It has been a month!!

...since I last posted.  How did that happen?  I don't know. We had a great holiday and attended lots of fun birthday parties for friends in December.  The weeks just flew by. January has gotten off to a good start.  Paige has a new teacher.  Scott pointed out that since she was two she has had some change of teacher during the year.  Her teacher got a job teaching first grade in our county, so she left and now Paige has Ms. Janice, a former second grade teacher.  She seems to be transitioning well but has already written a card to Ms. Laura and didn't want to go to school yesterday for the first time all year.  I'll cross my fingers that it was just a lack of sleep.  She said she was sleepy and her feet hurt, but when I told her that Jackie, her best friend, was coming home with her she luckily changed her mind.

Tate jumped right back in after two weeks off from school.  We are in the swings of multiplication, area, and perimeter.  She is doing well...even got a 4 (equal to an A in the old days) in Social Studies.  She got a 4 in Art first quarter.  I signed her up for soccer last week.  It will start at the end of February.

For me, the new year brings a rush to get ready for our trip to Disney.  We leave next Friday.  Last year when we went I was so prepared.  Months ahead of time I had dinners planned and knew which parks we would visit on which day.  Only last week did I order the tickets to Disney and Sea World.  We made the hotel reservation for Jacksonville yesterday and in the last week I have gotten the dog kenneled and someone to watch the cat.  Now I need to get a fish feeder for the week so Holly won't have to do that too.  Paige got two fish for Christmas. Now I am excited.  I can't wait to go to Sea World. I hear it has changed a lot.  The doctor told me I could ride more rides than I expected.  I'm not going to do anything crazy, but I did hope to ride the Barnstormer with the kids and the Soarin' ride at Epcot.  The last thing on my to do list is to see if I can get a Princess lunch at Epcot.  I hear that is great and it will hopefully be our one character meal for this trip.

When we get back, we'll just have a few weeks before we find out what baby #3 will be.  I can't wait!
