1st day at Kindergarten

Anna had her first day of school yesterday. I was a bit worried that she would get upset when I started to leave her but she did great! She walked into the room and started pointing out books that she liked and she found her cubby right away. I did okay and didn't cry... until I got into the car. Of course I took some pictures...

When I picked her up she was all smiles. She had a really good day. What was her favorite part? Eating in the cafeteria. She liked making the food choices and she said the food was "Yummy!".

How many of you have heard of this workout craze? About 3 weeks ago our family joined the YMCA (again). I started out just using the treadmills and bikes thinking that there was no way I would be able to keep up in an aerobics class. But then....I discovered ZUMBA! This is the most fun I have ever had working out. It is low impact aerobics with a latin twist. The music is upbeat and motivational and you just find yourself shakin' your groove and having a blast! You can read more about it at and if you want to go to the Hendersonville Y with me and try it out just let me know!

Kindergarten here I come!

Today we visited Anna's new school for orientation. She got to meet her new teacher and even got to meet some other little girls that will be in class with her. Her kindergarten class room was amazing with lots of bright colors and letters, numbers, and words everywhere. She had fun exploring in the class and we also found the cafeteria, library, and the gym. For the next 2 weeks she will go only on Tuesdays for half a day (this is part of our county's phase in program) and then after that she will go everyday. She's all signed up and ready to go!

Another trip to Georgia

A few weeks ago, Ron had a business trip so I loaded up the kids and off to Georgia we went. My sis (Anita) and I got to spend time doing "girl stuff". We started it off with a manicure and pedicure together -no kids allowed. The next day we spent the day doing our 2 favorite things... yard sale shopping and scrap booking. After that, we loaded the kids up for a day and the lake but it rained us out so we just skipped that. But, the next day was beautiful so off we went Pool's Mill Park. There is an old covered bridge with small waterfalls. The kids really liked it but Anita and I were nervous someone was going to slip and get hurt. Anyway, we did enjoy a picnic together. That night we went to Stone Mountain Park to check out the spectacular Laser and Fireworks show. It did not disappoint. Lots of fun for everyone!
