First Day of School

Rachael and Jacob were excited and a little nervous to start their first day of school. I was a little sad because I wanted more of a summer with them. They came home, though and talked about how much they loved it and all the fun they had. Rachael had gym on her first day, and Jacob got to go to the library. True to form Jacob checked out a Star Wars book that was quite thick. When I asked him if he was going to read it during his 20 min. a day he said, "Mom I can't read that, it's too hard." So I asked him why he even bothered to check it out. He looked at me as if I wasn't the brightest kid on the block and said, "because it's Star Wars." I should have known better. Posted by Picasa

The "new" Funk Farm




This is what we've been checking on all summer. The kids love playing "house" in here since there is nothing but room to run. Isn't it pretty.







"Falling for you"


Dave demonstrates the need for new steps. Apparently these didn't set right. This is the parent that Rachael gets the acting bug from. Check out the view
Crony #1

Rachael went to drama camp for a week and performed in a play named Aladdin. Her part was Crony #1. She had some speaking parts, some songs to sing, and had to do a little bit of choreography. She said she had a great time, and we really enjoyed the play. It was set in the 1920's. We asked her how she got to be Crony #1 and she said it was because she was the shortest one. See Karen, sometimes it does pay to have those genes!!
