Elizabeth does it again

My wonderfully creative daughter has once again made me so proud of her.
Yesterday we learned that her art work won Second Place at the Association of Christian Schools International Regional Art show. Her response "It's only second"
She won First Place at for her class at the school Art show and Best of Show for her elementary school.
I guess she is humble, while mom is overly boastful.

Locked out!

Yesterday was a crazy day for me. I was running late as usual. As I was leaving Rebecca at my mother in laws house we realized that we had forgotten Becca's dance bag at home. So I gave my mother in law my house key. No big deal I can get it when I pick Rebecca up after work.
After school Elizabeth decided that she wanted Wade to pick her up on his way home. So she went with her dad. He told me he was going up to his parents and would probably be home by the time I was.
When I got home I grab my purse, get to the front door and realize that I don't have house keys. Wade is not home, and the cell reception is not that good at his mom's. (I can't call him to tell him I'm locked out.) My first thought is I will just go get mom's key. Mom & Dad are out of town my key to her house is locked in my house. There is not anyone in the office so I can't get in the office to get the key to mom's, to in turn get my key.

The only thing that is un-locked is mom's camper.
Since I still haven't cleaned it up from the sleep over this weekend I decide this is a good time to do so. It is amazing how easy it is to clean something so small and also amazing how fast you can clean it.
After I finish cleaning the camper I decide I will just sit in the car and wait for Wade to get there. I am really glad that I forgot to drop off Maryann's paper recycling while I was at the church. Because I had 3 or 4 months worth of Country Living magazines to read while waiting for Wade and the girls to come home.

Proud momma of a 10 year old!


Ten years ago today I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl. (she doesn't like for me to refer to her as a baby.) I still can not believe she is already 10 years old.
Seems like it was just yesterday we were checking into the hospital for induction, and then the long day of labor followed by an emergency c-section. (I'll tell the full gruesome story some other time)

She is worth every bit of it.
We are so proud of her, on March 8th she won best of show for her elementary school's art show. So on April 21st her art work will go on to a regional competition. Last week we learned that her children's book that she wrote and illustrated will also be going on to the regional competition.
So there is a real possibility that my daughter could some day be a published author!!
That is right I am one proud momma!

Books'n Authors 'n All that Jazz

I just saw in the news paper that Weatherford College will host a free writer's workshop on April 24th. I attended the first one of these about 10 years ago. It was a good workshop. this one looks really good with tons more information.

Why do these thing always have to fall on my kids birthdays? Maybe I can schedule Rebecca's Birthday party for Sunday afternoon rather than Saturday.
