Last night was Back to School night for Landon. We got to meet his teacher and hear what she had to say about 2nd grade and what was expected etc. 2nd grade is going to be a lot tougher than 1st, that's for sure! They have homework every night (reading, math, spelling) and if they forget to do it, they get a zero. I was surprised by that, considering they are only 7 and 8 years old, but at the same time I know that the kids need to have some responsibility at this age and they may as well be responsible for their school work. When we first entered the room the teacher had covered up the names on the kids' desks' and we had to figure out which child was ours...they were really quite cute all those little drawn faces. Here is what was on Landon's desk...doesn't it look just like him? LOL!


I thought his drawing was really cute! On the left he wrote: "Who am I? I am 7. I like chicnuges (chicken nuggets). My ies (eyes) are brown and my hair is brown. I like to play mechroied (Metroid) and Picmen 1 and 2." You would think that the only thing the kid did was play video games...but I swear it isn't true!

Zoe also had a soccer scrimmage yesterday right after school and her team won 3-0. It was SO hot out, but you never would have guessed it by watching them, those girls never look tired. She has another scrimmage today after school and then we have her Back to School night tonight. Busy, busy, busy!

How cute. Those are pictures to treasure. I remember when my two boys when to school, I still have some of their drawings.

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
