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!
