Fall Update

Sorry it's been so long between updates here.... I have to admit that I post most of these pictures (and more) over on my facebook page... so if you want to be kept more up to date, friend me!!

Anyway, school has been in session for about a month. Alex is in 7th grade. Hudson is in 5th and Ethan is in 2nd. The boys nearly missed the bus on the first day because it comes 10-15 earlier this year than last year! Ethan ran down the driveway with no shoes on yelling, "Hudson tell her to wait!!" Not the greatest way to start off the school year. So, as you can probably guess I didn't get any pictures of the boys before school, but this one is from when they got off the bus.
Ethan has started tae kwan do! He goes twice a week at the Y, and so far he really enjoys it. So add to Ethan's 2 lessons the 9 dance classes that Alex and Hudson take between them (well, Alex demonstrates for one of those- her first paying job!) we are in the car a lot!! Ethan has four more classes before he goes for his next belt (orange).

Alex has had her first dance at school already! The middle school has a dance every month. (Here are a few of her friends at our house on the way out the door to go to the dance.) This week is homecoming and she has dressed up for all the theme days... hillbilly, Disney and geek so far. Tomorrow is "Holiday"- she's going to dress like a funky witch. Friday is Spirit- blue and white. She also auditioned for the middle school musical today. Call backs are tomorrow. Wish her luck!I don't have a picture of it, but Hudson's team won their first fall soccer game of the season... 7 to 0 I think. Hudson scored! Its a good group of boys. I think they will do really well. He is also taking part in a new thing at our school, Lego League, where the kids build and program a lego robot to run an obstacle course. It has just started, so they've only been building so far.
We also have two new babies in the family!!! Cooper Rickart was born on September 15th and Gianna Pearl was born on September 29th!!
