conversation of the day

Avery: What should I do today?
Me: I don't know. Lets go turn on your library movie.
Avery: No. What should I do today?
Me: Well, what do you want to do today.
Avery: Grandpa can come and see me.
Me: I think Grandpa is still out of town.
Avery: Oh ya. Well, I want him to come over.
Me: Let me just have my cup of coffee then I will make you breakfast.
Avery: NO. You can go to church and Grandpa and I can just....hang out or something.

Oh, he makes me laugh.
The good news is is Grandpa is back from St. George and he will come and see him this afternoon for a bit. Yay!! Im still a slacker and didnt go to church though.

13 today...

My Emmy is 13 today...The big official "teenager". Im so proud of her. Shes really come out of her shell this past year and she getting SO big...Cant beleive Im a mother of a teenager.
Ive survived the sleepover birthday party with 8 screaming girls. (barely, and I still have 2 1/2 hrs to go until they all go home.) We had a campout in the backyard with the tent, they roasted marshmellows, ate pizza, and talked, laughed, and played alllllll night long...I had to turn on the christian music channel on my tv in my room just to drown out their giggles so I could sleep. They had fun though...I guess thats all that matters. RIGHT????

I cant believe she's a teenager. I love her more than words can say.

Pics as promised and starting school...

Avery started school last Wednesday. He was soooo ready to be back in and I was ready to have him back in. Just when I thought everything was well when Emmy went back on Monday, Avery got sick. Ya, he's already missed a day of school. Never fails. As soon as he goes back, it starts. He's been well all summer. As I said, Emily started yesterday at her new school and we are both really excited to have her there. Its a Christian private school and she will be getting all her needs met there. I met the teachers this morning and they are truly great women. Very, very nice. I start working more hours this week too. So far, not so good. I dont have anything on my schedule yet for the next 3 days. It will take some time I guess. At least I can kinda be on call. I wanted to share some pics of Emilys trip to South Carolina. She had a great time with T and K. Chillin at the pool, swimming in the big ocean, and catching little crabs along the beach. She had some real quality alone time with grandma and grandpa.
