I looked out back and had to smile. It's almost my favorite time of year.
Nope not football season, but it does happen during the Autumn so I embrace the sport that I don't fully understand. Po Boy football goal right heya! Hey "A" for creativity w/the sprinkler pipes.
Logan started Jr. High and I was not dreading it like other Moms were. I think he is really happy to be in a more grown up school (although I beg to differ on them being more mature). He is very concerned about his hair being fixed this year (thank you girls that have a crush on him and make it known) but sadly the deodorant EVERY day is still a work in progress.
One night Ella came up w/this wig on and it was pretty funny until a few days later I figured out that she had tried to cut bangs in a spot on the front and they didn't work so to hide it from me she chopped off her hair clear to the scalp and then was just parting her hair farther over so I didn't see it. When I found it she cried her poor little eyes out. She has so much hair its not hard at all to hide but her hair is so thick I'm not sure what her plan is when an inch of growth sticks straight out. Only time will tell. what a dork! and I didn't write the wrong Name above.....it was Ella, my almost 11 yr old.
Neve has taken to playing American Girl while I exercise while all the kids are at school. This makes Ella very mad when she gets home because it is all of Ella's stuff and Neve makes a giant mess that she refuses to clean up. It's not the playing w/her stuff that Ella hates. She hates cleaning. LOL
After a week home w/me by herself and being the Angel that she is when she is an only child it was time to send her to her first Day of Aunt Sands. I let my kids dress themselves so don't judge. I also don't buy them new school clothes at the beginning of school anymore because I don't think they need more shorts and t-shirts and the other clothes are just way too hot right now. I will wait until they actually need cool weather clothes. So they will be sporting their same boring summer duds on first Day of school pics from here on out. I actually started that last year or the one before.
Right now she is shopping in the Oriental Trading catalog but she's making me look at everything she wants. UGGGHHHH! Mom, mom, mom, mom, look, look, look, mom, mom, Helloooo, mom.
I have a headache today and she's pushing my limit. I'm about to go hide.
