Welcome to Tega Cay

Well I am officially in Charlotte! I got here yesterday to a warm welcome from Julie, Monte, Beckham, and Ainsley. Yesterday I unpacked my over stuffed car and started playing with the kiddos. They are adorable! It amazes me how fast they grow. I went to The City Tavern and got a job there waitressing. As the man that hired me said this is no Wild Wings, we are upscale. I kind of laughed to myself as I didn't see a bunch of redneck regulars and girls walking around in Got Beer? shirts, I clearly noticed it was more fine dinning. I start work on Tuesday morning. I am going to try and see if I can teach swim lessons at the Y and get a free membership. I need to start preparing for the marathon( my official 18 week program starts the first week of August).

Ainsley is talking so much more now. She is so cute when she does her animal sounds. Maybe she will be a zoologist when she grows up! :) She certainly knows her animals!

Today I planned to get up and go to Beckham's soccer camp, but my sleep was too good. I told him I will go tomorrow. I have a new found respect for mothers. We went to the pool today and played for a long time. Beckham was surfing on my legs and Ainsley liked me blowing bubbles underwater for her to pop. I was beat after we got home. I think all of us ended up taking naps. I took some pictures as soon as I find my cable to hook it up to the computer I will upload them!

Now I am debating going to Greenville to help my roomie clean the apartment. Before I left I did what I thought was my share of the cleaning duties, but apparently not. I don't want to not go and be a bad example of Christ's love, but at the same time I don't think I should have to go back and do more than them and spend gas money on an 1 1/2 drive. We all know I am not very confrontational so I am trying to decide what to do...whatever happened to the hardest decision in your life being whether to play sharks and menos or marco-polo?

You are right where you are supposed to be this simmer. Having fun with the Watkins, learning about mothering(and aunting :)),making a little extra dough, keeping in shape and most of all walking where God wants you to be. I'm jealous of your time with the growing grands and Julie and Monte. But soon we will be closer and loving it! Mom
