Saylor's first day of school 07-08 year

So the big kiddies have been in school for a week and today is Saylor's first day of her second year of pre-school. She is going to the same disability preschool as last year which is housed in the same school that the other kids go to. She has been pulling the shy card often lately so i worried that she might not adjust well. But thank goodness its all familiar and the teachers are the same, you would have thought she hadnt missed one day since she left at the beginning of the summer. She is doing so well! We spent the last weekend at a ranch with some of my family riding horses, i am pretty sure that if nate and i dont find her a horse and a riding coach soon we will be done fore. She seems to be one with the animals and talks to them! She is very comfortable and confident on top of a saddle. She will attend clinic sometime in September and hopefully that will clarify what we are planning to do surgery wise this coming year. I am being asked often what i am doing with my new found freetime, well its not as much time as it seems. by the time i take them and get back its only 2.5 hours before i have to go back to pick up saylor and she only goes 3 days a week. having the others gone all day is nice though. its different every day but it does make for things getting done faster. today i went for a run, something i have not done in such a long time. it felt really good. i plan on boarding for a few hours in the winter of course every chance i get. sundance is 15min or less away (i have timed it!) so i could get there around 9:30 board until 11:30 and be home in time to pick the little one up. sounds fun, i know your jealous! i have waited a while for this i will enjoy every last minute of it.

1st day of school 07

its the first day of school for storie and stockton. this is a big sigh of relief for me!!!!!!!!! i am a way better mom when i have a break from them and our lifes are at least more organized chaos. they both were really excited, they got up really early on their own, picked out their own outfits and took showers. i was up dont get me wrong but i couldnt resist just listening to them being so mature. they both have grown and changed so much this summer. stockton has hair for the first time in his life, he finally can sit still enough to get a real haircut and not a buzz. he's cute! they are going to a new school this year and will be at the same school as saylor, this will be good for our fam. i worry that the house will sell (i want it to!) and then we will have to move them to another new school. oh well someone knows what he is doing i am sure. we are good.

saylor said

mom said to saylor "your just so cute where did you come from?" of course this was rehtorical

saylor says 'heaven of course, i wanted to live here!"


so apparantly i am tagged by heather to blog 7 random things about me (audrey)

so this brings up two issues:

1. i have been a teribble family blogger! i need to blog way more often if i want this blog thing to work!

2. i dont have anyone to tag, heather is virtually the only friend or family that is not business related that blogs so exactly who am i supposed to tag?

anyhow here it goes 7 things about audrey;

1. i used to hate sushi but now i cant get enough of it! i would eat at happy sumo every day if i could afford it! my favorites are sunset, playboy, rock n roll, surf n turf, and vegas.

2. i love, no i mean LOVE to snowboard. give me a board a lift pass and my ipod and i am the happiest girl on earth! i cant get enough! it rejuvinates me and i cant wait to actually have a season pass to sundance this next year so that while the kiddies are in school i can be just me, not mom, not wife, not designer business owner, just audrey on a board in the snow!

3. i am obsessed with good vampires! like most of the nation! i cant get enough of stephenie meyers writings and i get more lost in her books than i have any other book for years and years! thanks for escape stephenie!

4. i love my mac! i would choose it over the pc anyday. not sure if its entirely mac thing or if it has more to do with that my mac is a laptop and is the one and only laptop i have ever owned and i love it! the comercials are good too! plus it helps some of us with boggle! thats for you aaron!

5. i love music, lots of different kinds and i am always looking for someone new. i should change that i LOVE good music, good to me. my favorites right now in this moment colbie caillat, ray lamontagne, rocky votalato, and a few others. i love the way it affects my moods!

6. i love blogs, love to read them love to post on them and love it when people comment and i love to comment too. blogging rocks! except for that i always have to finish with a disclaimer that i cant spell and have bad grammar and dont care enough to go back and fix it! laziness!!!!

7. i get bored easy. by this i dont mean by entertainment bored i seem to have more than enough to do these days but i get bored of my houses, cars, clothes, makeup and a few other things. i like something new and enjoy design so much that i cant resist the urge to design something new and relish in it! this is part of the reason that we have the enerrgy to keep doing houses!

well i would say that about sums it up. how did i do?
