Avery's Thanksgiving play

Posted by Picasa

Soccer is OVER!!

You can only imagine how cold we were Monday night~it was in the 40's with the wind raging!! Avery had on 2 jackets, tights, gloves, and ear warmers! She looked like the marshmallow man under her soccer shirt. Her jacket is a very thick one and with the shirt on top of it she looked so funny. Everyone was laughing~she loved it.

After the last game, the team went to Ci Ci's pizza and got their trophy!! Avery loved it, and the pizza was not so bad!!

These are Tyson's new favorite thing to wear! We were in Chili's with them on in this picture. It is the cutest thing with his rubber boots!!

Josh gets Tyson up and ready after Avery and I leave in the mornings and I think by looking at the picture, his daddy spoils him a little!! Breakfast in bed! So sweet!
We took the kids to ULM to see a game. They had a blast. We sat SO high, I was a nervous wreck! There were no railings, just high!

It's been a while!

Sorry it's been so long! I am up to my ears in with work and taking care of the kids. I have not adjusted so well to going back to work, so maybe things will slow down soon and I can get back to business. Avery is doing GREAT in school. She is loving it and her work is great. She is learning to read and doing very well! She starts soccer practice Friday afternoon, so we went tonight and got her supplies! She and the two girls across the street are on the same team, so we all went together tonight to get their cleats, shin guards, and shorts. They were three excited little girls. As far as we know, the first game will be Saturday, Oct. 3. We don't know the times yet, but I'll try to let everyone know when we find out.

Tyson...................................I put him in bed and he told me he needed to go to the bathroom, so I let him get up and go by himself, only to think about 10 minutes later that he sure was quiet...........This is what he was doing! He found the powder. I had to crop the picture because he didn't have anything on, but you should see our bathroom floor! It's covered with powder. sweet little man. You can't get onto a smile like that.

Off to Mrs. Shannon's

I had a job interview today on a short notice, so Tyson stayed with our neighbor, Mrs. Shannon! He was SO excited. She has 3 kids-two girls that were at school and a little boy that's 8 months.
As you can see, he is dressing himself these days. We actually went to the grocery store like this today. It's 90 degrees, he has shorts, rubber boots, basketball shorts, a t-shirt, and a
toboggan (spelling)! We got lots of looks and ooohhh's and aaawwww's.

The interview went really well!! I think it's a great school and they have a job opening from January to May only in first grade. I would be full time with teacher pay and benefits until the end of May when the teacher comes back, and it would at least help me get my foot in the door for next year. What was I thinking saying that I was not going to work??? Maybe it will work out for us. Keep your fingers crossed!

Olive Street Gang!!

At any point in the afternoon, this is what our street looks like!! The bikes are lined up at some driveway! We counted and there are 23 kids in 9 houses on just our street! Most everyone has 3 to 4 kids-we have the least amount!
Speaking of all of the kids, we took most of them to the last Captains game this past week. They had a blast, and Captain Jack was a busy mascot trying to satisfy them! It was a nice game.
Tyson and his friend Brook enjoying seats all to themselves!! He calls her Brookie. They are sweet friends.
The ice cream truck came yesterday, and the kids took a little break in the shade to enjoy!! I think we were outside from about 2:00 to 7:00 yesterday. They do get their exercise here!

Avery Update

Well, in true Avery fashion, we are hearing alot of stories from school!! She is still loving it, but already wondering why she has to get up SO early!! She still has her alarm clock right beside her head, and has not heard it even once! :) We have to make sure that it's set every night just incase. She is so funny. She is NOT loving homework. She usually has about 3 pages per night, so it takes us a little while because she hasn't figured out that the faster she works, the faster she gets done and goes outside. She'll get it one day!
