Summer I come!

Tomorrow is the last day of school! I have had so much fun teaching this year...I'm sad to see it end. I never thought I'd have a job where I was excited to go to work everyday. I had a really great class, and I'll really miss them. I had a great partner I worked with, who will be going full-time next year, so I'll really miss working along side her. My new partner will be a lot of fun, so I'm excited to work with her. I come!

Winding down

Well, this school year is winding down. Only one more week! This last week we had our 1st grade program where we sang about having good manners. The kids were great! It was also teacher appreciation week and I got spoiled with A LOT of flowers and plants and candy. What sweet kids I get to be with everyday!

One of the dogs

One of Gavin's favorite places to hang out is on the dog bed. I catch him in their room laying in their bed every once in a while. He also likes their toys, and they like his..aah, the joys of having dogs.

Bee's Game and Dinner

We went to the Bee's game yesterday...the Jr. Bee's Game. Damon has been having fun learning how to play baseball. Yesterday it was his last game, so we all went up to watch his game. It was also my Dad's birthday, so we went out to dinner after to Famous Dave's to celebrate.

We all pitched in and got my Dad an ipod. My dad walks to school everyday when it is cold and rides his bike when it is warm. He has done that for as many years that I can remember. When I was in Jr. High, I remember having to always run to catch up to him (I was a little slow). Not too long ago, he was given an MP3 player that he loved listening to when he would walk to school, but in the cold it doesn't work very well, and the battery doesn't last very long, so he was pretty excited about his ipod shuffle.

Casey's sister, Tiffny, had her 5th baby on May 5th. We were fighting colds last week so we finally were able to see little Roxi today. It was fun holding a tiny is hard to think Gavin was this small! Gavin wanted to touch her, but he doesn't know how to be gentle, so I had to keep a close eye on him.

Mother's Day

I had a wonderful Mother's Day! Casey made me breakfast, which I think he cooks better then me, so it was good! Later, we went to visit family and talk to Logan! This is his last phone call before he comes home. It was god hearing his voice. Only 45 more days and he comes home!

For Mother's Day, Casey got me flowers for the yard, so on Saturday I was able to plant some of them. I love this time of year!

Welcome back puppy!

Gavin loves stuffed animals, but his FAVORITE stuffed animal had to take a trip to the washer because he thought it would be funny to throw it in the dog water. After I washed it and gave it back to him, he hasn't let it leave his side. He carries it wherever he goes. I think it is cute that he is attatched to it, but I'm glad he isn't too attatched that he can't sleep or go anywhere without it.


Gavin loves it when it is laundry day (I don't share the same feelings). The first thing he does is climbs into the basket and then starts pulling things out of the basket. Someday Gavin, it will be your job!

He's cruising!

Gavin loves his little Clifford car he got for his Birthday. He can go pretty fast on it!
