I haven't posted for two weeks!  We've been enjoying the much cooler weather and finding our stride with school and activities. Last night, Bobby had his 40th birthday party (wow!) and I've already started buying a few Christmas presents. The rest of 2015 is going to be a whirlwind!

My 6th grade "team". 

Packing into dad's car. 

Molly got a black eye at recess. (Playground equipment). Notice the missing tooth!

Hy-Vee Aisles

My life has changed!  I have been introduced  to Hy-Vee Aisles. Last night, I stood in my kitchen and went trough my fridge and pantry and ordered my groceries for pick up. Since it was my big shopping trip, my order was over $100 which me ant no fees (under $100 it's $4.95 for delivery and $2.95 for pick up). It took 6 minutes today from the time I pulled in to the parking lot until I left with my groceries. Between this and Stitchfix I may never need to leave to shop again!

Molly Weekend

Molly's weekend started Friday night as a cheerleader at walk-on night at the high school football game. 

Saturday was spent watching Matthew in the Fair Days parade and then cleaning her room. (You can actually see the floor now!)

Today rounded out the craziness with the Race for the Cure at World's of Fun and softball practice. We are beat!

Labor Day Weekend

How is it that 3 day weekends always fly by?  My oldest brother Jeff and his family came to visit and the kids had a blast playing with their cousins.

 I spent part of Labor Day working at Barnes and Nobel on an assignment for my masters class with others from my cohort. This is our only online class and it makes me feel old!  

I picked my one and only watermelon that grew in my community garden. Anxious to cut into it!

I got my school pictures back. My first one in *gulp* 18 years!

Have you Stitchfixed?

I just got my first shipment. I LOVE the style though 2 of the shirts and the jeans were a little big. I received 3 shirts, jeans and a bracelet. I'm keeping the tank top and I'll get another shipment on Oct. 1st. The best part?!  Free shipping to and from!
