End of Summer

It's really hard to blog with a new baby. Every single time, I try to sit down and write up a post. The baby decides to wake up. Do you know how hard it is to type with only one hand. The slideshow is a collection of photos from the last three weeks of summer before school started. I'm pretty sure, I selected random photos due to being lazy plus super busy with baby.

The last couple of weeks, leading up to the kids attending school and summer vacation ended.

*Trip to Nauvoo
*Digging for the kids made $20 selling geodes!
*Bowling Party for two boys...Landon and Logan
*Open House...the kids meet their teachers
*Lots of pictures of the new baby...isn't she cute?

Back To School

The night before school starts, is a super exciting time for the kids. The kids have already met their teachers at Open House and dropped off their school supplies. All three of my big kids will be attending school at Cooper! I will have a 4th grader, 2nd grader, and a Kindergartner. I'm so excited for all three of them. It's been the craziest summer ever. When I think back about are summer together, it's been nothing but an adventure! Let's see, the kids had a longest summer vacation ever due to having only one snow day. Three full months off from school, I had a baby, Leroy's dad sadly passed away, extended family visiting, end of the summer vacation trip to Nauvoo, and crazy extreme super hot drought weather. I can't wait to be able to finally rest up from having a new baby. I'm pretty sure most new mom's don't even attempt to do half the stuff I did with the kids this summer with a brand new baby. I most of been a little bit on the crazy side but it's okay. It's been a really good summer for the most part. It's been great to see how the kids have taken to their new little sister. It's been great to have them all home and watch them love on her but now the weather is finally starting to cool off and I'm ready for them to be off for school. I'm thinking maybe an all day long movie marathon might be in order. I didn't do too much sitting around with the new baby. 

The gang...Landon, Logan, and Leah!

Can you tell which one isn't excited about going back to school?

Leah is so excited...I'm excited for her! She already knows like five other students in her class alone plus a ton of other kids in Kindergarten. It's almost 9:00pm and the kids are still up. They can't seem to fall asleep, I'm hoping they wouldn't be too tired in the morning to get up for school. We put them to bed at 8:00pm but they are still up! Anyways, I will report back tomorrow, on how their first day back to school.
