This is our life now. As soon as the kids are ready for bed, we spend some quality time ROCKING!
Of course the children fight over the drums, is drumming a genetic trait?
I think the singing is the most fun (easiest) and Jack told me that I was "the best singer in the world" because I passed Tom Sawyer on expert.
(Don't tell him that I've heard that song a thousand times!)

Corb turned 35 this week WOW! He's taking it pretty well. To help soften the blow of old age, his children (with the help of their mother's debit card) purchased Rock Band for our Wii. It has been so much fun watching the kids play with their dad. Jack told me he thought this was a "really good way to get us kids into rock music", as if the countless albums they have listened to didn't do the job! I knew Corb missed being in a band but I didn't know he was waiting for me to give birth to his band mates!!! I hope to have some photos to post soon- keep checking, I'm sure they'll ROCK!

I had a few minutes this morning and sat down to reflect on the last few weeks.
This time of year is my most favorite. I love back to school (I even look forward to some day going back!), I enjoy the fall weather and I love football. That pretty much makes fall the best time of year.
There's a lot of excitement this year as we are in the process of moving. That means the boys started a new school. They were a bit nervous but are adjusting fine. I'm grateful that they have an easy time making friends and adjust well to new situations.
Penelope started a week later (she thought she would die) and she's back at Miss Stephanie's for her pre-k year. She loves school and can't wait to go to "real school" with her brohters next year.
The first day was really fun and they're into the swing of things now, it's as if the summer never happened! Jack is in 5th grade and Spencer is in 3rd grade.
I'm really excited for Jack- this was my favorite grade in elementary school. I was able to spend the last two weeks of that year in my Uncle Dale's classroom and it was a highlight of my childhood.
I look forward to another year of fun!
