Thursday morning...

That is today, just a thursday morning. I would have gone to the gym, but I was supposed to have a conference at Victoria's school at 8:45. But her teacher called earlier and had to rescheduke because of ITBS make-up testing. So my whole morning was planned around the conference and now it is all messed up. Not that I had any huge plans, but still! Now the conference is around noon.

Thought I would make a quick post while Trey is sleeping.

Took some pictures on Tuesday... 5 months old! Will try to get them uploaded soon, not sure if I got his smile at all, he was full of energy.

Unfortunately, the piles of laundry are calling my name. Have a great Thursday!

Star Student

Victoria is the Star Student this week!!! Every Friday she brings home the Kindergarten newsletter and this Friday it was announced that she is the Star Student of her class this week! We spent yesterday afternoon making her All About Me poster. We took this picture of the 4 of us to add to her poster after we realized we did not have a good picture of all of us since Trey was born.

Trey and I will go have lunch with her one day this week. I don't have anything going on so I asked Victoria what day she would like us to come... her answer... 'Tuesday, it's my favorite day!' So, Tuesday it is!

Soccer games started this weekend. We have a new coach who is very nice, but we miss coach Drew!

The Bus

Here are a few pictures finally from Victoria's first bus ride. After that she kept asking to ride it home too. So now that the weather isn't in the triple digits anymore we let her take it home. There is a girl in her class that also rides her bus and they have been sitting together, so Victoria just loves the bus!

Neighborhood Storm...

Catching up again...
Almost two weeks ago I decided to play some racquetball for the first time in over a year. While I was taking a break between games I got a call that we had 'severe' weather in our neighborhood. WHAT?! So I got a hold of hubby and everyone was ok, the main concern at the time was that he had the baby and had no warm water to warm a bottle for him and he was not a happy baby. Home I went... as I came up to the neighborhood the road was covered with branches, pinecones, pinestraw... once in the neighborhood I saw trampolines broken, decks damages and branches broken. The biggest thing was the big pine tree in OUR front yard. Thankfully it fell towards the road and not towards the house. Our sand box was tossed into the neighbors yard and a trampoline from neighbors behind us was in the lake across the street in front of us!!!

The tree is finally cleaned up after many hours of chainsaw work and hauling it away.
