Back To School Week (Week 35: 365 Project)

This past week has been a crazy one!  Lexie started Kindergarten, Dylan started 2nd grade, Lexie started gymnastics, Lexie lost her first tooth...all of this on top of our usual weekly chaos!

AUGUST 26th

Our last day of summer vacation!!!  Dylan returned from his sleepover, and my nephew spent the day with us.  We spent a lot of time outside, enjoying one last day of summer fun!

AUGUST 27th

The first day of school!!!  It was a big day for Lexie, because she was going to Kindergarten!  Dylan was a pro, and was so eager to go to 2nd grade in a new building!  Lexie had a great day, so we celebrated with our friends, Amber and Jack, at McDonald's.  Dylan also had a great day!  That night we were thrown into the back to school evening rush.  All you moms know exactly what I'm talking about!

AUGUST 28th

Morning 2 of school went just as well as the first!  After the kids left, I met my friend at the park for a morning walk.  I honestly can't remember what we did the rest of the day.  It's a blur!

AUGUST 29th

After the big kids went to school, we took Lily to the hospital for her hematology appointment.  She was in a teething funk.  She was fine during her blood draw, but started screaming once the doctor came into the room, and screamed halfway home.  UGH!  Still no answers.  Her anemia is improving, but she still has Neutropenia.  We are doing monthly blood draws now, then returning in November.  That afternoon, after school, Lexie started gymnastics.  She loved it!  That evening, after school, we had a Hearts for Hearts Girls party (stay tuned for the post!).  Afterward, I just may have caught a box of donuts, that were in the oven, on fire. We were all exhausted and ready for bed after this day!

AUGUST 30th

This day was crazy busy!  After Dylan and Lexie went to school, I met my friend for a walk in the park.  When I picked Lexie up from school, she jumped in the car with a big grin on her face, and told me she had lost her first tooth at school!  We went to a swimming playdate with friends, before returning home to get Dylan off the bus.  After dinner, my dad came over to watch the kids while I went to parent orientation at Dylan's school. I love his teacher, and his new school is awesome!
The kids were in bed when I returned home, so I had a relaxing night!

AUGUST 31st

After Lexie was done with school, we went to parent's house for a visit.  My mom and I did some shopping, then after dinner, we went to my sister's house for a sisters and mom night.  It was so much fun!  I finally left her house at 1:30 AM, and one of my sisters and my mom were still going strong! I really needed a night like that.  I laughed so much my face hurt!

SEPTEMBER 1st

September?!?  Seriously?!?  It was a stormy day, so I stayed home, in my pajamas, ALL day!  It was the first Saturday in a long time that we didn't have to go anywhere. It was wonderful and relaxing!  That evening, some friends stopped over for a bit.  It was a good way to end the week, and a great start to a new month!
