It is slightly embarassing to me how long my "Evenings with Edward" post has been on my blog. It was meant to be up for a few days and then I would post about my FAMILY! Ha:)
The end to our summer has been full and eventful...
July 26th - Craig and I celebrated our 7th Anniversary:)
July 28-30 - Callie and I went to our 2nd Ranger game together and spent some time with the fam at the Four Seasons! (post to follow)
July 30-August 2 - I got to spend some MUCH needed time with my very pregnant Best Friend in Nashville.
*During this time, I fell in LOVE with the Hunger Games Series which I had to read for school. It is violent, it is raw, AND there is a love triangle:)*
July 30-August 7 - Callie was spoiled rotten by 4 grandparents and countless Aunts and Uncles. She was treated to daily swimming, a short order cook, homemade smoothies at 9:00pm, and ridiculously late bedtimes.
August 7 to present - We are trying to reverse the effects of Callie's week away! HA!
This is Callie's first day in a new class at school! She is SOOOO excited:)
I will have to post about all of her cuteness later. She is beyond precious and FUNNY!
BACK TO SCHOOL TIME! I have to say, I haven't dreaded it as much this year...I think that is a good thing. I WILL miss my lazy days and my athletic shorts, but I am excited about a terrific year.
I have this picture in my classroom. Here is a typical converstaion when a student first sees it.
Student: "Miss, those your kids."
Me: "REALLY?! Do I look old enough to have kids that old? Look more closely..."
Student: "THAT'S YOU!" What are you wearing?!"
Me: "I never said I was cool."
I LOVE THIS PICTURE! It is my first day of 6th grade and Lance's first day of 1st grade. Every time I look at it, I am reminded of how akward being a 6th grader can be, so I keep it as a reminder. Also, I think it is nice for my kiddos to see that I was once in their shoes...maybe not their shoes, but I am in my red socks and loafers:)
HAPPY BACK TO SCHOOL!
