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!!!!!

It's the fam......

Our big boy on his first day of pre- school. A minature Kelly.

Cute..... :)

They are getting big way to fast....

Soccer Day

We started soccer and this is their second week with games. They are every Saturday with two schedules. Today Lucas had one at 11:00, then Rylee's was at 4:00,they last about one hour. The parents are wonderful and its really alot of fun to be involved. They are doing very well and very eager to play with their teammates. It is a blast to watch them. Its funny to watch all of us screaming parents screaming at each others kids to get the ball down the field. Its really cool. Rylee and Lucas really enjoy hearing their names being yelled and to be cheered on by the other teammates.
Lucas always looks back to see if we are screaming at him. When today he scored a goal, his face was like " wow, that was cool. " As all the parents are screaming his name.
We had a great day today and very busy. We will all sleep well tonight. :)

back in the old days of the kids.... Too funny.....

They are going to hurt me for
posting this!!!!!

They are so adorable

Amazing how much they still love each
other. I miss them when they were
small. I wanted to add this because
I stubbled upon it and they were just
so cute......

Lucas, Corine, Rylee and Tasha

Rylee misses you Corine!!!!!

This must run in the family

I'm swimming, swimming, swimming. Look at that face.... awwwwww

Future Michael Phelps

I decided that it was time to put the kids in swim lessons. So off we went every morning for three weeks. Some days we froze, some days we fried, but it was a positive adventure because they can swim! Yea!!! We went everyday just for fun even on days of swim lessons. Here is Lucas in the deep end on a day where he was " pooped " from all his jumping in on top of me:) So the life jackets would come out at this time. They would swim for hours at a time. They would sleep very well on those evenings. They had a wonderful time and it was a free event for us, and mom even shriveled up like a raisen, Good times.... :)

I AM BACK.......

I am blogging again. Yes, indeed. Beware. I am hoping this will rub off on me like it has Kelly. We are all doing wonderful and staying very busy with school, sports, our many activities and I just started volunteering in school. Life couldn't be better and I am so very happy. So look for future pictures of the kids. I will be trying to update once a week. Just know your support means the world to me and I love all of you very much.
