It's been awhile

I know it's been awhile since I last posted. Our summer has been jammed pack with things to do every weekend.  We always have Connor's karate on Saturday's. He just tested last weekend for his nexy belt (purple I believe) and will see if he get's it tomorrow at his awards ceremony. Other than that I have just filled our weekends will plans with friends to do fun things!!

We went camping at the end of July with two other families to O'Neil Park in Orange County. It was ok. It was hot and there is not much to do there except hike. They did have a playground we took the kids to play on and they had a blast. We went with Melanie and her fiance Ozzy and the Marshall's (friends from high school). It was fun and we had 7 kids between the three of us. I would camping with this group again but try some place different. :)

A couple weeks ago I got to take Connor to Knott's Berry Farm with his friend Nolan and Nolan's mom Nicole. We had a great time! There was hardly anyone at Knott's that day (it was a Monday) but Nicole can't walk a lot due to arthiritis so we got an electric wheelchair and a front of the line pass. :) It was so cool!! We went on a ton of rides including Big Foot Rapids twice!! Jaguar (a roller coaster) like 5 times. I think that was the boys favorite ride. Well that and the swings and the pirate ship (which they were able to ride without us) were the big hits of the day. ha-ha

We even got to go to Soak City a couple of times this summer. One time we went with Connor's friend and this past time we met the girls old preschool teacher Miss Tracey and got to swim and have fun for a few hours. It's been a fun and activity filled summer!!

But alas, that is all coming to an end. School starts Monday. Connor is starting 2nd grade. And the girls will be in Transitional Kindergarten. Thankfully (for me) St. Pius got so many kids to start - they are having two classes!! Yeah. That means I get to separate the twins! Double yeah. I even got to pick which teacher each one would have. I'm very excited for this new year. Hopefully the kids are too. (yeah right!) Connor will be making his first reconcilliation and eucharist this year so it'll be an exciting time for him. And the girls will be starting a new school. Although some of the kids from their preschool are coming to St. Pius so they do know some of them (ok 2 lol!). Wish me luck on Monday. I'm not sure who is going to be crying more. Me or the girls!!!
