allie vs. jillian

allie comes downstairs with a washcloth vigorously scrubbing her legs. "what happened?" i ask, knowing full well what happened. "jillie attacked me with a marker." really? i didn't know that jills was so proficient at making r's, and a's, and i's.

monday, monday or tough love

meet thomas.

likes: legos, video games, baseball, skateboarding, ice cream, cooking, the beach, wyoming. dislikes: MONDAYS.

poor thomas, just can't get going on mondays. he has always been an early riser, but not on mondays. every excuse possible for why he can't go to school. today was tough on me. he said that he couldn't go to school because he sees the other moms there and it makes him think of me and then he cries. nice try thomas, go brush your teeth and put your shoes on.

usually i'm okay with living with three seasons ( summer, more summer and even more summer) but for some reason, could be the super warm weather we have been having, i am really missing this

monday we made caramel apples for family night. the kids love unwrapping the caramels. i love for them to help because it is my least favorite job. i think that only like because they eat every other caramel they unwrap. what does jillo do while we make caramel apples? internets of course. she is obsessed with the computer. climbs up on the desk whenever you turn your back.

thomas was awarded the principal's award last week. pretty awesome. he also has been a scoring machine in soccer. scoring the only goals his team has. emily had about 20 shots but never got one in. so close. allie has been loving/hating school. loves it when she is there, hates getting there. jills had to have 4 shots yesterday. today is a fun day. so whiny.
