I can't believe it...

This year has flown by! I have been so blessed with the group of students I had this year. We had a lot of fun. Yesterday was the last day of school. It was bittersweet and I am proud of the growth my students made this year. I was truly blessed with the gifts I received: $110 from the parents, $30 gift card to Target (my favorite store ever!), a Willow Tree figurine (which I collect and love), a yankee candle and some handmade cards.

Brad and I are looking forward to our time together and are hoping to set into a summer routine quickly so we don't sleep the summer away. Dad is coming in June as well as a couple workshops to keep me busy that month. In July, we are going to an Astros game with some friends on our anniversary! It will be cool to watch them play since we grew up watching their spring training. I am running Jump Start, a 2 week summer school program at my school at the end of July. We have a few things to keep busy with. I plan to spend some time at the pool and read some books. R & R here I come!

Relay for Life

Thank you to everybody that donated to Relay for Life. I have posted some pictures of the cape that I made in honor of all my family members and friends that have battled cancer. It was amazing to see the survivor's and the community coming together to raise money to fight this horrific disease. Our school raised over $3000 for cancer research!

We have 3 weeks left of school and then I will have some R & R time by the pool! Brad is still looking for a job and we are waiting for the right door to open up. Daisy is enjoying her time home with Daddy and anxiously waits for mommy to get home from work every day. She has even been sleeping in the bed at night and has become quite the princess.
