After J's second day of school, she reported "I LOVE Middle School!"
L was a bit less enthusiastic. She likes her teacher a lot, but she has moaned (several times) that "3rd Grade goes really slow, MUCH slower than 2nd Grade!"
A little bit of a back ache on the Thursday before school, turned into a major disability by the afternoon of the first day of school for me. I ended up spending 3 mornings at the Chiropractor's last week. I am finally feeling *mostly* better, but still trying to avoid strenuous activity. I did get a lot of studying done, while I was lying around on ice packs or heating pads. My brain feels full now, and by this time next week, my exams will be over!
Saturday was lovely...hot and sunny. We had friends over to play in the pool, and JP cooked a brisket overnight for dinner that evening. It was great fun!
|The kids are ALWAYS starving after playing in the pool!|
|Enjoying "Let It Go"...or not!|
Today we watched about 5 hours of home video, while recording them to DVDs. We got to see J's and L's births, and lots of cute (and not so cute) stuff in between.
Tomorrow it is back to school and work for everyone, as well as soccer practice. No more rest for the weary!
