Happy September!

September has traditionally been a special month for me. At least up until Owen came along! Now, it's just sort of another month in the line of 12. The Girls are going back to school tomorrow without me, for the second time. Maggie said it would be so much better if I were there. And I told her being home would be so much fun if they were all here! But I can't pay them and I don't really know what we would do all day. 4 women and a baby! We discussed starting our own home school!

So this post is dedicated to The Girls! I don't have a new picture to post though! We were going to take one on Friday when we got together for lunch but it didn't happen. Too much talking and holding O! But I will paint a little picture for you with some insight into each one of them!

Nikki recently said something I found funny. I learn a lot of my potty humor from her (or Morgan!) So to quote her, "A fart is just a turd honking for the right-of-way." And I will leave it at that!

This year, starting tomorrow, Maggie is aiming for a positive attitude. So we made her write down all the things she is "done" doing. Things that hinder her having a positive attitude and creating her own happiness. I have the sheet (we tore it from the table paper at Macaroni Grill!) and will remind her often!

As I've mentioned in the past Lori is the nice one of us. She was the reason we got together on Friday for lunch. It was her birthday yesterday! Lori's birthday starts the year, Nikki's birthday ends the year. Lori generally has a good attitude about things, even when they are bad. So she's like the rock. The big sister.

And so my wish for my dear girlfriends going back to school is that you have a good first day and week. That is isn't too damn hot (there's no A/C for them!). The kids behave. And the staff dresses appropriately!

And I'd like a conference call!

Hope they have a good start to the school year! We've been back in for a couple weeks now.

You have great girlfriends that despite the fact that you no longer teach, you have still kept in touch all of you. Girlfriends are good for the soul and spirit!

P.S how's O's bruise?
