School is in session...

... and that about sums it up. The kids have been in school for almost a whole month now. We are getting into the fall routine. Trying to get homework done in a timely fashion (ha ha ha!) and getting the calendar filled up. There has already been a school project; it was turned in today. And already have a field trip scheduled. Both kiddos are really liking school too. And that helps a lot!! Brandon's teacher even made a point to send note saying how much he enjoys having Brandon in class.

I have taken some of the extra time that I now have for myself. After the kids get on the bus, I having been walking each morning. The first 2 weeks, it was almost 1.75 miles. Last week I added the "short loop" around the neighborhood, which is  about 1/2 mile. So that is approximately 2.25 miles! It has been quite enjoyable. Especially last week since the mornings had been rather brisk. And it looks like I might have an occasional walking partner. My neighbor around the corner caught me the other morning and asked if I would like some company. She substitute teaches at the elementary school, so it would be hit or miss. But hey, a walking buddy is great anytime.

So, really, that's it. Just every day, regular stuff.

And since it has been a while for pictures, here you go.... all 18 of 'em.

Is there a Scout in the house?

As of yesterday, now we have two scouts!
 And he is so excited!!!

Can't you tell!?

Boy Scout popcorn, Pine Car Derby, Den meetings and Pack meetings and all kinds of fun stuff coming up.

Pretty soon Jess will start meeting again with her Girl Scout troop. She has been asking for weeks what day her troop meetings will be. After all, she is a Junior Girl Scout now!
