Next was my "mom-cation". That's right, I went to Vermont for a vacation. It was my 20 year High School Reunion as well as a Brisson Family Reunion all in the same weekend. Sally, my AMAZING mother-in-law, took the kids to the cabin for the week, since Michael was having to work. They had a great time and so did I. It was great to see my parents and my brother surprised all of us and showed up Friday night to be there for the family reunion, Thank you Peggy, for talking him into that one!! We had a great weekend together at the reunion and kayaking and just hangin' out. It was quiet and relaxing and the weather was AMAZING!!
My class reunion was so much fun, it was great to see everyone who was there and reminice about "the old days". I think all of us who were there had a good time!! Thank you to Brandie, Michelle, Carrie and Jenni for all of the hard work that went in to planning the weekend!!
The family reunion was great as well. There were about 180 people that were there, the food was great and the company was even better. It was a beautiful day to be at the lake and from what I hear the entertainment that night was great as well, I went to the class reunion that night. I missed hearing my cousin, Kevin, perform and from what I hear he's pretty darn good.
It was an awesome week, but it was good to get home to my family as well. The kids were excited to see me and it was time to gear up for school to start. The fun began of taking stock of what each child needed in the way of clothes and school supplies and then the shopping took place. Michael and I divided and conquered this year and I think we now have a new tradition. We went to the same store, but he took the boys and I took Ashleigh. Needless to say, he and the boys were done and anxiously waiting for us, but it saved me a lot of time and turned out to be a fun day!!
Now here we are at the end of August and the kids have been back to school for 3 weeks and Austin is adjusting to mornings with just mom around, Jared is enjoying being a Kindergartener and I am adjusting to the hectic schedules that Ashleigh and Jordan have with school, sports, band, scouts and church activities. Boy oh boy are we busy!!!
Strong and Brave
