Busy, Busy and Busy!

We have been so busy since school started! I am ready for things to slow down a bit. I have been working 40 hr work weeks the past 3 weeks and am exhausted! I wasn't cut out for the work force! LOL 2 weeks of in-service/getting my room ready, subbing in the Fantastic 5's class 3 days, subbing in the 2's class 2 days and working my normal days has been rough. I am not sure how moms who work full-time and have a family do it! I haven't had time for blogging, barely have time for facebook. I fall into bed at night and am asleep in minutes!

We did enjoy the Labor Day Holiday Weekend though. We started off the weekend at Hope and Chris' lake house...sadly Matt didn't get to join us as he had a "thing" on Base that he was taking part in. We enjoyed playing lots of "Bananagrams" and just being lazy. We did head over to the marina and play on the rocks and playground. We had planned to go canoeing but since Matt didn't join us we ended up not (Hope and I briefly entertained the thought of putting all 3 kids in a canoe and taking them by ourselves while Chris watched football but quickly nixed that idea much to Taylor's disappointment). We promised her we would do it next time. Sadly I have no pictures of the weekend b/c I forgot my camera and the few pictures that got taken are on Hope's camera.

We got home late Sunday afternoon and had planned to go to Boomsday with the Aaron, Amy, Clara and Coy but ended up not b/c of how late it was. We did head over to their house where the kids enjoyed being pulled around the yard/field on the trailer. We also had our 1st bonfire of the season complete with hot dogs and s'mores for dessert! It was a great night for a bonfire. Monday was spent being lazy...the kids enjoyed playing outside in the gorgeous weather while Matt and Aaron did manly things like yard work and cutting down a bathroom door (which wouldn't close) and a bedroom door that dragged on the floor and was leaving a huge mark on our hardwood floors. Sadly I took no pictures of the manly work being done :(

All the kiddies enjoying a ride!

Taylor cooking her own dinner!

My sweet little boy!

Our weeks are going to be pretty busy for awhile....Taylor has tennis on Thursdays and Girl Scouts on Fridays. We are trying to find Caleb something to do (tennis, karate, basketball) and Madison can't decide what she wants to do (gymnastics or ballet). Oh yeah, football season has started so I don't see much of Matt in the evenings....guess that is a preview of what my life will be like in a few months :) We are looking forward to a little R&R at The Wilderness this weekend though!

Holly, I'm right there with you on work business. I'm only there for about 4 1/2 hours two days a week, and it's wearing me out!:) In just a few short years away from teaching, I forgot how much time it takes to prepare for the actual teaching. Getting up to get Lauren to school is also taking a toll on me. While my girls were not late sleepers, I never had to set my alarm clock because they would always wake me up before we ever had to be any where. I'm not enjoying the 6 a.m. hour that much right now!:)
Hope you guys have a fun, relaxing weekend!
