August Catchup

August has flown by, and I’ve fallen behind posting everything that’s gone on.

In the first week: Anne began a ballet/tap combo class. She absolutely LOVES it. We originally planned for her to just take classes for one month, but she is enjoying it so much we’re going to let her keep at it.

In the second week: I started back at GCS. Gaba & Papa and Laura both babysat Anne and Joel all week while I sat through inservice. THANK YOU!!!

In the third week: Anne started first grade! I don’t even know what to say about this. She’s so, so, so big. How did this happen so quickly?

That Friday we took the kids to the Mesquite Rodeo. They had an awesome time. We hung out with friends, ate bbq sandwiches and cotton candy, and had lots of fun. What was the kids’ favorite part of the night? The races, bull rides, tricks? Nope, it was the face painting!

Last week: Joel swallowed a penny Saturday morning. We had to check and make sure it successfully passed. Yuck!!!!!

Tonight: We try to have family fun night once a week, this was our only time for the month of August. Once is better than none though. We’ll get better once we get back in a routine. Tonight the recipe card talked about how you can’t take words back once you speak them.

In the past 3 weeks, we’ve had 2 nights at home. We’ve been going, going, going! It’s been exhausting, and I’m so grateful that my husband is my best friend and the perfect teammate. I love you, JJ!
