What a Sleeper

Odd Place to fall asleep! Georgia was beat and we were all talking in the entry way of the house. She laid down while we were talking, and bam! She was out cold in a mintue.

Patrick got "a LIFE"

Happy Birthday Patrick!

Today Patrick is a teenager. YIKES! I am not worried because Patrick is a wonderful son, a great student and a super big brother. He is one of my favorite people on the planet because he makes me laugh and shares the same strange humor that I do. He is one funny individual. So here's to you Puff...I love you and have a fantastic 13th year.

O.K. , two blogs in one day...amazing for me, but, I have to make a comment about American Idol and that David Archuleta actually sang one of Sean's favorite songs of all time, Robbie Williams "Angels". He sings it ALL the time around the house and the kids even know it by heart. Sean has never been a huge fan of the show but it seems that he has found his favorite performer and has even called in a few votes.

April 8th

Today is Tuesday. Everyone just left for school. Life is good.
 Some thoughts about last weekend: Sam is rockin' smart and placed 6th out of 49 teams in the science bowl. There were hard questions about everything from name your scientist to rock formations and ... I AM NOT SMARTER THAN A FIFTH GRADER! I sat and judged that event and got maybe half of the answers right while Sam scored 29 out of 30. He did well and came home happy with his medal wrapped around his neck. We got home at 4:45 and then Patrick and Sean headed out for Conference. Conference was great. Sean has been three for three now with the calls of the new Presidency and Apostles. He thought that Uncle Todd would be called as the new Apostle and he told me this before we went to bed on Friday night. Crazy!!! He was right again and we are all excited for Uncle Todd. Loved watching it together with the kids (for the most part, they were pretty good)
 Didn't get to plant my garden yet...that will be this Saturday when it hits 82 degrees. Can't wait for tomatoes.

Saturday, April 5th

Today is Saturday! FINALLY!
 I woke Sam up at 6:oo a.m. to get ready to head to the Science Olympiad competition and then I cleaned up around the house, read the paper, checked my email, "Tivo-ed" (Is that really a word?) General Conference so that we can watch it later after the Science extravaganza and now it is 7:50a.m.  and I feel like a taking a giant NAP but I am going to head out the door and go running because that would be the best choice.It looks like a beautiful day. 
Sean always wakes up and says," Carpe Diem", which in Latin means seize the day. I hear him snoring upstairs, I definitely" seized" the day. Happy Saturday.
