Funt times!

OK, I give up on the whole webspace thing and pictures. I will e-mail all family members the pictures so if you read my blog and have not received any pics that I talk about then e-mail me and I will send them to you. :)

I just discovered a fun and educational website that has some great lesson plans for those homeschooling. I am not homeschooling my son but I thought I would get a head start with my daughter. the site is in my links and is called My kids are working on the alphabet plane and the numbers book now. They love it!

My son is doing well in school and had the Teddy Bear Picnic yesturday. I sent pictures of that along the other day in emails. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed helping the teacher out a lot. My daughter also had fun being a part of the group yesturday and I even had a parent, also helping out, comment on how my daughter just jumped right in to all the activities and seems to fit in well with the kindergartners. :):)
Next week if the class field trip to the apple orchard and I am going on that and of course my daughter is coming too. I will take pictures and send those along too.

Woohoo! I think I got it!

By George, I think I got it!! I may have a way of displaing the pictures on a webspace! yay! My stupid metrocast account is dumb and even my friend who is really good with computer stuff could not get our metrocast webspace to work for me. so click HERE to see the pics of my sister's visit! I have to enlarge some of them but some are a good visible size. This is just a smaple to see if I could get this to work. I will update things in this blog soon so you can see the York Wild Kingdom pics I promised not long ago.

Ya know! We went through a trauma a few months ago when sr. monkey sliced his head open at work. He lost about 3+ pints of blood and now has a couple nice big scars on his head. Well, today I get a call from sr. monkey stating that he was creamed in an auto accident in Meredith today on the way home from work! His trucks front end is totaled and he was not able to drive it at all. The truck was towed and he has a rental van for work right now. Poor guy! The woman who hit him was a 73 yr old woman who decided at a red light to turn left in front of sr. monkey. grrrr! sr. monkey's employee was driving behind him and saw the whole thing and he said it reminded him of when sr. monkey cut his head open. sr. monkey's employee, Matt, was there for that too.

Anyway, If sr. monkey's truck can not be fixed then he will have to get a new truck. We will hopefully find out what is going on today.

I remember praying for sr. monkey safety yesterday morning while I was bringing son to school. I am so thankful for prayer and how it works!! God is good!

son is doing well in school. His teacher told me that he was excellent in class Tuesday. Caleb is excited about Friday as it is his 6th birthday and I will be baking cupcakes and bringing them into class for him and his classmates to share on Friday. son is also a member of the Toys-R-Us birthday club and he got a card with a coupon to Toys-R-Us in it. It says to bring it in for a fun surprise! We will all go as a family on Friday afternoon to see what is in store for son.

daughter is starting to get used to being without her brother for a couple hours a day. Today she cleaned her room and then cleaned son's room! She was not told to do these things. She just did them on her own and came out to tell me about it after. She even made son's bed for him. How cute! All the while I thought she was playing quietly in her room. hehe. :)

It is late and I need to get to bed as I have to be up at 6am to get the kids up. I also have a lunch date after I pick up the kids from school at my good friends house. So... busy, busy, busy!

Google earth

Google Earth is so cool! You can type in your own address and see your house from space! I showed the kids our address in Florida and they thought it was so neat. Gee I wish we had this kind of stuff when i was a kid. It is amazing how much things has changed in so little time. My kids think that email has always been around. I was watching an old episode of the Dukes of hazzard on tv the other day and when Daisy and the big lady were being chased by some bad guys, the 2 guys (her brothers, I think) were out looking for her to help her because they knew the bad guys were going to look for her and the big lady. I just thought, "why doesn't she just call them on her cell to let them know where she is and let them know she is in trouble" Then it occured to me that we did not have cells then. Too funny. In fact what happened on the show is she got out her CB radio and called them that way. WOW! Even I have forgotten what things were like.

Kindergarten is going well

son on his first field trip at the end of the month and daughter and I are going with the class. I know it will be a lot of fun. The kids are going to Carter Hill Orchard/Sunnycrest Farm, Inc. .

son's best friend, said the other day " We have to have son over for dinner soon before son moves to Florida." I thought that was so sweet. friend said it to his mum and to me & son as well.

I had a talk with son's teacher today and she said that son is doing well but does have some issues that he has to work on such as blurting out answers without raising his hand among other things. But, she said he is showing progress in just the one week so we will be praying and see how it goes.

daughter is not sure what to do at home without son around. She keeps telling me she is bored and she wants to go pick up son when we still have an hour to go before we head out to Trinity. Poor thing. I do feel for her too as she has made so many good friends here at trinity and she was hoping to start school with them and she will not be able to as we will be in Florida by then. I am not sure of the schools name but the church is Bethal Baptist church so I assume the school will be named Bethel Christian school. This school will have a closed enrollment from ( I think) jr. high on, maybe sooner. I like that. The school son attends has a closed enrollment and that makes me feel better. We just pray that daughter makes some good, new friends really fast so she will not be so sad that she left all her old friends.

Well, I have things to do today so bye.
