First day of school 2009

My little girl is off to High school I could just cry thinking about it. I did pretty good this year holding it all in, last year I was a hot mess taking Reagan to kindergarten. But this year I did alright Karly and Jillian both started and are in different classes. Remi and Hannah are back in the same class this year, 1 year apart wasn't too bad. It was a good first day. Reagan crashed as soon as she got home took a little nap and then did her homework, it is 7:35 now and Remi is still working on hers. She is so behind I don't know how she will ever catch up. I am praying something clicks this year and she "gets it" I hate seeing her struggle year after year. She is such a creative, sweet, funny girl it is terrible seeing her not do as good as she could.

Me and My Teddy Bear

Reagan had a show yesterday, it is the last weekend before school starts, I got to go with my girls and my mom to the movies, and watch G Force. It was a cute little movie I wont buy it but the kids had fun. Than we picked Laura and Jack up and headed over to Reagan's show. Then to mad house Kohl's to use ours Kohl's cash and dinner and home. We got home and Casey heated the spa up for the kids and my mom came over, I made a yummy peach cobbler and vanilla ice cream. It was a good day. Today we did the church thing, and rested. I am doing haircuts later today. My eye is still messed up :( 1 more day till the new school year..

Pool Update

Here is my little precious ones yesterday playing outside enjoying the hot summer sun.. Remi lets them run in the water and they go down the slide while she soaks them, I should have got a pic of Jaycie swinging and Remi soaking her. she loved it too!

OK after running the pool for 48 hours and the water not getting any better, we drained and it Casey cleaned it and now filling it back up.. UGH what a waste. Im scared to get the SCE bill.. We basically wasted 3 days trying to filter the disguisting green water. I will feel much better swimming in clean new water, now if we can get the chemicals right filling it back up. Casey is headed to the pool store to get conditioner, chlorine and whatever else it takes. I would much rather buy some stampin' up or kids some school shoes..

First day of my new Job

my cutie pie babies are WALKING!!!

Ok the teachers had to go back to work today, and since I am watching 2 kids of a teacher I started my new job too.. I must say it went really well. Rainy was a big help for me, Jaycie took a 2 hour nap and Hailey took a nap in Rainys arms, I hope to get them all on a schedule once the kids start back next week. I think it is going to work out smoothly just nervous about dropping kids off and picking them up I wont have enough room in my van :( maybe my husband can leave a few minutes later for work and drop a couple of them off for me.. I really enjoy taking them so I dont want to miss out on that :(

Another thing going on in the Smith house is a broken pool :( but got it fixed and working on filtering out all the algea now I was blessed today with the bill being 130.00 LESS than what I had expected!@ probably going to cost me that to run it and get it cleaned out lol.. but I am hoping by the weekend the kids can swim again my tan is fading fast.

Third thing is my middle daughter is starting middle school we and my oldest is starting HIGH SCHOOL! We had orientation tonight I couldnt be at both so Laura took Rainy to hers and I went to Remi's, she got her first locker, and to my surprise she was able to unlock her lock after only a coupld tries. :'( my baby is growing up.. thanks for reading my simple fun life..

Back To School Shopping

Well what a day shopping, yesterday we hit Old Navy they are having their friends and family sale, we saved $80.00 with the coupon, then went to Justice and Kohls, the girls got some great things, the Lord blessed our shopping day with some great deals. We were considering soem $39.99 converse, when the lady that works there came to us with some for $10.00! I was so happy and we had a 20% off coupon so we got them for only $8.00! I was really stressing the drive home hitting traffic but we got home in record time no slow downs.. YEAH I love shopping!
