Ryann brought home her first report card on Monday. And, of course, she's doing extremely well!!! She's excelling in EVERYTHING! I'm so very proud of her. I tried to scan a copy of her report card to post it, but haven't been successful yet.

ALSO, Ryann has learned how to tie her shoes!!!!!!!!!! This is HUGE!!! I mean, this is one of the milestones in life! Right up there with learning how to spell her own name and learning how to drive!!! And what's even more amazing is that we haven't even really worked on it very much.......she just picked it up so fast!!!

Those are the two biggest things so far this week for Ryann. I'll let you all know if she starts multiplying large numbers or reciting Shakespeare!! LOL!!

Kamri Jaycee turned 4 years old on Tuesday, October 16th!!! She and I celebrated by going to one of her fav places on the planet...Chuck E Cheese!!!! It was just the two of us because we're having her party this Saturday afternoon. I snapped a few pics of her while we were at can see the rest of them through the link to our photos. I'll take lots more pics at her party and get them posted asap.

October 2007

This month is going to be a very busy month for us. We have several birthdays in October including Miss Kamri Jay who will be turning 4 !!!!! My baby girls are growing up so fast. We'll be having a party for her on the 20th of this month. On the 13th we'll be going to my sister's 21st birthday party and on the 8th my family is having a joint birthday party for Brittany, Kamri, and Thomas (my brother-in-law).

Along with all of the birthday parties, we'll be planning for Halloween and of course, starting to look ahead to the Thanksgiving/Christmas holidays. It's all going to be here SO fast!!! Before we know it we'll be ringing in a new year.

I'll also be starting a new job this week and of course with that comes a little bit of stress. However, I'm positive that it'll be less stress than I've been under with my CURRENT job. Everyone wish me luck with that endeavor.

Ryann's teacher came in to the restaurant last night to have dinner with her husband and I got an update on how's she doing. Mrs. West is still very impressed with her and comments frequently on how smart she is. The only problem that Ryann has in school (and may continue to have) is that she has to have everything perfect. Mrs. West said that she really enjoys doing her assignments, unlike most of the other kids in her class, and is always very eager to please by doing everything right. This does not surprise me at all. Ryann has always been a bit of a perfectionist. I only hope that she's eventually able to learn that she doesn't have to be perfect all of the time. Otherwise, she's going to have a life of disappointment.

Kamri started back to school this week as well. She's very very excited. She's enrolled at Kickin' Kids......the same school she was in this time last year. They called me to let me know that they finally had an opening for her class and of course I jumped on it!!! At this school she gets to go through pre-k curriculum, participate in gymnastics, and spend time with lots of other kids her age!! She loves it and I'm terribly happy that she's happy!!!

I think that's about it for now. Ryann's with her dad this weekend and I've been doing some cleaning this morning. Kamri and I also decorated the house with a few Halloween decorations. I'm excited for the time I can take them down and then soon after put up our Christmas tree and all of the other decorations we have for Christmas!!!!!

Hope everyone's weekend is fun!!!
