Thursday, September 10

Hello All!!!

Hope all is well out there! Things have been busy here the last few days! I had German class yesterday morning. It is amazing how fast my days are going so far without Brenna here in the morning (I hate how long the cleaning days take - I just get back home and do laundry and vacuum and then I go back to pick up Brenna). It is so great to see her excited when I pick her up - what a reward there, lol!!! She loves playing on the playground at school and I love the conversation we have on our walk home (o.k. - the conversation only goes until the ice cream shop and then someone is too busy to talk to me, lol). Brenna spends a lot of time going up and down the slides at school (she has so much fun - it is great when I get there and she doesn't see me right away and I get to just watch her play with the other kids) - it is also funny that she isn't as much of a swing person, but both days this week that they played outside I heard about her not getting to play on the swings!!
With so much playing and walking to and from school - it wasn't too surprising that Brenna napped yesterday afternoon :-) I worked on my quilt squares while things were quiet - I'm up to 18 now (only 12 more to do!) Brenna is very excited about having new things made for her - too bad for her that I am not so quick with these projects!! I couldn't believe on our walk to school today when I asked her what her favorite thing to do with mommy is - cleaning the potty! No wonder she was so upset with me this week, lol!! Guess helping mommy is a real winner for her - maybe I should set her loose on the rest of the house work, lol!!
I can't believe I am not back into my regular blogging routine yet - I totally forgot to put up my sister's birthday on Sunday!! (I have went back and corrected my Monday blog to mention it, but how did we forget this??). So sending out extra hugs and love to you Renee for your birthday. I thought you might get a kick out of seeing our whole group on the blog from an old picture of long ago!
Well, gotta get busy with the rest of my chores! Take Care!

OMG! Where did you find this one??? I love seeing how we used to dress up for halloween back home. I still remember going into Convoy and treating around some of the people that mom and dad knew! I am so glad that you are getting some you only time (plus the dog I guess) and that Brenna is doing so well at Kindergarten. It's such a blessing to watch them play and hear about their day. I am so excited that you are experiencing this like I do! The excitement on their faces when you pick them up from school is precious!
Isn't it funny what a 3 year old considers fun with mom? Use it to your advantage!
As for the birthday wish, you know I was really just giving you a hard time! We talked everyday last weekend so I know you were thinking about me. Can't wait to see your quilt top when you get it all pieced together.
Love ya!
