Our days and the DJ

Wowzers!! I was informed yesterday by some friends that it had been too many days since my last blog post. And when I thought about it, they were right. ha. Life has just been creeping up and slipping by too fast.  I've worked a little; eighth graders are so different than 7th graders. It's always neat to see some of my students that I had in the 2nd grade now in the junior high. I've pretty much been right on - on how I thought they would turn out. I wonder if I'll be able to do the same with my own boys??
We puddled around the house on Saturday and on Sunday we went to a birthday party where everyone wore pajamas and then all of the kids had a pillow fight at the request of the birthday girl. During the party all of the Dads left to help one dad finish up a home project he was surprising his wife with.  They were able to complete it and come back in less than 2 hours and the wife was so surprised when they she got home, she was away all weekend for work/school stuff, and coming home to framed in windows was a pretty big surprise.  For me, it was really nice to see all of these guys, who are dads and husbands, who work all week long, would take a few hours out of their Sunday to help one of our friends.  They are just cool guys like that, and in general, I think it showed a lot about their character.

Anyhow, here are a few pics of my hooligans playing on the DJ. By far one of the best gifts they've ever gotten. Everyone who comes to our house loves this thing.




Pop on over to my friend Cathy's blog, she has a beautiful post on love and motherhood.

Oh WOW! I just wrote a comment and bumped myself out...when the screen came back up I saw your sweet note about my post which I didn't see before. You sure know how to make a girl's day.

Anyhoo...the DJ looks awesome. Your photos are incredible per usual. 7th and 8th graders? You are my new hero :) And those men? Priceless -- lending a helping hand and modeling "man-love" for boys! (Don't tell Mr. D I called it "man-love")

That DJ toy looks pretty cool.

I hope you don't think I'm crazy after I tell you this...

I was sick all weekend, and took NyQuil a couple nights. One of those nights I had crazy NyQuil dreams, and you were in one of them. DOn't know why...maybe I was thinking about blogs as I drifted off to sleep. But we were visiting family in Idaho and I bumped into you and immediately recognized you from blogland. We started chatting it up, and you told me you and your family were moving to Idaho and it was just so weird. But when I woke up I felt like our conversation was so real, and that I've known you forever.

Weird I KNOW! Now you can think I'm crazy if you want to. :)
