Last Thursday

My first day off was busy. Theresa cleaned the house while Mark and I ran errands. We met up with Valerie at 1115 and drove back to school for her first Parent Teacher Conference. She is now being graded on her conference so she was nervous. She did a great job outlining what her plans were for the next three years, her career goals, college plans, and her life's ambitions. Her presentation also included her aspirations of becoming a snake breeder (complete with pictures). Great job Valerie!!!

Afterwards she had tennis and I and Charlie used that time to visit and play at Bounce E House! We jumped together and raced down the slide together. We can't wait to go back for Lanie's party!

Fabulous Friday

Friday means a great many things to my kids:
Endless hours of Xbox, Wii, Computer, Free times
Movie Night
Pay Day
No bedtime (except for the wee one)
Play time

They love it.

Honor's Proud

The kids were both chosen after auditioning through the school district for the District Honors Choir! They had one whole day of rehearsals and then last Monday they performed their concert at PLU's Lagerquist Hall. The concert was so different than we are use too! The seats didn't have old pieces of gum on them, the kids weren't practicing beforehand, and Mrs Sutter didn't talk about herding cats or any inappropriate pearls that usually comes flying out her mouth during a concert! She loves the kids and is a great choir teacher, but sometimes we cringe when she talks to them! It was a beautiful night. I was a proud mamma listening to her two kids belt out some beautiful old and new tunes! The kids were on stage together, standing side by side in the front row. No one would've guessed they are brother and sister. They are so different from each other, but the love they have for each other is incredible! PROUD MAMMA!

Spring is Springing

I feel accomplished today. I cleaned the house in preparation for tomorrow's hand over, I exercised with my hubby this morning, I went to work and delivered a baby in two hours while I was there, returned DVD's to library, closed 4 savings accounts at Sound, went to the grocery store, watched and helped Ethan and Char do homework, folded 5 loads of laundry throughout the day, planted our seeds for starters, and am currently making dinner! Wow, who knows what tonight might bring. Only one error made today...let my child ride her bike with a tank top and short shirt and no coat on. Can't ALWAYS be perfect!!!
