Let's Get Random

Emmy and I have decided to start a new tradition.  Each time we get together we take a picture of us together.  So far, we have managed it.
I finally got Emily all settled at the right school.  The middle school.  And now am receiving emails from the elementary school.  I wonder when I will start receiving truancy notices.

My car battery died on the first day of school.  Dead.  Nothing.  Luckily everyone was safe and at school.  And I was fortunate enough to be at a gas station.  I got a jump, but it was only enough to get me home.  I needed a new battery.   I got the new battery, and now...my AC --in the car--doesn't work.  D'oh!

I got to see my little baby grand nephew.  He's so sweet.  But, I just might be a little biased....what do you think?

I haven't used them yet, but I bought some Nestle dark chocolate chips.  I want chocolate chip cookies now.
We watched the International Space Station fly over two nights in a row.  With the binoculars, you could actually see the outline of it.  It was quite cool.  Ryan was confused by it for it a while.  He kept thinking we were going to a rocket.  It took some serious explaining that it was not only NOT a rocket, but also in OUTER space. 

So far, my freedom and quiet---the kids returning to school--has been very busy.  I don't expect it to calm down any.  My life is never calm.  I always have somewhere to be, something to do.  I just get to do it sans kids.  Yes, that is a blessing.  But it is also bittersweet.

He's VERY cute!
And I agree, a bittersweet blessing.

Emmy said...

Yep definitely cute and I love his expression :)
I like our new tradition.. speaking of when are we getting together again?? :)
Oh if you start getting truancy notices I will scream for you!

Oh, so cute! The car battery stinks, and even more so the AC. I have been without for three years now, and am hoping we can get it fixed this year. Fingers are crossed! Although the year is mostly over. Sigh. It is good to be busy, and I find I get a lot more done without the kids around, so I hope the same is for you.

You two are so cute- and your nephew is adorable!

Glad you got the school issue sorted out.

That would be cool to see flying over head!

Such a great tradition. Sometimes the people you are closest too, you don't even have pictures with! Especially if you are always behind the camera!
