Our Week

We didn't go anywhere for spring break, but we had a fun time. A couple of days, we just hung out at home and rode bikes, played jump rope and basketball. Emily was quite impressed that I could beat her at "Around the World" in basketball. She was even more impressed that her old mom remembered some neat jump rope tricks...AND could actually STILL jump rope!! haha
I also finally made the time to scrapbook a little this week! The girls and I spent most of one day during spring break scrapbooking together. I had to stop a lot and help the girls with their pages, so I only got 3 pages completed, but it felt SO good to play with my papers and embellies!! LOL
I have some fun pictures from the week and will post as soon as I get the computer drive repaired/replaced (so frustrating!).

Computer Troubles

I've been hoping to post some recent pics taken during our spring break, but am having computer problems. Apparently, the drive we use to charge our MP3 players and upload photos is broken....argh! That means that I'll have to wait until I take a bunch more photos, then take the memory card to the store and have them put on disc (at least that drive is still working for now!).

Bee Art

The girls brought home more great art today from's subject was a bee. The art teacher told Emily that her drawing inspired lots of other children (her class was first in art that day, so they left their work up as examples). Claire did a good job on her little bee as well...not too bad for a kindergartener. :-)

Spring Break!!

Spring Break officially starts at 2:45 p.m. today when the kids get out of school!! I think I am as excited about having a break as the kids are! We don't have much planned for next week, so hopefully we'll be sleeping in a little. We may even do a little shopping and scrapbooking as well.

Iguana Art

Just wanted to post a pic of one of Emily's recent paintings from school....a really cute iguana. She did a great job!

Blog Format

OK, I admit that I've changed the template on this blog nearly every day. I wish there were more styles to choose from! :-) I just can't seem to find a layout/color that is "me". I've looked at several scrapping blogs that use "Typepad" and I really like the look of those, so may end up changing to that....just need to figure out how to make those cool headers like the other scrappers have.

Happy Anniversary

Today is our one year year that our dossier has been logged in and waiting in China. Not that we're particularly happy to celebrate "waiting" for so long, but we have faith that things will work out and we will be referred the child meant for us. It's looking more and more like a late 2007 or early 2008 referral now.

The Man Has Traveled!

Just as I suspected, Randy has been to almost every state in the union. My travels look pretty sad compared to his. He still needs to visit South Dakota, Alaska and Hawaii....I'm up for that trip!

Found a cool map site on the net where you can check off the states and countries you've visited. Here's where I've been in the states. I'll have Randy check his travel later - I'm sure he's been to nearly every state.
