What we've been up to

Life has been crazy lately. (don't I always say that?) I thought that I should update this blog, since it has been sorely neglected this summer.

Alexandra is really growing up. *sigh* I'm not really ready for it, but there is no stopping it. She got her first set of contacts this past week. She is so excited about it. It seems strange to see her without her glasses. I am so impressed with how well she is doing - putting them in and taking them out.
She is at 7th grade orientation camp today! 7th grade - really? She is definitely ready to go back to school. This year, she will be playing the flute and participating in color guard.

Noah and Sophia are excited to go back to school, as well. We have "meet the teacher" next week and are hoping that they get the teachers we want. Backpacks, lunch boxes and school supplies have been purchased (all on sale, of course!).

Noah will be 10 on the first day of school. We have been telling him that going to school is his present. haha! Anyway, he is really looking forward to becoming a Weeblo in Cub Scouts. We went to the scout shop and got his book, yesterday. He has been devouring it! It is so fun to see his excitement! Unfortunately, his best friend is moving, which will leave him as the only Weeblo in our troop. I think he will still enjoy it. He has a good leader.

I have been super busy this summer. We have had a Mom's Day Out program running along with some other daycare. Another year of teaching preschool begins after Labor Day. I also have a new calling in our ward- Young Women's President. Yikes!
I am trying to get really organized before the school year begins.

Well, that is all for now. I need to get some pictures uploaded! Hopefully, I will have a few minutes sometime this week to do that. :)
