Don't they look good in their new clothes?
I don't know about you but I am full of emotion on the first day of school! I know what your thinking....She must have been a crying mess!! O NO! If I didn't have to work there would be a PARTY! Don't get me wrong, I love my kids and I love having them home and to play and do things with them. But I am a firm believer that all children need a schedule and summer always seems so crazy and there tends to be NO schedule whatsoever! And no matter how hard we try to get one going in the summer we always fail! Bed time is 8:00 and that makes it sooo much easier to get things ready for tomorrow! It's MOM time and I think every mom needs that time to regroup and CLEAN up the Tornado that went through the house!

He didn't get the play last year because it was decided
that his broken wrist from a year ago still needed some time
to completely heal and for his wrist to regain its strength!
He is so excited to finally get to play!
They had their first game on Saturday but they lost.
Austin did get lots of playing time which made him happy!
His coaches seem to be really good with the boys
which means they must have LOTS of patience!

We just couldn't find a drop box to leave them in!
We had a great time at the Zoo on Saturday. Despite our teasing the kids about being wild animals they were well behaved and listen EXTREMELY well! Grandma would be very proud of her grandchildren!
We went fishing a little over a week ago and I know that you are supposed to catch FISH! I was walking back from the truck when the ground under me moved, my first thought was "ENOUGH with the GRASSHOPPERS already!!" I am soooo sick of GRASSHOPPERS! But then I realized that they weren't grasshoppers, so I yelled at the boys to come check out what I saw! Now those of you who have boys know very well how it all goes from here! We now have to empty a water bottle for our great CATCH! What a lucky mom I am...."Can we take them home with us? PLEASE Mom!?!" Being of sound mind I instantly say sure! But my husband...imagine that...says No, they'll just die! "WOW that was a close one!" was my only thought!!! Sorry boys, maybe next time! So it was a CATCH and RELEASE kinda day for us!
