What a week!

Things never seem to slow down around here! And I have to work this Sat! MISD is paying the diags to test the little GT kids. Should be fun! Coy and the girls have a birthday party at noon. Seems like everyone has a birthday in January! I'm still fighting the crud a little. Went back to the doctor Thursday and got some antibiotics and a good decongestant. JoGail is still receiving birthday presents.... I don't think it will ever end at this point. But hey-you're only 8 once! Last night we put fingernail polish on and stickers on her fingernails-she has aparty this afternoon afterall!!!!!!!!It's cold and really windy here. Coy and Grace went ot he soccer and basketball games last ight. They said they would go get cold at soccer then go to the gym to warm up. I know it's a calendar issue thing, but how fun can soccer really be in the dead of winter???????? (FYI_UIL soccer season runs concurrent with basketball) have to choose between the two as it is....I don't think that' sright either and will tell them so when they finally get around to asking me!!!!!!Coy's staying busy. He has really enjoyed getting to play around with his new laptop from the grant her helped write. I believe all the teachers have recevied theirs now. (Not bad turn around time in my opinion.) He had board meetin glast Tuesday night. Grace is getin gused to her braces. She is dreading the first tightening. Apparently some kids in her class have to her to be ready that it hurts.I told her they were wimpy and that we would take some advil before we left!

Team Extreme

Here's some pictures from the the Team Extreme basketball game this evening. We lost 12-5 but they girls definately improved throughout the game. Our next game is next Sat. We played trinidad in this game. I got to use my new camera so I was excited. I still have some learning to do with it but sure enjoy it.
In the first picture she is getting into position. In the second one she is shooting a technical foul free throw. She missed the first bu tmade the second. And the last one is her throwing it in.
Now we are all focusing on getting ready for JoGail's 8th birthday party next Sat! WOOHOO!!We also have a soccer tournament in Eustace to go to and then Grace's game next Sat. night. And WE ALL have school in between!!!!!!

I think I figured it out...finally!

Here's a picture of Grace with her new braces!Looks like she has bling bling in her mouth!!!She chose purple and gold bands. We go back in 6 weeks for a tightening and will do so for 2 years. She has her first basketball game this evening. I am going to try and take pictures!Of course she is nervous and having to wait all day to play doesn't help!
