A different week

So, its been an off week for us. Odd, different, totally out of routine. Ben had the swine Flu this week. It all started on Friday afternoon. He went to the men's retreat feeling ok but got worse throughout the weekend. (If your husband went to the men's retreat and is now sick, we apologize). But he's feeling much better now and will for sure return to work on Monday.

I have been sleeping in the guest bed so that I have as good a chance as possible to not get it. It's actually a really comfortable bed. Well a little too comfortable and too quiet I guess because this morning I woke up 2 HOURS late! Ahhh! I set my alarm but then forgot to touch the little button that turns it ON. I woke up unknowingly at 7:12 and remember thinking it was abnormally light. Not good.

On a side note, one of my sweet girls gave a speech in class and she used the word ya'll! My bilingual kids are growing up to be wonderful Texans. Pray that I don't wake up sick in the morning!

Santa Fe and more...

So I think its time to get back to blogging. I've been in school about 6 weeks now and I feel like I'm in a routine. I love my kids and the teachers I work with. I think its going to be a good year. Last weekend, we enjoyed a weekend away from home in Santa Fe. We saw the historical sights around the town Plaza and then drove up into the mountains. We rode up on a gondola to the top of Ski Santa Fe (where there is no snow right now), and then hiked down.

This weekend, I had the wonderful treat of my friend Jamie coming to visit. She lives in Dallas. We have been friends since 2nd grade and have gone through so many things together. She was the maid of honor in my wedding and its always a delight to spend time together. We did all the normal girly things, but we got to do them together. Such as...delicious desserts, shopping, yummy lunch, several girl movies at home and in the theatre, hair coloring, and lots of talking in between. So fun. Now its back to real life. I've got 2 loads of laundry in the works and one yet to be done.

I leave you with one picture to make you smile. Or at least the real life version made me smile. Somehow, this is his favorite way to sleep. I hope that today you get a nap or some chill time that makes you as relaxed as Carlos looks.
