Catching up with Instagram

Once again, I've dropped the proverbial blogging ball. The kids were both back at school this week, I had a birthday (29. Again.), It has rained incessantly, we were threatened with a hurricane, I had 8,890,914 forms to fill out and sign for the two schools, and had to send in a bunch of money to the aforementioned schools - lunch money, locker money, yearbook money...and so forth and so on.

Sadly, I have absolutely nothing exciting to share. If you've got kids, then you know how the week has been. Back to school time - Blech. 

Thankfully, no one has overslept so far. 

So anyway, I decided to share the photos from my cell phone - since I haven't been using the real camera. Hold on to your seats - the excitement might overwhelm you.

First, let's all give a warm round of applause for this little guy. He's been working overtime this week. I don't think I would have made it through the week without my dear, dear friend - Mr. Keurig.

Seriously, though. It rained this week. A lot. Torrents of rain. There was flooding in the streets - and at The Princess's school. Now if you have kids and you do parent pick-up - you know how it's always crazy the first week? Well, multiply that by about 100. The kids couldn't exit through the usual area at the front of the school because it had flooded. So parents had to try to fid a spot in the student parking lot, which was jam packed. I'm telling you, it was crazy!

This was our weather this week.
Every. Single. Day.

But today is sunny. And beautiful. Hooray!
Also, Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac seems to be heading further west and so doesn't appear to be a threat to those of us on the First Coast any longer. 

Which is just excellent.

Anyway, moving along with the review of the week...and completely out of order...

Here's The Princess heading out for her first day of her sophomore year of high school.

The Boy had some friends over. Just to hang out. There's nothing like walking in to a houseful of hungry teens to make a middle aged 29 year old mom feel needed.

Don't you love how everyone is a good sport about the mamarazzi, except for The Boy? He feels the need to make goofy faces every time a camera appears.

So, that was our week. Did anyone else have kids start back to school this week? 

Waking up and getting going before the sun is up.

Birthday flowers...still hanging in there!
