Catching Up in Pictures

Wow! Back to school has me so busy. I hardly have time to post anymore. So, I have a lot of catching up to do.

Audrey started PreK. Don't call it preschool, or she'll correct you. She loves her new teachers, her new room, and her new class has three toads named after the Jonas brothers. She told me last week they were looking for another toad to name Frankie?!? Sometimes I just don't ask. Last week, she was the weather girl in her class. She made us watch the weather channel in the evenings, so she would know what to tell her class. That channel is extremely boring, but I was all smiles at my budding researcher. There was also a lot of fog that week, so the whole class talked about what fog was.

Mallory moved up to the older toddler class. She has buddied up with a little girl and they cause all sorts of havoc. Last week, I picked her up the teacher said, "If you are wondering why her hands are purple, it's because she kept putting them in the stamp pads." Yesterday it was, "I was just changing another friend's diaper when Mallory and (aforementioned buddy) decided to get the paint out. That's why she's in new clothes. Sorry!" Mallory Kathleen!!! I have no idea where she learned to get paint out on her own. None of you readers have seen the pictures from Audrey's paint exploration days, right?? That's a whole blog post in itself. Oh well, thank
goddness our money allows them to paint at school and not at home, so these mishaps are not on our watch or our carpet/furniture/walls.

Moving on... Audrey is playing soccer.

She's still adjusting to the terms "out-of-bounds", "goal kick", and "We're going THAT WAY!" But she sure looks cute in her Eastwood Eagles uniform.

An appropriate caption for the next picture could be "Go Eagles", but since all the teams are Eagles, hmmm, the caption just doesn't fit. "Go Coach Jay and Coach Lee's Team"!

Mommy and Daddy got to go on a getaway without the kiddos. We went to one of
our favorite destinations, the Horseshoe in Columbus, Ohio.
We watched The Best Damn Band In The Land enter the stadium.

And everyone's favorite, Brutus the Buckeye.

We waited in large masses to enter the stadium. I thought we were going to miss
my favorite part, but alas, we found our seats in time for Script Ohio.

The fans were crazy, and spirit was high, and the momentum was in our favor for most of the game. They did lose in the last two minutes of the game, but I don't think I'll attend another game as exciting as that one was. Even JJ said the crowd was more pumped than any Ohio State/Michigan game he has been to. I really enjoyed every minute and look forward to going again. Maybe this season?!?

One more thing, Miss Mallory is sleeping in a Big Girl Bed now! She's very excited about it, until bedtime. She does not like to slow down, or quit playing when it's time for lights out. Same as her sister. Monkey see, monkey do. And speaking of monkeys...

we have the cutest ones in the whole jungle!

Don't you agree?
