Favorite conversations, quatro

At lunch on Saturday:

Hannah: Mommy I'm done.

Me: Okay.

Hannah: I wanna get down.

Me: What do you say?

(Typical repsonse: Thank you I enjoyed it.)

Hannah: Thank you, Sarah Beth.

At lunch on Sunday:

Me: What did you learn about at church today?

Hannah: Jesus

Hannah: You know, I told them I had a goldfish at home. (mischeivious smile)

Daniel: You mean you told them you eat goldfish crackers at home?

Me: No, look at her face. Hannah, did you tell your teachers you have a real goldfish?

Hannah: Yeah. You wanna see him?

Let it be known that I nearly had to send her Daddy away from the table for laughing his head off both days. Lot of help he was!

Hannah the Magnificent

This week's trip to the gym was incident free. Hannah is a lot of fun to watch out there!

Thursday, February 19, 2009


A few weeks ago we began the process of finding a gymnastics venue for Hannah's debut as a gymnast. Thanks to our friend Jo Ellen, we found Spartanburg Gymnastics and have loved it. But it's been very eventful!

First week, well we affectionally called that week "gymspastics." It was a hoot! But Hannah is advancing/mastering the basics on schedule and having a great time.

Second week, the owner came into the area where the parents sit and said, "Does anyone have a gray chevrolet?" I admitted this was probably me. "Well," she says, "the lights are flashing, the trunk is popping, and the horn is blowing." How exciting. Yes, Emily had gotten hold of my keys with the remote attached and was literally pushing my buttons.

And last week was just as embarrasing. We are proudly watching Hannah do her sequence, which includes a difficult leg lifting move. It was looking pretty awkward and jerky and Daniel said, "What is she doing?" I looked at him and laughed, and then saw horror on his face. "Sarah Beth, she's peeing!" he cried. Yep. Giant puddle on the carpeted gym floor. I went over there and claimed her, cleaned her up and changed her into a little sweatsuit we had. Mind you, we go to gymnastics commando and there was no changing that at this point. But she would do what she must to get back out there.

Today my goal is to take pictures, so if something else amazing happens I will have proof! :)

Remember Me?

After an ADDITIONAL $100, I finally have a laptop again! I cannot believe how bad it was. I was without email, blog, facebook, adult conversation, argh! So anyway, I will update soon on what's been going on in our lives. Definitely need to catch everyone up on "manastics," Hannah's most recent feat.

Falling off the bed

My laptop had a whole new experience this week. It slid off my bed. I still am not sure why or how but apparently it did because things broke. So I am without a computer and $100 for about two weeks. (Well techincally, the $100 is gone forever). I will be missing the blog, email, and facebook.

I am pretty sure this is part of teaching me balance and better time managment. This is something God was whispering to me already but I was typing so loudly I couldn't hear. Got it loud and clear when I heard the thunk of the computer hitting the floor. So I'll be getting a lot done around the house the next few weeks while it's in repair. Be back soon.
