The summer is going by fast so I am looking forward to every single day. Sam put his tank by his bed and said he has a new nightlight. This will keep him in his room for sure. So that is what we are up to here in the world of Fletcher365.

He went out and bought himself a tank yesterday. He bought live rock (whatever that means) and sand from the fish store. Okay, he is uber excited and it is nice to see. He can't put fish in it for a month. He did find some kind of snail in his live rock.
He put it on top of his dresser and it is what you see when you look in his room from the living room. Okay. I kinda like it so far and there are NO FISH in it yet. I'm proud of him for doing his homework, managing it so it is not an impulse buy, and learning more about it. I can't argue with that. So now we have 2 dogs, 1 snail and the anticipation of some cool fish here at Fletcher365.

I didn't get plastic eggs. We didn't have an egg hunt. There were no hard boiled eggs. We didn't have a fancy dinner. We DID have rain. We DID have fun. We DID go to church. We DID feel like it was Easter......and there was candy.
This year, I decided to do it a little differently. As the Easter Bunny, I get to decide don't I? The boys are big enough that they kind of know what is going on. But, they are not too old for something fun on Easter.
I bought this machine, that you put in the freezer, and you make popcycles, fudgecycles, and anything else you want to freeze in the shape of a popcycle. Chase is having a ball with it. We looked up recipes on the web. The recipe book in the store was $16. We found some great, healthy recipes and we are trying them all. It takes less than 10 minutes. So much fun and so good to eat. So glad the Easter Bunny thought of it.

I was asked last week to comment on this story for FOX 4 in Dallas. It stirred up quite the controversy.

The whole youth group for middle school was there and Sam and Chase have a few friends that were there. I wish they could go every Wednesday night to youth group to be with their friends and make new friends, but that is the night with their dad.
We have talked quite a lot about Baptism, Communion, and the boys are developing a good relationship with Father Clint, Erik and Mike who are the leaders of the youth at church. They are very likeable family men and I am glad the boys have them as role models.
After the ceremony, the boys and I went to Corner Bakery with Buffy and her girls. It was so nice. Then we went home to plant this tree in the backyard. It is a Red Maple to acknowledge the day of their Baptism. I got it at Big Lots for $15 and it is taller than Alex! Now that is tall. We all helped dig the hole and put it in the ground. I am excited to watch it grow. What it means to me is that the kids are growing into great gentleman (okay, that is a stretch but it is my hope). I want them to know that they are leaders and to not be afraid. That is all about being a part of the family in Fletcher365.

Here is the interview for Channel 33 from Friday night. The cameraman came to my house to film me for the news that night. Amber took this picture. She was already dressed to kill. As soon as Brian, the cameraman, was done, I changed clothes and then we were both dressed to kill. My hair looks great doesn't it? I did not do it myself. Wish I could.
So as we get ready for school tomorrow, Sam tried to get back into the routine of getting ready for the next day. He started the shower and then just forgot about it. So that is why there is so much fog in my bathroom. Sam doesn't make that mistake too often. It is usually Chase or me. So we are thinking there is a science experiment in there somewhere.
I promise to blog more frequently. I don't travel for three weeks. That makes it a lot easier to get things done at home and get through my "to do" list which includes blogging every day. We have had a Happy Easter here at that is what it is like tonight at Fletcher365.

http://christchurchplano.org/ It's official. Chase and Sam are scheduled to be baptized on Wednesday, April 11th. Wednesday night is the night they hold youth group at church and there are a few of the youth wanting to be baptized. Just like with Alex, I'm going to invite the families in our lives who support our spiritual journey. Last time, Alex was so moved by his friends being there for this great event. It will be informal. It will be personal. It will be moving. So happy to have them old enough to understand it and old enough to remember this step. Unfortunately I travel a lot in April but it is fortunate that I am not traveling on this very important day.

This is his trip http://www.ncobs.org/course/40 and he will be one of 12 kids from ages 16 to 18. He is very excited and so am I. I want this experience for all three kids if I can. This is perfect timing for Alex. So I will continue to work my butt off to pay what isn't covered with a scholarship. But I will do it because this is a priceless opportunity for Alex to learn what he is made of.

I've been in Phoenix for two days working. The boys have been with their dad with the typical activities at night. I was gone just for 24 hours overnight. The kind of trip I like the best. I don't want to be away from home very long. I'm proud of the boys for handling themselves well while I am gone. Here is a picture of what I was doing out of town. I'm on FOX so much that when I have a chance with another network, I'm taking it. I am averaging one appearance a week. That's pretty good. And no, I'm not shaking my finger at her. I'm just talking with my hands.
