lame blog

Yeah, I know you've been thinking it. This is a lame blog you've committed to. Maybe you check it every day for updates, or maybe you even put it on your bookmarks tab because you felt you ought to give it that honor. And now, nearly two and a half weeks have passed since a new blog has been posted. Lame. Well I'll tell you what happened: VBS. Yeah, that beautful monster called Vacation Bible School made it's first ever appearance at PRBC this year. It is an all-consuming event! The kids had a blast and I enjoyed leading the crafts team, but boy am I glad that it's done! I think Cameron liked getting rescued out of the nursery every day by her Grammy and cousin Christina. Jason loved being part of the kindergarten class, singing songs, doing crafts, playing games, eating snacks and pretty much every other moment during the day. It was great and we can't wait to help out next year.
The last day of VBS was also our 11th anniversary. We had a very nice dinner at Upper Crust (an Italian place in San Luis) and then watched The Bourne Ultimatum. It's great going to the movies and then coming out of the theatre in the mood to recreate car chases from the movie you just watched. Unfortunately the moment you sit in your car with crumbs and carseats you realize how very uncool you are and just drive the speed limit until you pick up the kids.
We were supposed to be a big help to mom and dad in their move to Paso Robles last week. However, the kids were stricken with colds and fevers while I had one of my fabulous headaches. We were not helpful at all! :(
Big news in the TV viewing department: my girl Sabra won "So You Think You Can Dance". Take that mom! I've been practicing a lot and I really think I've got this "hip-hop" thing down. I'm really good.... Also, The Office season 3 DVD comes out Sept. 4, Best Buy will be selling a special gift set with a mini- bobblehead Dwight and a Dundee award! Also, the new season starts Sept. 27 at 9p.m. Be there!
In other news, I took Jason school shopping this weekend. He needs pants and shoes because he's a boy and every pair of pants and shoes that he owns has holes in it. No big deal , right? Well I was shocked when in the middle of Kohl's my innocent son exclaims, "those are so COOL!". What was he talking about? The coveted item was a pair of Tony Hawk dirty wash jeans with a toy skateboard attached. OK, I can handle this.... was he talking about the jeans or the skateboard? And how does my boy know what is COOL? He hasn't even been in school yet to know these sort of things, right? Right?????? I took him into the dressing room (another weird experience because I was a mom in the boy's dressing room... that's ok, right? Because he's only 5 and I'm not sending him in alone, right? Help me out here folks....) and quickly learned that it was indeed the jeans that were COOL, because he also exclaimed, "even the inside is COOL!" What? The inside of a pair of jeans can be COOL? I didn't know that! I have so much to learn..... school starts Sept. 4!
So there you have it... the update on the last two weeks and my pitful excuses for my lame blog. Thanks for reading and don't delete me from your bookmarks just yet!

Jennifer - There is NOTHING lame about blogs about my grandchildren! I will say, the more the better, though! Now about Sabra - she is a wonderful dancer who deserved to win. I am just upset that my Lacey didn't win because she is also a wonderful dancer who deserved to win (maybe even more than Sabra!). You did peak my interest with the hip-hop dancing. Do you do demos for family members????

Dressing room - I think I took Jeff into the ladies dressing rooms until he was old enough to go in on his own with me waiting outside. I think I also just bought clothes for him and had him try them on at home. He wasn't quite the fashionista until he got a little older.
