Exercise walks no more.....

So my morning walks with the kiddos are becoming less about me getting a good walk in and more about the kids, which is what it should be.....Miss Lila has become "Miss Independent"......The minute I mention stroller or wagon she is like "NO!".....and its not a polite 'No', it's a scream at the top of her lungs "NO!!"......which I must say has become her new favorite word along with "Hi Daddy" & "Hi Mommy"....what's funny about the last two is she says them in passing, like Hi but I am too busy to talk to you....it's pretty cute....Anyway so the girls and I were on our walk this morning, all 3 actually walking.....and we ran into our friend Rachel and her girls (she also has 3 daughters, one who is 4 one who is 3 and their baby girl is 5 months)...they were playing outside......so we stopped and played at their house for a while.......it was good for all the girls. We all had a great time....and will have to have them over soon to play. Her and her husband are actually building a day care center next to our neighborhood.....so pretty soon she will be a busy lady.....

My other friend in the 'hood Sarah asked me to sign up for a Mother's of Preschoolers group, she is on the steering committee........from talking with her it sounds like a great opportunity to see guest speakers with other moms about motherhood topics and other life stuff......they meet once a month for about 3 hours.....they provide childcare for the kids.....so I signed up and I am looking forward to the first meeting/class on Thursday AM.....The twins are totally thrilled to get to play with their friend Naomi but also are looking forward to meeting a lot of other kids......I guess so far there are 45 moms already signed up.....Should be interesting.....one of the cool things is the stuff they do outside of the once a month meetings.......the do coffee nights and play dates.....I am hoping to meet some other nice moms.....

Well Grandpa will be here on Friday, he is flying in for the WSU v Baylor game....we are heading up to Waco on Saturday morning and staying the night up there (about 3 hours north of here).....We are very excited and the girls can not wait to put on their cheer leading outfits.....Well I am off to watch True Blood, we recorded it and I am curious to see how it is going to be as I usually am not into Vampire stuff, but I really do LOVE Alan Ball, he did Six Feet Under, which is still one of my favorite shows.....
