Good News, Bad News

The good news is I found time this week to color my hair.  The bad news is it’s kinda a reddish orange color that I associate with troubled teens.  Oh well, I’d rather be a troubled teen than a grey haired granny.

The good news is we got some VERY promising news about our share time position for next year.  The bad news is it’s not a done deal until the personnel lady sings.      

The good news is it was viewing and competition week at dance.  That meant I got lots of opportunities to witness and document the girls I love in the sport I love.  Sof lined up without crying for the second week in a row.  So proud of her.    



If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.  I was happy and clapping too!

One of Sof’s favorite things about dance is the sticker at the end.  She immediately puts it on her leotard or on my shirt, and it usually ends up in the garbage before we get to parking lot.  For that 5 minutes in between though, it’s a highlight.

Livy and Adrienne have competition this weekend, so they had a dress rehearsal this week.  It’s the only rehearsal/show all year that parents are allowed to watch and video or take pics.  It’s always a struggle for me because I just want to watch and enjoy, but I have to man the video and camera!  It’s worth it though to have a few pics of the girls actually on stage!






The bad news is my camera doesn’t do motion well:)

The good news is yesterday was Friday and I made it through another week working full time.  We were all ready for some chillaxin’ last night with cousins and friends.  Before everyone arrived we had some chores to take care of.  I love seeing my kids display the kind of character traits I hope will make them into kind, caring, productive adults.  Lexi had a birthday party she was going to today, so I mentioned she should get her gift ready.  She spent a fair amount of time wrapping and coloring a card.  She cares about her friends and wants them to feel special.



All my girls enjoy the process of getting ready for company.  We’re pretty relaxed at our house, but we still like to clean up a little and have some munchies.  The girls like to be a part of that and I like that I can see them someday doing that in their own home.

There is evidence of love and nurturing between sisters and cousins everywhere.  They know how to rally around little ones and be good role models.  Sof and Natty Bug are even forging a tentative relationship.

It was a still night and we decided to try another Chinese Lantern.  It went a lot better this time(better being defined as nothing was on fire at the end of it). 


Funny thing was the kids all started yelling “Good Luck Ty”!  Little late for that.  Besides, he isn’t the one that needs luck, it’s his parents that do.  He’s a very happy busy boy.  It’s his mommy that’s being worn down to a nub! 


Friday was all good.  The bad news?  Monday is a boomerang.  No matter how far you try to throw it, it always comes back around!
