Good-Bye August

Good-Bye August!

This has been a challenging month, but we survived it.  School is off to a great start, and we are hopeful for an amazing September.

August, thanks for the memories.  :)
Welcome September, and welcome Autumn!

My 365...

Happy Friday!

The alarm went off at 5:30 A.M. this morning, and it was one of the moments where you say to I really want to get up this early?  I can sleep in if I want to....but the balloons are launching at the park.  And I promised Blake...

So I got up, woke Blake, Casey and Jack.  Casey was on the fence whether he wanted to sleep in or go with us.  He did what any normal teenager would do...sleep in.  :)  Blake, Jack and I got on our bikes and headed to the park at 6:20 A.M.  It was still dark outside, and a bit chilly too, but we had a fun ride.  I am so glad we decided to go because the balloons were beautiful.  It was a perfect clear morning, other than a little smoke in the valley, and there were 40 balloons launching for the 2012 Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic.  Without question, my favorite event of the year.

It was awesome!!

When we got home I made some delicious breakfast tacos, then Blake and I took a nap.  :)

It was the perfect start to our three-day Labor Day weekend.

Total ride...7.34 miles.

My 365...

Today was testing day.  The boys completed their scantron tests and did quite well.  Blake's math was really hard, and as usual not the material we are covering in his current lessons.  The testing always seems light years ahead of where we are.  He made it through though.

We did enjoy day three of "Shape-up September" with a long bike ride to a local skate park.  It was a beautiful day today, so I packed a picnic dinner of BLT's, French Fries and watermelon.

Total ride this evening, 14.87 miles.

 Some fun at the skate park.

"Really mom?  A picture?  Really?"  lol...yep.  :)
 Bacon, lettuce, ricotta on toast, fresh watermelon.  Yummy!
