Year #11

Welcome Back to School
This week started my 11th year of teaching and I can hardly believe it. Although I was sad to see summer go, this really was a great week. I was a little hesistant starting this year because I am coaching basketball again. I have enjoyed getting back in the gym and really feel like I never was gone.
I can not believe my baby started Kinder this year. He is loving school so far and really enjoys riding the bus each day after school. They are so cute, about 10 little kiddos ride the bus from the elementary to the high school because all of their parents work there. They come running through the halls each afternoon just giggling and talking the whole way to the classrooms.
My little diva is now in the 3rd grade and loves school as always. She is a little angel at school and just wants to please everyone. She is enjoying changing classrooms this year for the first time and loves both of her teachers.
Scott started at his new school this year in town and loves it.
Wishing you a great new year!!

Just being a little emotional

Well as I sit here on this Sunday afternoon, I have a million last minute things I need to get done before my summer is officially over. Yet, I just sit here and think of how sad I really am. Don't get me wrong I feel so blessed to have a job that I absolutely love, but man I love summer and I have truly loved being with my kids this summer. As I said in an earlier post, last summer I didn't get to enjoy time and fun with my kids because I had 3 different surgeries; therefore, this summer I promised myself I would make that up to my children. And we did!! My two kids make me feel so proud each day. I am truly blessed to be called their mom. We started the summer off with a great family vacation in San Diego and Newport Beach where they cheered me on to complete my first marathon ever and where were able to spend time with precious friends. When we came home from vacation, we basically went to Schlitterbahn once or twice a week and just enjoyed playing at home. The first week of July brought another great year at church camp where my precious girl sang in front of 400+ people and man did that make mama proud. After church camp, we have just enjoyed the river and schlitterbahn several days a week. To wrap up the summer, we were blessed to go on an amazing beach vacation with my family. That all being said, I can't help but feel a little sad that it is all over. I think another reason why I feel sadness is that my baby is going to Kindergarden this year and my little princess is in 3rd grade, Yes I said 3rd grade. As I start my eleventh year of teaching tomorrow, I am so excited to be coaching basketball again. I just wish I could sleep until 8 each day then go to school:) Anyway I wish everyone a great upcoming school year and thank you God for such a wonderful summer.

My little Golfer

This past week Prestley had the New Braunfels city championship. I am having so much fun watching her play golf. I never was a golfer, so I was kind of dreading sitting there for hours upon hours watching her in the 100 degree weather. I was completely wrong!! This is so much fun and she is having a blast. This was her 5th tournament of her short "career" and she did her best ever. In 12 holes she shot an 87 and for an 8 year old, that is awesome. I love watching her and her daddy share these precious moments and know there will be many many more throughout the years. Pryce has been a real trooper throughout the summer as well. Bless his heart, he sits in the cart and watches his big sister and when he gets tired of doing that he gets his golf clubs and practices his swing as well. Poor thing, on Tuesday his mom ran over his foot in the golf cart and really thought it was seriously hurt. It wasn't, he is tough!!! I am loving being a mom and watching my children do what they love. Good job Pres!!!
I love this picture. This is the three girls finishing their first
round and shaking hands. I love it!!

Concentrating!!! This is my all time favorite picture
of her and her daddy!!

Hope you all have a great rest of your week. Happy Thursday!
In Him,

Port A 2010

This past weekend we were able to go to Port A with all of my family. It was so much fun. The kids absolutely love the beach and this summer they got to play with their cousins on the beach. This was our last Hoorah before school starts. Summer is officially over, but what a great summer we have had. Thank you Mom, Dad, Mitzi and Clint for sharing such a great weekend with us.


We have had season passes for three summers now and I have yet to take my camera to the park to take pictures of my kids. We spend more than 70% of our summer there so I figure I need to take pictures. Last Tuesday the kids and I found a pool that belongs to schlitterbahn, so we went for a few hours and I brought my camera.
These are the parts of being a school teacher/coach that I love. SUMMER VACATION. I have really enjoyed this summer with my kids. I feel like we have spent a lot more time together doing a lot of fun things. I love living this close to Schlitterbahn and the river because my kids are in the water almost everyday. Thank you Pryce and Prestley for a great summer.
