We Will Miss You Grandma Helen

We have received some sad news. Jason's grandmother passed away. She was not doing well for the past 5-6 days. She decided it was time to go and receive her heavenly crown. I can only imagine how she must have felt to stand before the Lord and hear those words well done my good and faithful servant well done. She was a wonderful person who will be dearly missed by her many friends and family.

Jason and I will be leaving tomorrow (I guess it is actually today since it is already 2:45 am) and traveling to Michigan for her funeral. Please pray for her family during this difficult time. She leaves behind three sons and one daughter. I will try and update once we arrive in Michigan.

Take Care,

To Many Milestones In One Day For This Chic!!!

How many milestones should one mom have to endure in one day. Let me just say that three is to many for me. As you all know Taylor started high school on Monday and that was not easy. Chandler my baby moved from the primary school to the elementary school which I was actually excited about since he will be with Autumn. Just in case those milestones were not enough to send me over the edge Autumn decided she HAD to shave her legs before the first day of school. She has been begging me for a year to shave and I finally gave in. I of course had to document this event with many pictures.

The process begins...........

I convinced her shaving cream is a must even though her friends said they only use soap. Hey mom knows best don't argue.

Ahhhhhhhhh smooth as silk.

Book bags are packed, lunches are ready, legs are shaved it's time for the first day of school. They were less than excited about me having to take their picture at 7:30am.

Chandler is so sweet opening the door car door for Autumn.

Everyone had a great first day Taylor loved high school, Autumn really liked her teacher and Chandler said this is the best teacher he has ever had.

Still No Pictures!!

Another busy day with no pictures. I need to break this bad habit immediately!!!
Today was a sad day for me. I went with Taylor to high school orientation. Is it possible that he will start high school in three days? I feel like I just dropped him off for kindergarten and now he is a freshman. I was really happy for him to see he is excited about high school but also sad to realize that he has grown up so fast. He has chosen to continue in the honors program and will have some very challenging classes this year but I know he will do just fine. Imagine my surprise when I saw Aerobic/Dance on his class schedule?! He quickly informed me that it is a weightlifting class for the football players. I just hope I get good pictures at the end of course recital. :) We were told last night that his class will be the largest freshman class to ever attend the school. They will have 32 homeroom classes with approximately 25-30 students in each for a total of around 800 freshman. That should make for a loooooong graduation ceremony in 4 years.

Autumn and Chandler also had their teacher meet and greet last night. They both received the teachers they wanted and are excited about that. I can not believe the summer is over and school will start on Monday. It was such a short summer.

Autumn had her first practice last night for the Stingerz (travel softball team) . Jason said it went o.k. but they have alot of work to do. I wasn't able to help him with practice last night because I was with Taylor. Our first tournament is August 9th so I guess we have alot to do in the next week.

After all the school visits and practices last night we did get to go with a group of friends to the new Mexican Restaurant. It was nice to visit with everyone after a busy couple of weeks.

We are planning to get some school shopping done this weekend and everything ready for the first day of school on Monday.

Have a great weekend.
