We've had a fun busy month of August with us squeezing as much as we could before SCHOOL!

We were able to spend time with friends at TopGolf on a Sat. morning.  The boys still love going there so much and now they love it even more cause of the doughnut holes you can fill yourself with 3 different sauces.  Not good!
We later helped host a farewell party for the Vasudevans that evening.

The next day we were able to rent a pontoon boat on Lake Travis - so long since we'd been out on the lake and Joshua and Noah's first time on a boat!  They were amazed at the speed of the boat and loved swimming in the lake.  I was a little nervous since I didn't know how to swim and couldn't help much with the boys in the water.  The boys actually helped push me along in the water cause I was a slow swimmer.  They tried to "save" me many times!

The next weekend we traveled to Dallas for Amit's wedding.  We were able to spend time with family after the wedding and before the reception.  Joshua and Noah had a great time with Christian - he loves to jump and the boys jumped with him the entire weekend!
We stayed outside the ballroom during the wedding since the kids were running around.  The reception in the evening was beautiful.  We got a kick out of the fact that they placed the Malayalees at one table - all 6 of us!

The next weekend we had a blast at Hyatt Los Pines in Bastrop.  Sunil, Julie, and Christian also joined us along with a couple of other families.  Very hot that weekend but the water park area was perfect for the kids with a little sand area as well.  Joshua was able to ride the slide and they both loved the lazy river.  We also did the tractor ride later and pizza and a surprise birthday cake for Arya and me.  Then smores and a late night movie that Joshua was too tired to watch.  We loved our stay here!

Then on Tue, Aug. 25 Joshua started kindergarten.  I've been talking about this day for years - anticipating it and thinking it was so far off.    I didn't sleep at all the night before - we all went to the school with us leaving the house around 7:00.  Joshua looked so cute sitting at his desk and in that moment he looked so grown up and at the same time looked so little.  How did my little baby grow up so much so fast?  I kissed him and hugged him so many times before we left and before Noah decided he was going to try to sit down and join the class too.  I was proud that I didn't cry and of course Joshua has been going to preschool for years so he didn't cry either.

He had a great first week of school and I think he likes it and is making a lot of friends.  I love Friday nights because we don't have to get up at 6 am the next morning!
