Back to School We Go!

Suddenly, we were back in the hallways of the schools!
Setting up Ella's locker (we had two days to work on this...and decorating lockers these days is no joke so it's a good thing :-) at the junior high and meeting Preston and Addie's teachers at Fielder. We knew we loved Preston's teachers since we have had them both before, but didn't know anything about Addie's and were happy to find that the seemed great! I also got to bring home my packets of forms to fill out and sign :-), but we stopped for our traditional ice cream after so it made everything else A-Ok.

I found a Wii basically for free the Saturday before school started and Preston was beside himself with joy! We had heard Big Lots had cheap games so that was our next stop and although he was pretty excited about a recliner with cupholders, no games were to be found. Mike found a good deal on Craigslist for some Mario games and the kids were in heaven the rest of the weekend. As an added bonus we now have a great bribery tool for good behavior at school :-).

We also had our fancy back to school dinner on Sunday night (shrimp scampi this year with our favorite asparagus and brownies and ice cream for dessert) and set our new goals for the school year. Everyone did pretty good with accomplishing all their goals except me...I better get on my A game this year! Mike gave the kids each a blessing that evening, we took baths and dried their hair so it would be beautiful the next day and then we all tried to get some sleep!
