Let's start at the very begining...

That's a very good place to start.
So we had a tree fall on the house and truck... Geez, what was that...the 12th? 9/12/08

But no worries, C moved it for us...PUSH!!

Hurricane Ike

So, we are all okay. We have been staying at the in-laws after spending Friday night at the high school. We are still with out power, but a cool front came in so the weather is very pleasant. A tree fell on the corner of our house and rolled onto B's truck. The truck is fully functional with a few minor scrapes and scratches, but we will probably need a new half-a-kitchen. All in time.

Thanks so much for all your thoughts and prayers. In the meantime, we are enjoying all of the comforts of a small generator and time with family.

a little poem...

Roses are red.

Violets are blue.

We're pregnant again.

Let the vomitting ensue!

Did I mention C scored an escalade?

C got this sweet ride for his birthday! He is getting so good at driving it. Initially, when he would run into something, he would get out and push the car to a clear path. Now, he can back up and turn and he looks where he going...
Here is AM enjoying a ride from her brother...She actually doesn't like it when it moves. When we would go to Toys'r'us, I would let the kids sit in all the cars and jeeps, but they never moved or made any noise. I think she prefers that.
C is smitten with our neighbors great granddaughter and luckily...she was quite taken with the car!! C's first date.

First Day of School :)

Today was the first day back to school for the Fall. This is a big deal because C started preschool and AM is in the older toddler class. MAN! They both had their backpacks and they were pretty excited to go. I am so lucky that I will be able to drop them off this semester as my classes don't start until 11:00. Next semester I have an 8 o'clock...MAN!!

The day started off well. C ended up sleeping in bed with us until B left for work at 6am, but then AM got up at 6:30 and I just got in the shower. The kids had milk and got dressed. C only had one "time-out", all in all, a pretty good morning. We took a couple pictures here and there, sang some songs on the way to school and settled into new classrooms.
