So, I will do a run down of the last 6 months...list style....kind of because I explain too much and it turned into more of a novel than a list.
Since my last post....
*I attended "Muffins with Mom" with Carter during his Kindergarten class. (Answers Carter gave to questions asked by the teacher were read aloud. His favorite thing about me was that I cook him dinner every night. Apparently he could not think of one thing he likes about me because the answer he gave me was a flat out lie! All the other mothers kind of gasped when the teacher read that. It is nice to know I am no the only one that does not cook every night but shhh...no one has to know).
*Carter finished Kindergarten
*Summer Break! Lots of baseball played and watched. Carter was an awesome 3rd baseman and did very well hitting the ball this year in "coach pitch". We are already excited for next summer! This year games finally got exciting to watch vs. the earlier years of kids playing in the dirt and crying when their teammates got the ball.
*Lots of lost teeth and Tooth Fairy visits. (while out of town we were all sleeping in the same room and one night I happened to empty the contents of my pocket onto the dresser. Coincidentally, Carter lost a tooth that day and was expecting a visit from the Tooth Fairy...who forgot to do her duty and show up! When Carter discovered absolutely nothing under his pillow he assumed the tooth Fairy did not want to wake him and saw that she had left his money on the dresser. $7.00 (in pocket change) is pretty steep for a tooth. He has been pretty annoyed that the Tooth Fairy has not kept up with such ambitious payments. Even still, Josh will leave $3.00...inflation much? What happened to the good 'ol days of being excited about 2 quarters under the pillow?)
*July 4th...we drove cross county to Twin Falls, ID. It was an eventful drive this time as our car has decided it is getting old and decrepit and does not like making that drive. We overheated A LOT! But we made it. Then almost immediately got called back home for a business meeting. I was pretty bummed about that because I had planned to stay the entire month of July....sigh. A week was not long enough...lots of people not seen...many people not seen long enough. But loved being home even for those few days!
*Drove all the way across the country back home.
*Celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary!!
What better way than a selection of desserts from Barnes and Noble's Starbucks (and of course a molten lava cake from Chili's)
*Carter started 1st grade! August 6th was back to school. His teacher is Ms. Welch and Ms. Jen is the assistant. They are awesome! I have been extremely pleased so far with how the year is going.
*We went on a Disney cruise!! The first time for all of us and we had a blast! I need to do a whole trip report for this.
*I became a Paparazzi Consultant! Out of my own free will even! I signed up in September and I have seriously loved every minute of it! Over the past few years I have loved shopping for costume jewelry to jazz up an outfit. I have never been a fan of expensive jewelry and do not own a single piece and would not even consider it. So when I discovered $5.00 jewelry that I could order AND sell...heck yes! I just did my first big event yesterday and it was a success! I am loving it! The other day I went to my "store" and giggled like a kid in a candy store as I was picking out pieces to wear. So fun! You should try it;)
Oh and we moved twice! Just out of our house...into the office...and then onto the property we manage. We will stay on the property now until we sell it. I love our little home and our little town and my little family and our little life.
