They did have a great day yesterday though. While I was waiting to pick them up, Emily came down the steps with a HUGE smile on her face! Before she could even get in the truck she started telling me what a great day she'd had and going on about it....going to the gym for PE was a very important part of it as was going to the *BIG* playground for recess (in pre-k they go to a small playgound area)! Wyatt seemed to enjoy changing classes and having 3 teachers. Funny, going to the gym for PE has always been a favorite part of his day too.

Momma on the other hand....well, I feel like I am starting a new chapter of my own! I did something this morning that I've never done. I came home, after dropping the kids off, to an empty house and no job of my own to go to! I have to say, this is a really weird feeling. The house is so quiet! I am going to give the house a really good cleaning and (hopefully) enjoy the quiet. I have a lunch date with a dear friend this week and plan to get some things done that I have been putting off or have not taken/had the time to do.

Only one more week till school starts back up. The kids are ready, me not so much! They can't wait to see their friends again. They each got a letter from their teacher last week inviting us to "Meet the teacher" night this week.
It seems things are finally going to fall into some sort of "normalcy"(if that were even a word!) with Jeffs work! If you didn't know, he found out in late April the dealership he was working for was going to close their doors.....less than a week after they made the announcement! Needless to say it was a little nerve racking. To make a long story short, he didn't have any trouble finding a job, it has just taken a LOT of patience waiting for things to settle into place at the new job. Finally, instead of working nearly every Saturday, he is going to have more weekend time to spend with us. So we will be planning more camping trips. We had such a good time a couple of weeks ago, we can't wait to go again.
Ok, at the moment, that is our life in a nutshell! Hopefully I will have some good first day of school pictures to post next week. Untill then, here are a couple more that I have taken this summer. (the first one is with Freda, our friend across the street...her son had the go cart and the kids loved it when she would come pick them up for a ride around the neighborhood...we have yet to break the news to them that he sold the go cart!)

Getting really hot and sticky on the trail
I just thought this was a cool shot
"Digging" for fossils
We really needed a cold drink when we finished
Swimming in the lake
Running for the beach after seeing a SHARK! Actually it was a turtle, but it took some convincing for Wyatt to believe that! It was quite funny!!
Looking for the "shark"/turtle
You can see it's head in this shot...along the far left side towards the top of the picture
Checking out the "tracks"
And another....a baby armadillo!! The kids loved this one....Emily wanted soooo badly to pet it!!!
