Enjoyed the special donut breakfast at school this morning with the boys. Elise helped work it with student council (and DeAnne too).

Fall break is over and I think the kids are ready to get back to a schedule. We had a couple of lazy weeks. We did the museum haunted house, Conner Prairie, Headless Horseman hayride, cousin sleepover, Wonder-lab, pumpkin carving, trunk or treat at a couple of churches, family photos, lots of pajama family time, and just plain outside fun playing.

Another season of Blaze (junior running club) has come to an end. David was a coach and Emily was a junior coach. Elise did great and she is really working on pushing herself out of her comfort zone. Emerson won the trophy for the little kids' high miles. He ran 40.5 this season and Elise ran 40.1. Emersonís only goal was to beat Elise. He wants to run faster and further than her. Sibling competition runs high with him.

A little over a month ago we started giving our kitchen a facelift with new countertops and backsplash. We still need new hardware on the cabinets and some little things, but we are well on the way. David and I took on painting the downstairs, stairway, and upstairs hallway this week. Open concept floor plan... no real stopping and starting points so we just ran with it and painted everything. In the couple of months before we painted the laundry room, pantry, and downstairs bathroom. We still have a few more rooms to work on.

Busy week... Emily ran her final run with middle school cross country. She ran varsity at county and her team placed second. Emerson and Elise ran against other Brownsburg running groups. Emerson placed 7th for the 1 mile boys. Elise beat her own personal best. Elise had her final grade school performance and did great. Well Eli had to go watch and cheer everyone on; the hard part of being the youngest.

First day of 8th grade, 5th grade, and kindergarten. I helped the kids find their classroom this morning at the elementary school and Emerson said he loved riding the bus. He was all smiles when I saw him. I have a little break at home with Eli and then I volunteered to help with kindergarten lunch. So, letting go is not my strength.

As we are starting to prep for school starting next week, I look back on all the fun we have had this summer with these crazy kids. There were moments I thought I may lose my mind with these crazy kids, but it has been wonderful. We have had a ton of pool days, Museum days, Conner Prairie days, and friend time. We also celebrated birthdays and had friends over for fun days. Elise went to Springhill and received recognition for her friendship with others. The boys went to a preschool VBS that Emily and I helped with. Add in the fair, Kids Planet, the big 3 attending a VBS, and lots of fun relaxing at home and we will call it the summer of 2018.

We had a great family getaway to Michigan. We had perfect beach days, explored the town and around the area, and got to pick peaches and blueberries (pretty sure Eli ate his weight in fruit).
