We were sad at the end of the summer. B's swim coach took another job down in Florida. Don't blame him as he will be closer to his family. Everyone of the kids just loved Coach Chris. It was very heartbreaking to see him go. He did wonders for Brandon on his technique's in the pool. He is very much missed.
Now it is the end of August and school is starting. Both of my boys love school. They are in 5th and 7th grade this year. Yikes. How did they get to be this age. First day went very well. And since then has been great for both of them. Straight "A's" so far for each.
Then both of them decided that they were taking up another sport besides swimming for B and soccer for R. So I am a cross country and football Mom also.
B is number 640. In between the 2 boys. He does real well running long distance and it helps a lot with his swimming.
R liked football but I think his speciality is soccer.
Continuing on............It was a mild Halloween and both boys dressed up as usuall. Weather was perfect and they got lots of candy.
So now it was time to go to Mesa. I was supposed to be going with my SIL as she was going to med school out there and had a house so it would be like a girls weekend typ thing. Anyway that fell through as she transferred up to Portland and the house went up for sale. So now what.............Bring husband and kids along for the ride. DH was really not wanting to go. I told him since we did not get a summer vacation, to chalk it up as a mini vacation. After it was all over and done with he had a blast. Kids went to the science museum and I had my first day of classes. Merry taught her Le Nouvou Palasis Royal class. ( You can see a better picture of it at her website.
So Dear To Thy Heart.
Then the final day the boys went Geocaching (treasure hunting) and still had a great time. And the final project was Sweet Little Blossoms.
I have been stitching on ATS and Halloweenie. (Picture's to come in next post). I also updated my side bar with projects that I want to start stitching, finish stitching on and also do the finishing as well for the 2013 year.
And in the mean time of all of this thing called life....I do have a full time job as well. So the next post will be current with new pictures of what I am stitching. And hopefully I won't be on a very long hiatus of sorts.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting.
