In the last picture, you can see where she cut her bangs a few months ago. It is taking them FOR-EV-ER to grow out. In fact, I don't think they are growing at all!! On the subject of hair, after lunch we had a hair trim with Mrs. LayLa.
They boys are enjoying school as well. I am having a hard time with afternoon time management. Homework, sports, play-outside-time, clean up time...how do you work it all in??
I am super ready for Fall weather and Fall clothes! Anyone else??

Copie had a good 2nd week of school. We cut our TV time down to 1/2 hour a day on school days. Here he is during his 1/2 hour... that's the best I could get out of him for a quick snap.

Last week Ann Welch decided to "clean" my laptop(which by the way, was purchased this past Jan). She cleaned it "real good" with fruit/veggie cleaner. She cleaned it so good, it died a slow, painful death. Actually, I am going to send it off to see if we can retrieve pics, itunes songs, emails, etc. I'm so mad that I didn't back any of it up!! I have most of my favorite pics uploaded to Snapfish or developed though.
I said all that to say...I've been revamping our grandma desktop. It is slower than Christmas, but it has my old pictures on it. I didn't start this blog until a year and a half ago, so here are some pics before that. These make me so sad...I want my kids to stop growing up so fast!!

Got up at 6:45(NOT early enough)
Handed them new Uniforms...
Copeland put on an old uniform with out asking me and then lied to me about it....so I was NOT happy. It was an old polo from last year he found somewhere. It had a hole in it and stains on the shirt. It should be in the trash.
One of their belts broke.
I REALLY wanted to get some good pictures and as you can see below, I DID NOT.
So...we get in the car by 7:30 and I realize I have no keys.
I call David to come home and bring me a key to get into the house.
He gets here about 7:50ish to save the day.
We get to school at 8:05. I spent the first 5 min. of the car ride(weaving in and out of traffic trying not to be TOO late) with me getting onto Copeland for lying and not putting on the right clothes.
The next 5 minutes were spent with me talking to my sister-in-laws about the first drop off their little girls.
The last few minutes we had time for a short prayer that Ford led. We prayed for them to have a good first day and we prayed for their teachers.
I literally peeled into ACA on two wheels at 8:05.
Carpool line was over...darn.
I ran into the office and asked Julie if they needed a tardy slip(on the first day of school).
She told me to just walk them to class.
I turned around and didn't see AW behind me and I opened the door on her toe. Screams were heard all over the school.
I told the boys to hurry to class but I couldn't walk them there b/c of the loud screams of pain.
Our school counselor gave me the "look". I'm not sure if it was, "I can't believe you can't be on time the first day of school," or "please quiet your child".
Coupled with the anxiety I have of being late and AW being hurt....I wanted to scream too!!
Here they are last year...

I pulled Braxton's tooth today. That's just a random comment.
After we got back to the Marina, we unpacked the boat and realized we'd lost a ski somewhere... NICE. So, we went back out to look for it. We didn't find it , but we ended up staying like 2 more hours and swimming. It was just a beautiful, beautiful day...We have wonderful friends. Jason and Lara, you are next!!
