So, how's the weather?

**Update** Just got a call and school is canceled for tomorrow in anticipation of the "torrential rain" we should be getting this evening. Here's to hoping we don't float away in the night. :)

I'm sure you are all wondering how we are here in "Coastal Carolina."

So, I'll tell you. We had a drought for about a month, maybe longer. I can't remember the last time it rained. Until Monday. Then, it rained...and didn't stop. By Tuesday morning our county had declared a state of emergency, roads were flooded and the schools were delayed. Then Tuesday it sort of cleared up. Sort of. This morning it started again. HARD. We are under flash flood warning until Friday morning thanks to Tropical Storm Nicole. Schools got out at 1:30 today due to inclement weather. Who knew? We are fine. No worries. In fact, we celebrated Nate's early release with chocolate chip cookies. Yum.

So I'd say the weather is pretty nice.

Emma's First Day

September 6th, 2010 was Emma's first day of four year old preschool. Her teachers this year are Miss Jamie and Miss Kasey. They are both former elementary school teachers and are so nice. Emma is having a ball!

First Day of First Grade

Nathan began First Grade on Wednesday, Aug. 25th. His teacher is Ms. Yantachka, and she is fabulous! That's a mouthful for first graders, so they all call her Ms. Y. Nate came home from his first day and exclaimed, "It was the BEST (pause) DAY (pause) EVER!!!
