Friday Family Fun Night...Fall Wiener Roast!

The first official day of fall is Sunday and we were celebrating the perfect weather with a little wiener roast last night.  My hunky hubby made a little "firepit" in our backyard earlier this summer, and the kids have been begging to make a fire in it for awhile now. 

 We are hoping to create a real firepit someday, but for now this works!  

 Big Bro chowed down THREE hotdogs!

 Baby Sis was thrilled to be eating by the fire!

 Little Bro was all smiles! 

The kiddos LOVED roasting and eating hot dogs.  We will definitely be doing this again...probably at least once a weekend if the kids get their way.

However, I must admit, my favorite part of it was a bit later when it was just the two of us around the fire while the kiddos slept peacefully.  Just perfect. 

What family fun are you doing this weekend?

Back to school...Back to Blogging?

I know, I know...I am horrible at keeping up with this blog.  I really enjoy doing it, but have a hard time managing family life and this!  BUT...I am not giving up!  I love being able to look back through the years and see what I have written.  So, I am back!  I am hoping now that the school year is in full swing, I can keep with it!

Speaking of school...Big Brother started Kindergarten!  He is loving it!

He is doing half day and riding home on the bus. I love being able to see him in the afternoon.

A couple weeks later, Little Bro started preschool.  He just goes once a week, and working on his ABC's, handwriting, numbers with Mommy the rest of the week.  He loves having his own backpack like his big brother! 

Baby Sis is home with me on those days.  We try to get a little walk in.  She is getting so big and ready to brave the road on her tractor!

I hope your school year is getting off to a great start!  We are looking forward to the beautiful fall weather and change of seasons!We
