Funny things kids say & do!

so, trav is so wanting to get back to school!
he asked why he couldn't go right now...
i told him that the teachers are on vacation right now.
his reply: "ms. orr (his teacher last year) is at grandma's house?"

cayley: well, this summer we have been going to the gym at least 3 days a week and i've lost 20lbs :) the kids are having a great time at the kids club area- whoohoo!
my mom calls and tells me that cayley thinks she may not recognize me when she get back from her 3 week vacation in sa--- "mommy might be too skinny" LOL no worries cayley- promise :)

adam: so, our kids love any kind of suspense kind of movie and lately one channel has been showing "jaws" every few days- cayley had made this paper shark thing at reading camp and fo rsome reason adam knew exactly where to find it! so he ran and got it when he heard the jaws theme music!!!! it was so funny!

What I learned from tv this week

What an emotion roller coaster week it's been. So right to the point- does anyone else in the world watch "the baby borrowers"? i was so skeptical of this show when it first started, but it was more than just entertaining, it was teaching life's lessons to these teen couples in fast forward. sure it was fun to see then freak out when changing diapers and chasing toddlers, but last night when they lived with an elderly person- it was so moving! they embraced the life experiences that these people shared with them and seemed to really enjoy their company- even when having to help them shower, take meds, etc.. i cried at the end though- none of the teen couples were together anymore when they did the update! but i'm sure they came away with lessons that will follow them for life.

randy pausch:
when i first saw his interviews months ago- i was so that he's passed- i just feel for his wife and kids. how do you prepare yourself for this...let alone your spouse? yes- we are all going to die at some point, but to know that your time will be much shorter than you ever expected and in the midst of your children's magical childhoods. randy speaks of not letting things wait- if there's something in life you want to do-- don't wait around! be the person you want to be right now!
makes me wonder what kind of legacy i will leave when i am gone. what will my babies remember? what will be really important to them? did i spend too much time on the things that didn't matter?
these pics at the top are what keep me going- being with my family- showing how much they mean to me- and sharing little moments- that's what counts to me.
