I was passing a few extra minutes reading my friends' blogs and I realized I haven't even been to my own blog in such a long time. I have an announcement to make. I get to be a stay-at-home-mom starting this fall. I am thrilled! I have always wanted to be a SAHM. Some moms ask me why, even some of my friends who stay home. Well....the most important reason is that we can be a family. Stephen will be able to work 8-5 and be home at night for the first time in 3 years. He will be able to help me get the kids to scouts, sports, and dance. With Caleb starting Kindergarten and Lauren starting 2nd grade in the Fall, I can only imagine how much time will be spent on helping the kids with their reading and other homework. Maybe we can get outside and teach the kids how to ride their bikes. Another benefit of being home is that I can get more housework done. My friends always ask me how on earth I do "it". My answer is always the same, "my house is a wreck." So I, being the listmaker that I am, have a plan for geting my house in order and keeping it that way. Notice I didn't say PERFECT? I don't expect perfection. Just controlled chaos! I plan on finding time throughout the day to cook more meals instead of giving in and eating out. I hope to do more scrapbooking and I definitely want to have phone time to catch up with friends. The possibilities are endless! So with school coming to an end, our calendar is filling up fast. On top of the scouts, sports, and dance, we have field trips coming up plus The George Bush Library annual Easter Exstravaganza, Spencer's first birthday, Lauren's dance recital, Aubrei's graduation (our Mommy's Helper), and more.
A & M is filled with traditions, many of which most outsiders do not understand. We have a saying, "From the outside looking in, you can't understand it. From the inside looking out, you can't explain it." For more info on our wonderful traditions, go to http://aggietraditions.tamu.edu/
I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, Yee-Haw. I am a proud member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of '94. I have been blessed with a wonderful husband and 4 beautiful children plus 4 angel babies. We are members of the local Catholic church. Besides being with my family, I love cooking, baking, decorating cakes, and saving money!
