Busy Times Ahead!

Well.. fall has started and so has everything else. The boys started school on Tuesday - and it went amazingly well. No meltdowns the night before, no meltdown the morning of... no meltdowns at all! Wooohooo... I think I was more worked up than they were - fearing their struggle with new transitions! But once again they surprised me. I'm so proud of how they are progressing, it really just amazes me to see how much they have grown in the past 15 months.

We still don't know who their teachers are (will know tomorrow afternoon), but have an inkling that Carsyn will have the same teacher as last year. Thank goodness! He was such a wonderful teacher and totally got the "adoption" thing. He was actually telling us how things would happen - and when changes would occur, etc. Carsyn LOVES him, and I think that is why he had such a good beginning this year - he knew he would be in his class, for the first week at least. As for Brayden, we aren't sure... I put in my request (for both boys) and hope that he ends up with the teacher I think will be best for him.

Hockey has started........ the Campbell River Storm - who we all volunteer for - Butch does security and is the assistant trainer, I do all the game day events, Brayden is an "On-ice Kid" (picking up pucks etc) and Carsyn is fan! Butch traveled with the team to Victoria tonight as the trainer, and the home opener is tomorrow.

Minor hockey has also started, and the fool that I am has taken on the Division Manager position... eek!! So far it has just been lots and lots of emails, but once we get into assigning teams, I fear that the real workload has yet to come! Brayden LOVES hockey... and I want to be involved.. I can't coach so figured I'd help out where needed... we will see if I've made a mistake or not! LOL

I'm also on the board for the Soccer Association - Carsyn LOVES soccer, Butch coaches and my sister Megan and I are in charge of Awards - nothing much to do until the end of the year.. phew... hockey will be over by then.

Butch has taken on the Vice President of the P.A.C. at the boys' school - but as there is currently no President he is having to do all the work. Unless someone comes forward at the first PAC meeting, he has offered to be the President - yes... we are crazy!!

Somehow I've managed to find time to do some scrapbooking.. not for me.. for swaps. I'll take some pictures tomorrow and update some of the things I've been working on. I've also made a few really cute cards... at least I think they are cute! I've even started on Christmas cards - most for a swap - but I liked them so much I made a couple for me.

Yesterday the boys went to Grandma's to make cards - she's the resident expert on card making. It is also a fun way for the boys to spend some one on one time with Grandma - and give mom and dad a bit of a break. It is Nana, Caedra and Uncle Rod's birthdays this weekend - so they decided to make cards for Nana and Uncle Rod. They made really nice cards - and the one that Carsyn made for Rod is very nice (I'll take a picture of that tomorrow too!) We will make Caedra's card this weekend, before we head to Nana's for birthday dinner!

Well.... I've rambled and have to be up in 6 hours to go to Curves.. so off to bed I go.

Thanks for looking!
