Well, we met Kendall's teacher tonight. Her name is Mrs. Pugh. I have heard nothing but FABULOUS things about her and two of my friend's kids actually had her! I loved her classroom. It was decorated so super cute! I loved it! I think it is going to be an AWESOME year! We have 5 other kids from her class last year and a few other friends we know. Bailey, Justin, Brandon, Jazlyn and Ashton are all in her class. I am happy about the first 4, but not happy about that last one. Also, we have Kasisdi who we know from soccer and softball and another girl she knows from a mutual friend.

Last year at the very end of the school year this little boy Ashton, who was WILD all year, choked Kendall. I was furious, but there was only 4 days left in the year so I didn't push it. BUT, now they are in the same class and that is causing me some serious stress. I caught the teacher alone for a minute and mentioned the issue. She said just to mention it on the teachers card and we should be fine. I was happy how awesome she was about it because I was realllyyy stressed.

Did I mention I freaking love this teacher already????

We went down and saw Mrs. McIntosh! Man I love her! I am going to miss her but I think we are going to have the 1st grade version of her!!!!! SO EXCITED.

This year's meet the teacher was such a different experience than last year. We only knew one or two other people in the school. Kendall and I met SO many people last year through all our activities. We knew so many people this year. It was really cool. I absolutely loved it. I have always wanted to be super involved mom and know people in the school. And now...I do!!!!

I also received a few great compliments on how thin I looked! SCORE! Also today, I went over to one of my old employers at lunch for deliver something and saw some old friends. I haven't seen a few in person since before KJ was born. One said I hadn't aged a bit! Man that felt GREAT!!!!!!!!!!! I did feel very old when one of the girls that I used to work with since the late 90's and at that time had a daughter in junior high told me her daughter was 23!!! MAN that was rough!!!!!!!!!!

All in all I had a great day. I had an evil customer call me and try and ruin my day about 4:30 but I shook it off and got my baby and had a great time!!! We had an awesome time.

This weekend is going to be fun too! We are going to go practice softball in the morning since tryouts are next weekend. We have a birthday party at 3 and then we are going to go skating on Sunday with another great friend. After skating it is time to get ready for school on Monday morning!!!!

I can't wait! I love my life!!!!!!!!!!!

Here comes the sun!!!!

ok, so I have been told that it is time for an update!

Well, what can I say. They divorce was final on 8/02. It was weird. I knew I was done but the finality of it was weird. I guess the feeling of failure was really what I felt. I tried and tried to save things and I just couldn't do it anymore. But I am done and I can move on.

What else is going on...Kendall is starting 1st grade in just a few days. I am not prepared. I didn't cry on the 1st day of school last year, but I might this year. 1st grade is SO BIG! How did my baby get so big so fast??? Also, she has signed up for softball again for the fall season and we just signed up for cheer classes. It is just recreational cheer for now, but she went last night and LOVED it! She has done soccer and gymnastics and softball. She loves softball and is getting better, but she went into that class last night and ROCKED cheer!! I was so proud of my girl. She went in not even being able to do a cartwheel and came out almost able to do one. It doesn't hurt that there are 2 coaches and 3 girls and one of the coaches is director of cheer at the school. She will also be in Daisy Scouts again.

Me..well that is another story LOL. I am working full time. Nothing new. I am now a single mom. I am ok with that. But, I love being involved in volunteering with kids so here is what I am doing...I am the scout leader again but I now have a co-leader. I was thinking about coaching softball again, but last night my friend asked me to be on the PTO board as the carnival co-chair. I think that sounds AWESOME! My mom was big into all our school carnivals so I think that is super neat. I also am thinking about taking a yearbook position. I am still waiting on more information on that. I will also be an ASST. coach for softball.

I know, I might have lost my mind. But you know what. I remember my mom ALWAYS being involved and I loved it. I want Kendall to know that even though I worked, I did everything I could to be involved with her. I told her tonight I was going to be more involved in the PTO and she was so excited!

SOoooooo the next school year is going to be a busy one.

Here comes the sun!!!!!
