Quick Boring Update

Sorry -- we've just been REALLY busy. The trip to Las Vegas kicked our butts, and we are still recovering. I've got to travel for work today, so I'm leaving early, and getting home late.

Connor has a mild case of croup, but the steroids kicked it immediately. Duncan continues to demonstrate tween obnoxiousness. Scouts and soccer are in full swing, so our evenings are busy. Connor's team lost 0-3 to the Pirates this past Saturday. He had a field trip to Vulcan materials quarry on Monday. Yesterday they mailed their "Flat Stanley" letters out. Hopefully today his class will get a postcard from Flat Stanley's visit to Las Vegas!

The kittens continue to grow. Charles introduced Morgan to her first pedicure last night, and those little raptor claws are much shorter now. He said he'll need help getting Brigit to hold still for hers.

More this weekend -- I don't have another free evening until Friday!!!

Thank you Flickr

Go here to see the majority of my Vegas pictures uploaded to FLICKR. I haven't labelled all of them yet, but you'll get the idea.

Viva Las Vegas!!!

Holy cow... Charles is a horror movie freak, and he surfs a website called FearNet. He entered a contest to win a trip to Las Vegas to see the world premiere of Resident Evil: Extinction. Well he woke me up at 2am last night to let me know he won!!! So Thursday morning at 7:30 am a car picks us up, and takes us to the airport for our whirlwind trip to Las Vegas. We have fabulous friends who are keeping our kids Thursday evening for us, and we'll return home from our trip at 10:00 p.m. Friday night.

WooHOO. So what's fun to do in the middle of the night in Las Vegas?!

First Soccer Game

Dragons 5, Rangers 4

GO DRAGONS!!! They did awesome... they played their positions (new this year), worked as a team, and listened to their coach. I'm such a proud soccer mom!

Fall is going to be very short at this pace! Connor had his first yellow light at school for playing in the water in the bathroom. He wasn't terribly upset about it, and neither was I. We'll see how he feels on Friday when he doesn't get his reward for the week since it wasn't all green lights.

Last night we went to fellowship, and Connor had his first night in the Children's Choir (he was previously in the preschool choir). I hope he really enjoys it. He had to draw a picture in Sunday school of what God called him to do... he told Ms. Lynn that God called him to sing.

Our Weekend

Here we are, "official" members of Ardmore UMC!! That took up alot of our Sunday, obviously. We spent alot of Saturday shopping for clothes for the kids. Our big excursion was to the $2 theater to see Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. Both of us really enjoyed it. Oh, and new kitten pictures up on the photo blog!

No Neglect Intended

I've been slammed this week! Soccer has started for Connor, and we had two nights of practice this week. I made it to the gym on Wednesday, my mother-in-law is here until Sunday, and we are (finally) joining the church on Sunday so that's a big deal. I'm taking a 30 day class at Big Picture Scrapbooking, and I'm behind on my homework for the week, and the anniversary crop at Scrap Addict starts this weekend. Busy busy busy! New pictures are up on the photo blog!

Hmmm, it was a very VERY busy week at work last week. It isn't going to slow down anytime soon either.

Charles had his sleep study Thursday night, and then another Friday night to titrate the CPAP. Hopefully they'll get him his soon and we'll see some improvements. The kids went with Charles to have lunch with his mother today, and then they went shopping for church clothes. We are joining the church here next weekend, so we're getting ready for that.

The kittens are growing like little weeds and cute as a button. I posted a picture of Morgan attacking my purse on the photo blog.
