...coming to our house.

No, not the two-legged type.  Not the four-legged type. Not of the structural type.  This is in the form of a new woodwind.

My husband's new toy

My husband and oldest went to the band meeting last night and got the child all signed up.  They came home terribly excited and talked up a blue streak.  The local music store offers "rental" on student band instruments, however, it is highway robbery, as my husband put it.  We had pretty much decided before this meeting, that Josh would play his dad's old sax, and dad would get a new one (my hubby plays in a local civic band and has for about 22 years).  So the search for the new sax began.

Mike was actually going to settle for a cheaper model, but he plans to play in this band until he rolls over in his grave (my words, not his), so I told him to get a really good horn that was reasonably priced.  I actually am the one who found this one.

Hubby is one happy camper and is ordering it today.

Hubby is going to Scotland the end of this month on business.  This is the trip that we've known about for a while, but thought was cancelled.  So I'll be single-parenting for the last week.  And it's the week of mid-terms.

Pray for me.

I am planning a "trip with the girls" in November.  Should be loads of fun and I'm terribly excited.

I have two stories to beta.  One from [livejournal.com profile] jeconais  and one from [livejournal.com profile] aggiebell90 .  I am hopeful to get both out this weekend.

Thanks to those who shared helpful hints on geography/map reading.  Matt is doing a bit better with that, thanks to your help.

I have preschool open house with the youngest today.  It'll be a really good time.  He is so terribly excited, he can't stand it.

I am glad it's Friday. It has been hell week trying to get things done for the "back to school" time.

It's good to be back on LJ on a regular basis.  I've missed you all alot.

(I like bouncy!Hugh, don't you? He's quite yummy!)

...April, June and November.

New month.  New challenges.

Son 2 continues to forget his homework.  I am trying to find new ways to help him make sure he has his backpack packed completly at the end of the day.

Son 1 has decided to play in the school band.  Nevermind the fact he's had never picked up an instrument (except a guitar) prior to last night.  My husband is so proud, and trying to steer the young one to the alto saxophone.  There is a reason behind his madness -- since he plays alto sax (he's in a community band), he wants our son to play his old sax so he can get a new one.  I don't want to totally influence our son -- I want him to pick what he wants to play.  My parents influenced ("don't do that!") way too many decisions I made growing up that should have been my decisions.  I want my children to have a bit more "decision freedom" than I did.  Anyway, our son and my husband were locked in a back bedroom playing saxophone last night.

Or rather, our son was blowing into the instrument and it was making some...interesting sounds.

Son 3 was bent out of shape that he couldn't try, too.

Son 4's preschool teacher comes for her home visit tonight.  That should be interesting.  This teacher was our first preschool teacher when Son 1 was in preschool.  She was our first, and she'll be our last. *sniff*  Preschool starts Sept. 12th.

Starting to weed through submissions at PhoenixSong.  They close tonight.  We have something like 40 submissions to sort through.  I've gone through about 12 so far.

*Hugs* to [livejournal.com profile] velvethope  and her mom...I hope that she's doing okay.  *sporks VH's mom's company*.

*Hugs* also to a way-to-busy [livejournal.com profile] aggiebell90 .  I hope your life slows down soon.

And in a moment of insanity, I signed up for a ficlet challenge for [livejournal.com profile] hpgw_otp . *waves to [livejournal.com profile] jenadamson * Jen helps run this community, and I had a weak moment.
