First day of 4th grade and 1st grade




Check out Alex looking at his brother!



Yeah! The kids are back to school! One of my kids was up at 6:30am, dressed and ready for school this morning. Can you guess which one? School does start earlier this year, but not quite that early.

We've had a very short(the kids used ALL the snow days the last school year so the school year seemed to drag on), very cool summer, with only 3 days above 90 degrees this year. Of course the 1st day of school had to be sweltering hot! Alex's classroom has AC, so it wasn't a bother to him, and the other two are used to warm weather as I rarely(only 2 days so far this year) turn on our AC. They all had a pretty good 1st day of school and they like their teachers!

August

Its hard to believe that it is August already. The summer really flew by for us...it seems like the kids just got out of school, and now we are already getting things ready for the new school year. We've purchased new backpacks, packed up the school supplies, and we're trying to get the kids to bed a little earlier each night. This year school starts about 20 minutes early than last year...I know we're going to struggle. My kids are not morning people...they take after their mom in that way. They can stay up till midnight no problem, but getting dressed, eating breakfast, and being ready for school by 8am, now that's impossible!

Alex turned 6 in July! He had a spider-man cake with sparkler candles. They wouldn't blow out..so Drew and Faye helped.




Of course on his actual birthday, we did not have power so he had a store bought cake for the 1st time ever and we celebrated in the dark!
