First Day of School!

It's our first day at Bennett Elementary School! The girls spent all last night and this morning agonizing about what to wear :)

I can't believe they are starting 2nd and 4th grade!!!!! (Am I really that old!?)

Labor Day/Back to School Bar-BQ!

The girls are starting a new school this year due to our move last spring. So we got together for a Labor Day/Back to School BBQ with a few other families from church who have kids who go to the same school. We had a great time with everyone and it was a great way to kick off the school year.

Last Day of Summer.......

We've had a great summer this year. It's been pretty low key. We spent lots of time at the pool, riding bikes, and just hangin' out. Here are a few of our favorite pics of the summer:

National Aquarium

Frying Pan Farm

Chillin' in the backyard

When you try to work from home......

This is what happens....

Joe worked from home this morning . (Well at least he tried:)
The kids were so excited about the novelty of actually getting to see him on a week day they just couldn't leave him alone despite my best efforts to give him some quiet time to work. At one time we had both the little kids screaming at the top of their lungs while running around the table Joe was using as his "work space," and the big girls arguing in the next room, and me trying to talk/yell above all of that to try and get everyone's attention so that I could tell them to take their roudiness/issues out side or to the basement to give daddy some quiet time.
Finally after 2 hours of wasted effort to keep the house quiet, I gave up, threw all the kids in the car and went to Target.
