So, today was Jaedon's 1st day of preschool at Ranch Creek Elementary!! He has been so excited to start school and had been on a wait list for a couple of months, and last week we finally got the phone call that he would start Oct. 2nd!!! Everyday he would walk out the front door and tell the kids waiting at the school bus that he too would be going to school...and today was that day.

Aww, I love when Fall is on it's way. There is something about waking up to a crisp chill early in the morning, somehow I feel it kind of slows and calms everything down. I grab my cup of coffee, put on some warm sweats and sweatshirt, light my candles, eat warm banana bread with melted butter, and read my bible. I love home...I love Colorado!!

The other night, Nick and I stayed up to watch the Olympics and when we went to bed at 10:30 (i know real late night for us!!), Jaedon was still awake in his room. He came out and was crying and this is what he told us, "Mommy, I have been trying to go to sleep for so long, but my toys keep wanting me to play with them. I am soooo tired, but i just keep playing with my toys!!" I couldn't help but laugh, this was the cutest thing ever.

So, I just have to say that I have NEVER seen a tornado and last night we went to Nick's parents house in Calhan to celebrate his Mom's birthday when I had my first tornado scare. Well, we were hanging out when all of a sudden a very loud siren went off and let's just say, I panicked!!! I ran downstairs with the kids and hid in a doorway with my tail between my legs :) Nick's whole family was upstairs looking at the clouds swirling above our heads...I am just not that brave! Luckily after two different times of sirens, the tornado dissipated. Then when we got home, the storm at 3 am in the morning was a little scary too. Needless to say I am feeling a little bit like a coward this morning and only got 4 hours of sleep after laying in bed wide eyed from all the loud thunder and lightning!!! I don't remember ever being scared of storms when I was little!! Why am I such a big chicken now??? Oh well, I will never live in Calhan :)

So, here it is again...Monday!!! Here is a little of what we did...
- Picked up my new iPhone on Saturday morning. I have been so excited to get this, but after we got home Saturday night, I spent HOURS on the computer trying to load everything and was very frustrated. Maybe I am just not "tech savvy." Finally got everything up and running for the phone and I LOVE IT! It does so many things! I loaded this app called restaurant nutrition and it will tell me the nutritional value of the foods I order when dining out!! So cool. I also loaded Pandora, a pedometer, just to name a few! This is just so fun and Jaedon LOVES watching YouTube (especially the baby laughing)!!
- Saturday we took the boys up to The Aquarium in Denver and had a blast!! Then hit Park Meadows Mall on the way home to get the boys some clothes from Gap since they closed the Gap Kids store in the Chapel Hills Mall a long time ago :( Good time with the family!
- Yesterday was a very hard and sad day for me. My dad has a buyer for my mother's house, so I went there yesterday with my sister and dad to go through the remaining items of my moms. Nick and the boys came for a little bit to help too. It was such a difficult time for me, but am feeling like maybe this will help some in the healing process too. On the way home, Heather and I saw the most beautiful rainbow. It was the brightest rainbow that I have ever seen. My Mom used to tell me, "You have to weather the storm to see the rainbow," and we both felt so at peace when we saw it. It was also a reminder that God will always take care of me. When I got home, I felt so emotionally empty and drained and just wanted to take a quiet drive, so I went to Borders and picked up this book that was highly recommended by my cousin called Motherless Daughters.
- Well, that was it. I hope everyone has a beautiful day and a great week.
