Random Updates to appease my family:

-Andrew started an after school reading program to help him catch up to his classmates.  He's still a math genious.  The other day he came home offended because he now has to do an extra math page a day for homework because everyone else in the class "just doesn't get it yet, but I DO". 

-Lissy has been getting into trouble at school this last week.  I don't know whats up with her, but she's talking and being disruptive in class, being slow to obey & giving silly answers to questions she already knows.  We had an impromptu meeting with her teacher the other day and we have a few plans in place for next week.  I'm hoping things will improve.

-Sarah loves to do the dishes.  Little Grandma made me and the girls matching aprons for Christmas.  So whenever Sarah sees me start to do the dishes, she pushes up her stool, puts on her apron and "helps".  Its more fun to do a boring chore when you have a cute little "helper" by myside.

-Aaron still works way more than he should.  Things are looking better as of this week. 

-I'm completely booked for fund raisers in the month of March.  Everytime I do that I'm exhausted by the end of the all.  I keep reminding myself that I said I wouldn't do that again and then remembering that I really do enjoy it so being that tired is really worth it all.

-My cousin just called me.  She is getting married in a few months and wants me to photograph the wedding.  I'm looking forward to a trip to Utah.  Staying at Julie's house is like a little mini retreat, only better because Julie is there.  We stay up way too late and eat way too much.

-I went to a party last night.  I loved seeing my best friend.  She bought me rootbeer because she loves me.  She might drive to Vegas with me because she's cool like that.

-I made some really cute tiles for our Young Women in the ward.  It has the 2010 Youth theme on it which is:  “Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest” (Joshua 1:9).  I really like this scripture.  I'll post pictures soon.

-My feet are cold.

-I made Rosemary Rolls last night.  I put in too much flour so they were a little tough, but they still tasted good.  I might try them again.

-The house across the street from me is for sale.  The agent says it will be listed for about $74,000.  I really want to buy it so I can control who moves in, but no tengo dinero.  So, if you're nice, you should buy it.

-The Merced Art Hop is tonight in downtown Merced.  I get to photograph the event.  It should be fun.  You should go.
