So Sorry!

I have done a horrible job keeping up...and there is really no excuse good enough! So, I will take a little while to update on what is going on in our lives.
The week after my last post I went with my mom and dad to see my nanny (my mom's mom). She has stage 4 lung cancer and had been in the hospital. She had come home and I wanted to see her and for her to see Jackson. Little ones always make sick people feel a little better. We had a wonderful time spending time with her. She did well while we were there! Hope to see her again soon!
The next week I started subbing for WeeSchool. The past 3 weeks I have had the 3 year old class...I should state that they have JUST turned 3! They are a lot of fun! The best thing of all is that Jackson gets to go to. So he is getting to be around other kids and he loves it! There is a little girl that he has fallen for and goes up and gives her hugs and loves to sit in her lap...she is also the one that he beat with a toy! That was a sight...this child is just sitting there letting Jackson hit her with a toy. I flip, grab my abusive child, and spank his bottom in front of all the kids! I turn around to find all 8 kids staring at me wide eyed. The little girl is the one to break the silence and says, "He is just a baby, he doesn't know!" My response was that he will learn not to hit other children...I'm sure she understood that... Jackson then had to give her a hug, which he did willingly! Oh, I know that it is the first of many embarrassing moment from my child and I pray that I respond a little better next time, like take him to the bathroom to spank his bottom!
I have 3 more days of WeeSchool, unless they sign me up for more days.
Well, I'm not sure where I have left off on football and I'm sad that I can not give you play by plays of the games that I have missed. But just for an update we are 3-2. We have lost the past 2 games. I will tell you that this past week we made Godley play their game...which is the first time they have had to do that this season! We play Whitney this week and I'm looking forward to Friday night!
Karis is growing quickly! I have 11 1/2 weeks to go. It seems like this pregnancy has flown by, although I'm not complaining. On the other hand, I do not feel ready. I really need to get myself in gear and get some things done! I have to get material picked out for her quilt, I need to sew the quilt, get a stroller, get some shelving in her bedroom, get a diaper bag, and find a dresser/changing table! I guess I will start working on that soon!
Well, Jackson is now up from his nap and it is a little hard to concentrate on my task at hand! So until next time....I promise it will be sooner than later!

Game Day

It is game day! The Medlock home is ready! And I think the Buckaroos are ready! I'm tyring to do something to help with my anxiousness.
Ok, so I was going to give an overview of all the baking that I have done this week. Which, by the way, I have soooo enjoyed every moment of it...well except when I forgot to put the eggs in the cookie dough! But here goes...Monday was banana bread and sugar cookies, Wednesday was 2 batches of sugar cookies, Thursday was apple crisp, and then today I have made a banana pudding and chocolate chip cookies! The banana pudding was new, I have never made homemade pudding before...well with my moms help...but so far it looks good. I still have to put it all together. I'm waiting for the bowl to get frosty in the freezer to I can whip up the whipping cream! Oh, I can't wait to stuff this in my mouth!!!! I hope everyone enjoys it tonight as much as I am. (oh, I don't know if I mentioned but after the game we are having a coaches dinner. From now on at home games we will do a meal after the game so that we can visit and see our husbands. Should be lots of fun!)
Jackson is napping for the second time today. I thought yesterday that maybe he was ready to lose 2 naps and move to 1, but I was very very wrong! He was a mess and only because he was so tired! He just needs his rest...guess he takes after his momma in that area. So, he is back to two naps and hopefully will wake up ready to go!
Well, I guess I am now boring you! So I will post on the game tomorrow!!!

Blessed Day

Today has been a good day. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out because I was up after midnight last night making cookies! MY fault!!!! I truly believe that being pregnant does something to your brain...makes it scattered!!! I made a whole batch of cookies and then realized that I forgot the eggs. I was so frustrated at myself and frustrated because I didn't think that I was going to have enough flour to make a whole new batch. This is where my amazing husband joins in...he jumps out of his 9:30 and goes down to the IGA to pick me up a bag of flour! So because of my mistake I was up way later than I thought and was sure that I would be totally exhausted today. But, it has been a great day!
I had a bouquet to deliver this morning at the First Baptist Church. It was meet the teacher day for the Weekids program and one of the husbands got a bouquet for there wife, who is a teacher. She was very excited and it was fun to deliver. Well, while I was there I got asked if I would be interested in subbing. *Side note- This has been something that I have been praying about for months. I thought that I wanted to teach a weekids class, but knew come January it would be to much. But I had not heard from the director about subbing...I had called her this I had just really been praying about if it was something I was suppose to do or not.
I agreed to help out for the week that she was going to be gone...trying to hold my excitement in! I just love when God answers prayers! So I walk down the hall to discuss all this with the director and she has 3 more weeks that she knows another teacher is going to be out. Sooooo, starting Sept. 13th - Oct. 7th I will be working on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Ok, here is the best part! Jackson gets to go too! He will be in the room with me and get to play with other kids and have mommy around other kids! Also, an answer to my prayers. So it was a very exciting morning.
Update of the cookie is going very well for the first week. I have sold 2 bouquets and 1 box order of cookies. Pretty good for just getting the word out; hopefully more orders to come!
Now for a football update...I'm a nervous wreck. And that's all I know. No just kidding...well kind of. I know that the boys have had a great week of practice and that my husband has not come home one day frustrated at them...that's huge! Not that Peter comes home everyday frustrated, but there are some that are harder than others. Peter has just stated that they are catching on to everything very well! So, we will see tonight how JV does and tomorrow night how Varsity does. I'm anxious for the end result. Please continue to pray that we will play with confidence and strength! Also, pray against injuries!
Will update soon!
