I know it's been a while since I've posted. Certain family members were inquiring if I'd fallen off the face of the planet because there were no updated posts this week. I know, both of my kids are in school full time now, but this girl is BIZ-ZAY!! And I'll tell you why. Because both of my kids' social calendars are fuller than mine ever was, is, and probably ever will be. And for some reason I got a wild hair up my butt and volunteered to be room-mom for both kids' classrooms thinking neither of the teachers would pick me, and guess what? Well, I guess I don't have to tell you what!! Yeah, both kids' classes. Me, room mom. I LOVE IT!
Jackson joined Cub Scouts. I'm all about scouting. I was a Brownie and a Girl Scout. And Jackson is super-excited about this so that makes us excited. We went to the informational meeting last Monday night and they had him at "you get to shoot b.b. guns and go camping-A LOT." And there is A LOT of camping. A LOT. But it's family camping. Which means Ray and RJ are in. And that makes this mama happy because while I'm not a fan of dirt and critters, if my peeps are with me I'm good.

We had a little birthday party for RJ yesterday. Little. Five neighborhood kids, lots of swimming, some hot dogs and a cake. No bouncy castle, no pinata, no games, not even goody bags. And you know what? They had a blast and the party ended up lasting almost 5 hours! Probably spent $20 on food, I made the cake, and we tossed some candy in their hands on the way out the door. They all walked home, our kids went to bed and Mommy and Daddy cracked open the wine. :) Now that's how you do a party!

Matt has been in scouts since he could and loved it and he is not a nerd. We do the fun things and a lot of family stuff cheap!
And if they stay to Eagle Scout that is great on college resumes and even getting a good job!

Of course he's not a nerd. I don't know why I think that. Maybe it's the uniform. They're a little over the top.
