First Day of School and Updates.

So I'm a little behind on updating my blog!

August 24, 2009:
First Day of School!

This was Brett's first year in school all day! He is in Kindergarden. His teacher is Mrs. Roy. She is so sweet and is just perfect for him. He had a rough few days, a few tears, he wanted to know when he could come home :( At recess he would sit with the teachers and talk to them instead of the kids. But that's Brett. He likes being friends with the teachers first, then by week 2 he makes friends. I'm happy to say, no more tears!

Sean started 1stGrade this year. He loves school. His teacher is Mrs. Linenberger. She actually lives one block over from us. He will be excited when he visits her doorstep this Halloween. She is great for Sean. She seems to work the First Graders as if they are 2nd or 3rd graders, but that's great for my school loving Sean. (Who came home with a check-minus and was in tears over it! A check-minus!)

Brandon started his first year in Middle School. I can't believe it. He is playing football this year and was dressed in his athletic clothes. He is in 7th grade this year. As of today, he loves it. Especially football. We sat through a scrimmage, in the rain this past Monday. He was so cute when he got the ball and took off down the field. I was a very proud mama.

Kaila is a 10th grader this year. My big Sophmore! Where has the time gone? I didn't get a picture of her before she left for school, so I chose one of my favorite pictures of her. Smiling and goofing off with a friend. That is her. A 10th grader, but still a goofy little kid inside, who just wants to enjoy life. She and her friends have decided to try to join as many "clubs" at school as possible. You'll never guess what club she joined. Are you ready for this.....DODGEBALL CLUB! Among other things she is in National Charity League, Inc with me, then at school, Dodgeball club, Iteract Club, Student Council and I think next on her list is Ping-Pong club and Circle of Friends.

It's going to be an interesting year!

Medieval Times

August 2009: So my Dad calls me up one day and says "Do you want to go to Medieval Times?" They were having a special that with the purchase of an adult ticket, a kid would get in free. I bought our tickets and off we went! (Michael had been complaining saying he was not going to wear the hat they gave us, but as you can tell from the pictures, he did! It was a fun "Back to School" event for the kids. We don't go any where for our Summer Break so they were excited. The food was really good and the entertainment....well let's just say it was entertaining.
