Thursday night Samuel had a Musical Revue at his school. He performed 3 numbers. Two of them were duets. The third was a solo. I don't mean to brag, but wait, yes I do, he was awesome! He is so at ease when he performs, and has so much fun performing. I asked him once if he ever gets nervous, and he said not really. I am so proud of him! The songs he performed were: Fly Me to the Moon, from Delovely, You're Timeless to Me, from Hairspray and Mr. Cellophane, from Chicago. He and his friends were hilarious. If I ever get this video to upload you can see for yourselves why I'm so proud. So far I'm not having very much luck. If I don't get it to work tonight I will post it tomorrow when James is here to help me. Well I'm out of luck, no video tonight. Anyway, Samuel we are so proud of you!

But, this morning when I looked out of the kitchen window and saw a mouse, I was very thankful for the neighbors cat who was lurking in my yard ready to pounce. I really really don't like mice and i am glad that it was outside and not inside but still, it was too close. Kendall thought it was funny to see the cat throw the mouse in the air. He would laugh and say "it fall down." It kept him entertained for quite some time. Shelby on the other hand, thought it was gross to see the blood from the mouse, and then to have the cat leave the mouse. She will be happy to see when she gets home that the cat did come back for it. Hopefully it will leave the remains of the mouse in someone else's yard. I don't want to have to clean that one up! Anyway, today I am a little bit more fond of cats.

I guess that's what i get for having a blog now.
Here are the rules for those who don't know.
A: Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves
B: At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names.
Here it goes:
#1 I am computer stupid! I know next to nothing about how to work a computer. You can tell by my blog. I am still learning the ropes. Luckily I have a husband who knows his way around the computer and helps me whenever I need it.
#2 I have a great Husband! He is the most patient person to put up with me. And while he was out of work he never seemed to lack in Faith. He always would remind me that we would be okay! He was right!
#3 I have great kids! I may be a little prejudiced, but they each have such a strong spirit whithin them. They make me laugh, and they even make me cry(the good- proud- of- your-kid-cry).
#4 I am way to sensitive! I cry at commercials. I even cry watching Disney Movies. My kids will ask "Mom are you crying?" It doesn't even have to be Disney. Spiderman III made me cry.
#5 I have too many favorite T.V. shows. The best one is 24 and that doesn't start again 'til January. Until than I have plenty of others to keep me entertained.
#6 I live for Thursday nights. Volleyball night!!! This has been my favorite sport since I can remember. I was taught how to play by my brothers. I have played at School, USVBA club, and adult city leagues including co-ed.
That was easier than I thought it would be. Now I tag: Thomalee A., Jami B., Cindy T.

Everyone else is doing this so why not me. I can't promise that i will be consistent but i will try my best. This is a great way to keep our friends and family posted on what's happening with our family. It seems to me that the kids our growing fast (way to fast). Samuel is a Senior and already applying to College. He has been very busy with School and having fun acting. He just finished doing Shakespeare at the High School. Now he is working on High School Musical. It is performed by the teachers and staff at Branham, and directed by the Drama class. As for Cameron, he is a Sophomore. It is hard to believe that will we have another driver in the family next year. He is just about finished with his Driver's Ed class at school. Then it is on to Driver's Training. Cameron is our Lacrosse player! But this season he had to sit on the sidelines, all games are on Sundays. Meanwhile he is trying out for Soccer at Branham. He will start Lacrosse again in January, when the games will be on Saturdays. Shelby is in 5th grade. She is finishing up her second season of Volleyball with the USYVL. Maybe i will finally get a volleyball player in my family. She is playing the flute with the school band. This is her 2nd year, and seems to enjoy it. I can't believe she will be in middle school next year. Kendall is 2, but tells people he is 4. He wants to go to school like his brothers and sister. So for now he goes with me to the gym and plays in the nursery there. Maybe in January i will enroll him in pre-school. Kendall keeps me going. He loves going to the park and thinks because we live across the street from a park it is his own personal park.
Wow this is long! i guess if anyone gets bored you could just stop reading and look at someone else's blog.
Anyway, after 9 months of unemployment James is now working. The company is Plan Ready and they are located in Morgan Hill. He is the Vice-President of Business Developement and Marketing. This company makes software to help companies and government agencies do emergency prepardeness planning and help risk management.
I have been staying busy chasing Kendall, Coaching Shelby's volleyball team, and driving kids around when Samuel or James weren't available. I also play drop-in volleyball on Thursday nights. I'm a counselor in ward young women.
