Cribs and Other Happenings

New/Noteworthy: We got a crib for the baby!

Kymberly got 250 points out of a possible 240 on her science poster that we did a couple weeks ago. The teacher said, "WONDERFUL!"

Andrew went to youth group last night for the first time. He had a good time. We were really early (thought it started at 7; it starts at 7:30) so we sat and chatted with the woman who hosts and helps lead. That was nice.

Interesting Activity: We rearranged our room and put the crib together in the corner.

Biggest Accomplishment: We found a crib, brand new, 20% off, and paid cash!

Where I went: All over town looking for a crib

What I learned: Burlington has some really good deals on baby stuff.

My chemistry student that I tutor failed her final. :( But the class average was a D+, so it was a really hard test. I think her mom is making too big a deal out of it. At any rate, I started thinking about how she can better prepare so she's not so flustered when it comes to taking tests. She understands the material when we do the homework together. Something happens when she sits down in class though.

Plans for the Weekend: I want to sew on Saturday, and Sunday watch the Super Bowl. Josh's birthday is Tuesday, so we're having our fun food and stuff for the superbowl. And I'll make him a yummy cake. The kids are with us this weekend, they won't be with us on Tuesday, so we'll do his present and cake and stuff on Sunday.

Fun Photo(s): The crib and nursery area!

Putting the headboard cover in.

I'm trying to assemble the mobile ... those are teh directions in the crib.

The whole nursery area. Remember: the crib set was only $20!!!

The kids are with us every other week, and with their mom every other week.

I've been meaning to tell you THANK YOU. I finished Heroin Diaries. Man, it was unbelievable!! And I bought the Sixx AM cd shortly after Christmas on your recommendation. It is amazing!!!! I love it!!! I love the music, and the lyrics mean so much if you'ver read the book. The book is definitely not for the squeamish, though.
