The things kids do

Kids are crazy. That's just all there is to it.

Recently Abigail decided she wanted to try a different kid of smoothie.

So I made it for her.....


Yep. That's it. She wanted a pizza smoothie. So that's what she had for breakfast.

I threw it in the blender....

Added some water and mixed it up.

Looks yummy, right?

Here goes nothing.....

She actually said it wasn't bad. She said it kind of tasted like soup. Maybe that's because I was nice enough to heat the pizza up and use warm water.

She's crazy, but she drank most of it.

But, then again, she hasn't asked for another. Ha!

Labor Day Weekend

It was a busy first week of school. As you can imagine, there's a ton of paperwork to fill out, even though I filled out a ton online before school started.

We spent the week trying to keep track of what time school starts on which day and when it lets out.

We were all looking forward to a long weekend with plenty of relaxing, but at the last minute, we found ourselves participating in a soccer tournament.

The tournament was in San Antonio which makes it a long drive for us. But, at least this time it wasn't on the far west side so that helped.

Addison's team played in one game on Saturday and two games on Sunday. It was so hot and exhausting for the girls.

On Sunday she got knocked down and managed to scrape her knee all up.....even with the brace on!!

She's talented like that.

She caught a little nap on the way home.

Later that evening we headed to the Gunner Thames Memorial Rodeo. It's great to be entertained for the evening and also help out a good cause.

On Monday we just kind of hung around the house, relaxed a little, and geared up for the weeks ahead. It's back into the full-on crazy, busy schedules.

Back to school

Wow, things get busy and time sure does get away from me!!

The kids are back in school now. But before they headed back, Dax wanted to do one last something-fun. Only Addison and Kirsten decided to go, but we went to Six Flags Fiesta Texas for the day.

Dax and Kirsten spent the day riding the rides.......

........while Addison and I spent most of the day in the water park trying to escape the heat.

We had a good time, and then they started school on Monday.

I can't believe they are Sophomores this year!!

There are lots of great things in store for them. Like the driver's ed that will be starting soon (even if Dax and I aren't ready for it!)

We wish them the best of luck in school this year. We're looking forward to a great year free from the drama that last year included.
