Right now....

1. I'm thankful that I survived my first day back at work. I'm working as a substitute teacher for the first time since I was pregnant with Sage. Today, I was in for a phys. ed teacher and it went surprisingly well.

2. I'm craving milk chocolate M & Ms.

3. I'm thankful that we're getting into a routine (somewhat) for school and that things went well with me at work today.

4. I can't believe how gorgeous the weather has been. We actually went to the beach today after school. This is unheard of. We've never gone to the beach in September. Ever! Let alone on Sept. 15th! Crazy. But in a very good way. ;)

5. I'm glad that we started allowances for the kids and that Sage and Jonah worked together to purchase this inflatable killer whale on Sunday at a garage sale. I'm still amazed that I managed to blow it up at the beach (but it took a while.)

6. I'm loving that these two are best friends and have been for the past five years (since day one of kindergarten.)

7. I'm glad that we signed Jonah up for soccer. He seems very natural at it and enjoys it immensely.

8. I'm also glad that Cameron is coaching Jonah's team. It's great to see these two like this.

9. I'm amazed that I have my kids' back to school photos scrapped already. But I had the incentive from MSS-- it was this month's DT challenge.

10. I'm going to get off the computer and go and finish handstitching the binding on my quilt.

Thanks for looking!

I love the fact that my kids get an allowance ..well only because it to me teaches them 1. how to save 2. not to buy everything .. and well because they do NOT like not having their own money lol. If that makes sense ..

love the LO and the pics ..

Glad to hear that going back to work went well! Love that whale that they bought together (and can't believe you went to the beach!). Great pictures!

What a great post Leigh, thanks for sharing. I especially love the pic of Cameron and Jonah - that's scrap worthy. Hooray on surviving, and even thriving on your 1st day back!
