NEw AdVenTUreS!

Moving, apartment, weather and now SCHOOL! So many NEW CHANGES in our lives right now! The kids and I are trying to adjust to all of them.

We bought a house in Frisco which is about 12 miles from where we live right now. The kids schools are all within walking distance from our NEW house,,,,however, we are not in our house until Sept 30th.... So we get the fun commuting adventure every morning!
We have to get up at 6:30 A.M.(if you know my kids, that is a whole adventure in itself)!!....get ready, eat and be out the door by 7:15....the drive, in traffic, is about 25 to 30 minutes! It is like taking our kids to Brigham City every morning for school!
Ryann and Kaden start at 7:50 and end at 3:00. Mckall and Alec start at 8:35 and end at 3:55.
Our mornings are sooooo fun! I keep telling the kids that we can do ANYTHING for 4 weeks! We have 1 down....3 to go!....Then when we are in our house the kids can walk or ride bikes to school AND they can sleep until 7:15 or 7:45!!!! YEA!!!!!!!
Mckall says the Middle School is Strict! At lunch they have to sit 4 kids a side and no more at the tables....& they have to raise their hands if they want to get back in line and get seconds!!....Mckall said when they want to be done...they have to raise their hands and be excused from the lunch room......."GAY" ....that is what Mckall said! hahahaaa! Apparently, they lighten up after the first month, but, they set the expectations high on behavior!!!
As far as Kaden and Ryann go......Kaden brings home a BEHAVIOR CHART every day. It has either a smiley face or a frowny face for the far Kaden is 4 smiley and 1 frowny!!! I know, I was shocked too! hahahaaaa!!!
My middle two...Alec and Ryann....just go with the flo and are doing great!
Lets get these next few weeks over with and MOVED,... AGAIN!....then we will be back to getting NORMAL! :) :) :)

wow. that does sound like an adventure - and you're right. you can do anything for three more weeks! :) ... but the mental picture of you AND your kids getting up that early and getting out the door is quite funny. :)

i'm glad ryann and alec are doing well - and go kaden! four smiley faces is good! :) .... and mckall ... i'm glad she's doing ok, even though they are strict. as much as she hates that, it means they care about their students, and that's awesome. :)

thanks for finally posting. i know you've been busy but i've been wondering and worrying about your kids and their first week at school.
love you all ... and hang in there! :)

Wow...that is early!! I barely get up before 8am to get my kids walking at 8:30. I can't wait for you guys to be settled and into your knew family. Tell McKall not to worry about lunch, they do that at our elementary school its really like she is in 4th grade again. COOL!! Thanks for posting all the details. I love it.
