Let the Craziness Begin

I had totally forgotten how busy things are once school starts back.  I am running all the time.  It seems someone always has to be picked up or taken somewhere.  I love it but it is tiring!!  I had also forgotten how much gas I use during the school year.  Multiple trips over the mountain a day will use up some gas.  

Extracurricular activities got started up this week.  Ben had his first soccer practice.  He is excited to be on the same team as Hunter.  Kate starts soccer and dance next week and piano starts for Ben in a couple of weeks.  It is going to get even crazier!
 I got started back working at Ben's school with library duty and room mom meetings this week.  I love being in the school and seeing what is going on.  I got a look at Ben's description of his summer.  Made me laugh so hard.  So much in his picture is so awesome!
 I got to eat lunch with my sweet boy and his class!
 Kate wanted to skip lunch on Thursday so we did and had a picnic at home instead.  Cherishing every moment of her last year not in big school.
 Today we did another lemonade stand for Swim for Melissa.  Love seeing the Crazy Clownfish team work so hard!  We made $120 in an hour.  Not bad!!
 The best part was when the cookies fell on the ground and the kids got to eat them!
 And just a random sweet moment from the week...  Our wonderful neighbor Anna rides to school with us some.  She is in the 7th grade and so wonderfully sweet!  The kids just love her.  I found her and Kate playing baby dolls before school this week.  Not many 12 year olds would do that.
Well we survived the first full week of school.  I'm exhausted and it is only going to get crazier!
