lists and looking back

i love to make lists
i don't always accomplish
everything on them
but just getting the
swirling thoughts out of
my head helps!

so in preparation
for our upcoming road trip
{25 hours cross country...another blog post}
i actually have a notebook
of to do lists!
and those to do lists were
broken down into days...
and so far so good!
in fact i am a little ahead
but somehow,
i know that the night before we leave
i'll still be jumping through my arse
to get it all together!
old habits die hard!

-------
in other news...our weekend...
well, back up to last thursday
the kids had kajukembo
and the big girl has been
working so hard
on her forms
and she decided she wanted to
show her instructor her kata
thinking he might give her a few
things to work on...
but instead, she earned
a stripe on her belt!
she was beside herself
and i was so proud
i nearly cried!
way to go girl!

saturday...
mason graduated from preschool!
is he handsome or what?



we let him pick a lunch spot
and we took them to see UP!
{awesome movie!}
at lunch, he wanted to show me
a trick with milk in his mouth...
ugh...
so he fills his mouth with milk,
and opens it to tell me to look...
and milk cascades down the front of him!
poor planning buddy, maybe next time!

sunday...
we took the kids to their
first MLBaseball game...
and due to persistent
camera battery problems,
we didn't get but one pic
on the camera!



i took some on my phone
i will try to upload later...
the kids had a good time
although they both let us
know that they didn't really watch
note to self...leave them at home
next time and we can make it a date!

so the rest of my week is
planning and packing!

yeehaw!
