The last Saturday

We made the most of the last Saturday before school starts. Max slept until 8:00 and Ben and I slept until 9:00. It was great Jacob was awake when Max got up so he let me sleep in. Man it was nice. Considering that I went to sleep at 9:45. I was very well rested. After we got up and around we went to John and Dia's house for a swim. Well Jacob and Max swam while Ben played with toys. John grilled hamburgers so we ate lunch there too. Then we came home for nap time. The kids napped while Jacob and I just laid around. After the kids woke up we went to Mau and Nicole's house. We had homemade pizza it was yummy! After the kids played the Wii the adults played sing star. I lost as usual but it is still a lot of fun. Max is so funny he wants to sing too. I wish I would have had my camera. Since they have been home with Jacob they are very interested in music.

So, I can not believe that school starts in 2 days. WOW! I am excited but nervous. I know it will be fine, but still, it is my first year. I know I have said it a lot but Jacob is doing a great job at home. It is amazing he keeps all the clothes washed and the dishes done. He has them on a great schedule and they love it. I am still a little sad about being gone so much but at least I know they are in good hands. They will start Mother's Day Out in September on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Max went last year and loved it. Ben has never stayed without us so we will see how that goes.

Open House

OMG! I survived my first open house. It was pretty crazy but good. We had a great turn out . I was not expecting so many people or so much inforamtion. I will never remember any of it. Oh well. Hopefully I will get to come home at a decent time tomorrow. I do have to thank Jacob he has been going it alone most of the nights and has done a wonderful job. I don't know how people do it alone.

The whole gang.

We spent four night and five days at Orange Beach in Alabama. We had a great time and got some good pictures. We went with Jacob's parents and his brother's family. Max and Ben loved being with their cousins and grandparents all day and night.
