Catching up...

I am going to spend some of this time in November catching you up on what has been going on since I last was in the blogging habit! The last I really blogged was about the first day of school! We have now completed the first nine weeks of this school year!

So, let's begin at the end of August. School started and the routine was back. I love routine! Jon Paul and I attended a marriage conference, hosted by our church. It was a good time spent together and reminding us of things we need to be doing to keep our marriage alive.

Work for me was getting ready to take a big turn. With both girls in school full time, I decided to take on more responsibilities and hours. It was been great. I'm getting to work a new side of real estate and learn even more about this field. I enjoy the work and it is definitely keeping me busy! A cool perk that came with my new responsibilities was a new iPhone! I'm very grateful and appreciative to have been given this gift. It's been a lot of fun and I've fallen in love with texting! I did get a new cell phone number, so let me know if you need to update it!

The girls both love school and love their teachers. Rachel's teacher is young. This is her first year to teach, she just graduated this past May and was married over the summer. She is energetic and has a great first class. Rachel is in the highest reading group and was chosen to be in the Gifted and Talented class. GT is going to be really good for her - it is definitely challenging. Rebekah's teacher is a lot of fun and has excellent classroom management. Rebekah is always talking about her and has fun coming home to get us to play "school" or "centers" with her. Rebekah can tell you the names of all the trouble makers in her class and tell you exactly what they do! She is coming out of her shell and learning so much!

So, a little to catch you up. Sorry, no pictures - there will be more to come, along with more about September in the coming posts. Please come back!
