Spit Balls

Today is a gorgeous day outside! I am so ready for spring, my kids are to, they have all of this nervous energy where they are chasing each other around the house and driving me nuts. We have some major cleaning to do in the house today, so they can't play until it is done.

We went to LaParilla's after church today, the kids love going to the Mexican restaurant. I enjoy it to, but today we dropped $70 just to feed all of us!

So we are sitting there waiting on the check when out of the corner of my eye I saw something fly by, and then I realized what was going on. Colby, my four year old has officially learned how to spit spit-balls. I am not sure how long he had been doing it when I caught him. Of course he is sitting there with a huge grin on his face because he has just mastered a new skill. A right of passage for all boys. Michael shakes his head no at him (knowing that he is just going to try it again and trying to contain his laughter). So he doesn't do it anymore. We get ready to leave and I make all the kids take their kid cups with them since they are paper cups with lids and they charged me $2 each for them. Everyone grabs them but Colby who is grabbing his straw and all of the extra straws on the table. All the way home him and his brothers are spitting spit balls. Michael says "Welcome to the world of boys" Well, I have been in this world of boys for 13 years now, but now there are three of them, all different and rambunctious. Michael actually raised his voice at them on the way home and now they have to clean out the car since they made such a mess. Which is pretty funny because I am the one that usually looses my cool.

Ahh, being the mother of three boys is exciting, challenging and the rewards are endless.
Spit balls and all, I am blessed.

Slacker

Ok I am officially a slacker, it has been a whole month since I posted anything!!! Not so good at the blogging. Needless to say this month has been quite eventful and exhausting.


Updates...

Devyn went on her college tour and loved it. She really like UGA, but fell in love with Valdosta State. She still has a while to decide. I am still not ready for her to leave the nest.

Daulton is driving me crazy, typical 8th grade boy. He has been slacking lately (guess I now know where he gets that from) three fat F's on the progress report, in all of his AC classes. We have taken away everything, the computer, his phone, he can't watch tv, what more is there to take away. Well daddy gave a ultimatum, get the grades up in three days (because he had zeros for classwork and he has only missed 1 day of school- what is up with that?) or he will get the hair cut that DAD wants him to have, you know -shaved!!! Daulton totally freeked and in three days had one F up from a 44 to a 72. He has one up from a 65 to an 88 and the other is now a C.Well, wish we would have threatened it sooner. We will see when the final report card comes out- if he still has hair.

Brady finished up basketball and is playing baseball. He is a sweet kid, but boy when he gets something in his head he just won't quit.

Gracie is just as sweet as ever, poor thing has been so sick. She has missed three days of school with a fever and the croup. She is feeling better and will be going back tomorrow.

Colby-well Colby is Colby. He was so sick last week with an upper respiratory infection and the croup. I had to give him amoxicillan and he didn't want to take it because it was PINK. such a boy! He is better now and just as silly as ever.

Addison- is the same, she is too rotten to get sick, whatever this bug is that the kids have had it was too scared of her. Little miss sassy. She is 2 going on 16, literally I have a 16 year old and the only difference is the height.

Work has been crazy, my first audit... and we have budget cuts. If I can just make it through this week, Devyn and I leave for Disney next Friday her sweet sixteen and mine plus 18 years!! Can't wait!!
