I'm Watering....

You have to read this: http://thepioneerwoman.com/blog/2010/09/ten-important-things-ive-learned-about-blogging/ to understand my title. I am following #2.

I have only wrote TWO blogs and already feel as though I have hit a "writer's block" (and #9). Oh no!

Let's see...we made the decision to help out our friend's by keeping their almost 3 yr old Golden Retriever. We like dogs! But I didn't think about how mobile Colton is becoming when I said "yes, let us keep your dog!". It quickly taught me that I do NOT want a dog while having a young child. She is a great dog and I'm sure she is going through a lot with our friends moving and not really knowing what is going on. But she sure did like Colton being down on the floor! And his toys! And milk duds out of our candy bowl. And cleaning our glass door with her tongue. And jumping up on our bed wanting to sleep with us. So needless to say her trip at our house was cut short. She came Friday night and left Monday night. I felt like the crappiest friend ever when I said it wasn't going to work out. But luckily she is able to go stay with her "grandma" in Arkansas.

Football is in full swing! It has been for awhile now...we go Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday for practice. And our game day is Saturday! Zack LOVES football! He says that he will one day play for OSU (no matter how much grief he gets from some of our family, eh eh Uncle Jeff), then he wants to join the Army, get out and play for the NFL. Then he wants to open a Taco Stand! He loves Tacos & Burritos! Our team just recently had a McPlayer's Night at McDonald's to help raise some more money for our team, we raised over $400! We already have some wonderful sponsors such as: Forest Ridge Tag Agency, Toni Johnson Salon & Spa, Cakes Galore, PT Enterprises, Tint Tek Auto, Hillenburg Oil Company, Tulsa National Bank, Joseph Enterprises, Darrell Wear (Chinowth & Cohen), and Smith All-Fab! We really appreciate our sponsors! It takes a lot of the costs off of the parents and allows us to do so much more for our boys.

This year my daughter decided to not take dance :-( she has taken dance since she was 3 years old. Alan and I have already mentioned the Recital, which is always in May, to just have her shoot us down by saying "I'm not in dance this year". Ugh! She chose to try Gymnastics, which she really likes so far. My niece is also taking Gymnastics with her. Emilee is also doing band. She is playing the flute. And man, I am so thankful that I am not the 6th grade band teacher. LOL!

Colton is almost 7 months old. That means he is just 5 months away from his FIRST birthday! Where has the time gone for my last baby? Why does it go soooo fast? As I mentioned earlier...he has become mobile! He army scoots everywhere! He is really fast in his walker...he loves to ram into my legs while I am cooking. And he is starting to pull up onto the couch, chair, our legs, etc to stand up! Oh. My. Goodness. I am not ready for him to walk yet!

We have some fun events coming up in the next few weeks. A high school football game. Bunco. A 10th birthday party. School events. And hopefully some relaxing (haha) time to spend with family and friends in the midst of this crazy life!

I felt bad that we didn't keep my gma's cat that we "inherited" but, now it is doing soo much better at my sister's -It didn't get along with our other pets/kids-Can you say alpha cat! Anyways sounds like you got a lot going on - My daughter has decided she's "too old" to be a girl scout so, seeing what else she wants to do. Well,have a good day and keep watering! :)

Zack has some great life plans! Love it! I started band in 6th grade, too. I had some great urge to play the clarinet, and WOW was I terrible! A switch to the trumpet proved a positive one, and I was labeled a "band geek" till I finally got to quit junior year. But in a nerdy way, it was fun! Good for her!
