Give Me a Break!

She lives!  She breathes!  She blogs!

Here’s a quick update about what’s been going on here…

Belt Buckle and BabyAm had semester finals…so we had quite a few CRAM sessions, that lasted into the nights.

Thankfully, they each only have one more set of finals to take this year, and we have about 3 1/2 months before that happens again.  

Then comes BabyAm’s SAT test.   We had put it off 3 times for different reasons…but this time she finally made it.   She does feel like she did pretty good.   She said the tests were very simillar to the practice tests in her Study Book, which is nice.

We also have been having fun planning a trip for me and my my friend “KK”* (who’s daughter (GI Jane*) is in Boot Camp) to go to South Carolina to watch her graduate the middle of February!   We have re-arranged our trip a little, so that we can fly into Atlanta, and drive to SC…so we can see the area!   Then spend family day and Graduation day there, and then drive back to Atlanta where we can see some sights for 2 days before flying home!   One of the sites we want to see is the Georgia Aquarium!  What a blast!   So, the planning of this has been taking all my time at the computer, if you can imagine.  (Let me know if you’re a reader from Atlanta…or have been there and think there is somewhere we should see while there)

We also just recently found out that The Dark Knight wants to come back for his ENTIRE spring break!   Too cool for us!!!!  We are all very excited!  He is bringing his girlfriend (****) with him, which will be nice.  We are excited to meet her.  Freckles will also be here for 1/2 of his spring break, its the same week.   Sadly their spring breaks fall the week AFTER BabyAm and Belt Buckles break…but that’s ok, it’ll give them some time to sight see, etc.

This weekend, after making all the flight arrangements for the kids to come, we decided that we needed to figure out sleeping arrangements!   We have two bedrooms upstairs  (BabyAms and a Spare room) with a Jack/Jill bathroom between them.   A bathroom in the hallway and a bonus room.  So we…did some re-arranging!   We bought a day bed, with a trundle and sheet/comforer sets that match the spare room.   We put them in the Bonus Room.   Now we have room for all 4 kids!   BabyAm will stay in her room (since she has school), The Dark Knight and Freckles will stay in the newly renovated (and super cool) bonus room that looks like a hotel room…and **** (we will get her a nick-name asap!) will stay in the spare room, and have some extra privacy.   We are so excited!

I also am in the process of making arrangements to have family pictures taken.  This will be the first time we will have all 3 kids in the same place at the same time to be able to have professional photos taken.   They’ve been together before about 6 years ago, but we weren’t able to get professional family pics then.  So this is going to be a great visit!

That’s all the time I have for now…but I should be posting some more pictures up soon! 

*KK is how she will be referred to from here on out.  🙂  KK and I went to High School together and are really two peas in a pod.   Like Thelma and Louise, only without driving off the cliff at the end!

*GI Jane – KK’s beautiful daughter, and BabyAm’s unbiological twin sister!  LOL  I swear to you, they are so much alike it’s scary!
