Brooklyn's first field trip

Brooklyn had her first field trip on the 15th.  She got to ride the bus and loved every minute of it!  She wants to ride the bus in kindergarten.   I'm thinking car pool.  They went to the Walker post office and sang carols and mailed themselves Christmas cards.  They loaded up and went to a really nice retirement home and sang them the same three carols.  All of the children were very well behaved which was kind of a shocker because their was about 55, 3 to 5 year olds.  I have to admit I am really excited for the next field trip.  They are going to go to the strawberry patch!  I will be chaperoning that one too!

Mad enough to cry

Seriously last night I was mad enough to cry.  Wednesday afternoon around 2 I was asked by a frantic person to help with this thing THURSDAY night.  O.k. person calm down, what do y'all have, what do you  need?  I was asked to make baked beans, a cake, and some vases as thank yous.  I also said I can help but my kids will be with me.  The person said that was fine.  Easy peasy right?  So I come home with Brooklyn STILL not feeling well and get to work.  I baked and brown hamburger and etch glass not getting any kind of break from my already busy Wednesday.  Thursday I make frosting, finish cake, decide to make a pie and some cookies too.  When I go to Brooklyn's school to pick her  up her teacher tells me that shes not feeling good and during recess she LAID DOWN ON THE GROUND AND FELL ASLEEP. Um, why did no one CALL ME!  She hasn't been feeling well off and on since Saturday night.  I called her Dr, who wasn't in so we had to see a different dr.  It's 2, I get an appointment for 2:20.  After a short wait we see the Dr.  She had a 103 fever (and weighs 50lbs)!  Diagnosis is a sever throat infection.  Yay for antibiotics.  We then run to Wal-mart to get that filled, we are home by 4.  By 5:15 we are leaving to go to the thing I said I would help with, food and sick kid (and a healthy one) in tow.  I drive 30 minutes to get to this thing (did I mention Trent was supposed to be going to it too, it was a mens thing).  Get there, unload, start to settle in.  Someone comes to me and tells me when it starts I will have to make other arrangements for the kids because they have been telling the MEN they can't bring kids!  WTF.  I just busted my butt to get all this ready and be up here on time.  Oh by the way can you leave your camera?  Yeah sure but don't touch it till Trent gets there.  We don't like people using our camera really.  Trent can't find the place and is mad about that so he is saying he is just going to come home.  He finds it, goes in and instead of staying gets our camera, signs in and leaves.  He's home by 7:30.  I was so mad last night that, maybe because of very little sleep every night, I could have cried anytime I thought about it.  I am okay with it now.  I get wanting to be fair to everyone.  If they had said no kids I would have said no I can't help and would not have spent almost $40 bucks between supplies and gas!  It was just really frustrating for me and Trent both.   Lesson learned.

So far behind

I'm way past on blogging.  I have been super busy with the church Christmas projects.  Now that the r.s. party is over and went very very well, I can focus on the church party!  The r.s. one was the 3rd.  I didn't take any pictures and the ward one is on the 10th.  It's weird this year because there is no official committee I have not been able to get people to help.  A little frustrating but I think it will be nice all the same.  And a big thank you to all the people who are helping! On top of everything Brooklyn was really sick this past Saturday night and now Sophia won't sleep!  I am one tired momma.  Not to tired to go see my GREAT NIECE today!  She was born yesterday and with Brooklyn not feeling well we stayed home.  Boo!  See you soon Emery!
