First day of school!

The stairs are one of my favorite places to take pictures.

Meet Your 1st Grade Teacher

From 3-4 this afternoon all 1st grade students were able to take in their school supplies and meet the teacher. This makes it soooo much easier since the kids will know exactly where the classroom is, where they line up on the playground in the morning and they won't have to lug all of school supplies in on the first day. Brennan found his locker and desk without a problem. He's so excited for school to start tomorrow!

All of them are getting so big, so fast.

Middle School Back To School Night!

Tonight was back to school night for Jadyn...even though school doesn't officially start until Wednesday. She was supposed to meet in her 8th hour class, get her locker assignment with combo, drop off her supplies in her locker and figure out where all her classes are going to be.

However, we get to the school and she was to meet in her 1st hour class, no locker assignments were given out due to possible schedule changes, but we were able to still drop her supplies off since know her 1st hour teacher. Jadyn's 1st hour teacher is the husband of her Kindergarten teacher. =)

This year should prove interesting as one of Jadyn's best friends is in all of her classes and the other is in 3-4. I'm really hoping the girls don't get into too much trouble.

We're just about ready!

School starts for the older 3 bright and early next Wednesday morning.
Jadyn has her back to school night on the 20th. This is nice because we'll be able to drop off all her school supplies and help her figure out where all her classes will be before the mass chaos ensues that first morning.
The school supplies are all labeled, sorted and ready to go. We recycled everything we could, but it's amazing what still needed to be bought.

Karis is just a tad upset that she doesn't start back to school until after Labor Day. She'll be doing 5 days a week this year and won't know what hit her the first couple of weeks. I have no doubt she'll be falling asleep in the car on the way to pick Brennan up from school every day.

Rockford Bound!

Taryn and I headed up to Rockford this morning for appointments.

Taryn grew another inch since her last appt but is still hanging in at 42lbs. Her legs just keep growing.....

As long as Taryn remains seizure free through November, she'll have another sleep deprived EEG done early December. If that comes back normal we'll start weaning her off her meds which will take 4-6 weeks. After she's completely weaned we'll do another sleep deprived EEG and keep our fingers crossed that the results are normal. The results last year were abnormal and she had to go back on her meds.

Her neurologist keeps telling me that it's just a matter of time.

Meet The Junior Dukes!

All the practice and hard work paid off this afternoon when we went to Meet the Junior Dukes. The girls have been working hard some some special cheers. Jadyn was a flyer for one....granted that really shouldn't be a surprised since she's one of the smallest girls on the squad.

Oh how they grow!

Brennan, Ryanne, Jadyn, Camdyn, Riley, Rowyn, Cooper, Taryn & Karis

All 9 are growing up way too fast! The boys are sorely outnumbered by the girls....7-2.

Who ate all the chips?

I'm betting that Rowyn and Ryanne had something to do with it!
