Let the games begin.....


We went to Lake LBJ with my husband's family for the weekend. When we got there, Nana announced that we were starting a new tradition: Memorial Games. The games consisted of hula hoop, egg walk/race, and washer pitchin'. Washers was a team event that Malc and I placed 2nd (yes, I had to carry the team a few times, not good!). I made 3rd in hula hoop and 3rd in the egg race.....so, when the points were tallied: I WON!!!! YIPEE. We even have a plaque and MY NAME will be the FIRST name on it. Little got in on the action with the egg walk. There are videos of the hula hoop that I'll post when I get them! FUNNY!!!

Babylympics





A few weeks ago (yes, weeks) we had the honor of going to Little's big "show off" of her gymnastics skills. I'd like to say that things went well, but she is two and grandparents were there, along with tons of other people and she acted her age for a large portion of the time! But, here are some photos anyway.

Banking

Money, money, money.....never have enough, someone always wants some from you, right? Well, I opened up a Chase account b/c I got this nifty coupon for a FREE $150 if I opened an account. I'm game, who doesn't want a FREE $150. Also, there is a branch that is MUCH closer than my current bank and it makes my life easier when I have to make my swim deposits. There is this COOOOOL feature: you can deposit checks via the ATM (not in an envelope, but just the checks straight into the machine) and it shows you the checks and you can even print out a receipt with the checks on it! Ok, so maybe your bank does this already, but mine doesn't and I think this ROCKS. It can take up to 30 checks at a time! I love technology!

Target Deals

Ok, not sure if you've ever checked out Little People Wealth, but if you haven't you MUST. I'm on her email list and I was scrolling through today's news and she has these GREAT Target deals. I don't go to Target much b/c they built a new one and it isn't around the corner from me anymore.....not a bad deal b/c when I go to Target I always seem to find a ton of things me and Little just MUST have.

Anyway, if you want to get some GREAT Target deals, go to Little People Wealth Target Coupon Match-up.

Scary observation

I had parent pick-up duty this past week. For those of you who don't know what that is, that's the HUGE line of cars that would rather pick up their children than let them ride a bus or walk home. Teachers are on duty to help the kids get to the right car and inside the car.

Here are some scary observations:
*some of these parents don't look old enough to drive
*lots of kids not buckled up nor in child booster seats...some young enough that aren't even in car seats! (I'm referring to the kids that I'm helping get in and the younger siblings that are already in the car)
*wow, the majority of folks have MESSY/FILTHY cars (not talking about the outside, the inside)
*some of the electronics are worth more than the car
*isn't limo tint illegal?

Just some casual observations as I helped the kiddos into their cars!

Have a good weekend! :-)

Held Captive

.....have you seen the commercial where the people in the photos are talking about how long they've been on the digital camera? I'm usually not one of those types of owners! But alas, I am right now. I usually diligently download, save to an organized folder and then blog.....but I haven't done step one, so the rest hasn't been following....oh, I do have a lot to show you!!! Hey, at least I'm starting to THINK about the fact that I need to download photos! That's step one in a multi-step process, right? Small, baby steps!!! :-)

Almost famous.....

.....so the NB Herald came out to my house yesterday to do a story.....it is in the paper today, on the FRONT PAGE of the paper. The girl at HEB made sure that I wanted to purchase all FIVE copies that I bought!!!! ummmm, yes, that's me on the front!! It isn't a great picture of me, but, then again, it isn't about me, it is about promoting ISR!!! Let me know if you want an autograph! :-)

Kudos

I just want to give a HUGE thanks to my swim moms that continue to blog, FaceBook, email and talk about me and ISR. They are such an enormous asset to my business and spreading the word about this fantastic program.

I have one mom that emails all of her MOPS moms and posts tons of photos on FaceBook. I have another mom that passes out fliers at her Mother's Day out and at her Kindermusic classes. And I have another mom that was very instrumental in contacting our local paper about ISR and getting me an interview today (will post link tomorrow!). She also has contacted one of the local news stations about me, too. And then there are ALL the other moms that just talk about me to their friends, their families and anyone they see, about the program. I have fliers in doctors' offices and in salons. I have families discussing our program over barbeques.....it is just getting out there and I love all of them for talking about it and showing off the swimming and floating abilities of their children!

I just want all of them to know how thankful I am.

Vacation is over.....

We've been out of school for over a week. You know what that means? A "to-do" list pages and pages long.....and along comes a stomach bug that knocks me on my seat....I was out with this yuck for almost a week. I'm still not 100%, but I don't spend my days curled on the couch and/or in the bathroom, so I'm not complaining!!!!

We got "the call" last night and we have to report back to school on Thursday!!! YIKES!!!!!!! That's tomorrow!!! What am I going to do? I could SOOOO get used to this staying home gig; if only they'd pay me for it too!

Seriously though, I'm glad they were precautious and canceled school and not take the chance of spreading this yucky flu.

I did get a ton of stuff done and there is still today and the list isn't complete (is it ever?) You'd think with all of this time on my hands I'd have blogs out the whazoo for you...but alas, this is the first time in over a week that I've even read my blogs! Sorry folks, I thought of you but didn't get around to you. I'm telling you, I was SICK!!!!

I only go back for one day b/c on Friday my dear hubby has his wisdom teeth pulled (ALL FOUR!). Yeah for me, huh? I threatened to ship him back to his mom's and let her deal with his baby-ness! Pray for us; him for the surgery and me for my sanity!

Gotta run. Hugs to all and I'll be posting more soon!
