my news

Jeff and I have decided to get baptized. I'm sitting here thinking that I should write something more, something inspiring, but I don't have words, at least not this early in the morning. :) We're getting baptized, it's what God wants us to do and so we will.

So yesterday some friends of mine warned me that if I didn't post something by the end of today they were all going to write bad stuff about me on their blogs. And part of me really wanted to not blog today just so I could see what they would write about me. Honestly, I don't think they would have done it. I think they would have forgot that they even said that and I would have been off the hook. But here I am anyway, just in case.

So life has been pretty crazy around here these days. My house is a total mess, except for the bathroom I just finished cleaning, but here I am sitting at the computer instead. What's new you may wonder? Well, I'll tell you. I've started babysitting so I've gone from 3 kids to 4 kids Monday to Thursday. Jamin is in grade 1 and Aaron has started Nursery School. We go to diaper gym Monday and Friday morning (in about 5 weeks it will be Wednesday for us too) and on Wednesday morning we go to the library for a literacy program. I take Jamin to school every morning and pick him up every afternoon. Two mornings a week I take Aaron to Nursery School and of course pick him up. It feels like a lot of running around but I tell you the days fly by so fast! We are already nearing the end of September and I haven't even posted the pictures of my kids first days of school.

Tonight is the first night of our AWANA program at our church. I am in charge of our Sparks class which is kids in Kindergarten to Grade 2. Should be a busy night, I'm not sure of the number of kids I will have in my class but I know it's usually the biggest class in the club. And we do a lot of memorizing bible verses and most of the kids don't read very well, if at all, so they require a lot of help. But it's such a great program that I'm excited to be a part of. Teaching kids about Jesus, what's more exciting than that? And my son Jamin is in my class too so it's something we get to do together, makes it a little extra special for me.

Now that Jamin goes to school all day, I think Aaron finds it a little lonely in the afternoons when the boys have their nap. He's always ready to play when "his baby" wakes up. He's in the crib with him right now playing and making a mess. They're having fun so I'll leave them for a while.

I wasn't ready to say good-bye to summer. We had a great summer, managed to do a few things with the kids and didn't have any major house renovations this year. Kinda nice for a change. As excited I get when we renovate something, it's such a pain to actually do it. And Jeff usually uses his holidays to do the renos. This year he actually took some time off and we went to the States for a couple of days and we took our kids camping for another couple of days. It was great! I meant to blog during the summer but do you know how distracting it is to blog while the kids are running around and getting into things?

Anyway, that's about all I got for now. Hope that was enough to not have bad things said about me. :) (even though I am curious about what they would say)

Back to School

Where on earth did this summer go? It seems like it was just yesterday that I picked Jamin up from his last day of Kindergarten, at least that's how it felt on Thursday morning when I brought him to his first day of grade 1. Grade 1? Am I really old enough to have a child in grade 1? And another boy that started his very first day of Nursery School. Aaron loved nursery school, just as I new he would. They are so good there, the kids just love it. But I'm a little sad to see them go back to school, although getting back into a routine is always nice too. It's mixed feelings really. Sad to see them grow up so fast, but loving watching them learn new things and make new friends and have fun in the process. So the first day of grade one there were a few tears from my little boy and I had a hard time getting him out of the van, but when I went to pick him up he said it was a good day, just long and that he missed me. I missed him too. And Aaron had no problem at all with me leaving him at Nursery school. He's growing up so fast. I just know they'll both do so well, I've got smart kids you know! :) And I did take some pictures but as usual they are not yet on my computer, so when they get there I'll make sure you see them.
