We're still here!

Hi all! I know it's been a long time since my last post, but we are still here- alive and well! We're just VERY busy people these days! Let me take a few minutes to give you an update on our crazy busy lives!

I'm sure you'll notice the new background. School is in full swing for Bri, mom and myself. I've been in school three weeks now and so has Bri. Mom started back on the 24th so we're all in school mode! I am absolutely loving my student teaching and my students! We went to the festival for the church that hosts the school where my placement is last night. I saw so many of my students and it was so fun to see them outside of the classroom! We were sitting at dinner and Steven said "I'm going to pick out all of your students okay?" I said, "How?" He answered, "They're all the kids that walk by and look at you and you can see it on their faces they're thinking should I say hi or just keep walking!" I got a lot of waves and a few "Hi, Mrs. Fischer!" (which is still really wierd to hear since Mrs. Fischer is my mother-in-law, but I'm getting used to it!) But we had a good time, and they had a GREAT turnout! I'm getting observed tomorrow by my university supervisor so send good thoughts and prayers my way!

I realized that I never posted pictures of Bri's first day of preschool! I finally got them off of my camera so here they are! She looks so grown up! It's killing me to think she's going to 4 in a few months!!!!

Over the long weekend we went up to Indiana for the last of the family reunions this year. This time it was my nana's side and it was at a park in the town where she and her siblings grew up. We had a very good turn out and it was fun to see everyone. We got to spend some time with my grandma and her boyfriend, Bob since we went up on Friday after work/school and the reunion wasn't until Sunday.

We came home Sunday evening and snuggled in to watch the Labor Day fireworks on TV. I'm not brave enough to take the kids down to the flood wall yet to see the fireworks, especially since Bri really doesn't like fireworks, so we watch them from home. I also had today off so I took Jonah to daycare and then came home to work on lesson plans and LOTS of laundry! I also got to go to the dry cleaners and the grocery store, so it was a very productive day!

So that's what we've been up to! We can't believe summer is officially over (although with the temps today you could have fooled me!!!) We're looking forward to fall, and all of the fun things to come: Fall Foliage Festival, pumpkin patch, Halloween, Bri's birthday and Thanksgiving! Oh, and mommy and daddy's 5 year anniversary! We've got an eventful fall coming up, and we hope you'll tune in for the ride!

I've missed you Kari! Glad you posted as I love to hear about your awesome little family!

Do you think your mom's aunt Marie resembles your aunt Christina? Just curious.

The Fischer Family said...

Yes, I do think that Marie looks like Christina! It is funny the way genetics work!

Oh you have been busy! But at least everything is going well. What a grown up little pre-schooler!

Wow, you guys have been busy. I can't believe how big Bri is....that is still wierd to me you have a child that old. You are such an adult!!! :) Also, I got a little sad when you mentioned the labor day fireworks. I miss those and hope to make it back for them someday....
