Kristen managed to get into the drawers where her American Girl Bitty Baby and accessories had to put away. She took everything out and played with it, so I made her gather everything back together and try to put all of the supplies away the right way. She really loved that doll.

Yet another morning of finding Kristen asleep on her floor. I wonder why she seems to think that she needs to sleep on the floor.

Not sure why, but the city decided to start doing work on the road in front of the high school that I teach at just a week before the school year ended. It is already a dangerous place at the end of the day, now it has gotten worse. Why couldn't they have waited. Argggg.

Every year we purchase these cards. What a great deal, the money goes to a charity and then we receive all kinds of discounts for the year. Usually saving much more than we spent to buy the cards

Students who have perfect attendance are allowed to skip the final exams at Clinton High. Sarah has had perfect attendance all year, but I only allowed her to skip this trimester's exams so that she could get ready for her trip to Hawaii.

Sarah has a toe that looks like it might be getting a little bit of an infection. Had her soak the toe for a couple of days to get rid of the infection before she heads to Hawaii.

Getting the gas tank for the grill filled. Had to do this since we are planning a big BBQ for memorial day and ran out of gas.

They are tearing up the gym floor at the school I teach at. Since my husband was on the state champion basketball team and played on this same floor, I had to take a picture of the floor and what it looks like now.

Final choir concert of the year. Sarah has really enjoyed being in choir this year and was sad to see the year come to an end.

Just found out that this is the last time we will see Sarah wearing the red robe with black stole. Earlier this spring she auditioned for A'Capella choir and just found out that she made it. Way to go Sarah.

Since my first cards were so successful I decided to try my hand at making some graduation cards. I was able to make them in the different schools colors.

Sarah with a friend who has become like a big brother to her. Kurt has known John for 3 years now since John has helped him with football and basketball games.

The past week has been so hectic and busy that I need several posts to get all of the important stuff showcased. Wednesday the 13th was the final band concert for this year. Sarah has enjoyed playing Clarinet in the Concert Band. The next time she has a concert, I won't be able to hear it as they will be performing at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii.

Graduation season is upon us. We had a couple of parties to attend at Eagle Point Lodge. The Lodge has such a great view of the Mississippi, that I couldn't help but post a picture of the view from the Lodge.

I figure that 3.0 club should be good for two days worth of pictures. Yesterday I posted her certificate, tonight is Sarah's letter.

Tonight was 3.0 club induction. Sarah was inducted as a freshman. Way to go Sarah. All of the hard work pays off.

Since having my candle party, I have been trying to use up all of my old candles. This one kind of had a life of it's own and took on a different shape.

This is the last layout I completed for NSD. There was still 3.5 hours to go, but I crashed. I think all of the stress from the weekend caught up with me. Home and out cold by 10:00

Friday, May 1, 2009


The first layout I completed for NSD (weekend) I spent most of the day at the emergency room with my father in law, but did make it to the store's crop. Had a great time, until I was called back to the hospital at 10:45 pm. What a long day
