I am so far behind here. It's time to catch up.
Shawn and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary on August 26th. We had a nice dinner together at Olive Garden. Came home and had a few drinks and played poker. He lost!! He was nakie and all I had lost was a sock. Saturday we dropped the kids off at his Aunt and Uncle's and headed to the state fair. We had a GREAT time. Ate until my stomach hurt then went over to watch the 6 p.m. news being shot live. Shawn ended up on TV. How cool is that?? We went out with our neighbors that night and had the time of our lives. Sunday we went to the family reunion. Even that wasn't so bad. All in all a really great time together.
The kids started school Monday, well at least the boys did. I went and picked up the paper on Wednesday to find my youngest son on the front page. My guys were local celebrities that week lol. Sky started kindergarten Wednesday and had a fabulous time. She didn't cry or cling at all. Just said bye Mom and shooed me out of the classroom. My girl is so grown up! Hannah started preschool on Friday. Whew! They are all in school and I have Friday afternoons to myself!
By time Saturday rolled around I needed a a drink and some time to myself. Off to the neighbors I went. We were supposed to be celebrating Duanne's (another neighbor) last chemo treatment but he never showed up. Oh well a good time was had anyway. Here is the group shot minus Nathan who took the picture. Shawn is front left and I am back right in the hat.
This weekend I needed a break. I stayed home after I got off work and had no drinks. It was odd lol.
I did volunteer at Sky's school Friday afternoon. I really enjoy hanging out and getting to know all of the kids. I think she enjoyed having me around as well.
Yesterday was the 4th anniversary of the saddest day in America since I have been born. I caught all the documentaries I could. I think we should all take the time to remember that horrible Tuesday morning that changed all of our lives.
I promise to keep this thing up more now that the kids are back in school and we are back into a routine.
