Long time no see

Well, I've been MIA for a while, huh? Sorry about that. Life gets in the way sometimes. LOL! The kids and I are back on track with schooling. We had a little period where we just couldn't get into the swing of things and had to take a step back and take some deep breaths.

Morgan has been really getting into bowling more. She has been in 2 tournaments and has done very well. She just received her plaques for the first one and she's thrilled. We will have to find places to hang them. No plaques for the second tournament but it was state-wide and she did great. She had her best game yet, score of 149, and got a turkey (3 strikes in a row)!! The end of April brings the Tennessee State Championship tournament and we can't wait. She is entering with friends and will be participating in team, doubles and singles just like with the city tournament. We will be travelling to Johnson City, TN (NE corner of TN) for the weekend. She is still very much our history buff and into literature and arts. She has some great friends and seems to have finally settled in good here. Just took a while.

Alex is doing good with his bowling but isn't doing any tournaments yet. He's at the younger level that isn't involved in the tournaments. He has made some good friends and is starting to come into his own. He has started losing teeth, finally, and they are coming out quickly. In a matter of a few months he has lost the 4 front teeth and looks toothless! Oh my gosh, it makes him look like such a big boy now too. :-( He has totally lost all baby/little boy look to him. He is still such a character and loves horsing around with Bella (our puppy), playing computer or video games, bugging his sister and dinosaurs. His favorite school subjects are math and science and he loves doing the Highlights Top Secret Adventures. They come once a month and he is the first to grab them. LOL!

I am keeping busy trying to keep up with the kids & their activities, planning our curriculum choices for next year, making some time for myself (gasp), and spending some quality time with Corey. I am also planning a summer get together for the moms group that I've been a part of since pregnant with Morgan. It will be in the Nashville area and I can't wait. It is a few weeks after we go to Orlando for a family get together with my dad & family in July. We are really looking forward to that one. :-)

We got some snow accummulation last weekend and the kids had time to play in it before it melted. Our first really "good" snow and it occurs in March! LOL! That just comes as such a surprise to me. Oh well. We are now getting some delicious spring weather. I am looking forward to seeing some green again. I like the temps of winter but not the bleak gray & brown of everything. Now to get the yard in shape.

We just finished watching The Queen so I'm off to bed. Just had the urge to post something since it has been so long!
