Last Week

Last week Chad was gone for a few days at the Baseball coaches conference in Waco. The girls and I decided to have some fun while he was gone. The previous post shows you our good deals from Target. We also headed to the playground on Thursday and Emma was just having a great time "talking" to anyone who would listen.

Friday was a beautiful day and so we decided to head to the Zoo. Maddie knew exactly what she wanted to see and when. We of course headed to the elephants first. Maddie did a great job and walked the whole time. We ate lunch at the zoo and then headed home in the early afternoon. The Merry Go Round is under construction, but hopefully next time we go it will be fixed. Friday night we watched a movie and had pizza.

Saturday was another trip to the playground and then over to Diane's to watch the Packers game. Chad just met us there since that was about the time they got back from Waco. He said the conference was pretty good. The speaker on Saturday was Roger Clemens. He stayed clear of any steroid talk.

Sunday we had a pretty normal day. Church, lunch with Wilkes and then home. The girls took long naps and while they were napping, Michael and Christian came over and Chad and I just went bumming. We were going to go see a movie, but there aren't too many good ones out there.
This week has been uneventful. Emma had a doctor's appointment today. She is 33 and half inches and 29lbs. She has some more teeth coming, so can be pretty cranky. We then went to Trinity to sign Maddie up for preschool. So that means that potty training is beginning. She needs to be potty trained to go to school. She wants to go, so hopefully that will help with the process.

It is suppose to be on the cool side here, but hopefully it warms up and dries out for the start of baseball on Monday. That's right baseball starts. There is no school, but Chad has his first day of practice.

Hope everyone stays warm up north. You know that you are always welcome down here.
