bad blogger

What can I say? Life has been busy. I know, I know, I ALWAYS say that. And it's always true. But never more so than this past month. The fact that we can't get internet at our house because we're set too far back in the woods (yes, I know, don't even get me started) doesn't help either. So, enough of the excuses, I'll give you the lowdown.

Kelly is loving his high school gig. He's doing a great job at keeping a positive attitude with his students and players. They suffered a heartbreaking loss this past Friday night 21-20, but experienced a great win just last night at a JV game. This week's game is on Thursday night and we're hoping for a BIG WIN.

Claire is student extraordinaire, as always. She's enjoying school and was "Wrangler of the Week" recently. (The school has a western theme this year). She's been attending a softball clinic at the high school, going to travel ball practice and all the hard work is paying off. She gets a hearty workout at first base and is hitting the ball harder than we've ever seen before. She gets to sneak in fun stuff too, sleepovers, birthday parties and time with friends. She loves going to Chief football games and cheers her heart out.

Nolan can now be seen perfecting his karate moves. He attends classes twice a week and loves it. For the first time, he looks forward to an activity. I'm convinced that the fact that karate is done inside an air-conditioned building has something to do with it. He's also doing great in school. First grade has proven to be a challenge, but he's stepped up. He's adjusting to the large amount of homework and is reading like a champ.

I'm just, well, trying to keep it all going. Our activities take us all over town, but we've got a system down. Work is finally starting to let up a bit, thanks to my wonderful director who has rerouted some of my duties to lighten my load. I love picking the kids up everyday and can't imagine doing it any other way. I'm keeping busy with activities of my own. I recently joined Les Amies, a women's service organization and we have a great event this weekend. Claire and I will attend while the boys take off on a camping trip. I was down with some kind of sickness last week. No, not H1N1, but an achy, head, stuffy thing that I'm still trying to totally shake. We're all fighting colds and hope to be breathing clearly soon.

The kids and I are also enjoying a new Wednesday night program at church called S.L.A.M. I'm teaching a small portion of a really cool line-up of activities that we all enjoy.

We have the delight of seeing Kelly so much more often these days. He's home every Saturday. Every single Saturday. This hasn't happened in... well, since my kids have been born! We're visiting the dentist quite regularly these days, as Claire had an abscessed tooth that needed to be pulled and the kids have four cavities between them. Yikes.

It's fall in Louisiana which means we've had a TON of rain, it's super humid and 90 degrees. I'm ready for winter.

Life is good. The details aren't thrilling, but it's what we do. More to come, I promise.
