Hey folks! School is in "mostly" full swing. I think we are all still adjusting to the routine. The boys love their new schools and teachers. Jacob is in 3rd grade and his homework level has doubled :( But - he's not complaining and he's doing great! Jacob also started taking piano lessons. He has had 2 lessons and he really enjoys it and is doing well.
In other news....I started my own business this week! It's an errand running service for locals around here. I've had 1 client so far :) I am currently passing out flyers/brochures and am trying to gain clients. I also started a Facebook page for the business. This is new territory for me so I'm quite nervous - but really hope it does well as I sure don't like sitting around the house and I really don't want to go back to an office setting.
my business: All Around Errands
Jacob and daddy in their first duet: Duet #1 and their 2nd (this one features Ryan vs. the pillows) Duet #2
I tried to just load the videos here - but was having trouble so you can view them from the facebook link for now.
On to September!

WOW, where to begin. This may be the most traveled summer we've ever had. We started off in early June with KidzBlast at our church (VBS). And, yes, it was a blast! The following week, we loaded up the van and headed on a 2-day trek towards Texas to visit with the Texas Carters. We all had a blast swimming and eating (the 2 things we seem to do when we are there). It was great to get together as always. Already looking forward to next time :)
After a week in Texas, we headed to Louisiana to visit with Papaw & Grandma. They were beyond excited to see us and dad had a special project planned for the week. In just a few days we built a tree house for the boys! It was a fun project and great memories were made.

Wow ... we really need to do a better job of keeping the blog updated.
Well, here's an update on what has been going on around here since our last post.
In February we celebrated Ryan's 4th birthday. (Can you believe it?!) We celebrated his actual birthday with family presents and birthday cupcakes. That weekend we invited some of his friends to come over for a birthday party! We made a Snoopy cake, and everyone enjoyed playing in the back yard.
Later that month, Jacob's school celebrated the birthday of Dr. Seuss with some special reading days, including a day where students were encouraged to dress like their favorite character. Jacob chose Horton the Elephant.
In the middle of the month, the Lee County High School bands took the stage at Cairo High School, about an hour and a half south(ish) of here. The Wind Ensemble, which is the top group, played a Level V/VI program (Level VI is the highest possible) and earned Straight Superior ratings - the best you can get! The Symphonic Band played a Level III/IV program and earned an overall Excellent rating with a Superior in sightreading. Their Excellent rating was very close to a Superior.
Last week, Jacob's class sang in a program at school all about vegetables. He was a carrot. :) His friend Kasmere was "Herb" the gardener.
Jacob was also named Model Student for his class in March! Way to go, Jacob!
