Moves Like Jagger

The boys were trying to imitate the dude breakdancing on the Toyota USA Corolla commercial tonight. And I was trying my hand at iMovie. Check out the results.

Explorer I: Ready for flight

Andrew 3rd grade science project was about something in space and he chose the Explorer I as his focus.  He had to create a file card (type of report) & model and be able to present it to his class. 

We were pretty proud of what we were able to do with some PVC pipe, duct tape, a funnel, and some wire (transmitting antennae).  Still waiting to find out his grade.

Marking His Territory

The same night I found Andrew with the stocking cap on, I also found a little artwork on AJ's sheets.

How I found him....

The other night, this is how I found Andrew sleeping.  No shirt, but a stocking cap.  In bed.  And he showered before bed, so his hair was awesome in the morning.

AJ wanted to work out so he can get strong to play in the NFL when he gets older, so he thought he needed to exercise one afternoon. (Please ignore the messy game closet in the background)

Sentimental Sunday: Sweetest Voice Imaginable

I’ve been blogging for over 8 years. That’s a lot of great and not so great moments documented. I main reason I blog is to remember these times… good and bad. “Sentimental Sunday”, is when I link back and remember posts I’ve written in the last several years.

Speaking of Fish...

Remember when poor little AJ missed almost a whole week of school before Christmas because he was SO very sick?  Well, it happened to be the same week that his teacher chose to "fish" him.  This is where he get recognized in front of the whole school during an assembly. 

I confess, I was a little frustrated that she chose to do it that week when he had already missed two days already.  The flu was rampant and once kids were out, they were out for a week.  So AJ (and I) missed his 'fishing'.  I realize that the assembly is first thing in the morning and often attendance is not taken until the it's over, so if AJ had just missed that one day, I would understand more.  It was a bummer, but I am super proud that she felt he was 'fish-worthy!'

Mrs. Teacher is fishing AJ. AJ has truly been a fantastic fish in our pond.  AJ is always ready to learn and takes on every task with a positive attitude  He is first to get his work out and show the class what a model student needs to do on a regular basis.  He is very attentive listener and always has his hand up ready to share his ideas. Wow AJ, keep up the great work and continue to show excellence in our classroom.

Sentimental Sunday: So you better treat him right.

New Addition: SharkBite

AJ has been asking for a gold fish for quite a while now.  Quiet a while.  So for Christmas this year, we bought him fish food, blue rocks, and chlorine drops.  You should have seen his awfully confused look when he opened the box of goods.  The fish food wasn't labeled well and he had NO idea what he was opening.

Anyway, after a minute or two we told him it meant that we would head out in the next week and let him pick out a fish.  We also talked him into a beta fish as they are prettier and seem a little more hardy that a gold fish.  This excited him!

AJ chose to name him SharkBite.  Which can hardly ever be said without also adding the "hoo ha ha" from Finding Nemo.  So we have a new centerpeice on our table right now.  I don't think that will be his permanent home, but right now he's new and exciting and get's lots of attention.

Slow Go....

If you see me barely moving tomorrow, THIS is why.  I've been taking a Cardio Sculpt class lately.  Actually for the past two months.  And you would think that my body would be getting used to working out and yet every time it's hard and every time I'm exhausted.  Often, I'm sore the next couple days as well.

I keep thinking, it will get easier, but I chalk it up to a great instructor who does a good job of mixing things up.

Despite the complaining about my sore achy muscles, I am really enjoying this class.  Plus I got some super cute workout clothes for Christmas.

However, today's class was a doozy.  We used a step, a body bar, and the yoga mat....mostly the body bar.  Oh. My. Word.  We focused on our arms on Monday and I was still feeling it, so when we worked them hard again today... I was challenged.

Plus a news crew was in the gym today... I am guess they are doing a piece about working out in the New Year and resolutions, etc...  And I just kept thinking, "Do not come in here, please, do NOT come in here!"

Let's just say, it's a good I thing showered immediately after the workout, because I am guessing I won't be able to lift my arms that high tomorrow.

Retiring the Pants

Happy New Year!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a safe New Years Eve and Day.  Between my birthday and Christmas, I was blessed with a couple new pair of sweatpants.

"Someone" seemed to think the pair I was still wearing from high school, the ones with the elastic completely stretched out to the point where they would fall down while I was walking, needed to go.  Actually, this "someone" thought they needed to go a LONG time ago, but I put up a fight because they were just so comfortable.

But finally, even I gave in and threw them away.  Goodbye Wildcat sweats.  You were well loved.
