Popping in

Just thought it was time to post again. Today at work they celebrated the September birthdays with cake & fruit. It was my turn! lol We got a pic taken and everyone that came to the celebration sang to us that had birthdays. It was fun.

Lindsay had her first soccer game. Joe is her coach. It's a youth fall league through the Area Recreation. Anyhow, their team, The Wizards, won 1-0. Next game next Thursday!

Tomorrow is my dad's b-day. We are all going to celebrate at the care facility on Saturday. Should be fun but we are hoping it's not too overwhelming since there will be 13 of us all around him.

Anyhow, that is the scoop so far. I'll check back in a few days.

My Birthday

Yep, today is my 36th birthday! It's been a pretty good day. I got some awesome pictures of my girls as my gift from them and my mom! Mom had the girls for a couple weeks this summer and they got them taken as a secret!

I got a lot of emails from co-workers and friends, which made the day even better! Thanks everyone!

Have a great night!

First Day of School!

Look at my beautiful 2nd & 5th graders! Today was the first day of school in a new school. We walked the girls there, Joe and I. When we got into the first door, K didn't want to go. She started to tear up and luckily the principal, Mrs. Cooper, came by. She asked if everything was alright and I told her that this is a new school for us. So she asked Kim if she'd like her to take her to her classroom to meet her teacher. Kimberlee asked her if they get "buddies" to help show them around and Mrs. Cooper said yes, Mrs. Welch could get her a buddy. So we walked to K's classroom, met the teacher, asked about a buddy and a little girl turned around and introduced herself to K. I told K that Joe would stay with her and I needed to get L down to her classroom, she said ok. So I walked L down to her classroom, met her teacher, told her we were new to the school, asked about a buddy and she said yes, they have classroom buddies. She said we were to wait out by the lockers til it was time to go into their room. So when it was time, she called the kids in and I went in and helped L find her table with her name tag on it and then I asked her if she was ok. She said yes, I gave her a hug & a kiss, told her I loved her and told her to have a good day. She said all the same back to me and I left. By the time I got back down to K's room, the kids were all in their rooms, and her class was already writing something. I found Joe waiting for me just outside the one set of doors. I asked him if K was alright and he said that she didn't want to go into the classroom, but the one gal took her hand, told her it would be alright and said she could sit by her. That was sweet! Then Joe asked me if I was alright...of course I teared up - more as a sign of relief than anything I guess. The first day was hard on me too. But it's all good and in about 20 minutes, I'll take off to go pick them up. They only had a 1/2 day today and it's about an 8 minute walk to the school from here.

So there you have it...the first day of school story. It all turned out well and I'm sure when the girls find me waiting at the flagpole for them, they'll be talking a hundred miles a minute about the new friends and stuff in their rooms!

Happy Labor Day!

I know it's a day early, but c'mon, do I post every day?? Nope! So since I have the time, I'm gonna send out my "Happy Labor Day" wish for you now. :)

Did some baking yesterday. Got my zucchini all shredded, used some of it and froze the rest for now. I got green peppers cut up and froze as well. Mom gave me some last weekend from her garden! I made zucchini muffins instead of bread and I also made banana nut muffins and blueberry muffins. I made Chicken Tettrazini for dinner which was yummy. I was going to make a Pork Chop dish for dinner, but we need to eat I'll take the pork chops out today and make them tomorrow instead.

The girls are at their dads til tomorrow evening and then we have to get all ready for school the next morning. First day at a new school for them. It's only 1/2 day but'll be a bit nerve wrecking and exciting all at the same time. I think after school I'll take them to Diane's Dollhouse since we've been wanting to go check it out. I just have to USE my memory! lol

Mom said dad was doing pretty good yesterday. He enjoyed some of her peach pie that she took up to him. From what she told me of their conversation, he's pretty darn alert and the nurse tells her he is eating-eating-eating! So this is all good stuff! We go visit him next weekend. There is also a little Festival going on near my moms which we will go to as well. Should be a fun weekend.

Ok, enough rambling. I hope I haven't shocked anyone by posting again - so soon! lol But I had the urge!

Take care - til next time....
