Goal Chart

So we started a Goal Chart with Isabelle about two weeks ago. We wanted her to start doing things on her own without us having to ask her. Things like cleaning her room, brushing her teeth, helping mom when asked, etc. The goal was to get 10 stickers and then Isabelle could go to the store and pick something out that she really wanted. With in reason of course. About a week ago she found these Hello Kitty shoes and she just had to have them. I told her we could get them today and then when she had 10 stickers I would give her the shoes. So it took about week, but she got her prize. Isabelle has been so great about picking up her room without wining and wanting to do it. Helping when I ask and asking to help me with laundry. It is a big improvement! I'm very proud at how my little girl is turning out. Here is a picture of the new shoes!

Our Week

Our week did not start out great. On Monday I woke up with what I thought was pink eye. Go to the eye doctor and he says no you have a cold in your eye. I said what? A cold in my eye sounded crazy. Isabelle said it looked disguising! Thanks honey. So got so drops and that afternoon felt awful. Woke up the next morning feeling like a new woman.

So on Tuesday everything had been fine all day around 7:00pm Isabelle has a temperature of 103 and a rash on her neck and upper torso. We are like oh my goodness what is going on with our daughter. So we head to the ER. The doctor checks her out and say she has tonsillitis. My first thought is surgery, but no. You always think the worse. They give her a shot of antibiotics in the bottom. That was awful. If looks could kill the nurse that gave her the shot wouldn't be here now. She got a cute band-aid on her bottom and shows it to everyone. So Isabelle is feeling much better! Praise God!

On Wednesday night we notice that our older dogs eye is matted and a pus in it. Are you kidding me! So now she is at the vet to find out what is going on with her. We pray for the best.

Today has been a nice relaxing day. Isabelle stayed home from school today. Even though she wanted to go I thought she needed the rest. We went to the park and played. We did sidewalk chalk and swung. Hasten got to feel the grass for the first time and tried to eat some. It was a great day in the words of Isabelle.

Girls Night Out!!

A much anticipated girls night out. We have all been trying to get together since January and it finally happened in March. This is girls that I grew up with in the little town of Konawa. We met at The Melting Pot. If you haven't been there you must go! It is amazing. The perfect place to visit, because it is a 4 course meal. With dessert being the best! Anyway, it was such a good visit we laughed, cried and everything in between. I love all these girls and I can't believe here we are in our thirty's with kids! It just doesn't seem possible. I highly recommend getting together with old friends it is very therapeutic.

However after an evening of eating all that food I had to go to Spin class the next morning. I am totally addicted to spinning. I love it and you can burn 600 calories in one class.

Isabelle is in love with a new channel she has just discovered. It is called Boomerang! They show old cartoons that I grew up with. Like the Smurfs, Snorks, Scooby Doo, and the Flintstones. It is really funny to watch these cartoons now. They have absolutely no educational value, but Isabelle enjoys watching them. We hope this phase ends soon!

Does anyone else remember the Snorks? Jason says he doesn't remember watching them. This coming from the guy who has never seen Goonies!!

Good News

Went to the doctor yesterday and Hasten received a clean bill of health. No more Flu or RSV. Amen!!! No life can get back to normal. As if! What is normal with kids? Another tid bit of good news. Today we got a letter from Nichols Hills Elementary and Isabelle got in! We are so excited! Now that means I have to get her some uniforms. How cute will that be? Too cute!! I can't believe my baby girl is going to start kindergarten next year. It doesn't seem real to me. I remember hearing my Granny say "Time goes by so fast" and thinking no it doesn't. Now I realize what she meant. You blink and a year has gone by so fast. This picture seem like yesterday.

Our day at the Park

Saturday was a beautiful day, so we decided to take advantage of it. We took the kids to the park to play. We had tons of fun just getting to hang out as a family.
