I guess I've been tagged too now

Here goes...

My 5 random facts:

1. I voted for Mike Huckabee in the Primary.
2. When I was little, I used to look out the window of the car and think about how cool it would be if you could attach a giant ax to the side of the car and drive by a forest chopping down all the trees as you went.
3. My cousins gave me the nickname Kristy Yamaguchi growing up.
4. Some mornings I brush my teeth before I get into the shower, sometimes I wait until after.
5. I won 2nd place in a regional "grocery bagging" competition when I worked at a supermarket in high school.

Places I'd like to visit (or revisit):

1. London
2. San Francisco (Revisit)
3. China
4. The Moon
5. Maine

Goof Ball

Bethany is cracking me up lately! She will disappear for a while then return with hats on, q-tips in her ears, a toilet seat on her face, etc. If she's not doing things like this to herself she is doing them to Oscar. Yesterday i went into the bathroom and there was Oscar, sulking in his bed, with hair bows all over him and a few squirts of lotion on his back. This morning, she followed him with some toilet paper trying to "wipe his nose" and get his "boogies". She is really at a hilarious stage in life!

Early Childhood Education

Bethany has already started to cherish her "evening read". Current favorites include "The Foot Book" by Dr. Seuss, "I Love you Forever", "Prayer for a Child", and of course the classic - "Goodnight Moon". In some cases she has already started "reading" by finishing the sentences we leave short.
