Christopher Columbus

Xander had to do a book report on Christopher Columbus at school. He rehearsed a few times and decided he had it all memorized, he didn't need any notecards. I wish I could have been at school b/c I think up in front of the class he would have froze and forgot half. Maybe he will rethink the notecards next time, or maybe he winged it, guess time will tell when he gets his grade back.

School Fitness Challenge 2012

Jude made it a half mile, he is so funny.
I think he could have cut at least a minute off of his time if he was looking forward, he was definitely more interested in who was running behind him than in front of him. I think he has got some potential, after he finished the half mile, he wanted to run it again, good job Jude! He was so proud and hasn't taken his medal off since he finished the race.
lining up before the race.
Monroe was bumped up to the 3rd through 5th age group this year, where all milers boys and girls ran together. She finished well 7:40's, 2nd girl overall out of 155 total finishers.
Xander and Brady did well also, Brady 8:25 and Xander 8:40, cutting off 5 seconds from last year, good thing we were trained up:)
representing Marlatt! My kids are hoping they raised enough money to buy new ropes for the gym, supposedly theirs were thrown away.
I love looking at old blogposts, race from 4 years ago and 5, wow how they have grown!

Cheap Seats

You get what you pay for, you see how high we were?! The kids didn't seem to mind, especially when cotton candy is involved.
We took the big 3 to watch a Royals game Friday night, don't think we have seen a game since 3 kids ago maybe? It has changed so much, the outfield experience was so fun for the kids and it was a beautiful night for the Royals win.

Crazy Hair Day

feeling blue? heading out early to go to the Royals game, hope the blue will help get them a win!
this was my favorite, Mrs.Sandmann's white board, It is not crazy kid day, think it may be too late for that.
photo ops with Miss Francis and Mr.Haney, who always have crazy hair:)

Soccer Studs

Jude started off his soccer season playing against Mr.Jack, whose team was VERY good, and Im pretty sure will go undefeated this fall.
Jude doesn't mind being on the same team with girls, Miss Claire, our neighbor, classmate who also celebrated a birthday tonight. There team (Arsenal, I think?) scored a whole 2 goals by none other than Claire and Jude, who were more than ecstatic.

Land of Nod

this is how my babe finally gets to sleep after I lay with him in a crib for 15 minutes (would also be a comical picture) reading books, tickling back and prayer for nap time, I close him in his room and he has fallen asleep but not in his bed the last 2 days, Ill take it!!

So you think you can dance?

Good thing these girls are starting dance back up this week, because think they are a little rusty:)

These 3 had a sleepover Friday night and while I went to dinner with a couple friends they had Trav help them make a dance/gymnastics video. After some boys from there class made an awesome video last year, they have been inspired to make their own, not quite the same caliber:) Enoy, and even if you don't watch check like, because they are counting them!

Summer favorites Wrap Up

Avocado Salsa
Am I the only one that has never tried this??? Thank you Crystal, I am such a dipper, this is amazing and can be consumed in large quantities without the heartburn like your typical salsa after.
Summer shandies have taken over my number 1 budlight lime spot, i hope there are fall shandy's???
My sisters of course belong in my favorites section as well. They came for dinner Sunday night and while I enjoyed the top 2, they couldn't enjoy either b/c they are 20 days in of the Whole 30. They can have no pop, carbs or dairy,  as well as several other things. They have lost over 10 pounds each and I think are still waiting for the energy boost that is supposed to be kicking in.

Pinspiring Crayon Art

Jude's kindergarten teacher celebrated her birthday the first day of school, so we made a belated little pinterest inspired shadowbox gift, turned out pretty cute for $12.00 total, (not too sure how long the crayons will stay hot glued in place) I heart the big smile more than the gift actually…

 I didn't let him do a whole lot of hot gluing although his fine motor skills are pretty good. He is great with scissors and did well with the gun of course, maybe thats compliments of being a thumbsucker?

Labor of love

funny how my belly never seemed that big, but wow what a profile, how was he not 10 pounds?
Best job is being a mama, but feeling blessed on Labor day that I get to take care of laboring mamas for my 2nd job when Im away from my babes, one of which seems to be stuck like glue lately...
