After working several part time jobs Pooker got her first full time job recently. We are so excited for her and very proud of her. She knows that she will end up as a nurse and so she has pursued a hospital job for a little while now. We hear that they are actually hard to get . She had several interviews and back ground checks. I know that they are lucky to have her.
She will be in school for nursing as well as working. She will be pushing herself for sure but she is so happy doing it. We see a very happy young woman and loving the parking spot from the employee garage. Even better we love having her around on the weekends. Congrats Pooker!

We got to talking and started remembering memorial day a few years back (2009). Before going to the table for our big BBQ meal I realized that we were no longer pregnant. I wrote about the loss then (click here to visit.)
This is an old loss but as we talked about it Jumba got very upset. When it happened he was to young to remember but now he just realized how much fun it would have been to have a baby brother. He struggled with the sadness and wanted to do something. The girls decided they would all make birthday cards for David with Jumba. The cards were placed in the family Bible where David can see it.

Our second meet of the year was against the Coles Crossing Crocs. They were a formidable team but again the Cudas were triumphant. I am sure it is that wonderful Coach Goobers and all those wonderful Jr. Coaches. The win was fun. All of the Texas T's swim times were not as good as the week before. I think the kiddos were all fighting a cold.
We all hope one of us is fast enough to break a team record and get the family name on the record board - but if it doesn't happen we will live. The great news is that the Cudas won, we enjoyed time with some wonderful friends, and we celebrated our kids working real hard.

This happens every so many weeks, I become overwhelmed with the laundry. It takes so much work to keep up with laundry much less catch up. I had enough and I packed the laundry into 14 of those huge buckets and I headed to a laundromat.

When something belongs to mom is comes with a target on it. Mom's soda/water is available for anyone and everyone. Mom's phone begs for pictures to be taken and new screen savers to be added. It is often a surprise to me when I look at my phone and find someone has left me a present.
