Football Season!!!

This is our 1st year putting Brenden in football. I'm not sure I like it much; but he LOVES it!!! I think the coaches yell way too much and there is actual tackling amongst these 6 year olds. I thought it would be flag football- but nope full on tackle and gear! He does not seem to mind one bit. Maybe I'm oversensitive; lol... that was an understatement. ;) Anyway here are some pictures I took at yesterdays practice of our Tiger...

So many pictures to share... it's been a long time since I've blogged! ;) Shianne started guitar lessons and she is doing a fabulous job!!! She amazed me this morning while I was on the computer she just came in our room sat on our bed and just started playing! It sounded so beautiful that it lulled our Hailey dog to sleep. She had her 1st lesson yesterday and LOVES IT!!!

This girl loves her Dog!

This is Hailey as she was playing...

Okay... and isn't this the cutest desk chair ever? We found it at IKEA and Shianne has been without a desk chair for over a year. I think we now found just the right one! :)

Our big 4th grader Studying... lots more books this year and a lot more homework; desk chair was definitely in order. ;)

Jays Parents came to town a couple weeks ago and took us to the Sacramento train museum; it was very interesting. Here is Jimmy climbing aboard...

Jimmy and Grandpa...

Jimmy & Grandma...

And I'll leave you with a photo that I think turned out great of Downtown Sacramento... Great Town!!!

Til next time... and yes; there will be lots to share! Brenden just started Football and Jimmy just started Soccer! :)

Psalm 139: 23-24

"Search me, O God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way of everlasting."
Psalm 139: 23-24

This is my prayer this morning; thank you Lord for your precious word!

Getting Settled...

This morning was a special one! A morning to remember; walking my 2 oldest children to their 1st bus ride EVER to school. I swear I probably said the same things a million times in regards to how to use their tickets, where they should sit, where they should keep their tickets while at school, the cross streets they should get off at, NOT to get off the bus until they see me, what to do if they lose their tickets etc. I went on and on and on... I was such a nervous Mommy this morning; my husband had to tell me "Get it together Momma" with a smile on his face. I don't think I've ever been as scatter brained in my life; as I was this morning. It really is hard for me to realize how much they are growing up- in my eyes they are still so little. Shianne was so sweet, totally looking out for her little bro. ;)

School started yesterday up here; yes... we are now up North- we made it and are settling in. I think this place could grow on me; I really do miss my Mom though- we have talked just about everyday. The 1st day of school went fabulously for my 1st and 4th grader. When I dropped off Brenden, he was so excited and had no fear whatsoever. Then I dropped off Shianne and waited with her in her line; as I walked away she looked sooooooo nervous. I remembered being that girl, and just how scary it felt not quite knowing what to expect. I thought of her all day praying that the fear in her would subside. When I picked her up from school she was beaming!!! She had an AWESOME day, and was welcomed by so many people; including the principal. She looked so confident! Little Jimmy woke up yesterday and wanted to wear his new school clothes for homeschool. He even joined Brenden and Shianne for the traditional 1st day of school pictures. So, there you have it... settling in !
