~ a certain little special someone' 9th birthday is NEXT WEEK . . . until today, we hadn't discussed a thing for it! if you know me, that's not normal as we normally have these planned out a month in advance! thankfully he settled on a simple birthday party this year. he went from wanting a "Lego-Star Wars-Camp Out-Movie-Sleepover to "how about a pool party"? I tried not to sound too excited b/c that would change his mind for sure! We are ALL ABOUT the home party and up until this year have not done a party any other way. i asked JM if we could still consider this a "home party" since it's only $10 to reserve the pool. he smiled & agreed.
~ gathering ideas to love on, appreciate, spoil, welcome back the ELES teachers. this will be my first time on PTA and my position is hospitality. i'm pretty excited!
~ speaking of welcoming back the teachers . . . Back to School . . . aaah. i can't believe it and am not ready for the boys to head back. that means we have a 1st & 3rd grader. double aaaah!
~ then i get to welcome a new bunch of 4 year olds into my little classroom. i've met them all over the last week and am thrilled about this year. they are going to be a precious, sweet bunch!
~ really desiring to get back on track with good food choices for our family. i need some terri holler encouragement about now. it does help that a few of my friends are taking on this way of life as well. that will be motivation for us!
~ not to mention the dentist appointments, family stuff, laundry, dirty dog, tall grass, etc.
so obviously my mind is going in all directions and i like most of the directions it is going in. i'd prefer not to have to do laundry or give roxy a bath though.
