Firm Foundation

We have a concrete slab! The concrete was poured Friday morning, and the framers will be here tomorrow (Monday). It will start looking like a real house!

Granny's birthday was today. So after Roundup Sunday, where my two men dressed like cowboys (we dress western on high attendance day round here). Then we went to Granny's for a great family visit, and back to church for our annual Hallelujah Halloween festival. Cole dressed as Spiderman this year and had a blast of course.

I go to the OB this week and I should get to hear the baby's heartbeat at least. I have a private sonogram at StorkVision in Tyler Nov. 8th to find out the sex of the baby, but I am sure my OB will order another one anyway.

More pics this week I promise, as the walls go up!

Raptors 5-0

Cole played two soccer games on Saturday. The first game at 10:30am was another easy win for the Raptors, with Cole scoring 2 1/2 goals. The 1/2 goal was because another boy on our team kicked at it the same time that Cole did, so we told the boys they both helped score. Otherwise we would have argued over who scored it. Boys.

The second game was a little tougher. Actually they were the best team we have played yet. It was very close, they were even ahead of us for a while, but in the end we scored one more than they did and we won again. That makes a 5 to 0 winning record. Way to go, Raptors!

The pics are of the new house site. The concrete forms were put up Thursday, and the plumber came in Friday and did the rough-in. He will be back tomorrow to finish up the rough-in for plumbing, and the concrete man should be back Thursday, with concrete being poured on Friday. All of this is pending any rain in the forecast this week of course. I will be glad when we get to the place where the weather won't matter so much.

Oh, there is also a pic of Cole playing with his new/old favorite toy in the world...dirt! He asks me every day, "Momma, can I go play in the dirt?" This is why we moved to the country!

There is also a pic of the jack-o-lantern that Daddy and Cole carved at our annual Sunday School party with the hayride. A good time was had by all who attended. I love that Cole is growing up with these kids and they will all know each other forever. All of their parents are kids who Wyatt grew up with.

I have another dr. appt Oct. 29th with the OB. Blood sugar is ok, still fluctuating somewhat, but I have adjusted my insulin when I need to like the dr. told me to.

November 8th is the BIG day when we will hopefully find out if we are having a boy or a girl. We are of course hoping for a girl, Lucy Kay Adair, but if it is a boy I'll figure out a name for him too. TTFN as Tigger says...ta ta for now.

The beginning

OK, so here is a pic of the home site. Pending rain tomorrow may put off the concrete forming up until Friday or Monday. We'll see.

Cole did not do as well at this last soccer game. Weekly practice was canceled because our Coach had a family emergency, and I guess Cole forgot what he was supposed to do. He mostly just ran around and skipped alot.

November 8th is the big day when we find out if we are having a boy or a girl. That day, our sonogram is at 10am and Cole has a soccer game at 12:30. Most of the family has been invited to attend both events. We are having the sonogram at StorkVision where they show it to you on a big screen tv with a huge wrap around couch for the family to sit on.

That's all for now. I am staying busy with two college midterms this week.

P.S. Cole is fascinated by the port-a-potty that was delivered Saturday. Kids!

We won again!

Well, Cole did much better in this Saturday's game (Oct. 4th). He engaged more in the game itself, and even scored 2 goals! He was so proud of himself. Our coach needed me to play assistant coach and sit with the team members who are not in the game, and when I was helping them with something, of course, is when Cole scored. I missed it both times! Oh well, I will try harder this weekend. He loves soccer so far though. Our coach made the comment that she didn't know why we were having practice, the kids seem to know what to do already. We don't just win, we have slaughtered both teams. We will see how it goes this Saturday.

WE ARE FINALLY CLOSING ON THIS #$%^&&*%$# HOUSE LOAN! Tomorrow, Thursday, at 4:30 it will be done. The concrete man is meeting us at the land tomorrow night to go over what is needed, and he said he can probably have it framed up by next week. So here we go! I will post some pictures this weekend, I promise!

I have had a book fair in my library all week this week and I am pooped! There has not been a Book Fair at my school in at least 5 years, and the kids have been really excited about it. The way it works is Scholastic, a book company, sends me all of the stuff and I sell it to the kids for a week. My library looks like a book store right now. Anyway, as long as we at least make $1500 for the week, I get 40% of the sales total in free books for my library. I was just hoping to make at least $1500, but we are already at $2200 as of today. It is crazy the money these kids have! So that puts me at about $1000 worth of free books so far, and I still have 2 days to go.
My mother-in-law, Patsy Adair, and her 3 sisters, Wanda Hood, Beth Bailey, and Bobbie Williamson, have all come and volunteered their time to work in the library this week. I couldn't have done it without them! I also had a couple of parents who helped out.

I will post again this weekend.
Love to all,
