Sickly Wednesday

I can't believe it's Wednesday, somehow I missed a day and have swore up and down all day it was Tuesday. I really hate when this happens. So now I feel like I'm behind on everything. Spent most of the day getting ready for our Daisies Investiture ceremony which is Friday night. I'm so excited for Keree and the other girls. As for the sick, I'm still feeling like crap from this cough and then today my Mom decided to start puking her guts out. Of course, I had to join her with the puking right before bed. As for Keree, after school, we spent the late afternoon/evening together since my Mom was asleep. We had a nice dinner of veggie lasagna and salad. Of course, Keree stole all the olives off my salad. We read a few books and then rotted our brain with tv. Keree headed to bed early, which I'm hoping she's just tired and not getting sick like the rest of us. Praying we will be at least 80% by Friday.

First Irish Step Class

This week in Keree's class, they are still learning about Rainforest and now Jungles. She said she loved her explorer hat. 
Today was also Keree's first Irish step dance class. They had suggested to help build up her strength that we get her into a controled activity. They gave us a list of and we choose Irish step dance. My thought is to get through the first 6 weeks and then choose if she will continue or not. But by the end of class, Keree kept gushing about how much fun she had and how well she did. She tried ballet and tap along time ago and it was an utter failure, so I'm so glad she feels good about this. (Keree's the shortest one, has black hair in a ponytail and dressed in purple)

Save the Rainforest

They are learning about the rainforests in school. Each child had to make their own Save the Rainforest posters. Keree was so proud of hers, she drew a tent because she wants to go camping in the Rainforest.

Lazy Sunday

Keree woke up this morning before 5a. My Mom and I tried our best to convince her to go back to sleep but to no avail, she refused. Actually, to tell the truth she got down right nasty about us sleeping in because according to her she was starving to death. I told her if she really was that hungry to go and get a breakfast bar but instead she stomped around, screaming that she wanted a real breakfast. Needless to say this is far from typical behavior. Honestly, she is usually an angel, so I was torn on if I should punish her or not. Instead, I drug myself out of bed and I'm pretty sure there were some ugly words muttered under my breath. We opted out of going to church and headed to the grocery store because I was out of all decent breakfast or really any food. Keree was a dream basically from the time I got out of bed till she went to bed. After our shopping trip, we headed home, had a nice breakfast and then I went to work scanning. Since we are almost 99.9% for sure we will be in a new place before the school year, I don't want to be dragging along extra paper if all I have to do is make a digital copy. Keree spent her time playing on her DS. I have to say, I loathe her DS system. Most kids in her class don't even have one and I hate that I have to put limits on it. I hate that this is the first thing I threaten to take away if she's misbehaving. Maybe it's because it's was a gift from my Step-Mom? Maybe this stupid DS represents what a rocky relationship we are having with her and what is missing with my Dad being gone. So since I didn't want Keree playing the entire day on her DS, I didn't finish all that I wanted to get done. We spent the afternoon reading, talking and watching her just be goofy. I have to say, her air guitar skills have a long way to go. My Mom and Keree went to bed early. I have to say it's nice sometimes to have a few minutes to myself, to watch mindless tv, surf the web and actually write a post on this blog.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Of course, this morning we had to wake up a little late. Which of course, I planned on leaving the house by a certain time and we were almost 15 minutes late leaving. But I guess I should learn that I pad our arrival time by alot, so we aren't late. We ended up having enough time to grab some breakfast and still arrived almost 45 minutes early. Today our Daisy Scouts had a Ballet and You session, so they could earn their dance patch. There was only suppose to be maybe 20 girls and limited to 2 Adults per troop. Of course, as we have found out with our new, improved council that was not the case. There was almost 45 girls and I can't even tell you how many adults. Being of course a stickler for the rules, our 3 girls had 2 Adults and me and another Mom waited outside. We did get to go inside for a short time to watch the girls perform. They were so cute and listened so well. I
have to brag that the 3 girls who are very active in the troop are so well behaved. After they finished up their dance, we gathered the girls together and the Leader (aka my Mom) awarded them with their Girl Scout week patch. We then all gave our good-bye hugs and see ya soons before we headed home. By the time we got home, all the St. Patrick's day parades were over. I was a little
bummed out that we really couldn't celebrate and honestly with as sick as we have all been, we didn't even make green colored food. In the evening, we were suppose to go bowling with out adoption group but lately I have wanted to distance myself from the group. I feel bad about it but I got roped into helping out with the group and things just don't feel like they are meshing. It's like the group is split in two by those who are hard-core religious and then those of us who just want our kids to be around other adopted kids. So, luckily we got hit with a really nasty storm, plus we all still awful from this virus we all have. I used the excuse that the storm was just to bad to go out in and we still felt sick. So we spent the rest of our evening together. We finished reading Keree's six books for her book it list and then she helped me sew on her new patch. We all headed to bed early because none of us was feeling that well.
