Fireball - 08/25/14

  I don't know about you, but the start of school is kicking our collective bums.  Boy, has it been hard setting the alarm, sticking to a morning schedule, getting up and out on time, and having a consistent bedtime.

  Summer seemed to breeze by faster than I ever recall and here we are again... staring smack dab down the barrel of a new school year.

  What's helped us the first couple of weeks is a crazy little song with a catchy big beat.    It's called Fireball.    We are wearing this song out... It's our wake up call, it's our morning anthem, it's our carpool line crusade.  Hubs came in blasting the Pitbull tune the first day of school and everyone popped up out of bed, started dancing and we haven't stopped.  It seems to be the only thing that can get us going in the morning aside from coffee, but I can't give my kids that yet... (or can I?)

   Hope you enjoy coming along as we drop the kids off. (WATCH VIDEOS: Part 1 | Part 2)  We often have animal encounters (turkeys, deer, cows, horses) along the way as you'll notice in the video and as I've referenced in the previous blog Let Your Light Shine

    I'd love to hear how you're settling into a new school year ---- Any tips you have for smooth sailing in the morning or any healthy lunch ideas and of course any secrets to getting your crew up and moving.  Share your quirky moments with me on Facebook or Twitter @StacyCase_ 

     Here's to good grades and lots of laughs!! :)

ESCALATOR-PANTS

SOMERVILLE, Mass. (AP) -- It's awfully cold in the Boston area to go without pants. Transit officials say a commuter riding the "T" lost his trousers to an escalator. A spokesman for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority tells the Boston Herald the man's pants got caught in the escalator. The commuter wasn't hurt, but he was left standing in his shorts while his trousers were stuck at the bottom of the escalator. Transit officials are urging commuters to be mindful of loose clothing.

DOG BREEDS-NYC

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Big Apple is giving little Frenchies some love. The French bulldog is now the most popular breed in New York City. The American Kennel Club says the flat-faced, bat-eared little dogs move past the bulldog to the top spot. The AKC says the rest of the top five in NYC are Labrador retrievers, German shepherds and golden retrievers. Nationally, Labs stay number-one for a record 24th year.

COCA-COLA BOTTLE

ATLANTA (AP) -- It's the real thing -- but is it real art? The curvy Coca-Cola bottle is being celebrated by an Atlanta art museum. The High Museum is opening an exhibit tomorrow to mark the 100th anniversary of the iconic Coke bottle. Visitors will be able to see original designs, a prototype of the 1915 bottle and the work of artists who have been inspired by the now-classic bottle. "The Coca-Cola Bottle: An American Icon at 100" runs through October 4.

NEW BABY ORCA

SEATTLE (AP) -- Scientists are seeing the splash of little whale fins. A third baby orca has been spotted off the coast of Washington state. Brad Hanson, a biologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, says the baby killer whale looks great and is very active. It's the third baby born to whale pods in recent months in the area. But the experts warn the orca population is still dangerously low.
