Reminiscing Summer at the Beach

Well, Labor Day is around the corner which means to me that summer is over. I wouldn't mind getting some cooler weather here soon. Here are a few scrapbook LOs of our trip to the beach (Nags Head, NC)


This is my friend, Sasha's little boy, Josh. I LOVE this picture of him.

Kite flying on the beach...what could be better?

First Day of School

Parker's big day is next week. Today he was happy to say "see ya" to the girls.

Lining up

Sidney waiting....and waiting....

The girls have to wear red, white or navy polo shirts. Talk about easy school shopping. (But not as much fun)

It's the first day of school...the day the girls have been looking forward to for so long. I enrolled them in a public charter school called Legacy Traditional. They have to wear "uniforms" and its a bit of a different carriculum than public school. It'll be a little challenging but I think they'll do just fine. Problem is there was some construction delay in the new campus (this is only their second year running) so until all the buildings are complete the school was forced to split the school into 2 half day sessions for a few weeks. The girls are in the PM session which is from 11:40 - 2:40. Since the kids all get up around 6:30 there was a lot of anxious waiting around all morning. Sidney wore her backpack at 9 and wouldn't take it off. Their first day went really well. They were both happy and talkative on the way home from school. I was so releived!!

Losing it

The girls lost the exact same tooth only two days apart from each other. Crazy,hugh considering they're 19 months apart. It's a busy week for the tooth fairy!

My scrapbook layouts

I finally unboxed my scrapbook stuff so I've been scrapbooking like crazy lately. For me its great therapy. Something that makes me sane while Josh is away. These are our summer photos. Several of these were done for challenges in my myspace groups.

A day with family

Cute Parker having fun.

Mason and Josh in the lake.

Jesse, Parker, Sidney, Kenzie and Elizabeth toweling off.

See what I mean...

We took a much needed Saturday off to visit Pete and Charmaine's family in Safford. It was so nice to swim in the lake and let the kids get reacquainted with their cousins. The more time I spend here in Arizona I'm finding there is a little beauty around us. Its not all cactus and sage brush. (Well there's still a lot of that.)
