As a side note, I thought I would also mention that this week is the first we've had in (literally) a year with temps NOT hitting the 100's every day! It has been SO nice. And when Fall officially started this year I am not ashamed to admit that I did a Happy Dance right in the middle of the office! : ) I <3 fall!!

The Latest News
It is almost impossible for me to believe that I’m sitting here writing yet another blog post on yet another Sunday night…..but it’s true. I am really not used to time flying by this quickly! It’s already been 2 weeks since I’ve last posted??? Is that possible?! How do working folks do this??? I’ve forgotten!!! LOL
So, our week was relatively uneventful. School for Ryann & Kamri, work for Mommy, & lots of play time for Mr. Grant. Since the last time I posted, we’ve had some new developments. We found out that Ryann was elected to represent the 4th grade students on Student Council!! We were SOOOO excited to learn this good news. She was so happy to learn that her fellow classmates had selected her. So, now we’ll be mixing in STUCO activities with everything else. This past Friday was the last day of the 1st six weeks, so we’ll be reporting grades soon!
There is a tennis academy just down the road from my work and I’m going to look into lessons for Ryann…..that is, if she would even enjoy playing again. And my boss and her family have horses and participate in rodeos all year long. Since Kamri is mildly obsessed (and that’s putting it mildly….heehee) with horses, I thought I’d let her learn to ride. I’m hoping that this is something she’s really going to enjoy. We’ve tried dance, gymnastics, and cheer with her and none of them have been able to keep her attention for very long. She gets bored after only a few weeks and then it’s impossible to keep her cooperating. I really think that this is something she could be good at, so I’m willing to give it a try. She doesn’t know about it yet though. She’s going to be SO surprised!
Grant received a wonderful report from the doctor for his 18 month check up. He weighed in at just over 25 pounds, which is perfect for his age. And fortunately he only had to get his flu shot that day. Which is actually more fortunate for his Daddy than for him……because Dad almost passed out just having to sit through one shot. Bless his heart.
Other than that, there really isn’t much going on here. We are all still adjusting to Mommy being gone – but everyone is doing really well. We’ll have this down in no time.
Hope everyone is well.
Love to all,
