Battening Down the Hatches

Tropical Storm Fay is expected to move through our area tomorrow. The local weather is predicting 12"-15" of rain as well as 30-40 mph winds. Flash flood watches are already in place as Eufaula is a lake town. Secretly I am excited about Fay's arrival - I really should have been a storm chaser...

Anna Kate had a great first week of school. Her teacher said she is doing great and is so sweet. What a relief! On Thursday Anna Kate was the 'Hoppy Helper', which really means the class helper. She couldn't wait to tell me what all she got to do. So far, so good :c)

Tomorrow Renee' and I are supposed to take the girls (AK & Anslee) to register for ballet classes, however it really depends on the weather. Registration is from 10:00-12:00 which is in the time frame of Miss Fay making appearance - I hope we can brave the storm to get the girls signed up. They are so excited to take dance together. They really are BFFs.

Tonight Anna Kate was playing in her playroom while I did some laundry when she comes walking out to the den and says, "Mama, I want to take a bath." Huh? She never wants to take a bath, so I looked down at her and this is what my child looked like...
No wonder she wanted to take a bath. (Wow, I see a strong resemblance to her mother twenty years ago!)
