Finally Friday

(added pictures at bottom of post)

Yesterday Jake had his first parent-teacher conference of the year...I have to admit, I wasn't too excited about it.  Tuesday Anna had her conference and had made all A's.  That afternoon, Jake worked on his homework for an hour after school, then, after his ballgame he stayed up until 11:30 doing homework, then woke up at 6 Wednesday morning to finish.  Needless to say, I wasn't too happy with the load of homework he has been having.  I wonder if these teachers even communicate.  The way his class is set-up, he has one class that stays together for the entire day and they just rotate to 3 different teachers.  Seems to me (insert nasty face) that they could communicate a little better.  But, back to parent-teacher conferences...I was pleasantly surprised that Jake had all A's as well.  Made all that homework seem, well, a little easier to swallow.  

Today we don't have school, which I am very thankful for.  I instructed Jake and Joe last night before bed that if they even looked my direction this morning I was gonna unleash a curse on them!!  Jake came in from Gran and Papa's around 7:15 and went straight upstairs and Joe was extra quiet taking his NO AVAIL!!!!   I was WIDE AWAKE at 6:45 and tried for 30 minutes to go back to sleep!!  Decided I might as well be doing something constructive, so I got up and began my daily chores!  It is something I will never understand.  Why is it that on days that we don't have to get up, our eyes pop open like someone threw a glass of cold water on me, but Monday morning, Joe will have to poke me a minimum of 15 times to get me to move a muscle?  Guess it is something that will never make sense to me.

Yesterday I finally got to play in my craft room and I had a really good time.  Made a card for a sweet friend and made her some note cards and a grocery/errand list-type pad that she can stick to the refrigerator.  I didn't take a picture of the pad or the note cards because her name is imprinted on them and not so sure how happy she would be with everyone seeing her name on the internet, but here is her birthday card....

It was a fun card.  I adapted it from a Christmas card I saw here.  Today I hope to make her a cake...I'll post pictures depending on how well it turns out!!!!  

Tonight we are going out with friends to a place in Russellville called Hog Wild.  It is kind of a Chuck-E-Cheeses for older kids.  They have go-carts, putt-putt golf, etc.  Our friend is thinking of having a birthday party there, so we are going with them to check it out.  Should be fun!  Pictures will probably be taken! 

Not much else on the agenda for this weekend...Joe said we may fertilize/winterize the yard and get ready for winter, but I don't know for sure.  Glad we are staying close to home though.  Next weekend we will travel to Dallas to watch the Razorbacks play Texas A&M.  The Aggies played Oklahoma State last night and lost to them by a field goal in the last 2 seconds, so they will be ready to play us, I'm sure.

Better get cookin'  Hope you have a great weekend!!

Bye for now....


Edit:  Pictures from today

I even had a few extra minutes to run down to Mr. Taylor's Produce and pick up some pumpkins...
