A Bowl of Honey?
Here is Maddie with her uber cute Ballet bag.
Martha came and put her initials on it for us as well.
And then there is Tanner....and if you've ever read a post from our beloved Tanner, you know are certainly in for a treat:
Ok, this is Tanner's bag. If you can't tell from the pic, it's the back. Eric tells me day in and day out, I'm turning him in to the kid who has his name on all his shirts......he's only partially correct. This isn't his "name", it's his initials. :) T insisted if the girls get special bags with thier names and stuff on them, then so does he. So be it. I called him in to see it after I was done. He took it over to his new lunch box, and said the following:
"Look, Mom. It's like it's supposed to be there. My initials on my Nike bag match the swoosh on my Nike lunchbox, that match my new Nike shoes. All the kids are going to love my Nike stuff!"
At least he is the kindest, most gentle, amazingly matching kid with his initials on his back!!!
My kids think I'm cool.....that's all that matters to me!!
Here I come!!!! Sarah is finally doing what she always said she would!!! All three kids are in school, so why not add a little more chaos to our lives???? I start Oct. 1, and am headed back into the nursing program. The kids are excited....and can't wait until I can work for Dr. Gee. :) Tanner asks me every day if I still work for ING. I love his concept of time. It will take a few years, but with loads of work and studying, I won't be a secretary for much longer!!! Already studying to take the Nursing entrance exam, and it's not daunting yet!! It's exciting actually. A lot of this feels like review....we'll see how long it takes to kill that buzz. So when I'm seemingly more unavailable than normal, it's not that I don't love you, it's that I don't want to have to move in with your family when the economy decides it can do without my kind!!! :)
Wish me luck....and be prepared to be poked and prodded.
The soon to be....
Not all....because I haven't pulled the ones from the camera yet.
A beautiful storm on the beach....I love the wind from the ocean!!
Sariah's favorite vacation spot. The jacuzzi tub. Her comment right before this pic:
"Mom, the bubbles won't stop!!!" Hey Riah, turn the jets off!!! :) She's too cute.
This is a town called "South of the Border". There were signs for it for miles, and we couldn't believe what we saw when we got there. Yep, that's a sombrero on the top of the water tower...and a roller coaster built inside of it. Ahhhh...felt like home!!
Ok, more pics to come later!!!
