What the $%#@ were we thinking?

Last Wednesday DJ and I made a pros & cons list.

We tried hard to talk ourselves out of it.

We talked about it for two hours.

We didn't tell the kids, we wanted to make an informed decision on our own.

We went in fully prepared to say no.

We didn't.

Meet Scrappy. (Yes Scrappy is Scooby-Doo's nephew, and you KNOW we're a Scooby-Doo lovin' family!)

DJ put him in a bag and surprised the girls when we got home from church Wednesday night.

Is that kid happy, or what? (She actually cried a little ,which was her first happy tears and she was kind of confused by it all! She said, " I'm happy but there are tears in my eyes!")

We're all pretty in love with him.

School Daze

I remember second grade vividly. A boy named Russel gave me a necklace for Valentine's Day. Also a boy named Michael pooped his pants. Maybe that's all the "vivid" memories I have, which might be a good thing.

I hope your 2nd grade year is filled with wonderful memories, minus the poop. And, I would also prefer you not talk to any boys, at all. Let's just skip Valentine's for the next 15 years or so. If a boy gives you anything, hide it from your dad.
Love, Mom

I don't remember Pre-K. Not even sure we had Pre-K when I was a kid, and i terneed owt juzt fyne!
I hope your Pre-K year is filled with fun and excitement, and if you learn something along the way that's cool too. Just don't point and stare when the kid next to you starts eating the glue. With 240 glue sticks floating around your class, it's bound to happen.
Love, Mom

I love you my sweet girls! No sad tears here, you're right where GOD wants you to be and I am blessed and thankful that you're healthy and wonderfully made.
