Oh my, oh my--what a HUGE mess I have had in my house. We got the new office set Thursday, and I have spent the last 4 days trying to clear the path!! I finally got pictures up on the wall last night, and the top of the desk mostly cleared out tonight--so now I have time to blog. I don't have pictures taken yet, but plan to do that tomorrow. I am IN LOVE. There is now a ton of room for me to clutter up with papers, mail, and "to-do" junk. One more list of organizational tools to purchase from my friendly Walmart store, and then we'll be set. Just let them TRY to lose something here!!
Here is a quick back track to last Thursday night when the boys performed at the county 4-H day.
T did an illustrated talk on hunter safety. He has really been struggling with school the last few weeks, so for him to have nearly memorized his talk was a big feat!! This mama was pretty proud of him. He was a little nervous, but was able to look up at the judge this year and talk TO her. I could tell that he was having to improvise on the words at times, which was great to watch him think on his feet. He got top blue and will get to go on to regionals in March.
This is the first year that either of the boys has taken a talk to the regional contest. I am probably much more excited than they are! The experience is great for them, though they would argue right now--I hope they will see the benefit later!!
We will look forward to going in March--regionals are only 40 minutes away instead of 2 hours as it has been the last few years! Not sure if I mentioned it earlier, but we are also looking forward to going to the Wichita garden show in March as part of the photography judging class. They will have a number of seminars for the kids, and then will have some time after it closes to shoot pictures without the public viewers. One of my favorite spring kick off activities is a few hours roaming around in Century Two checking out the gardens. I am pretty pumped to be able to watch the kids see how incredible the whole thing is. Lots of exciting things coming up in the near future! Check back in a few days to see the office makeover!!
