13 thursday… random stuff

Thursday, October 9th, 2008
  1. Friday we are going on a field trip… Izzy and me with her teacher and para and one other student and his mom and para… to a corn field maze and pumpkin patch.  We’re having a picnic and stopping for ice cream.  Oh! a hayride too.  I need to remember to charge my camera battery AND I’m hoping it’s cool enough for izzy’s new outfit!
  2. Izzy has been doing so well in school.  She is really showing everyone that she knows what’s going on.  I am not surprised by anything that girl does…. she is a superstar :)…
  3. I’m enjoying catching up with some old bloggers on facebook… they’ve moved on from blogging and it’s nice to “see” them again!
  4. I am on the last “twilight” book.  I just want to be finished.
  5. Matt and I are still walking nightly and I am feeling great!  My clothes are getting looser too which is a bonus!
  6. I’m thinking about making something like this for Izzy’s stroller for trunk or treat…
  7. Jillian is scary this season on Biggest Loser…
  8. Amanda is taking the ACT (again) on the 25th. I told her to “think 30!”
  9. That’s the same day of matt’s ordination…
  10. I’m going to read “The Shack,” as soon as I finish this book.
  11. Every night when Matt and I walk Pinky (the horse) comes to the fence to be petted.  He likes me best! 🙂  I can walk out to check the mail or get the paper and say, “pinky,” and he looks up at me trying to see if I’m going to walk over to pet him or not.  He’s a smart horse!
  12. Little Wyatt (family friend who is 2) got his heart transplant and is doing super!
  13. Mickey (Susan’s husband) needs prayers tomorrow.  He is having double by-pass heart surgery.

this and that…

Izzy rode the bike today at school after spending time outside swinging.  It is a beautiful windy sunny day.  It’s about 72 degrees.  Here are a few pics of the bike riding!
