Happy Halloween!

Aren't you scared? Lucas decided to be Megatron (from Transformers), leader of the decepticons this year for Halloween. He was so cute-he told one of girls at my office that when she saw him in his costume she was going to scream and run like a girl-LOL!!! We did our trick-or-treating in record time this year, one hour and we were done and had a bucket full of candy. Micah of course is too old to go so he says and ended up going to a friends house and passed out candy.

We did go to a Halloweeen party at my office on Friday and Lucas was "King of the Cake Walk" winnning 3 dozen cupcakes, 2 dozen cookies, a plate of brownies, and Micah won a big giant decorated cookie. We finally had to cut him off and he got so mad that I wouldn't let him win anymore goodies!

Hope everyone had a Happy Halloweeen!

Way to Go Micah!

Ok so today was Parent-Teacher conferences and I never worry, but Micah "claims" he doesn't know what grades he is getting. How is that possible? So I head into conferences a little leary as to what I am going to hear, so here is the run down as I circle room:

Science teacher-" Oh what can I say about Micah, he is wonderful! Alwyas stays on task and I enjoy having him in class." Grade A

Writing teacher-"Micah is great, no problems and such a wonderful kid to have in class." Grade A

Social Studies teacher-"Micah doing a great job, have to find a challenge for him as comes very easy and he is just going through motions really. Enjoy having him in class." Grade A

Algebra teacher-"Well Micah does good, took about half the quarter for him to get going but doing well. He and one other student have highest grades in class. He does good off some, but if he would put his nose to grindstone there is no reason he cannot get an A in this class (which is a HS level Algebra class)." Grade A-

Reading teacher-"I just want you to know how much I appreciate having Micah in class, he is wonderful and I never have any concerns with him. He is not in a very good class of kids and never lets that bother him, does a wonderful job." Grade A

Now mind you he tells me he hates his reading teacher and she said the nicest things about him. Although I have to wonder about fact that she said I signed a grade check she sent home and I haven't signed anything-so I asked Micah if he signed my name and he claims no. Hmmmm.... sounds like a little of his Aunt Denise in him!

Way to go Micah, we are very proud of you!

Wow long time no post!

Well alot has been happening since my last post amd I hope to be better about posting in future! So let's get caught up on all the happenings here in our little corner of the world.

Micah's baseball team coached by dad ended up finishing the spring season 3rd in State of MO and 37th in Nation, they finished 9th at the State tourney out of 40+ teams. Micah is coming into his own and it's exciting to watch him grow as a ball player as we quickly approach High School ball.

While at the State baseball tourney, Pat was ejected for the 1st time from a game. This will be very memorable for our family as it happened on Father's Day too-LOL!!! Funny thing is that he did not cuss as umpire or anything just asked for some consistency in his calls.

Micah is also now an 8th grader and and officially a teenager, which may be the death of me. HE wants nothing to do with mom and thinks we are worst parents in world!!!

Our little Lucas finshed his 2nd season of t-ball and is quickly becoming a little baseball stud himself. He loves to play baseball!

And me of course, I just chase all these guys in my life and continue to make cards for soldiers who are deployed.

Proud Mommy Moment!

OK after all the nagging Micah about turning in reading logs, he has once again made us proud! He got his 3rd quarter report card and had straight A's and a 4.0 gpa! He must take after his brilliant momther- right? Man sometimes he drives me crazy, but I guess if is the only problems we have with him then we are pretty lucky!

Hello, are you listening???

Sometimes I wonder if these boys of mine ever listen and now know why my parents used to get aggravated with us girls. I feel like a broken record with that hard-headed, oldest son of mine. Micah is a straight A student, except when it comes to reading. Not because of anything but the dreaded reading log, what is a reading log you may wonder?

Each week they are supposed to read 60 minutes, write is down, and have it signed- sounds easy, right? Not for my son, I check his grades periodically and there is always missing reading logs. When checking recently 150 points of reading logs are missing which dropped his grade to a B because he is too LAZY to turn them in.

Lecture time and all the while thinking "Unbelievable, I sound like my parents." They always told me it was coming, but I never believed. TRUST ME I AM A BELIEVER NOW!!!

Basketball is officially over!

Hooray, basketball has officially ended! Although Micah is probably not as excited as we are, it has been a very up & down season. Micah has gained some confidence back playing CRBC ball after a horrfic season of 7th grade basektball. He still struggles with his shot, but scored in almost every game with several 3 point shots throughout season!

As you can tell Lucas is glad to see basketball season come to an end soon. I couldn't resist taking this shot at one of games. He told me he was tired, so he layed down between bleachers and passed out. He slept through almost entire game, hard to believe with all the buzzers and cheering going on but he did!

Baseball season here we come!!!

Tuckered out

The most peaceful time in our house it when Lcuas looks like this-LOL!!! Boy is he a talker and full throttle from the moment he wakes up until he goes to sleep. He will talk your head off about anything and everything, wearing you down. However it is peaceful moments like this that make you appreciate the everyday happenings!
