I have put so much love and energy into my kids this year that it will be sad to watch them go. I admit there might be some tears shed by me and by them. If they cry then I won't be able to help it. I love their sweet attitudes. Some of them are genuniely sad that school is over because their summer's aren't as thrilling as ours might have been. Such simple joys of life. I will miss them but I will get to see them grow up in the next two years. Unlike this year (because I moved schools), I'll get to see them in the hallways, talk to them, and watch them mature and grow. I'm excited and I'm so proud of where they've come from!

Anyways....Ben was a groomsman and even wore the same (I think) tux with green as was at our wedding. He was so handsome! What a superb job he did standing up in front. I couldn't be more proud :).
We got to see lots of Grace friends and talk to everyone about what they're doing. Its crazy how much happens in people's lives in just two years out of college. Let's see, some are getting married, some having babies, some moving to another country, some finding new jobs or just continuing in thier current ones. But its always nice to see everyone and its full of laughs.

We took a shopping trip to downtown Vicksburg. Here is our sweet mother-in-law Pat with her two daughters-in-law. We love her!
Amanda's little girl Marin and I trying on hats at the store and blowing kisses.
All the Stroud grandchildren and their spouses and kids :).
I can't wait to go back. It was so different their our fast paced world of Houston. We loved it. What a blessing it was!!

Here, I am waiting for one to land on me. Come on little butterfly! You can't see it but one was flying all around me. It was quite exciting!
One has landed! Its on my shoulder and its black and white. Woo-hoo!!
We also go to see Katy and Joe this weekend. They were in town for a wedding and we got to eat with them at Niko Niko's, one of our faves in Houston. Yum greek food!
On another note, there are 3 weeks left of school. Its down to cleaning up, having fun, and keeping everyone sane. This summer, I've got things planned throughout including some staff developments, vacation, and spanish lessons! I'm going to be working on my spoken spanish with a girl from school and hopefully I'll be able to speak a lot more fluently in August! Adios muchachos! I'm excited to be a part of the blogging world. Let me know if you blog so I can add you to my friends and read your blogs!
Well, I can't believe it but there are 3 more weeks until the summer. Before you get all jealous, I won't be just chilling the entire summer. I have workshops and spanish tutoring lessons and I'm going to make some things for next year to make my life a lot more organized and less crazy during school. I drive myself crazy everyday looking for a marker in my classroom. I walk around the room searching and it gets everyone off track because then the kids start getting up and searching with me. You can imagine the chaos. I tried to fix this problem by tying the markers and erasers to the board but then they just got all tangled and in knots so that didn't work either. But I've got to do SOMETHING or I will go crazy.
That is one of my goals for the summer - find ways to be more organized at school. Soooo if you are teacher, or you just are an organized person naturally (as I am not - its a learned trait for me), I'd love the tips!
Well, I'll leave you on this note...hopefully I'll be writing soon :).
