie use his binoculars:

 

In fact, Katie loves Boppy so much she does an impression of  him I have yet to capture really well on camera, this is the best I have though:

Wonderful movers came and packed our home on Swaying Pine and put our things in storage until our home in Atlanta is ready.


In preparation we got new twin beds for the kids:

 

 

"Proud papa moment. Since I've been gone so much, Ray has started reading Katie bedtime stories. Tonight is an adventure with Tinkerbell. I love how he holds it so she can see the pictures. He is an incredible big brother" -BJ


BJ does a great job of making sure we all get time to be with him.

Hanging out until dark:





Katie and Ray's YouTube

The best part about having Ray and Katie around for the school year is I get to see all their fun and hilarious ideas get played out. I find myself pulling out my camera to catch the things they do. Here are some of my favorite videos from the last few weeks.

They love the trampoline! This is a game they play where one of them lays down and the other pretends to trip and fall down!

School Start

Yesterday we ended our summer earlier than usual and started school!


Not before we had some more fun at the farm and cut Boppy's hair:


Katie and Lindsay playing dolls and ponies:


Sam and Ray messing around...Frank was nearby. The three of them are best friends! Ray even got to spend a week at their home in Omaha: 


This is how he came home, Aunt Em cut his hair:


Meanwhile, Katie loved the extra attention and let me do her hair:


Her and BJ are have been espically close, so when Delta got shut down and he had an extra day at home, she snuggled, and snuggled, and snuggled with him:





In the end, Katie blossomed under the limelight:


got extra time with her friends and their kitten:


but truly missed her "Ray-Ray" and was happy to have him back. 


We spent a morning at Aunt Grace's helping with freezer meals: 


Hannah was at school, but Caleb loved hanging out with Ray and Katie loved having all Hannah's toys to herself.


Still loving our truck, this was taken the day we bought it, we got a custom calendar in the mail just in time to keep track of all the crazy moving dates! 


My little Princess:





She did my hair!


My little man:




He even kept cool when the gun miss fired:
