A Little of This and That- EDITED

Edited: For all of you NWA ladies, Geraldi's restaurant is located off University Street, close to Powerhouse. It is in the same little plaza as Wes's BBQ beneath the little apartment complex with the duck pond that just recently burnt down. Know where that is?


Harbor William's new favorite toy of late has been his big orange car. Thankfully, our house is tiled (minus the bedrooms), which makes pushing him around easy!






Harbor's crib is lowered as low as it can go, and poor Harbor is just so tall- close to 31 inches and only 10 months old! Since he is so tall, he loves chewing on his crib. We bought his crib brand new and were excited to find something that we liked that could transition into a toddler bed. Now that he is chewing on everything in sight, we get a good laugh thinking about him sleeping in that full bed when is 15 with teeth marks all over it. Ha, ha!





Things at the McCash house are going well! We are just so busy that I wonder where the days go most of the time. David loves being out of school and working at his new job. He took a vacation day this past Friday with two of the other engineers at the plant and test drove motorcycles all day at Bikes, Blues, and BBQ, which is a big rally we have here in NWA. Our motorcycle is paid off, so I told him not to get any big ideas. : )

The Jones Center called him again to co-teach a "Daddy Boot Camp" class for new and expectant dads, so he had a full day class he taught recently. He has another motocycle class he plans to attend in another state in a few weeks and is looking forward to the ride there with his friends. I'm so happy he has a fun hobby that allows him to concentrate on things other than work. He also has a camping trip in the works for October... he is a busy boy, that's for sure! He still manages to give Harbor a bath everynight and make dinner most nights, which I really appreciate.

We are still riding our bicycles quite frequently and Harbor enjoys the fresh air. So do I, really. It makes my day feel so much more worthwhile to just get out after work and breathe good, clean air. School is in full swing for me. I am busy giving the DRA assessment to my kiddos this week and have PT conferences on Thursday. I have a really great group of kiddos this year and just enjoy having a fufilling career to go to each day. In this economy, I feel so lucky to make a good living. I know so many people, our friends included, who have not been so lucky, and I just feel so blessed.








Rachel, my cousin, and I both share September birthdays, and we usually have a joint family birthday party. We celebrated at a local Italian eatery, Geraldi's, and then all went bowling. Rachel turned 19, and I, 28. These pictures are not the best, but I made her a little Razorback tote bag since she plays in the Razorback Marching Band. I thought it would fun to have a little bag to carry her music in, etc.. for away games and the like. I have, unfortunately, not been taking pictures of my craft projects, so I am thankful my mom snapped a few of her bag. I cut out the black and white hog myself without a stencil, so I was pretty proud. If you live in the Natural state, you have no doubt tried to doodle a hog once or twice, and I am afraid, it is just not as easy at it looks. Ha! (For me anyway!)






















I hope this week is a good one for you and your family!
