I feel like I can barely remember what happened in September...
I started work at the end of August, so September was trying to adjust to life with working full time, kids going to long days at school/day care and housework falling to the wayside!
Labor day weekend, the kids and I went to Indianapolis for my sister's bridal shower. It was a great weekend of relaxing with good family and friends.
The last weekend in September, I went back to Indianapolis for Beth's bachelorette party. It was a little weird to not have any kids with me, but also quite nice! :)
Jake started going to "school"/daycare and he loves it! He has adjusted beautifully and runs in without a problem. All of the kids absolutely love it which makes Pete and I feel less guilty when we sometimes have to leave them there for 10 hour days!
I can't remember much detail from the month, so here are the pictures!
Claire and Grace typically nap with me on the nights that I have to work - I love it!
Pete and I rode our bikes to a local park and had a picnic on a Saturday in September
It wore Jake out...
Claire, Uncle Keith, and Grace (on the top bunk) watching a movie!
The girls started taking showers - it is really nice!
Cookout with the Vandervaarts - Cousins sitting at the picnic table

One of Jake's favorite things to do at the Y is to go play in the open gym with basketballs - he throws a fit whenever we leave

In mid-September we bought a car. We figured with the combination of an SUV and a minivan, both of our commutes, and gas prices - it was the smart move. The kids love the little car and here is a picture of them during our first drive!
