I’m a bit late, but still want to share their cute pictures. It’s our tradition for them to hold up their fingers to show which grade they are starting. Julia and Anna are in year round school and actually started the last week in July. The first month has gone well, and they get to go off track for three weeks starting on Tuesday.
This is a big year for Jamie. She started seventh grade last week! I can’t even believe I’m old enough to have a daughter in junior high! Doesn’t she look really cute and grown-up?
I remember being so nervous to start seventh grade. Would I know people in my classes? Would I be able to find my classes? Would I remember my locker combination? Would the 9th graders pick on me? There was so much to worry about. I tried my best to prepare. I went back to school shopping at Fritzi’s and planned the first week’s outfits down to which earrings and socks I would wear each day. I got my new Trapper Keeper and Esprit bag. But even though I felt ready I was terrified!
I didn’t want to scare Jamie so I didn’t tell her any of this, but it didn’t matter anyway. She didn’t seem nervous at all. She was just really excited, and so far it’s been great!

Happy September Everyone!!!

And now back to the date. (I have to bring it full circle, so I don't leave everyone thinking about old boyfriends - yuk!) Jake and I slept in, and then he took me to Market Street Grill for brunch. It's my favorite place for Sunday Brunch - I'm drooling a little bit just thinking about the orange rolls.
The only picture I got of the two of us was this one on trax in our Utah red:
Thanks Jake for the awesome date!

These books are one of the reasons that I haven’t posted much lately. I can’t stop reading them!
The story really was awesome - mystery, vampires, romance, all the good stuff! After the first season ended, I started reading the books (which are must less graphic than the HBO series). I just finished the seventh, and ordered the eighth book in the series. I can’t wait for it to get here! They’re like a "grown-up" version of Twilight. I highly recommend them, and want all of my friends to read them so I can talk about the story and characters with someone. Has anyone else read them? The author is Charlaine Harris. She really has created an amazing world that seems so realistic, and characters that you can’t help but care about, and want to learn more about.
Let me know if there are any other fans out there.
