Well I just looked at my last blog post...summer wasn't even over yet. As you can tell from the above picture...the kids started school (4th and 5th grade...and me working in the office) and are almost done with the first quarter. I started this family blog back in 2007. I started strong and as a way to keep family and friends updated on our happenings. Of course now Facebook pretty much takes care of it all. But I am REALLY bad at printing pictures and totally failed on my kids baby books...so the blog has to keep going...even if I am only posting so little. So this is my attempt to catch back up a bit and share just a few things.
Addison turned 11 back on September 2nd. She talked me into another big party. I wish she could have invited 10 more girls from her grade but I had to limit it at least a little. We took the girls rollerskating and they had so much fun. Then it was back to the house for another sleepover party and I told her...its the last big one!
Addison on her birthday. Can she possibly look any older???
We spent labor day weekend at the ozarks like we do every year. It didn't disappoint. It was so nice to have one last summer weekend and we soaked it all in.
A few weeks ago Bob and I drove up to Chicago for the quickest trip ever for my 20 year HS reunion. I was glad I went but mostly glad to spend it with my amazing friends in his pic. We were great friends then and we are even better friends now. I don't know what I would do without them...especially at the reunion. I totally would not have gone if they weren't all there!!!
Lucas just finished fall ball with the Bears. It was a great season. He made some great plays with tons of action in the field (now that pitching is a bit better). He starts off-season training in a few weeks. I don't know what he would do if he had to wait till Spring!!!
Addison is in his first season as a cheerleader! I didn't think this was going to be her kind of activity but she is really showing us that she loves it. It sure is different going to a game and watching your kid cheer...and not play the sport on the field...but it's fun.
I'm adjusting to my new job and trying to juggle everything. It sure is different working at a school and being around kids...but I really love it. I need to take in this year...its the only year I'll be working there with both my kids there. Wow.
