Rich and I, after a summer of fun with the kids, decided to take a much needed break by ourselves, no phone, no traffic, no noise:) We went up to the mountains, got some fresh air, and some R&R!
He took me on a hike to see Dane spring that I missed out on because of the ankle incident last summer that everyone got to see. Pretty neat!
Mostly we enjoyed being together watching movies, playing cards- he kicked my butt every time, ahrrr:) and looking at the beautiful sunset, by ourselves. We enjoyed the cool mountain air, music and sometimes just QUIET! Our home can be very noisy. We feel rejuvenated and ready to be back in real life. It was such fun to take a breather.

Good riddins' ya loonies

School started Yeah! We were all ready!

Logan started High School, I can't hardly believe it! He has A-hour for the 1st time, it comes painfully too early for me. Fortunately for me, I pick up after school only, gotta love carpool:)

Paij started Jr. high, a big 7th grader. She was nervous, but so cute and brave and loved the 1st day

Sydney started 5th grade, and got the teacher she wanted, so far all the kids have had Mr. Daniels and have loved him! She was happy, but hot as she got off the bus.

Carson started 1st grade, all day for the 1st time, he informed me he is ready, we'll see how it goes. He also got off the bus happy but sweating to "death!"

Ivy and Ashton fortunately for me are home for a few more years, and took a really GREAT nap for the 1st time in awhile. I even had to wake them up to pick up the high school carpool.

I had a quiet, much needed day today, and was thrilled to see them after school!!
