Wordless Wednesday

Saturday, June 07, 2008


Yesterday was our first official day of summer. We are so glad school is out. We all slept late and Reid made eggs and bacon for me and Macy. It was really good. He is a good little breakfast chef. He learned that from his Daddy. :) Why is it that Dad's like to cook breakfast foods? I remember my Dad always making pancakes. And it was usually for supper. I guess breakfast is easy. ha!
BUT, I have already heard the famous words....I'M BORED. yikes...already? Well, I have lots for them to do but cleaning their rooms is not what they have in mind. So, I think I will be spending alot of time at the pool. Well, after they clean at least some of their room. And I have to clean my room, too. My room is probably worse than theirs. I need to be an example. :) Hey, by the time I clean everything else in this house I'm too tired to clean my room. I did make my bed this morning, Hey, I'm trying.
How do some moms keep things so organized? Or make it look so easy? It makes me crazy.

It's no surprise to my realllllllyyyyyy close friends that I am a terrible reader. In fact, I often buy a books and get thru one to two chapters and decide that I'd rather dust my house or mow the yard than read. I know, I'm weird. I never had that love of reading that my friends have. I wish I did. I am a wannabe reader. I will buy books just because the cover is pretty. I can read blogs all day but books....ewww! I think, too, that I have adult ADHD. Anywho, thats another story.

So, today as I was cleaning all the paper work out from behind the phone, I found Reid's summer reading list for his AP classes for Jr. High. Poor thing. He does great in reading class but has my desire for books. He won't just pick up a book and read. I'm so sad about that. I really want him to be a good reader. So, this summer guess what we will be doing? Well, I decided I would read with him. You know, be an example! HA HA. So, our first read.... "Where the Red Fern Grows". I read some of this book in Jr. High but then I realized there was a movie and well, thats all she wrote. I am more of a movie buff...... :)

Any advice on learning how to be a better reader? :)

In the merry month of May

I can't believe the month of May is over. I think this is the busiest I have been in a long time. It was CRAZY! Here are some highlights of our busy but fun wonderful month of May....

Baseball has taken over our life. Its so much fun and my little man loves the game. I love getting to watch him play. He is a good little player! He even hit an in the park homerun this year and got some good pitching time. :)

Macy turned 6!!!! I can't believe my baby is ready for 1st grade!

Of course, we had to have a Hannah Montana party...compete with guitar cake.

We had her party at a pottery place. Each kid got to paint a tile. It was so fun. Crazy but fun!

Holly and family, Ash and Avery got to join in on the fun. I was SO glad they came!

Me and my baby girl. She melts my heart.

OK...Here is Teacher Appreciation Week. Oh my, can you say overboard? These schools! These Moms....HA!

Then, my sweet niece, Mindy graduated from Texas A&M. We are so proud of her. I felt like one of my kids were graduating. I have known her since she was 2. I was teary eyed watching her walk across that stage. She is one remarkable woman! I am proud to be her aunt.

This is Mindys sweetheart, Will. Isn't he a cutie! And he is just as sweet. He treats Mindy like a princess! And just look at that pic of Troy and Will.....Mindy and I think they look like long lost brothers! We had went bowling that night and they has us laughing so hard. Don't you think they look similar?? Troy just has 15 years on him! Haha!

Macy LOVES her Mindy!

Daddy trying to teach Macy how its done. Troy is a pretty good bowler!

Now, next...Macy's dance recital! Its is always held at the Opera House in Galveston. It is a BIG deal! They work on the dances all year. This year she danced to "On the Good Ship Lollipop" and "Be Our Guest" (from Beauty and the Beast). It was SO cute! And I thought she looked just adorable! Here she is looking like Shirley Temple. Granny and Van made the trip to see her. We were so glad. I am mad that we didn't get a picture of them with her. Sorry, Granny! What was I thinking? We love you and am so glad y'all came. Avery and Ashley also made the trip! I think Avery loved the dancing. Her face lit up and she was clapping when the first little dancers came out! I love that girl!! Her facial expressions are priceless! It was a fun day with everyone. We all went our to eat at Tortugas afterwards. We sure missed Neena and Papaw. Paps was at home puking his guts up. Sorry Paps!

Here is the class doing their best Belle dance from Beauty and the Beast!

My sweet little Belle really concentrating!

The family after the performance! Reid was so glad it was over! HA

Then....drumroll, please.....I turned 35. Enough said. My sweet husband did get me some good presents, flowers and a yummy cake. Thanks, honey...I love you!

And lets don't forget field day! What a hot month for field day. Whose idea was that?

Reids favorite part of field day....water guns!

Reids class in a major tug-of-war competition!

Now do you see why I haven't been blogging? WHEW! I'm glad May is over. Oh, and in all this, I had strep throat and Macy had pink eye. I really had no time to be sick! HA! Troy took off work for a few days so I could lay in bed. Boy, that felt good. Well, not to be sick but to be in my bed with the door shut....AH, pure bliss!
