Lookie who's Back

It has been almost a whole year since I've posted on the blog. Lest you forgot, Tim's computer has been on it's deathbed and could not be healed. Since it never got better, we decided to divorce it and get a better, more healthy computer. Now I'll be able to start documenting our exciting life again!

I wanted to start blogging again last week for the kids first day of school, but I'm off by 7 days.

We'll still start from there though!

McGwire is in his final year of Middle school. The big 8th grade!
He woke right up, showered and came downstairs to eat without me having to yell even once!
Do you believe in miracles??

 After he ate his breakfast, he jumped right on his ipod.
Aaaah! THAT's why he got up so early!
Oh, and he realized he couldn't wear teeshirts to school, so he changed into a collared shirt so he wouldn't be sent home on his first day of school!

He was supposed to use his last year's backpack and was also supposed to get eveyrthing ready the night before, but apparently he didn't get the memo! He couldn't find his backpack ANYWHERE that morning so he had to carry all of his stuff in plastic bags!

Lilah was also raring to go that morning as well. She was so excited about starting kindergarten!
Here she is all bright and bushy tailed, ready to choose what cereal she wanted to eat.

As you can see, she chose "colored rice crispies" as she calls them!

Here she is modeling her cute little outfit!
I'm in love with that skirt!

I am SOOOOOOOOO not a fan of character shoes but Lilah was SOOOOOOOO excited to find these gems and I couldn't bear to break her little heart. They're not the worst things I've ever seen but I certainly wouldn't have chosen them for her. Hey,  at least they don't light up, right?!?!?!! 

I HAD to get her this cute lunchbox and then I HAD to get her name embroidered on it. I mean, heaven forbid she left it somewhere and then no one would know who to return it to, right??

She had to wear this sign all last week in case she got lost.

After the kids left, I ran to the gym, ran a few errands and then came home to a nice quiet CLEAN house and just basked in all of my "no kids at home" glory!
It was short lived.

I sure did miss them while they were gone, though!
