Labor Day weekend: I stayed home. My family went and had fun at the lake with my parents and I didn't. They had a great time riding wave runners, swimming and tubing. I had a good time doing laundry, yard work, laundry, watching my cousin sing the National Anthem at a rodeo, laundry, helping my Mother in law pick out a puppies and helping her potty train these puppies (PUPPIES!!) and did I mention laundry?? I think I did 15 loads and I still don't think it is all finished. I washed everything washable in our house. Then when my family came back home....lake (gross) laundry.
Puppies: As I mentioned my MIL got the cutest little puppies. I am talking adorable off the scales. She got a female Yorkie-poo. Over the past 4 months my MIL had to put two of her three animals to sleep due to old age. She decided to get a puppy. Well this puppy whined all night, so she decided it needed a playmate so they can keep each other company (Granny, who lives with my MIL has a chihuahua that doesn't want anything to do with the puppies). So she went the next day and got the cutest little ball of fluff shih-tzu. He is a male. Their names are Sophie and Dusty. They are ADORABLE! Since it has been the two of them, they sleep at night instead of whine. They are the same age so they play great together. I love these puppies. I have been helping my MIL out by going over and taking them outside every two hours while she is at work. Believe me, it is not a burden on me because I get to play and cuddle with these babies.
School for Elexis is going very well. We have had open house and got to hear what all the teachers have planned for the kids (I also found out why I had to send 6 rolls of scotch tape for science...such a waste). Elexis has been going to every before and after school practice for her cello. She starts her private lessons back next week. She really wants to make these two honor orchestras. I know she can do it, because she is determined. She also has been going to a youth group at a church we have been trying out. She is loving that! I pick up her cousin and we eat chick fil a. I drop them off and I head to the gym. All of our after school activities start back next week. I like it because she stays busy and doesn't just sit around. Any time she wants to drop something, we will let her (as long as she finishes to the end though...no quitting in the middle). This is the first time in three years we have not done musical theatre. I am kind of sad about it, but mostly relieved. I will still try to help out with costumes if they will let me.
I guess I will end this for now. I have really missed all of you. I do not plan on letting so long go between posts.
They both are about 8 inches long
I just loved this picture. Lots of fruit around our house.
