They Escaped

Harrison and Becca came to visit.  We had so much fun!!!!  Burgers at Holman and Finch, ice cream at Jenni's Splendid Ice Cream (I think the listeria issue has been resolved.)  Donuts at Sublime donuts, coffee at Corso.  We played the Ultimate Escape Game and escaped with 17 seconds to spare!  Then we had a late lunch at the Varsity.  Miss these two!!!!

8th Grade Field Trip

I volunteered to help chaperone the 8th grade field trip.  We drove to Amicalola Falls and hiked 5 miles to the Len Foot Hike Inn.  It was such a fun trip.   The kids were so sweet and respectful-K really has a nice class.  
The Inn was great!  I was picturing out houses and spiders.  It was clean and cosy with great bathrooms, hot showers with nice towels and really good food!

I got up early to watch the sunrise.  The others parents were still asleep but the kids were up and going strong!

 The kids loved the swing.

Herding Cats

We are fostering 3 kittens.  The term herding cats has taken on new meaning.  I had forgotten how silly and fun little kittens are.  We are having so much for with these little guys.

Spring Break 2015

We went to CA for spring break-4 nights in Orange County and 4 nights in LA.  Lots of shopping, eating, hanging out with friends, pool time, TMZ bus tour (we are nerdy that way!) and a comedy club (note to self-inappropriate for young children also means inappropriate for teens).

I had taken K's phone away for midnight texting and a few other things.  I decided not to bring our iPad so we could have a technology free trip.  Unfortunately I forgot my iPhone.  Spending 8 days with no technology was difficult-especially since we had plans with friends and getting in touch was difficult.  But is all worked out and we survived!  I didn't have my camera so the only pictures that I have are the one Stacy texted me.

K's favorite part of the trip.  Hanging with Stacy's hairless cats.  She really, really, really wants one.

K doesn't look too happy for someone surrounded by cute boys!

Stacy (AKA Martha Stewart West) made K this cute easter basket

The Dog Whisperer

The day that one of the big storms was supposed to hit I was running to work out and spotted a doberman in the middle of the street.  I pulled over to help and another woman was trying to get him to come to her.  He was very wary and would not come to either one of us.  I went on to my class and an hour and half later he was still in the same spot.  He would not come to me.  A woman was pulling out of a driveway and told me he had been there all night but would not come to her.  I went home to get some food and K.  I put a bowl of food out and he ate all of  the food.  It was freezing so I got in the car to warm up and told K to see if she could get him to eat more.  The next thing I knew he was in the car in her lap, licking her face.  
We were able to get to the Humane Society before they closed because of the bad weather and he was chipped.  We contacted the owner and arranged to meet.  The dog lives close to downtown so he was pretty far from home.  His owner doesn't work too far from where we live.  The odd thing is why he stayed in the same spot for 24 hours.  So glad that had a happy ending!

How is it possible that K is 15????  For her birthday we went to Neiman's and had her makeup done.  Her comment was "Oh Lordy I look like a Kardashian."  I think she has been living in the south too long.  She looked like she was about to cry.  So went went to Sephora and used some makeup remover to take all of the makeup off.

 Then we stopped at Saks and had her makeup done and she was much happier.  She looks more like herself!

K and her cousins went to Midevil times for dinner. She loved it. So sweet of them to take her! William got into med school and is leaving Atlanta. We are so sad but we think it is so cool that he is going ot be a fourth generation doctor! And Nataly has a job in Chicago.

Winter Break

Winter break was a quick trip to Naples to visit BFF Bevie.  Like the rest of the country it was cold so there was no beach time.  We ate a lot and shopped.  Can't go wrong with a trip like that!
