I'm back! A peek at our week

Hey guys! 
I guess I needed a little blogging sabbatical because I sure took a long one.
I feel like I should give you a proper recap of our summer with pictures and lots of details but I might need another sabbatical by the time I was done. 
So here's the quick recap. 
It was full of a whole lot of fun and a whole lot of crazy. 
We did swim team, park days, lots of vacations (June Lake, Sedona, The Grand Canyon, Big Sur, Yosemite) and lots of little things in between. 
In fact we almost checked off our entire summer fun list.

And now the kids are back in school! 
Which has posed a whole new kind of crazy (2 days a week I have 5 drop off/pick ups)!.

Mackenzie started first grade,

Wesley started kindergarten,

and Madelyn started preschool.
How and when did my kids get so big?! 

All the kids love their teachers and school but I think Madelyn won the prize for most excited. 
She really really wanted to go to kindergarten with Wesley but she settled for preschool and she loves it.

Is it just me or has going back to school been a big adjustment? 
My kids love school but they come home crazy. 
Like a mixture of energized but tired and not getting along. 
We have been in school for a week but it feels like it's been a month. 
I think I'm still getting used to them being back in school too. 
And making lunches. 
Uggg...making lunches! 

If you are a mom you need to read this book. 
so good! 

we took the kids to their first teppanyaki experience.
Kenzie and Wes loved it! 
And Maddie and Hudson were totally freaked out when the guy lit the food on fire.

My kids are super clumsy.
Someone is always hurt so our boo boo bags get used frequently. 
I've had it on my to do list to trash the old ones and make new ones (i reused the combination of rice and wheat berries inside).
I love checking projects off my to do list. 

A few days a week I take this bad boy (full of kids plus more kids on their bikes or scooters) to school for drop off/or pick up. 
I'm pretty sure I'm known as the crazy bike lady. 

Madelyn has a crazy love for mannequins. 
It's so funny. 
I think it may need it's own blog post. 

My cuddle bug. 
He's never far from me. 

We planted our fall garden. 

And I got to help throw a shower for this cute lady! 
I love babies!  

Growing up Aaron's dad took him out to breakfast before school on Friday mornings an this year Aaron started the tradition with our kids.
They think it's the coolest thing ever. 

I think my hair had a growth spurt.
I swear it grew a foot since I straightened it last (which may have been months ago!)

A special superhero cape for a special little boy who is now in the arms of Jesus. 

We survived the first week of school so we got pedis to celebrate. 

My church just started an 8 month theology class. 
I feel like I'm back at Biola (my college) and I'm loving it. 

Finished pic of the fall garden. 

So, how have you guys been??!
