this and that

We are still in the midst of a super busy week, lots of stuff, fun and not so fun.
Here she is reciting poetry to all her friends.

Robin went to the regional tournament for her poetry reading last weekend and placed 5th. Only the top three go to the state tournament so that was a little disappointing. 5th place means she is 2nd alternate to state but is already focusing on finding next year's pieces.

This pic and info about the accident are being used with permission of the kid responsible, well permission or resignation, it's a toss up.

We are still dealing with the aftermath of Paul's accident. We went and saw the car when we turned the title over to the wrecker . . . what a sickening feeling. We are so so grateful he is okay.

They took this picture of me because I am such a natural, just wait until I really get going.

I went to my first yoga class. It was fun and I really think that I may have unblocked my chi or become one with the universe because I have stayed up until 11:00 and 12:00 at night cleaning and working on projects and I NEVER do that. Robin kept getting up and saying, "Mom are you okay? Are you worried about something? Do you need to talk?" The best part is that I feel great in the morning. I am looking forward to more classes. I may never have to sleep again.

We rented Paul's tux for prom next week. He is learning just how expensive dating can be. It was fun to see him looking so grown up.

The younger kids and I have been feverishly getting ready for Sara's 8th birthday party. It is Saturday, and it's gonna be great. She will get baptised the next Sunday, the 27th when Grandma Gloria is in town. We're so excited to see her!

Have a great weekend!

Yikes! A car wreck??? I'm glad Paul is OK. I can't imagine how you have time to do everything! I guess the Yoga is helping. :) It's good to see all the fun things your family is doing. Congrats on getting as far as you did, Robin!

congrats to robin and your birthday girl--
about the wreck: glad paul is okay, but you can't really sweat it until he runs over a mentally-challenged lady and lets his car fall down a steep driveway into the neighbor's house.......ahhhhhh. good times.
