So, I have decided that I am going to keep up with this blogging thing...even if this means typing with one hand while feeding Charlie with the other. Between reading my new Time issue and my new book from the library (The Best Advice I Ever Got), blogging has been on the back burner.
Charlie started eating rice cereal from a spoon last week! He took it like a champ!
Shane and I went out Saturday night to our usual watering hole. The new bartender (24 year old Ashley) did not know how to make the Bombay Saphire extra dirty martini with extra olives that I had been craving all week. This was our first sign we should have left. The second sign was when our bartender and all of her friends thought we were serious when Shane requested Miley Cirus It's a Party in the USA. Our laughter at least made them leave our side of the bar. After spending 80 bucks just to feel old and sad that OUR bar is now one step above Fred's in Tigerland we went home.
Tuesday, Jake's teacher and I had a conference which went awesome! Mrs. Burk said Jake is very artistic and she is excited to see what avenues he will take in the future. He needs to work on number recognition 7-10 and eventually up to 20. Besides that she said that he gets distracted by his sociable and artistic nature. LOVE IT!!
Last night was Jake's last soccer game of the season! It was so great. They won and all the kids got a trophy. Coach Edwin ordered pizza and brought cupcakes. Jake and his grandmother also brought cupcakes that Jake had helped decorate. I forgot my camera so another parent will be emailing the pictures of the party. Can't wait to put them up!
