Busy Times!

I know, not really a good excuse...but that's all I've got!  We really have had a lot going on in the last few weeks though!  Let's see.....the kids went to a birthday party, we've had lots of school stuff going on, Emily has had a dance performance, the kids and I made a trip south to see Mom and Dad and Brandie got engaged!!! (OK, well maybe I shouldn't claim that last thing as an excuse for not blogging, but in my defense we have been dress hunting.)  That's just a bit of what we've been up too.  We have that much and more coming up in the next few weeks!
So the birthday party the kids went to was at Build A Bear.  They had such a great time!  Emily picked a kitty to stuff and then dressed her in a ballerina outfit....very appropriate!  Wyatt stuffed a dog and found a NASCAR outfit....he was thrilled!   

School has been good for both kids so far.  We haven't had any absences yet (knock on wood!).  Wyatt is signed up to do safety patrol.  They do six week rotations and he can't wait till his turn comes around.  Emily is on the student council this year.  They had their planning meeting last week to discuss the projects they will be working on this year.  Between that and dance, she is going to be one busy little girl this year!  Along with her tap and ballet, she added a jazz class to her schedule.  She is also in a performance class on Wednesday afternoons.  In that class they are learning short routines that can be performed on fairly short notice.  She had one such performance a couple of weeks ago and has another next week.  They will then spend November learning a new set of dances to do for Christmas performances in and around the community.  She is really enjoying her dance!  As if she doesn't keep us busy enough, Wyatt will start basketball in about a month.
We've had lots and lots of rain to deal with in the last few weeks!  The temps have cooled off nicely too, but with all the rain, the kids have been stuck inside more than they like to be.  

In the next few weeks we have the fall carnival at school, the kick off for the canned food drive for student council, 2 planned camping trips, Jeff's birthday and Wyatt is going to the NASCAR race with Sissy (shhhh, he doesn't know about this!!)
