Officially a 3rd Grader

Yesterday was Jazmin's first day of school. She is now officially a 3rd grader. She is so excited. She has 2 different teachers this year. She spends half the day with one teacher and then they all move to a different room and spend the rest of the day with another teacher. The best part is that the afternoon teacher was Jaz's teacher last year. She's the long term sub teacher. It seems like every teacher in that school is having babies so there is always someone out on maternity leave! LOL She gets her own locker and everything. Which of course she wants to decorate with magnets :) I know she'll have a great year. I'm so proud of you Jaz!!!

Getting soooo big

Phoenix is getting so big! I went in there this morning to get her out of her crib and there she was......sitting up, all on her own......right under her mobile, with her head in it! Guess it's time to move her crib mattress down. :)

Took a tumble

I was hanging curtains in the girls room. They needed something to block out the light a little more so they aren't up at the crack of dawn. I was standing on a stool. Couldn't quite reach one side.......so I stood on top of Phoenix's dresser. I knew it wasn't the smartest thing in the world. That's when I felt the dresser start to fall. I knew it was falling and I couldn't do a thing about it. It was as if it was all in slow motion......then BAM I was laying on the floor. The dresser was laying on top of me, I smacked my face on the crib, I've got nasty scrapes on my shin and forearm, my knee is black and blue and my neck is all outta wack. I was in a car wreck a few years ago and I had a case of whiplash that required me to see the chiropracter on regular visits. I'm hoping I don't have to go back. My neck feels just like that again. So momma is takin it easy. Taking some Ibuprofen and resting. And in case your wondering, yes I did get the curtains back up. :)

The value of water

"Momma, can't turn water on" says Jacey as she's trying to wash her hands. "Yes you can sweetie. Try again." I say "Nope!" Still no water. So momma goes it and sure enough.......no water. What a lovely thing to find out at 10am with 3 children at home. So I start to panic. Call dh "Did you pay the water bill?" "Um, ya" "Are you sure?" "YES!" "Well we've got no water!" I go outside and there are service men working on the line. I ask him how long we'll be without water. "Till 3. But you should have water. Everyone south doesn't but you should. " Aparently there is a valve problem that shut our water off too. Lovely........ no water till 3pm....... Luckily Phoenix is sleeping and I don't have to make her a bottle right now. Rob is bringing home lunch AND a case of water. AARRRGGGHHHH!

When it rains it pours

Amarillo has a very poor drainage system. So every single time it rains, the city gets flooded. We got 2-3 inches yesterday. Poor mailman
This is the intersection by Rob's work
There shouldn't be any water coming over the side of this bank. That's all runoff from the street.
I should add that I was stuck in the van with all the kiddos when this happened. Melissa and I were going to hobby lobby. We made it as far as the hobby lobby parking lot. :) We never did make it inside.
