Kids, life and anyone in Houston?

Well well well how I ever got the impression that parenting would get easier the older they got is just CRAZY!!! lol Things have been nuts around my house with back talk and multiple other things to drive mommies crazy I am not sure if any of my kiddos will make it past 10yrs old!! So I have three parent teacher conferences this week, a job interview, walk to school day, another appoint, a bunch of friend's bday's and OMG what a week! Gosh and Halloween is coming and I have to search the garage for the decorations to make the kids happy. You know what though it is worth their smiling face's to get it done!

We went to the Natural History Museum today cause they opened back up and had a bunch of cool stuff going on! They have been closed all summer for fire renovations so we have been dying to be able to go! We had a great time making fossils, digging for fossils, listening to info about the Ice Age Mammals and being able to touch 30thousand yr old fossils!! We are such dorks!!!

I am going to Houston the weekend of my bday and I was curious if any of you guys in Houston would like to hang out while I am in the area!!?!?! If so send me a tell and we will get together!

Here is a pic of the kids in front of the new Sabertooth statue at the museum!(Mine are the three by the head)

P’s bday and other random thoughts!

P's bday has come and gone she is 7yrs old and I cannot figure out where the time has gone. I took cupcakes to her class as she requested and we had bagels for a snack after school. She got to pick dinner and she loved all her presents. She really is such an easy kid and I am blessed to have her and be her mommy!

We had a crazzzzyyyyy weekend although I cannot speak of it as yet. Working out has been well a bitch! I got a membership at the Y and I love it, but gosh I have to say that getting the motivation to go is well hard for me! I have really made a big difference in my lifestyle even with the little I have done, but could do soooooo much more!! I am surprised to find my body adjusting well to the changes except my feet they hurt like FRACKIN hell! I guess I need better shoes although I am really not sure what the deal is, my right foot hurts worse and I think I may be compensating for my left leg and ankle which I broke years ago.

It has been really interesting me trying to fit classes, studying, working out, seeing the kids, helping them with homework and the household chores all in lately I have to say I think I am doing well, but we all have our days! I got some fresh lemon basil from Shawn and Sharon today and I am marinating chicken with it lemon juice, honey, olive oil, pepper and garlic overnight. Tomorrow I am making lemon basil chicken, broccoli/cauliflower with cheese sauce and rice for dinner the kids are so excited! They love getting herbs from Shawn and Sharon's garden!

Marathon Kids!

I just wanted to toot my own horn for a sec! lol My kids have a program at school called Marathon kids that we have participated in the last 3yrs and today was kick off day! The kids will run a total of 26 miles throughout the school year. Two of those miles are included in the kick off day and the celebration at the end of the school year with the parents. We had a very successful mile jog/run per kid and I have to say that I am really proud of my kiddos!! Each one was able to run/jog the entire mile even Spunky it was so cool! Each grade runs by themselves the kinder-3rd runs with their parent, 4th & 5th run alone so we all had a good workout today! LOL

Here are a few pictures:
