Our afternoon was hectic but fun. The kids played with Kaleb and Katrina and I baked muffins and bread for church. We whipped it out like pros. It was a batter, after batter, after batter. The kitchen was full. It was nice to have some help getting it done much faster. We managed to get a couple of weeks worth made, wrapped up and in the freezer. YEAH!! Thanks Katrina, you were a HUGE help!!! Not to mention, you came up with an excellent time saving idea. LOL
Today, the kids and I got up and took off for a morning stroll. I'm kind of on a mission to loose a certain amount of weight between now and my birthday next month. I can't beleive I'm voicing this on my blog because that means I really have to succeed or EVERYONE will know. LOL. On a more serious note, I typically am not up for much exercise. I can watch what I eat and loose weight IF I stick to it. But this time is a little different. I read something yesterday that really spoke to me. It made me realize that I HAD to do it. There was no excuse and no reason NOT to. Yes, I know that isn't much time for big goals, but I know that with some major work and a lot of prayer, I CAN & WILL do it!! I'll keep ya posted!

This is the two of them "cheesing" outside the door. They were so excited!!!!! Maddie went right in to her class with no problem. We left her and went to take Ashton (so we could stop back by and check on her). Ashton took all his stuff in his room, put it up in his cubby and went straight to playing with the "boys" like he was a pro. It was cute!
I stopped back by Maddie's room and she was sitting up at the table with a couple of boys playing with some little animals. I was excited. So far, no tears!!! I left and went to do a few things and called to check on her about 10:30-11:00 and they said she was doing great! Yeah!!!
Well, at 2:30 when I went to pick them up. Maddie was resting on her mat; another HUGE shock. She had actually taken a nap!! WOW! She is shocking me left and right. Miss Donneita said that she had done wonderful, not cried a bit, and took a great nap. I'm so excited!!!! Ashton and Maddie both had AWESOME FIRST DAYS at school!!!!!

Today was also the start of a new teaching series called DNA. Every week, our pastor, Erik, does an incredible job of delivering the message. Today was NO different!!! He has a way of grabbing hold and pulling you in each and every week. So much so, you can't wait to go back the next week. It's awesome!!! Great job as usual Erik!!!!

This is Ashton & Maddie before church on Sunday morning. Maddie looked so adorable in her new dress and "ponies". And Ashton has become a camera hog wanting his picture taken everytime you bring the camera out. LOL
So far this week, we have all had our teeth cleaned. It was Ashton's second time to the dentist, but Maddie's first. She did a great job and they both got rave reviews on their dental hygiene! YEAH Mommy & Daddy! That means we're doing something right!! We also went to preschool and met Ashton and Maddie's new teachers for this year. Ashton is going to have Miss Betty and she seems super sweet. He seemed to be pretty happy with her too. He stayed in her class and played while we went to meet Maddie's teacher, Miss Donita. She was wonderful too. I think this is going to be a great year for them both!!
