Back To School
Tristan--8th grader--likes sports and girls--could give or take the rest--mostly give!
Grant--7th grader--very competitive, loves sports, wants to be the best at everything.
Devin--2nd grade--excited to be there, loves his teacher, girls are gross. . .
and with a t-shirt like this, need I say more??
Today was the day!! It seems like just yesterday that we were wrapping up school from last year!! It was 106 on my drive home from work tonight--too hot for back to school season!
They were excited and chatty this morning. Everyone was up early, no fussing to get dressed and eat breakfast. . .I wish I could bottle first day of school excitement to use later in the school year after the "new and exciting" part has worn off!!
The older boys both had assignments for social studies to find 10 important events that have occurred in their lives and the dates. Out came the scrapbooks and baby books. While they were searching things out, Jeremy and I started thumbing through them too. I was reminded that. . .I used to look young. .He used to have hair. .our kids were SOOOO much cuter than they are now. .the outside of my house was ATROCIOUS. .we have been camping at Canton Lake (our weekend destination) for the last 13 years. .it DOES snow here. .and that we have done a LOT of fishin'!!
They were excited to see that bus at 7:28 this morning. .and Cami didn't even cry this year. You may recall her pitiful face from last August!!
Football starts on Monday. I am glad to report that the weather station is calling for highs in the upper 80's to lower 90's starting on Sunday!! YAY!!
My husband and I have been married for 22 years and have been in the process of raising 4 rambunctious kids--3 boys and a girl--for a long time now. Two have successfully grown up. .And now we look like the American iconic family of 4! I work part time in health care and the rest of my time working with others-both in my home and in my community. We are active in our church and our local 4-H club. I have a lot of passions--but the ones you may find most on this blog are my family,my gardens, and my love for God! Hope you enjoy looking as much as I enjoy writing!
