weekend events

To kick off the weekend, Schaun brought home a new toy. He is quite the salesman I have to say. He has been wanting this toy for a while, but I didn't think he really really wanted it so. He talked his bosses into it somehow. We now have a motorcycle in our garage. A Harley to be exact. He has no idea how to ride this thing. That is the funniest part. I'm sure there will be more updates on this subject later.

Bridget is taking an Intro to Sports class thru Johnson County Parks and Rec. This is a little soccer class. We all go along for it. Becca doesn't mind not getting to play as long as she can just go she is happy. Bridget is trying really hard. She is so cute with her ponytail, shoes, and shin guards. Becca stayed over at the side and played in the gravel--she was filthy!

Labor Day Weekend

What a busy busy weekend. I can't complain about anything though. We had fun and had perfect weather. Saturday I took the girls and ran some errands then we met up with Schaun and had lunch at our Chinese buffet. Bridget and Becca both love Chinese. Bridget loves the shrimp, she calles them brains. A little weird and gross but a little funny too. Becca loves it all especially if she can dip it in the sweet and sour sauce--nothing like red broccoli.

Saturday evening Schaun and I had a date night. We had dinner at Abuelos at ZonaRosa--it was yummy. Then we headed over to the Legends Mall. That T-Rex place is the coolest place around. I suggest everybody go visit it. Kids or not because who doesn't like dinosaurs?

Sunday we stayed around the house. Cleaned up the yard a bit. Schaun tried to teach Becca to dribble her mini basketball. Bridget starts a soccer class next Saturday and he was trying to give her a little lesson kicking and NOT using your hands. The no hands part was tough for her.

Then we had my brother and sister in law over for dinner. They have three kids so there was something for everybody to keep busy with. Schaun grilled a dinner of steak, corn, and potatoes--it was delicious!

Today we took the girls to Blackbob park where the cool castle playground is. Then we went for a drive. This is an O'Brien fun event. Not one of mine. I really do not enjoy being in the car and driving for no reason --it is just silly to me. But anyways....we drove out to Hillsdale Lake and Louisburg Cider Mill. At the Lake we found a stable. We pulled up just to let the girls look at the horses and the man there waved at us to get out. So we chatted with him for a while, he gave us a little tour and let Bridget sit on his horse, Rebel. Becca didn't want any part of getting on the horse and kept telling me to get Bridgy down.

It was such a nice weekend. I hate to see it end.

So far it's worth it

That is Bridget's school. She has been for three weeks and has learned so much. I am amazed! She has learned the Pledge of Allegiance, can name all the months of the year, recognizes new letters, and has started to learn how to write her name. That is just a few things, there is so much everyday. They have been studying dinosaurs which seems to be fun, she is happy to tell you all about them.

Then I have poor little Becca. She is so sad when Bridget leaves each morning. She keeps asking who her teacher is and where her friends are. Awwwww, so sad. I hope she really does enjoy pre-school when it's time. She is a duck of a different feather than Bridget. So there is no telling how she will react to things sometimes.

Not much going on around here. My calendar for September is fairly empty. I am looking forward to teaching my first class, but that is not until the 29th. I hope we make it to the Renaissance Festival this year. I really enjoy it out there. And I hope we can go pick apples too. There have not been any apples for picking the last two years, I hope we can do this so Becca can experience it with us. Our visit to the pumpkin patch is sneeking up on us. This is one of my favorite things to do. It is fun, relaxed, outdoors, and makes for fantastic photos!

The heat this summer was just so terrible. I seem to have put my camera away and forgot about it. I think it is cooling off now. So that means there will be new photos to share soon.
