As for us who are still here in Utah....I am back to work...after my three week vacation. Working 30-hours per week is a lot harder than I thought it would be. I think it is because I am "playing" single parent. I thought I would be use to it by now, but maybe once the kids are in school for a couple more weeks, I will finally feel like I have a definite schedule going on!!
Riley started pre-school today, no biggy for him. The kid loves school, yeah for me!! The teachers are so excited to have him back and so are the bus drivers. He is such a fun kid. The other two would no sooner let me go into their school and take pictures of their first day. So I'm sorry, but no pics!
Jake started Junior High this year. Every day I keep telling him to make good choices. I just worry when they get older...he's a good kid, I know he is. But, I still keep the worry a bit close. He loves it so far...he has good teachers and I have spies to keep an eye on him!
Kaycie started soccer and loves it! I kept telling her she would, but she kept telling me to not sign her up. Finally, this year, I just did it. And she is in love with it! The only problem is my life has now become more hectic with two games per week...I keep telling myself, just take it one day at a time!
So all in all we are keeping busy, missing Mark, and trying to keep up with our busy schedules.
