ok, i’m a little behind… 4th of july

last fourth of july,  we saw that there was an event going on at the peoria sports complex.  we thought that five dollars for jeff, and 5 dollars for me (kids 12 and under free) didn’t sound too bad.

they had bounce houses, music, water slides, and OH YEAH, food.  the Fireworks show had music to go with it. 

the one IMPORTANT thing that we seemed to have not taken into account was that it was summer in phoenix.  so, sitting outside was not really fun.

so, THIS YEAR, we got SMART.  we bought a shade tent from costco in preparation for this event.


the kids had a BLAST on all the water slides (and in the canopy)

luke started preschool on monday, august 22. he was SO excited to go back.

the week before school started, his teachers were scheduling in home visits.  our turn was on wednesday morning. luke loved having his teachers come to his house.  his new teacher this year is MRS. MELISSA.  she just moved her a month ago from florida.

then on friday, they had an open house for both am and pm classes.  the kids had a lot of fun in the classroom.

luke said when he got home “I am so excited for the second day of school.”

he has so much fun at school.  but as soon as he gets off the bus, he gives sara a great big hug.  he misses sara when he’s gone.
