Sad days to come!

I am really bummed out! We found out not too long ago that some dear friends of ours are moving away! They are so special to us! Their teen daughters babysit for us. And their youngest daughter was in Mark's class last year. Also *mom* was a dear, dear friend of mine! We wish them all the luck in the world! They will really be missed in this house! *HUGS*

Forgot this story till today!

Alexis told me the other day that she didn't like boys if they were going to snore like her g-pa!(refering to her g-pa Harvey) I thought that was hilarious! I hope she marries a silent sleeper like her daddy then! *wink* *wink*

When I am wrong I admit it!

I was wrong! I was convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that David A would be the next American Idol but it wasn't it is David Cook! He is great too! BTW! I am happy for him as well I just was rooting for the 17yo boy to have a shot at stardom! He had such a pure voice.

Anyway on the news I saw tonight one of the boys that tried out and made the top 50 who was from IA is going to be signing a Christian record deal! That is great to hear!

I know we haven't seen the end of David A though!

Idol finale tonight!

Man did David Archuleta take it home last night! He blew me away! A 17yo boy singing like a pro! Wow! He knocked out the competition! GO DAVID A!

Two of our good friends are moving back to Creston!

I am so excited we found out recently that Tina and Joseph are moving back to Creston! YAY! I can't wait for them to be back here. It will be nice for JR to have his old spaides partner back ;)

I am getting really excited about SUMMER!

I know some moms dread the time when they have the kids home all summer, but I am really looking forward to it. I hope things are as great as I am hoping. We have lots of plans.

We are hoping to get a pool pass, we also got a trampoline and finally got the basketball hoop up JR got for his birthday from his mom and dad like 2 years ago or so (maybe even more). It has just been collecting dust for a long time up in the rafters of the garage! If we can find a sitter for Ethan for NYR we are also hoping to go to that as well (can't imagine how rough it would be to take a stubborn, nap needing baby there).

I miss spending time with my kids! I feel like I miss out on so much when they are in school! Don't get me wrong I do enjoy the break too. I think that is why I miss them so much. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder!

I am also planning on having 2 of the kids' best friends for babysitting 1-2 days a week. They will enjoy that too!

Looking forward to dance being over and cub scouts letting up a bit. Only special activities, like camping and such.

Kids are starting up t-ball and baseball though so I don't think we will be any less busy really. Although they won't have school and homework. I really want to keep practicing reading with Lex though she will loose so much over the summer if we don't.

Idol Results tonight!

Ok, I have not posted about Idol for a long time but I really can't not post anything about all this right now. Jason Castro is going home. WOW! I just can't believe how much talent is in this compatition! I think David Archuleta will take the whole thing.

Happy Mother's Day

I know, I know, it's not quite Mother's Day yet, but I am going to be busy for the rest of the week and don't know if I will be able to post anything. So Happy Mother's Day to you all! ENJOY YOUR DAY!

Not only is Ethan a brainiac but a PERFECTIONIST!

Last night I was tucking him in and he moved his pillow probably 5-7 times and trying it out now and then to get it in just the right place! He moved it and then tried it and did it again until he got it just right and in the center might I add! He is so like his daddy! LOL
