Our Week

I really wasn't ready for summer vacation to be over. I do not like getting up at 5. And we have one bus that comes at 5:47 a.m.! That is just crazy. It transfers at another school at 6:20 before going on to the girls' school, so Rick has been dropping them at the 6:20 drop. Their afternoon bus hasn't been getting to the transfer point until 4:00 and that is crazy too!

Kaleb is at a different school, and his morning bus picks up two blocks away at 6:24 and drops off at 2:00, so I have more time with him than the girls.

Here is the difference between cats and dogs. All the dogs meet the kids at the gate, jumping up and down with excitement.

The cats couldn't care less.

Sasha, puppy in top picture, is much smaller than the cat in the above picture, but due to their coloring, I have mistaken the puppy for the cat more than once. The puppy also has silky soft fur like a cat!

Travis has finally decided to play with her. I always thought Travis was so small, but now he looks big in comparison.

Adam is playing soccer on a local church team.  He starts college tomorrow and continues with his Marine Reserve training one weekend a month.

I rarely see him without his friend Ishmael, who also starts college tomorrow, and his girlfriend Daja, who is a high school senior.

 Tyler sent pictures of the Job Corps group at a local amusement park.
He is doing well there and has made a lot of friends. Job Corps has been a positive experience for him, although it's not for everyone.
So, like it or not, we are into a new school year. Kaleb is continuing with Tumbling and gymnastics, and Kayla with gymnastics. Jasmine will start hip hop and jazz classes after Labor Day and also after school marching band practice one day a week. She may try out for the county Christian choir. We will have to see how it all goes. I don't want her overwhelmed with activities. The girls have way more homework at their school than Kaleb does at his.

Is everyone else into a new school year now?
