Go Away Fay!

The tropical storm that just won't go away! Is it just me or did today seem worse than yesterday? Not that it was really bad, but the RAIN, the constant rain! I'm just ready to see sunshine in the sunshine state! Go away Fay!

The girls went back to school today and had another EXCELLENT day. I can't say enough about how thrilled I am with the public school Lexi goes to. I have now heard from 3 former teachers at that school and the PTA president who have all said that Lexi has the GREATEST teacher and I believe them. She is truly wonderful and we are so blessed! Lexi adores her. I know God gave us the best of the best!!! Today, she came home with mouse ears on and her face was painted like a mouse face. She said they acted out a story and all the children got to be little mice. They learned to be "quiet as a mouse". I will forever cherish the memory of driving up to the carpool lane today and seeing my little cutie pie standing in the line next to all those big kids and she had on her little mouse ears, with her little pink nose and whiskers. It was such an adorable view from my front windshield. And tonight at church, she got to meet her AWANA teacher for the first time. She has the sweetest mommy as her teacher. Her name is Ms. Martha. We love Ms. Martha. She's so nurturing and so southern and so sweet so cute, I just want to squeeze her every time I see her. Yes, I'm talking about Ms. Martha, not Lexi. Although Lexi is definitely squeezable too! And starting in two weeks, I'm going to be Lexi's Sunday School teacher. She is just going to have the BEST year I'm telling you! A great school teacher, a great AWANA teacher, and her mommy on Sundays! You just can't beat that!

Maybe you should start bringing your camera in the car line so you can take pictures of picking her up? :)

How in the world did that lady paint EVERY kids face? Amazing!

And Mrs. Martha is WONDERFUL! I LOVE HER, too! Please tell her I said hi.

How is WW by the way?

Oh, weight watchers...hmmm...yeah. Not so great. I quit after just one week! Talk about the biggest loser! That would be me!

I'm so glad all is going so well for you! We've had Fay-like weather here too, it has been raining for 3 days straight, no wind though. Oh, I left staff development early today (shhh) and came home so Stephen could nap. Then I snuggled up on the couch with my little Abby while she napped. The napping weather made me do it!

That is great....I love teachers that are creative that way....

last week at the children's hospital, a piano teacher brought her students to play for the sick kids there and they all played Disney music and dressed liek the character's song they were playing. It was so cute....especially the little girl dressed like Jasmine and the itty bitty boy that played the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse song and even had a tail!!!
