August

In-between the time that I posted last and today, which doesn’t seem like a very long time, we’ve been on vacation and went school shopping! We went to St. Louis for our vacation and we had a lot of fun! We camped out at a KOA campground, which means cooking meals over a campstove and sleeping on cots and an air mattress that deflated in the middle of the night! We went to the zoo, the Arch, the Magic House, Grant’s Farm and the Cahokia Mounds which are just over the Mississippi River into IL. I won’t post all the pictures right now; that’s what Facebook is for! Hahaha!

The boys at the base of the Cahokia Mounds in IL. This is the biggest mound at 100 feet above the ground! All the mounds were built by hand over 600 years ago!

We went the last week of July and then when we got back home, we jumped into football practice and getting ready for school to start. It’s always bittersweet when they return to school. I like the alone time during the day when I’m not working and the ability to get caught up on what needs to be done…but I miss getting to spend time with them. As much as I complain sometimes, I love the little bundle of legs and feet and arms all over the place. 😀

They went back to school today and everyone was really excited! I can’t wait until they get home so I can hear all about it!
