Back home

Well, we made it back home to Texas. We got in on Sunday night/Monday morning at 3 am. It did feel good to walk into our home for the first time in 6 1/2 weeks. It looked different to me when I came back, it looked bigger for some reason. That was 4 days ago, it's back to looking normal now! We were welcomed back to Texas by having our AC break on us on Monday. My parents were great and let us come sleep at their place until we got it fixed the next day.
Halie was off to Grandma and Grandpa's house on Monday for a visit. She had a wonderful time as always. Grandpa is her cards partner, he is teaching her lots of card games and says she is pretty good!
We were able to get together with Mike, Rebecca, Jaxson and Camden last night. It was wonderful to see them again after such a long time. This picture is Austin dressing up that night in a Santa suit and Paul's graduation cap. I couldn't get him to hold still long enough to get a great pic, but he sure looked cute!

Halie had meet the teacher tonight. Her first day of school is on Monday! She said she was really nervous about going, but today when we were shopping for her school supplies she said, "I'm not nervous anymore, now I am excited about going to school!" Here is a shot of her supplies all ready to go. I always loved new school supplies as a kid! Her new teacher seems nice, hopefully we'll have a great first year!

Before meet the teacher, Paul and Halie had a date this afternoon. They went to Target and had popcorn and went shopping for a new movie. Then they went to the Yogurt place and had a treat. Halie had a great time. I hope this is a tradition they can keep up together in the future.
Paul is already in bed. He has started going to swim practice at 5 am on M,W,F, so he has been getting to bed much earlier than normal. That is where I need to be headed to (to bed, not swim practice). More to come next week with Halie's first day of school!
