This summer was CRAZY busy, and CRAZY fun! We are finally settled into our fall schedule again...with a few extra activities. The girl joined the cross country school team and they had their first meet on my birthday. :) Here is a little video of the start of her race. She did AWESOME and ran almost the whole mile!! We are all very happy with our little runner!!!

The girl and I are reading the first Harry Potter, and we are about half way through. She LOVES it, of course, but the funny thing was this. She declared the other day that SHE is a witch, and she gets magical powers from her heart-shaped birthmark on her forehead. (It's VERY faint) And her special talent is that she can talk to cereal. And milk.
She pretty much rocks.

So, last week the boy started Pre-School. It's at the High School and each little kid has a high school student assigned to them as a helper and friend. He was signed up to start in September, but they had a little girl who hasn't been for a while and they decided to fill her spot. The teacher said that the HS student was lonely because she didn't have a special friend. awww. So, she called me and we snagged the spot. It was weird the first few days, because The boy is only 3 and he still seems so little. BUT, he loves it so far and I think it will be really good for him.

So, here I am in Orlando, FL. I am here for a conference for work. It should be pretty fun since it is a software conference and I am down here with a fun group of guys.
This morning, I got to the airport at about 7:15 AM and screwed up my check-in. Security made me go back to the desk and check in properly. After going through the metal detectors, I was patted down and had my bag searched. That is a first, but it wasn't so bad. I thought I had about an hour until my flight left, but they were boarding early. I had just enough time to get my traditional Odwalla Strawberry Banana fruit puree and Banana Nut Muffin from Starbuck's and then I boarded the plane to Phoenix. I read some and started to watch "Run, Fatboy, Run". The people next to me were NOT watching a family film. I think it was one of the Starship Troopers sequels.
When we landed in Phoenix, I was hungry, but I had to hurry to my gate. When I got there I only had enough time to grab a pop and fruit cup (for only $8!). Then I was on the plane to Orlando. I started out sitting next to a cougar who obviously had something to drink with her lunch. She wanted to sit next to her friends, but their seats were split up. I was on the aisle and she "kindly" straddled me to get out of the row. I could tell this was going to be a bad flight, but then she convinced a lady from the back of the plane to trade seats. That lady later said she had no desire to sit next to the cougar's friend at the back of the plane. So, it wasn't such a bad flight. I read more and finished my movie.
After a lengthy shuttle ride, I am at the hotel. I am tired, but it is only 8:10 PM according to my internal clock. Luckily they have Discovery Channel in the hotel. I can watch that while I fall asleep.
Oh! My inner-geek jumped a bit when I saw the road sign for the exit to Kennedy Space Center. That would be cool to go there! I guess I will have to settle for Disney World.
