Back to work....

Well, my last few days of summer are almost officially over.  So hard to believe how fast time has gone!  I start back to work Wednesday and Trey starts school the next Thursday (11th).  He starts a few days earlier than public schools but he should get out a few days earlier too (hopefully....if no more blizzards happen!).  The few days I have been at school training have been great and I think we are all really going to love the school.  Trey will be in his element next year with everything he gets to do!  Starting this year the 3, 4, and 5 year olds get their own I-Pad for 30 minutes a day.  He will definitely be able to show me some things or two about mine that I don't know!  He is also very excited about having Spanish class.  He thinks he speaks fluent Spanish because he watches Dora and Diego.  Luckily, I have been able to warn his teacher that he may try to teach the class the first day.

Poor Addy on the other hand is not so excited about these changes.  She keeps saying she is going to kindergarten too and doesn't like it when Trey corrects her.  It is going to be an adjustment for me leaving her somewhere without me right there, but I have no doubt she is going to love Chelsea and have a blast with her.  I am sooo thankful we found her!! 

Our house is still for sale but we are okay with that right now.  We are praying about building so I have a feeling we have a long road ahead of us regardless!! 
I will post some pics of my classroom when I get it in order.  I went with an owl theme and quite possibly went overboard!!  They were just too cute to resist!

Beach trip!

We just got back from our beach trip and I am still exhausted!  This was a "first" for us because although we go to the beach every year we have always gone with family.  However, this year everyone had crazy schedules so we decided to put our big girl/boy pants on and go by ourselves!  We found an awesome condo in Sandestin and booked it before we could change our minds.  I am so glad we did because even though I missed our family a ton, we still had a great time.  We spent a lot of time at the pool because the beach was full of seaweed and both kids thought it was gross (me too!).  Trey told me we need to go back to "Golf Shores" next year becuase there was no seaweed there!

Before the big ride!

 I have to say the most memorable experience was our bike ride we took.  I really like riding bikes but I basically just stink at it.  It's hard and I am pretty wobbly.  But, the kids kept seeing bikes everywhere and begged us to do it so what do ya do?  We rented them on what had to be the hottest day ever and I was pretty nervous at first that I would fall with Addison in the back on her seat.  I got over that pretty quick and then just started praying I wouldn't die from a heat stroke.  After we started riding she kept continually hitting me and telling me to "go faster and keep up."  At one point, J.O. stopped to check on me because I was so far back and I started yelling..."keep going, keep going" because I knew I wouldn't be able to stop.  Then, a group of girls almost walked out in front of me and I started yelling, "I can't stop!" and they just looked at me like I was crazy.  The most embarassing thing though was when we had to stop to cross the street and I tried to get my speed back up to cross and almost fell.  I just gave up and walked the bike across with everyone watching me.  At one point, J.O. asked Trey if he wanted to ride with me and he said no because he wanted to win.  Even though it sounds crazy it was so much fun and now I want to buy a bike to ride around here.  I think I can improve my skills over time!!

It was a great trip and an awesome time for the 4 of us to have together!

Vegas Trip!

We just got back from a quick Vegas trip with some friends and it was so much fun!!  We have talked about wanting to go forever and we decided if we didn't just do it now we never would!  Here are a few pics from the trip.  Getting ready to leave for the beach Saturday and I'm super ready to be laying on the beach!
