The Big Announcement

Sorry to be so slow posting today, but I have been waiting for the big announcement! Beauty and The Beast went in for their 20-week ultrasound this morning and we have been waiting all morning for them to take guesses on Facebook.

I'm just thrilled with another new grandchild. In truth, I did not really care if we were going blue or pink, but I know it is a big deal to the parents.

So are you ready? Drum roll please...

In The Beast's own somewhat inappropriate words:

"Its a grand ol'flag, it's a high flying flag and forever in his pants may it stay!

A Big Step

Remember last summer when Crafty had her very first paid job playing the clarinet in the SLCC Marching Band? At the time she wasn't always so happy about getting up early in the summer and spending her holidays out in the hot sun.

Yesterday all that work paid off when she bought her very own computer with that hard-earned money. She is super excited to no longer have to wait in line for her turn at the family computer to sweat over her homework.

Not only is this a big step for her, it is a huge step for us! We have never allowed any of our children to purchase/have their own computer before they became adults. It has just been a rule. But now that they have phones and tablets, it seems that they have access to everything anyway, so this just makes everyone's life a bit easier.

Crafty is an amazing girl and I trust her completely or I would not have allowed this purchase, but still, I want to be a good parent. What kind of rules do you have for your kids with their devices? Should I set up a lockout time or restrict her hours in some way?

Need some advice here.

Stupor of Thought

I went to bed last night because my brain would not even come up with a decent idea to write about and it was late...

Problem is, here I am, showered and dressed and ready to meet the day and it STILL seems to be pretty blank. Lots of people ask me how I can possibly post every day and where do I find my material. I guess that means my kids have been sort of boring this week. Did you know that most of my very own children don't read my blog?

They have this excuse... "I was there, so I already know what happened."

I personally don't think that holds much water. They should be the first ones online every morning just to check my facts, right?

Enough ranting...

Last night Curly and I went out to the urgent care for one last x-ray of his finger. He has been so diligent to wear the finger brace all the time, even when he sleeps. The break was through a growth plate so they wanted to make sure it healed properly.

He was given a clean bill of health so he only has to wear it for another 4 weeks while he is playing baseball. All other times he can be without it. He was excited to see his finger again.

I was excited to not have to worry about it all the time.

My head is spinning with all the new schedule changes. We actually missed one of Curly's baseball practices because I didn't log onto the Facebook page. You saw that the Dog Walker has begun his field assignment. He is working in a 6th grade classroom and all seems to be going well. We just need to make sure he gets everything done there and then focus on wrapping up the semester.

We got Crafty all registered for a few summer classes. She wants to earn her Associates while she is in high school, so it will mean some extra work. She is a super busy girl lately.

Teach is almost ready to go back to work, so that means I get to watch Twizlet while Twiz is working. Do you know that baby girl is one month old today? Time just flies by...

One last thing, I am really impressed with the Fitbit company! The Dog Walker just started having trouble getting his Charge 2 to work that he received for Christmas. We emailed the company and sent them these two pics and a few diagnostics later and his new Fitbit is on its way. It didn't cost us anything! Not even shipping!
