Its been almost a month since I wrote, as I tend to do in that last month of the summer. We have been super busy, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
So here is a recap of what’s been going on lately!
- We became members of the Riverbanks Zoo. We had wanted to take the kids when Jake’s mom came to visit, and we found it was cheaper for us to get a family membership versus getting in for 1 day. The family membership lets us get in as many times as we want, 1 free admission to the Lights before Christmas at the zoo, and visitors passes for friends or family who come to visit. I am excited because its good until next summer, so we can visit the botanical gardens during different seasons.
- G-Mac/Memaw (Jake’s mom) came to visit and meet the kids. We had a great time, and enjoyed showing her around our home and all our favorite things. We took her to church with us, which was special to me…because our church is so special to us. She loved getting to finally meet the kids, and the kids loved her as well. They did some crafts together while Jake and I were at work, and ended her visit bowling as a family with their “Uncle Robert”
- Jake and I started a couples class at church. Its a five week long “enrich and prepare” class, and I am so glad we are doing it. Its actually called the “newly wed-nearly wed” class (no, we aren’t engaged…yet.) I really do love our teachers, Rachel and Michael and I am looking forward to learning from them. We actually have already benefited a little from what we learned just this past Sunday.
- The kids started school, so pics of that are forthcoming. Katie is in 10th, Jonathan in 4th and Natalee in 2nd. This week starts their second full week of school and we are slowly getting the routine down.
Posts coming up – photo dump from Disney and first week of school, more about the class Jake and I are taking, some new recipes we have been trying and of course – college football!
