Catch up on the Family:
|At a Dash baseball game|
|Jacob's 1st day of 1st grade|
The class grew silent.
Jacob: It's true.
Mrs Hoeldobbler: How do you know it's true?
Jacob: It's just Algebra!
We knew that we had a smartypants on our hands due to his exceptional kindergarten and preschool teachers. Then on day 3 Jacob comes home with a piece of paper that declares he correctly identified 121 words our of 125 of the second grade words!

Ashley is a working wonder-woman. She gets up first and gets herself ready, then sets out clothes and makes lunches. She takes Avery to work with her 2 days a week, and occasionally (sometimes often) gets help from the people she works with who need to "see their baby." Ashley did some training in Raleigh at the end of September, and continues to gain command of her job. She likes the WIC Clinic, the work she does, and especially the people she works with. She participates in the women's group at church when she can and keeps up with her sisters, mom, and friends. Being a nursing mother has it's social drawbacks. She and the boys are going to run a mud run next week!
