Several Days Late, And A Few Hundred Dollars Short

I can't believe how behind I am in blogging! I guess that's what happens when you have 12 different people circulate through your house over an 8 day period. We have had house guests galore and while it has been fantastic to feel the love of family, I am frankly POOPED. And as I sit to write this, it's just me and Austin. All three older kids are officially at school and it feels fantastic. I mean, sad and lonely, sure, but completely fantastic.

So much has happened but I'll start with back to school stuff. My kids are LOVING IT. I was nervous for Hannah in the Spanish immersion class, but so far, so good. She loves her teacher and feeling like a big girl going to Spencer's school and I am thrilled with how she is doing. And look how gorgeous they were on the first day:



I have so much more to write about but I'm trying to squeeze in a workout while Austin is sleeping and everyone else is gone. Have I mentioned already how much I love my new schedule???

They couldn't be any cuter and happier looking. I think you do well even as a pooped mother. :)

Cute kids Karen. I love how Hannah has her arm around Spencer. Too cute. Isn't it wonderful just having one child at home? aaaahhh! Bliss! Enjoy.

I completely agree about the school schedule, I LOVE IT.

Spencer and Hannah are a cute brother/sister combo. They have such cute smiles!

They are seriously two of the CUTEST kids gracing this planet. Glad they are both enjoying school!

Enjoy your one on one time with Austin. I'm hoping I can come see that little man real soon.
