Well tonight is the last night we will be at our Valdosta house...the house where both the boys were born and the first house we ever owned...I think it might be a teary drive off! We actually are staying in the hotel on base until friday morning when we close on both houses and then drive up to our new hometown of Albany, GA. We took the kids up to see the new house on saturday so they are all excited and so am I. It is much BIGGER and NICER than the one we are in right now. God has really blessed us!

I taught my last class at the Valdosta YMCA on friday and it was so sad. I was all teary eyed and all my regulars had tears going also :( I have gotten so close to the people in my will be sad not to see their smiling faces every morning...and you have to admit my job does not feel quite like a job...I get paid for working me and them out! It is in the works for me to start at the Albany Y in January but I will have to start at the bottom up and prove myself all over again. But it is a nice Y and I am excited there was an opening for me! I did get to go run my 8 miles this morning and that felt good! I have been teaching so many classes I don't get to run very much anymore. I feel I will be sore tomorrow!

So I am packing up my computer tonight and will put it back together at our new house! A new adventure awaits!!!

Oh Ellie!!

So I put Ellie to bed the other night and she was mad at me for doing so....I went to the living room and headr her say this "Mom Hanna Montana ROCKS but you do NOT rock!!" and if that was not a big enough insult she then tells me "Mom you are not invited to my 6 year old birthday party!" (side note- her birthday is not until March!!!) Where does she come up with this stuff? I was just laughing to myself....she really thought she had me! I just told her the normal mom response..."ok Ellie, I love you, now GO TO BED!!!"

What is it with kids and the word...

POOP! All the way home from work last night the kids could not stop saying it! Ellie was saying she knew how to spell it and then they were putting poop in front of every word they could think of...poopy Evan, poopy brush, poopy name it they added it! They have done this a few times now, laughing like crazy at themselves...I just don't get it! Is it that funny? Or is it a word that is just slightly naughty so they can say it without getting soap in their mouth but it still pushes my buttons?!
