So for all the curious family people out there I think my interview went as well as it could.  I feel okay about it and now I just have to wait and see.  The supervisor that is hiring said she will be contacting the applicants that they were most impressed with for second interviews sometime after Wednesday (they are doing the first round of interviewing today and tomorrow).  So not too much to report except I bought a cute new business shirt and skirt set (with new shoes) that I thought looked good so I have some cute new clothes out of it at the very least.

New game for the blog…

 - by Hooper Family

So I have decided to make up a new game for my blog.  It is called guess where Jeanne is going to get called on her mission.  My first guess (and one I think Jeanne might enjoy and be okay with) is Australia.  Think of all the nice Australian guys she could teach and listen to talk and look at (okay maybe that mission would be too distracting).  (Ah Australian guys……..)

Craig thinks Jeanne should go to Japan because the Transformers are Japanese and she could meet Optimus Prime.  Callie just repeats over and over Jeanne leaving, Jeanne leaving so she is not very good at this game get.

So other then Jeanne’s big news most of our holiday weekend has been spent cleaning up our house and rearranging furniture so that our new bedroom and living room furniture will fit when it is delivered on Friday.  I can’t wait for the king size bed.  Now the dogs, cats, and kids will fit better without Rob and I both falling out of the bed when they all want to cuddle.

Oh yeah we did go to the zoo on Saturday with Jacki, Jeanne, Jasmine, and Jordan.  The kids always enjoy the zoo and Craig’s favorite python is still right where he left him last time he was at the zoo.  (He is always worried that the snake might not be there to look at.)

My job interview is in the morning so we shall hope for the best there.  Then once I know if I got the job or not it is on to finding new daycare places for the kids that will be okay with my work schedule and close to Craig’s school for when Jeanne leaves…… (and yes I agree with Jasmine it will not be her because she needs to go do her own thing in the world for a while).

Sorry it has been a while… no real reason for not posting

Hello people.  We have all been somewhat distracted which leads to me not thinking post a blog already Jessi.  Which is funny because when the rest of you go this long without a new post I am the one thinking POST A NEW SECTION ON YOUR FREAKING BLOG ALREADY.  But anyway on to catching up on all the comings and goings of the Hoopers.

Craig played his last T-Ball game of the season today.  It went fast.  I am sure your are all dying to know if he started liking it more or participating more in the games.  Here is a pic of today’s game for all you curious people….


This is Craig’s version of playing the out field.  Should Rob or I try to let him stand (or sit) out there by himself (any time this season) he would run off and hug a tree or something.  This way at least kept him near his team and he would occasionally (once every couple of games) try to catch a ball.  He still likes to bat but the out field was not his thing.  He thinks he wants to try soccer now but we will wait until he is a little older and more focused before attempting that one.

And just so she has equal blog time here is a cute one of Callie the cheerleader from today’s game….  She also liked running off from the side lines (but not to hug trees- she just liked running away and watching us try to catch up to her).


And just for fun here is a pic of Uncle Jared’s version of cheer-leading from today’s game….


Rob and the kids got me three rose bushes for our front yard for Mother’s Day (thanks Aunt Jacki for supervising the selection processes).  We got them planted and I am excited for them to start getting bigger and the flowers to grow.  My lilac bush (last year’s birthday present) is looking good this year and starting to grow bigger (which means- yeah we did not kill it) and hopefully in another year or so it will be able to have some nice blossoms on it.

So I saw a job I was interesting in posted on the State job website and I applied.  It is located at our State Office with the audit team.  I am hopeful about my chances so keep your fingers crossed for me.  The interviews should be soon because they were only taking applicants until last Thursday.  I already know a few people from my office that applied so I have some good competition.  If I get it is would mean some instate travel but would also mean a new challenge and new stuff to learn which I think I need right now.  My current job has become very routine and has not been very challenging of late.  I will let you all know how it turns out.

I will stick some other cute pics on the album page of the website for you all. 

P.S.  — Aunt Jacki we would like to invite you to go to the zoo with us next Saturday (24th) since T-ball is over… Are you busy???
