Can't believe it is almost fall.
I guess I should use today to vacuum out the beach sand from my van.
Maybe I should mow the lawn one more time.
And let the raking begin.
How are we full blown in school?
Homework, tests, practice, projects, cupcakes in classes, ironed clothes (yes, ironed- I do this until about February and then anything that is clean will do), packed lunches, early breakfast and waiting at the bus stop.
I am starting to miss waking up a little later and hitting the beach.
Now we countdown to Christmas- AHHHHH!
Tell me you have done your shopping already?
I have to start making some lists I guess.
Looking forward to pumpkin pie, getting these air conditioners out of the windows and for the hectic sports schedule to die down simply because it is too cold to play.
I am thankful for the seasons. The kids enjoy it.
But, one day....
One day, I will move down south and never buy a winter coat again.
Speaking of winter coats- I think everyone needs one.
Hello Burlington coat factory!
We have a wedding to go to on Sunday - looking forward to it.
Date night for me and the husband- that is what weddings are.
And out to dinner on Saturday for our Aunt's birthday.
I love having things to look forward to.
What about you?
What are you looking forward to?

A lot to do.
And now we have off for 2 days for Rosh Hashanah.
Yay for Jewish holidays at public school!
Hope they sell now that the colder weather is upon us!
Plans for the week?
Selling on ebay.
Cleaning- finding jeans for everyone- getting kinda chilly!
And a ton of games and practices!

o, last week was like a whirlwind. We had a bbq last Sunday and then labor day was spent at the beach with my mom and my mil.
Not the best beach weather, but fun just the same. I love this girl in the coral suit!
The kids jumped in holes.
And had a great time.
Can't believe our beach days are pretty much over.
Both boys started fall baseball. We usually don't do fall sports, but why not?
It was the little guy's first time playing- he loved it.
Now, if we could just get him to stop running with the bat?
Big sister played a role in her children's church class as a nurse and let this guy dress the part, a male nurse just like his Abuelo. Sorry Dad that we made so much fun of you when I was a kid!
And I entered a mug swap at Cuppa Kim. I scored this beautiful mug, salted caramel hot cocoa, which looks divine and some tea I plan on trying from Christy!
Thanks so much Christy!
On the home front we are back to school and back into the swing of things.
Missed our school posts?
They are here and here.
Special Congratulations to this awesome lady! Welcome Baby Caleb!
And don't forget about this yummy giveaway.

I am a mom who is big on doing everything the same for each of our kids!
That being said, we decided to put the little guy in pre-school!
We never sent the other 3, but everything is different now.
The kids are in public school and pre-school is free, so we decided to give it a whirl.
The little guy will have to go to full day kindergarten next year, so we figured 2.5 hours of pre-school might help him ease into it.
It was hard to leave him and even my middles said, "Mom, are you really leaving him here?"
The little guy did great.
His only problem?
He is upset he has no school!
**Don't Forget this Awesome Giveaway!!!***
