It sure is Monday!

After a long weekend with the kids and strep throat, I am exhausted. I took the morning off today in order to allow more rest for Jackson; I did not realize how tired I really had become.

When I did get to work, I found out that one of our students' cancer has returned. I am so very sad.......but, I know that GOD will work through this obstacle!

Garrison's team won their basketball game on Saturday; G scored four points! I hated to miss a game, but Jackson was not really feeling up to attending!

Busy week ahead, as usual! Love to all....

It sure has been a crazy couple of weeks around our house and at work too!

Rodney is coaching Garrison's basketball team and let me just tell you.....he is doing okay, but is definitely better at BASEBALL! I was searching the internet, just goofing off, and look whose baseball card I found. It was pretty neat finding it online after all of these years.

Of course, if I offer any coaching advice, he says "Okay" and continues to do what he was doing.....oh, well!

Jackson asks me every day when I am going to sign him up for baseball. If you know him, then you know that he is always moving. He would rather bat than play the field and would rather play on the playground than to play the field. So, I keep telling him "Next week, Jack, next week". I guess we will just have to see if he is really serious this year.

Madison is proving herself to be quite a booger! If she does not want you to talk, she will scream louder than you. If she wants something, she screams. If you are eating something, you might as well hand it over to her; she is always hungry. On the other hand, she gets cuter each day and has the brightest smile first thing in the morning.

School is so busy with grades, parent-teacher conferences, and freshmen! I don't believe I have been busier than I am right now; I will not get bored this semester....that is for sure!

The "Desperate Housewife and one Husband" lunch bunch continues to brighten my day at work. Cepp doesn't really know what he has gotten himself into while dining with us. LD is on a diet and is doing great; LB and Liz are working out hard, but are still eating chocolate; JH was having a bad day today and tried to take AH's brownie; and MC is tired of grading essays!

So much for us right to all!

Happy New Year!

Wow! It seems like only yesterday that we were entering the year of 2008; now it is the sixth day of January in 2009. How time flies when families are as busy as we are.

Garrison is starting basketball up again this month and he seems to really enjoy it! Dad is coaching and looking really official wearing his whistle!

Jackson is such a good drawer; I cannot believe how well he colors at his age! He cannot wait until kindergarten, so he says.

Madison had a wonderful visit from Santa! She has sure been busy playing with all of her good stuff too! Her favorite thing right now is the bunny that was brought home the other day! I just hope that "Addie" does not get an urge to bite Moo's fingers.

I hope this post finds everyone doing well! Love to ALL!
