Lions.....Tigers.........and Bears......Oh My!!

Well I can't believe that it is Friday already!?!? Where did this week go???? How is it that I find myself even busier now than when I had a full time job? Trucking kids from here to there, trips to the grocery store, it seems to suck your day away!! Makes me wonder how I did it when I worked full time because the trips to the grocery store where still there and so were all the mundane task of every day living. Hmmmm maybe that was why I was so grumpy back then!! Hehehe I can still get grumpy now, but not as much as before!

Well this week was also filled with a trip to the Zoo with my son Tristen's Kindergarten class!! I was mildly excited, after all 20 screaming, yelling and crying 6 year old in one big group puts my anxiety up!! Tristen however was VERY excited! He got to ride the bus for the first time. In the morning he got to go with brother to the bus stop and ride with brother to school! Typically I take Tristen to school as he is in afternoon kindergarten (oh and don't put your kids in afternoon kindergarten, let me tell u it make your day WAY less productive!). So he was excited to be a big boy and ride the bus with his brother Justin! He got on the bus with a little help from brother, like they say that first step is a doosey...hehehhe it was taller than his legs!!

In the meantime grandma and I were on our way to the zoo we wanted to be there on time as all the notes that were sent home said DO NOT BE LATE, so we left with plenty of time to get there. I am famous for getting lost..hehhehehe....even with navigation in my car! But we made it to the Zoo at 9am on the dot. Go figure I am on time and the bus ended up being 45 minutes late, yes we sat there for 45 minutes wonder where everyone was!!

Well come to find out we didn't have to stay with the group of twenty kids (my anxiety relaxed) we just had to check in with the teacher and get Tristen from her and we were free to roam the park! It was a really relaxing day. We saw some animals, but then Tristen found the play ground that has a slide. Needless to say mom and grandma sat on a bench for over an hour while he went up and down the one slide. He didn't want to leave the slide!!! We finally tore him away and went and looked at some more animals. Tristen is a hoot, he is very serious for a 6 year old, he asked what time it was and when we told him he said that we needed to leave at 12:15 as this is the time that teacher said we could leave. So at noon we decided to leave the zoo and we made it into the car at 12:14, he is like we are a minute early but that's ok mom......

Well all I can say is I would rather be walking around in the Zoo than telling someone why they can't qualify for a home loan! We all had a great time and Tristen was all smiles, so I say this week was a success. I am going to be trying my hand at a paper bag album which is an scrapbook of sorts. My first one will be about our Zoo trip! I am excited, I ordered some new stamps and a new cartridge for my cricut that is for animals and baseball. Tristen and Justin just started baseball. So Justine will be getting a baseball album made! Hehhe that is if the Zoo one turns out! Mom snapped a lot of pics at the Zoo so I have a lot to work with!! When it's done I will post it here on the blog so you all can have a peek!!

Be safe, Be happy!
