nice to see ya. It's been a long time... Sorry about that. I really have been meaning to post. The free time I was so looking forward to once school got out hasn't arrived yet. I keep waiting for it, but so far, since the last day of school, I have been busy with: the end of year party--which ended up being a surprise baby shower for me and the other pregnant lady (which as wonderful as it was, adds more to the to-do list with all the thank you notes I have to write), New Attitude (plus all the preparation and unpacking that went with it as well as the driving back and forth to take Aubie to Mom and Dad's and to pick her up), dealing with a spoiled rotten child who now wants to stay at Graham and Pop's all the time, a doctor's appointment, pulling my hair out over potty training issues, a church merge, trying to get more involved locally by going to the library story times, Oh yeah! Aubie's birthday party, and this week, helping lead music for the 3 and 4 year olds in VBS. It may not sound like a lot, but for a pregnant lady beginning a long, hot summer, its making me kinda tired.
I did take pictures the other day, though, that I thought you might enjoy. This is Aubie and Hank the Cowdog. I was a bit surprised at her standing there long enough for me to get her picture. The library lady told everyone to get a high five and you could take pictures if you brought your camera. Well, Aubie shook his hand, got her picture, and as we were walking away, she said, "Mommy, I not get a high five." So, we had to get back in line and give this scary dog a high five. I was quite impressed with her bravery. I doubt that I would have done so at her age. I was scared to death of Santa Claus.
And here is a picture of "The Flour Girl Returns". Once again, she only floured one piece of meat and then played for the rest of the time. In fact, I was putting supper on the table and she was still playing. I know its a bit early, but to all the aunts and uncles and grandparents of this child, if you want to give her something she will absolutely love for Christmas, a bag of flour will be just the thing!
