High School Musical.......

Sadly our girls are into High School Musical ... Sadly, I say, but secretly I say "YES".. for those of you that were in Show Choir ( and yes I capitalized it) you may appreciate it because it makes me re-live the days of show choir...It's the only thing I can get Nadya to sit still and watch.. she doesn't like cartoons... only musicals,(I've rented "South Pacific, and "Rent"...for her purposes ONLY of course) and live performance... She loves the "Singers" videos (not even in DVD.. VHS.. You old folk will know what I'm talking about..) Thank God for music and musicals!! God knew what He was doing when He made music a universal language... Or at least a means for my sanity......


So Bella read her first word this weekend... the word was ZOOM.. I asked her " how do you know that it is ZOOM".. She said "It looked like ZOO BUT HAS AN "m" on the end so that means it's ZOOM!!" Apparently she's been able to read longer than I've Known... I didn't even know she knew how to spell or read Zoo.. Although I did Know that she could spell the letter "B"... b-e-e is what she says, she can also spell the letter "c" s-e-e.... she wants to know how to spell every letter in the alphabet... ummmm I don't even know that... she's so smart!!

Well hello there!!
If you are reading this I'm so grateful that you were patient enough to wait on us!! Sorry it has been to long!! For me it was a great, stressful, emotional summer for me and so I was a little overwhelmed you could say and I tend to withdraw when I am feeling that way! So that's the long/short of it, Thank you for understanding!! SO!! A lot has happened since the last post.. not sure if I'll remember it all but I'll give you a briefing.
~Went to San Fran to visit Joel and Jeanne Norsworthy! First vacation together (Si and I) without the girls! It was sooo awesome and incredible!!
~moved into house (love the space!)
~Sister and her wonderful family came to visit for a few days (about a week after getting into the house) Oh how I miss them!
~both girls got strep within 2 week of moving into house!
~Nadya had her tonsils taken out about 2weeks after that (lets just say she was on antibiotics for about a month) That was really trying! Seeing my baby in so much pain for 2 weeks and not being able to do anything about it, plus the pain meds she was on made here REALLY crazy and mean!! (when she was in her crazy mode Simon would call her Anna Nicole Smith if that paints a better image for you) when she was mean she was mean, not looking forward to teenage yrs!
~ Si started a new job at Roche, the same day the girls started school! That was tough for me! Just the transition of having the girls all to myself, to them being in school. Trusting other people with them and trusting that I've done enough for them to be ok.. Our life is official revolved and scheduled around school!! They have an actual school sched. 9-2pm every day, and all the breaks that regular schools have. The girls go alternate days so I get to have one on one time with them and on Wednesday's they are both in school, so I get to have that time to myself!!
~ Went off my ADD meds, and off birth control.... that's been a hard adjustment for me! It was like I finally figured out "what was wrong with me" and it's almost more frustrating now than before cause I know what it's like to be able to complete thoughts and not have anxiety, not being all jumbled and stuff like that, so being like that again almost feels worse, but I'm coping and finally starting to accept it.. As for the birth control, we're just seeing if God wants to bless us with more prescious ones....
~ Went to NC for my Mother-in-law's 50th birthday.. that was fun.
Alrighty this is long I know and there were more things that happed but those were the highlights... thanks for taking the time to read it!
I'll leave you with a photo from Halloween and will start posting hopefully at least once a week! Miss all of you! Thanks again for your patience with me, you are virtuous!!

We went with Samamra, the witch, we've gone trick or treating with her every yr for the last 3 yrs! She lives in a small (yet rich) neighborhood and we're usually the only kids that ever come so we ( I mean the girls) get loads of candy!! Nadya and Bella picked their costumes, Bella was a mouse ( kept telling her she was a good mouse beacause she was being quiet like a mouse) and Nadya was a butterfly.. Guess who the "girly" one is!! Ha ha!! Love you guys!
