Daily life here in GA

No new pics right now, sorry! When we are busy at school, I just don't think to take pictures to post. I will try and do better over the weekends---or next week. It will be our spring break! We will be off for a week. When we return to school, we'll only have 30 days left of the school year. Can you believe it? Wow.

A few things coming up or recent news:
-I am registering Anna Grace for kindergarten in a week or so. Hard to believe she is starting official school! She will come to school with me but go the daycare every afternoon for afterschool care. That way she can have a snack and play while I finish my work. Since I work at the school she will attend, I have a bit of say in who I would like for her teacher. I have two in mind who I think will be a good fit for her personality. I hope it works out!
-We are heading to Gulf Shores, AL for a few days next week assuming the weather holds. As of today it's supposed to be sunny and pleasant. If it's going to be rainy and cold, we're staying home! I'm not paying money to go sit in a condo! Katie's boyfriend will be there at the same time so she is quite excited. His parents own a house there so will be in town at the same time.
-I went to pick up Abby today at school first (a big deal, let me tell you!) whereupon she told me to leave and get Anna Grace because she still wanted to play. So, I went to get AG who was mad I had come to pick her up because she was just starting an art project. Geesh. Does no one want to come home with mommy anymore!
-Alex continues to run track and has been doing the mile lately. He has his mile run down to under six minutes. Pretty good if you ask me!
-Katie is preparing for her AP US History exam in a month. Her teacher has set aside 4 days per week to hold review sessions. Guess she'll be busy with that. On top of other homework and trying to attend the school baseball games. Busy schedule.
-Alex had his guitar lesson last night and learned part of "Sweet Home Alabama" which I really like! I was so excited. He is quite good at the guitar. We can send him to find the "cheat sheet" music for a song and he can come back able to pick it all out. Wish he was that dedicated to school.
-Dave and I continue to stay in the groove of our daily lives, grow more gray hairs, and try to stay one step ahead of the kids. It's not always easy!

Are you sure she is olde enough to go to K-5???? Mae just misses with her December b-day but I STILL don't think I will be ready in Fall of 2009 to go! She will be skipping in and I will be bawling!
