Another first day of school

Isn't this a gorgeous way to wake up!

My 3rd grader!

I can't believe my baby is a 3rd grader today! She is growing up so fast, and amazes me everyday. This morning she was up and dressed by 7 when I came out of the bedroom to see what she wanted to eat for breakfast! I drove her and all her supplies down the road to the brand new school...walked her to her room and waited with her until the teacher came in. She was happy to see there was one girl from her class from her 4 weeks at the other school here in Albuquerque. Starting off a new year in another new school with at least one familiar face makes a kids day!
I hope she has the best first day ever!

Jocey and I made it home!

Wednesday morning, my little toot and I boarded SW airlines to get ourselves back to Albuquerque! We had a nice flight, and she even had a bit of a nap for me, tucked into the Moby! When we headed down to claim our baggage, we were surprised to see daddy waiting for us(he had said he wasn't going to be able to be there due to being scheduled in the SIM)!!! So rather than hauling all the stuff myself(2 suitcases, car seat, stroller, carry-on, purse/diaper bag, 22 month old) and trying to hail a taxi(which for obvious reasons I was not looking forward to) daddy got to help!!
Since then, we have been readjusting our schedules! Getting used to being around each other again has been nice! Yesterday we went out shopping for a new mattress set for mommy and daddy, and found a great deal, and then of course needed a new comforter set(since we upgraded from queen to king!). I will post a pic as soon as the delivery guys make it(they have less than an hour....) and I get it all made up :)
Last night I went through the girl closets(they grew AGAIN, SHEESH) and got a nice laundry basket pile of things to take to the consignment store later, or tomorrow, and made room for fall clothes/school clothes!
It's nice to be home :)

Our Summer...

Since Jeremy has been in school and working so hard to learn his new aircraft, I decided to take the girls to nana and papa's for the summer!
We have been here since June 8, and now only have 5 days left to our trip.....WOW time flies!
We have been keeping busy with swimming lessons, hanging out with friends and family, and just plain enjoying the weather!
School starts for Chloe on the 20th, she is going to a brand new school that will opening up to new students in Albuquerque for this year, so that is pretty exciting! She has grown so much this summer, I can hardly keep up with her! Jocelyn is growing each and every day right before my very eyes too! She probably says at least one new word every day since we have been here....
