Raindrops keep falling on my head.....

Last week we had several days of rain. Actually I really enjoyed it. I think because it made it feel fallish. The kids finally got sick of being inside and decided they needed to play in the rain.

Hunter managed to get a little air on his jump.

Not sure that umbrella did any good since she was already soaked!

I guess Christian didn't think Hunter was wet enough and so had to throw water on him. Check out the winter jacket Hunter has wasn't cold AND it's on backwards!

Showing Christian the proper way to jump in the puddles.

First day of school surprise!

We were so excited to have the kids back in school we decided, (Jenni's idea actually) to make them welcome home posters with candy, chips and prizes on them. It was a fun way to top off going back to school.

Amber hanging up the signs, but stopping to pose for a picture.

Because it was SO Africa hot that day all the chocolate bars turned to liquid.

They were SO excited when they saw their posters.

First day of school....YEAH!!

August 26th, 2009 parents were rejoicing for it was the first day of school!

The traditional first day of school picture.

No traditional first day of school picture for Jake. I was lucky he agreed to this one in the car.

Taylor and Hunter walking with friends to school.

Hunter went into 2nd grade this year. With his teacher Mrs. Burgan....even though she was crouching down, she is not much taller than him.

Getting things situated in his locker.

Taylor is now in fifth grade!which means she will be switching teachers through out the day. She was SUPER excited to get Mrs. Miller as her homeroom teacher.

Trying to get settled at her desk and avoid me taking her picture. Silly girl...doesn't she know by now I'm still going to take one!!
