Back in the Swing of Things

Well, the first day of school was a success. My 7th grader (S) decided middle school is not as scary as she thought. And my 10th grader is happy with all of her teachers. Win, win. 

I spent the day with Hubby. Again, working on projects around the house. He cleaned out the garage, we got some picture frames hung up, he put up a flag in his pool table room. I made cookies for the girls for after school (our first day of school tradition), and then we relaxed through the afternoon and watched Pirates of the Caribbean. 

What was left of the chocolate chip cookies after the girls got to them. 😉

Day 2 of school was pretty exciting for S.  The whole town was without power for the entire morning. The middle school was just hanging out making arrangements to bus the kids to the high school. S said they just hung out in 1st period and didn’t do any classes or anything. I could have picked her up, but she said she was having fun. The power finally came back in around lunchtime. 

One of my favorite things about living in his area are the rains. Normally, I hate rain. But most of the time, the rain here come and goes so fast, you could miss it. But even if it’s not raining where you are, there is a good chance you’ll get to see the beautiful rainbows. 

We were able to see this entire rainbow from our backyard! 😍

What is everyone up to this week? When do your kids go back to school? 

Talk soon!
