Do you ever have so much going on that you feel like you have nothing to blog about? Between open houses, football practice and games, band, etc...we have been busy! It has struck me just how much I missed last year being in China. I felt like I never caught up and I'm sure I was right! Even though I've been busy, though, I'm pretty sure it's nothing you'd be interested in reading about!
We do have something exciting happening next week, however! The girls will be back in school! I cannot tell you how ready the three of us are. Since the boys have gone back to school, the girls are constantly asking about their school. Thankfully, the countdown is on! We went to their classroom today to "meet" their teacher. This is where the "full circle" comes in.
Here are the girls and Mrs. Abadie:
And here is Mrs. Abadie with Cade when he was 4!
I'm sure if you've watched the news, you know that tomorrow is the 7th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. That means that today is the 7 year anniversary of my grandmother's death, and 6 days from now is the 7 year anniversary of our house fire.
I went through my pictures to find one of Cade and Mrs. Abadie and saw these:
On the porch, watching the wind from Katrina.
and our big aftermath:
I wasn't planning to post about hurricanes and fires, but since everyone is home from school today because of our impending Hurricane Issac, it's kind of on my mind :)
I can't believe how much has happened in 7 years!!!
Hopefully, I won't have any exciting pictures to share with you of Hurricane Issac. I'm not expecting it to be a huge deal, but I do think our electricity might be out for a while :( ugh!!!
I am happy to have a couple days with no school, football or baseball to try to get things caught up!! I just made a big batch of chocolate chip cookies, so we're ready for the storm!!
