Project 365 - Week 19

Just got back from our mom/kid vacation at the beach. Had a great time and wished we could have stayed longer. Eventually some of the photos will make it here, but if you can't wait the two months it will apparently take me, you can view them all here

On to week 19:


A big new purchase--both Jackson and Jordan got the new DSi--and the best part is, they only had to each lay out about $20. Game Stop had an awesome deal where they were offering $70 for their old DS lites plus a 30% bonus on any games turned in. Mom and Dad are happy with very little cash outlay. Kids are happy with a new gadget to play with.


New haircuts for both girls. Just a trim for Jensen, but quite a big change for Jordan. The stylist blew it dry plus used a flat iron! We'll probably never see it look like this again, so good thing we got a picture!


Rosemary Roasted Potatoes--a staple side dish around here. Red potatoes cut into wedges; kosher salt; rosemary; olive oil. Toss together and roast in a 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes. Super simple and super good.


6th grade field day at RMS. They spelled her name wrong on her shirt...if only I had a dollar for every time someone spelled our name that way... Look at the cute, short pony tail!


We found a turtle in the back yard. Of course, Jensen wanted to keep it. We told her she could keep it for one day and then we had to let it go in the bayou. Surprisingly she acquiesced without too much fuss.


First swim meet for a rookie Gator. It was just the time trials, no opposing team, but still a big deal--first events on her hand, first cheers, first heat--all accomplished without a hitch.


Mother's Day--look at how lucky I am. Got served breakfast in bed; off to church; then a nice, fancy brunch at Fleming's.
