Having a place to go is home, having someone to love is family, having both is a blessing!

Not private any longer

So facebook has been where I have been posting most of my pics and updates because it uploads faster.....I got lucky today and these pics actually uploaded yeah! So for all of you who wander why we don't update our blog it is because we update on facebook, but I am trying to do both:) I love coming here and reading everybody elses happenings so keep them coming:) Oh and we are not private anylonger.....I figured if I took out all of the personal info we would be safe:)

Our new puppy!

So we finally caved and got a puppy! We went to the Humaine Society and found our little guy Briggs! He is such a fun and exhausting addition to our family! I always have to watch him to make sure he doesn't chew on certain things and make sure he makes it outside to pee! It is just like having a newborn baby:) But we love him and are glad that we got him! They think he is a cross between a beagle and lab so he will get to be a good size but for now he is still small! He has the beagle floppy ears for sure and the tail, more of a lab nose and body! Our kids adore him, lets just hope it stays that way I am sure it will wear off:)

Alyssa'a first cross country meet!

Alyssa decided that she wanted to do Cross-country this year and they let 5th graders so we said give it a try! She loves running and really enjoys being part of the team! She ran her first meet in 17 minutes and some seconds....I can't remember exactly but it was around a mile and a 1/2 she actually ended up puking as she passed the finish line because she said she was so hot and really pushed herself! We were so proud of her! She is such an awesome kid!

First day of school!

Finally I am posting my kids first day of school! Alyssa's was hard because Olivia scratched her in her eye and it was burning so when I took the pic she could barely see out of it she said. I had to take her to the eye doctor on the first day and sure enough she had a scratch on her actual eye! Poor thing, but we got her medicine and it got better quick, needless to say she will never forget her first day of middle school! Meckenzie was my emotional one and was sad that school was starting again but loved it when she went! She enjoys third grade but sad that she has more homework now:) Weston was mad that I didn't let him take the bus to school on the first day and said that he didn't like that tradition! He loves kindergarten and is already ready for first grade!! He loves his new teacher and loves going all day! I am glad the kiddos are back in school...now maybe I can gain my sanity back!
