Well, that time is finally here! School has begun... and we have a 1st-grader! Lexi began 1st grade on Thurs. Aug. 22 at Ft. Island Primary School. Her teacher this year is Miss Goldstein. She is still adjusting to the whole 'lunch-at-school' thing and also getting used to being gone from 8:30 unitl after 4pm EVERY WEEKDAY! I suppose it will take a few weeks for her to adjust, but then hopefully she will love it! Since none of her friends from last year ended up in her class this year, she is getting to know a lot of new friends. She even gets to board the bus with a close friend from church 2-3 days per week (she comes to our house in the morning and rides the bus with Lexi). Jill starts her daily Pre-K routine in just 1 short week (after Labor Day) and we shall see how that goes... Good Luck Miss Emily with the crew you have this year!
This past Spring, I entered a Facebook Contest with Jen Cluts Photography for a free photo shoot. For those of you who may not know, Jen (Bollenbacher) Cluts went to my high school along with her older sisters and she actually graduated with my brother, Ben Ginter. Well, I liked and shared her page and got entered in the contest and... I WON! She notified me of my free 1-hour summer session and we started to look at dates. She didn't move too far from home, so that meant making a 3-hour drive to home-sweet-Paulding county for the outdoor shoot. We originally agreed on June 29 for the shoot, but shockingly it rained and we were forced to reschedule. Since our July was crazy, we finally set a new date of August 10. No rain and gorgeous weather led to the perfect evening for some great shots. I am so happy with the results and I would recommend for ANYONE to check out Jen's work. Enjoy the pictures!
We met at the University of Toledo while completing our pharmacy degrees. We got married on June 18, 2005 and shortly after that adopted Banky (our puggle) in July. Alexa joined our family on November 22, 2006 just one day before Thanksgiving. Then Jillian arrived on April 28, 2009. Finally, Allison came on January 2, 2012. We all thought she would be a December baby, but she had other thoughts! Our 3 girls are wonderful and keep us on our toes!
