School Daze...already?

I still have 3 kids headed to school! They are actually excited about it! I am too...normal schedules, earlier bedtimes, conversation about "How was your day?" and what did you have for lunch? I really do look forward to it and love surprising them occasionally with homemade cookies when they get home from school...Now I don't "Martha Stewart" it everyday..but the days I do...It is appreciated! And the smiles from my girls and the big hugs from my 6'2 16 year old son make it all worth while!

Back from vacation!

Why is it that vacation is just not quite long enough? Ours this year was wonderful! Our family enjoyed a week on Cannon Beach, Oregon and it was sunny most days! We spent every day on the beach...laying in the sand, wakeboarding and building castles! I even learned something new...making beaded earrings!

Very relaxing AND rejuvenating! Now back to work!

My daughter goes "On the Air"

She's just way too fun...so when my 10 year old Madison asked if she could fill in on the air when Jim was on vacation! I said sure...but you'll have to help me make the coffee and do weather forecasts AND get up at 4:30am! "No problem". We're having fun this summer exploring our new community and enjoying the sunshine, picking LOTS of berries and just being together...although that is difficult at times since my two teenagers have been "hanging" with friends most of the summer! I'm ready for school to start....are you?
