week in review

what a busy week. first off we celebrated labor day at aunt dori's house. as always a wonderful time was had by all. the best beans ever!!! (not to mention, sorry mother kendig, probably the best hamburger too). too bad we had to cut the party short because, boo hoo, school was starting in the morning. it was also ems bday.(see earlier post for photo montage through the ten years of ems life.)
em and thomas started on tuesday. em is in the 5th grade and has mrs. woinarowicz. (i call her mrs. w.) thomas has mrs. leard. both kiddos seemed very happy with their teachers.

allie started school on wednesday. she was not very happy to be going to teeny tots. she really liked her year at methodist. we did also, but love tiny tots and wanted her to have a go with mrs. shelly and the other lovely ladies there. em and thomas both had mrs. shelly and loved her. she went and really liked it. she has a little friend keely and wants to go back next week.
thomas finally lost a tooth!!! he was really nervous about starting 1st grade with all of his teeth. I guess this really didn't happen this week. we were at disneyland for a final summer hurrah, standing in line at splash mountain. i asked him to let me wiggle the tooth. it was barely hanging on, i gave it a little twist and it was out. he was so happy. wasn't too happy about the gold coin the tooth fairy left. most kids get like five dollars he tells me. i told him that gold was $800 an ounce so really it was worth more than a dollar. he bought it.

jills has been standing and taking steps. she just might be walking before she turns one. she climbs up everything. oh, right now she is stuck on the table. she loves the twenty pound bag of dog kibble (yes, i call it kibble, it sounds better saying she loves eating dog kibble rather than dog food) that daddy brought home for rex. she thinks it is her own personal bag of snacks and helps herself to it several times a day.

finishing off the week with chris' visit to the "wart dr." and him getting very angry with her because she doesn't know how to get rid of his warts and she kept calling him mr. kendig. me going to the doctor because my feet don't work so well and my doctor had no idea what is wrong with them. i can only wear flips flops.

soccer offically starts tomorrow and so no more weekend trips to p.s. too bad because we had a glorious weekend there over labor day. it even rained one day.

here's to a sucessful new school year!!!

Tom's face in the first picture is great. What a special boy!

I am glad Allie liked teeny tots after all. I was worried.

I am jealous that Thomas got a gold coin. Pirate treasure!

Those were good beans and burgers! I can't fit into my pants after last week...seriously.

We miss you guys!
