And They 're OFF!!!

Well it is finally here....the kids have started back to school this week. I can't believe that Nathan is in the fifth grade, Kyle is in fourth and Jericka is now a second grader. I trust that we will have a great year and make a lot of memories. They have all enjoyed getting to know their teachers. I am absolutely loving having a routine again and I am truly enjoying the peace and quiet!!!! (LOL) I know that we will start making up for all of this when the homework starts pouring in.

Camping Trip

This summer we had wanted to do something fun and memorable with the kids and we had planned on taking them to Michigan and going camping and seeing the lake. Do to difficult circumstances that didn't work out. So we were able to go to our friends house and camp out in their beautiful yard out close to the pond. The kids had an absolute blast and loved getting to go fishing. Nathan has turned into quite the little fisherman. Erick took him out in a boat and as soon as Nathan would bring on in Erick would have another pole ready and he would throw right back out. Then the kids were able to go spend some time with Mamaw and Papaw Gray. This is the last week of the kids summer vacation and then it is back to school they go (Thank Goodness)LOL! I am sure they will have plenty of stories to tell us by the time they come home because they will also get to see their cousins while they are there. So thanks John and Shelley for a the best family vacation ever....(Nathan's quote of the weekend) We all loved it!
