Lots to Post!

I try to get better at posting more often, but there just isn't enough time in the day. Another week has come and gone. Our only free evening during the week is on Thursday. So I love Thursdays! I also enjoy the kids busy schedules as they seem to enjoy being "on the go".

Last week we did some cane pole fishing at Lincoln Parish Park. Oh how we love that place! Jake has been asking to go fishing for a while, so last Sunday I loaded the kids up along with Big Mama. We actually caught about 6 fish and had a really good time out there. Thank goodness Mom was there....I just couldn't bring myself to get the fish off the hook. Geez! She also cooked the fish with Jake and he loved it, but wouldn't eat them. Go figure that Landry Grace, my picky eater, liked them.

Landry Grace also started ballet on Monday and this year says she isn't going to miss a class so that she can get the goody bag at the end of the year. I figured she wouldn't catch on to that last year, but I was wrong! Glad she has a goal:). And there are some sweet friends in her class so that makes the year even more fun.

This past week at Jake's school were spent learning the 5 senses. On Friday I joined him as they visited different classrooms to test their senses and enjoy some activities. I learned that Jake loves licorice. Ewww:)!! He has a really sweet class and has made some good friends. That's always good for a mama's heart. Another fun thing we did was to bring green cupcakes in the shape of a circle(of course cupcakes are circles as well) for snack that Friday. His class was working on circles and the color green last week. I could have made these myself but ran outta time:(. If I do this more often then baking will occur. Fun idea though.

Friday afternoon we went the Tech Bookstore to buy Tech gear for Matt. We hadn't been there since Barnes and Noble took over a year ago. I was extremely impressed. We also picked up some matching outfits for the kids since they were too cute to pass up:)! The game started out great last night but we lost by a point to the University of Houston. It was a tough loss! Landry Grace's favorite thing to do was give our seat neighbor's little girl a lot of attention. She has a fascination with babies going on right now. It's pretty cute! Jake got lost twice last night which about sent me into orbit. We've got some issues to work out there as he has got to understand not to run off. I figure it's too late to put a harness on an almost 5 year old....

And we are now into SINGLE DIGIT days until Disney! Woohoo!!! We've kept this secret for 200 days and are almost there!!!!! Right now I'm brainstorming ideas on just how to tell them. Our flight now leaves at 5:45 am(we chose this. The earlier we get there, the better!). So I'm thinking we'll tell them at dinner the night before we leave. But then will they sleep? I won't! Fun times ahead.

Oh my goodness, these pictures are too cute. Love the La Tech outfits. This is a tough, tough loss. =( But it looks like everyone still had fun!
