We laughed and cried and laughed some more. We talked about her being the first to drive (she was almost a year older than me, even though we were in the same grade). Her first car was a white VW bug. I LOVED that car! I still remember the excitement of just riding around with her and listening to the radio. It was great. She shared her memories of being at my house, sitting at the table and my Mom making egg salad sandwiches for us. We talked about loved ones we have lost. We talked about our kids and husbands. Before we knew it we had caught each other up on our lives.
I'm looking forwad to seeing her next summer!

I did have a birthday last week on Tuesday. We decided to wait until the weekend to celebrate since we had football practice in the evening. I still had a nice day. Mark and I went to lunch and then I just relaxed most of the day until the kids got home from school. We headed off to football practice but got a call on the way that it was cancelled due to wet fields!! We made a u-turn and went out for dinner. We weren't planning on birthday cake until the weekend when Grandpa (DAD) could join us but Mark surprised us with the cutest cupcakes!
Then on Sunday we had a nice lunch with Dad and came home and enjoyed ice cream cake!
Mark even had Skylar and Max sign a card!!
Sunday after lunch.........

He really seems to be enjoying it so far. He said he likes changing classes. He has been chatty and excited after each day. His favorite class so far is "Consumer family studies". He's excited because they get to cook!!
What is it about that first day of school. I cry everytime and it always catches me off guard. I think I'm fine and then as soon as I see them walking up to the school.... well, it's all over. I watched Connor jump out of the car into a big group of kids. He started searching for a familiar face I'm sure. I couldn't keep spying because I was in the car pool and I had to drive forward, darn! I drove away thinking about his very first day of preschool.. didn't seem that long ago.
We also started football this week and between both boys we have practice every night this week and probably for the next few weeks until games start. Both boys coaches are older and very experienced. Even though they are stern, the boys like them and are anxious to learn.
Alex is back to school next week. Maybe I will have more time for blogging then.

It was perfect because the boys were so genuinely happy with their equipment and we were happy to get it at such a great price!
