All the talk about Olympic swimmer, Michael Phelps 10,000 to 12,000 calories a day is not news to the mom of seven boys especially now that football has started. I think I may need to look for a sponsor just to make it through the next 4 months.

Yesterday morning I made, ham and cheese omelets and toast for breakfast. Joshua ate, a three egg omelet, with extra ham, cheese and a half cup of salsa, 4 slices of toast and two bowls of cereal. Isaac ate a two egg omelet and 2 slices of toast. Fortunately Jacob slept through breakfast. I figured between all of them we went through a box of cereal, a loaf of bread, a 1/2 lb of ham, 1/4 lb of cheese, 1 dozen eggs and a 1/2 gallon of milk, and Adorable Hubby and #1 didn't eat!!! Scary!

In other news, #1 is involved in ballroom dance. The class he took this summer had a recital. here are videos and pictures his partner is Lyssa her family and ours have been friends for many moons, she's a gorgeous girl and an incredible dancer. Jacob is the big guy in a black T-shirt he's such a cutie, and considering that he has had less then a year of ballroom training, he's an incredible dancer.

School has started. today is the first day of everyone but #6 who starts kindergarten next week attending. Hooray! I think, between getting teenagers out of bed and lunches and carpools and exercise and school supplies and disclosure forms and homework starting again... It's a lot of work!

I am SO impressed! That was just so awesome! I am way excited that he is into this, he will certainly enjoy the benefits of being a dancing guy! (what girl doesn't wish for her guy to dance?)

Watch out mom!

Oh almost forgot... yeah, about that food issue...GOOD LUCK SISTAH! I only had three boys and I thought we would need some sort of government grocery drop from helicopters, or CARE, or maybe just have the truck from the store stop by the house... oy.

Dancing, real dancing, is so beautiful and I hope he is as proud of himself as you are. What a heart he must have; well done, mom.

Yeah... good luck with the food thing, and thanks for the heads up to us newbies coming up behind in line. We've got 2 boys (9 & 4)... I'll start stocking rations up now!

I'm so looking forward to the whole food thing, sigh. I can already sense what it's going to be like.
