Funny Face

Tonight the girls and I had a little too much fun with the camera. Tom was gone for Coach training (soccer). We had so much fun and laughed so hard. I think I might frame them in those multi picture frames for them.

A few posts ago I gave you information on a Mother with CF and her tiny new baby girl. Another blogger listed many special first that you take for granted that Tricia the mom hasn't experienced yet. She gave us a challenge:

I can't wait for you to experience every one of these moments and so many more because this is what it means to be a mommy...and every moment is glorious in its own special way.

My Challenge to all your blogging mommies...

If you are reading this and you are a mommy, I encourage you (for fun) to do something like this for Tricia on your blog. Tell her all the special, frustrating, wonderful moments that you hope she gets to experience just because she's a mommy now too.

Here I go with just a few. There are so many first I could mention they go on for years (hug, booboo, I love you, touch, food spit out on you, temper tantrum, dress being pulled up over the head when up on stage, no more training wheels,ect.). I get to spend many days with my girls but there is something about night time that brings out the sillies and cuddles. I hope for you a night of sillies and cuddles with funny pics.

Grandma Strunk Has Been Busy

My Mom sent the girls some clothes for the American Girl Dolls. They just came today and they have been VERY busy. My mom sent doubles of each outfit. Yeah no need to share. Sydney: "Grandma Strunk is a famous sewer person isn't she?"

Cha Cha Cha Chia

Tom took some pics of Sydney while I was at work the other day. On Groundhog Day the girls went to a museum in Raleigh. Syd made a Chia Pet type Groundhog. It was made with a sock. You just put dirt and seeds in the sock and put it in a plastic bag. Add a little water and sun and watch it grow. It already needs another grass trim.

Arrrrrr Matey

Today was Pirate Day for the 2nd Grade. I got to spend the morning with half of Madison's class. It was a fun morning with lots of games. Second grade boys are a lot of work. I was even in a 3 legged race with one of the boys and hurt my back. I had to go see the nurse and get some motrin. The girls are now going to be off for Spring Break (2 wks.) I think we'll be doing lots of crafts, reading and playing at the park. We went to the library and got some books. I'm also working at the preschool and the girls are going to come and help. I just couldn't pick one picture so there are many.

I thought I'd share a picture from our drought here in North Carolina. The picture is of our dryed up lake. I guess I won't be abe to share any boating pictures this summer. Our town started buying our water from another county a few weeks ago. We got some storms yesterday and they said it gave up about a foot of rain.

Soccer Time Again!!!!

Here are a couple pictures from last season. The biggest change this year is that Tom will be the coach of NINE 1st and 2nd grade GIRLS.
