The first day of school

Well, it's that time of year again when you are running around shopping for school clothes, new shoes and school supplies. Aside from breaking the bank, it breaks my heart a little every year to see my kids grow up so fast. Andrew started the Fifth grade! Middle school is just around the corner, geesh! And, Madison started Second grade. I can still remember crying on their first day of Kindergarten! Although most parents get a little bonkers by the end of summer, when the first day rolls around you can't help but miss them.
We are looking forward to Andrew's first football game with Broomfield Blitz on Saturday. Hopefully we'll have our computer up and running again soon so I can post decent pictures up instead of the fuzzy ones from my phone :(

Trying to keep y'all up to date!

So, I finally get my lovely camera that I had been eyeing for months and not even a week later our computer goes out. (I blame Xcel and the surprise power outtage at 10pm!) Lee has a laptop that he uses for work that he has been nice enough to bring home every night so I can still keep contact with the "outside" world, but I can't hook my camera up to it :( So, I have resorted to taking pictures with my phone and sending them to my email for now.

I hope to keep my friends and family more up-to-date. Andrew will be starting football next week with the Broomfield Blitz so I am SUPER excited about that. They will also be going back to school in just a few weeks which is always bittersweet. I love them being off and being able to stay at home with them and enjoy them while they let me, but as most parents know, they tend to drive you a little nuts at times. Also, it means I go back to my normal Mon-Fri work schedule of the oh-so-tiring 10:30-4:00 pm. I know, I have it easy...but woman have to complain about something, right? So, it will have to be about work for now. I'm sure soon enough I will be complaining about tiny feet in my ribs or a sore lower back! :)
