Tomorrow, son starts school

I am so excited for son! He is also very excited. We have the school shopping done and the school clothes set out to wear tomorrow. We all have to be out the door by 7am but I think it will be a whole lot of fun!

son had his first homework assignment due tomorrow. son had to use a piece of cardstock and fill up both sides with things about himself. He could color, cut out pictures and paste them onto the paper or rubber stamp images and write some words to describe himself. He did all of the above. He was so thrilled to have a homework assignment before school even started.

son is also excited because his best friend, will be in his class. Since friend lives down the road from us we will be bringing friend home from school at 11am. son thinks that is neat!

I will be taking pictures, of course so watch for them!

Oh and about that, pictures i mean. I have a good friend coming to my house on thursday and not only will we have fun and catch up on things, she will show me how to get my pictures to show up the way I want them to here. Yay!

One more thing. Let's all be thinking of and praying for those in LA, Al and MS. A lot of devistation occured with Hurricane Katrina and a lot of families have no home. These people need comfort and peace to pass over them so let us pray for God's peace that passes all understaning for them.

Preschool time dot com

I found a great thing that Kelly and I can do while son is in school this fall. ( 2.5 more weeks!) Disney has a new website for preschoolers that is coming out this fall. it is www.preschooltime.com I will add a link to it soon. It is for parents and kids to use together on the computer to help teach the preschooler some new educational things! Sounds cool! You can go to this site to see a sample video clip of this new site.

Got a job!

Yes, I am a working girl again, but, only temporarily. I will work for 3 weeks at J.Jill Group . I used to work there before the kids were born. It is a great place to work and they treat their employees like gold. I want to earn a few bucks and this is perfect for me because it is only 3 weeks long. I will do it again for 3 weeks in October and then around Christmas time. I am looking forward to this.

son starts school in less than 4 weeks and I can't wait to take first-day-of-school pics of him to put into a scrapbook. We got all of his school supplies and clothes and he is ready to go! He is very excited about this as are we. This is a big milestone for him and for us as parents. daughter will stay home with me and do some homeschooling to prepare her for next school year. She wants to go to school now but she is only 4 and still too young to start kindergarten.

It is a beautiful day today and I may take the kids out to a park. I think I may take them to one in Concord as I have a tee shirt to pick up from last years Run For Justice 5K at franklin Pierce Law center.

I have my first physical therapy appointment tonight. I am hoping it goes really well. I am praying that the physical therapy works for me so I do not have to have the needles in my spine or even worse, surgery.

I have decided to start "flying" again! If anyone has read Karolyn's blog you will have heard of the Flylady. I did this a lot before my classes got so time consuming but now I have more time to devote to home. She is so wonderful at getting people like me organized and neat. She uses baby steps and she says you should never try to catch up if you are behind, just focus on what your task is now and do everything in baby steps. I need the baby steps. Everything is broken down in simple form and the one thing she suggests is that you never go to bed before your kitcen sink is shiny. You have to visit the site to see what I am talking about! Also, if you wnat her e-mail reminders, you can sign up for them on her sight.

Off to do some stamping before my errands!

Stopping By The Woods On A Snowy Evening

I have always loved the poems of Robert frost and have tried to mimick his style when I write. He is from NH and one of my favorite poems is one I had to memorize as a child in elementery school in NH. The poem is Stopping by The Woods On A Snowy Evening.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know,
His house is in the village though.
He will not see me stopping here,
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer,
To stop without a farmhouse near,
Between the woods and frozen lake,
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake,
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep,
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

-- Robert Frost
