1 Day of School Down.......

We were so excited for Em to make it home from school yesterday to see how it went! Ella and I waited patiently at the end of the driveway for the bus to pull up (the bus was a little loud for El)! We were happy to see a huge smile on Em's face as she got off the bus and ran up the drive! She had a great day and met a few new friends! She seems to really like it....hopefully it will stay that way!

The New Kid ~

Unlike every other child in Limestone County, Emma has been looking forward to today ALL summer......the first day of school! She is in the 3rd grade at Julian Newman Elementary! You would think that she would have been a little (or a lot) nervous about being the new kid at a new school, but not Emma! She walked straight in, introduced herself to the teacher (Mrs. Carter), put her things away, and took her seat.......smiling the whole time! Her motto is "new girl makes friends"! With that attitude, I have no doubt that she will make lots of friends!

Summer Summary ~

Since I'm obviously so far behind on updating, I figured I'd try my best to sum up our summer and then move on with all that's happening now! We are finally getting settled here in Athens! Our "minor renovations" on the house turned into months of chaos, so it took us a little longer to settle in than usual! Jeb is officially a licensed practicing pharmacists! He loves his job at Westside Pharmacy and seems to be fitting in great! The girls are loving the house and the yard! Emma takes El outside every afternoon to play, which is a nice break for me! Ella will stand at the blueberry bush for hours, picking and eating blueberries! I posted a slide show of the progress on the house. We have enough to keep us busy for a few years but it already looks tons better than it did when we started! There are lots of pictures so sit back and enjoy!
