Life is good!

It's been a great week here.

Jack started 4 year old preschool on Tuesday. He did great!! No crying this year!! I'm so proud of him, he's grown up so much over the summer!! I can't believe he'll be 4 on Monday! Wow!!

We signed him up for the 5 days a week program this year, instead of 3 days a week. We thought the extra socialization time would be good for him, since he did have such separation anxiety last year!! Soooo, that means that Mommy and/or Daddy have 2 1/2 hours of free time every Monday through Friday!! It's been great!! Tuesday we did some birthday shopping and just enjoyed the free quiet time the rest of the days! It's nice to be back on some sort of routine again after the craziness of summer! Maybe I'll actually be able to scrapbook again!

Today, Jack and Daddy went to a train show and will check out the hobby store too. When we asked Jack what he wanted to do for his birthday, he wanted to go somewhere wtih trains and go to the hobby store! Of course, getting a snack was also in that mix! So, that's exactly what they are doing. They left a little bit ago with my brother in law and his son.

So, today is girly day!! Macy and I will do a little shopping and get some lunch! Perhaps we'll scrapbook too! It's such a gorgeous day today, amazing since yesterday was so nasty from Hannah!

Jaime and Celeste were so kind to tag me for . . .

They are such super talented, nice, friendly gals!! I got to meet Celeste back around Christmas time! I swear, you meet the nicest people through scrapbooking!!

Marlene: She's a crazy chick and I love it!! She's another fabulous friend!! She hasn't been scrapping that long, I think a little over a year, but she has caught on quickly and has gotten just as addicted as me!
Lea: Super, super sweet and an amazing scrapbooker!! She makes the most beautiful cards and can really rock out a great, clean layout!! I never tire of her layouts!

Hey you! I did the tag...sort of!
Jack looks just adorable as usual, they don't come much cuter than him.

Sounds like fun days for both you and Chris with the kids, enjoy!
