1 proud papa, 2 proud mamas, and 2 energetic young boys=priceless entertainment, and proud moments
We went to the Spelling Bee today. Mike, Brandy, Brandon, Danny, and I. It was a moment to see your child up on stage, nervous, (the turning green nervous), and realizing how very proud you are as a parent and aunt, to see, witness, this moment. Brandon won third place, and Danny won an out on his very first word. I am still proud of him. I wish you could have seen him sitting up there, giving me the deer in the headlights look (course this could have been his signal for telling me...PUT THE DARN CAMERA DOWN!, nah..he loves having his picture taken!), and gulping a few times. Brandon sat up there and beamed. He was nervous, but he was smiling sitting up there. What an honor I had today, witnessing the greatness of adolescence. So very happy they could experience it together.

Touching Base
Riles has decided to play tball again this year. She said she DIDN'T want to play soccer (WHAT??). I can't believe I won't find a soccer ball cooling off in my refridgeraor this year, sigh.
I am home from school today, as is Danny. I cancelled due to the windchill, danny had a 2 hour late start, and I am sick. So, he gets to play hookie (i am sure i will go to hell for being a bad mother). Riles on the other hand, went to school :) The bus picked her up, and will drop her off at grandma's so I can get homework done.
We went and saw The Spiderwick Chronicles on monday. We took kenna with us, and we all liked the movie. I thought the books were so much better, but I usually think that. I know they can't fit it all in a movie, but I sure wish they could try.
Danny picked up a new DS game (zelda) with a gift card Grandma Pat gave him for christmas, and riles' picked up a furreal puppy friend. Kenna couldn't find anything to buy, and said she would put her money on her gift card her dad carries for her! Lol..i love it when she says things like that.

Guess what Miss R and Danny are getting for their bdays? BIKES. yep..we found a john deere one for miss riley, and Danny wants a new red one, and hopefully he will attempt to learn to ride it..oh well. He is good at other things, like SPELLING. Yep, he made the spelling bee, and we get to go watch him and Bubba spell next week.
I will include pictures another time. Blogger is being naughty.
Staying home,

Don't ya just love snow days?

What do you think?

Danny doesn't eat well at school. He eats maybe 1-2 things on his lunch tray. So I thought about packing his lunch, but want to do more than the standard sandwich and chip variety. I had heard about this laptop lunch box awhile ago, and thought it was a neat concept. I like the idea I can pack leftovers or different things in it, different than the brown bag concepts. So, what do you think? I hope it will make it easier for me, I can add the main course, fruit, veggies, (and dipping sauce in the little container provided..even caramel dip for an apple!) and silverware. It also comes with a nice bag to carry it in. If he likes it and wants to take some soup or something with him, I can get a thermos for cheap to go with it. Now, if I decide to get it, I hope I can at least get him to bring it HOME.

(want to look up something fun? Go to flickr and search for bento. They are so freaking cool!)
