Back to School.....

It's that time of year again...Back to School!!!!!
It is my favorite time of year since, my house tends to stay a little cleaner without the boys home all day to terrorize it. :) Andrew is off to 5th grade this year, which for us means Outdoor Education and what I'm sure will be a long couple of months while he learns to play the recorder. Ethan and Alex started 3rd grade and as always are my little social butterflies. I love taking the first day of school picture, it reminds me so much of my mom taking my picture every year when I was a kid. Of course, I do not cry every year. Talk to me next year when the first day of school picture will include all my kids! It's hard for me to imagine that Taryn will be in Kindergarten next fall. What will I do with all my free time?? Hopefully learn to relax a little! :)

Do you all remember school supply shopping? Picking out the cool folders and pencils and a new backpack for the year? Now I understand why my parents didn't want to take me. It is apparerntly a 5 hour process to pick out 8 things.

I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

Back from Adventures....

We had the best weekend!!! We returned yesterday from spending the weekend at AdventureLand in Des Moines. The boys thought it was awesome and we couldn't have asked for better weather! We got to Laura and Adam's on Saturday and the boys played football with Adam, and we grilled out. On Sunday we were off to AdventureLand and had a great time! Alex did ride a roller coaster, which he thought was pretty cool.

Taryn also had a good time in Edgar with Aunt Rachael and Abbi. They played and went to the Hasting Museum, where Taryn thought the Kool-Aid exhibit was the best! Hope you all had a great weekend!

A weekend of Adventures...

This weekend everyone in our family is off on another weekend of traveling. Taryn left this morning to go spend the weekend with Aunt Rachael, (future) Uncle Mick, and Abbi in Edgar, NE. If you know where that is at you are a true Nebraskan...

Dave and I and the boys are off to AdventureLand in Des Moines. We are staying with my best friend Laura and her boyfriend Adam. I am so excited to see her! I'll post pictures when we come back!
