here's to not getting crushed!!!

Alex started Sophomore football yesterday at Copper Hills. They had their first Spring training session and those guys are BIG BOYS (and very hairy!!!) I was going to just drop him off and go back home, but decided to stay a minute and watch the drills. Well, that "minute" turned into the whole 2 hours! I sat WAAAAAAAAY off in the distance with a few more Sophomore moms (hidden so the boys wouldn't be embarrassed that their mommies were watching them...). Alex did just great--I was proud. Hopefully, there won't be too many cuts--they have enough uniforms for about 60 players per grade. I'll keep you up to date. So, raise your glass of Diet Coke with me and toast to Alex not getting killed while playing football.....

sunday night on the deck

well, it's that time of year again where it's finally warm enough to do haircuts (i use that term loosly....mostly just a simple BUZZ...) out on the deck. i hate buzzing my boys' hair in the house--it's so short and it goes EVERYWHERE! but outside, we just let the wind take the shaved off hair and deposit it to all of our neighbors. pretty gross, huh? zach likes to think that his hair is helping the birds build some nice strong nests. whatev!!!

Happy Mothers Day

(my mom and cute sister Lindsey)

So, basically, I love my mom. She's my friend, teacher, confidante and so many other things. There is no way in the world I would be the person I am today without her guidance for the past 35 years. I still ask her opinion about many things, still complain to her about many MANY things and love her with all of my heart. HAVE A GREAT DAY MOM!!!

...and the winner was...

...NOT Megan, darnit! She was beat out by 2 boys for 8th grade representative. I am surprised at how well she took the news. I thought that if she lost, the drama would be more than we BOTH could handle, but she's okay. Megan had a super sweet friend come over tonight with a Skor candy bar that she had written, "You Skord with me" on it which made Megs happy. She said she'll try again next year (luckily that's like 365 days away...) I honestly can't believe she is willing and wanting to put herself out there like that--who's daughter is she??? As we all learn in kindergarten, "Oh well....maybe next time!"
