Kedzie sleeps

We just love the new little addition to our family. She is so much fun and so darn adorable.
She is extremely curious, hyper, energetic, and all puppy!
One of the cutest things about her is that because she is so lively, she crashes frequently, completely wiped out.

Here are some of her adorable...and somewhat strange sleeping positions.

It's fun because we're both always so sleepy these days!

Sleeping on my brother's amp in the backseat of his car.

Fast asleep while I do homework.

This breed is known for being somewhat catlike. :)

She literally slept like this for about 30 minutes in the car. :)

Top Ten Things I'm Going to Miss -#10

Last one!

#10- 90.1 WMBI

The last thing on my countdown is something that has been a part of my life since moving to this area in 2001. I listen to this radio station constantly and as lame as it sounds, I feel like I know the hosts! I've had the pleasure of visiting the studio a couple of times too and I get all giddy when I see the "celebrities" of this radio station around church or at various Moody-related events. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be getting the WMBI WiFi radio which lets you listen to the Chicago station anywhere in the world! :)

If you don't listen to this station, I encourage you try it!

Top Ten Things I'm Going to Miss -#9

Almost done!

#9- Diversity

This sounds kind of lame, but I really will miss this! Obviously, Chicago offers diversity that just isn't in Moline. Besides the actual city of Chicago, the suburbs are quite diverse as well. Many people in our apartment complex speak other languages and over half of my third graders speak a language other than English when they go home each night. I love looking across my classroom and seeing children from China, Korea, Georgia (the country), Russia, and many more places around the world. 

I will truly miss this!

Top Ten Things I'm Going to Miss -#8

Continuing on...(I'm getting a little bored of this series, to be honest). :)

#8- Trinity Community Philharmonic Orchestra

People always ask me if I watch American Idol. My answer is, no, not since the first season. Why? Because since the fall of 2001, I have played in the TCPO every Tuesday night during a school year!

It has been a pleasure playing horn in this orchestra, first as a student for four years and then as a community member for four years. I have enjoyed playing under three conductors and with many different people in the horn section throughout the years. It's been so fun to get to play regularly with this group.

I wish them all the best!
