Happy Saturday morning!

Good morning all. It is a cloudy Saturday morning here and I'm trying to get my groove on...trying to get the to-do list done for the day and also to find the motivation to get started on it too. I've only been up for about 45 minutes and am only on the first cup of java though. Maybe I need a little bit of time for it to kick in before I get moving.

Yesterday was the start of Spring Break for my kiddos. We started the break with a day at Florida State University. This is where Josh will be headed in a few months and yesterday was our first visit to the campus. Needless to say, he is far more excited now and cannot wait for August to get here! I'm pretty excited for him too but I know that things are going to be a lot different around here with only Emily living at home.

The weather in Tallahassee yesterday was awful! It started off a bit cloudy but by 11am, the storms were coming in and there was even a tornado warning for the area. I could not believe how dark it got for a while and the rain was coming down in BUCKETS!!

However, because of the rainy day, we were able to see the latest fashion trend. WELLIES!!!! Or at least that's what we used to call them. Not sure what the official name for them is now but they were EVERYWHERE!! And there were hardly any two alike! As the day progressed, it became a joke between Alex and I...and probably another something for the parents to use to embarass the soon to be college student too...when we saw someone else with them on, we'd point them out and "ooh and ahh". There were soooooooo many different styles...stripes, polka dots, hearts, camo, citrus fruit, frogs, rubber ducks and plain...just to name a few. It wasn't till the end of the day though that I thought to take a couple of pictures...duh!

Speaking of pictures. Josh told me before we even left Orlando that he would NOT pose for any pictures while we were there. And boy, did he hold me to it. I was able to snap a couple while he wasn't looking...like he and his dad mapping out the course of the day...but other than that...NADA! At the end of the day though, we at the stadium and I snuck a couple of others but when he saw me...this is what I got. I sure hope that he changes his outlook on pictures and takes LOTS in college. Now my job is to start working on him...warning him that when we move him up there in August...I "WILL" be getting a LOT of pictures. I gave him this time and might even go without pictures at orientation in June...but college move in time is MINE!

Well, Alex just came in and told Emily that its time for her to "get to work". I guess that's my cue too. Darn it...time to get the to-do list done for the day and get busy! Ho hum! But hey...on a good note...if I get my stuff done now, I can play later...right? (that's what I tell the kids...maybe I should start by example?)

I read all of my LOM handouts in the car and listened to Stacy's audio messages too...I'm ready to catch up on the LOM assignments. Excited about them actually...excited to scrapbook again soon! I haven't done a layout since August and by golly, (yes, I said by golly) I MISS IT!

Till next time!!!!

Tell him he has to make a choice. He can let you take pictures on move-in day or he can be embarrassed by your gut wrenching sobs. Taking pictures will distract you enough to keep you from crying. And you may not really want to see the pictures he takes when he is in school. That's what Matt tells me anyway, and I think I am going to take his word for it.
