So it has been a little over a month, but this is the first chance I am getting to sit down and write about it. The first month of deployment always seems to be the slowest (except for the last one when you are waiting for him to get home). I am pleased to say that this time our first month flew by us. What a blessing that all of our school and sport activities started in September.
So here's a quick recap of the months activities.
Hannah and two of her best buds headed to Story Time at the base library the first Friday of the month.
Hannah also seems to spend a lot of time waiting on her big brother and sister. Here she is at the orthodontist office waiting. And waiting. And waiting.
School has been off to a great start so far this year. I just love all the activities our curriculum has to teach different concepts. Here is Luke learning what happens when it rains the Rocky Mountains, also known as the Continental Divide.

Mimi and Papa came for a visit in September too(more on that in the next post). Luke and Papa ready for lunch at BJ's

Hannah's first ballet class. She was super excited and loved every minute of it!
Hayley is taking a ballet/jazz combo class. This girl has got some moves. Love that they are able to take dance at our co-op this year.
Luke started a new soccer season. His team is the Wolverines. Because he turned 10 in the summer, he is playing in the U14 league. So far, it has been an incredible experience for him.
Won one game, tied 2 and lost one.
Hannah showing me that she was not too happy that I didn't allow her to go down the hill and climb trees during her brother's soccer game. Sometimes it is really tough to be a 3 year old.
Lunch at the Pit Stop
Papa hung some lights for us out on our back porch. Love them!!!
Headed to our first day of co-op. We are so very blessed to have found our cooperative CFS (Christian Family Schools) Carlsbad. I will have to write about what we do there at later date.

Had to call the fire department one night while I was cooking dinner. Not from a fire, but our carbon monoxide detectors went off. Trucks came with their sirens blaring and we got the all clear. The kids loved seeing the fire truck and the firemen were so kind.
Playing a new board game from our sweet cousins. Life.
To celebrate one month down, we took a trip to Chick-fil-a for milkshakes and decided that it would be our monthly tradition. And of course, we will take Daddy for milkshakes as soon as he gets home.
