And so it begins...

Welcome, September!!!!  I feel like this summer went by in a wink of an eye on some days and others dragged on like America's Got Talent.  This summer was unique in that Trey has taken some sort of secret Terrible Two oath.  We could barely go anywhere with all 5 of us without a Plan A, Plan B and a "Bail Completely" plan.  How does one keep 3 kids busy/happy/satisfied that are at all different stages and ages?  Don't ask me, clearly I don't know since all of my kids can sing the theme song to Phineas and Ferb.  Trying to do anything that might make Trey skip a nap is just asking for trouble...he'd probably shank you with a shiv whittled out of a crib slat.  That kid takes nap time seriously.  Though between crying jags, we were able to have fun.  Jay and I would take turns taking the kids to the pool...we visited the Children's Museum, Kennywood...went to few parties, had family in town.  It was a fairly low key summer...just my style.

But, today we sent Joe off to second grade and my baby girl Bella to Kindergarten!  Oh! My nerves!  What if she needed me?  What if she got lost?  What if someone was mean to her?  What if she cranked out?  What if they put her on a bus????  We're walkers this year, and there's just something great about that.  It feels so Americana...fresh air in the morning and afternoon...ahhhh.  Ask me how I feel about this when it's 0 degrees outside...Now I get to spend some serious time with Trey!  How will we fill our days????  Hopefully, the laundry will get done a little faster, some projects will get out of my head and actually materialize, and maybe a bit more time for blogging since everyone conked out at 8:00 over here...
I think we're off to good start...

Aw, such a big girl (and boy, and other boy). It goes fast even when they're not your own kids! Rach- enjoy the new found freedom...and some time with *just* the baby!

Lovin the look over here at A Heart In Progress! I am glad my kids aren't the only ones who watched Phineas and Ferb and that I am not the only one who has a hard time pleasing and handling the masses. Throw a couple of teenagers into your crew! Yikes!

The kids look adorable and I'm sure Bella did fine.

Such a funny post! That whole first paragraph just had me crackin up~!

Phineas and Ferb, eh? hmmmm... I have a love/hate relationship with that show. Neither here nor there... enjoy the walk to and from for awhile- what a blessing to be able to do that!
