Hope y'all are having a great day - I'm off to change mine into that now.

After practice, if you're lucky, you can get a few autographs. The boys did pretty well this year and B was able to add about 7 new names to his Panther football. He was so excited.
It was a fun and very hot day. Thanks to the Panther's for putting on a great show. Good luck this season!

We even had a new student show up ready to learn.
The new girl was really friendly and fit in well with the class.
Look at all of that colorful goodness. I just love brand new crayons - it's a sickness...really.
Ah....school days, school days.
Here's hoping your children have a great school year.

A complete mess!
We've also got an important day on Monday - the First Day of School.
Needless to say, this Saturday is going to be spent getting our house back in order and re-adjusting lesson plans.
Should be a fun and productive day.
With everything going on around here lately, I've forgotten to mention that someone in our house went from this:
Look who's got glasses now. Isn't she too cute?
Ok, I've got to get busy. Hope your weekend is off to a great start.

Funeral arrangements to make, family and friends to see and more BBQ and fried chicken than I've ever seen to eat. (Nobody does funeral food like southerners.)
(Photographs that we displayed during the visitation.)
He may have technically been just my step-dad, but he was the only father I really ever had and he will be missed dearly.

Taking a blogging break to say "good-bye" to a great man.
As some of you may know, my step-father had been having health problems for a while and it's with a heavy heart that I have to tell you he passed away this morning.
He'd been living with dialysis and heart issues for the last few months and on Wednesday morning he had another severe heart attack while at home.
After two days in ICU we said "We love you" for the last time and he went to be with our Lord and Savior.
The next few days will be filled with lots of tears, hugs and yes, laughter.
He always was making everyone laugh at any situation and we can't celebrate his life without laughing ourselves.
I hope all of you are doing well and I'll be back to visit when we get back home.
For now, I'll ask that you pray for peace for my mother who will be struggling to deal with life on her own again.

Don't you recognize Hannah Montana & Nick Jonas??
Already thinking Halloween costumes.
So long summer vacation - it's time to hit the books again.
We do have one last trip planned for this weekend. We'll give summer break a good send-off and come back ready to tackle 6th and 3rd grades.
