Tuley Children

My good friend and photographer, Tiffany Fetter, took these pictures of the kids recently. The purpose of these pictures was to get Lissie's 3mos. and John David's 2 yr., and try to get one of all 3, which is why there aren't a whole lot of Kaylinn...she'll get her 4 yr. pics. taken soon. These are just a few.

First Day of School

The kids had their first day of school the beginning of September, and they are both loving it! Both Kaylinn and John David are blessed to have such wonderful and loving teachers, and I am blessed to have no tears and a few hours with just one child.

Big boy...his backpack is as big as he is!

Kaylinn was super excited to wear a headband.

Sibling love!!!

Lissie's excited to spend some time as an only child.

Kaylinn's Prayer

Kaylinn prayed over our meal last night, and it went a little something like this, "Dear God, thank you for everything. Thank you for this food that I do not like, but I will try a bite because I have to. If I don't like it, it's okay, but I just have to try it. Thank you for Jesus. Precious name we pray, Amen." It took all David and had to not bust out laughing.

Also, John David's been saying "Cheeto" when he is mad at someone; almost as though he's calling someone a bad name. I was watching he and Kaylinn go back and forth over a shovel outside...the "argument" ended when he looked at her mean and said "CHEETO!" like it was the worst thing he could call her...guess we won't be giving him that nickname!

John David is not a big talker so I've been trying to get him to say people's names as well as his own. He's always called Kaylinn "KK," which we all do. He's started calling Lissie "Hi-see." He calls his teacher Mrs. Rhodes, "Whodes." Then I asked John David what his name was and without hesitation replied "Cheeto" now I have a nickname for him! He laughs every time I call him by his new name.
