Uncle Joe went shopping today and came home with a Wii. He and the girls have been playing it all evening. I think it is great since it combines SOME physical activity with video games.
If you don't know, you have a "mii" , an electronic representation of yourself to play with in the game. You design your "mii" to look like you. Uncle Joe's was pretty accurate, what with the bald head and all it wasn't too hard. Carly's mii has big eyes just like hers, and Cassidy's hair looks a lot like hers. I just couldn't get mine right. The eyes were very hard to choose......beauty is hard to duplicate. *snickering* haha
We just finished a week of VBS. We being my children and my mother. They had a lot of fun, but I believe the adults are totally glad they are done!! The music was great and I expect that we will be hearing it being sung at the top of Cassidy's lungs for months. :o) There was two songs that I loved and learned pretty quick when I went up to help today. It always chokes me up to see all those kids up on stage singing their hearts out to Jesus. Cassidy gave her heart to Him today. What a great day this turned out to be!
Carly was a helper the whole week and her teacher, Mrs. Joyce said she was a huge help. There were a couple of kids who took a shining to her and kinda wallered her all week. (Just a preview of parenthood I say!)
I WAS going to take some time off next week to be with my hubby while my children are at Branson Missouri with my parents for their annual get away, but my request was not approved. Dang it!! I was looking forward to some uninterrupted time with UJ.
Summer School has started and Cassidy attends from 8-12 Monday - Thursday. She gets up so nicely so far! I hope it continues. It is easy to stay up too late at night since it is summer break.....so we are working on staying on schedule.
I am very sleepy at this moment and will go to bed now.
Good night Y'all!
