Just some Random Thoughts

Sometimes my kids amaze me , I mean really make me so proud. I get busy with this one and the other and I sometimes wonder if they really understand what I try so hard to let them know what is important.

Well Sunday , Ridge said to me what are we gonna do tomorrow. I sorta looked at him and said well I'm not real sure but probably do some fun stuff. I asked him Why do you have something in mind ??? He said well Mom I would like to go to the library and get some new books to read.

I was def shocked. I have the kids read a half hr after breakfast and then have a little computer time. Somedays it doesn't work that way but I still get it in. I had planned on giving them a week off since it is vacation and everyone had Awesome grade cards. I told him we can go to the library. So yesterday after breakfast we were off to the library. It made me feel so good that they all were that excited about reading. We ran into a teacher and later that day she sent me a message. She told you are doing so super that they wanted to go on there own. I felt great and the kids were so happy to have new books. We usually go every two weeks.

So for supper I planned a cookout which was sorta good. Paul called me at lunch and said he had to work ten hrs everyday so he would be late for supper anyway. We just had some Hamburgers and Hot Dogs. I made some Mac Salad too.

The kids also have a job to do this week for our sweet neighbor lady that made the girls outfits. Her brother passed away on Sunday. She had to go out of town and won't be back until Sunday. So they are going over to her apt which is close to us to watch her cat and dog. They will go over 4 times a day to check on them. I made her a plate at supper last night cause I know she was so upset and worried but I told her we are praying for you and the animals will be ok.

These kids are just so Amazing ........

Oh yeah Happy Flag Day !!!!!!

I love it! We just visited the library today too and the girls were super excited. I was excited too, to get some books....I usually buy them at the bookstore and this will be much better for my bank account!! Ha!

that was nice of you, Caroline, to make a plate for your neighbor lady; I am sure she appreciated it so much and I know amongst her sadness, she won't have to worry about her pets because I know your brood will lovingly take care of them!

good for Ridge for wanting to go to the library to get books! I think that is a good schedule you have them on to read for 1/2 hour in the morning! Still gives them plenty of time in the day to do other things!
