Am I blessed or what? Just look at those BLUE eyes!
After Sunday School we went to see the Astros play the Phillies. It was a good game-at first. Then the Phillies scored like five or six runs in one inning and won the game. Despite the loss, we had a good time.

Lindsey won the Star Chapter Farmer buckle this year as a sophomore! She worked really hard in her speaking contests and showing her steer this year. I am a sorry mom for not bringing my camera to the banquet tonight. She was a good sport about it and let me take her picture here at home. I'll post her "official" picture when it comes out in the newspaper! Congratulations, Lindsey!

Todd and I traveled to Lufkin to see our alma mater play in the regional quarter finals in baseball yesterday. It was a good game and the Cougars won the series in 2 games. They will play New Boston (near Texarkana) next week.
Imagine about 75 of these water bottles filled with blue and white beads shaking constantly during the Buna-Central Heights baseball playoff game (oh, and one cow bell ringing)! It makes me appreciate my second grade class while they are talking! Cougar fans had lots of spirit. The opposing team was having a hard time concentrating.

Denise brought this trunk over for me to paint a few weeks ago. She uses it as a coffee table, and wanted a checkerboard on top. The ovals painted on the top are painted with chalkboard paint so it can be written on to keep scores. I am excited about the way it turned out.

College, school, work, and the social life have been hectic for us, and we don't slow down near enough to tell our mom how much we love her and how much she means to us! Boy I never realized how much work it is to manage one person yet she managed to handle all 3 of us!! The phrases "I've been working all day and I just want to sit down" or "I just vacuumed this floor!" mean so much more to me now!!! It's true at times I feel like I am turning into my mother, but that isn't bad at all!! Mom we are very lucky that God has blessed you in our lives! We love you so much
Sorry the pictures are so blurry...it was the best I could do!

One of our butterflies has hatched! Okay, I have to tell this story. Mrs. King's class took out their butterfly yesterday to release it. Well, as the kids were watching the butterfly flit and flutter in the air, a bird swoops down and snatches the butterfly in mid air. The students were mortified! Mrs. King, without missing a beat, takes the opportunity to teach the kids about how the food chain works! Thankfully, we did not have a tragic release with our butterfly.
