Mom and I took a very spur-of-the-moment trip to Branson/Springfield, Missouri the weekend before school started. We went to this cool new place in Branson. We were only able to do the mirror maze, though, because the "Castle of Chaos" was broken. If you like scary, check it out! We were so bummed to miss it. Maybe next time...
Branson West. So great to see them!
Steve's wife, Serena, and Ryan.
Their "middle child", Jake, and Conner-they're "buddies".
Just a very cute picture of Ryan.
August 24th was the first day of school. Chandler's in Middle School now and starts an hour before the others. As horrible as it is, I totally spaced getting his picture! I just kicked myself when I realized it. Anyway, on to the others:
Everyone had a great first day. A couple of things have happened this week, however, that are worth noting. First, Makenna had a fire drill, was terrified, and cried for the next three days not to go to school. She's better now. Second, Chandler got DETENTION! Yep, middle school detention. Apparently, he just didn't know when to stop with the silliness and sarcasm. He is pretty upset about it, so I went sort of easy on him. I did make sure he understood now what is expected of him, and also that he understands it won't be so easy if it happens again. Wow. Chandler....in detention......who'd have thought?
