MIA Part II????

Ok, so it hasn't quite been FIVE months since my last post... it's only been FOUR.... Baby steps!  I'm currently avoiding writing a paper which is due tomorrow for grad school. I could also be packing for vacation...neither of those sound as much fun as writing a blog post! (ha!) No, truthfully, I've been riding the insomnia train for the past few weeks.  Hopefully that subsides sooner than later.


        Dad and Kaiser -- Checkin' the Crops

Emma's doing a great job keeping up on her reading... but in her spare time, she's turning into an Olympic swimmer.  She is going to be a big, bad first grader... starting in just over five weeks.   Let's just delete that... that means I go back to work in four weeks (AAHHH!!) so let's just ignore that.  This summer has gone by SO quickly! I only have two more classes until I graduate from grad school!  I am really ready for graduation.  I want to be done so my sleep patterns can return to normal! I think Eric is way more excited than me for December....I have been a tad MIA in the cooking and cleaning department in order to do school work.  I'm elbow deep in grad work, helping Keri take photos for and compile our Peace Parish Directory, helping plan a benefit (see below), planning a PTO fundraiser called the BOBCAT DASH (super-duper excited!), and other classes I'm taking this summer other than my graduate courses.  My big check mark off my list today was scanning, sorting, inputting, and matching 752 books with their ISBN codes into a database for my classroom library for Daily 5 / CAFE this fall!  That may sound extremely boring to some of you, but I'm ecstatic!  

Kaiser is also growing some fins this summer.  He has a smile that can knock a grown man to his knees... seriously.  He uses it as a weapon on me multiple times a day.   He also has grown fond of calling me, "Mommy Dearest" thanks to my good friend, Vicky, and my mother.  He also now screams, "NO WIRE HANGERS"... if you have no idea what I'm talking about... just YouTube it and you'll see a clip of a disturbed movie I watched repeatedly when I was a kid.  Why my son now refers to me as the late Joan Crawford at her best? Who knows...

In a couple weeks, we'll be hosting a benefit lunch, auction, bags tournament, bake sale, candle sales, etc. for my cousin Amanda's family.  Her husband was in an ATV accident about two months ago, so we're trying to help them out with some of the medical bills resulting from the hospital bills and Bryant being off of work in addition to her already being home on maternity leave with Baby Brodie.  We've had a great turn out so far and it looks as though we'll have a great line up for auction items as well as some great food, fun, and fellowship.  If you want more information, would like to donate an item for the auction, or have some advice :) just shoot me an email or a comment!

                                               Come one -- come all!

Alright -- off to bed... trying to get back to those "normal" sleeping patterns... slowly, but surely!

Shine (RAINNNNNN) on!
