September 4th-10th, 2011
Sunday night Peter and I went on a date. (Yipee!) We went to see "The Help". I loved it. We both loved it. I cried. We both... well, I'll speak for myself :)
Monday was Labor Day. I prepped for school and tried to relax.
Tuesday was my first day of school! I celebrated my survival of said first day by having a girls' game night out. :)
Wednesday was Emily's first day of school! This was much more momentous than my first day. I never really understood why moms cried at their kids first day of school. I didn't cry... but I probably could have. I think it's easier since I work at her school. It's something that now I'm really thankful for. As a teacher, I always liked my school, but now that I'm a parent with a child at the school, I love it.
She loved pre-school (we had a sneaking suspicion that she would!) In fact, she loved it so much that we switched her from half day to full day so she'll be there three days a week, all day (8-3ish).

Thursday & Friday it was CRAZY hot outside still. Well, Friday was a little bit better... but to stay cool we had lots of picnics and activities outside on our front lawn this week where it's shaded.
Thursday I took the kids out for ice cream, then to the craft store & then we came home and painted in the front lawn. Lots of neighbors and passer-bys stopped to chat.
Lounging at home, Friday after school watching a TV show.
Saturday morning snuggles. (Noah was over it at this point.)
Saturday morning HAWKEYE FOOTBALL!!!
Saturday afternoon Pete went to work at Disney and we had a HAIL storm.
I'm not gonna lie... it was bizarre to see golf ball size hail in Long Beach. Fortunately it didn't cause us any harm. See you next week!
