Little School House on the Prairie

One of the advantages of having your school on a National Landmark is that you have a field trip right in your back yard.  Every year the 4th graders spend part of a day in the old school house pretending like they are going to school in the 1800s.

 I don't think she thought this was nearly as cool as I did.  As a child who grew up with Little House on the Prairie, this was a day out of my favorite TV show!

 The school marm was quite strict.  Look how straight they're sitting!

They even got to put their lunches in lunch pails.  How fun is that?  The kids decided they would stick with their air conditioned school for now!

Art Tour with Uncle Erick

Last weekend Uncle Erick was working in San Angelo so we got to hang out with him.  He and Taylor took the kids to the high school football game on Saturday night.  On Sunday we decided to show him the artsy side of San Angelo.  Yes, we do have one!

 We toured the art museum which really impressed John Curtis

 Then we took him down Art Alley.

We ended up back by the river before frozen yogurt.  Yum!
Thanks for coming to see us Uncle E!

Carter William Brewer

Carter William Brewer entered the world at 6:54 pm on August 26 (the previously mentioned first day of school) weighing 6lbs, 13 oz. We finally got to go see him this weekend and we are all in love.

Sophie took to him right away and she begged to stay at Lindsey's house with me that night.
She was a big helper.
How sweet is that face????

 On Sunday afternoon we drove back the Weatherford and Uncle Taylor finally got to meet his nephew.

 We finally talked JC into holding him.  He'd wanted nothing to do with him, but his smile when he finally held him says he's pretty fond of his little cousin too.

This girl had lots of tears when it was time to tell Carter good-bye last night.  Sure wish we lived closer!

Back to School

What a week!  Last Friday we had Meet the Teacher.  Taylor took them because I had my own class of 23 darlings to meet.  Thankfully, I already know the teachers.  JC has Sophie's first grade teacher and Sophie is right across the hall from my classroom.  Lucky girl!

 Then it was the first day of school!

 As if the first week of school wasn't enough, Baby Carter decided to come on the first day (he gets his own post next) and Uncle Erick came to town to work and play Lego StarWars with JC.

It was a wonderfully, busy, exhausting week!
