For Labor Day weekend, we headed to Jacksonville to use one of the Christmas gifts we received last year...tickets to the Jacksonville Zoo. Since it's a pretty far drive, I got a good price on a good hotel, so we stayed the night after our drive. When we got to the hotel, we let the kids go swimming and then showered up and headed to Catty Shack. Catty Shack is a cat sanctuary. It was really neat and we got to see the night feeding. Definitely worth going!

Had the first free day in a while, so we decided to go rock climbing with the kids. Jason, of course, could not rock climb, and I only did it briefly because of my fear of heights. But the kids absolutely loved it and Ashlyn surprised us by being able to do it and enjoy it. Jesse was pretty good with it also, but Kaylyn was awesome at rock climbing. I could see her doing this someday!

For the start of 6th grade, Kaylyn had to create an All About Me Poster again. This year it was larger, and she did a good job figuring out what she wanted to put on her poster. It was supposed to be 18"x22", but Wal-Mart only printed 16"x20", so we did that and just taped it to an 18"x22" poster. We created it using StoryBook Creator 4 and saved it as a jpg.

Sorry that it has been a long time since posting! We've been very busy with Jason's surgery and some other things. We're still here, and I'd like to share some news with you, but it is going to have to wait about another month. After things are finalized, I will get back on here and back track everything. Just wanted to let you know that we're still around, and we're still going to blog, but you will have to stick around a little while longer for that. The kids started school yesterday and had a very good first day. Can't wait to update everyone and share our pictures again. Hope everyone is well.
