1st Day of School

One of the bad things about living in the south is the heat, especially this year. I have not been outside a whole lot because it is miserable out there and being that I was pregnant for much of it makes it even worse.

With the heat comes higher electric bills. WOW this summer meant A LOT higher! I think this is the first month we have hit the 300 mark and I am really hoping it does not happen again!

But that is not the worst part of living in the south. What is even worse than those two things is that we start school sooooooooooooo early! I mean really, who starts school in August? Early August at that!!

WE DO!!! And I DON'T like it!!! I guess there is not much I can do about it besides be thankful that I am no longer going back to school on the working end. Whew I am so happy I am home with the kids (well.... most days).

Here are my big boys on the 1st day of school. They were at their dads for the 1st day this year but they sent me 1 picture. I will be taking more pictures Monday for the 1st day at my house (but don't tell the boys, they wont be happy about it).

Wow.... 10th grade and 8th grade. Where did the time go?

Two years from now I will have one starting his last year in high school and then one starting her 1st year in school (Pre-K). Two years after that I will have the same with two others.

2 growing girls!!

Kennedi had her 2 year appointment yesterday and of course I forgot my camera!

Anyway.. at 2 years Kennedi is
27.6 lbs
35 inches

She is doing a great job with her growth! I am not sure how since the kid doesnt eat but I guess itis working for her.

While we were there we did a weight check on Ryleigh. I was a little worried because of all the spitting up she has been doing. I mean like projectile spitting. I guess it is not really holding her back.

At birth she was
8 lbs 1 oz

When we left the hospital she was
7 lbs 3 oz

When we went back for her 1 week check (which was really about 11 days) she was
8lbs 3 oz

Yesterday at her weight check she was 3weeks and 4 days and she weighed
9 lbs 9 1/2 oz... WOW!!
