Here is Mom visiting over at my sister's house in New York. They had a wonderful visit. Needless to say, I am very jealous of the fall season back there. I wish I could of been there with them. I was glad to hear about all their adventures and how much fun they had together. I can't say I am not jealous, but maybe one day we all can take a girls trip. I love you all very much. Squeeze my Kai monster for me or just bump him for me with the " belly." :)

" I think I said jealous twice" Yea.. I did...

Kelly, your bottom is not huge!!!! You were meant to carry babies girl!

I know... Don't say it,,,, I have no recent pictures to post from our pumpkin journey, thanks to not having a camera, and then there is Megan who's camera is on the fritz. But I had to add something. :) Nothing of the big kids, but will make them pose for me one of these days. Its hard to believe that these little gobblins are so big now. Seems like yesterday, I was posing Lucas by the pumpkins on the deck in Colorado trying to get that perfect picture and now he is in Pre-K. Even though times are getting away from me, there are so many wonderful memories of our kids. So why not share some of the old pictures. I know you will all get a kick out of them anyways.

We had a wonderful weekend. Busy, and I survived it with all my driving, games, pumpkin farm, dairyqueen, you name it we did it and had fun doing it. Megan and Sam came with us, Sam pushed the heavy load of pumpkins, then it was time to go get a goody as Iwasn't paying what they wanted for theirs, and we headed home. Oh, before that was soccer games. Lucas's team kicked butt, and Rylee my gosh, she was so awesome out there. Her team lost, but they put up a big fight.

Now its already Wednesday almost, and its been very busy. I volunteered today in two classrooms which I am observing for one of my classes. I really enjoy it. Rylee has half days all week so we have been doing fun things after school.

Her school conference was Monday and she is above her grade level. " High Five To Rylee" I am very proud of her. She loves to write and writes everyday. I am hoping I will have a famous book worm on my hands. Its so fun to watch her create. She even writes a journal. Its really neat. Only six and look at her..... " SO SWEET"

All the kids are doing super. We are getting ready for Halloween. We are in the baking mode. Lucas and I made pumpkin muffins before school, barely made it out today because he insisted on them.:)

Its been such a great week so far, just busy.... Will keep you all posted and will work on the pictures.

Luv you all and miss you dearly.......

The Expanding Belly.....

Thought I should post a picture of my sisters huge belly on my blog... Hard to believe my nephew will soon be here. I have been throwing tons of names at them so hopefully they will budge on one of them.
Favorites are:

Still Sunny And Hot!!!!

Amazing to think that its the middle of October almost and we are soaking in 90 degrees. I am wanting it to cool down, so the bugs will leave us alone. I do miss the seasons so much. The kids keep talking about how the leaves are changing. Well for us its yellow to brown.:( I miss Maine every year during this time.

We had a very busy week. I had a blast working in Rylee's class. I was also invited to work along with a substitute because I know the class so well and she was new. I could of ran that class better then her. Needless to say, I could make a great teacher one day, if I finish that route. I really feel great and enjoy it so much. I am leaning more towards it.

Our week is going by very fast. Its been a great week overall. Even my class load is moving along and I love all my classes. I am very happy to be back in school. I am almost done with my Associates, then I will move onto my Bachelors.

This weekend will soon be here. We are doing our normal soccer games on Saturday, then heading to the pumpkin farm. I love this time of year and the kids as well. I found a cheaper place to go to, so it should be alot of fun.

I will write more, just wanted to update. My cold finally left, and so happy the kids never got it.. I love you all.

Hello Everyone~ I hope everyone had a good week. I spent my whole week with a major cold and we all know how fun those are. So of course I mixed up soccer practice. We showed up Tuesday thinking it was Lucas's practice when it was Rylee's and seemed like I forgot alot of things because I felt crummy. I finally went to the doctor and they gave me medicine so that was good.

Hard to believe this month is almost over and soon October. The kids are excited to start decorating and I think we will hit the pumpkin farm next weekend.

We have games later today which I made sure those were the right time :) and I think we will just come home and watch a movie and rest.

The kids have managed not to get what I have so I am happy about that.

I will try to post some recent pictures soon, but just haven't felt like it. But promise to get back on the ball with that this week.

We love and miss you all.

~Busy week~

Hello Fam~
We have had a very busy week. I started volunteering in two classrooms this week. I volunteer in one of the kindergarten rooms, then I head over to Rylee's classroom for two hours. I plan on doing this two days a week, three hours each time. Its alot of fun and I really enjoy working with the kids. Rylee didn't know what to think and she was so shy. It was funny. She kept on hugging me alot, so I know she was glad I was there.
Lucas is doing wonderful in pre-school. He knows the routine and its so cute to watch him start up conversations with his classmates. The teachers really enjoy him and they tell me he is so quiet. Is that a good thing? I am reading a story to his class on Monday, so I am looking forward to seeing his reaction to me in his classroom.

Megan has been busy with school. Our routine changes daily. She is able to do half days, then goes to work, either I or Sam, sometimes Michelle pick her up. She is doing very well at PetCo. Her manager really enjoys her and the customers love her. She just went out of her way this week to help a family with a dog they had brought in and was in need of love. She gave him a bath for free and the customers went as far as leaving her boss a high five for Meg. So way to go Meg! She was given a special reward for great customer service. Here is a funny picture of her and Sam. They are glued at the hips. This would be a crazy picture of them.

Maybe Meg will check the blog and laugh.... Her amazing laugh... HA! HA! HA!

Zach is doing great in school and skates like crazy. His shoes really show it. But now he wears the junky ones and saves the good ones for school. He just bought a new board and he does go through them alot. Very exspensive hobby. He just went to see pro skaters in Camarillo and he was able to grab free t-shirts, stickers, and they autograph what you bring in such as your skateboard. Zach has three now on his wall. His birthday is around the corner and he will be 13 which is hard to believe. He is so tall. He is taller then me now. Here is a picture of him with a pro skater.

Hard to believe its Friday, but it is... We have a busy weekend. On Fridays we do pizza night, with a movie. Its cuddle time. Early Saturday are our games, plan on going hiking with Rocco and Sunday is church and if its nice we are heading to the beach. Then our busy week starts all over again. I will stay on top of this I promise.. I luv you all!!!!!
