Life as we know it...

Ok, I have no idea where September has gone. It seems like it was just Labor Day and the beginning of the month. To say its been a busy month, is an understatement! I feel like I need a vacation from my life right about know.

Happy First Day of School!
What a big girl!
First day of 3rd Grade!
First Day of First Grade!!

School started and I'm finding it a little hard to believe that I have a 3rd grader, a 1st grader and that my baby is in pre-school! We have GREAT teachers and all 3 girls are doing wonderfully. Teagan loves having "real" homework and Zoe is a champ at getting her homework done each night. Harper loves school and thinks she is such a big girl. I have to remind myself that it takes about a month for the girls to adjust to school schedules, so we have some crabby, whiny, tired girls by the end of the week. It doesn't help that I've been tired and crabby too!

Henna at the Fair. Don't look at my bad fingernails!

At the Puyallup Fair with friends!

This past Saturday, I took the big girls to the Puyallup Fair. Let me tell you, it was CRAZY! It was the last weekend of the fair, so it was really crowded and the kids were, well, kids! We did have fun riding a few rides, eating Krusti Pups and scones. It was a long but GOOD day! Next year, we'll go during the week!! Or not at all!

Playing school at our Garage Sale - Zoe was a great teacher!

We had 2 different garage sales, 2 weeks in a row! We got rid of a bunch of stuff and had a lot of fun! The little girls had fun playing school and being cute trying to sell things to people!

Canned Peaches!

Fresh baked French Bread!

I had a great day at home on Friday - I watch my little buddies, Reed and Payton those days and also had my niece, so it was a house full of little kids!! I also baked French Bread, zucchini bread, made granola and baked potato soup for dinner.

My buddy, Reed! We hang out on Thursday's and Friday's!

This is Reed. He comes and hangs out with me on Thursday's and Friday's and we just love him around here. He is an awesome baby and its a lot of fun having him around. His mom was Zoe and Teagan's kindergarten teacher and we are crossing our fingers NOW that Harper gets to spend a year with Mrs. Nash because she is amazing! I feel so privileged!!
Ok, I better get to bed - another busy week ahead and if you're lucky - another blog post!!

Summer fun

Wow - I cannot believe that summer is winding down and school is starting on Wednesday! I had been hoping for a low-key, laid back summer with lots of down time at home - instead it seems as if summer just flew by in a whirlwind!

We spent a week at my grandparents with aunts, uncles, cousins and lots of FUN! Zoe and Teagan went to several VBS programs and spent several days with Grandma June and Grandpa Doug. Duffy and I spent a few days in Bellingham and it was great to remember all our fun times back in college. We've enjoyed time with great friends, camping with family, lots of time with cousins and FUN, FUN, FUN!

The big news is that Jordan, Bethany and Bella moved back to Sequim!!! They have been living with my parents since June and are anxiously waiting to move into their own place. It has been so much fun having the cousins together and getting to spend time with my brother and his family. Bella and Harper will be in pre-school together this year and boy, the teachers are in for a surprise! HAHA! Bella and Harper are a riot together and keep everyone entertained! I'm so excited that they get to grow up together.

We have come to realize that we are out-growing our house! With 3 growing girls, a dog, and us, we just don't fit in our house. We would like something with a little bit more outside room and a bit more breathing room inside. We are talking about putting our house on the market later this month and seeing what happens. I'm crossing my fingers that we can have a successful sale and find something that makes everyone happy.

Ok, off to bed - morning comes earlier than I want it to and with school starting, I better get back in the habit of busy, crazy mornings!
Fun at the park!
Sequim's very FIRST Hot Air Balloon Festival!
Ah, the joys of summer.
Bella and Harper - great lunch dates!
Makes my heart happy.
My joy!
