I have not been sick all year until now. I have a cold and it is just miserable to have a cold and teach all day. I stayed home yesterday, but I think I was worse today. I had to stop all the time and blow my nose or sneeze. I loved staying home yesterday. As much as I love my job I would rather stay home. Oh well, maybe some day. Well, I'm off to get some rest. I hope everyone else is having a better week!

The little boy's brother is still on the ventilator. The mom doesn't want the doctors to take him off yet. She is still hoping for a change in the baby. The doctors did say that if the baby does wake up he will have severe brain damage. Keep Praying!!!

Please Pray

One of the hardest jobs as being a teacher is all the emotional things that go on with my children's family lives. It breaks my heart to see some of the issues that go on. I love all my kids so much and I hate to see them go through hard times. There is a little boy in my afternoon class who had a baby brother. He was about 5 or 6 months old and he stopped breathing last week. He was blue by the time someone found him. He was brought back to life and was on a ventilator, but the doctors said there was no chance for him to live. I'm pretty sure they took this precious baby off the ventilator and he has gone to a better place. Please keep this family in your prayers at this difficult time in their lives. I hope I can be an example and an encouragement to this family as they go through this tragedy in their life.

I love Fall Break!

Pam and I taking a break from our walk

Casey and I standing by the building Kennedy assassination took place

I had a much needed break this past week! On Thursday and Friday I didn't do much which was fun! Saturday morning we woke up bright and early and met Casey's parents in Dallas. We ate way too much food, saw the JFK assassination building, went to the King Tut exhibit, and went to the Galleria. We went to the King Tut exhibit and found out we had 2 hours until the next showing. We had already paid for parking so we decided to walk to the place where the assassination took place. We didn't know it would take over 30 minutes to walk there!!! We were very tired by the time we got back. We had a fun weekend with Casey's parents and are so thankful for them! Sorry I didn't take too many pictures!

I'm Addicted

Does anyone else watch this show Jon and Kate plus 8? I love watching it every week. It comes on TLC on Monday nights. I am just fascinated with how they do everything with 8 kids! They also play re-runs during the week that I watch too if I have time...even though I've seen most of them already. I know, I'm a dork but I love it!
I am on Fall Break right now and loving it! The kids and I both were needing a break really bad! This weekend we're doing to Dallas to meet Casey's parents there and hang out. I will try to post some pics when we get back. Tomorrow before we leave though I HAVE to clean our house and do laundry. Have a good rest of the week and weekend!

Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday to me today! I was born on October 8, 1983 at 3:20 in the morning. The 25 years have flown by it seems!!! This morning I woke up to a card and my favorite candy bar (Reeses) on the kitchen cabinet from my wonderful hubby. At lunch my aide from school brought me brownies, made fruit dip, and gave me a gift. It has been a good day so Pre-K kids were good today so that always helps. Tonight I will sit at home by myself while Casey is in class:( I'm thinking about going on a walk and washing my car since it's so nice out! Casey and I are going out on Saturday night to celebrate instead. Once again I don't have any pictures to share. Hopefully Saturday I will have some to post. Have a good rest of the week!!

Homemade Gourmet

I don't know about you but I really don't feel like thinking about what to eat for dinner, finding new things to eat, grocery shopping...the list goes on. One of my parents that I had from last year does this Homemade Gourmet thing at her house once a month. You prepare 7 meals in one night at her house and come home and freeze them. The meals feed 6 people, so when I come home I split them again. I now have 14 meals in my freezer! It is a great thing to do and very reasonable. Let me know if you are interested in going to the next one and we can car pool.
