kids are so fun!!!

As always, we had an incredibly busy week!! Jackson placed 13 in All Conference for Cross Country at Fort Zumwalt West High. What would we do with out those great lookin' legs.
Courtney and Amber both played well at their Soccer games this week. Judge scored 2 goals on Saturday.
Some highlights from Judge:

Judge: Mom-why did Heavenly Father make Bees?
Me: I don't know- they make honey or something as I was working on homework.
Judge: But they are mean and they bite people. Good point!!!

Judge: How do clams eat if they don't have a body?
Me: Good point.

Judge: Mom-why did Heavenly Father make mosquitos?
Me: I don't even know. Man what a deep thinker.

Jackson and I also had the opportunity to go to the St Louis Art Museum and Barcelona Cafe for dinner. We both needed to attend these places for assignments for school. How fun to spend a day working on homework with your son!!! Jackson had to practice his Spanish speaking abilities on the waiter. He did a pretty good job I must say. Our good friends took the other kids for a fun play date while we went. I wasn't really interested in chasing Judge around a musuem. How lucky we are to have such great friends!!!

I can't believe I'm doing this!!

I have decided to join the blog community. It will be fun to keep in touch with family and friends that are so dear to us yet so far away.
