fourth grade science project?!?!?!


Okay so I will admit that we tend to wait until the last minute when it comes to projects. Hannah had, however done all of the work on her project aside from putting it on her project board. That should be the easy part. I had the photos on my camera and had planned on taking my memory card to Wolf Camera yesterday and getting in on those 6 cent prints during my lunch break...................Nope that did not happen. We ran late leaving me with not enough time so I got home last night and thought I would load my camera software onto this relic of a computer.****Ya'll remember my laptop crashed a couple of weeks ago**** After about 1 1/2 hours I get these photos loaded and then uploaded onto Walmarts site so that I can go pick them up. Walmart is all night right? Hmmm, someone should tell the photo processing center! I was ready to process my order when it told me my prints would be ready after 10am today! TODAY! Her project is due TODAY! I cant wait that long! So it is after 8pm and I drove as fast as I could to Walgreens**we live in a small town, it closes at 10***. I was ready to beg! Luckily they were able to get the photos ready just in time. What was this project about you ask? Water density.... I am pretty sure the lady thought I was crazy scanning through photos of eggs in cups of water!

Wow, I dont even have words!

Yeah I know! Me not having words is hard to believe! So I was looking at my myspace account yesterday. I have been trying to delete the thing for a while, but since I no longer have the email that I had when I signed up it has been next to impossible. Or maybe there was a reason that I havent been able to delete it. Maybe.... You see I got a friend request yesterday and when I opened it I was taken back a little. It was from my sister.....my half sister....we have the same father. I have always known she was out there and I have always known she was a little bit older than me, but other than that i only knew her first name. She even wrote a little note on her request. She wasn't 100% sure that I was who she was looking for. She was looking for me! Wow, I dont even know what to say! So naturally I decided to check out her photos on her profile. I had to get a glimpse of her. I was curiouse if we looked alike. I wanted to see if she had kids and if they had any of the same features that my kids have. The funny thing is that I didn't accept her friend request right away. I needed time to process this. I did accept it just a moment ago, but I still need time to process this. I have chosen not to have a relationship with the man that is our biological father. He made a decision before I was born to not be in my life and I am fine with that. I have wondered about my siblings that are out there and I have met a few of them, but there were some that I never would have dreamed I would have contact with and she was one of them. Wow!

Oh and the post I was promising....I am still working on it.

Alot On My Mind....

I am not quite ready to get into details, but I have had a lot on my mind lately. I am still working on putting it into blog form so please stay tuned cause I am pretty sure you dont want to miss this. I do have to ask for permission to post some things first. I don't like to post about people without asking usually. Not that I am worried. I think that this person wont mind one bit! Now I am not saying anything else.. you will have to wait and see!

6,422

I will be the first to admit that I DO NOT like to punish my kids. Did you three hear that? Even though you all might think that I do, well your wrong. When our cell phone bill came the other day I had to lay down the law. It was time. Now I want you all to know that Kristen has been very good about not abusing her phone, however I think she took "unlimited text messages" too far.
.
.
.
.....6,422!
That is the number of texts that were used by her line in one month!
.
.
....6,422 just in case you did not get it the first time!

Let me also add that she is a straight A student and one of the sweetest kids you will ever meet. She just likes to text. So we had to sit down and discuss how texting should not take over your life.....and the little girl on Inside Edition who sent out over 15,000 in a month did NOT need competition. Honestly I don't think a child can truly discover who they are if they are bound by their cell phone. Needless to say, the phone will not be by her side 24 hours a day from now on. Too harsh?.... I think not!

Flying Kites

I was at Walmart the other day getting a birthday present when I came across these kites that were only $1!!!! Now they were not huge or fancy but being a person who has not had any luck with kites I thought the kids would enjoy them. They did. Actually they have taken them out a few times so I think it is safe to say they were worth the three dollars it cost to buy one for each of them!

A Fighting Chance

UPDATE**** Both of these little guys failed to survive through the night :( I guess we will test our tank before putting new ones in. If any of you know a thing or two about gold fish let me know cause I dont know as much as I thought!


Meet these two little guys. They really dont have names, but they are our two goldfish. We had three. One had passed when we came home today. I cleaned the tank and these guys are back in. I noticed a couple of days ago that all three of our fish were a little on the lethargic side and I not being expert really didnt know what to do. So now that I have cleaned their tank these two are fighting to remain alive. I can tell that they are struggling, but we are hoping that if they can make it through the night they might make it longer. We had fish when the girls were small and never had much trouble with them Actually we had one that lived for quite some time. So say a little prayer tonight that our two little fish will make it.

Crazy Love

I am about half way through this book. It is "Crazy Love" by Frances Chan. I wanted to share because this book is wonderful! This book challenges us to take a look at our own relationship with God and what steps we can take to keep from being "lukewarm" . I hope that you all will give it a shot. As for me I think I am going to go and read some more!

Changes....

I am learning........alot........about my blog. So you will notice some changes as I learn more cause I will be experimenting on my own blog!

Pretty sure His Face is Never Clean!

Daddy thought that it would be a good idea to give the kids KitKat bars in the car on the way home. In the hands of a 3 year old they usually melt faster than they can be eaten! On second thought maybe not such a good idea! I took this picture of Brian "pillow surfing" in the kitchen the other day. Again with the dirty face! As for the pillow surfing, that is what he said he was doing..........yeah......okay then.

Our office flooded!







Yesterday around 4pm the storms hit and within 15 inutes the dental office that I work at was flooding.......bad.......with patients inside........and there was water........lots of it.........in the parking lotbehind the office..........where our cars were parked.................and it was knee deep...........how do I know it was knee deep you ask?.........because when I had to move cars to higher ground........which meant wading through the water...............that was knee deep.

However on a brighter note, I am at the office right now and the cleaners got here so fast that the damage may not be as bad as we thought!
