Ahoy there, Matey!

A few weeks ago my mom and grandmother were in town. They took all the kids to McDonald's and got each of them a Happy Meal (of course! what are grandparents for?). I guess "Pirates of the Carribean 3" is the latest, greatest, because all the toys were pirate-y (I know, that's not a word...). Seth's toy was a pirate do-rag with a dangley golden earring. I put it on him just for kicks, assuming he'd yank it off and throw it to the ground, just as he'd been trying to do all winter with his hats. However, it was a HIT! He must've know he looked big and bad in it (and when you're the youngest of five, I guess you need whatever clout you can get).

In other news, I just last night, ordered (hopefully) ALL my school books for next year! Last year, with Seth being a baby and all, I didn't order until...shall I admit it? August, and it was hanging over my head all summer. This year, I tried to get my act togther a little earlier. Free shipping is a nice incentive, 'cause books are HEAVY. I think we saved about $30-$40. So Woohoo! Bring on the summer vacation!

Hey Julie Beth,
My name is Ragan Oswalt and I'm married to Ashley Trice's brother, Chandler Oswalt. I saw your comment on Wondergirl's blog and saw that you were in Ashley and Nathan's church, so I couldn't resist the urge to say something! Embarrassingly, we've only visited Charlotte once since we've been married, and that was last August. It is quite possible that I met you when we were there, but I have to admit that I don't remember. Anyways, just wanted to introduce myself and say hello and that your family is beautiful! Our blog is

Julie Beth,
I am NOT EXPECTING!!! Please don't let that rumor out! ;)I hope you already haven't said something to Ashley!
In my poem, I said, "You never know when AGAIN strikes maternity"
We do want more children, and our baby is 2, so it has been talked about, but not yet!

Thanks for the comment on my blog!r

Ah, Julie! Can I confess that I feel a bit envious that you have ordered your books? Steve and I agreed to wait until closer to the move to order next year's books, but I would LOVE to have that task behind me as well.
