School has started...

Last week the girls started school! Jourdyn is officially a 8th grader! And Nadine is in 1st grade now. Jourdyn loves "ruling" the school.  She's got great teachers and it looks like it's going to be a great year!

Nadine has a wonderful teacher! Some of her friends are not in her class, but she's okay with that because she sees them at recess. 
Today, Rowan started preschool! He was so excited! Last week he was quite jealous that the girls got to go to school and he didn't! When he got out of the car, he didn't pause or anything, he went straight for the door! I can't wait to hear about his day when he comes home!

Sauder Village

Rob and I took the kids to Sauder Village today.  Neither of us have been since we were little and our children have never been.  We all got to milk a fake cow, ride in a carriage and play with old wooden toys!! Here are some pictures.

A glance back...

Mom and the kids and I went to the Toledo Zoo on Thursday.  We met up with my friend Traci and her daughter Abigail.  It was actually a great day to go.  There was a breeze and a little overcast! The zoo was empty as well.  We visited the aquarium and the aviary. After that we spent our time playing and exploring in the new kids area.

Wednesday we went with Caravans to MOnsoon Lagoon.  We were there for just a little bit and we were hit with thunderstorms.  We were given rainchecks!! but the kids had fun for the short time they were there.  Rowan and Nadine had their first go-kart rides! They loved them!

Well it was time for the Brush Picnic! Jourdyn took her friend Becca! They stayed busy at the pool.  The food was good! And the pool was fun, but the rest was kinda a bust!

This week has been another week of not much out of the ordinary going on.  I've had a lot of meetings and school stuff during the days.  Rowan and Nadine have been at Vacation Bible school with mom and Jim at night at the church they attended when I was in high school. Jourdyn and the teens went to Food For Thought today for a service project.  And I finished up my class today!

The summer is just about over and I can't believe it! The girls have about 2 1/2 weeks left. Rowan will be starting Pre-K in a few weeks! They are growing way too fast! He's excited though! We went to Walmart and got him a "How to Train your Dragon" backpack!! He is so ready to finally go to school!

Nadine went to Lydia's birthday party on Saturday, 7/31.
