Blake went to his first soccer practise. Keith is now his coach. Malynda was in Albany for their first practise so pictures of her will come later.

first day of school

I can't tell for sure but I think that Blake is really excited for school. Here are a couple of pictures.

my kiddies

Malynda Sue is our oldest. She shares her birthday with her Aunt Jamie. She is named after my sisters Mackenzie, Stacy Lynne, and Keith's middle name and his father Lyn, my best friends Linda, Malessa, and Cami Sue. We chose the spelling of her name to incorporate everyone.
Lawrence Blake is our middle child. He is named after Keith's grandfathers Lawrence and Keeton Blake. He shares his birthday with his cousin Keeton who is also named after Keeton Blake. The man they are named after was born in January and these boys in July.
The baby is Ella Marie. She is named after My great great grandmothers Marie Robinson (whom I am named after) and Ella (a Trunnell descendant). After she was born we found out that Keith's great great grandmother was also an Ella. We decided she is named after her as well.
We wanted to keep their names within the family. It is important to us to honor our ancestors.

The Lobdell Family

Our family consists of Keith, Jill, Malynda Sue, Lawrence Blake, and Ella Marie. Keith is an editor of the Whitehall Times. Jill is going to school and taking care of the kiddies. Today Malynda and Blake started school. Malynda is in 2nd grade with Ms. Kathy Bedore. Blake is beginning Kindergarten with Mrs. July Bisselle. He decided that he is going to be known as Lawrence in school. When they got to school Blake looked like a gazelle going up the stairs.

I get to play with Ella at home until her nap time. That is when the house work and homework get completed. We are also in the process of buying our first home.
