5th grade for Madison. I can't believe it. She was not that thrilled to be going back to school. She would sleep in every day till noon if I'd let her. Guess she will have to wait till next summer for that. She did come home excited after her first day...she got a teacher who is new and isn't as strict with the homework. Madison's happy.
2nd grade for Harlee. She unlike Madison was ready and willing to be going back to school. She was up bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning. Even during the summer she never slept in...that wasn't always a good thing. She loves school!

Gracee is still home, although she would love to be going to school with the girls. She asked for them all day today so we took a little trip to the park and that seemed to help her forget them for a short time. She was so happy to see them when they got home. I know it won't be long before she will be joining them.

Cave Falls

One last day of fun before the grind of school. We decided to vistit Cave Falls and enjoy the beauty surrounding us. We had a great time.

Fun in the Sun!

The kids have had so much fun this summer hanging out at the lake with friends and family. I will say that the water is a bit colder than those Arizona lakes, but they don't seem to mind a goose bump to two.

Home Grown

It has been so fun growing my own garden. The girls love to pick and eat fresh strawberries every day. My sqwash and cantaloupe are growing like crazy. It is actually somewhat theraputic gardening. I will be anxious to try some other variations next spring.
