A little bit of this, a little bit of that

Today will be a mish mash of stuff :)

*I am so proud of Chase. Last week I got a call from the asst principal, saying he had Chase with him in his office. "This is a good thing" he cheered. He said they like to call parents when positive things happen! Chase was recognized by his lang arts teacher for being caring, compassionate, and helpful to ohter kids in the class. This earned him a special prize and the cance to win even more prizes. I am proud beyond words at my son. He is amazing me everyday with the way he has handled this move and adapted to new friends, school, etc. Our friends back in StLouis will never be topped, but it warms my hear to know that he is making the transition so well.

*Brooke is becoming quite the little swimmer! It really helps to have our own pool. She wears a mask and wont go ALL the way under yet, but she puts her whole face in and swims all over the pool!!! finally!!

*Mike and I bought some new bikes to get in shape. The area around here just screams for you to ride your bike around, so even though money is tight, we felt it was a wise investmet in our health!

*I broke my toe about a week and a half ago and it is still sore!!

*Mike and I are still looking for that perfect job!!

*We feel like we are working full time, by looking at the computer for jobs alllll day.

*Chase went to a friends house last night and they took part in a dodge ball tournement with over 500 kids at one of the local churches, they made it to the semi-finals. His team consisted of new friends from school - all of them are new to the area, so they called themselves the "new kids on the block". Chase also had his first sleepover here in florida.

*My biggest prayer has been answered...Chase finding new friends easily here!

*Brooke is getting sooo excited for her birthday next week!

*our next door neighbors are wonderful, Christians!

*Dewey needs a haircut!! Oh, yeah, and he DOESN"T like to swim!

*I am trying to keep from stress getting the best of me, but I have been getting headaches the past few days! So, I finally went to a chiro. I also went for some xrays to help with treatment. I will NEVER find as great of a chiro as I had in St louis :(

*Florida has LOVE BUGS, that are numerous right now and fly around mating..ew..

*The BIGGEST news.....I am weaing off of diet soda!!!! I have been drinking a ton of water and have only had 2 mini diet pepsi sodas today. Those of you who know my addiction, know that this is great for me! Also another reason I have a continuous headache!!

*I am gonna go and try out that new bike of mine!

*Have a great weekend everyone!! I miss all of my friends and family so much!!!!
