Sprinting Towards The Finish Line

For The Kids
Monday, May 14, 2012
Day 351

Out running a few errands today and Harrison saw these little benches outside one of the stores and begged me to take a picture of them "for the kids." He is always so worried about what his older siblings are missing out on while they are at school.


Of course he insisted I take a picture of his sitting on each bench.


Crazy, sweet, amazing, funny kid!

If it Waddles Like a Penguin

Day 352

Adam made this is school I think before Christmas time! And it keeps kicking around the house. It will disappear to his closet for awhile then reappear, getting in the way. So I told him the next time it was in my way it was going in the recycling can.


Today it got in my way. And now it's gone.

Day 353

This is the plant I got from Zoey for Mother's Day.


Yup, it's dead already. Someday plants will love me as much as I love them. Someday....

Day 354

They are building a home on the lot next door and I can't wait until they are done!!! They arrive to work so early and they are loud!

This morning this pump truck showed up at 4:45 am!!!



Of course the trucks with the cement didn't show up until around 8:00. And the pump truck just sat their idling THE ENTIRE TIME! Do you know how very loud and obnoxious that is at 5:00 in the morning?

Box Tops Drop Out

Day 355

I hate Box Tops. I hate the hassle of cutting them out. I hate trying to find a place to keep them once I cut them out. But I keep collecting them because I feel so guilty when I don't.

So I have been dutifully (and grudgingly) cutting them out all year. And guess how much money I made for the school.


$2.50. Yup. That's it. 25 stinking box tops. Next year I'm going to just write the school a check and call it good!

Day 356

One of our new favorite things at Costco.


Mix it with some cream cheese and a little onion and garlic powder and it's so very very good!

Day 357

Noticed today that my new dress is a perfect match to my phone case.


Guess I must like that color!

I got to be the Parent Council member to count ALL the Box Tops this year, it's a pain but they do add up. One kid donated over $1,000 (his mom works for Associated Foods and somehow got them), luckily they were already counted. = )

Cute dress!
