Some Assembly Required (316-322)

Day 316

Aaron and I had a breakfast date of cold waffles. *Note to self: buy new toaster.

Day 317

One of my college professors gave us the advice of not being the last one in the building. I break that rule a lot.

Day 318

The fifth graders had a music recital today showing off compositions they wrote. The music teacher broke it into different times so the parents didn't have to attend a three hour recital. I was able to hear some of my students and I was so impressed at how our music teacher was able to get them to create something like that.

Day 319

Aaron and I had fun decorating for Thanksgiving.

Day 320

My in-laws came to visit and celebrate Thanksgiving early. We love being able to show off the town we love to our family.

Day 321

I don't know if you can see our "polar-bear" puppy, but she is that white thing having fun in the snow. We had fun playing fetch with snow-balls. We would throw them and Lucy would sometimes catch them and then immediately regret the cold.

Day 322

We ordered a fireplace and it came in-- in pieces. The directions said it would take an hour and it took way longer than that, mainly because the screws they gave us weren't very good. Here is the final project!

I Love Lucy

I am so mad with myself! Last week, I reset my phone because I got a virus on it and, consequently, I lost all the pictures I put on my phone for last week's blog. I have therefore not reached my goal of doing a blog every week.

Day 309

Today was a hot dog banquet for the 3-5 grade students who turned in a reading log showing that they read every day for six weeks straight. The teachers served the hot dogs, handed out certificates, and cleaned up afterwards. It was really neat seeing all of the supportive parents. Some of these kids have been doing this since they were in Kindergarten.

Day 310

Today was bitter-sweet, as we have officially switched my grown-up puppy to dog food. I was way too sad about my substitute baby growing up.

Day 311

We hosted small group at our house. Lucy loved the kids/ baby that came with the couples.

Day 312

I think I need to change the name of this blog to "I Love Lucy" because most of my posts are either about Lucy or food. Here is a picture of a toy we got for her. She figured out he quacks before we did.

Day 313

A sweet lady from our church gave Aaron and I a bunch of Christmas things. I pass by her house everyday on my way home from school and I have always admired it from the outside. The inside is even better. Check out this bathroom! I wish I had better picture-taking skills because these definitely don't do it justice.

Day 314

We had a business meeting where we talked money and ate sandwiches.

Day 315

The monthly drug-wise program was today The police officers talked to the kids about alcohol and tobacco.

My Husband is a School Widower (302-308)

Day 302

Today I was up at the school until 9:00 trying to get our checklist (grades) done. For a solid two weeks I have been going home after 7:00. All of the papers on the table are just for one subject.

Day 303

Our church had its fall festival. It was a lot of fun and some of my students showed up. I couldn't stay too long because I still had some grading to do. (Will it ever end!?)

Day 304

Today we celebrated someone's birthday in our small group. I made the mistake of eating pumpkin pie before knowing about a cake. In order to not bring a bad omen on the owner of the birthday, I ate pie and cake. You know, to make sure he has a great year. Or something like that.

Day 305

The Masked Rider from Texas Tech visited Seagraves Elementary today. The kids were really excited and it was nearly impossible to keep them paying attention while the Masked Rider was outside their classroom.

Day 306

Aaron and I visited Hobbs again today for dinner and a movie. Aaron and I saw "Ender's Game," which we have been looking forward to for a long time. Aaron got me into the book series and we were ecstatic when we heard there was going to be a movie made.

Day 307

Sorry for the "beautiful" picture. Aaron's hair was needing a haircut for a long time. Unfortately his barber (me) was super busy with her other job (see day 1). After watching a documentary about a performing-arts high school and being super jealous that I was never in a performing arts high school, Aaron got his ears lowered. I am always nervous when I cut his hair because I know I am going to mess up (see wedding photos).

Day 308

I don't know if you can tell, but the fire hydrant is watering the street. What a considerate hydrant, everyone else seems to avoid watering things that don't grow.
