Zuma Beach

This summer we got a chance to go to Zuma Beach with Kathy and Eddie. Here are some of the photos from our good time



Wednesday September the 16th was Ryders first day of preschool, and I got to go with him. The parents have to help out in the classroom four times during the session, so of course I set up my day as the first day of school. Ryder was so excited to go, he has been asking to go to school since he was about 3!!! I think it was everything he had hoped for and more!! In fact he likes it so much he has requested that he get to go all by himself this week..... he just doesn't need me like he used to!!

There are more pictures on my moms camera that I will share later. It is amazing how big he has gotten and how much he has grown up!! I l*ve you "little" man!!

So school is going to have to wait till next semester. Unfortunately, when I went to try to crash my classes, there was not any room for me. The way the school does it is if there are any students that want to add the class, if there is an opening,will be added by their priority registration date. So there were like 10-20 people in each of my classes that wanted to add. And there were about 5 that still had July dates, mine was Aug. 1st at 10:00am. So there was not any room for me this semester. But I will be going down to the school to use their math lab to get a customized lesson plan to help me be better at doing the calculations in my head. There is also supposed to be open testing for Air Traffic Control in January, which I am studying for. So yeah. Looks like it will hopefully be taking off in January =) YAY!!

Muttin Bustin'

Ryder has joined the Rodeo, the sheep riding rodeo that is. Thats right, my little man rode like a pro!!!

I think Matt was more nervous than Ryder was.

In the days before the actual ride, Matt got Ryder all pumped up. He was practicing the fall more than he was the actual holding on. But man, he went down like a pro!!!

Matt was so proud of him. There was another little boy that backed out at the last minuet, but Ryder climbed right on and went for it. Matt even told him that if he didnt want to do it, he just had to say so. But Ryder was sure and stuck to his guns.

Well, he looked way more sure before he did it.

And the prize winning t-shirt..... that he wont stop wearing.


Hi, my name is.....

Christine and im addicted to couponing and sale shopping. Hi Christine.

I guess there could be worse things in life to be addicted to. Here are a few glimpses into the life of a person addicted to couponing and sale shopping.....

Yes, alphabetized coupons.

..... and loot. Just looking at these pictures makes me all happy inside.....


Safety First.....

So a while back we had gone riding with Kathy and Eddie. Nice day, we all had a great time..... Ryder, Kayden and Mason started running down this pretty steep hill..... good times, but of course it always gets more daring..... so Ryder grabs his bike, no helmet. Gives it a try..... SUCCESS!!! No falls or scrapes, we are all cheering. Goes a few more times, no helmet, more cheering. Im pretty sure it was me that suggested the helmet. Ok, helmet on, bike ready, cheers.....


Editors Note: Ryder only suffered minor bruises and continues to ride. Mom on the other hand is severely scared and suffers from a guilty conscience.
