We have made it through the second day of school without incident.
The first day, I would like to do over!!
We got up at the time we needed and everything was going very smoothly until 730 when we should have been leaving but Austin was upset. I decided to nurse him for 5 min then we would leave. That still gave us 15 min to get to school. Then we got
to the Jr. High and I realized I had forgotten her paper that needs to be pined to her for the first 2 weeks. I contemplated whether or not to go back for it. My mistake was going back for it. Then I threw everyone in the car and took off. It takes longer to drive to school than to walk!! I could not find a place to park so I thought I was going to have to tell Allynn to get out and find her class when I saw our friend Erinn Hansen. She jumped in the car with Sydney and Austin and I was able to take Allynn to her class and take a few pictures. It took me a while to calm down after that. I was so upset that I had not been better prepared. I was frustrated and wanted to cry but Allynn was wondering what was wrong. I told her I was having trouble getting her to school, so she started yelling at me that she wanted to go to school. But, now all is well and she really likes it.
Today she said that her teacher was not nice to her, and left it at that. When we got home I asked her more about it and it turns out that her teacher would not let her be the leader of the line out to the pick up point. She got over it real fast. She said she would still go back tomorrow.
Oh, our wonderful Allynn.

We are glad it is October. Allynn is counting down the days to her birthday when she will turn 11 and she and I get take her birthday trip to Disneyland. We are excited that we get to go. We were lucky enough that Jason had a left over Southwest ticket from when he was flying to So. Cal once a month and we are using his hotel points he accumulated all last year. I am excited for a break. And it comes at just the right time, my class finals are due that Sunday, so I am attempting to work ahead so I will have everything turned in by Thursday morning before we leave.
Our grass is still growing in nicely. That has been a great highlight to this year!! And now for the best news of all - Jason has been offered a position at Integra Telecom!! YEAH!!!! He starts on Monday in the Customer Service department which is where everyone starts with this company. The two men he interviewed with have been with the company for 6 and 8 years and were very encouraging about the growth this company expects despite the economy right now. We are excited. They ask that he work the customer service department for one year and then he is eligible to apply to other positions in the company. His office will not be 2 mins. down the street but it is in Reno and we are grateful for that!
Thank you for all the prayers and help we have received from friends and family. We have been strengthened by your love for us!!
Mom - I don't think we will be moving into your basement as soon as we thought. Maybe next time! :)
