I guess it must have been horrible because I havn't blogged since football began!!! WHAT???
Football season was a blur. I only made one of David's middle school games because they were conveniently at the same time as I was picking up Joely for dance and getting ready for girl scouts. I did go to another game but I was at the wrong location. I did not read the schedule correctly at all and because of such a thing I was overbooked.
FORTUNATLY David has his biological father, my sweet husband of 15 blissful years, that made every game. I was never more grateful for his job than I was during football season. I still feel like an "epic fail" but hopefully next year I will make it to all of them. I did however make two of his four cross country meets, yay me. He did real well in that and his coach really liked him. He also got the idea that I am a nice and helpful parent, that's only because he hasn't seen me as psycho football mom, I'll try to keep it in check next year as the same coach is the 8th grade football coach. He also coaches girls softball for the city league, bless his heart, he drafted Alice to play for him. From what I can see, the man is a saint, and we are lucky to be associaated with him. I digress a little, but tonight he made me LOL because we had a parent meeting and he said the number one rule in softball is no crying in softball. I made sure Alice heard that.
Anyhoo, David made student of the month for seventh grade boys, I was soooo proud of him, His teachers keep telling me what a joy he is in class. He's done amazing this year. My friend Yvette Fuller promised that if the boys can get through fifth and sixth grade without being the victims of fillicide they will be a joy. She's sooo on the money on this one.
David is really funny and sarcastic and still planning on saving our family from the up and coming zombie apocolypse. He wanted a rifle with a silencer for Christmas but was happy with the machete.
Quentin had his first losing season in football, he doesn't wish to talk about it, and I'm finally just able to talk about it without losing my mind. He had wonderful coaches the first two years and this year...well lets just say he's really looking forward to playing in middle school. We both regret not following his coaches to another league, but hindsight is 20/20. He's doing real well in school and trying so hard for straight a's, but his science teacher doesn't like him and only gives him an 89. CURSE HER, He's on the chess club too and he's loving his mountain bike that he got for Christmas.
Alice and Joely are both in Dance and geared up for Softball. This year is girl pitch for Alice and T ball for Joely. Just like Alice, Joely rolled snake eyes for her coach, Miss Jennifer who we've known through football for three years. She's a real sweet lady with wonderful children. I was thrilled to get the call from her that Joely would be on her team, the Diamond Divas.
Joely also requested from Santa that she get a gymnastics mat because Mrs. Carols says to practice night and day. She's perfected the cart wheen and is working on flips. She can do a back bend and does "Front limber" I'm not sure if that's what it's called, but that's what I understand her saying. Mrs. Carol is another teacher that is ready for sainthood, she won't need to collect that posthumously. She always smiles and I'm certain there is plenty of drama with all those little girls going to and from dance every day.
Another interesting thing is that Crosby got a CiCi's pizza, and we now have two subways, and a dollar tree. If they would just get me a target and an HEB I would never leave the city limits, except for church.
RObert and I celebrated 15 years of wedded bliss, what a wonderful night of memories that was. We went to Pappas Seafood and laughed and ate some of the best food. I still can't beleive it's been that long, some days it seems to have been literally just yesterday.
I'm an addict on Pineterst, and I've actually done a thing or two on that board, I dont' just stalk.
I will post some pictures and videos, but not tonight, I HAVE to get to sleep, for some reason I'm wired and that early mornign wake up at 4:30 will make me Sister Cranky Pants.
I love reading the blogs and catching up keep posting, I'm lazy and keep doing my facebook sound bites, but I hope to get back to the peace and quiet of my little blog.
