Cute Kids & Tennis

So I'm turning into my mom.  I now play tennis. A few times a week.  And I absolutely love it.

I started going back in June.  I've always wanted some sort of activity to keep me in shape that's not lifting weights and running. I've tried both, and I really don't like either one.  So, tennis is now my thing.  I think playing soccer in high school really has helped me.  I feel like I've caught on quickly and I'm getting better each week. 

After picking up Camden & Lucy from the gym daycare, Camden really wanted McDonald's for lunch.  So we went to Burger King (so much better than McDonald's.)  Awesome, right?  I worked off all these calories at tennis, then ate a Whopper Jr, small fry and Diet Coke.  So healthy.   Anyway on the way home, this was my conversation with Camden.

C: "When I'm a dad, can I be a police man?"
M:  "Sure.  You can be whatever you want!"
C: "Can I be a Burger King man and a police man?"
M: "Yes.  You can be whatever you want."

Right then I look in my rear view mirror and he has a giant smile on his face and whispered "Yes!"

It was hard for me not to say, "No you can't be a police man, you'll get shot." and "No, you can't be a dirt bag and work at Burger King as a dad."  But I'm trying not to limit my kids. Reach for the stars, honey.  Hopefully just not for the Burger King and Police man stars.  But I didn't say that.

Lucy ate her chicken nuggets the whole way home with her Burger King crown covering her eyes, resting on her nose.  She wore that thing around all afternoon.  So cute.

Katelyn had her SEP conferences this afternoon with her 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Woodbury.  She is doing great!  Her teacher said Katelyn is great to have in class. She is quick to follow directions, always finishes her work first, and seems to be the only kid to know how to whisper. (Pretty sure that came from me whisper-yelling "Be quiet! Lucy is sleeping!") 

She knew all of her letters, and only missed 4 letter sounds.  She does tend to reverse her letters and numbers and write them backwards.  We will work on that.

Rob & Tiff (my brother & sister-in-law) are coming back from Texas tonight! YAY! They have been gone all summer.  So excited for them to come home.  

I've got a cleaning bug..... going to clean the bathroom and do some laundry.
