Back to School...

It's hard to believe, but I am now the parent of a child in middle school, I know it's scary! I think I was more nervous than Bailee was for her first day in a big new school. It is such a change, 8 classes with 8 teachers, lockers, changing at school into P.E. clothes, Ahhh! All of these things were going through my head the night before school started, I just wanted to hold her back one more year because I didn't think she was ready, Sean had to reassure me that we have all been through it and survived and that Bailee would be just fine. She did make it through her first day with only one major mishap, losing her locker with all of her stuff locked in it the whole day and part of the next day, but other than that she was pretty happy with middle school!

Miles had his first day of First grade and loves his new teacher, the only thing that is hard for him is getting up early again! He loves to sleep in, and is not very happy in the morning if he has to get up early. The first day hit him hard, he came home had a snack and was watching tv on the floor and at about 530-600pm he was asleep, I thought for sure he would wake up in an hour and then not be able to fall asleep, but he actually stayed asleep all night until 630 the next morning! It was great, I wish he'd do that every night!

Summer '07

Wow! I can't believe it has been almost 3 months since my last blog post! I am not very good at the blogging thing I guess. It is amazing how fast time flies, it seems like just yesterday it was the last day of school and we were looking forward to a long summer full of lazy days and No homework! Well summer has come and gone already, but we did have a great summer vacation this year, most of which was spent in Utah with all of our family and friends! We did so many fun things and loved every minute of the time we got to spend with everyone, we loved it so much, it was REALLY hard to come back home! Here are just a few pics from our trip to Utah...there are a couple from Lake Powell included. 4th of July with cousins(Jax, Ellie, Olivia)

Sean helping Miles wakeboard, not a very good pic, but he did stay up longer than he has before, maybe by next year he'll have it down!
