So, I have recently been told I am a blog slacker. I was doing so well for a while but now I dont seem to know how to complete a sentence on this thing. We are doing nothing but seem to be moving constantly. The boys have had two basketball games a week, school, homework, church, and not to mention we have to feed them sometime in between all this, and hold down a job.

Dawson had one TOTAL melt down on the way to school this week. Over something totally retarded but he was all out of sorts. He ended up having to walk to class with my mom, and we were all three worked up and stressed out.

Chase has seemed to have a good week. He began to get "worked" up tonight. But I think he was tired and had been good as long as possible. I just tried to hold my tongue and get him into bed as soon as possible. Chase did have an exciting night on Thursday. We had a basketball game and did not play very well in the first half. For some reason Chase decided to shoot the ball, which he throws like a brick....It sounds like the backboard is going to shatter. Anyway, he was bringing the ball into the front court and took 3-4 steps over half court and launched the ball.....AND IT WENT IN. I so wish I had a camera because his face was priceless. He asked me if it was 5 points!!!! Everyone was very excited, which only made him smile even more.

I promise all my blog friends I will try to do better with the blog this week. I want to try to post alot of the funny things Chase seems to be coming up with lately.....We will see.

It was a GREAT day...

If you have been following previous post, you will know Chase has been having some trouble at school. Well, today he had a GREAT day. His teacher was impressed, I think even Chase was impressed. When I asked him what happened today, he said he was just trying REALLY hard. If you are not a parent, you might not understand the joy I feel tonight. I was very excited Chase and Mrs. Ward had a great day and we are going to strive for more...

A little quote from Chase tonight: We were praying and he said, "Geegus, I want to pray for he people I love and the people I like". What a great little guy.

Catch up...

So, it has been a few days since I posted last. We were out of town this weekend. We went to Jonesboro to watch our friend Caroline play basketball at ASU. The boys had a great time. We stayed in a hotel with an indoor pool, so they pretty much loved it.
Chase had a rough week at school last week. He had his first offical visit to the principles office. He kicked 2 other boys during the day and I think his teacher, which is GREAT by the way, just had enough. We have had him tested with OT and the test definately show he has some sensory issues, which may make him more vurnable to behavior problems. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THERE ARE NO EXCUSES FROM ME. Chase needs to behave and we are working on getting that to happen. Just keep praying for us, and that we all know what to do to help Chase.

We had another basketball game. The Ramsey boys did not have their best night, but the Jazz won. I have some new pictures but they are on a camera I dont really know how to use.....Hopefully I will get them off soon.

We have also continued to love our webcam. Lindsey and Justin got a new computer that had a webcam.....She called me on Tuesday morning and we got it all setup and got to visit for 30 mintues. It was great. When the boys got home they both got to tell Ninny about their week. I think she was more excited than them. (they just like to see themselves on the screen)

We have moved into the 21st century at the Ramsey Household. My sister, Jill, gave me a Web Cam for Christmas. She had been telling me about all the people she communicates with over the net, and thought it was a good way for the boys and I to see her and Vicki. Well, I got everything loaded on our computer and the cam all set up and tested. Dawson has been wanting to "get on the webcam" for a few days. Although, I am not sure he knew what it was all about. But we did get everything together and Jill called us via Skype last night. Dawson and I started the conversation and had a few bugs to workout. But it did not take long and we were seeing each other and having a great time. The boys quickly starting acting up and being silly. Chase realized he could actually see HIMSELF on the screen as well. And that of course he loved. Jill and Vicki did not get much information out of the boys, due to their silliness. But the three of us had a great visit. I LOVED IT. I loved getting to see them, even if it was via the net. I miss them and hate they live so far away. But I can hear Jill now saying, "there is life outside of Saline county......" We have already planned to try another call on Sunday. I hope the boys will behave better, so that they can tell Jill and Vicki about school and basketball.

We do have another game tonight, and I borrowed a friends camera, so hopefully I get more pics.

Not too much, just busy

The past few days have been around the house, but nothing too exciting. The boys both had birthday parties to attend over the weekend. Chase went to Chuck-E-Cheese on Friday with a boy from his class. He took five dollars and I think he had it spent within minutes....But he had a great time. Dawson's party was Sunday after church, and he went to Play Time Pizza. We have not been there as a family so he was very excited.

On Sunday at church there was a great group that performed during service and then did a concert for service that night. Testify was the name of the group. They sang "I want to see Jesus", and it was UNBELIVABLE!!! They could have stood and sand that song for hours on end and I would have stayed for every minute. If you have a chance look them up, it will be well worth it.

We had basketball practice last night and the boys are all improving. Matt works well with them.

Maybe more exciting things to come..................

Game # 2

Well, basketball is now in full force, since the Holidays are over. We had our second game tonight. We won 26 to 22, even we don't keep score???? The game was pretty rough and out of control, almost humorous at times, but we pulled it out. We played the team that is probably the best team in the league. Alot of the boys were on Chase's team last year and the boys are friends with most of them. I was very proud of them. Dawson did not have his best shooting game. He through up alot of junk. He scored 10 points, but if he had made half of the junk he threw up at the rim he would have scored 30!!!!! Chase had 2 points and a couple of steals and rebounds....He is a mad man on the court. He wants to fight for the ball. AND I MEAN FIGHT for the ball.

My camera does not take very good pictures in the gym but I got a couple off a Iphone in the gym.

There are two players not in this picture. Before the season is over I will try to get everyone.

GO JAZZ!!!!!!!!
