Karate Testing

Well, all my ninjas tested this past Friday and were promoted to the next belt. One more year and Bert and Tyler will be black belt, and a year and a half for Micah and EG.  EG was presented w/ a trophy at this last testing for having the best spirit. She was so proud. I am so proud of all of them. They work so hard and it is a big commitment and a lot of hard work.  We are trying to talk Sophie into starting but she says she is not big enough..she says maybe when she is 4! lol.

Ok- so Bert bought me an I Mac a couple weeks is the BOMB!! I love it! I was playing around on it last night and I realized I can actually play around w/ my pics. I have always wanted Adobe photoshop but didnt want to fork over the cash so this might appease me for a while and then I can ask for photoshop for Christmas. WHICH speaking of Christmas my son Micah reminded me this morning that Christmas is only 4 mos and 4 days from today! Uhhh didnt we just start 2008 and now it is almost over!!!

EG turns 9

Wow...where did our summer go???? COME BACK!   We started back homeschooling on the 11th so we are now in our second week of school. So far so good. We are finishing in about 3-4 hours each day. I know that will increase as the year progresses but I am enjoying these "short" days.    
We finished up the summer w/ EG turning 9. I still cant believe she is 9.  She is turning into such a precious young lady. She loves the Lord so much and it is so neat to see her developing her own walk w/ God. She has an awesome sense of humor and great laugh..she keeps us in stitches!  We started off her birthday by picking up some of her friends and going to CHUCK E CHEESE...I soo love how Rick and Bubba call it Chuck E Cheese hell! lol. It was absolute chaos in there and I was alone w/ all 6 girls.(another medal for mom). Then we headed home to swim and have cake and ice cream.   The next day EG left for Grandma and Grandpas for a week! She had a great time there and of course did not want to come home.
