5 Thoughts

1. I love being able to help out in my kid's class.  It is always so fascinating to see how they interact and act at school.  Plus it's a nice benefit getting in good with the teachers.

2. This week at Scouts the boy were working on physical fitness.  Lucas put a big stink about going, but then came home saying he had a great time.  He told me they were doing sit ups and push-ups.  He said, some people claim that sit-ups are harder than push-ups. He has no idea how anyone can think that though as sit ups are so much easier.  He then told me that he had a New Year's resolution to work out everyday, but had already missed some days.  He wanted to start again as 'how cool would it be to have a six-pack'.

I honestly must say I don't know if I ever thought I would hear my Lucas say that.

3. My niece came over yesterday so I could do some head shots, then she stayed for dinner.  It is so crazy to me that my niece is in college, I used to babysit her when she was 1!  I really must be getting old.

4. Alex had soccer try-outs this week.  She is already on the team, it is more of just a formality, and they wanted lots of people there to look impressive for the new kids they are trying to recruit.  Thankfully she loves soccer as club soccer is a whole other ball game and year round here... it never really ends.

5. Ryder had a playdate with his friend Aubrey yesterday.  They are great friends and actually play really well together.   Yesterday during the playdate I got the following text from her mom.
 "These two are cracking me up!  Aubrey's all dressed up as a southern belle.  She plugged in our disco ball and announces that they're having a Princess Disco Party.  I look over and see Ryder standing there with this dumbfounded look on his face.  He watches for a minute then says, 'I'm leaving..' and turns and walks away."

Thankfully they quickly did find something else that they both wanted to do, guess that was just a little too girly for Ryder.
