Time to sit back and have a cup of coffee

Back to the Grind and catchup

Today was my first day back and surprisingly getting up at 6:20 am was not too difficult.  I can attribute that to my wonderful children who have kept me on schedule ALL summer long though.  It was a good day back and fun to see all my co-workers.

Today, I finally found a new dance studio for Caitlyn.  We have been fortunate to have a dance teacher come to the daycare during the day and teach her but now that she is going to Kindergarten we have to find another place.  I had no idea how hard it would be to find an open spot at a good time in a good area that I wouldn't have to drive all over town for!  Today I finally found it!!  She will dance 45 minutes every Monday.  Now we have to buy new shoes (ballet and tap) and I'm sure she has out grown her tights too.  She keeps getting soooo tall.

Our precious Sadie (chocolate female lab puppy) is home now and doing so good.  Brent keeps saying, "She's adorable."  We have started feeling her teeth more and Brent is a big fan of that though.  It is cute to see Sadie attacking Brent because I know she isn't hurting him.  He is laughing so hard, not sure if he likes it or not.  She is breaking us in good with all her puppy accidents!  Caitlyn keeps bringing her toys from her room and saying that she doesn't like them anymore and Sadie can have it.  She is so sweet!

Caitlyn and I have been reading a chapter book together, Ramona and Beezus.  It brings me so much joy to know that she can comprehend and finds enjoyment in reading.

Caitlyn lost her tooth.  My baby!  She is 5-1/2.  I can't believe it.  I will have to tell more about it because what she wants to do with her tooth fairy money is a post in itself!
