This post is bragging on my OTHER kids -
My Students!I'm around these kids so much -that I've just adopted them all - LOL! That's the perk of teaching - meeting and getting to know and love the different kids that I teach! Or they teach me...! Every day is different and new at school! (Remind me of this on "bad" days... okay!)
In art class this week - we're painting ROCKS! We're using our imagination to create something out of a rock! This is one of their favorite projects that we do in the spring! With all the testing, spring sports and just the "ending" of school - this works well with wacky schedules!
Speaking of sports - at CHS - our spring sports (golf, tennis, softball, baseball, and track) have really excelled! We've had play-offs for most of these sports. This weekend, our baseball team - they are doing so good this year - are playing in an area tournament (3 games) in Odessa in "area play-offs" - we're hoping for a trophy there! And our track is taking a big group and headed to Austin for the State Track Meet there. We're hoping for GOLD there also! Here's a pic for the Thursday morning send-off by the student body. Good luck CHS STUDENTS - U R AWESOME!
Next is a TRUE INSPIRATION!
Dustin Williams, son of Keith and Larissa Williams was diagnosed with "non-hodgkin's lymphoma" (He's 16 years old) a couple of months ago. After his first round of chemo at MD Anderson - his hair was beginning to fall out - SO! His dad shaved his head, along with others - including Dustin, himself, some of Dustin's friends and Dustin's little brother - SO SWEET! He's headed back to Houston today for his 2nd round of chemo. LOVE this kid and his family - super, special people. Please say a prayer that all goes well for Dustin and his family this next week. We believe and are praying for a complete recovery from this disease. His body has responded very well to his first treatment and his tumor has "melted" - God answers prayers! (Here's Dustin in the striped shirt on the right - along with friends from CHS)
Hope you are having a great week! We started out with SUMMER weather (high 90's) and today it's 60 degrees - argh! Texas - if you don't like the weather, just wait - it'll change! Hug the ones you love - REAL tight! Thanks for dropping by!
