Random Ramblings


One of the projects we are currently in the middle of is painting the entire inside of our house and we started out in Luke's room.  Several months back he asked to put any and everything Texas Rangers all over his walls.  So, after we painted, the Ranger paraphernalia went up.



Luke's jaw hit the floor when he saw the Nolan Ryan picture.  Luke is a FAN of Nolan.  His Nolan impression is the absolute best.  We still have a few things to get up on the walls, but once it is all done I will post pictures of the Texas Rangers Fan Room.


And speaking of the Rangers, my boys are starting to gear up for the post season.  Tickets have been purchased and the post season talk has started.  These two are READY for a World Series win with their beloved Texas Rangers.  I hope it happens for them. 




 Second grade is proving to the be the coolest grade yet.


Every single day Luke has the best news to report about school.  He is very excited about music class and he reported that soon they will learn to play the flute (I think he is probably referring to the recorder).  I can hardly wait for that!  Seriously, I might be crazy, but just the thought of listening and watching him practice makes me laugh.  

His best buddy is in his class, which is fantastic.  And also in their class is the girl they dislike the most.  Listening to these two talk about her is funny.  She has been "ruining" their lives for years.  Just about the only bad thing Luke has reported about second grade is that this girl sits right in front of him.  As he was telling me this, I could not help but laugh and then I said, "It is going to be so funny when you grow up and marry her."  

"NOT FUNNY MOM!!!"

It was funny and I continued to laugh.  She is the cutest thing and is always so nice to me.  Luke and his best buddy both say it is all an act and she just wants the grown ups to think she is nice.



 This ice cream caused a fight between my Joshua and me.


I sent him to the store for ice cream and he came back with this and I was not happy.  I wanted some sort of adult flavor...like blackberry or something....and he comes back with this kid flavor, picked out by a seven year old kid.  ugh.  Then I had some and fell in love.  Now I am even more mad at him because I cannot stop eating it.  He and that ice cream are ruining MY life.....



I think this is one of my all time favorite pictures.  EVER.  






My Luke has always been into books.  The boy reads and reads and reads.  Last Friday, he started to read the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid book for the second time.  We watched the first two Diary of a Wimpy Kids movies over the weekend and then last Monday, we went to the theater and watched the third movie.  It was hilarious.


He finished the first Wimpy Kid book in two days and so we bought the second one last Monday after the movie.  He will finish it up today and so after school we will be off to buy the third.  He was sure to let me know he could have finished the second one much faster if his teacher did not require him to read other books.  He is on a mission to read all seven books as soon as he can. 



And if two grown men ever offer to fix you dinner, you let them.  If it is the first Dallas Cowboy game of the season, you will get football food, but that is okay.  The main thing to focus on is the fact that you are laying on the couch and they are in the kitchen and outside at the grill. 


That white cheese dip was the best.  Thanks to Josh and his BFF for making dinner the other night.
