Lots Going On!

We took the kids fishing one Saturday morning.  The following photos make the morning look so tranquil.  It was actually a little stressful.  Graydon's first cast got stuck in a tree.  Then his line got tangled.  That wasn't the only time that happened.  But everyone at least got a little turn.

Later that day, our church had a community cook-out.  Free food and games.  We had a GREAT turnout!

Bella wanted me to take her photo here.  She was practicing her smile for picture day the following morning.

I got a job! After eight years as a stay-at-home-mom, I'm back to work as a teacher's aide at the kids' school.  This is a job that I planned to volunteer doing; but when actual paid positions became available, I applied and was offered a job!  I'm working with the first grade classes and LOVE it so far!  It's a perfect "mom job" since I have all of the same days off/vacations as the kids.

Bella's class had a "Steve Urkel Day".  Their teacher rewarded them with a special day for good behavior.  This was what they chose.  I have NO idea how any of them even know who Steve Urkel is.

I had an awesome birthday celebration this year.  Due to soccer games and a wedding rehearsal that Andy was a part of, we celebrated my birthday a day early.  The kids had a grand greeting for me when I arrived at the Meade's house.

I turned the big 3-5!

My big gift was a new pair of cowboy books.  LOVE them!  I don't have any photos of me wearing them yet, but they are my far my favorite foot accessory!

Such a happy birthday!
