Did we really do all that???

So after reading Lynetta's list of everything they've done in the last week, I thought, "Holy Cow!" They stay super busy. I guess we don't do enough.

Then I started to really think about it. What have WE done since school let out?
Well, not much really, just...

-Michael's birthday party

-We had Matthew's birthday party here.

-3 baseball games.

-2 closing ceremonies (on seperate nights)

-1 more closing ceremony tonight

-3 sleepovers

-a week of VBS

-babysat 4 kids all week

-babysat Greg and Missy's 4 kids one night

-Andrew went to New Orleans for wrestling camp

-Four of us headed to Houston Sunday (my nephew was ordained a Deacon)

-Bobby and I had Swedish massages and dinner last night. :)

- And tomorrow we head to Baton Rouge.

Whew! We did more than I thought we did.

Hey Baby!

So, I knew my van was dirty. I really did. But I was trying to wait until all of my trips to the baseball park were done before washing it.
Well, last week I had to drive into town and as I got ready to hop in the van, I noticed this.....

Not "Wash Me" or my children's names (which I am accustomed to seeing). No. I drove all over town with "Hey Baby" on the back of my mini-van. I hope I gave at least one person a laugh. :)

In an effort to blog more often, I do have to "imitate" my friends. I know I'm pathetic! ;) But imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. It just proves that I am reading your blogs.

LogoThere are
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

So, hubby's last name is not too popular in the U.S. Of course, it was kinda funny when we lived in Kansas. In our home town we take for granted that everyone knows how to pronounce it AND spell it (as long as you let them know what letter it starts with, two completely different spellings). But in Kansas, no one knew it! Then again, when we moved to Kansas I will still unsure of the correct way to pronounce it. So trying to teach our friends who had never heard it was difficult for me at first. I have come to believe that we do pronounce it wrong, but everyone does, so it's okay. haha

Brian is our most popular kid. Sharing his name with 26 people in the U.S! Spencer's result is 1! One person in the U.S. with that name. Everyone else falls somewhere in between.

However, the results are not accurate at all. My maiden name doesn't come up at all! I have always known that it was a very unique last name, especially since I had never heard it except in my own close relatives. So when I entered my father's name which is also his father's name, the result was 0, and I can think of 26 right off the top of my head. Oh well! It was fun!

Thanks Lisa!

Let's Race!

64 words

Speed test

So, I tried and I tried. This was the best I could do. I'm pretty impressed with some of the numbers y'all have been achieving.

Then I found Type Racer. It is similar in the fact that you type as fast as you can to improve words per minute, but better. You actually race against other people. Making it more fun and more addictive. You type a paragraph, so they make you correct your mistakes, and use punctuation and Capitalize. Yes, while you are racing.

I thought I was doing pretty well in my races, placing 1st or 2nd frequently. Then suddenly I scored 66 wpm in a race. I then found out that I was bumped up to the mega-racer category. Holy Cow! I consistently placed last. I wanna go back to the slower group where I was doing better. I just can't compete with 137 wpm! I mean really, that's more than 2 words per second.
