Tuesday Tidbits

Let's just go on and assume that I wrote this Tuesday instead of Wednesday morning. Clearly, working is kind of kicking my tail.

Considering BRian has gotten up at 3:00 a.m. the last 4 days, I'd say it's kind of getting the best of him as well.

I've been doing some big batch editing projects (free-lance) and it is messing with my head big time. I find myself watching TV and trying to straighten lines, add some exposure, etc.

I wore white cropped pants to work yesterday - first time wearing white on the bottom. Yes, I know I'm years behind on that trend. I spent the day terrified I was going to have a spill, but they managed to stay white all day long.

Camden after his first day of school - "I want to stay 11 forever. It's old, but not OLD."

Rory followed with this, "And I wish I could be younger so I could do all the things I used to do . . . . like take a nap."

Rory came home yesterday bragging that she learned the names of all 7 consonants (a.k.a. continents) in her very first history class.

And one more Rory-ism. I love how at the beginning of the school year, her teacher is just her hero. All she can do is tell me stories about Ms. H this and Ms. H that. It's so cute.

I forget how much of a transition it is to get back into the school routine. They both love school, but the afternoons/evenings are always a little rough.

We made a very fast trip to Missouri Saturday - lots of our family was able to be gathered for the afternoon. It made for a crazy finish to a crazy week, but there is nothing better than gathering around the table chatting with parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins for a couple of hours. The kids were so happy playing nerf gun wars that we didn't even stop and take one single picture of them. We did gather for a group photo right at the end of our stay.


And I may not have taken back-to-school pics this year, but Brian would really like you to know that he did take this picture so the event is documented.


Working from home today so I may be back at lunchtime to post pictures for Wordless Wednesday.
