Class went well... I finished a couple more pages. I wish, I was a little quicker getting them out, but my brain just doesn't work that fast. Ya, Know!!! Got some of my christmas pictures done, and now I'm hoping to make it on to birthdays from the past 4 years! I know a bit behind.
Tee-ball sign up went well. I was hoping to see a few more parents out and interested in it, but we got a few. That is a start... I just hope for sucess, and that i can make it work out. I think I did well last year with my other team. Plus I have friends willing to help me. Though, I have also got to help with Hunter's team, so I shall be busy this fall. That I do know!

What else to tell you... well there is really only so much one has happen in a day. Not much new here today. Lily had a nice play date with her sister Moxie. They got alittle aggressive...but had a good time. Lily also got a nice bath, and smells so good now. YEAH! :)

Right now i'm watching AUGUST RUSH.... Not a bad movie thus far. I think that it will be good. Been waiting for it to come out...but i'm not one for sitting and just relaxing. I really don't know how. It is very difficult for me. I have to keep on my toes every minute of the day.

Tomorrow brings some undesirable work. We have to repaint some walls at my brother in-laws house. He rents, and is getting ready to move out. So, I have to paint the walls that i couldn't leave blank when we lived there. One that stands out the most was a bright Red wall in the kitchen. Therefore, now my dear husband has to go paint them tomorrow. I'm going to stay with my kids, and figure out what we are going to do. I'm thinking we might make some sugar cookies for easter. I think it would be a nice project, if everyone is on the same page in the morning. If it is not frezzing out I would like to get out and go for a walk as well. Spring may be here but it needs a bit of a push to get it to feel like it. :)
Well, I don't want to bore you to death, so I'm off to bed soon. Take care!

Thank Goodness its friday!

Friday is finally here. Slow going this week, as it has been a long week. I'm exciting for the weekend to be here. Though, it may be filled with lots of stuff to do! Easter is almost here. Our kids already got their big present, if you look below to the new puppy! :) Of course we got them a couple of small items for the day, but they seem to be pretty happy with just the puppy. Anywho, I got off track. Today is filled with lots of errands. I was suppose to volunteer at my sons school today for their winter carnival...but it is way to windy out there so it was canceled. I think he is going to be a bit disappointed. :(
So instead I now get to go help my brother in-law with his built up collection of returnables, from last year! Like 20 or so bags... should be interesting. Lily is off to a puppy play date with her sister Moxie, and to get a nice bath, to smell oh so pretty! Then I have to go to fairfield to pick my husband up from school. To rush home for Rachel, and go to a baseball sign-up for the kids. After which I am off to my weekly friday night Scrapbooking class. I love to scrapbook. It is a great relaxing project that you get to reminiss over pictures of the past. Then you have a nice book to show off when you are done. Myself, I'm making a book for each child to have of their childhood memories.. I think it will be nice when completed. So, there you have my friday in a nutshell. ;) Hope you all have a good friday yourself.

The frist day of spring!

Today was the frist day of SPRING!!! I would say YIPPEE, but I think that any of you in maine would agree with me... how was this the frist day of spring??? Did you see the sun? As I did not. :) I was hoping for a really nice sunny spring like day. Instead I got a snowy, windy, cold day...... That started off with my car getting stuck in the driveway! UGH! I tried to not let that get me down though. I hope that things get better. My family is desperate to see some sun, and be able to spend time outside without getting wet!!! Happy Spring Everyone!


Were to begin... Well, I'm new at this so bare with me. I wanted to just kinda give you a family update. Things are going pretty good here. Andy is finishing up his last year at kvcc, and is graduating in may.....(or so we hope) He is exciting and ner vous to embark on this new adventure in our life. Hunter is almost done his frist year of school. Wow, can you believe it?? I mean were does the time go? I can't believe how much has past this year. He is so big, and helpful. He is really a big treasure here sometime. Hunter has learned so much this year. I hope that he knows how proud of him, i am. Rachel is so big now. Preschool is doing really well for her. She enjoys the time with her friends. She is a very smart little girl. Unfortunetly due to her birthday being so late in october, she can't start kindergarten this upcoming year. I'm looking to homeschool her, but have not made any final decisions. Sage has just recently turned 3 and exploring it very well. Pushing limits and learning to see how far she can get. The girl is so full of life, its amazing. She brings so many smiles to my day. As challenging as she can be.... its fun! With spring approaching we are gearing up to start spring sports. As our family loves to be outside. I'm starting a new Tee-ball team for preschoolers thru the Rec department here in Embden. I'm looking forward to that, and the girls can't wait to start. Hunter is graduating to big boy baseball, that is coach pitched this year. He is also very excited for that to start. There you have our spring update. Hope this finds everyone healthy and happy! :)

A new puppy!

I finally got brave! My kids have been bugging me for a new puppy. We always told them no, as we really had no place for one at the time. Since we moved last fall, they kept on us. Hunter my oldest asked again in the fall, and I said when we finish moving maybe. So, I found that we had to give in. An oppurtunity arose, and I couldn't just stand by any longer. As an early easter present the kids got an 8 week old black lab puppy. A week early! :) Her name is Lily, and she is a very cute puppy. She is pretty well behaved, although we are going thru the chewing stage right now. This is my frist dog in my life, so it is taking some getting used to. She is pretty mellow... our friend got her sister who is the exact opposite. Lily and Moxie like to get together for play dates.
