This and That

Haven't posted in a while! Been busy!

Mikaela had her awards day at school Wednesday. She recieved 3 awards, which I am so proud of her for. She recieved one for honor roll (she had all A's and 1 B); one for good behavior awarded by the teacher; and one awarded by the principal for being outstanding student! Only 2 in each grade recieved the principals award, so I was very proud. She's doing great in school. She got a B in math, but she's doing so well and I'm so proud of her!

Eli had his first field trip last week. They went to see the Wizard of Oz, the play. He enjoyed it, but he said it was scary! He also didn't like the 1 1/2 hour bus ride each way. He is very smart, and loves doing his flashcards in the evening. He is also very happy he gets to wear his 'short sleeve pants' (which is what he calls shorts! lol) and his summer 'costumes' (which is what he calls outfits lol!) He has funny phrases he says all the time. Last night Rod was tucking him in bed. Rod pulled the covers up, and Eli wanted them pulled up differently than normal. Rod said, "You're changing up the way I tuck you in a night, aren't you?" And Eli said, "Yup! I have a new bed recipe!" LOL. I think my kids are too, too funny.

I didn't feel good last night. I felt sick to my stomach and dizzy, and I woke up this morning (at 5:30 thanks to Silas...) with a KILLER headache and I was very dizzy. I feel better now, but when I get to moving, I get dizzy. I don't know what's wrong? But I know that I hate that feeling! (dizzy feeling). I would like to take a nap but I know as soon as I lay down, Silas will wake up from his nap! It's like he has a radar on him. As soon as Mommy lays down and gets to sleep, ZING he's awake!

Mercie fell out of bed last night! She always gets in bed with us in the middle of the night. And I woke up to a THUD. And her crying. She went back to sleep quickly, though!

Silas said daddy last night! Rod picked him up and he said "Da-de" and laid his head on Rod's shoulder! Of course, he still won't say MaMa!

Mercie loves loves sippy cups! She drinks them like a bottle, and twirls her hair at the same time. Silas loves to play with her sippy cups, but will NOT drink out of one...

I got a GEO-SAFARI out of my neighbor's garages sale yesterday for ONE DOLLAR. Love deals! I got Mercie TONS of clothes, in EXCELLENT SHAPE, for this summer. In fact, she doens't need anything now except shoes and a few play outfits. One down...Three to go. Clothes get expensive! But luckily our neighbors daughter is one size ahead of Mercie, and they buy her NICE clothes, so I can usually snag some good things! I don't mind second hand clothing, but I know some people don't like it! But I say be frugal! Save your money! Make your dollar go as far as it can! (Actually I don't say that...but I should!)

I was so proud of Mikaela too. I could barely keep from standing up and saying "that's my granddaughter!"

I also love that Eli calls his pajamas 'sleeping costumes'... He is a riot!
