We Survived: The First Week of School

Jake - First Day of 8th Grade

The Three of us in the bathroom - Waiting on Sami (can you find me?)

Sami, the first day of High School!  9th Grade

Yep!  There they go!  Caught them before they did the big split because of my camera
Hello long lost blogging friends,
These photos are from Sept. 4th, the first day of school.
I always forget how crazy our school schedule is.
The weekends are heaven compared to the weekday of getting these two out of bed and out the door in time for 'getting' them to school and me to work.

Since Sept. 4th we have added to our plates:
  •  Sami playing High School Soccer.  She has a game in La Grande today that I will drive over the hill to go see.
  •  Jake has decided he would like to play Middle School Football.  He is in 8th Grade and has NEVER played before.  Should be interesting, considering he is the smallest guy in his class!
  • Me? Surgery.  Yep.  Scheduled for September 25th.  Three things to be done to me.  Boobs, girly parts, and that 50 thing. JOY.
There you have it!  I'll be back again with other photos, and need to get some addresses for my book plate giveaway!

You're very good at provoking memories out of me.

I have a friend who endured breast cancer. Most likely caused by hormone therapy. I went through the chemo and radiation with her. That was almost 10 years ago now. Aside from some scar tissue, she's still intact.

My sister recently got a scare when she found a lump in her breast. Turns out, she had been working on losing some weight and this caused the fat in her breasts to congeal, causing lumps.

Aging doesn't have to be a terrible thing. But it pays to look under the hood once and a while. I sure you're going to do just fine.
