Well, this is a big week for us here at the Odom house.

 #1 has her first official day at the hospital as a nursing student. She is staying here at home on her clinical nights. She will have her own patient to attend to. She went in today to get the paper work for her patient and got a bit overwhelmed and nervous. She will be working with post surgical patients. The worst part is that she has to be there at 6:45 AM..... everyday. It makes me laugh and cry all at the same time. All through school, she was the WORST about getting up and being ready on time. It has been really nice not having to fight with her about getting out of the bed the past few years and now here I am back at square one.

While #1 is headed towards one hospital in the morning, Art and I will be headed towards another one. He is having rotator cuff surgery tomorrow. We will be there most of the day and he should be released late tomorrow afternoon. So I am just guessing we are going to have a long night tomorrow night.

I am still catching up with end of summer pictures. We had so many "last night of summer" dinners and outings because all three girls started school on different days. We are into our nights out around here and look for any excuse to not cook!

This is my traditional picture of the sun going down on our summer.

Instead of our tradition of having
 Nutty Buddies on the front porch while the sun sets, #3 chose to go to a new frozen yogurt place. 
It is one of those places that has 100 different flavors of self serve frozen yogurt and then
at least 1,000 different toppings to choose from. 
(That is only a slight exaggeration.)
After you finish creating your masterpiece, you take it to the counter, 
it is weighed and then you are charged based on what the scale says. 

I love this picture below and how Barrett is sitting out in front of everyone. 

BF1 has tagged along with us for almost five years now.

#3 gave up.
She needed a doggie bag.

My kids know that I put the yogurt in the cups and monitor what they add to it when we go to those places. Otherwise, it ends up being $8 a cup when they're through! Hope the surgery and recovery goes well...
