Howdy Gang!

I hope this little note finds everyone doing well. To those in the US, I hope you are enjoying a great Labor Day!

Personally, I'm at work on this Labor Day, but that's OK. I am thankful for my job. Logan has school today anyway.

I actually have some pics to share, but am having some trouble uploading them. As soon as I can get past this hump, I'll be back to share.

I hope some others will pop on and share some snaps from their week this week.

Take care,
GiGi

My grandma passed last week, I am sad about it because she is gone, but am relieved that she is no longer suffering and in pain.

In more positive news.

Tomorrow is the start of a new school year, and Natalie has a new teacher which I am happy about, this is not normal for senior kindergarten but her teacher moved on to other things. The assistant teacher is still there so there is a familiar face, and I found her fantastic, hope her and the new teacher work well together.

Dana is also starting school tomorrow, she's going into her second year of high school (grade 10). She's grown a tiny bit over the summer and is slightly taller than me now, she's getting so big, but I think she is done growing in height.

Took some pictures of the dogs at the park today, hope to get them uploaded and shared soon.

Not sure if I shared this, it's from a week ago.

Amanda, I'm jealous you guys are starting school this week. Our teachers are still on strike, and our gov't has treated them so unfairly over the past several years that they are not inclined to give in much in negotiations. It's a huge mess. But how great about Natalie's teacher situation. And wow, grade 10, huh?

GiGi, hope you can get some pics uploaded soon, and that you're doing.

Maybe sharing some pics will cheer me a bit. I cannot even express the stress we're currently under due to a family situation. I just can hardly think of anything else. But sharing pics is always good. Sad

Here is Nora today learning a game I loved when I was a kid, called Rubik's Race. We just dug it out of the closet today.

And some pics from our trip to the beach last week.

Tracy- Sending you huge (((HUGS))) & prayers. I am hoping things start to brighten up. Still in love with #2.
Amanda- School starting is tough, but exciting. We are starting week 3 here. My kids are still loving it, thank goodness.
GiGi- hope to see some pics from you soon!

Here's a few from me.
Aug 30th-
Randy bought a new toy. It's loud and obnoxious. But, he's happy, so we are happy.

I am in love with Jamberry and I did my nails again.

Sept 1-
My sweet Willow. She was hanging out in bed with me yesterday morning. She loves to look out our window. We have a lot of birds and bees around the bush by our window.

We went to a pool party at a friend's house. Kids had a blast!

Ruthie and I spent some quality time together just shopping. She just looks so grown up to me in this pic. Breaks my heart.

Tracy - Been in your shoes before, seems every time our teachers contracts need renewing they strike here. As a parent it's frustrating.

Sadie - Love the Nails, I'll have to look into those. Kitty has grown quite a bit, what a cutie.

Amanda ... I am sorry to hear of your loss. No matter what, it's always hard to say good-bye. I hope this school year gets off to a GREAT start for both of your girls! I'm looking forward to pics from the dog park, but I love the snap of the kitty climbing the curtain! TFS!

Tracy ... it sure looks like your beach trip was just a photographer's dream! LOVE the sunset images! Sorry that things are so uncertain with your teachers. *sigh* That would leave me seriously on edge. (((HUGS)))

Sadie ... your Randy is just all boy, all the time, isn't he?! I just LOVE that! Ruthie is looking WAY too grown up. Tell her to slow down already! I hope they are both enjoying school. Is it bad that I wanna cuddle /w your Willow? Carlos is seriously allergic (Logan too), but I miss having a lap kitty.

Still working out my upload issues. Hope to have some pics to share later this week.

Thanks for sharing guys!

Best,
GiGi

Amanda- I too am sorry for your loss. I do understand what you mean by the relief of her no longer suffering.

Bus stop fun from me this morning!

One from last night. The sunset was amazing as always.

Amanda, I'm so sorry, somehow I missed the line about your grandma. My deepest condolences. Grandparents are so, so special; it's very hard to let them go. Hugs to you and your family.

Sadie, that sunset is stunning. And I love seeing you with your kiddos.

Sadie ... How is it possible you make even going to the bus stop look like a fun family outing??? Where were you when I was bored to tears at the bus stop as a kid? Smile

TFS,
GiGi

p.s. Tell Ruthie those earrings are the BOMB! Biggrin

GiGi- LOL! You crack me up! I just love taking pics of my babies. I will tell Ruthie!
Tracy- Your Micah and my Randy would just love each other! Love that rain poncho!

Here's two that I have recently edited, but took a while back. I've just started on some of my own personal stuff, starting back in May! These are saved from FB since I am at work so IDK about the quality!

Love those ones, Sadie! Beautiful! Ruthie looks like a little model!

Tracy - I love both of your shares from the walk, but the one of Micah alone in his batman raincoat is just SO precious! He looks like he's surveying Gotham, ready to protect and serve. Biggrin

Sadie ... Ruthie looks SO grown up in that photo! MAKE IT STOP! She's such a love any way around it, but it must tear at your heart to see her so big. And Randy ... I just wanna eat that boy up! He is just all boy all the time and as the mom of a boy, I can appreciate that! Biggrin

Here's one I took of Carlos last week:

We're ready for another season of TAMU football!

And here are a few from a judo belt test - these kids are like family and Logan actually got to help administer the test this time. I really need to run these through noise reduction, but I just don't have time for that right now.

This first kiddo is the instructor's son. I fully expect to see him at the Olympics some day! He's already started competing and he just gets better with every class.


This is the instructor's daughter. She has GREAT skill (& is such a love)! She is so mcuh like her mom, I just love her to pieces!

This is one serious judo family!

I am still having upload issues, so I'll have to come back later once I manage to get some of my family snaps up there.

Take care everyone!

GiGi- I always adore your Judo photos. I really want to get Randy into something like that, but we have nothing around here. It would be at least an hour drive....not what I want at all.
Ruthie is growing up so fast. I am not fond of it. I want that little spitfire girl who had pigtails and thought I hung the moon! LOL! Randy is a complete mess. He is hilarious, but such a sweetie as well. I don't know what I would do without either of them.

How funny Tracy! What a sweetie though. At least he knows how to make a woman happy right!?

One from last night. My babies snuggling with Daddy.

Another from last night- we went to the county fair parade. Enjoyed it even though it was hot!

And one from this morning. I think every Friday I will do a silly face photo with my kids to kick it off. Much needed giggles!

Tracy - what a sweetheart! Casanova? Maybe! But you just gotta love a tender heart like that!

Sadie - I sure love the one of Randall and the kiddos. Just melts your heart, right?! And I love the Funny Face Friday pics! Wish I had thought of that when Logan was younger - I think I would just get an eye roll now. Wink

Here are a couple from me:

my Loki turns 1 year old next week!

this is a craft project I've been trying to find the time to work on - got the prep work done next comes paint!

and a couple from soccer practice last night


Hope you guys have a great weekend!

Best,
