So we have to say good-bye to the summer:(





There are many things I'm going to miss about the summer, like sleeping in, swimming, family coming to visit, and the sound of blood curdling screams coming from my kids, as they try to kill each other. I've really enjoyed this summer. I'm not sure I want it to end. Sure I'm looking forward to only having Jackson home, and catching up on cleaning, and doctors appointments (well pretty much catching up on everything) but this summer has been soooo relaxed and so enjoyable.

Both the kids got calls from their new teachers and "meet the teacher night" is on Thursday. What an exciting time as a kid, finding out who your teach is and seeing what friends will be in your class.

Tre is almost all registered for school here. -for those of you who don't know, Tre, my nephew is living with us and going to school here. It's actually been really great having him here. I thing the honeymoon is a little over and he's more used to us and more homesick, because things are getting a little less happy smilie. I love him and I feel so blessed in so many ways, that he is here and staying for awhile. I'm so thankful that by some miracle he made it on the plane and got here.

This is all so new and different to him, I hope and pray he will be open to new experiences and friends and really start to feel like this could be his home. I have to say that I have the most amazing and loving husband in the world. I thank God for him everyday in my prayers. I'm thankful he wanted tre to come and that he is so protective and supportive of me.

Wow is Tre the giant in the first picture? Wow, that kid is tall! Thanks for bringing him in. I don't know him or his circumstances but I know ours and how grateful I am for the help we've received this year. Our boys spent 9 weeks in Houston and now I'm here with them living with grandparents because of health reasons. Knowing that loving people are caring for my children makes all the difference in the world. We'll be praying that Tre can make the adjustment!

i was a little younger than tre when i moved. thought it was the end of my small world :) if he gives it a shot, he may find it isn't the worst thing in the world but instead a blessing in disguise and a new place to call home. so thankful i cried my eyes all the way to wa so many years ago. :)

I thought that was jeremy doing a back flip when his pants started falling off, so naturally I zoomed in only to find it wasn't Jeremy and pants were not falling off. Bummer...
