Sophie LaRue

Welcome to the Potts' Family Sophie LaRue Caroline's new puppy. Caroline did such a good job of taking care of Zander and she misses him so very badly we decided to replace him with a puppy. I didn't want another cat because of the cat hair so we found this cute little puggle (pug and beagle mix).

Look at that smile. She said yesterday was the best day of her life.
We took Sophie to the vet this morning and all checked out well. She weighs 2lbs.

Back to school and new glasses

Lots has been going on here and I will try to fill you in on all of it. I am trying my hand at sewing. I have no idea what I was thinking. Girl Scouts are getting ready to start and sewing is a badge the girls can earn and that is how it started. Well then I found this cute dress pattern called the Caroline dress. So of course I had to try. Here is Caroline showing what I have completed so far. As you can see I have to finish the top and arms. She picked the material out herself and is very proud of it.

Most of you know about the testing and problems we had with Nick last year in school. well one of the diagnosis he received was dyslexia. After school started last month we noticed he was having more problems with it then before. After seeing the pediatrician she ask us to try these glasses for dyslexia. Doesn't he look so very cute? They are working so far.

Here are pics from the first day of school. I can't believe how much bigger they look this year. It was a hard transition for me this year, but not them. They love their teachers and school.

My very gorgeous daughter.

My humorous handsome man.

I am trying to sub this year but have not gotten any calls yet. This is very hard for me because I am home by myself every day and miss the kids terribly. I started back to school myself last Monday so that has helped a little.
Nick also started drum lessons last week. He is really enjoying them and likes the teacher who looks like Mic jager with long white hair. Caroline will resume piano next week. Then the next week Girl Scouts and Boy scouts start. Nick has wanted to join Boy scouts for 2 years and we finally got to it this year. He can't wait to shoot a beebee gun and participate in the pinewood derby and the regatta.
The kids are doing great and growing everyday. We are enjoying them very much. Hope you are all doing well.
