I'm proud to say the little girl has 4 friends after the week and isn't worried anymore... the big girl still has the boyfriend though we don't hear much about him... and I got SO MUCH done this week as far as paperwork, etc in my office. It went very smoothly except for the one running full speed, head on collision of two students and the injuries that resulted...
And now we get a three day weekend! Jennifer my sweet niece and our friend Allison are coming tomorrow! I have good food and some girl fun planned. Sunday we're going to brave the crowd at the lake for some boating fun. Tomorrow morning I'm having breakfast with another teacher from Flower Mound who will be in town.... I just can't believe how many people come to Lubbock, never dreamed it...Glad they are all coming though!
On a different note, pray for my cousins and family in Miss. as they wait on hurricane Gustav. Apparently everyone is preparing, she had to beat out a another woman for the last two loaves of bread at the Walmart!
Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

We got up early and had breakfast together and prayed together before we started our school day. Now the first day of school has come and gone and everyone survived. I had a very quiet, uneventful first day. Hope that the second day goes as well!
The big girl had a great first day. Had friends in her classes, wasn't late to school which is her constant worry for some reason (she has never been late), and she came home with a 'boyfriend'. I liked it better when we just came home on the first day with a new friend instead of a BOYfriend!!! I'm glad I heard all about the day before the new boyfriend started texting her...we may never see her again...
The little girl even survived. She liked her teacher "but not as good as Mrs. ________" I guess last years teacher will never be topped! She let them bring drinks into class in the morning and call their parents if they wanted to make a play date...
She has even asked if she could ride the bus in the morning...yesterday crying, not wanting to ride the bus, today asking if she can... go figure...
I'm glad they had a good day but I am still sad that they started 4th and 7th grade, I just don't know how they got this big!!!!

I ran across this blog recently and saw today that she is hosting a "favorite things" swap. Recently I put together a couple of favorite things and sent to a friend and enjoyed thinking about what things I really enjoy that I could share... so I thought this sounded like a very fun thing to do and how fun to get a treat of others favorite things... check out her pretty pink blog and join the swap...

Chicken Salad and the French Apple Pie.

Last night I had dinner with a friend from Flower Mound who now lives out here also. I so enjoyed seeing someone I know... We sat at the restaurant and talked for three hours. It was a treat!
My girls have been taking care of themselves while I'm working this week so every time I'm home is pretty much spent making them clean up or refereeing from their constant battle!
The dog just jumped up and put her foot right in my coffee cup, guess that's my cue to get up and get moving. Happy Saturday.

Mike forgot his life vest and was forced (by me) to wear one of the standard issue orange ones...
The girls tubed and tubed and tubed....
We lost 1 hat, 1 visor and 1 anchor...and only one kid is sunburned... not bad for us ...again, we try but we're just not boat people.

I still have to find the box in the garage with the things for my office. I am actually looking forward to decorating a cute new nurse's office.
My sweet niece Jennifer left for Guatemala on a mission trip today. Her church goes to a orphanage there a couple of times a year to do work. I had planned to go last year during the medically focused trip but we were in the middle of the move. If you get a minute, pray for her and the group that is there this week. I wish I could go and love on those kids!
