School Days

Last week Kyler started Kindergarten. He is his fathers son and never really expressed a lot of excitement over going but he seems to enjoy it none the less. He often tells me how much he enjoys recess.

I went to my first PTA meeting. I did pay for the membership after all. Its interesting but so of the meeting I wasn't quite picking up on.

Here are a few more pictures from his first day.

By the car at the end of the day.

Where I have been... Part 2

Last weekend we headed up to visit Dan's family in Aloha. Dan's grandpa and his Aunt Carol were there from Florida. I had never met Carol even though I have been part of the family for almost 10 years. So it was an exciting trip. 
We also went to the Oregon State Fair. I had never been to a state fair and it was quite a bit bigger than our fairs down here.Kyler would not go in to the Dinosaur exhibit with us so I went with the girls and Dan Sr. He did however ask to ride in the back of a monster truck. Go Figure!

We also got a few family shots while we were up there. Here is most of the family with the exception of Phyllis and myself.

Where I have been...

I am not sure what the deal is with me a blogging lately. I always intend to but somehow never follow through. I am just don't feel like writing that much I guess. We have done a few end of summer things...
First we headed to Coos Bay for a camping trip and to visit with my brother, sister in law and their kids.

It was chilly but for the coast it was beautiful weekend. Kyler enjoyed playing in the water and sand. He likes the whole camping thing. The first night Mike, Leisa and Maci came for a visit and roasted marshmallows with us. The second night Maci stayed with Dan and Kyler while I spend the night in a warm cozy bed at Mike and Leisa's.

The first morning Dan went for a ride on his quad. He took Kyler and Maci for a ride too before we left him to go to the Charleston Seafood Festival.
