For Thanksgiving, we drove up to Miami to eat with my family. Everyone was there except for my brother Chris and his family, because he had to work.

After that, we had lunch at Boston Market with my parents. They were doing $1 meals all week, and there's not one on our side of town, so we had to take advantage. Then we hung out at my parents' house for a little bit before coming home to get ready for Halloween.

It's fall!! Either that or we're having a cold spell. The high was only 90 today!
Don't worry - they're not that sunburned. They just get pink in the heat like their mom.

Last night, I took the kids to the Diamondbacks/Brewers game. The kids had their free tickets from the summer reading program at the library, and I spent a whole $6 on my ticket. Rob didn't get to go because he umpired from 9am - 8pm yesterday! It was HOT outside, I felt sorry for him.
So my blogging has suffered lately because I went back to work full-time. I am working at Express Scripts in Tempe, and it's been pretty good so far. Although I'm still in training. My friend Mary works there, and she told me about the job. I totally owe her lunch.
I was nervous/sad about having to leave Robbie during the day, but my friend Alayna is watching him & he loves it! Her son started kindergarten this year, and her oldest daughter is the same age as Robbie, so they keep each other busy. Alayna is great & multi-talented. For those of you who don't know her, go to her website & check out the coolest baby toys ever: Zadyball.com
For the time being, I'm still staying on at Kohl's, but only for Friday nights. Rob thinks I should quit, and I will when I'm completely tired of it, but for now it's nice to still get the employee discount and to get my window shopping done while I work. Not to mention getting a few extra dollars every week.
Erin is tearing it up in second grade. She loves it! Her teacher is really good & Erin is excited about school every day. She got her first progress report the other day, and she has all A's and one B. The B is 96%, and four of her A's are 100% so that's pretty cool! We're proud of her.
So that's what we've been up to.

Her teacher, Mrs. Petersen is very nice. We went to "Meet the Teacher Day" the Friday before school started, and after we left the classroom, I asked Erin what she thought of her new teacher...
"She seems nice! She seems like she's not one of those teachers who gets all up in your face."
Okay then! That's the type of teacher I like, too.
Kindergarteners and first graders share a playground, and when you go to 2nd Grade, you get to play on the "bigger" playground. Erin is pretty pleased that she gets to play on that one now, and she's excited about the idea of getting to read to the kindergarteners now that she's in 2nd grade.
Mrs. Petersen said she has good leadership skills, and that she scored the highest in the class on their spelling pre-test. I guess she only missed four, and there are 7th grade words on there! That made Mom proud.
Rob's dad, Bob, his wife Sandy, and Rob's half-sister Annalice flew down for Molly's funeral, and they stayed with us for a couple of days. It was nice to visit with them, because we haven't really seen them since we visited them when Erin was a year old. Of course, the visit wasn't under the best of circumstances, but we enjoyed having them, and we're glad they stayed with us.

Rob was off yesterday, so our whole family went to the Arizona Science Center courtesy of the culture pass. Of course there is a lot to do there:
Watch a lady dissect a cow's eye, and then touch it afterward...
(with gloves on)
Throw balls into the nose until it sneezed again...
(Not as terrifying to Robbie as it was last time)
Toyed with peoples' emotions...
Looked at stuff made of Legos...
Rolled balls through PVC pipes stuck to a wall with magnets...
It was a little busy there; I'm glad we didn't try to go on a Saturday, like we were originally planning.
Afterward, we went to the Krispy Kreme downtown so Erin could get the free donuts for the A's on her report card! Then we just went home to cool down, because it was H-O-T out.
Only a couple more weeks til school starts! Summer has gone fast.
