First Day of Preschool

Sydney and Audrey had their first day of Preschool on Tuesday. This is the day I've been waiting for (I get to be alone for a couple of hours a day!!!). They were really excited...although Audrey seemed a little overwhelmed and looked like a deer in headlights. Audrey insisted on bringing her Strawberry Shortcake backpack! Sydney was really ready to be the big sister and help Audrey out.

Quilt Class

This post is mainly for my mom...I took a quilt class yesterday, it was a series on what to do with your scraps. Two of the blocks I made in the class and then I made 2 more this morning. Here's how it turned out....

1st Day of School....Finally!

I just returned from dropping the kids off at their first day of school. Katie started 1st grade at her new school and Charlie started 3rd grade. This morning Katie told me that her stomach hurt because she was a little scared! Both kids are going to Buena Vista (the Spanish Immersion School) and are excited to be at the same school. It sure felt wierd walking two BIG kids into their classes today. They grow up too fast, don't they?

What Have We Been Up To???

Last weekend we went on a little day trip to Roseburg. We hiked Susan Creek Falls. Notice the 2-year old had to carry everbody's water....she insisted, I swear! Aunt Emily spent the enjoyable day with us....she needed a serious nap when we returned!

The cuties!

Then we went to Wildlife Safari. It was a great day!

We've also been canning pickles. I loved this picture of the pickles soaking in my sink!

Sliced and ready to go in the jar. Up next....pears, then salsa!
