First Day School Blues ~ Nah!

The kids all started school today. Emily the BIG 8th grader, Hannah is starting middle school in 6th and Benjamin is going into 1st. When did they all get so grown up?

It really wasn't a hard day - Hannah didn't seem anxious or nervous at all. She was my big worry - starting a new school. She did miss the bus home though and that's in part to her wonderful BIG sister. Who watched her get in the wrong line and then watched the bus leave with Hannah not on it! Good thing Em has a cell phone to call us and let us know Hannah wasn't on the bus! Ugh!!!

Benjamin wanted us to take him to school. He was so funny once we got there and saw all his little friends - his cute little grin!

Best thing about Emily's day? Getting her oboe back

Best thing about Hannah's day? Lunch

Benjamin's day? Recess

Placid Lake Fun

Tammy emailed me in the morning what were our plans for the day. I told her I may take the kids to Splash and what did she have plan? She said they were going back up to Placid Lake where they spent yesterday at a friends cabin with her parents boat. Did we want to go too? I could think of 50 reasons not to go, things I could do around here and such but what the heck summer is almost over and I have Fridays off at my new job now we should take advantage of the weather! We had to be back in town by 6 for the VBS the kids were attending all week but a few hours at the lake is better than a few hours not, right?? It took a little over an hour to get there but we had almost 4 hours to play! Emily opted out of coming and Dan had a meeting at 4 so he did not come either. Hannah, Benjamin and I had a blast! Most of the time was spent on the boat and tubing around on Mable - a huge tube of sort. Benjamin had so much fun! He kept saying it was the best day of his life! Thanks for the invite Bodlovics!

My Little Sharp Shooter

Benjamin and I went and hung out with Angi & Nathan, Heather & Bridger and Rhonda the other night at Ang's for some dinner and drinks. Nathan has a BB gun and wanted to show the boys how to shoot it. Boy did Benjamin have a blast. First of all Nathan is quite the sportsman and taught the boys gun safety and how to shoot it. Benjamin loved it. He never hit his target so didn't think he was too good but did great for his first time!
