Please don't get me wrong, I would not change the fact that we've coached for anything. We have made some lifelong friends with our athletes. We love them like they were our own kids. But at this stage in our life, this is what matters....more than the game of basektball.

Day 2 was much better - we made friends, people talked to us, etc, etc. My boys are shocked that the kids here don't know who Michael Jordan is....the are HUGE fans....Rielyn doesn't think all the boys are stupid anymore so its progress. My day is still long and I am completely pooped when i get home...Fell asleep yesterday filling out paperwork for the kiddos with my head on the table. David is working late getting ready for renewal season....I can handle 2-3 months of late nights as opposed to 9 months of it...so a fair trade off I guess. SO READY FOR COOLER WEATHER!

Photos will come later....promise...just haven't had time to upload them. They were so excited for school to start...for the most part. Keldyn said on Saturday....I love school! At that point I thought he had been abducted by aliens but he hadn't ... it was really him :) We had an ok first day....one loved it...the other said all the boys in her class were stupid and one was ready to pretend like he was dead today so that he wouldn't have to go. Praying today was better for them. My day was LONG....I have 5 classes before lunch and then 2 after, so my morning is jam packed and the afternoon goes by fast, so I guess that's good. We were all pooped though. David brought home pizza for dinner so that made the unhappy campers a bit more cheerful. Found a quote today that I liked....Success can be defined by 3 words... AND THEN SOME. Really felt like this applies to multiple aspects of my life, as a Christian, as a mom, as a wife, as a teacher, etc. Do you give the AND THEN SOME?? Sometimes its the bare minimum...gunna try to be an AND THEN SOME kinda girl!

Movie Night - this is how she spent over 1/2 of the movie and the car ride home....guess we all need a good rest every once in a while.
Water gun war - playing around with a nurf water gun and this is what happens. The kids were swimming/playing at the neighbors house and our neighbor and Bryson came running back to the house with this....NO FEAR though - we butterflied him right up...no ER for us :)
Spider man bit the dust after this....He was a Christmas or birthday gift from Aunt Meredith several years ago, I am surprised he has lasted this long....they had a blast though while he did.....LOVE the expressions on their faces and their body language!
Is she sassy or what???? There are days when I think who's kid is this??? But then I am reminded....she's mine. I know exactly where she gets it from...me...my deep secret....I love fashion....that is probably my secret dream job.....I know I know....stop laughing already becasue you'd never know by the way I dress that I like fashion....but I do...so that's where she gets it
