Busy, Busy, Busy

I know it's been way too long since I last posted, but I have been so busy lately. However, as I sit here and try to remember what I have done and what has happened in the past two weeks, I'm drawing a blank. Let me think...

Preschool is still going wonderful. We have learned about why we have letters and numbers, that A is for Apples, the color red and the story of Little Red Riding Hood, the primary colors, a few songs and much more. I am always amazed at how much the kids know and how smart they are. And I love that they help me have fun.

I have been going in twice a week to Porter's first grade class to help with his reading groups. Porter is in the highest reading group along with two other students and I love to listen to him read. He also got tested for the gifted program this week and we are awaiting the results.

Zachary has started playing soccer with some of the kids from church. He has had practice the past two Thursdays, so he and Rhett go and play. According to Rhett, he's really good and Zach comes home very excited. He has his first game on the 20th.

Andrew is following in his brother's footsteps and loves to play baseball. His favorite thing is to hit the ball with the bat - and he does pretty well considering he's only two. So he doesn't have to rely on us all the time to pitch the ball to him, Rhett built him a T; so he is constantly outside hitting on his own. His other favorite thing is to play hockey with the little hockey ball and sticks we found at the Dollar Store. Really, he loves anything that involves a ball.

I am running for PTO Treaurer at Porter's school. Katie (my neighbor) is running for President and between the two of us, have been very busy getting the word out and getting the staff's support. We decided that bribary was the best way to do that, so she and I made 366 cake balls (involving baking 6 cakes, mixing each with a can frosting, rolling them into 1" balls and dipping them in chocolate), then bagged them and added a little flyer with information about our school book fair (which the two of us also put on) and our PTO election information. We spent all day at the school on Friday between helping sell popcorn to the students as well as going around to each teacher to hand out our goodies. (Luckily we had a few extras so we could actually taste our hard work... YUM!!)

And I do have to mention Rhett - who has been a great support through all my craziness. He knew of the importance of me being at the school on Friday, so when Andrew woke up sick, he kindly took the day off work so he could stay home to take care of the kids! Aren't I so lucky to have such a wonderful husband?!?!

Anyways, that's my week in a nutshell. Hopefully it won't be another two weeks before I post again...
