i used the opportunity to start school with him this week. there were some bumos in the road, but overall it went very well, and i look forward to what the year holds.
we'll see how this week goes with molly here....fingers crossed.
the pictures arent very exciting or artistic this week. i even have one picture twice...sort of.
SUNDAY, august 16th
i took molly to mimis. i actually took her to aunt nitas house in waco (thats mimis sister and she was there visiting for the week). traffic was awful there and back. i hate seeing brake lights on the interstate!
MONDAY, august 17th
colbys first day of school!! here are some of the books we're using.
TUESDAY, august 18th
mom took colby and i to hamilton pool. its a sink hole with a natural spring that keeps it full. you have to hike 1/4 mile down to it, then of course back up when you're done swimming. it was so much fun. we may take our friends later in the week!
WEDNESDAY, august 19th
i went to IKEA to browse the organizational options for the kids' rooms. we have a toy nightmare. plus i'm wanting to move all the toys out of the playroom and into their respective places (mollys room or colbys room), and get a table and chairs where colby and i can sit and do his school work. the only pictures i took this day were of the things i found at IKEA, so i could report back to allen.
THURSDAY, august 20th
WICKED round two! after seeing it in san antonio in june, i bought tickets so i could take my dad for his birthday (its here in austin now). what was neat, though, was a friends of ours had 2 extra tickets, so she sold them to allen for a bargain and allen took colby. we all really enjoyed it! this is me and my daddy before the show.
FRIDAY, august 21st
busy day! molly came home, surprise college graduation party for a dear friend of ours that afternoon, then on to dinner at some friends' house. i didnt even think about pictures till it was almost dark, so all i got was molly swimming after dinner.
SATURDAY, august 22nd
woohoo!!! project reorganize! after a family trip to IKEA, we came home and allen spent the next 3 hours building everything we bought while i gutted the kids' rooms to prepare them for their new toy bins. we got one of these for each of the kids, a small toy box for all mollys dress up clothes, and a table with 4 chairs to put in the playroom (i guess we'll have to rename it since there arent any toys in there anymore!). i will sleep so good tonight knowing everthing has a place. my soul is at peace. :) does this picture look familiar?? (see wednesday)
have a fabulous week!!!
