It's my "Blogoversary"!



Today is the beginning of my 3rd year in "blogging"! We were taught how to "blog" during our 2008 Technology Camp - so I tried it... "Happy Blogoversary"! Truly am surprised that I've kept this up, but with a son four states away going to college and friends everywhere - this has proved to be a great communication for all! Thank you for your support (over 21,000 hits so far - WOW)!


So, what has been on YOUR agenda this week? KV and I have started back to school - the kids will begin on Monday. The summer is "just a memory" - but on to writing a new chapter in the book of life!

Love football on Friday (& Thursday) nights, Fall season is so NICE and cool, the NEWNESS of the school year with new beginnings, new students and a whole new agenda... just to name a few things ahead!





This last weekend - we traveled for a quick get-away for school shopping to Amarillo! We spent the night at the DRURY - we were so impressed! (doesn't take much... LOL!) They provided free night snacks - Hot dogs, baked potatoes, salad (it was our supper!) - 24 hour fountain drinks/popcorn, indoor swimming pool, very nice rooms w/ the works (plasma,frig, mw, cm) - we had a terrance view (over a cotton field and Furr's) and then in the morning - a fabulous breakfast! We will definitely stay there again! Mix food with family entertainment + cheap rates ($100 a night for 4) - we're living the good life! LOL! We were able to get shoes for both boys - gotta love having BOYS (1 pair of shoes for school and 1 pair for church - we're done!) Aric is in a 5 1/2 and Alex is a 9 1/2 size of foot - argh! Andy and KV are both 11 1/2 - so.... I'm sharing life with "big feet" males! 0: hahahaha!

Got in the mood for some paper crafting - FINALLY! It's amazing what can happen when you organize, huh! Found my garage AND my studio! So, I've been creating and decorating "Halloween" cards! Went to a "Stampin Up" party and Steph motivated us with these 2 cards at the party - cute cards, huh?
After that party - had to find the "studio" and get busy - "Thanks Steph" - I needed that! Margie made the best "Ice Cream & Fruit" pies... YUM! I'll be hosting the September "Stampin Up" party - the theme will be Halloween - lots of treat ideas - so mark your calendars! I'll have lots of "make 'n takes" and treats to take home (It'll make me decorate "on time" hopefully... for the holiday!)

Gotta post another picture - Alex has finally earned the "approval" from his dad to officially MOW! He has done a great job (and he "likes" it!). KV was thrilled to have help in the yard... KV's super picky... I haven't received the "approval" yet (still lacking on the "pruning" issue also ): LOL!) - so I just get stuck with pulling weeds - YUK!

Here's a BEFORE pic of my newly painted classroom - before THIS YEAR's decoration! The air conditioner is OUT - boo!

The last two days have been very HOT in my classroom! Last week, a transformer blew and took out half of the high school's air conditioning units... hopefully the parts will be in and "in-use" BEFORE the 1st day of school! We're keeping our fingers crossed, anyways!

Hope all is well with you and yours! Thanks for stopping by! Come back often - hopefully with getting back to a regular schedule - my posting on the blog will improve! Have a great week! Hug the ones you love the most!

Woo Hoo....wish I could be as interesting at you! Would love to blog more.

Completely jealous that you got to spend the night in Ama....L would not stay. We begged, we pleaded, we whined, we cried....he did not budge!

Are you not teaching Art 2 this year? Garrett got his schedule and he has TWO ag classes!! What is up with that? He is soooo upset he is not having you!

Have a great year!
