Hey I lost a few days there. The beginning of the school year always sucks me up and with the remodeling of the school it's even crazier than it usually is. Plus I caught the king of head colds. Just spent the weekend sitting in my recliner blowing my nose. I am very thankful for these two cold remedies. If you're interested in the one from China you can get it from veryasia.com or from Amazon. It is the most fantastic stuff!

I didn't get a picture on Monday. Too tired after school to do much else other than sit in the recliner! Tuesday though brought sunshine so after school we stopped at Baja Taco and got a quick take-out meal. We ran home and ate, changed our clothes and then headed to Hartney Bay. It was so beautiful and peaceful! A day of sunshine quickly restores any Cordovan's soul! Looks like the clouds are back this morning. but I'm so thankful we got a chance to get sunshine in our eyes last night!

HAircut day here. I was so tired of my hair that I decided to go short again. It's so much easier to take care of and I can embrace the curliness if I want to. Cadi decided to go short too. This is as short as it's been since about kindergarten. I love the bounciness and shine of her hair. Definately a 6th grade haircut!

Hey, we made it through the first 2 days of school. Despite the photo of a few days ago, Cadi is so jazzed about 6th grade! She is really excited for this year. Josi was pretty happy with 4th grade too. She's always a little apprehensive about school even though she is a fantastic student. Some of the social situations in her class can sometimes be difficult. Anyway after 2 days of school we really vegged out. The kids played on the computers and I watched What Not to Wear in my old sweats! Cadi found this old baby blanket while we were doing the bedroom remodel and for some reason tonight it became a hair adornment. Never know what's going through that brain of hers!

You get an old picture for today, because I didn't manage to take one. This one seems appropriate though. This is Josi at almost 2 years old. Her expression kind of sums up what I'm feeling about going back to work after summer vacation. How did the summer fly back so quickly?

We have finally entered the world of cell phones. The local phone company is giving away free cell phones with over 10,000 free minutes on them. You can get one for each member in you family. They are good for a year and will only do local calls, but hey, that's what we need. So we each have a cell phone. I think Cadi slept with her's last night. I'm sure her goal for today is to figure out how to do texting!

Worked at school for awhile again today. The girls have been such great helpers hauling stuff all over the building, sorting mail, climbing ladders. The school is in a bit of disarray since we are going through a complete renovation during the next 2 years. Nothing is where it used to be so at times it seems like a scavenger hunt trying to find the supplies. Anyway we came home, found out the dog's hair cut was postponed, I spent too much time on Facebook and then baked some cookies. I want the grey cloudiness to go away for a couple of days. Could it possible go away for the weekend?

I just love our mossy forests. There is something so quiet and peaceful about spending time and walking through the lush carpets of a temperate rain forest. Of couse if I'm going to love the effects of the rain I have to appreciate the rain which is sometimes very hard to do...

I got a pair of purple drumsticks for Cadi from EBAY and they arrived Thursday night. I said something about them being the photo of the day for Friday and Cadi took it to heart. She choose clothes to match the drumsticks and then really put up with her mother making a photoshoot out of it! The only thing she didn't get was why I would want a picture of an ancient pickup! How she wants a drumset...even more than a Nintendo DSI !
