Ice Cream Truck!!!

It is 4:15 and I just got the boys ice cream, why? Because I heard the nostalgic music of the ice cream man coming down the block. Will this treat spoil the dinner I had planned for 5:30pm? Most definitely. Will the boys now act like wild animals when they hear the same song throughout the summer? Absolutely. Why did I just do this to myself?


We got the newest additions about a month ago after learning that my good friend Steph, is also getting caught up in the hobby.  My main reason for getting them is for the EGGS!  But they are also so much fun to care for and the boys love feeding them miscellaneous bugs we find outside.

Uhhh, How do I do this again??

I really haven't fallen off the earth, contracted a nasty case of ringworm, or sworn off computers forever, I just got out of the habit of blogging! I can't believe its been since April... Well how should I sum the past 4 months up? How about in bullet form?
  • I took 7 classes ( Yes 7!!!) over the summer and was almost at the point of eating paint chips when it was all said and done. It sucked.
  • We took the fam for a trip to see John's parents in NC for a few weeks Aug 6-21. It was a good trip, lots of soaking up the sun at the beach, but there's no place like home!
  • I'm in my LAST semester of school...then student teaching January-May and then hopefully getting a job :) 
  • I sold my ponies a few days ago BIG :(    I have little to no free time, it wasn't fair to them being stuck in stalls for months at a time. Plus they aren't the cheapest hobby. Think luxury car payment.
  • The boys are not pottytrained and I don't care!

Me, me, me and me

My throat is still hurting. This will be day 4 of having some sort of nasty bug or allergy (?), other than my throat feeling like there are tiny cactus prongs sliding up and down as I swallow, I feel fine.  If this is strep, it will progressively get worse, right? I hate being sick. 

I'm also feeling quite snacky lately. Just call me snacky pants. I made rice crispy treats last night,YUM...I added a little more marshmellowies than the recipe called for, along with strawberry crispies, ooooh yeah. Much much better than sex.

I need help guys. I know I've asked this before, but I need your help again!!! One of my classes requires a paper over peoples' perceptions about how children learn language. I need the following questions answered (don't worry...names will be changed in my paper). Any and all elaborations are welcomed!

1. How do you believe children learn language and when does this learning start?

2. Do you think certain languages are learned quicker and easier by children than others?

3. What do you think are the reasons behind some language delays in children and how can they be corrected and/or treated?

4. What are your earliest memories of talking? Do you remember what frustrated you? Do you remember trying to verbalize something difficult?

5. How did your parents and/or teachers help to develop your language abilities?

Thank you guys!!

Snow Day in March

John and his snow man

Matthew just chillin'

The boys
The good news is that I'll graduate this year, quite unexpectedly. I didn't think it would happen until after the Spring 2009 semester. The bad news is that I'll be taking 6 summer school classes and 7 classes in the fall to finish early. Yee-haw!
