8 Random Things

I've been tagged. Lisa wants 8 random thoughts...here goes...

1) Well, it's official. I'm old. Nick is IN Jr High. *sigh* I cant help but think about when I was in school. My mind often skips Jr. and goes right to High School. Probably cuz Jr High was SO horrible! It's kind of a blur...

2) I miss my friends terribly. From High School. We've totally lost each other! It stinks. I missed the last two reunions, as they are in Mass. If any of you read this, contact me would ya!! Sheesh... With email, and everything, it's really dumb we don't stay in touch! I guess I'm feeling nostalgic. And being so far away from everyone makes it worse!

3) High School Musical 2 was cute. I couldn't help but think they were doing a "moral" version of Dirty Dancing. It was a different plot, but was basically the same. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Emma is watching it again, right now! I appreciate something I'm not afraid to let her watch! Or the boys for that matter! What a relief. There is so much crap out there. Sure it's cheesy, but the kids have morals, and don't do stupid inappropriate things.

4) Parker gets old on Monday! He starts 4th grade. That is old to me. He is SO excited. And...his 3rd grade teacher, moved up to 4th, and he got her again! We are excited!! She is a great teacher, and is one of the kids, yet, they respect her! We have been friends since her oldest, and my oldest were in kindergarten. They have 7th period together, so at back to school night, I got to tell her about Jack's surgery. She is so caring, and really loves Parker, and gets our family dynamics! It's so nice...not to have to explain...

5) We got Emma's backpack. Pink, High School Musical. I'm nervous and excited for her to be in school. She is so smart, and so tall. I worry about her. Her primary(church) class is made up of kids turning 4 this calender year. I know she is the oldest, but she is a head, and some shoulders, taller than all of them. She's well spoken, and I don't have trouble understanding her. Maybe it's just the kids in her class. She is the only one with WAY older siblings. I'm sure that has a lot to do with it. I just worry she will be bored. Whatever...she'll be fine...

6) I'm sick of impending doom. Jack's been fine. He's had a couple of times when I question my decision. I don't know...we'll see. Tuesday is coming fast. Just not fast enough.

7) I feel like this surgery was a slap in the face. Sure we've been expecting it. But it's still not easy to hear it! Plus, I think we just got to where he was GREAT! Walking and being so funny. I think we forgot he had issues. We were rudely reminded! I have been so paralyzed this week. I hate it when that happens. It's hard to snap out of it...

8) I did cut loose long enough to take the kids to the "Aquarium" I put it in quotes, cuz it is very small, but still fun! The kids had a BLAST! Here are pictures from it.

Those are my random thoughts! Hope you made it to the end! Hope they are random enough...

Hey woman. We have Jack in our prayers. We'll be there forever on Tuesday, so at some point I will hunt you guys down. Kiss your two babies for me, they are so cute. And tell your boys I think they're pretty cool. Unless they'll think that's bad, then don't tell them anything. *grin*
