So I wanted to start Preschool with Savannah. I know she is young and may not really know what is going on but what the hell. It keeps her away from the TV. So when I got online and start looking. Doing my homework and look for a cute, fun way to do this.I can across a web page called NO TIME FOR FLASH CARDS. On this web page they show you cute things to do with letters. they also go to the library and get a few book. I took that Idea and put a little twist on it. I went to the Craft store and got a frame and the stuff to make a magnet board for the letters. So in her room she had a cute frame with the Letter A. At the Library Savannah and I got books about Alligators and apples. Then I made an really big A and let her color it and turn the A into an alligators. I made a few more A so Savannah next week can make an apple A and an Alien A. Savannah LOVED her first day of preschool. when she got up from her nap it was all set up for her. The 2 books on Alligators the frame and the stuff to make the A alligator. She liked to glue the teeth and eyes on, She did not color to much but who cares. She sure had fun showing Erik when he got home. Savannah told him it was in alligator then showed him the frame with the letter A. She knows the letter A when you ask her. Lets hope she can remember it.

Cady and Rylee are in a dance group. Every year they have a dance Review. At the review the Dad's take the kids out on the dance floor and dance. Rylee dad does not live her so Erik take her out. He is so good with her. He spins her around and at the end of the song he does the dip. Rylee and Erik sure are fun to watch. Cady looked to good. If we could all look as good as Cady life would be great. Rylee looked great in her dress. I helped pick out the dress this year. It was fun seeing her try the dresses on. I just wanted everyone to see how cute they looked. I LOVE YOU GIRLS!!!!
I forgot to tell everyone the best part of the night. So the dance teacher put something on for the girls... She had all the moms come out. The moms did a great job dancing. Cady and Rylee had no clue that there mom's had been doing this 2 night a week for 2 months. Debbie is one great dance and Brenda did good also. Everyone get on YOUTUBE and look up http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUcb-yFySgY&feature=email
One Sunday Erik and I got a wild hair and got Rylee, Erik's Grandma and Grandpa together loaded them up into the car and head to the lake. Erik sure knows how to show everyone a good time. He set up a canape and made sure everyone had a chair, lunch and a drink. When Erik was doing the hard work. I took Savannah out to play in the lake and play in the sand. She had so much fun. She could not sit there and do nothing. She was all ways playing in the sand or pulling some one to the water. Erik, Troy and I all tried to catch a fish but no luck. Dang! I was sure a great time. The only bad thing I have to say about the trip is we keep finding red sand in the car. It is all over the place. OH but to make up for that. On the way home we found a new tube in the middle of the road. Thanks to who ever lost it!!!
OK so if i could I would go fishing everyday. Don't care if it is on a boat shore dock or in a pond. I just love to fish. Marty has a boat and also like to fish so we went out one weekend. It was a blast. Everyone got a fish or 2. Erik likes to make fun of me because I catch the first fish or the biggest fish. I let him talk then I add on that "yes I can out fish you boys. My Grandpa Burns showed me how to do it" So Grandpa Thanks for showing me how to catch fish. Anyone up for a fishing trip let me know. Savannah is also starting to like fishing and going to the lake. (Erik did not want a photo but I got one of him taking the fish off. Don't tell)
Savannah loves Lilly. Savannah asked lilly to go on a play date out to the Green Spring splash park. Those two had so much fun. They ran from the water to the slides and all over the grass. We also took them for a walk around the park. It sure was fun. Like I said in the last post Savannah does not like to go in the shooting water part. so she just filled up the bucket and played in that. Cute lilly was so funny. She got everyone wet. Don't tell her but it kinda felt good to cool down.
There is a water park up the street from are house. Savannah likes to take walks up there and play all day. They have this lazy river. (i think that is what you call it) The river has big sand stone rocks in it for the kids to play on. Savannah likes the rocks but the bad thing is what her butt looks like after. Not the best thing. red every where. It does not wash out to good also. In the front of the park they have a splash pad. The water shoots up in different places. Savannah does not like it to much. We can't get her to go in that part. She run around it and maybe out her foot in but that is as far as she'll go.
Erik all ways asks Savannah who loves her. (He thinks this is so funny) Erik asks Savannah and she gets this big smile on her face and goes "DADDY LOVES ME". then she gets a little red. She is just so funny. Now Erik thinks he is the big man around the house. Erik gets home and it is bye bye mom. It is so fun to see Savannah hanging on Erik.

So my mom has been dating Mark Goodman for about 5 years. He is a great man and does so much for my family. So Let me tell you when my mom told me she was getting married and moving into there new house in a month. I just about died. I did not know what to say. Do I say.... " you are crazy for doing this all in a month," or do I say "mom, I am so happy for you and mark and wish you the best." I took the easy road and said " Good luck what can we do to help?" SO May 21 comes and I saw an Angel walking to her new Husband. I do not have the words to tell everyone how happy I am for my mom and Mark...
MOM and MARK. I wish you both luck. This has been a long time coming and thank god it came. Love you Both!
