First of all I want to say I did not come up with this idea but saw in on another ladies blog and LOVED it. I am turning 26 in December and to celebrate I am going to go one random act of kindness a day until my birthday. I have to start in two weeks. I know it might sound weird but I think it helps all of us when we look outside ourselves and help others. Sometimes we can be an answer to their prayers and they can answer ours by us serving them and by serving them we are serving our Lord. I know that my birthday lands very close to Christmas and so everyone is a little more in the giving mood this time of season but I encourage all of my friends and family to look a little outside themselves in this busy season and see how a simple, it doesnt have to be grand act of kindness can make someone smile. So here is to 26 days of kindness starting soon. I dont want it to seem like I am telling anyone I am going to so this to toot my own horn as my mom says but rather to encourage and inspire others maybe to do it for their birthdays that may not fall around the holiday season. May we all look out for reasons to serve each other and strangers and in doing that we are being the hands for our God here on Earth.

Reese started PreK today! She was so excited. She didn't even mind getting up at 6:30, which is early for both sleeping beauty and her mother. We had muffins for breakfast, her request, got dressed and out to nanas house to drop off Peanut at doggie daycare. We can't leave Peanut alone in the house or he will poop in the house. NO matter how long he has been outside. Its what we call and F-you poo. Anyways, Jeremy meet us at school so we could say goodbye to out little girl together. She didn't shed a tear, she was ready to go!! The only thing that made me a little sad was as we where leaving Brodie called out through the school fence "Where did she (Reese) go?" Poor boy is all alone with boring ol' mommy. He missed his sissy and was my little twin all day not letting me out of his site. Reese loved her first day of school and is ready to go back tomorrow!

I made some sponge water bombs for the kids today and I have to say it was a "hit". I expect A LOT of use for them this year since it is so HOT! We are also planning on making a kid car wash sometime this week. I got the idea HERE. NOTE: I used dental floss because the fishing line kept slipping in my hands and they actually came apart when we played with them. The dental floss works great and is already handy at the house. To make the smaller ones I cut the sponges "hot dog" instead of "hamburger". You can experiment on our sizes. My mom says the bigger ones are easier to catch but I think the little ones are so cute :)

We are taking a cue from Judy Moody and having a No Bummer Summer. I have made a poster board sized calendar and a page of ideas for things for us to do this summer. Last week we already went to the zoo (for free!! with the libraries zoo pass) and this week has been filled with swim lessons and water balloons. MANY fun ideas and pictures to come!!

Reese had her last soccer practice tonight. Its kinda nice to be able to take a break from activities in the summer. I got to get a summer schedule put together and planned out so it doesnt sneak away on us.

I have been a really sucky blogger. I don't know why I really don't do it anymore. Just never seem to get the energy to sit and write how my thoughts or write down things that have happened. I was justl ooking at my blog from the past year and I love looking back at the pictures and the post as kinda a family journal of sorts. So lets see if I can get back on the blogging train and get it done!
Jeremy's granny and papa and Jeremy and I went to Tuscaloosa Alabama April 16 for the Alabama spring game which is Alabama vs. Alabama, a practice game. Which all Roll Tide fans know is a fun game to go to. Jeremy has wanted to go since we moved here and really wanted to share the experience with his Papa. So we packed up in the mini van and went. We actually got a late start there on Friday ( its 3 and 1/2 hours away) and thankfully we did because Tuscaloosa was hit by a tornado in the area we where staying!!! Thankfully everything was ok and just some small property damage. It was so fun to see Jeremy show all the Bama stuff to his Papa. We had a really good time, there was over 92,000 people at a spring game. Alabama fans are die hard for real!!!! We got to the stadium early and got awesome seats, Jeremy was even iterviewed by some Australian TV crew about a player on the team.

Reese had her first soccer practice last monday. I was having flashbacks driving back to the soccer complex and the smell of the grass at night under the lights. Such fun memories. I am so excited for Reese and ALL day she would ask me when she was going to soccer. I was busy chasing Brodie around the fields with his ball.

I love Valentines day. I think it is just a cute and fun holiday. Its not one of those uber commercialized holidays to me, its just an excuse to use alot of red and pink (my favorite color!) Today we had a heart wreath and also had lunch in cute little heart baking cups. The kids thought this was so much fun! I got them on clearance last Valentines from Joanns. It helps with portions too even though we did have to have a refill on blueberries. I think my kids can eat a whole pint in one day. They love blueberries (and well all fruit)

Where has a whole DECADE gone? Wow. The 90's seem like a vast amount of time to me but 2000-2010 when by in a flash. There is no way that was really 10 years, right? Geez, I guess what they say about you getting older and time going by faster really is true. I am so excited for this new year. I am excited about all the future possibilities for our family! I hope everyone had a fun and safe new year! Here is to a wonderful and blessed new year!!!
