NJ starts school (August 19, 2008)

After five years of waiting this dreaded year arrived when NJ was to start school but, the State of Arkansas changed the birthday cutoff and NJ was 7 days shy of being old enough to start Kindergarten. I thought long and hard and wanted her to do something more than MDO this year. I found the most wonderful school for her, it is a Church of Christ Montesory school. On August 19th we woke up at 5:30 am and got ready to make the long trip to Little Rock. Nervous NJ was a little scared but absolutly loved her new school. A couple of her friends from MDO (Kaylee and Camille) also go to her new school which really helped her get over being nervous.

I have also enjoyed taking her to school. The cars line up and all the kids hangout the window and yell at each other. The teachers pick the girls up and bring them back to their car so moms don't have to get out in the rain or the heat.

I hope the rest of the year is as great as this first month!!!

NJ my dancer (August 18, 2008)

After 6 months of changing her mind several times a day DANCE finally won out over cheer leading and gymnastics. The weeks after registration were filled with many hours of wanting to know when she actually got to start. The day finally arrived and the poor girl was a nervous wreck (a bad habit that she gets from her mom). When class started she was fine and she has been excited to go every week. NJ loves dance and is already talking about trying out for the Nut Cracker next year.

We are alive!!!

I am so very sorry that my blog has been neglected but life has just been flying by.

Mark is home on leave so we are enjoying him.

NJ started dance and school so we are just running more than we aren't.

We live in Little Rock half the week and half the week at our house so I spent my time at home doing laundry and packing again.

OK, none of those are good enough reasons to forget about my internet friends but that is what has been going on. I will post on all our excitement when I get a chance to breath!!

Love to all~
