It's never good when...

the director of your child's preschool is waiting for you to arrive!

So, I go to pick up Luke from school Friday, and Miss Kristina meets me at the door. The toilets had been backing up all week at school, and no one could figure out why, or who was doing it. When the teachers take the kids to the bathroom, they are supposed to leave the doors unlatched so the teachers can help them if the need it. Well, Luke always runs in and locks the door before they can get there to stop him. Apparently, Luke thinks it is really fun to whack the toilet paper rolls as hard as he can, and watch the toilet paper pile up on the floor. He, of course, knows he is not supposed to do this, so before the teachers see him, he flushes the evidence down the toilet. He did this several times last week, and apparently backed up the toilets to the point of overflowing more than once. They finally caught him in the act on Friday, and figured out he was causing the overflow. From now on, Luke has to use the handicapped restroom, which has a door that opens out. A teacher must stand at his stall and hold the door open to prevent him from locking it. Miss Kristina just wanted me to know, so I would not be surprised if Luke said something to me about out it. I don't know how I am going to make it through the next 15 years! I have a feeling this will not be the last time I have to meet with the principal.

From The Free Dictionary
Adj. 1. strong-willed - having a determined will, strong-minded, obstinate, stubborn, unregenerate - tenaciously unwilling or marked by tenacious unwillingness to yield.

Monster Trucks Part 2

Here is the last of the decent monster truck pictures. I can't get good action shots because my camera does not have a fast enough speed. I did, however, get a little video. You can get a small taste of how loud it is in the video.

The little trucks are called tough trucks. They are a lot of fun to watch because they race as fast as they can over hills and get some pretty good air. This one is called Wild Thing. Luke liked the monkey.

Monster Trucks Part 1

My brother Carl and I took Luke to see the monster trucks in Springdale last night. He, of course, love it. He sat there for 3 hours and watched everything that happened. He even wore earplugs and did not complain. You have never experienced what loud is until you've been to a monster truck show.

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted. I am now employed, so my posting time is much less. Also, since my job involves sitting at my computer for 6 hours typing, I don't really feel like posting much. I am now a working medical transcriptionist. I really enjoy it. The work is very interesting, but it is definitely hard on your hands and back that last hour or so. I work 5 days a week from 9:00 pm - 3:00 am. So far, it is working out pretty well. Jeremy is handling Luke in the morning so I can rest. Anyway, we are good. This summer has been completely crazy, as ususal. We had the ABA softball tournament a few weeks ago, so here are some pictures from that.

Here's Luke with Brenna helping keep score.
