This week was a week of firsts at our house. Like so many other households in the nation, it was a first day of school. The girl started 7th grade this year and was feeling the pressure of yet another year of getting older, something that she is not taking well to. But, she faired quite well this week.
She was getting a little irritated with me following her around and snapping pictures. Gotta love the "Mom, please" look!
She made it through another 'first' day of school and even tried out for volleyball, another first. This is the first year that kids can try out for school sports in our area. She was extremely nervous, but we told her that the only thing that she needs to do is do her best.
And that she did...
and made it!!!!!
She was so happy and relieved that that was over! Now on to practices and games and driving here and there. I never knew what my parents went through between my brother and I and all the sports that we played. They must have put thousands and thousands of miles on their cars!!
Thanks mom and dad!
Another first this week was the boy learned to ride his bike without training wheels!!
Oh the look in his face was priceless!
He was so proud of himself, as he should be!
Now he is just showing off!
I am so proud of my kids for trying new things and no matter if they win or lose, pass or fail as long as they try, that is all I ask.
Now on to the feature.
Kristin at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia sent me an email asking if she could feature my re-re-redo kitchen! I was SO excited!! She has such a wonderful blog with so many ideas and inspirations and is one of the sweetest bloggers that I have met!
So go check out her blog (and my kitchen:) ), she has been giving great tips on organizing your home.
My favorite is the bag of lost parts!
I think mine is half full already!
Come hang with me next week, I have been working on some small crafty projects for the kitchen and started on Halloween decorating!!
I hope that everyone has a great weekend!!
