Is March really almost over? This has been a crazy month - very social and very busy. This weekend is the Ladies' Retreat with church friends - we're all driving about two hours north of ATL for Friday night and Saturday. We do a lot of singing and bonding, and I think there's a talent show that involves lip-synching to Vanilla Ice. :) Steve will be hanging out at home with the guys. A bunch of them are getting together for a BBQ and possibly a golf game. I think Steve's just happpy to not have to do anything baby-related for an entire weekend.

Here's some before, during and after pics of our new floors. They've been down a week and we love them! I couldn't get them to post in order so the light wood and carpet is the "old" and anything dark wood is what we had put down. We have several rugs that fill the space as well now. The dogs are learning they can't run on them now, they're much slicker than the old floors. Harley ends up spread eagle several times during the day out of excitement, he'll learn soon enough!

Baby Toys!

Here are the latest and greatest...and final...toys for Baby Bella. We received a pack 'n' play from Steve's coworkers, and today we grabbed a bouncer and bathtub. She can come anytime now!

School Lockdown

My middle school was on lockdown for about 2 hours this morning. The police got a tip that some students were going to bring a gun to school. They ended up grabbing two male students who had an unloaded handgun and found a third guy at home who had more guns with him. It all went down very undramatically, but I guess it could've been a lot worse. Our teachers and students handled it really well. The rest of our day has been pretty pointless - our front office has been mobbed with parents coming to check out their kids. I only have 5 kids in my class right now. Such fun! And here I thought I was moving to suburbia and getting away from weapons and drugs. Why is it always the white kids that end up being the crazy ones?
