New Blog

So, you may have heard that we're building a house. Ya, I've heard that before, too - but this time it's really happening. I still can't believe it!

If you want to see the progress on our house, check out our new blog (linked at the left).

Gramps and Gram got a new puppy! His name is Maximus and he's three months old.
Rachael had a blast playing with him!
Kaitlyn... not so much.
He's much nicer when he doesn't give kisses!

Grade One

Well, Rachael has her real class now. Her teacher is Mme Lageaux, the same teacher she had the first couple of days of school, so that's nice. She's in a 1/2 split class - and there are only 5 grade 1's!!! I thought only 8 kindergarten kids in the k/1 last year was pretty small, but 5??? I guess that's just how the class sizes split up. I think they took the top 5 students and stuck them in with the grade 2's. Of course, I'm saying that because Rachael is stinking smart, but I think at least 3 of the other kids did really well in kindergarten last year, too. So far the days aren't too long for her. She said today felt like only a half day, so that's a good sign. Learning a new language can be tiring! But, so far so good!

First Day of Grade One

Hard to believe, but our little girl is off to Grade One! It was kind of a rainy start to the school year but at least it wasn't really hot after the lousy summer weather we've had. They put kids grade 1-5 in all the classes for the first few days of school, but she knew 3 or 4 of the kids in her class from last year, so that's good!

Cousins Day

It was a little chilly at the waterslides for Cousins Day this year. But at least there were no lineups!
Rachael really loved the tube ride. I think she would have gone on it all day if someone would have taken her!
Those swimming lessons she had in July really made her much more confident in the water.
Good thing Mom brought sweatshirts for keeping warm in between getting wet.
Rachael and Kaitlyn had lots of fun chasing bubbles with Amy.
