Update, Challenges, Layout & FREEBIE

I am so bad at keeping up with laundry. I have the front-loading washer & dryer, so I can't seem to do small loads when I know that I can fit so much more in there. tee hee :)

I spent most of yesterday catching up on all the piles of laundry (boy the kids wear a LOT of clothes, not to mention socks & undies). I finished a load this morning and look who decided they like the pretty pink pile of clothes! {yep I do a separate load of just pinks because that's how many pink clothes the girls have! LOL}

She definitely likes her bed to be fluffy & soft! hahaha

We finally got Nathaniel his Webelos neckerchief and a ribbon on his shoulder to hold all his pins. So, I took these pictures this week because I think he looks so handsome (ok he's the CUTEST little scout isn't he? I guess he isn't so little anymore).

In case you didn't already know, when Nathaniel gets his homework done, he LOVES to hog play the XBOX360. The girls have to beg just to get their own time. They finally got a few minutes to play before bed last night and they chose Rock Band2 of course. Felicia's rockin' out on the drums and Ashley was singing! Oh yah, they have Eye of the Tiger memorized {or at least it sounds that way}! haha
Geesh, I just noticed they are both wearing their ROCKER (torn knees) jeans! LOL

I am still having a hard time grasping the fact that Anson will start school (Kindergarten) in August. Then 2 weeks later he will turn 5, just before the Sept 1st cut-off date. He will be a young one. But he is SO EXCITED to go to school like the big kids! Everytime I try to work with him or help learn how to write, he has no interest. {All my other kids were like that too, then suddenly one day they just got it all on their own} It's so frustrating. Anyway, we were playing with his magna-doodle this week and look what he was able to do:

WOOOHOOOO!!!! I showed him how and talked about the letters in his name and POOF, he wrote his own name!! GOOD JOB Anson!!! Look at his proud smile :)

I love your posting bonuses and you new kit! Don't you just love it when the fur babies get on the clean clothes, my dogs usually wait til they are folded then jump on them and mess them all up to make a comfy bed.
