Happy BDay, Dad

We went to Las Vegas, last weekend for about 24 hours. It was my FIL's birthday. We had a great time, but my SIL wasn't able to be there with her girls. My BIL represented the family :). They live in FL and it was too long a trip for just the weekend when they have school aged kiddos. Anyway, here are some pictures from the party. Happy Birthday, Dad!

My handsome hubby, my FIL and my BIL- Some handsome hunks!

First Day of School

Since this is my first year back in first grade and my first year at a new school and my first year full-time in 9 years, I am feeling a bit overwhelmed!!! I just finished my fourth day of teaching and I am wiped out! I think I'm going to love it, again, as soon as I get back into the swing of things.
But, more exciting is that my baby is in middle school. We planned on me being part-time until she was in 6th grade and here we are! I can't believe how grown up my kids are. Jake is in 8th grade and will go to high school next year! My big boys are BIG. Graduated from college and still in school-Rob and Tay. How did we get here so quickly? Life is good and we are blessed!
Hope you're all getting used to your new routines!

Happy Friday

Happy Friday! Things are coming along. We are almost ready for the school year to start. It's bittersweet. I love the easy schedule and the "plenty of time together" way of the warm summer days. But, I do love school days, autumn weather and traditions, and teaching. So, since we don't have a choice, we will embrace the start of another school year :)
